View Full Version : VOTC Stormtrooper hands could be more rubbery

I know this is an odd request, but on the VOTC Stormtroopers and Saga Collection Sandtroopers, the hands are so inflexible that it is nearly impossible to get the figure to hold his blaster in 2 hands, the grip fits fine but the barrel is too rubbery and problematic to get in his other hand. This is a signature Stormtrooper pose, so I'm hoping to see any re-release of the VOTC Stormtrooper mold come out with more flexible hands. Thank you.

Seconded. I even resorted to wedging the palm of one hand open with a blunted knife to get the gun barrel fitting his hand.

I tried that, all I accomplished in the long run was scraping some paint off the hand. :p

more flexible hands. Thank you.

Hah, you should try the evolutions sandy with the orange pauldron!! It's a flipping nightmare with the cannon gun!!

Yeah the evo trooper is as bad. And the hands pop out of their wrist sockets if you try any sort of manipulation.

I'm glad I didn't get the set then, that's a real shame.

It isn't really that big a deal... I just left the weapon in his hand once I got it in his grip. The Evo trooper is such an improvement it is pretty near a necessity.

Once I got the blaster in my figure's hand, it bent. :p
