The updated Sonic Super Pack from the last half of 2012 that has the figures with newer articulation shown next to the figures from the older Super Pack. Made by Jazwares.
The new ones look awful!! Thicker limbs were the OPPOSITE of what this line needed!! They all look fat now.
I don't think they look awful but I do think they looked better with thinner limbs. However, the bidden articulation plus improved range of motion makes up for the thickness IMO
I like how they've thickened the limbs with newer releases. Seems much more accurate and hides the joints better.
Actually, its a bit less accurate I think. The official art of Modern Sonic has very thin limbs. The old figures had the a more accurate limb thickness but these new ones hide the articulation much better and have more range of movement.
Huh... Alright, yeah, don't know what I was thinking when I typed that. It's an unfortunate trade-off, but time will tell if it was worth it. Have they at least fixed the QC issues that plagued the Free Riders releases?
Actually, they seem to be using a different type of plastic now. It's much sturdier and the joints work well unlike many of the joints on the Free Riders figures. Aside from a little warping on Sonic's arm that a little hot water can fix, there isn't anything to really complain about.
Well how do you like that... Sort of makes me glad I missed out on the original set then. I'm glad JW has finally applied the lessons from the feedback people have been given.
