being the owner of the kits that garrick has harassed, I would also say that
they have quite a few other weaknesses, mostly on the fact that their hands
get loose quite easily, grip-wise. another problem is that their
proportions, while heroic, tend to be iffy when it comes to real-life poses.
Another problem: the plastic molding is sometimes suspicious, in the sense
that they can be unexpectedly fragile in the damnedest places.
