Should Hasbro retire the Bucky Cap and Hyperion Body molds?

Double jointed arms on the women would be a plus as well. I can be done. The Black Series Jaina Solo accomplished it.

She looks like she should go to the doctors to get her left arm rebroken and set properly.

Even though peeps continue to lambast Hasbro for no double jointed elbows on their females (and with respect to Shartimus Prime), THIS is the reason they haven't done so as yet (I believe the movie Captain Marvel will have DJE's, but we'll see). I'm quite sure when they figure out how to make them look anatomically correct, we'll enter a new nightmare era for Legends, because then we'll have the return of the "redo" nation.

It's a specific pose to show off the joints. It looks fine in other shots.

Clearly the technology is there.

 

I had to watch two YouTube videos, because it looks like a single joint elbow. And my understanding is, it is not a double jointed elbow as it is missing a second hinge to give it the "double joint". Granted it is designed in a way that gives it an impressive range over most women's elbow joints. But design wise, other than the design allowing for extra, there is no other difference.

It is definitely a step in the right direction and can clearly be posed so that it can look good. So I do applaud Hasbro for the effort, and like all new design attempts take time to work out the kinks. Just look at the digital face painting.

If it happens it happens. Maybe they do it specifically for those figures that need better range of motion. I'm not gonna be on the boat to "redo nation" if it does happen. I like the way the female arm joints look just fine as it is. I've watched the videos as well and they still look wonky and flimsy. Those pics posted are specifically positioned to make them look less so. It's not a true DHJ, it's more of an extended hinge joint and it looks really awkward in a "relaxed" pose. Any pose that has the figure's arm extended past about 100 degrees looks out of place. You'll see it once you get that figure in hand. It's not good and I really don't wanna see it in ML.

I feel like the Bucky Cap mold is the ideal mold for many of the Male Marvel characters, its got the right proportions. Personally I like the feel of that figure mold more that the Hyperion mold so, Hasbro can retire it if they want.

Everything you just said.  Everything.  I was coming in here to say.  But you already said it.

It's a good point, I mean, I want to see improvements in some of the bodies' articulation, but not at the cost of continuity across the line.

 I mean last time I checked this was a superhero based line & the males/female heroes are supposed to represent the pinnacle of physical perfection, not real world physiques.

I don't think Blob got that memo. :biggrin:

Blob, Doc Ock, Mad Thinker, Mole man, Big Bertha , Thin man, etc are the exceptions to the rule.

If they continue to use the Hyperion torso for characters like Bishop or that Cable with accessories that lay on their cheesy looking pecks, then it's not so bad. But if the chest is bare, it just looks so corny. I want a Tiger Shark remake soooo bad. He was so half-@$$ed. And I'm taking my sweet time but I'm currently in the process of a Sabretooth custom on the Omega Red body. It looks fantastic so far. I wish they would've did this originally.

I don't mind the Bucky Cap mold though. The short feet is my only gripe really.
