    How Tall Will You Make Tallstar?

    During Power-Con weekend, someone mentioned to me that Toyguru was pretty sure Tallstar will have stackable extensions. Do you care? And if yeah, how high will you go?

    I think I wont stack her at all. She looks rather strange extended. But Ill decide when I get her.

    I agree that I think she'll look a little strange with too many extra extensions. I'll probably be getting an extra box set and I'm considering customizing her so her extending is more propotioal (extends below AND above the elbows and knees and maybe waist). We'll see. If I love her with just the regular extensions attached I may not waist my time but I also think a really tall figure in the back of the display would be cool.

    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    I also agree that the stretching looks too weird for me. I'll be leaving her chill as is.

    It reminds me of this:

    Since all the extensions (understandably) will be on one side of the elbow/knee joint, I think more than one or two will start to look weird.
    Does that make sense? I mean, she'll have a reeeeaaaalllyy long bicep area, and a normal size forearm.

    I think it will have to wait till I have her in hand to decide, it would be neat to make her really tall but I worry she would topple over.

    She's staying the size she is in the box as she's not getting out of the box, along with her sisters.

    I agree the neck is the odd looking one, her arms and legs don't look bad at all.
    Now that we've seen her "extended" she would have greatly benefited from having a extendable waist.

    I have problems just getting figures like She-ra to stand up, I finely had to use a doll stand. If I can get her to stand with the leg and arm extended then that's what I hope to do. I'm very excited about this sisters, I can't wait to see the reviews.

    Since one of her abilities is helping others across obstacles, you can make her into a bridge, so that other figures can walk over her.

    I got 3 subs. Opening 2 and keeping the third MIB. So how tall can she get with that?

    Too bad they don't have her hips extendable as well. She would look awesome that way!

    It can get pretty expensive getting more extensions. How about asking if we can get some more Tallstar extensions in a Weapons Pak?

    Ill make her as tall as the extensions in the pack allow me to, to make her stand out a LITTLE better in the back of my shelf where the 3 of those will be going. She is by far the most interesting of the 3 in my opinion, so, she'll be awarded the height advantage from the back row as a reward, but remain with her sisters, as they are sisters and I pose **** together, she loses out on front row for me, but its not because of her, its because of the pink one, and starlas new head..... the other one made her tolerable that we saw from sdcc...


    would i buy more star sisters JUST for expansion pieces? NO! im not wastin $60 on the other 2, nor would i buy from a customizer (tho i do hope some customizers make the expansion pieces, as eventually i WOULD want some for extendar and certainly mekaneck) but id use em from a weapons pack if they came in one......

    speaking of mekaneck, we all can guess his neck will extend ~3" like his previous 2 incarnations, but for him? Id buy 2-3 just to give that bad boys lame 3" extension some small blue pill power!!!!

    I don't think I like the neck extension but the rest of it looks pretty sweet. I need an Extendar to go with her now.

    Each coil is replaced with longer coil, as the weight of the brass pushes the collar bone down and compresses the rib cage. Contrary to popular belief, the neck is not actually lengthened; the illusion of a stretched neck is created by the deformation of the clavicle.

    I was thinking it might be nice to take the extensions off of one arm and put them on the other to make one super-extended arm.
