Be Careful with your new Super Articulated/Poseable Clones!
I got one just today and haven't been able to put the guy down enough hardly to get posts typed up, but in the time I've played with him I've learned that he does NOT pose well in the kneeling position.
I've seen people with him kneeling in pictures, and I believe they're doing possible damage to the thigh joint if they are doing this.
When posting him so he kneels, one the leg which is up is being pried from its socket, and could tear the joint that holds it into the lower torso.
BE CAREFUL, because this leg plastic is the pliable kind and will tear if enough stress is applied to it. I've not hurt mine, but I did notice it doing this while I was trying to pose my clone in a kneeling pose.
Perfect figure? Guess not... The ball/socket joint at the thigh/hip a couple of us have thought about would've gone a LONG way here in helping this figure pose kneeling down (or even sitting. It's his armor that hinders his ability to move at the legs).
I'm not really that disappointed by this, and still consider this the best figure Hasbro's ever done, but it is proof to me that this isn't "perfect" and still has a few kinks to work out.
Maybe in future Super articulated figures???
Hasbro? Ya there? Ya hear that? Super articulated Fleet Troopers, and Stormtroopers, Scouttroopers, and Snowtroopers, and Hoth Rebel Troopers, and Endor Rebel Troopers, and and and... Come on! This Clone rocks!
By the way, I CAN get my Clone in a kneeling pose like on the back of the card, it's possible, but it's not easy and damage CAN occur if you try too hard to pose him like this... So I hope this warning helps anyone possibly getting frustrated posing their clone(s) out there.
God this figure rocks!
