A great collectible figure! (with some considerable problems),
This review is from: NECA Series 1 Pacific Rim "Gipsy Danger" 7" Deluxe Action Figure (Toy)
First off please note, this is NOT a bad product. I do not regret my decision of buying Gypsy Danger. There are just a few problems with this figure that make it LESS GREAT overall (thus the 3-star rating).
Getting to the point. I rate the toy the following:
In terms of DETAIL: 5 stars! Nowadays many action figures are sculpted and/or painted with average to mediocre quality. But NECA has done an amazing job with these Pacific Rim action toys!
In terms of Playability (and Posability): 3 stars. This figure has many points of articulation, unfortunately, because of its great detail and attention to aesthetics, the joints are very limited. The joints are not very stiff, but they can late get more loose than desired.
In terms of durability: 3 stars. This seems to be a problem with all the Gypsy Danger figures (since another user who reviewed this figure mentioned this problem also): the figure NOT 100% unbreakable. In this case behind Gypsy's left arm, there is a piece (its left back thruster) that broke off (I'm guessing it can be glued back with not much effort). Also I tried to rotate/move the head and it popped out of its ball joint, but I was able to pop it back in. Other than that, no other problems with pieces falling off.
There are a few other very minor problems with it, but they are nothing to majorly concerned about.
Overall, if you really like Mechas, Kaijus or the movie Pacific Rim (I LOVED the movie), and you do not mind the problems mentioned above then you will not regret purchasing this Gypsy Danger figure!
NOTE: More figures (Jaegers and Kaiju) may soon come out! They may release a battle-damaged Gypsy Danger w/battle sword, mark V Striker Eureka, and the kaiju nicknamed Leatherback (gorilla-type Kaiju with an awesome biological EMP weapon on it's back).
