But, it really annoys me that they are just using straight cuts for the bicep articulation on this. It's not even trying to fit it in to sculpt or disguise it at all. Posing the arm any way besides lined up and straight is going to make that joint stick out a lot and be really ugly.
If they couldn't fit the joint into the sculpt, then they should have worked that swivel articulation in at the top of the elbow joint. Like other import figures have done.
I'm with you on the bicep cut, jonmichael. It's not Tamashii's finest work, which sticks out since all their recent figures and the rest of this figure have been great.
The new faces will definitely be interchangeable with Armour Trunks' heads. Especially since his base form head came with one face, but you could still take it out. I also predict that they'll use the new wide neck peg.
You know, I never noticed Trunks' socks in the game lol.

The legs are supposed to be wrapped in martial arts bindings. I kinda wish they had done it a little less uniform, so it looked more like wrap and not just striped socks, lol. You can see it better in game stuff.
But, overall, I really like this figure! I wish this had been the Super design for future Trunks, too.
The hair could've/should've been spikier but none the less he looks really good!
Yeah that would've been nice, but I guess we should consider ourselves lucky to be getting a second head at all considering they refuse to ever give Vegeta one. Psyched for this figure overall though. Not something I ever expected to see, and it should take the sting out of the fact that the original Trunks heads aren't compatible with the new armored body.
