Like it or not, Hasbro’s probably not going to move away from 5POA for a while in the 3.75″ lineup. But, maybe there’s a better way for them to entice the market to purchase more of these figures.
Would a set of alternate arms be a good way to do this? For myself, yes, this would be a very fun way for Hasbro to make this product line much more appealing as it would help aleviate some of the frustrations with the 5POA concept.
