    I really love this Figure, but i really hate, that the elbows are wrong! They turned false! I've ried to swap them, it works, but the elbows swap false too with the swap!

    Any ideas?

    Actually, the elbows turn the right way.

    The thing is though : the default position of his hands is a 90 degrees twist inwards, opposed to a normal humanoid hand.

    So, if you try to get the hand in a normal humanoid position ; i.e. fingers pointing inwards - then you will actually turn the back of the elbow inwards ; which.... like with any human...cannot bend to the back.

    ugh... the side of the arm where his gatling gun sits is actually the topside of the wrist.

    Swivel the underarm towards his torso, then you can bend it as it should. It's just that his hands are put on his arms in a weird way, probably because of the gatling gun barrel being in the way.

    Anyway, the mod to the elbow mod is like forcing a person's elbow to twist the other way around. Yeah, it makes it seem 'correct' but it's a bit of a hack.

    * edit : see pic plse. Starscream's backhand in "normal position" faces forward.
    So if you try to swivel the underarm in order to get the hand in a normal human position, i.e. backhand facing outwards to the side... you would actually twist a person's elbow to his torse. Yeah... that won't turn inwards.

    But indeed, you might want to try Tamo's solution.

    yeah, I respect you just want a solution ; which involves snipping off a piece of the black elbow hinge piece.

    ...but anatomically speaking, it's like breaking someone's elbow, only because his hands are fixated in an unnatural way.

    Anyway, goodluck with the mod ! :thumbs2:

    Ehm, I haven't got the figure yet, but eh... isn't it possible to swap the black elbow pieces ...so that the rounded off side, points to the opposite side ; so then if you twist the arms in transformation 180 degrees the arms will turn the way you want it ?
