Bandai Digimon Xros Wars Action Figure: Mailbirdramon

Following Greymon, we'll be taking a tllok at Mailbirdramon. Now, right out of the package, this figure does require a bit of assembly, as the head and tail feathers are detached in the box. The figure does not come with any accesories, but you do get the MarineAngemon Digimemory.

Now, taking a closer look at the figure, it looks impressive with the long, broad wings, and the decent amount of visual variety. most of the figure is sleek and smooth, but a few places, like the head and wingtips, have some really harsh angles going on. Unfortunately, the figure doesn't function, at least on it's own, as well as it looks.

The figure has some joints, but because of the massive wings and general top-heaviness, getting it to hold a pose can be a bit of a chore. Starting with the head, you have two joints in the neck that let it bend, the mouth has a hinge that lets it open, and the neck can rotate a bit in its connector port. You also have ball joints in the hips, and hinges in the knees.

So on it's own, the figure is rather lacking in the posability department, but thankfully, if you have the Greymon figure, the two can Digixros into the mighty MetalGreymon.

Performing the merger is essentially disassembling Mailbirdramon and slapping his parts onto Greymon. Starting with Greymon, turns his legs back, and stand him up so that he's standing relatively straight; bring the arms down and pull out on the shoulders, which should extend outwards slightly; next bring the head down as far as it will go, and finally bring the tail up about 90 degrees on the inner-most joint. Now, to disassemble Mailbirdramon, start by taking the figures head and pulling it out, slide the back plate and upper leg plates off, and finally remove the chest plate and tail feather. Start by taking the chst plate, and snap it onto the extended shoulder pegs of Greymon, making sure the inward bending curve faces Greymons neck. The leg plates fit onto the slots on Greymons upper legs, the neck plugs into the thing on the tip of Greymons tail. Close up the tail feather and attach it to Greymons left hand via the clip on the underside. Take the large wing pack and fold up MailBirdramons legs onto what was its underbelly, and attach it to the clip on Greymons back, orienting it so that the gun barel point up. finally take Mailbirdramons back plate and side it over Greymons horn to form MetalGreymons face.

The combined form of Metalgreymon is quite the impressive thing to behold, and it retains most of Greymos articulation, although the figure is now a bit top-heavy. You have the same arm and leg posability, Mailbirdarmons head adds a few more joints to the tail, and Mailbirdramons legs can flip over MetalGreymons shoulders to act as weapons.

Overall, the toy is on the "Not too good" end of the decent scale, but that's only if the figure is alone, add in Greymon and you have a ton of interesting stuff the figures can do. Yes, Mailbridramon is essentially a giant accesory, but well worth it.
