    title, just got silverstreak recently and his heads really annoys me because no matter how i pose him his head always looks down, got smokescreen on the way and im assuming he'll have the same problem.
    Anyone know of any simple fixes other than ball jointing the head?

    I don't know what you're talking about, none of mine have their head looking downwards.

    They have a 'turtleneck sweater' effect going, but I never noticed them stuck looking downward, unless you also have the upper body facing down as well. (photos might help in this case)

    Ironhide and Ratchet however ... absolutely.

    its sorta because if you have his head facing straight he's back heavy so i have to lean him forward slightly to get him to stand up.

    I adjust the chest (hood) a little bit if they are in a pose with the downward look. Doesn't really uncover anything that shouldn't be covered and makes them look more level.

    well, you do have to lean him forward if you don't pull the feet out - is this your issue?

    otherwise i don't know what you're talking about either

    You shouldn't be hard on them, maybe they are just shy?

    nope, mine stand straight and look straight, but the doors and skinniness of the mold really annoys me, nowhere near as good of a mold as it could have been

    For me the biggest thing about that mold is the feet. I'm wishing they were a little longer for more stability.

    They're both old and have scoliosis. It's rude and politically incorrect to poke such fun at old veterans and war heroes. For shame!
