    You can see the right side of the figure as Dan pans up in the video, and there are two distinct ball joints at the top of the thighs, and the thigh tops are not even with each other as one would expect if they were connected. Those are definitely four separate legs.

    " September figure Mantenna® is one of the last remaining original 1985 Horde members, and this 100% new sculpt features all four fully articulated legs. He comes with his Horde crossbow and snap-on eyes to recreate the vintage figure’s “eye popping” action feature."

    That's directly from Matty's website. I still can't believe he's a regular monthly figure. That's just awesome. Ram Man definitely has some competition this year!

    Scott mentioned in the walkthrough with Pixel Dan that you'd probably have to remove the mouthpiece on the finished figure in order to swap out the eyestalks/eyeballs. What would you say to having a pair of Filmation lips sculpted and put into a future weapons pack for more display options?

    I mean, it's weird. A pair of lips in a weapons pack. But I'd go for it.

    Weird? Perhaps. But an inspired idea, nonetheless. Take a design necessity and turn it into a useful feature. I like it!

    You will wind up typing many things in this forum and then say the same thing. Get used to it.

    I know it gets said every month about every figure... but he really might be the best figure in the line. Keen to see how the leg articulation works.

    That could end up being one of the very best figures in the line.

    Looking a little closer he looks to have great ankle pivots, and I am so glad they kept him as thin as he is and didn't go for an armour like piece over a standard buck.

    They changed the blue from the prototype into the vintage toy blue... I like it.

    I think he may end up being the Figure Of The Year winner. Certainly in my top 3. Absolutely amazing looking.
