I felt the same until AFM posted a link to a video that showed of the pose ability of the body and I was in. from all the pictures I have seen this one is going to be a favorite of mine. just waiting for mines to get here.I've stayed away from Sideshow because of problems with their bodies. I've seen reviews on this one and it seems to be a lot better. It's the first Sideshow figure I would consider buying.
