Look today at most 3P Masterpiece offerings and what's one thing that stands out? Individually segmented fingers that can mimic any position you can think of. Now look at Takara Masterpiece hands. Fingers (usually 3) molded together, and pins that allow them to move together. Segmented digits gives far greater range and motion, but they sometimes lack the strength to hold the weapon securely in place. Granted, some 3P who offer this have designed their weapons to hold better than others, but generally this is the downfall of 3P hands. Case in point: KFC. The Ultra Magnus hands have no problem holding his gun. Same for Soundwave. But the hands for Optimus Prime will drop his rifle if you look at him wrong. Takara's hands are kind of hit or miss. Usually they offer a very secure fit: look at any of the mid-sized Autobot cars for an example. The only two that don't really work that well is Grimlock and Rodimus. Remember trying to get Starscream, Thundercracker and/or Skywarp to hold Megatron in gun mode? Ugh. And pinned hands are really limited. MP-10 can kind of do this. Magnus and Soundwave both can with their Takara hands, but generally we're left to open palms or odd looking fists because the thumb doesn't curl naturally. So what do you guys n' gals think? Does Takara need to update their hand designs so they can offer as much as 3P does? Or do you think what they offer now is the better way to go?
