If you need to have this in your collection, put it on your shelf as quickly as possible and never touch it again. This set is a nightmare to handle. It is an example that not all monsters need super duper articulation.
$89.99 is the MSRP.... $69.99 should be the MSRP. This set is fantastic in theory, but is overly neutral in application.
Note there are no sculpting issues to note here, so there is NO problem there.
The smallest aggregate in the set is totally fine. Next to no articulation, but it's beautiful to look at. The large aggregate.... If you pop one of the smaller legs off, it can be an absolute nightmare to get it back on, since the body is made of a hard plastic, and the ball for the leg may not fit properly back into the socket. It can make posing an absolute nightmare. The flying form is fine, though there is some restriction to the articulation, as it's very basic. They also followed improper form similar to the adult Destoroyah with red eyes, which should be yellow.
What's the final nail in the coffin for this set for the average collector? If you want a fully usable set, you need to spend $10+ more to get a flight stand because, guess what, one is not included with the set. You need to spend over $90 to get a functioning set.
Overall, the product itself meets the minimum requirements to actually have redeeming qualities, but everything considered, only the diehard S.H. MonsterArts fans or Destoroyah fans should get this set. It is absolutely not worth the even lowered price of $84.99.

Standing at 1.5 inches, the Crustacean form is brilliantly sculpted by veteran monster sculptor Yuji Sakai. Being the smallest figure of the set, it's extremely detailed. The overall design captures what the outer shell of a crustacean would really look like, giving it a little boost of realism. The grooves and bumps in the sculpt really make it a neat little figure. Though these are excellent qualities, it does suffer some minor flaws due to mass production. My main gripe concerns the mandibles. Unlike the Aggregate form, they're rather blunt and cartoony. Other than that, this is a fairly well done adaptation for a figure of this size.
The Aggregate form is exceptionally sculpted by Shin'ichi Wakasa. Standing at 2.3 inches, the Aggregate looks just like its movie screen counterpart. Applying similar concepts as those used in the Crustacean form, the figure retains that shell-like reflective armor. The legs, neck, and pinchers are what really shine. The immense amount of details used to give that armored look is just spectacular. The mandibles on the Aggregate are spot-on unlike those of the Crustacean. I don't really have any gripes with this sculpt - it's fantastic.
3.5 inches in length, the Flying form is definitely the showstopper of the set.Read more ›
Given that the sizing is somewhat off, however, leads to amazing articulation and detail that simply couldn't be found in smaller figures.Shame they stopped making the boxes with the see-through fronts, as now you have to open the box to inspect everything. Just makes it that much more fun I suppose!
Thanks for reading!
