I just got a loose Ackley through an on-line auction service (that shall not be named in this message). I paid a reasonable price for it, so I am happy.
Here is my question:
Do you find that the articulation on the Acklay is somewhat limited? The "shoulder" joins aren't true ball joints, so some legs only move up-and-down while others move only side-to-side.
As a result, it tends to fall over on its face a lot. This makes it hard to pose him with his claws off the ground. Also, over time, the abdomen sags downward and he just kind of comes to rest on his "elbows". Its like he's saying, "Hey, I was out late at a party last night. I'm too tired to eat this Jedi right now."
Still, its a cool beast and I'm glad I got it.
