    My card finally got charged.

    Also...his fur is part of the harness? That's kinda lame. I guess it was cheaper for them to do it that way so they can reuse old arm molds, but it'll limit articulation.

    One bright side to that is people can army build if they want. From the pictures it doesn't look bad or like it hinders poseability though.

    I meant it'll limit how high he can raise his arm.

    In a video review I seen, he looks too big compared to Lion-O.

    This may sound like a dumb question, but I will ask anyway. How does Jackalman look next to Bandai's Classic Mumm-Ra? Does he tower over Mumm-Ra? If so, then my Mumm-Ra will be done away with like my 6" Lion-O with the angry face.

    Yes he is bigger than Mumm-Ra.

    That's disheartening, but Jackalman does look really nice. I wonder how far down he had to bend Jackalman's legs so he could cower to the less imposing Mumm-Ra at the end of that video. I don't know what makes him think that Jackalman is sold out on Matty, because he is still available as of this writing.

    That sounds about right. My Jackalman is en route and I also was charged for Pumyra [wich comes with Mumm-Ra, I guess?]

    According to so sources all the Jackalman figures have been assembled incorrectly. The top of the lower legs are on the wrong legs.

    Got my Jackalman today, he's pretty sweet. And, it happened again, but I'm alright with it this time. I had to change my card because the card with the sub was stolen. I updated it to a new card, A new card, not the one that replaced the stolen one. I looked today, and the charges for Jackalman are on the card that replaced the old car, not the one listed on file. Is this because it's tied to that account? Does it go through the back on the old number and they apply to the new? The bank has no idea how they would get the new card if I did not provide.
    It's very interesting. Like I said, this time I am fine because I certainly do not want anything to stop me from getting Pumyra and Mumm-ra or Panthro!! I guess here's hoping all remains well foe the final two shipments.

    I'm not too sure about that. The seam lines line up perfectly, and the slant in the knee joint is going the right way.

    They are reversed. The muscle on the outside should be on the inside like the prototype.

    Well it could be fixable. How hard is it to push the pegs through the knees? Anyone tried before?
  20. Got mine the other day. I think he looks great. Really need Slithe, Monkian, and Vulture Man to make this group feel somewhat complete.
