Better plastic
« on: December 27, 2002, 09:43 AM »
I am getting tired of these figs that won't stand up and are so soft that we need to give them mini viagra..The weapons SUCK.  Please harder plastic.

This may be too far off topic, but, has anyone been able to connect the Bespin weathervane 'horizontally'? I've tried a few times, but, the plastic is so soft, the post bends everytime :(
Now, it  it does fit fine 'vertically', but, theres no way to display it that way.

It's not that far off topic,  we are talking about soft plastics.  I have only been able to get the weathervane to stick horizontally once.  The suction wasn't strong enough.  The plastic making up the whole thing is pretty weak in my opinion.

How about no more buttons, levers or Wheels on the back of figures. I like the way things were in the POTJ line. :'(
Or at make feature that works (any one get "arobics Anakin" tatooine attack to lift his leg  )
But like most people I will be happy buying them as long as they are being  made

Although this doesn't count for the figures, I have read that all weapons under 2 or 3" (I can't remember which) are made of softer plastic so they can be passed easily if swallowed by a child.

That said, can you imagine Momaw Nadons gun.......... :o

All the weapons for the Saga line I think suck, all because of their softness.  Djas Puhr's guns are by far the worst guns I have ever dealt with in my life.  My someone who makes repros could do a better job making these.

I guess it's partly for safety, I'm NOT letting my 2.5 year old son get a hold of my figures, guns or lightsabers! OR my inquisitive cockatiel bird  ;)
