The figure is brilliantly detailed and the cloth pieces (which normally look mediocre to awful on 1/12 scale figures) are fantastic.
One of the few problems with the figure is the lack of ankle articulation, which does make it difficult to get into some poses, and is difficult to look past in this day and age where most every company includes ankle pivots on their figures. You can still get him into most poses without too much hassle however and the stands help with that.
As for the price, I was happy to pay it for such a wonderful figure but I can see it being prohibitive. It would be nice if it included an alternate unmasked head (though you can pull the hood back) but all in all you most certainly won't feel ripped off if you understand what you're buying.
