    Something really pissing me off lately are the elbow joints on ROTF figure. So many have that god damn annoying problem where when the elbow is facing the palm of their hands are facing. Soundwave, The Fallen, Starscream, and Megatron already have this problem. This really does hurt the figures in my mind, and I really wish they would add some wrist articulation or something to fix it, like what Universe Onslaught and Animated Megs have.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but after all the money and effort put into these new molds, would a couple extra points of articulation really have broke them?

    That said, these new toys are better than I expected so far.

    Time and effort? Nearly all the figures have loads of kibble, no accessories, can barely stand up, fragile as hell, and they don't even bother adding paint applications like the silver on Prime's swords

    I don't
    I was just expressing my concerns on what Hasbro is doing with elbow joints and why I think they should fix it to help improve their figures

    He can look at pictures and form opinions that way. If one must actually own or have touched something in order to comment on it or form an idea or opinion then I hope to god nobody ever says anything about the sun ever again. :lol

    In that case, most of us can never talk about hot chicks. :lol .
    But sometimes you really do need to have the figure in hand before you comment on things. Especially when you comment about the wrists of the fallen not being articulated, because mine do twist.
