    CW Magnaguard has gummy leg syndrome!

    NOOOO! I just got this figure last week, and today I found it sideways on my desk. When I went to stand it back up, it no longer could, the right leg had given out and then bent quite a bit while laying down. Also, the hip had gone from normal to loose, adding to the troubles.

    It's weird, these legs didn't even look that thin, but it appears the thin shins (ha!) are structurally weak and the soft plastic took its toll.

    If they had included knee and ankle articulation, this wouldn't have happened.

    droid and armored figures (clones & stormies) should become titanium figures. they'd cost a little more but i'd buy them because they would actually stand up without wilting.

    I was looking at mine last night when I opened it and thought the knees were articulated. I was disappointed to see they werent.

    I had the same thing, they LOOK articulated because of the design, they reek of having a pin-hinge on the upper knee, and clearly they could have this, the design all but screams for Hasbro to enable this - especially when the knees are larger than the articulated elbows.

    Perhaps I should leave mine carded.

    What did you guys think of the assasin droid?

    You'd think for over $7 a figure they could at least use good plastic. Especially anything that is going to have thin arms and legs.

    IG-86 rules! Not only does he have a comparable paint job and much more interesting sculpt, but I have him free-standing on my desk right next to all the other CW droids, he's in this cool guns-ablazin', wide-stance, bent-kneed pose, and he's STILL standing after several weeks. Knee and ankle articulation here made all the difference, the joints take up the stress and the figure keeps standing. It doesn't hurt either that the cylindrical design of his limbs is going to be stronger than the flatter design of the BD and Magnaguard legs.
