This figure represents a slightly higher level of action figure, than say Star Wars or GI Joe. There's a stronger attention to detail and paint application and, of course, a larger size. These Mass Effect 2 figures are very competitive with other DC Direct figures or other 6" action/collectible figures. Granted articulation could be slightly better, as long as they can hold an "at-the-ready" shooting pose, they're fine.
Grunt appears in his silver colored armor, which is somewhat misleading since the pic shows his white armor. Personally this is not a deal-breaker. I do wish he might have had some additional accessories, such as an alternate masked helmet (like Shepard) or an extra firearm. As it stands, he does feel just about right given the price point.
Overall, if you are a Mass Effect 2 fan, I highly recommend all of the figures from this Series 1. As it is, DC Direct and Bioware are supposedly in some type of dispute and will not be releasing Series 2. With that in mind, this will be a one-off kind of collection, but well worth it.
