Wouldn't Sora be an easy custom? Just give him some new articulated legs?
I wouldn't say anything is easy... If you gotta fix it, it's not good IMO.
To give him articulated knees, without painting, you'd have to find knees that match his pants already on another figure... Pop 'em off that one, cut the legs off Sora and dremel into his leg a hole for the pin on the other knees...
Short of paint matching and sculpt matching up, that's about as easy as it could be, but that's still a lot more work than I wanna do plus it's at the cost of another figure, so even as a customizer I look really negatively on this. Sora should've just had articulated knees... Hell, make his arms angle-cut elbows and give him the knees, but just give him the knees.
By the way Hunter I decided to check out hte Clones in ROTS, as I'd wanted to kind of anally slow-mo the DVD anyway and just look at all the little details I haven't seen... I don't agree that the Carbine has overtaken the blaster rifle as the most common Clone blaster though... It's more prominent though in ROTS than it was in AOTC. It was barely noticeable in AOTC actually.
In ROTS though I looked at a couple key Clonie moments to decide... Only on Felucia did the Carbine seem to outnumber the Rifle... Ironically it's the Commander on Fellucia with the rifle while all his squadmates that kill Aylya have the Carbine.
Anyway, I checked out a couple other sequences for a couple areas and I came to these conclusions...
-Utapau... The opening Clones (down the zip lines) all have Carbines, however after that it's not a landslide of rifles but there are definitley more riflemen. Lots of Carbines in there too though, but the Rifles become more prominent. For instance most Cody scenes have landings of squads on Gunships and almost every Clone in the gunships is coming out with a rifle. Cody's also surrounded by guys with rifles and only a carbine here and there.
When the trooper is gunning the Crabdroids, he's using a Carbine but Slow-Mo showed most around him had rifles. There are a ton of Carbines too, just that I see more Rifles by my eye.
Utapau has the most footage to watch... There's lots of both types of weapon seen for sure here. I thought it was the most interesting to sort of analyze. Actually too I was really taken by how incredibly detailed the streets of the subterannean cities of Utapau were. There's tons of detail there, like even roadsigns it seems. Really cool to sit and just ogle all the detail.
-Fellucia... Tough to see a lot since it only zooms in close to Bly and his troops but Bly's the only guy with a rifle, everyone else had Carbines that I saw.
-Mygeeto... I think ONE guy near Bacarra has a Carbine, and Bacarra has one, but it seems to me that every other grunt around Bacarra when he cuts down Mundi has a rifle that I can see. There's some odd background shots that it's tough to judge but I see a mix... I can see Rifles for sure, but I also see a seemingly equal number running with Carbines.
-Kashyyyk... Kashyyyk was the weirdest... The first site of Clones is really the beach preparations. In the shots there you don't see many Rifles at all, mostly just Carbines. I think I saw a rifle here and there but not much.
Cut to the battle though, and the beach has still mostly Carbines but Rifles are much more noticeable... Not a lot, but more for certain. Also, ALL the Clones up in the tree branches and higher positions are sporting rifles, not a Carbine among them, which makes perfect sense militarily since the rifle would be the more accurate weapon by all accounts.
So anyway, I was sorta curious about this anyway so I decided to look into it... I don't think the Carbine's overtaken the Rifle by a long shot then based on what I saw but I also think the Carbine's a lot more prominent for sure. I'm all for it being included with figures, but at this point I think the mass shortage of rifles between the AOTC styled clones not coming with them and the #41 SA not coming wth them is a big hole... I wish Hasbro would fill it by packing in the rifles with Clones so you could decide what gun they get. I'm definitely on a shortage of rifles at this point. Extra commanders I bought have helped fill holes but not a lot, especially with the EE Clone 4-packs needing rifles too.
