X Review: Ultimate Flint

review-sculpt01

Overall, the sculpt isn’t terrible. It’s reusing Retaliation Mouse primarily, with a different head, arms, and some changes to accessories. The upside is that the mold was decently poseable, and looked modern military. The downside is that stupid neck-scarf thing, which just looks absolutely ridiculous. It didn’t look good on Mouse, and it doesn’t look good here. They should have gone straight-up Shock Trooper torso and omitted using this version completely.

Otherwise, the short-sleeved badass with a shotgun look is certainly achieved, despite the flaws, and has all the detail in the mold that was there on Mouse.

review-articulation01

The articulation isn’t bad at all. The arms are less bulky than, say, Duke’s, so he poses better with a weapon. In fact, he poses better than Mouse with the vest on, who had some issues posing realistically with a weapon. I’m not certain if it’s a result of better arms and some minor retooling on the vest, or just a luck of the draw. Granted, it wasn’t perfect. Certainly doesn’t look as great as it might with some attention given via the Obi-Way, but it works well enough unmodded.

Head, shoulders, elbows, swivel-and-bend wrists, torso, hips, double-knees, and rocker-ankles. I think he’d benefit a bit from the normal ankles as a non-ninja, but they aren’t as off-putting on this figure as they can be on others.
