    Yeah the way they were design were crappy. But knowing that I would face a problem with the arms when I opened it, as soon as I did it I analysed the arms and I developed a simple solution (which I'm hoping people realised too).

    Just rotate the upper arm pieces (the black parts) and this results in greater arm articulation overall and not his arms don't look pressed to his body and stand outwards - ultimately giving him a better look. When transforming him simply rotate the arms which takes just a few seconds.

    Does anyone want pics of this if no-one's tried this?

    The first pic is the default arm placement. And the second is possible by twisting the arms. Pic 3 shows a comparison To your left is the new placement and your right is the default placement. Pic 4 shows a pose with the default placement and pic 5 shows the better movement range with the new placement.

    Sorry for the picture quality, I took them on my phone.
