    Man-At-Arms boot/loin cloth color preference: card art or original toy?

    The dark green/gray/black/brown boots and loin cloth actually bummed me out. Iím just not digging it. I hope we get a red version later on. Thoughts?

    Can't vote in this poll…there's no option for the way the classics figure has been done: dark brown fuzzy shorts with dark brown and dark green boots. Looks perfect that way to me. I'm glad that's the way the figure is coming!

    Going by the pictures I see on Toynewsi, I donít see any brown at all. It looks all dark green to me. Are there pictures posted elsewhere that show him with brown boots and loin cloth?

    The loincloth and boots are dark brown and the boots have green straps similar to the dark brown ones on he man`s boots.

    Exactly. You need to re-calibrate your monitor Faker II.

    The dark brown on the boots and loincloth are the same dark brown that's around the arm openings on his armor.

    I think the fur is just black and the straps are dark green. I can't really see any significant color in fur. Anyway I prefer the dark black/brown to the red for this figure because I always loved the way it looked on the cardback art. It would be great if he was rereleased with red down the line though.

    I copied the pictures from toynewsi and zoomed in on them in Adobe Photoshop. I didnít see any brown, but I saw a lot of gray. While the boots were mostly gray (except the straps), I did see green pixels. The loin cloth, although mostly gray, had a distinctly noticeable amount of green in it. It looks like a green wash over gray plastic.

    Everything that is supposed to look brown on my monitor is brown. I even checked with images of 200X He-Man whose boots and loin cloth are dark brown. I didnít see a spec of green in them like I saw mixed in with the dark gray of Man At Arms. I guess I can have my wife look at our monitor as sheís the computer expert in my house.

    Anyway, this is still how Iíd prefer Man At Arms to lookÖ
