I got my case last night and as I was staring at the pile of mini boxes this was the first one I opened up, seeing the swappable hand had me wincing thinking how long it was going to take to put them all together.
It is very neat being able to change the weapon on him, though I'm glad I didn't need to do that with all of them. Love the set.
I like this customization ability and would love to see it extended in some modular way to many figures of a similar size. Wouldn't it be cool if this giant's sword and axe could be interchanged with a later giant's spear and club?
My frost giant came with his right fist broken off at the upper cuff of the wristband. Thanks to a recommendation on these boards, I tried the Loctite Plastics Bonding System -- which sounds very fancy, but was only $3.77 at Home Depot -- and it worked great. I've already dropped the poor guy by accident, and the fist stayed on.

The swappable weapon is a neat idea, but I'm not sure how useful it will be for the long haul. Don't come across frost giants all that often. As a side not, I see a LOT of scale issues between the various large sized figures, but I'm sure others have already commented on it!
GREAT, they have a support site setup but no reply when you open a case. Opened mine up on from their site

and as of today not a word. What craptastic service, IMHO. I have a large collection of miniatures from the other W company and not a one was missing a part. Beginning to regret they are not in the miniatures business any longer; since my alternative is turning out to be a disappointment.
