I remember that I thought it would be cooler if they were more posable, especially when some of them had problems pointing their gun directly to the enemy and not always in the same way as they usually could because of the limited articulation in some figures. But I thought it was probably because the toy had to change into a vehicle and found that cool enough that this reason was good enough for me as a kid. And figures like Masters of the Universe had not much posability either, so I figured it was quite normal. Even MASK figures only had more articulation regarding their knees. But I was amazed of the posability of Actionforce figures or Marshall Bravestarr *g* What were your thoughts as a kid or did it not matter for you?
