Do you kind of wish some of the Joe animals would have some basic articulation?

Recommended Posts

I am not saying Timber has to have a hinged jaw(although that would be sweet for some biting action), however, it would be nice if he could move his legs and maybe head. Actually, I would not mind paying 2 pack price for a Timber/Junkyard set with decent articulation. I know it will never happen but I think it would be a cool idea.

Actually yes. I really loved the 8" scale Sigma Six line, and some of those animals are super-bad!! Having a 3:3/4" junkyard with a hinged mouth would be awesome. Maybe Timber with front leg crouching ability would be nice.

I think there are enough animals to warrant a battle pack or limited set of comic packs. Hell, I would even say human/animal packs. I would buy a Serpentor with articulated iguana from the cartoon.

I kinda expect it at some point with SE and Timber at least. Maybe some exclusive 85 update with a new Timber.

The animals don't make it to my display shelf so I don't really care if they are or not. Unless the added cost of which would drive down the quality of the figure in some way then 'no'.

I used to want those, but not anymore. I think they may be too fragile and apt to break more easily.

 

Croc Master's croc did come with a hinged jaw.

Yeah, I've always wanted to see articulated animal "sidekicks" in the Joe lines. Spirit's eagle Freedom would be a challenge, but it'd be cool just to see flappable wings on him.

Some minor articulation might be nice. But not overdone. Timber doesn't need neck, shoulder, knee, hip, ankle, and mid torso joints all at once. However one or two points would be nice. I hate how many of the new animals are stuck in a position that would have rendered them usless to those who played with them as kids. Order with his forever turned head. Both Timbers in the 25th line (the second being the same one as in the movie line) have weird positions. The first with his turned head like the old Order, and the second with his front paw up.

I remember having a 1:18 scale dog toy, a collie, that had simple articulation at the legs and neck (the head could move up and down). I might have it, somewhere, but it is from the 80s I think. Regardless, it was pretty simplistic, so why not, if ANY character getting articulation, Timber?

Our luck it will be some stupid gimmick where you pull on his tail and his wings "flap" (kinda like Airrazor). Actually, they could probably just have a wire frame in the wings so you could pose them.
