The packaging is a transparent PVC printed box that holds the figure and accessories.
To me, the overall paint job and sculpting of this 8 inch figure is considered very good.
Great weathering on the outfit and bullet belts :)
I believe the joint at the back of the jacket is to allow more action poses.
The figure has tight joints and fair amount of body articulation.
The hat is not removable and the right above are accessories come with the figure (instruction sheet and 2 sets of metal chains are not shown here).
These are the two extra heads with different facial expression you can swap.
Grave uses his coffin for special attacks and to strike nearby enemies.
Some parts of the coffin is made of metal and it has a lot of great details.
According to the instruction sheet, you have to place the tiny brain in the cranial cavity to complete the skull.
You may hide the handguns "Cerberus" in the round compartment of the coffin (Here is my Gungrave Overdose collection).

As I am not getting the 1/6 scale 1989 Batmobile by Hot Toys, I scored the 1/18 scale Batmobile by Mattel Hot Wheels.
Each rim has a Batman symbol cap and the exhaust side pipes look realistic.
The wing-shaped tail fins, rear lights and jet booster are well produced and screen accurate.
As majority of the body parts are made of metal, the vehicle is heavy.
You can slide to open and close the canopy..Cool!!
Look at the interior of the two-seat cockpit..Amazing!!
The front wheels actually turn when you turn the steering wheel. The vehicle has two machine guns hidden at the side of the fender.
I don't know the purpose of the retractable engine and it's one of the vehicle's features.
This is definitely a great display piece and I highly recommend to all Batman fans. You may read my review on Hot Toys 1989 Batman here and Joker here.

Simple box packaging with movie logo printed in front. Remove the box lid, there is a plastic window that allows you to see the contents within.
This is the Ray-Ban sunglasses Agent K wears when he needs to erase the memories of the witnesses.
Nothing great about the belt as it's made of soft plastic...
I personally do not like the fabric of the suit as it gets crumpled easily.
Obviously, the Ankle Gun does not fit the hand.
The figure has tight joints and thus, no display stand is necessary.
The head sculpt likeness to Tommy Lee Jones is not good but the texture of the facial skin is well executed.
This is the Standard Issue 2012 Gun as described and I love all the chrome weapons.
The hair lines are well sculpted with right amount of colour tones but the colour application to the skin is bad.
Overall, I am still happy with the figure as it is reasonably priced (Next review is Agent J).
