going to call him Bunny. He is Bunny, that's just how it
is. And I couldn't have gotten a Wild Tiger without his
heroic partner, right? That's what I told myself.
Real men wear pink, you know. Or...
something. Admittedly I didn't care much for
Bun--Barnaby the first few episodes, but the kid grows on
you. As does the suit. Once again it's an

thing... I mean, I guess it's not terrible, but it's a
little like a backhanded compliment. (And I'll bet it
hurts like friendship.)
Once again getting the
figure out of the box is a joy. One piece of tape,
slide out the plastic, pull it apart, DONE. That will
never cease to amaze me.
Isn't he fabulous? Or at least
like Wild Tiger. Of course he's got a similar
style to his partner, but still remains unique.
And the little bitty bunny emblem makes me happy,
too. It doesn't take much, really.
Detailing is once
again really damn good, though I do notice that Bunny
has a few rough patches along various edges.
Honestly nothing that stands out or irritates me, but
I'm sure the internet as a whole is in bitch mode about
And speaking of mode changes,
here's his Good Luck Mode leg! Which amuses me
to no end. It's actually surprisingly
flexible, but it will always look wrong and
hilarious. Still, he could kick someone's ass
100 times harder than the average person, so may as
well flaunt it.
POSE TIME! The stand is
brilliant watermelon pink this time around, but
the same design as Tiger's. Somehow this
stand gave me less fits, but I imagine that was
because I barely had to move it to get it where
I wanted it.
Surprisingly, the leg was
easier to attach than Wild Tiger's
arm. That may be a freak thing in my
particular figure, but it was a breeze to
switch legs. ...Though I did
accidentally pop his torso loose.
We'll pretend that didn't happen,
though. It's alright, Bunny, you don't
need a connected spine.
ASS SHOT. Boy
knows how to work it, we all know it's
true. Also a pretty decent shot of
his rockets... thrusters... FLYING
Overall, I'm once again impressed.
Nice smooth movement without joints
being too tight or too loose, quality
plastic, and he got a great weight to
him. Well worth the money, maybe
not worth the fan frenzy... but I'm
betting there will be another release in

again! In a spontaneous
jump-and-hug. The scary thing
is how easy this was both to pose
and to balance.
But surely this
is a much calmer moment. And
look at those kick-ass shoes.
