Ugh, I guess you CAN have too much chrome. How did Buster pull it off so well?

Great paint job. Are those articulated hands?Or some kind of clip ons? The one thing that would push him over the edge would be if the head had a swith that would open or close the faceplate like the visors on the human alliance figures(speaking of those, HA Sideways with Alice is long overdue).

As tired as I am of movie figs, I gotta admit, that looks really effin' good.

The only thing I don't understand...it looks like hands (the standard, non-articulated ones) and possibly the stacks and shoulder flaps (might just be the way the light is hitting them, though) look to be different colors than the metallic silver the rest of it is. Would be nice if it was all that nice, shiny silver. Luckily, I suspect this will be well over $100 putting it out of my willing to buy price range, but I would actually be pretty tempted at around $100 or less.

Looks gorgeous in all that silver.

He doesn't. Those are aftermarket hands.

Feel much better about not buying him now. As cool as the silver paint apps are, I've already got Buster Prime.

It's beautiful. I just hope they're around long enough until I have some money spare. I really wish it actually came with those articulated hands.

Not certain if these are them sure, but you can get some made on shapeways. Have to assemble and paint yourself though.

The hands are by UFO, and are on BBTS.


Do not buy the shapeways one's they are crap! and take too much time to make right and are extremely loose!.
The UFO ones are tight, and color matched!

I don't know? From the pictures, Shapeways ver. 2 look much nicer and can hold mechtech Weapons.

I hope this comes to Amazon!

I pre-ordered the exclusive Jetwing Prime months ago (now that I think about it, WHEN exactly is that supposed to ship?!) and would order this in a heartbeat if the price was the same as JW. A hundred bucks shipped I can handle. Almost 200 bucks shipped, ehhh not so much.

Nice figure though.
