Have you ever heard of these:

and do you have one?
If so, is it worth the money?
I'm thinking of getting one.

I've seen those, but I don't have one (the store that had them was charging 30 bucks a pop).

They look like nice kits though.

I bought one on ebay for 9 bucks, Was kinda stupid, mine was orange, but I want the ones with the steel balls that shoot from the gun-arms.

It'd be better if they were more of a staple in the American market, but they aren't.

Each one comes with tons of hands and stuff. And the directions are pretty simple to understand. These models are more of a toy than anything McFarlane has ever produced as a toy.

These are probably the best Mega Man toys/models around.

Well, most Japanese model kits are more toys than models... Take the Gundam kits ;). Now those are fun. Specially the SD ones. Man I must have went through 2 of those a week >_>.

That's the thing of Japanese toys vs. American toys... most (not all, mind you) Japanese toys look awesome AND have great articulation... there are hardly any American toys that do both. Also, Japanese toys come with cool little extras such as interchangable hands, heads, and PELLET CANDY!

Can anyone tell why everyone hates Todd McFarlane so much?

I think it's because most of his 'action figures' really don't move much and when they do, they don't look right in other poses than the one they come packaged in.

Oh..But I heard people saying he's a jerk. How come?

He's not a very nice guy. He's had lawsuits filed, and other ****. I don't hate him, but his toys kind of get me mad. But don't get me wrong, I own tons of them. Just wish you could play with them.
