    25th Anniv figure question

    Are many of the figures in the 25th line incapable of holding their weapons? I was trying to set up a scene with my trooper the other night and the rifle was a complete pain in the rear end to keep in his grip. Roadblock was another issue, his hands dont seem molded to hold his weapon in a firing position. Am I the only one having this issue? If not, is this something Hasbro was going to address in future figure corrections? If not I can cope, but it would be nice for some of the figures that cant hold weapons in a firing pose, be able to do so in the future.

    PS sorry if this had been asked and answered previously

    No problems here so far. Some can be a little difficult to get to hang on, but eventually they stay.

    I have had some issues with the wave 1 Joes. They can hold their weapons, but one bump and they drop. I have noticed the wave 2 figures to be a vast improvement. If you collect Star Wars, you know how well they grip their weapons, and these are just like that.

    I've also had troubles, especially with Roadblock and Gung-Ho.

    Basically, with the wave 1, I just take an exacto-knife and cut away the trigger fingers, with this, the other fingers grip the gun perfectly, and the trigger finger stands at the improper "ready" position. I have LJ, Serpy and Buzzer, but I havn't open them to test out there weapons. But when I find a Beachhead, I'll see if they have molded the hands with a free trigger finger. Mainly, the problem with wave 1 for me is the trigger finger molded together with the rest of the fingers.

    My main problem is that it is hard for some figures to hold large weapons with two hands, particularly Flint. . .but, what can you do? They look so cool otherwise.

    I can't get Buzzer to hold his chainsaw with both hands and not look like he's going to drop it. Plus, the blade of the saw is made of a really rubbery plastic that bends easily and stays bent until you bend it hard in the other direction.
