As for me, I'm only interested in the action figure! hahaha...Well, among the range of action figure released following the movie "Star Trek Insurrection", Lt Commander Worf is the only one that stands out from thre rest. Reason is the likeness of this figure as compared to the real person in the movie. That's enough reason to buy it. But....upon close inspection, hum....
Nice facial expression. Detailed for this price range of toys. Plus the uniform is fabric.

Not much room for articulation. Kinda of stiff.
That's the max the arms and legs can bend. You can't even twist the fore arm. The head's good for rotation but not tilting. The ankles are stiff, maybe because of the boots, I guess. Didn't take out the boots as I'm worried I might accidentally break them, feet and all.
As you can see from this picture, the skin tone and contour is great but the choice of material is pretty hard. Looks and feel like phenolics. Guess the material can last till my great-grand children and it'll still be as hard!
Verdict?? Good to keep as a reminder of the 'good o days of action figure'. Stiff and not so articulated. Well, that's what we call evolution, right??
