#502 of Year 2 Robocop Ultra Police Headhunter

It's another day, it's another Robocop figure.  Yay for Kenner (RIP) week.

The design of the card is pretty similar to what has gone on before.  Points for the individualised card art on the front as usual, and for the open layout in the bubble.  The back of the card seems a lot less cluttered and I'm going to guess that this is a Series 1 figure with only 6 characters and 3 vehicles.  Again, negative points for the picture of Robocop for the action feature.

Besides the two roll of caps, the figure comes with a huge rifle and a weird bent knife thing, both molded from the same shade of gold plastic and has an absolute ton of details sculpted onto it.  The figure has the usual 5 points of articulation.  The hip joints seems a bit odd - it's as if it's attached wrongly.  The sculpt has quote a bit of detail on the torso and face.

There's the usual hole on the hip to plug in the weird accessory, which is a nice thing about the line.  The downside is that the rifle can't attach to his hips not only because of the size, but also because it lacks the peg.  The paintwork on my figure seems chip in a lot of places, including the flesh side of the V-neck and on the edges of the sash-belt.

Despite the flaws, this figure fits right in with other figures that I've opened so far.  I didn't try out the caps firing mechanism that's built into the figure as his backpack, but that's gotta be another source of fun.
