The problem is that the cape ends up hitting studs behind the legs. This makes it difficult to display such Minifigures on wide plates. An easy solution is to add a 2×1 plate to elevate the Minifigure, but that will make them look taller. Another solution is to have tiles behind them instead of studs.
I think other brands have created similar capes, but are shaped in a way that they don’t end up blocking studs behind. This is something I hope more brands do!
This isn’t really a complaint though, since I still appreciate what XINH has done with this Starfox Minifigure. Hard-plastic capes look better in many instances, and it’s always easy to replace these with cloth capes in cases that you prefer them.
What are your thoughts on hard-plastic capes?
