    There are a few figures I have that no matter what pose I put them in still look fantastic. So I wondered what other people think on this subject.

    Are there figures that you feel look incredible regardless of the pose? Are there figures you believe cannot have a bad pose?

    For me, WFC Optimus, WFC Soundwave, RtS Jazz, Generations Warpath, and FP Bruiticus all hold to this rule. I have yet to see any of them in a bad pose, even if it just me setting it aside after randomly messing with it. I don't think there is a post that these figures can hold that isn't amazing.

    Now I love Warpath, but he has some limitations. The way his feet/lower legs TF hiders him from being able to go flat foot in a few poses, and his hands not having rotation or ball joints. Other than that he's awesome. Wreck-Gar is another. I've yet to find a bad pose for him. RTS LugNut as well, even a waist rotation when they didn't have to.

    HFTD Terradive, WFC CSoundwave(Also, he totally gives me a BSG Cylon vibe for some reason. From thew recent version of the show.), Skystalker is also epic in whatever pose you toss him in.

    If you think he does, then sure.



    I'm glad to see my choices echoed.

    DotM Sandstorm looks great in almost any pose...because you can put him in almost any pose. The only limitations are really just the alt. mode kibble bars that fold up on his chest making it look odd for him to stare right into something he obviously can't see through.

    Thunderwing doesn't do much for me, sadly.

    Currently, for me, it's Generations Wheeljack. He has a surprising amount of articulation, and the large feet keep him steady in whatever pose I put him in. Because he doesn't need so much support, I don't have to compromise when posing, and he always looks fantastic.
