    Hey guys,
    I need some opinions, here. As some of you may know, I'm working on articulating a G1 Fortress Maximus. I had initially created a neck joint that was spherical in shape, but others have suggested a more angular joint to match the blockiness of the figure.

    Here is the spherical neck:

    Here is the new, more angular neck I made (I know it's uneven, I'll be sanding it over if I end up using it):

    Thoughts?

    the second one, by a landslide. I think it fits in the feel of his blocky cube look more smoothly. if possible, it would be nice to put a layer on TOP of that sleeve creating another ridge giving the area more detail.

    The second one looks much better. Also, the first one makes the neck seem way too thin.

    I don't mind the first one, but the second does fit the design aesthetic much better.
