I love the design of this

I love the design of this guy, and the Tetsujin style paint scheme and torso just make it all the more appealing. Looking at the top and bottom, they almost look like they're a part of two different toys entirely.

Thanks! I'm glad you picked

Thanks! I'm glad you picked up on that... I think the way Mori has added on things to his original basic design to create new characters is really fascinating... you'll get to see loads more variations tomorrow with my big Chaos retrospective, as well as some of the other characters I have in the pipe.

I do have to ask though, how

I do have to ask though, how is the head articulation on it? I would think it would be pretty limited based on that huge drape.

Well, it's articulated at

Well, it's articulated at the shoulders, but as I said above, the head-piece is not really attached, and floats on top of the shoulders using two pieces of foam for tension, so you can raise and lower and tilt it and get all sorts of expression while still being able to move the arms... obviously you can't move them all the way around, but it works.

Hm... Curious. I think I understand what you mean, but I feel like I need to actually see it for myself to get a grasp on how it looks and what not.

Fair enough... it's probably

Fair enough... it's probably something I should have included in the review... I can add a pic of how it works the next time I am home to take a photo. I didn't bring any Bigaros to school with me.

EDIT: I've got this photo from when I finished the custom, fighting another Bigaro I have (Gold Mist), which I thought looked alot like Black Ox... you can see how the head piece comes off. There's a piece of foam in the front and back of the cowl that press against the chest and back to keep it in place:
