Right from the start when I first saw the promo shots and sketches I knew I had to get one! dam it was the right choice. Companies should take note, 1000Toys TOA Heavy Industries have cracked the articulation game, absolutely smashed it! Hottoys,ThreeA,Revoltech and Figma should learn a few tricks. Obviously the design worked well with the articulation.The Synthetic Human is a perfect 10 inch tall from the Biomega manga features a humanoid highly articulated figure.
*****UPDATED****** Version of the YouTube Video Unboxing/Review
OLD version of the YouTube Video Unboxing / Review ( sorry about the music level I am still new to video editing etc)
Pretty simple packaging but fully protecting the figure, the futuristic minimalistic look.
The shoulder joints move inwards and outwards with nice rotation too. This figure does not have many limitations when it comes to articulation. Three sections in the midsection which can bend and turn. The neck is also flexible so most poses are easily done.
Nice stiff joints, but only time will tell if they get too loose, but having said that the quality of the plastic used looks good so fingers crossed the joints will last.
One of the party tricks has to be the skull head when you take the mask off, but wait for it………. even has movable eyes, nice little touch.
I still wonder why they didn’t put a little articulation in the hands of the SYNTHETIC HUMAN. Maybe it would of been too fragile? who knows? I personally very happy with the figure and hope they continue to bring out more variants and also another run of this version (just waiting on confirmation on a third run)
The figure was priced at $120 and first pre-order was 4th March but sold out pretty quick. News leaked of a second run came to light and 1000Toys checked with their factory if they could get a second run! and guess what they pulled it off. Many people are waiting on news of third run so fingers crossed they will come and make the fans happy. I really do hope they keep making the line, If the SDCC version is to go buy then its another winner!
That clear mask is sick!
