Squigsquasher wrote:The best Original Series figure is the XS-01R, the Soul of Chogokin SPEC Renewal version (the original had structural issues and slightly less articulation). It has fully removable armour, die-cast construction, good paint, more accessories than you can shake a Progressive Knife at, a working Entry Plug system, superb posability and exceptional accuracy (it's pretty much a perfect representation, save for the silver bits which should be slightly more blue- but then practically every figure gets that wrong, and I think even the series miscoloured it from time to time). It is expensive though so prepare your wallet.
If you like building models then there's the LMHG Unit 01 TV version model kit, which despite being very old (it's from 1996 I think) is still a superb kit. It will need a lot of work to make it look really good though- you could just snap it together, panel line it and use the stickers for detail, but for it to look its best you will need to paint it. Also, it's a model, not a toy- the arms are coated in a rubber sleeve, and whilst they're surprisingly poseable they are still limited, and overuse could damage the rubber. Also, painting a poseable plamo is quite different from painting, say, a Tamiya kit or a Warhammer miniature. TMB would be your best source for info on building kits.

can anyone tell me the difference between the xs-01r and xs-01? i realize there is some kind of neck fix but the price difference is literally $80-$100. I want the best but i am also on a budget, and if the difference is very little like the xs-01r has more range of motion in the head and slightly tighter ankle joints then i would just get the xs-01 but if the fixes are major then i would consider the xs-01r, thanks for any help

First off, my model didn't come with any kind of manual or guide. I take it this is normal for the RAH line? (I understand how the model works should be fairly self explanatory but I'd imagine you might very well damage the jaw if you didn't already know that you have to pull the jaw piece down to get the full range of motion.)
Also, this little piece of protective plastic fell out my box and I have had trouble identifying where it belongs; anyone have an answer?
