Personally, I love the Valkyrie I own. To be fair, I knew what I was dealing with when I bought it, so I had no expectations. Still, she ended up surprising me. Even though she's not perfect, she's quite an impressive piece to me and looks nice in my collection.
I'm willing to give them a shot on this guy. However, you do make a valid point about Valk being poorly made. I got lucky, I know this. There were many more who weren't. Breakages, glues not holding, bad paint apps, etc.
It *looks* more sturdy, though. They're at least using screws this time, instead of plastic everything and a bunch of glue. He could be hollow crap, but that plastic looks plenty dense to me. Perhaps they learned their lessons and heard the cries of the public?
The tail, however...it looks a bit sketchy. I can't tell if that's flash from the camera, or stressmarks on the hinges...
Still, if it's an affordable price and it's as good as Valk, or even better, I'll buy it.
