View Full Version : plastic jacks?

Does anyone know if the new plastic jacks are going to be more possible than their pewter comrads? i had to cut off the conecttion point in the arms, GS the area then reattach the Connetion point on the old Pewter models in order to reposition the arms. i am hoping that the new plastics are more like the lite jacks were you can put the arms anywhere on the ball joint.

Possible? Oh, wait, do you mean poseable?
If the Retribution jacks are any indication, they'll be EXTREMELY poseable, except in the legs. Those only fit together one way. It's just as well, though, because most of the "conversions" or "dynamic poses" I've seen that involve a model's legs just end up looking terrible.

Oops type O. yes i meant poseable.
i agree with leg thing i tried to give my Iron clad a runnig pose it came out looking like he was either tripping on somthing or going to kick somthing.
Well remember it is now plastic. Plastic is infinitely easier to cut through then metal.
So yeah, more poseable for less work.

(not counting cutting the model up and gluing it back together), the models Aren't terribly poseable.
Though, they are much more than the old Khador heavies.
What they have (on the RoS heavies) is a ton of Ball and socket joints which gives huge options in posing; however, they're heavy warjacks, and have been 'designed' to stand in a certain pose...and look funny otherwise.

You've got some choices with just the basic ball joints. Though with the way the legs are, something that looks more natural for a walking pose does look best. My Manticore has a lumbering pose to it that looks a little intimidating.
