This review is from: Halo 4 9-inch Series 2 Didact Deluxe Action Figure (Toy)
First off this is a great take in plastic of the Forerunner Commander from Halo 4. Sculpting is spot on - Mcfarlane put a lot of effort into getting the detail. The paint application is also to a high standard and the armour is outstanding.The alternate head is pretty hard to switch (again great detail)as neck joint is tight - but this is not a problem. The shoulder joints are also very tight and hold well.The real let down are the weak loose joints in the knees and elbows which make it difficult to hold any sort of pose. If this was a cheap piece, then ok, but at over £25 with p&p it's not,and does not represent 'value for money'.
That said it's great looking on your shelf or desktop if you're a Halo affectionado and even if you're not, it's still very impressive. Beware if you're buying it for kids though, cos whilst it looks tough, it's pretty fragile - in terms of overall quality, the H4 Elite Zealot or HR Brute Chieftain beat this hands down.
