Q1: The Alpha arctrooper that comes in the comic 2-pack is amazing and I hope Hasbro continues to use this mold for future arctrooper releases (well, a softgoods kama would be nice!) But I noticed many who complain, including myself, that the head always pops off whenever you try to remove his helmet and basically gets stuck inside there.
While Hasbro has done a great job on many removable helmet figures (the Stormtroopers, eps3 clones, DS Gunner) it does seem like the eps2 clone helmet often has problems (e.g. the Evolutions clone pilot head is too big for the helmet, and warps the helmet whenever he wears it). Maybe instead of doing removable helmets here, why not have a swappable head instead? One head is the helmet, the other head would be the Jango head.
Q2: Why is it that some of your figures lately have had ridiculously wide spread legs? We've seen this with the TAC Rebel Honor Guard, DS Trooper, VTAC Endor Leia, VTAC Snowtrooper, almost all of the Concept McQuarrie figures(!!!!) and now some of the upcoming comic 2pack figures like the Infinities Leia and Vader. I don't understand what would prompt Hasbro to design figures whose legs are spread so far apart almost like they were trying to do the splits. Please please just give us neutral leg stances (a wide stance should only be as wide as say the VTSC Biker Scout or RotS #41 Clonetrooper) -- I honestly have avoided buying figures like the DS Trooper (which I otherwise would army build like crazy) because of their unsatisfactory poses.
