G.I. Joe Shows How To Give The Ladies What They Want - Double-Jointed Elbows

G.I. Joe Shows How To Give The Ladies What They Want - Double-Jointed Elbows


Jay Cochran - April 04, 2021
For a long time now Marvel Legends collectors have been asking Hasbro to give their female Marvel Legends figures double-jointed elbows. Something for the most part Hasbro even today seems very reluctant to do.

Well it looks like the folks working over on Hasbro's 6" G.I. Joe Classified line have no such qualms about giving the female characters double-jointed elbows. Thanks to Douglas who has posted an in-hand image for the new Classified Lady Jaye figure, we can she that she very much has double-jointed elbows, and she doesn't even have sleeves to remotely cover them up.



So what do you think after seeing this figure, should Hasbro give all their 6" Female figures double-jointed elbows including the ones in the Marvel Legends line?

As some of the comments have previously stated, I would rather improve the amount of accessories than double jointed female Marvel Legends.

Remember everyone that ML runs a bit bigger than most other 6 inch lines, so the double-jointed elbows may not be as garish or sculpt-breaking on them.

That being said, I think that the ladies lacking double-jointed elbows (and boot articulation) is what really holds the line back

I'd settle for single joints that are more like Black Series or Classifieds, especially if it can get their better hip, torso and butterfly joints. The state of the current Marvel Legends female bodies is sub-par however we look at it though, and it's easily my biggest bummer with the line. They deserve better.

Because of his shoulders?

Basketball shoulders, tiny wrists, Frankenstein hands, gorilla arms, and probably the loosest torso in the game....

You want an Iron Clad argument against extra articulation? Check out the ToyBiz Falcon. Talk about nightmare fuel.

It is always nice to see the evidence that they can make double elbows on the ladies but keep the arm looking slim and doesn't distort them, I also am not one of those people who really care all that much about the whole double elbow thing, sure it would be cool, but currently they don't really do it on legends, so I'm fine with that, also I'm in the group who thinks it might make the figures too breakable, but hey, w/e

Yeah, I just looked at my Toybiz Series 4 Elektra and personally I'm glad Hasbro cut back on the articulation...

I never understood why double-jointed elbows were considered a problem considering Toybiz did them. I'm sure there are some with loose joints, but I have multiple TB female figures that hold their poses just fine. Maybe I don't manipulate them enough.

My floppiest figure is the first tiger stripe Wolverine Hasbro did for the Red Hulk wave. He collapses fairly regularly. The TB brown costume Wolverine is the same mold and stands much better. Maybe the real problem is in the plastics used. Quality and cost are always in competition.

I think double-jointed elbows are pretty much essential for posing psychics and weapon handlers. Jean Grey needs to touch her head and Psylocke needs to be able to wave her sword all over the place.

You gotta pick a side here. Your either an advocate for double joints and are fine with the reported problems or you're okay wither the current standard an the limited articulation issues.

I know the ML team is prone to BS reasoning behind some of the weird choices they make, but I happen to agree with them on this. To me, double joints on female figs make the smaller arms even more flimsy and actually look more gangly and awkward. I like the aesthetics of the single joint and not too upset about the limitations.

In general, I find the double joints crowd is also the toe joint crowd, and that's cool, if that's your thing, but i think you're still in the distinct minority, regardless of how outspoken the ACBA community. I don't expect a change any time soon. At least for ML.
