Now to the review. The figure arrived earlier than I expect, it took about 2 weeks. It came in a white box like most mail-in offer exclusive. Inside the box, you will find Camouflage MC himself and his weapons: the Assault Rifle and the Sniper Rifle. The figure is just a standard 8" Active MC made in clear plastic with 18 points of articulation. Both weapons are made in clear plastic as well. As I start posing the figure, I notice one major problem... there are many loose joints, so MC can barely stand by himself. This isn't an issue with the normal 8" active MC, so maybe I am just bad luck or something is really wrong with this clear plastic. You can see from my pictures that most of his pose involve ankle binding on the right leg which wasn't intended, but it's so loose that I can't do much about it.
I like the idea of camouflage MC very much because in the game, this is one of MC ability if you got the right item, however the loose joints problem is very annoying. If there were nothing wrong with the joints, I will definitely recommend this figure to everyone. If you are a sucker for exclusive figures, mail your $5 now since supply is limited.
