Marvel Legends has been the most successful use of the "build a figure" gimmick. Mattel has used its own version, collect and connect, mostly with its superhero lines, and they have used it for the Ghostbusters line as well. Since I was getting the whole team anyway, I also ended up with this Rown figure. It has very limited articulation that only uses swivels, and has a kind of awkward pose (the legs are only articulated at the ankles). It's basically a free figure, so I can't complain too much, but it is hardly the most impressive example of a collect and connect figure. Interestingly, there was a regular Rowan figure available to purchase in the lower priced section of the line. It has more articulation, and I believe it has the same light up feature as Mr Stay Puft. So if you're looking for a Rowan figure, that might be the better choice.
