I love my Metal head. Other than the turtles this is the only other figure in this line that I've picked up. Of course I do plan on repainting him to give him a worn metallic look. Also, my figure had that same chip on his lower lip.
Interesting. I wonder if it's an issue with the mold then. I wonder if everyone's figure has that little chip? Either way, I do still really like him. Cool that you're going to repaint him! I've seen a few amazing repaints of this figure already!
My Metalhead does not have any chips or scuffs on the lip.
That's good to hear!
I was going to ask if the Krang would fit on top of his head, but you have that covered nicely.
Still, is the most important action feature present? Being able to look at April without her noticing? 😉
I was hoping Metalhead would be more articulated like the turtles and I was disappointed that there wasn't a metallic paint scheme, but I still like this figure. Feels like they missed out on making a fantastic update.
While I LOVE the metallics of the vintage figure (I like shiny things!), I almost can't hold that against this new figure, because it's not really meant to be an update of the vintage figure, but an all-new take on the character, just like the vintage figure was an all-new take on the Mirage comics version. 🙂 But no doubt metallics still would have been sweet.
I really wish the articulation was just like the Turtles as well. I wish this whole line was equal as far as articulation goes.
I haven't bought most of the figures because of the lack of articulation. Turtles, Metalhead, and Dog Pound. I've always liked the Metalhead figure and Dog Pound was just a neat figure. He feels really solid, which is cool. If the lack of articulation continues I will probably only get Bebop and Rocksteady. Casey Jones would just be lame if he's not fully articulated. Thanks for the reviews!
His knee pads look like cheese!!
Apparently one of the episodes I missed.
It was on 2 Saturdays ago. 🙂
I missed at least that many episodes, maybe three.
