product will come with a short story about Anubis
Posted by Nathan Simmons on Nov 22nd 2016
This is a great figure in robot mode. However, in trying to transform it into jet, the wings and feet don't tab in well to the body. Additionally, my figure already had stress marks on the tabs that connect the wings to the body, so I won't be transforming it much, in fear of the tabs breaking off. I was happy that all the weapons stored in his back correctly. This will be my Death's Head for years to come!

Ascetically Anubis is fantastic! I love the way he looks in both bot mode & his alt mode. He has a good deal of extra weapons with the chainsaw being my personal favorite. The problems I have that keep him at an average instead of a stellar score are things like, his weapons have zero alt mode storage so they just sit to the side in a pile. He has a gold shield that does nothing but stay on his back or "hide" his head in alt mode. Considering his transformation is simple (I'm fine with that) Anubis should tab together more secure in alt mode bot they don't, and this means many different spots just keep untabing while you are trying to tab other points together. If you finally get it all together the slightest movement could untab bits again which sucks if you like to whoosh around your spaceships. Lastly and the biggest frustration with him is that in bot mode his shoulders only lightly sit in place with a tiny nub that is supposed to keep them in place but it doesn't really work. The shoulders will stay in place but if you move the arms be prepared to adjust the shoulders. Overall though I really like him I just wish he tabbed together better in places. Hopefully MMC will get this sorted out & make adjustments to the upcoming Cyclonus that this mold was clearly intended for. Unless a superior version is released or fixes for him come out I would recommend you pass on him unless you plan to display him only. For display purposes or posing he works out fine and just needs a little patience. I still think he's great and plan to keep him but I have a hard time recommending Anubis
