I am a massive supporter of multiple points of wing articulation in the MOTUC line, it adds so much to the pose-ability of figures and adds that overall wow factor to the figure design for that character!
Swiftwind is beautiful and I am extremely happy with the horse buck but IMHO he would have been even better if he had one more point of articulation in the wings so you could fold back or expand his wings for some more dynamic poses.
When it comes to standard MOTUC characters who have wings like 200X Sorceress or Angella, I really hope that 4HM look at adding multiple points of wing articulation to their design. The 'Hawkgirl DC Universe Classics' figure was a great example of how this can be done successfully and org member Kalel0201 did a great custom of 200X Sorceress with the Hawkgirl wings. Emiliano's recent Angella vision also shows a design with multiple points of wing articulation which again illustrates the strength of adding this feature to the wing design.

Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of the DCUC Hawkman/girl wings. Something about them is just a little off to me. I think it might be that they are too flat. Anyway, I hope the Horsemen come up with something a little better for MOTUC wings.
Something similar would be awesome! I can't wait for any of them!!!
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
Fully articulated wings like this would make or break 200x Sorceress & Angella for me.
So I'd like to see them.
Nice custom Charlie Brown!
I quite like Hawkgirl's wings, although it would be nice if they could make the central "spinal column" a little less obtrusive without sacrificing any of the movement.
Completely agree with the request for articulated wings as shown.
I wish DC Classics would do a Hawkworld uniform set of Hawkman and Hawkwoman. I've so many golden/silver age Hawks but not the quite stylish 90s version.
Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized
Voice your support in the Cardboard Spacesuit/Robot thread:
honestly i don't consider it a real custom, 'cos wings are removable:
it's more a kind of advanced mix & match.
i envision the arm wings more like armguards than real wings, now
(that's why i used the red harness, to match all the "armor" parts).
unarticulated wings work fine on swiftwind, but i think that humanoid
winged characters would deserve fully articulated wings, both for display
options and for saving same room having them folded on the back, if
I like the HawkGirl wings.
The concept wings are too skinny IMO.
I like the fold back action of the HawkGirl wings ALOT!!
I posted this same concern a while back in both here and Facebook about Swifty's wings. I totally agree that the added wings articulation is a MUST!
