Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
Most ball-jointed hips are definitely overrated. The first Vintage Collection version of the Sandtrooper (VC14, the one with the white pauldron and clean armor) has them and it's supposed to help him sit astride a Dewback, but when you bend his legs out to mount him on one he looks ridiculous and completely unnatural. It looks like he's doing a painful split on the poor lizard's back.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
