    So much goodness coming our way - I agree, really pumped for Strobo and of course Snake Face looks amazing even in the wrong colours.

    Snake Face does look BA, and I'm glad to see Mer-Man is wearing the same brand of underwear that I wore as a kid. HAHA.

    I just wanted to call attention that Ram mans torso is assembled backwards. I don't want this to end up a final QC defect on production figures.

    Ram Man looks like a giant M.U.S.C.L.E. figure!

    Anyone notice that Strobo has got some new shorts (possibly a brand new sculpt?), rather than the ones he had on the prototype?

    It looks like these ones were changed to effectively cover his "strobos" this time to keep him more family friendly!

    (EDIT - They are re-used from Syklone)

    There was another proto before this one that was correctly assembled, I wouldn't worry.

    I liked using the Flipshot shorts for Strobo versus the Sy-Klone ones. I hope it's the Flipshot ones for the final piece, personally.

    Me too since the Flipshot shorts look closer to the original art. Even though these parts are all supposed to be interchangeable, I wonder if it is still cheaper for them to use parts from less figures. Maybe it was cheaper for them to use Sy-Klone's shorts rather than Flipshot's shorts since they were already using so many other Sy-Klone parts. If so, I'm upset they destroyed the aesthetics of yet another figure due to cutting corners.

    It certainly would be cheaper if Sy-Klone's shorts are in the same mold as his shins that they are using. Which completely makes sense and, judging by the color of plastic used to cast those pieces, looks like they are.

    Nice catch!
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    I thought that too VB, but aren't the shorts piece made out of a different plastic then the shins? normally a good bit softer

    cant use 2 different plastics at the same time in a mold, right?

    Yes Ram-Man is coming completely wrong because some sketchy factory worker snuck him out to sell on eBay illegally and did not put him together right

    Due to the thickness of the shins, I don't think it matters. Most MOTUC shorts and limbs are made of PVC so they are the same material, just a different thickness. If the shorts were something way rubbery like kraton, then that would be an issue for the shins, but they have not used that material in anything MOTU thus far, unless I am mistaken.

    Lately some forelimbs and shins have been softer in MOTUC figures, but that is probably to help compensate for more flexible shorts in the same mold.

    To me the Flipshot shorts look weird due to the bare skin of his limbs. The part of the joint that is visible between the crotch and the leg is just plain creepy. I like the Sy-Klone shorts better if only for this reason.

    I dont think so, this is probably what he looks like without his armor/clothing on On a side note--I see his buck being used on other figures like Extendar

    Thanks, I missed the reviews of the final production piece.
    Just wary of every release having a defect these days.

    I agree on the change also because of the weird look with the Flipshot shorts.

    I like the look of the Flipshot shorts but if they don't cover his "strobos" I'll be fine with the Sy-clone shorts.
