I have two Y-MSF figures: the closed-mouth Megalon and the red-eyed Kumonga. They have several ups and downs.
The sculpts on these figures are excellent, rivaling if not surpassing my Bandais. I'm amazed at the level of detail and texture they have.
On the other hand, the vinyl itself is certainly inferior to Bandai's. Megalon, in particular, feels rather hollow and cheap.
The paint jobs are good, if not great. They're pretty accurate, at least, but there are some flaws. Kumonga has this slightly sandy/dirty look to him, and I can't tell whether that's intentional or just paint wear. Megalon has a couple spots of discoloration on his grey skin.
Articulation is also good. Kumonga has a joint on each leg; Megalon has joints in his shoulders, legs, tail and neck. His head doesn't turn that well, and his tail tends to bump into his wings, but it's not that big of a deal.
Overall, these two figures are pretty good; they're a little sub-par to Bandai figures, but not much. That said, the prices I've seen for Y-MSF figures like these two are ridiculous. I was fortunate to get mine in a combo sale, and ended up paying about $20-$25 for each, which still seems like a bit much (keep in mind I don't like having to pay $20+ for regular Bandais). I'm certainly interested in their '56 Rodan, and I've been curious about their Mosu-Goji, but I wouldn't pay more than $30 for them, IF that much.
