I just need to yell about how great this Hardshell toy is.
Not only is it very pretty and (almost entirely) show accurate, the transformation is fantastic and simple, and the articulation is BEAUTIFUL for such a small toy. My god- his arms, legs, wings, AND feet all have ball joints! The joints on the wings and feet are particularly nice- I can bend them any way I want so he can be posed nicely.
My only gripe is that his head has no articulation at all. I can see where it could easily have been applied to so that’s a little disappointing. But since everything else moves so nicely I’m not too upset about it.

All he needs now is for me to paint his scars on and (keep trying to) snap off his left mandible and he’ll be perfect~
