    Sorceress's improved rocker ankle articulation for every upcoming female figures !

    I was surprised no one talked about the Sorceress' brand new 'rocker' ankle articulation. it's basically almost like Teela's but without the weird cylinder part, and while using feet similar to She-ra and Catra, it allows to balance the figure better. It's just really really cool.

    Since there's a lot of threads for what's WRONG with the figures, I thought I'd start this one. Hopefully, Mattel will implement that new ankle joint on all upcoming females... And a She-ra reissue / Variant down the line? That would totally... rock!

    Sounds neat. I will have to re-look at pictures. I just thought she had Teela feet.

    Well technically, they're like She-ra and Catra's feet (same heel height, I just compared :-) But they totally... rock... Allowing better posing. Well, sort of since poor Sorceress got the BG Teela's hips. But the new ankles are really really really neat.

    Oh, okay. Yeah, they do look like She-Ra's boots. I admit I wasn't paying attention to her feet. If they can pull off rocker articulation without that cylinder part, that's awesome! It would be nice if they could cover up the peg holes like they did with Vikor too. I think all the women are going to be sharing two pairs of feet: Teela and She-Ra's...so...it would be a good investment.

    Good suggestion! I'd like to see the females have covered up peg holes as well.

    As for my Sorceress, I haven't opened her yet but the hinge pin in her left ankle is protruding outwards. The inside of the peg looks fine as does everything else about the ankle so I'm not sure why it sticks out so far. It's like the hinge pin on her left ankle is longer than it should be.

    I'm really disappointing that Mattel didn't incorporate the new ankle joint system on all the new female boots. All of the females I've received so far this year have had tight ankles. But my Bubble Power She-Ra had a loose right ankle and that really bugs me because as much as I tend to be more of a MOTU era only snob, I really wanted a good She-Ra 2.0.
