EDIT: I'm not interested in selling, so please, no more PM's If I decide to sell, I'll add him to my haves list! Thank you all though for your offers though!
Where do I start? The bug-eyed vacant stare? The ill-fitting backpack? The unarticulated ankles?
This figure is a major disappointment
While the character name and bio leave something to be desired, the look of this guy has always been awesome. I mean awesome in a stereotypical American-ninja sort of way. But Hasbro really really dropped the ball on a much clamored-for figure.
Paint apps - The paint job is terrible - the eyes are worse than the first Ace's, the hair isn't painted all the way down to the bottom, and the white head-band is semi-translucent. If you pose him kicking, or even jut looking at him straight on, you can see the glaring lack of paint on the inside of his crotch as well. Its an easy fix with flat black, but still.
Accessories - The nunchuks and sword are actually an improvement on the original - they have paint on the handles, and are actually large enough to be held. Too back QK can only hold one end of the nunchucks! C'mon H, at least give us a swappable hand if you're gonna do this molded-pose crap. The backpack fits at and odd angle, making it stick out, and up. I have to turn it upside down for it to look right, and then it looks goofy from the back.
Articulation - most of the time this is standard for Joes... but Hasbro took out one of the gripping hands, and removed ankle articulation. So now, the martial arts experts poses are extremely limited. He can't hold the nunchucks with both hands, and he can't kick properly because he can't extend his foot - this also limits balance - and by extension (or lack there of, rather) posability - on the stand as well.
I give him a 3 out of 10 stars. 2 for just being released, one for being a new mold.

he looks fine to me, sometimes i think people put to much thought into whats wrong with a figure. they build thier hopes up so much that hasbro could not come close to them.

I am one of those who tends to not judge figures too harshly.
For example, that crotch paint stuff does not sound like it would bother me too much.
But no ankle articulation on the martial arts specialist? That does seem.... seems kinda dumb.

I've seen Dusty from the new DVDs, where's the pics of Quick Kick and what appears to be the worst repaint of Serpentor yet, and Snake Eyes?
Start posting pics people! I live in a crappy state that doesn't get these things for months after everyone else!
I see what you did there.

I've heard about his limited articulation.
I like him actually the paint applications on the figures in the dvd pack is usually random I had yo look at 12 of them before I found a good lady Jaye.
But then again the one I found had great paint job.
I also heard the feet were superbly sculpted and that if they had added articulation it would have ruined the paint job.
But I would agree that they should have added a swap able hand to replace the karate one.
