Good choice but don't get FR, besides the obvious physical deformities the casting faults were numerous indeed, I ordered 4 more last year (5 years later) and got exactly the same product, faults and all. Didn' t have the heart to finish them off, I really should bin them...... :evil:

Yes, same figure different paint. The cast has little mounds of white metal all over, have to be surgically removed, from a dodgy mold which doesn't align properly.
