    [Sylphid] Super Posable Karate Hands

    Another installment in "Why Southeast Asia is better than the Western world in every way."
    Hands with fully posable fingers. They're still being improved, but should be ready for release in a few months.

    Re: [Sylphid] Super Posable Karate Hands

    Ok, that is quite fantastic! I do have questions though:

    Will they be attachable to any figure?

    Come in male/female sizes?

    Come in different skin colors?

    And most importantly, how much will these litte technical wonders cost?

    Well done! Just imagine storm/clone troopers with those type of hands!
    Its just funny because the current trend is to hide as much joints as possible hence the sudden explosion of rubber/soft pvc muscle bodies... then this comes along... joints galore!

    Yes, do you think they rebel against the trend?

    Actually, I don't mind - if I get a few of these, I can easily pose them, glue them shut and then sculpt over the joints, no biggie. It will be so nice to have my figures gripping whatever they are gripping properly...

    It's finally here! I've been dreaming about this for years. But the fingers seem to look longer than normal 1/6 hands.

    That's shocking Mike.... LOL. We were talking about this in chat last night. I was thinking much the same.

    Rock n Roll hands, surfer hands..... road rage hands. So many possibilities.

    Re: [Sylphid] Super Posable Karate Hands

    Don't see a need for it. Everyone's trying to make their joints look more natural, or make them even less posable but more aestethic and now somebody makes very visible joints on on the the few parts of a figure that you can't cover up?
    Nah...not for me.
    Bendy Hands+Gloves or Molded hands are just fine thanks you.

    The response posted here is the same as on their boards as well.
    Mixed feelings. I for one love them. I prefer articulation.

    Was that Cote De Pablo in the Motorola ad?

    These would be perfect when molded as gloved hands - make the points of articulation look engineered into the glove make up.

    I agree, and it would be much easier to disguise the joints as part of the glove design.

    I like the look, but It seems like the volks neo hands had more articulation.

    Pretty cool, but not high on my priority of 1/6 wishlist items.

    I'd like to get a pair of those hands for at least one of my Bruce Lee figures.

    Re: [Sylphid] Super Posable Karate Hands

    Ideal for any figure that has to hold an object other than a gun. Warge's suggestion is great -- pose the hand exactly as you need it and, if the joints bug you, seal it. It appears to me that the joints have been blended into the folds of the knuckles pretty well. I'd buy some of these.

    Re: [Sylphid] Super Posable Karate Hands

    I'm always in favor of more articulation, and I think the joints on these blend quite well into the sculpt. Looking around, I don't see any figures on my shelves right now that I'd actually get much use out of them for, but maybe I'll pick up a Hot Toys Bruce like in the video, and maybe someone will start licensing some Kung Fu movies, and then these will really come in handy.

    Hopefully at some point soon enough this kind of articulation will come standard, at least as one option like with the HT Iron Man armors that come with both posed and articulated hands.

    Interesting,

    However, they could well be fragile. Best wait till some are in hand, if indeed they come out at all.

    CHEERS!

    Re: [Sylphid] Super Posable Karate Hands

    Nah not for me either, after a few years in the hobby I have enough spare sets of palms to cover pretty much any situation I desire. I imagine the fingers would become flimsy after a while. Plus I prefer to see as little articulation on show as possible.
