Howdy, How y'all doin'?
I saw that people were very upset with ACE. I was too, to be honest. The expression was terrifying, he looks SO shocked. Now, I decided to fix him but I do not know what to think of it.
Try it out for yourself, post the results.

I think the manufacture's missed that top line above his eye. Fix-it and he will look like a functioning member of society.

looks like someone dropped a meatloaf in thier astronaut diapers ;)

Love the first pic. Looks like he stopped off at the local portrait studio for his senior class photo. hehe
Nice work, that was the first thing I noticed is that line was missing.

Has anyone else tried this in particular?
does anyone else slice the fingers to fit weapons? I do & it works really well.
Pilots can't have lazy eyes! I hope mine isn't too messed up when he arrives this week.
does anyone else slice the fingers to fit weapons? Is this idea to fit bigger weapons or smaller weapons ?
Can you show a pic ?

I think he is scared of the giant thumb sneeking up behind him

Ace's expression looks like he was surprised to making this line...lol All in all though, it doesn't bother me to much...

I still don't know why you wanna put eyeliner on your Joes.

Think he means separating the index finger from the hand enough to allow it to fit into the guns trigger guard.
In which case, I've done it to a few of my Joes. On a Destro figure, I cut the trigger guard off. Yeah he lives dangerously, makes the Baroness hot.

I just got back to this thread today. (You guys are too much)
YES I cut the 1st finger to fit into the trigger. (I will post a picture sometime soon) Though some weapons (as Hicks points out) do not allow that finger to fit! I thought that this wasn't "customizing" but more of a tune-up. (Why did they not make every 1st finger seperated, like Beachhead?)

It's tougher to make the molds that way and assure good casting, I'd imagine. And investing a secondary step, having the finger separated manually by a worker, increases cost.

now if we could just fix the fact his head looks like a bus parked on it...
