    two heads is always better.
    seeing that we didnt get a second head for buzz-off or clawful.
    no such luck.

    Leech BADLY needs an alternate head.

    But apparently one of the only reasons "compelling" enough to do an alternate head is to have one made of yourself.

    Yup ! Couldn't agree more...

    There needs to be an alternate (less goofy) head for Leech ASAP!

    *raises fist*

    Who's with me!?
    I'm with you, HordeMonkey ! But I don't think Matty will give a crap about what fans and customers want. It is sculpted and done, so... no second head.

    I would prefer a second head for Clawful over a second one for Leech.
    And the Buzz-Off head wàs sculpted and displayed but not included with the final figure.
    Maybe we just need to nag a bit longer for a head-pack ... who knows, Mattel might cave in eventually, since the 'too morbid' excuse is just plain silly for an adult collectors line that explicitly states "you must be 18 or older to purchase this product".

    The Staction vs the Now Head

    If Leech's head and neck were like The Staction, it might look better. Designers should have forgone some of the head articulation and designed the neck/hump back like The Staction. The head may have looked more naturally fitting.

    Also, the claw finger nails of The Staction looked better as those tpyes of fingernails would allow him to better to victims. Just a thought . . .

    Looking at the TNI pics helps a little. I'm wondering if the sculpt of the head will still allow Leech to look down. I'm thinking that may help even out the look of the proportions a little.

    What about fans who like the head as is?

    I love the head as is but I'm always for more display choices.

    You probably misunderstood what I meant... All I was saying is that it's really too bad there's no second head for Leech, because I personally don't like the current face.

    Getting a second head wouldn't be a problem for the fans who like this head, right ?

    That, and so he can suck on Rebel head...with his hands...like on the show.

    It's too bad he also doesn't come with human hands. In one episode he transformed them to the suckers.

    My thoughts...

    I really don't like how he turned out. He looks like a mutated alligator from something out of TMNT. The head is just too cartoony. Also, the body looks too big for the arms and legs, or they just look too small...you get my drift. Either way, I'm a bit disappointed with how he turned out.

    I think Leech looks pretty sweet, but frig Matty needs to stop cheaping out on alternate heads for characters who really need them.

    Ever looked at vintage Leech from the side? He DOES kinda look like a mutated alligator... And the MOTUC Leech just reflects that. I like it, but I'm sorry you're disappointed.

    Leech's head looks like Po Kong: Mountain Demon from "Jackie Chan Adventures" (the anime). I thought "hyper anime detail" was retired?

    I'm seeing a lot of critiques, at least from my interpretation, that he doesn't look like a real humanoid leech. He looks too crazy and not the right proportions of a giant leech with arms and legs.

    She looks like she could be Leech's mom.

    I know, but one can dream, right? :\

    Someone will have to find a way to cast the Leech staction head and shrink it down a bit to fit on a MOTUC figure... I'd buy one for sure!

    Well the vintage Leech didn't look like a giant leech at all and I never interpretated him as one. To me it's an amphibian swamp creature with some reptilian traits plus the ability to drain energy. He's just called Leech because of that ability.
    And his name for sure didn't indicate to me that he's a leech either when I was a kid, since the animal is called "Egel" or "Blutegel" in Germany.

    I really wish that there were 3rd party accessories and parts sold for MOTUC figures as there are for Transformers such as this

    If 3rd parties made modernized 200X inspired heads it would sure motivate me to buy several of the figures that I previously passed such as Roboto, Buzz-off and Grizzlor.

    Slippery slope. HasTak are (so far) notoriously lenient about that sort of thing, Mattel is not. Anyone trying to sell 3rd party accessories of Mattel IP would likely find themselves sued into bankrupcy by Mattel's extremely vigilant legal team.
