....Wow hahahahahahahahahahaha. They showed us the graphic render for that figure at SDCC 2016 and this is the final product well over a year later? How did they manage to completely botch this figure given how much time it took to put it out? Huge disappointment.
Another paint job completely ruining a figure. A mean what is that beard on Corey Graves? Is it really that outwith the budget to get some stubble. I'm sick to death of just bold beards like the Rollins head as well. It can ruin decent face scans. Fix it MattelDesignTeam
They have the exact same articulation as the old basics. The bicep swivel is just in the elbow now. Nothing has changed.
Well this is news to me. I take back what I said.
You're good. There was a small war in the SDCC thread. If you have any of the DC Collectibles figures a lot of them have the same type articulation. There's literally no change it just moved down. I think it actually makes the figure aesthetically better.
And yes the ONE Point of Articulation is still "there" but NO, it is NOT aesthetically better. You lose a lot of poses with the 1 PoA being in the elbow now. You're kidding yourself if you think it's better. I want to post pics for comparison but I have photo bucket and it's the drizzling shi ts.

We've already seen pics. Everything the bicep cut could do the Elbow cut could do. And yes it is aesthetically better looking. Looking at the human body, there isnt a "bicep cut" like there is with wrist & elbow. Elbow to shoulder is essentially 1 piece up to the socket.
Jakks TTL arms. Ugh. This is such a shame man. We're 77 series into the basic line, this isn't acceptable.
I don't think it's TTL bad, but it definitely seems worse, and this set is really plain. I guess we won't know for sure what these new arms are like until we have the figures in hand.
The new elbow design has worked out well. They were too sharp and pointy at first, but once they got rid of that, they are actually better.
But I'm not sure this is better. And the ankle articulation was pretty worthless, but getting rid of it altogether is not an improvement. If the Mattel WWE line has peaked and begun it's downhill slide, it's gonna be a shame.
