    he has had that human torso from the beginning, its just been hard to see. If you look at pics of him you can see a belly button on all the pics of him at all the shows, Rattlor does not have a belly button

    I just checked my SLL, and aside from trying to scrape some off it looks like blue plastic. It doesn't look anything like Spikor or Vykron.

    I hope Dan starts checking for this in his reviews, he could even scrape the plastic as it a free figure and he has his own subs.

    Yeah, if you look close enough you can tell if it's painted or not, you can tell on Spikor easily that most of him is, the paint is thicker in places, and looks gloopy in others.

    Best way to tell, is get a black light, that will tell you exactly which parts on a figure are painted, or even slightly different shades. I don't have one at the moment, but I did a while back
    and the results as interesting to see. Paint, even correctly color matched hard to spot by eye will glow a different shade than molded plastic.

    On the images we've seen so far, to me it looks as if his forearms were cast in orange.

    Aww come on lol!! I still like him. I just hope the paint doesn't chip in the knees like on my Spikor.



    EDIT: WAIT A SECOND...

    NOTICE: his joint pieces are all in blue.. the color, sort of, of the main paint color...

    Is that because of Spikor's paint problems?? If so, that means that these figures take a VERY short time to make and the whole "We need months and months to implement a change" like is not true...

    I would bet that it's not a change due to our complaints but I am glad to see it.

    I think most people would be surprised to see how many times we've gotten painted parts in the past. I just took apart a He-Ro this weekend and learned his ankle pegs were cast in flesh tone and only the caps were painted gold to match his boots. However, the ankle caps don't see any wear from movement, and in that particular design, they aren't that visible to begin with.

    They can't use the Rattlor torso because it got the tail!
    However I think that the Clawful/Whiplash/Buzz Off is far better... I don't know what they don't used it!

    Cy-Chop like the Snake Man before him, looks to be the final figure, just unpainted, so with those two, you can see their mentality under the paint, it's all black non color molded garbage.

    The connectors (pins & shoulders) are molded in color even on Spikor, it's the actual limbs that need to be molded instead of painted, the knees are the worst because of the ratchet points, at least the shoulders and calves should be molded instead of painted, but realistically, none of it should be painted at all, except as before with a new piece.

    But it looks as if there is no end to the ****** black plastic painted figures, even if they addressed it now, the rest of 2012 will likely be painted crap, and that is unacceptable.

    Oh duh. It was late lol. I was thinking that knee joint was separate lol. You'd think by now I'd not have made that error lol

    Darn, more painted black plastic.

    I must say, the black suits him rather well. For some reason it seems like it brings out the details of the sculpt more.

    SO you tell us all about how expensive he is to deco... yet mold him in black plastic so that hard work on the expensive deco will chip away. Awesome. Listen, Scott can say whatever he wants but they've been using cheaper plastic for a while now. The legs on my Griffin are like rubber - they aren't like that on Battle Cat. Same mold, garbage plastic. Mattel could have had a line that rivaled Palisades Muppets for the care, quality and detail that went into every figure.. but then they got cheap, made stupid upper management calls and this is how the line will go out. Lower quality, chipping paint and mangled "design choices".

    Say good bye to those details once it is covered in sloppy paint.

    That is until all the sloppy paint peels, chips and rubs off, then you will have what is shown in the picture....
