This is something I've wanted to bring up for awhile. Having a wife the
collects and customizes Ball jointed dolls I often wonder, will our hobby ever catch up with them as far as design goes? I
see BJD's with three times the acticulation our figures have, Magnetic faceplates,(so you could go from straight face to smiles,
winks etc...) ears,( for those that want fantasy figures such as elves) in our hobby this would be a nice addition for adding
those small earphones all the operator's use. Magnetic wrist joints, Heck with the right design you could even change the
hair style. I'm talking molded hair not just wigs. Look at what Hot toys did with one of the Predators. The same thing could
be done with any figure they make.
All heads should be eyehole heads not just a select few.
Multi-part heads even at
1/6th scale would not be a hard thing to do. Magnetic joints and stands are much better than what we deal with now. multi
part torsos, ( and I don't mean two or three parts, I mean more like six to eight) should'nt be a hard thing to design.
just think that our figures could have such a larger range of personalizing than what we have now.
The funny thing about
all this is the fact that I posted this in a major forum recently. 200+ people read it and did not reply. But in six months
someone else will do one of the things I have mentioned here and the same 200+ people will say, "WOW what a great idea!".
Think about it.
