Above you see the parts, out of the box which once again is Seil's sturdy black box with all parts layered between foam for protection. The kit is also supplied with a color guide in addition to the box sleeve.

    Really like this one as well. Hoping to find one to replace the similar figure on Time Machines old Leonidas dio, always felt the corpse was let down by the 'live' figure.
    thanks for a well illustrated review.
    Regards
