    I like the amount that they have. Retains a great looking sculpt but not looking like a bunch of ball joints like Marvel Legends do.

    I seriously hope they don't introduce the upper thy articulation with MOTUC figs, like they have done with DCU Classics. Its just a step to far for my tastes. I loved the DCUC Wonder Woman and variant at the prototype stage.

    But at SDCC when they showed pictures of them, it appears Mattel have added upper thy articulation.

    On bare skin I think the joins looks really noticable, and it has ruined these figures for me. (I am seriously considering not buying them because of this.)
    On figures where the legs are painted, like Star Fire or Nightwing the join can be hidden a little better.

    I just think the line is so much more noticable on bare skin, and I seriously hope they don't include it in MOTUC, especially if the figure has exposed legs.

    I'm happy BUT I would have been just as happy with a tad less. The mid torso and ankle and even the bicep articlulation has always been a bit too much for me.

    Regardless, I really can't be happier than I am with what we have on the MOTUC plate as is! I really do like what we have seen.

    I must say though... definitely NOT more articulation!

    I like them the way they are! And I've never really been a fan of the super articulation, but the 4H are doing a good job with the sculpts so the articulation isn't as noticeable.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I totally agree with what you said about the thigh articulation. In that pic with the two WW, it also looks like they might have given the second one hip articulation.
    These MOTUC have just enough for me, no complaints.

    actually, yes.

    that's one thing I never had a gripe about at all.

    just the right amount of articulation.

    AMEN! That's it.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I'm exstatic about the new MOTUC line, however I wish they had gone for double jointed articulation. For those who don't like the look of an articulation, if the figures are articulated at the elbow or knee in the first place, a double joint doesn't really look any worse than a single one...

    The 4 horsemen's females from their own line have double joints and they look really fabulous...

    The joint I wish they REALLY would ad would be a proper wrist articulation, not a swivel but a proper one that would have allowed He-man to really hold his sword the right way!

    I'm cool with the current articulation. I think it works well for the Masters Of The Universe. I just don't see them looking as good if they used the Marvel Legends level of articulation.

    Very happy.

    Double-jointed knees and elbows would have been cool, but the range of movement offered by the single-joint is decent and accommodates the larger arm and leg muscle size/sculpt.

    I agree, the loose joints, arms and legs are a huge risk for this ADULT COLLECTOR'S line.

    I originally voted "No, there's too much!", but now that I have the first figures they've grown on me. I actually started to like the articulation. Anyway, I still prefer mini-statues over action-figures, but that's just me...
    Well, and articulation tends to loosen with time passing by - I'm not sure I'll still be happy about it in some years...

    I am very happy with the articulation of these. For me, it is just enough before going overboard.
