Review - Marine Powerloader miniature figure for Alien vs Predator from Prodos Games

The operator is fully integrated to the Powerloader. The legs are generic futuristic legs, so they could be used for anything. You might be able to cut the torso of the operator from the cockpit to replace it with some other model. You just need to position the new arms to fit the hands on the Powerloader arms.

Although I don't have the model to check this, as the torso sits on a ball join, I assume you might be able to position the cockpit in multiple poses, although you'll probably need some additinal wires and rods to attach the cockpit to the legs if the gap between them gets too wide.

The Kickstarter edition from blue resin is more rigid and prone to breaking.

The flamer looks like it's easy to remove if you'd like your model without it, or if you'd like to change the weapon. You just have to cut the flamer from the bottom of the arm, and you might also cut the fuel tank, but I think you can even leave the tank in its place, it wouldn't look out of place.

I've seen a copy of this model with the flamer separate from the Power Loader arm. I'm not sure whether that was a variant version, or if the flamer just broke off.
