I haven't been on this forum long but I have seen enough posted about flaws. I wanted to start a thread that voiced common general flaws or rather shortcomings in designs from the fans point of view but also solutions. Please don't bash particular figures, just hoping to get 3RD PARTY and Takara to build and design better figures at these prices. Problems AND solutions welcome. I'll start. Combiner ratchets weak. I feel like most figures don't have enough teeth and they arent deep enough so they move too much. I think the larger the toy, the more deep teeth it should have to hold poses without flopping. Die cast gears may help or harder plastic. I thought springs to keep pressure when needed and deeper grooves would solve a lot of the issues with larger combiners. Leg gap for elbow joints. I hear a lot of complaints yet they all keep doing it. Cartoon always drew figures fuselages bending so when we see gappy legs for elbows we go nuts. Can't arms for combiners extend their whole body in two places, just enough to get a double joint similar to what I'm guessing scorias tail is like? I think it would make the alternative mode easy and more atractive. Touch up paint. Not a lot of it but if you know your prone to chip or wear in some areas, why not include some in a tiny tube etc. Thoughts other problems/solutions?
