To me, it seems like it comes off because you need to take it off to put the Armor up armor on him. That's what I'm thinking cause the armor up armor is about just the same bulkiness as the armor on him.It's defiantly removable which makes no sense since you all ready have and Armor Up FO ST that does not have this "feature". If armor comes off it should be all of it. Makes no sense but it's Hasbro, they have become notorious for some head scratching outcomes in the last 4+ years.
Have to agree with you there, i feel the same way. Nonetheless i'll be making an exception to obtain the new Tie Pilot armor-up, it's too unique to miss.I. Hate. Armor ups.
Once again, I have no desire to support Hasbro and their attempt to double the price of a basic 5 POA figure just for an extra hunk of plastic and a over sized waste of packaging.
I just checked that. $12.99 AND Free shipping. You don't see this anywhere for the new waves. Plus it's in stock. I guess a lot of people hate the armor-ups. Makes sense to wait for the single-carded one, anyway.This is up on Amazon along with the new Tie Pilot Armor up: Amazon.com: Star Wars 6591 Lead Hero Battler White Action Figure: Toys & Games
An Armor Up Rey figure would be awesome (for those who buy them, I don't see the appeal so much).
But I wish the Armor Up figures would be of characters or variations we can't get anywhere else.
Like Resistance Poe. Save for buying the WM X-Wing, you can't get Poe in that attire.
Kylo? Unhooded, nowhere else. Chewbacca? Armor Up exclusive. Hasn't gotten a TFA in the line anywhere else.
Phasma? Just like the single card. FN-2187? Single card also has it.
The differences and variations are what make me want to go out and buy the Armor Ups, not the accessories.
Received this guy from Amazon yesterday. Just wish it came with a regular helmet instead of this crazy one...
Actually the second pict from the top is kinda cool. It would make a good jakku scene as he leaves the burning tie fighter and takes off his uniform. I have one. I guess I'm gonna open it. I'm not complaining about the costs on these anymore considering my kid's skylanders figurine cost way more and do nothing.
http://youtu.be/arvnhNPUrl0I actually like the look of Finn "War Machine" FN-2187. the helmet does remind me of a space trooper helmet and the fact this might be the best armor up gear so far since we have 2 different looks for this figure (with the under armor and armor up on as well as a Finn that can look like he is removing his Stormtrooper gear, and the fact that the helmet is removable. I'm curious to see if it will fit on the standard FO Stormtrooper).
of course (not sure if I'm going to be the first or not to poke a joke at him) we are assuming that the canon on top of his armor is just that a weapon of some sort (ala the tags of War Machine Finn) but since FN-2187 is a janitor in the glorious First Order...perhaps his armor up title should be "Super Janitor".... the armor could be nothing more then a high power cleaning system. the canon can be a water cleansing canon and the helmet is to filter out all the nasty smells left by the FO Troopers after they use the head.... lol
again this is all in pure fun and not meant to be taken seriously
as I don't have FN-2187 "Bloody handprint on helmet" in hand I can't be sure but I think I will say yes as it's Hasbro's MO to give us multiple versions of characters with slight differences to make us buy them multiple times. recent nods can go to 4 different versions of Kylo Ren, 2 similar FO Stormtroopers and multiple versions of Poe.I hadn't realized the armor comes off this version of FN. That means this is a different figure than the single pack, yes?
