Yes Eddie, it does have a problem with the shield :(
The shield is attached to the arm via a single point connection. If the
beam hawk is attached to the shield, that makes the bottom half of the
shield heavier than the top. The shield will then turn by itself so that
the bottom points straight down instead of sideways even if you pose it so.
Not good.
