New Fox Sports 10" Robots for 2012

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

the only thing that through me, that line just below the shoulder ball that looks like the bicep should swivel... according to the official articulation sheet they posted on their facebook page, there's no swivel there, just the one above the elbow, and the one above the elbow does the trick, so i'm not complaining... but man it looks like there should be a swivel there!

i'm intrigued to see if these catch on better than 1.0, and i see in these new one some fantastic potential for custom work. the base body is just so solid, i can see the frame supporting a lot of mods. i haven't tried anything yet on the two i have, but if i can snag a third, the goal is to tamper with him and see what i can easily do... and maybe contemplate what i can't easily do.

That not-joint bugged me, too. I spent 10 minutes trying to get that to move.

I ran into BBB Friday and found this guy. He is very impressive in person! It was right up front in the first shelf/display area, there was still a ton of Christmas stuff left over. All the sports merch was still on 50% clearance!

if you don't like his paint job, i'm sure he'd take a new one. [smile] but yeah, i've been very impressed by my two thusfar.

The only thing I don't like about the paint is the red legs. The Pats never wear red pants, I would have much rather had white (or silver/grey) pants and black feet.

What teams do you have?

i have the michigan wolverines and the kansas city chiefs. i'm only a wolverines fan, the chiefs was easy of access, like your patriots, but i desperately wanted a second bot and they were half-off, so convincing the wife was easy. i share them w/ the kids and can attest, these are toy-quality, not just nerd hummels. can't say that for many of the "toys" nominated for poppies this year.

That should be category all on its own, or at least a criterion for ToY, to be able to chuck it at a wall as hard as you can and not have the thing shatter into a million pieces.
