I don't mind the figures with full articulation except for the legs. Kind of fun having a combo of the old and new, especially since their size more closely matches the original figures. It's nice to still be able to pose them side by side, as opposed to ARAH and 25th Joes. But the articulation I can't stand is the swivel elbows. It's like a puzzle trying to figure out which way to turn them to get a pose done. Just takes all the fun out of it.

I agree poor articulation is a waste of plastic.

I don't loose any sleep over the articulation, but it would be nice if they did it like the Joes.

Eh, i prefer the more articulated figures. i hear alot of SW collectors spouting that tired old line of "i prefer less articulation so my figures look better" gah! That's what statues and maquettes are for!

But they have a figure for every single pose.

During episode II the fig were nicely sculpted but were pre-posed and had limited articulation. It was annoying. Those stationary pre-posed clones army builders a few years back were just a dumb idea.

I never thought about it until the 25th line began. I saw just how much they could do with the articulation and that made me wonder why they didn't do this with SW. I think that is why I stopped buying them.

I HATE IT!!!! They should all have ball joint hips. I just got a Commander Deviss & the Gunship pilot from the Evolutions pack & their friggin waists don't move. I picked up the 5 Coruscant gray Episode III clone troopers battle pack & all their arms are stuck in the same pose. I got the single carded version & it's a regular figure with elbow articulation but the 5 pack sucks!
I also hate how certain figures won't fit in certain vehicles (same as GI Joe). I tried to stick the Gunship pilot in the new Y-Wing Bomber but nope, not gonna happen. Have to use the skinny cartoony Clone Wars figures. I never bought any of the crappy skinny Clone Wars troopers, so I had to use the Tank Gunner that I just got with my Turbo Tank.
I'm really getting sick of figures not fitting in the vehicles. GI Joe is the worst for that. And all the Joe fans want the old vehicles reissued for the new 25th/ME/ROC lines. What the hell for??? The vintage figures don't even fit in them, you think the new taller figures will fit? Majority of the Joe figures I own (mostly Cobra troopers) don't fit in the vehicles. It's pain in the ass!
