When this body was first announced, I had high hopes. The BL3.5 was one of my favourite bodies and TT's were starting to get on my nerves with their instability and fragility. The more info and pics that emerged, the more I liked it. Then I found they were doing gear to go with it. Throw in a Matt Damon head and things were really getting good. The icing on the cake was the price, £50 plus postage for an Enterbay figure with gear, where do I sign!? The moment the pre-order went up at OSB I had to get them.
Doubts did emerge when folk found that he was a rather tall body. As you know from the thread, there was a way to shorten it, more on that later though! Aside from the height, there was a little consternation when he didn't come with hands that could hold weapons, however, it was acknowledged that HT hands would fit.
I got the body and gear at the weekend. Smartypants me thought that I could do the ankle modification as featured in the video on the RM-4 thread. One ankle was a success, however, I then snapped the foot off trying to do the other leg! The only thing I could do was to order another body from OSB and it arrived this morning...
The first thing you notice once you take it out of the box is that he does have really long legs due to the extended ankles. It's possible that Enterbay did this so that Western figures would be taller than Asian figures. Take a look:
Then comes the HS, a really nice representation of Matt Damon:
The neck doesn't do much, something they should maybe address.
The shoulders are nice, they look well proportioned and swivel much like TT ones do:
The torso doesn't have much range of movement but it is nicely done:
The range of motion in the arms is impressive and is one area where this body scores over the TT:
(Excuse the camera shake!)
The hands are nicely sculpted and painted:
The range of motion is the same as the TT.
The legs are pretty standard in terms of posing and are no better or worse than others:
Here's a pose we hope Bourne doesn't do often:
By far the best part of this body are the ankles, ratcheted forward and backward pivot with 360 swivel and tightly ball jointed feet. The best ankles I've seen so far:
Overall this is a very sturdy, well articulated body and one of the best you can get for the price. If Enterbay release this again, I hope they leave off the ankle extensions.
Next up, I turn him into Bourne, this needs another thread!
See you there,
