Double Jointed Elbows would really be great.....


Recommended Posts

The elbows are really the weak points in terms of articulation and poseability for both the new Joes and ML. I appreciate that Hasbro is trying innovate, but reducing range of motion is not an improvement. Hopefully they will correct this soon.

I'm not sure what the deal is. The ball-joint elbows seem to work for the SW army-builders, why not here?


I think double-jointed elbows may be too much. I don't want any drastic changes to the articulation at this point, just that they keep them (ei: Lady Jaye, Roadblock, Destro!) all the same.

I don't think they need double hinged elbows as much as the existing design needs to be reworked. All it would take is trimming away some of the excess material around the elbow socket.


If you've got an exacto knife and the time, it's also a very easy fix to do on your own. Pop the forearm out of the socket. Trim around the bicep socket (even a little trimming improves the range). Replace forearm. The forearm/ bicep joint will not look as fluid sculptwise, but the improved articulation makes the figures a lot more fun to play with.


Yeah, it sucks that Hasbro didn't fix this problem preproduction, but it really takes no skill to fix.
