I agree, I think we've seen that Hasbro can do all the elements of what many would consider to be "near perfect" articulation (ball jointed hips, shoulders, head, knees, etc.)...but it hasn't really all been put together in one figure. Instead, it has been spread throughout various figures. I'm a fan of articulation as well, as long as it doesn't start detracting from the sculpt. To me, figures like the VOTC Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Stormtrooper are examples of a near perfect combination of sculpt and articulation. If we had the majority of figures made in this fashion, I'd be pretty happy. Particularly the main characters and army builders. Figures like the senators don't need to have that much for me personally, but still be fairly articulated. It does seem as though we're getting there though. The Star Wars figures have certainly come quite a ways in that department since the POTF2 (and even, for the most part POTJ) days.
