this piece was always a dream that because of the repaint release was made possible. I do love the look of it, but like getter 1 the chest is a hot mess...i.e.randomly pops off and the metal pegs dont fit in the holes at all on one side. The good news is that the scarf holds the chest piece firmly in it wont fall off and chip like its red brethren. Also the price with shipping ends up alot more. I also had a problem that the peg for the forearm blade was too small or something and it dropped off arm very easily. Just like my red fewture's cape does not fit in well and the maelstrom that was shin getters shattering wings. Basically, your in for a great looking piece and wonderful die-cast content but some production issues that will make things pop off and not fit quite right...if that is ok for 400 dollars then get it. For me, I love the 1st two attributes so much I over look the latter readily.

An excellent review Josh! The

An excellent review Josh!
The fire imagery is particularly striking.
I was comfortable passing on this, as I have the original.
However... I was not aware that they offerered regular "Gucci" parts.
That, combined with that danged Get Machine has reopened a want that I thought had long scabbed over.
Sure there are flaws, but the Fewture robots designed by Robo-Shi are imposing pieces of art.
And speaking of art, did this one come with artwork as well? Obviously it would be unsigned due to the untimely passing of Robo-shi.
