I recieved 2 of the kits a couple of weeks ago and honestly wasn't expecting much from a Meng figure set.The way they have molded them is different from most companies.The parts,at least for the adults are interlocking and make a great fit with very little room for error.No shaving or filling between legs and torso for example.Exellent figures for the cost.Here's a couple of bad pics.
