I'm not gonna start an Adam Pile-On because I imagine he's seeing some of the backlash over the pre-reveal talk and so on, but yeah... I never agreed with him on articulation. The only excuse to cut articulation is to cut costs.
If your figure doesn't stand because there's "too much articulation", that is more your fault, or the figure doesn't have ankle joints and the ankles/feet are sculpted like **** (Armorless Clone from 30AC line, I'm looking at you).
And if your figure is falling apart that's a design flaw, as there are ample hyper articulated figures that don't fall apart because they were designed properly. It's much more the exception than the rule there.
For me, GI Joe was everything in the 80's, and Star Wars was only good for giving cool vehicles and monsters for GI Joe to fight (or a cool cloth coat and pistol, to my favorite Joe figure who needed cold weather gear and a pistol that was somehow cooler because it was tiny and more easily lost).
I get "retro" figure love though, but retro figures need retro sculpts to really feel nostalgic, and I consider them a wholly separate thing to just dumbing down articulation on a toy.
This is a whole separate topic though to debate endlessly.
Hasbro cut articulation simply because figures were too expensive to produce in the land of, not just rising, but quickly spiking labor costs. Sucks for us.
