I was really busy the past weekend and didn’t manage to upload a post on time. I got stuck in a rut while working on the Sazabi and decided to start on something else while thinking about it. Despite the amount of work required to get these little things to look decent I still went ahead and got the Joker as I liked its design. Here’s a quick snapfit of the thing.
It’s from the first season of the anime and it has some issues, most of which are characteristic of the Strider Frame, the in-game name for this type of fast-hitting, lightly armoured character. The joints, especially those on the legs, are really loose. The legs themselves are prone to falling off the hip joints, which are also strangely designed, making it impossible to bring the legs together, or even spread them apart. I decided to rework the hip joints and improve the existing waist joint, but it took a bit of time before I could get everything fixed up and working, which I’ll post for the next WIP update.
