I've been carrying this guy around for a few weeks (making small adjustments here and there) and the joints have held up solidly under very heavy play and general pocket abuse. The range of motion is pretty good, and the Swing Joints add a neat aspect to the actual feel of the figure in hand.
Originally I had a different chest assembly, but something about the painted areas on the Hub top looked neat in conjunction with the scarf "belt". The shape brings a unique look to the midsection, as opposed to the combination that was initially there, which was a stack consisting of a small axis disc and a Gobon disc. I also had complete small Axis Joints at the shoulders and hips for a bit, but I kind of like the above construction a little more now.
I'll probably change it around again next week.
Hope you guys get a kick out of this build!

The 2 Tails Galactic Ginza (pictured above) is limited to only 2 pieces. It will retail for $250.00. The ESC x Frombies Crossover figure - Lurker Midori - is limited to only 16 pieces, retailing for $50.00.
"A Kaiju Romance" is a series of illustrations from Chris Lee featuring "the Gamera and Godzilla franchises falling in love in unexpected ways" - each rendered and printed on a 5x5" (12.7x12.7cm) card, hand-signed by the artist.
Priced at US$10 per, you can choose your own designs with the drop-down menu at the purchase page. I had initially baulked at the size of the print when I opened the envelope, but the sheer awesomeness of the image more than made up for it LOL

The Red Army Men "Fire Eater" Soldier is made up of 15 separate parts and will also run you $7.00.
Finally, the Banigoth Winter Operations figure has 15 separate parts and will run you (guess...) $7.00. (probably my favorite of the bunch)
Ben Spencer's latest figure, Sgt. Krugg, Hippo Titan Soldier drops at noon CDT on 05.24.13 for US$85 each, exclusively from The Galaxxor Online Store - limited to an edition of 5 and will never be released in this colorway ever again.
>"He features 3 points of magnetic articulation (waist and shoulders), as well as a blunderbuss accessory, which can be held in his hand or magnetically mounted on his hip or back. The added element of the magnetic articulation adds a really cool "play" value to The Hippo Titan Soldier, which is an exciting new thing for my toys. It's also worth noting that the magnet system is completely compatible with all ManOrMonster? figures, including the awesome Warlords of Wor line."Sgt. Krugg was designed, sculpted and mashed up by Ben Spencer and engineered and produced in resin by ManOrMonster? Studios.
