When I jumped into this review, I had no experience with Assemble Borgs. Something about the design tickled my 80's fancy even though these are modern toys. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, I don't know if it reminded me of Microman figures, Dunbine or any of the other toys I would come to love as a kid. When I learned that this line was designed for creativity and expansion, I was hooked. Upon receiving the toy, it was a another matter entirely. While the figure allows some creativity, I could not take full advantage of what is offered without having the other figures in the line. Some great stuff can be done. Mixing and matching galore, designing your own crazy scientist type figures, creating vehicle or even better, big robots. </p> <p><b>Ghost Gunner appears courtesy of <a href="http://www.toyfreakz.com/shop/index.php?_a=category&amp;search[keywords]=ghost%20gunner">Toyfreakz.com</a></b></p> <p>Ghost Gunner comes in a neat Revoltech box that displays the contents. This box appears to be the same box used for the other two figures because the set number is a sticker.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605403-3/IMG_5028.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5028" /></p> <p>The figure comes in your standard plastic clamshell tray.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605404-3/IMG_5027.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5027" /></p> <p>Once you take the figure out of the box you will need to assemble his shoulder mounted weapons and attach them to his shoulders. When new, the pieces will be near impossible to put together, especially when your humble narrator's thumb is fractured. Upon doing this, you will notice you have destroyed most of his chances of standing on his own. Say hello to the photos that ate away pieces of my life.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605405-3/IMG_5007.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5007" /><img src="/gallery2/d/605406-3/IMG_5008.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5008" /></p> <p>The figure has a decent sculpt although it has no discernible facial features.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605407-3/IMG_5009.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5009" /></p> <p>One of the things that really got my attention was this incredible green metallic paint used on the figure. It's really nicely done. I think I almost captured what it looks like in person.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605408-3/IMG_5010.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5010" /><img src="/gallery2/d/605410-3/IMG_5012.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5012" /></p> <p>The shoulder mounted weapons can be swung up when you are ready for battle.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605411-3/IMG_5013.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5013" /></p> <p>Articulation? How much do you want? It's a friggin' Revoltech. It has tons.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605412-3/IMG_5014.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5014" /></p> <p>Kneeling poses are cake. He doesn't even break a sweat.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605413-3/IMG_5015.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5015" /></p> <p>The gun section of his weapons can separate from his shoulders for hand use.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605414-3/IMG_5016.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5016" /><img src="/gallery2/d/605415-3/IMG_5017.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5017" /></p> <p>His shoulder pieces can be removed and placed on his backpack like so to make some high-tech wings. This is just me having fun. You can experiment with it as you like. It's up to your imagination.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605416-3/IMG_5018.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5018" /><img src="/gallery2/d/605417-3/IMG_5019.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5019" /></p> <p>Now I'm really having fun.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605418-3/IMG_5020.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5020" /></p> <p>This is my impression of Rose McGowan in Grindhouse. Except not as sexy.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605419-3/IMG_5021.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5021" /><img src="/gallery2/d/605420-3/IMG_5022.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5022" /></p> <p>I like this set-up although it requires a stand. The figure comes with an included stand but for review purposes I used my own. The included stand is your typical Revoltech stand in clear with orange print.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605421-3/IMG_5023.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5023" /><img src="/gallery2/d/605431-3/IMG_5026.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5026" /></p> <p>There is a little foot effect piece which is making it's way into a lot of Revoltech toys as of late. As a matter of fact, other toy lines too. To me it just looks like he splashed into a puddle of goo.<br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/605422-3/IMG_5024.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=feb51674fd70d5e2a4224a199028ddfc" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_5024" /></p> <p>I personally find many Revoltech figures fidgety and frustrating at times and this was no exception. I have no time for precisely adjusting little tiny joints. I'm old. However the idea of being able to just go nuts on these with a couple of other Assemble Borg figures, or other Revoltechs for that matter, really draws me in. What I have just shown you in this review is but a small immeasurable fraction of what can be done when using multiple sets.</p> <object width="640" height="360"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/0EZLkhAWDNY?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/0EZLkhAWDNY?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="360" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object><p> <br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.
