So to make a long story short (although I doubt anyone cares), I finally received some goods that someone who goes to Japan often got for me, free of charge. I was just expecting a couple K-ON! things, but then I opened the box and found an Ed action figure. I started freaking out because it's so awesome. My first FMA merch minus a couple key chains and DVD's. Thought I'd share some pics.

Entire thing

Interchangeable heads. Had trouble getting a clear one.

Back of the box. Different poses he can do and such.

I'm so very tempted to take him out of the box and play with him, but I don't want to ruin him. Just so awesome looking!

He is gorgeous--but you definitely want to keep him in the box--there was a post from folks who have this Playarts figure and the Roy you should check out from last week. Aparently the heads fall off and the interchangable parts are a nice idea but don't work so well--at least not on these figures. I had been about to fork out 50.00 for Roy--I'll save my cash instead...

That's what we heard. -_-; My mom was excited about this Ed until she found out he so many problems.

The little playarts Ed that looks like this one but he's an older figure has it's share of problems too. Though the other direction, I can't always get his arms off to interchange them. ;D

I totally plan to leave him in. First off I can't keep track of anything to save my life, so I'd probably lose a piece or two, plus his awesomeness would somehow decline if I took him out.

its funny how people seem to be like, HUH-interchangeable-heads-why?, when other figures have different heads or faces. figmas have different faces--and the code geass lelouch one has a zero head you can use. Nendoroids also have diff faces, but the whole head is what you change.

anyways, i have this figure, and i like it--its pretty and looks cool on a shelf--which is what i want in a figure. i just ignore the hands and head falling off issues :P

How to avoid heads falling off: Don't take them out of the box, ha ha.

Super awesome! Looks so great! Wish I could get one... D:

I'd leave him in the box if I were you. Like others have said here, his head and hands fall off a lot and, according to a friend of mine who also has this Ed, you can't put him into his famous clapping pose. His arms just won't cooperate and you can't make his hands touch. bummer. :(
go on and pull that trigger.greedchan on November 10th, 2009 02:39 am (UTC)
Aah, reminds me of my EVA 01 figure. xD The head NEVER EVER stays on. Poor thing.

:3 He's pretty, though! I'd probably... end up taking him out of the box anyway. xD;

yay, exciting for you! My sempai goes to Japan, too, and last time I gave him $50 and he brought me back a whole pile of goodies!

Yeah I would keep him in the box, re: all the issues with this line of figures. He probably won't be the last Ed you get, either...I think I have at least half a dozen... ^_^

Looks amazing, but I hate how fragile these figures always are!
