Antilles/Ozzel/"Angle Cut Arms" & Fun!!!
« on: November 19, 2004, 12:56 AM »
Yes, you too can enjoy the fun of simply re-arranging the left and right arms of your mundane human officers from Saga!  :)

OK, perhaps this only works on a few, but...

Captain Antilles, if you take his right and left arms, and simply replace them, and then swap the hands around so they're correct of course, creates Antilles with a very VERY neutral, "Straight" arm pose. 

He can still do the hands behind the back "at ease" pose, but now he can hold a blaster out like he's gonna shoot someone and it looks normal.  The choking feature's gone, but it's a much more neutral and useful set of arms.  Much more diverse in poses.

Ozzel works pretty much the exact same way, though the effect's not 100% as cool as Antilles.  It is still quite great actually.  I highly recommend trying these moves with your figures though.  Makes the Ozzel and Antilles BOTH a much better figure for army building/customizing since the arms are now not nearly as awkward looking when in front of the figure.  Much more natural, and all you need is new heads, and you've got a nice army of officers for your troops on either side of the Galactic Civil War.

NOW GO CUSTOMIZE YOU FREAKS!

Yep, I've noticed the same thing Jesse.  It's funny how such a simple parts swap can look so cool... :D

It took one of the only major CONS I had on Antilles and really (No pun) turned it around.

Sooo, by turning the arms around, I had very little real gripe with the figure at all.  Still not articulated WELL, but better than before.

Time to buy up Antilles figures in my area because I'm whipping up an officer army.

I wish I could get a ton of those helmets he wears for cheap.  It's so much better than the one that's on the Rebel Fleet Trooper... then I could make a much better Rebel army.
