A front view. A fantastic body type, very neutral, no extra long arms, dynamic legs, or groping hands (as Loggy aptly described Commander Riker's slightly suspicious hand gesture). The body is a retooled DS9 Sisko, despite appearances. I always thought it was a Sisko head on a Wes or Picard body, but no, technically it is unique, as all the DS9ness of the utility uniform has been removed.
(Disclaimer: Base is not included, it's a spare I left on during photography accidentally)
A back view. More neutralness going on around the back, great sculpting. The red is slightly off between the arms and the body, but not a deal breaker for me personally. Also, whether this affects you or not, the DS9 undershirt is still visible at the end of the cuffs, no doubt because they wanted to keep costs down after a retool of the body. No problem for me like the paint, but I know some people go nuts over something like that.
A close up of the head. Just like the DS9 Sisko, a great likeness in my opinion. The badge has faded a bit, but great all round beyond that.

A comparison between the original Sisko, right, with the TNG Sisko, left.
All the TNG DS9ers.
To the conclusion!
Would I recommend him?
Certainly! Just to get a Sisko from the Wolf 359 battle and have him on your shelf, not to mention completing your TNG DS9ers.
And I've got to give Playmates extra credit for not going the cheap route and reusing a body, instead retooling an existing one and making Sisko with accurate height and build proportions
Like many of these exclusives, due to his vintage (damn I feel old) and rarity, and perhaps even popularity, he still commands a high price. Still, this one came at the ridiculous price of £1, proving you can buy the Sisko cheap.
Sisko V Picard brawl! Sisko V Locutus brawl! Frustrate Kira by taking her office! Use him as the Redshirt of the week on the TNG bridge/shuttle and blow him to bits ten times over! Need I say more?
Regular reviewing should resume soon, and sorry for the lack of reviews recently. I had my birthday yesterday and it's been a bit hectic with all the stuff going on, hence the shorter than regular review. If I have the time, a review of Cadet Worf/La Forge may quite possibly be up soon, so trust me, I'm not finished yet!
