Excellent figure from an excellent property
on July 11, 2013
Crimson Typhoon is unique among the other Jaegers in the film 'Pacific Rim' for having 3 pilots, and unique among NECA's Pacific Rim toyline in that it boasts the highest number of articulated joints (I counted 20 points of articulation) - due in no small part to it's 3rd arm, which you will find seperated from the body of the mech in the packaging. It snaps on quickly with a flexible ball joint.
All of NECA's Pacific Rim figures are incredibly sturdy, and Crimson Typhoon is no exception. It features a striking read paint job with beautiful Cantonese dentailing. This figure's joints are pleasantly stiff and highly posable. The only real complaint I have is that its feet do not rotate horizontally, preventing the mech from planting its feet firmly on the ground at a wide stance. It can be tricky finding the right stance to get his feet planted firmly on the ground. That said, contrary to what a fellow reviewer has stated, I had no difficulty standing Typhoon with his legs fully extended.
Purchasing this figure in anticipation of the movie has made me want to collect the rest of this very quality figure line. I highly recommend this figure for collectors and kids at heart.
