They provide a great range of motion for things like hip joints. Unfortunately, they do not provide friction. I had to cheat by putting some plastic wrap inside the joint holding the gun. This works, though purists may scoff.

Honestly, these didn't work as well as I'd hoped, not providing much friction, so any time you move it you have to readjust stuff. If the legs look impossible, realize that they have light saber blades at their core.

Wordman wrote:Actually might look even better with the slightly smaller version of those feet. The pointed toes would work great in the orientation of your model.
Wordman wrote:Last, I really didn't mean to make a Marauder (or whatever the cool kids call it). I really didn't. Much less a chibi version of one. That's what I ended up with, though. Same foot part as the previous frame, with some better use of the big ball socket.
