    Suction cups or gripping hands 4 Leech?

    Looking at the 4H's reinterpretation of Grizzlor's paws, have made me think about Leech.

    The vintage Leech toy had semi-useless hands thanks to the suction cup feature. The staction had an awesome update on the suction cups, with the grusome tongue and claws. And then there was the gripping hand look off the mini-comic:


    How would fans like the 4H to tackle Leech's hands in MOTUC?

    i voted "other".
    i'd like them to be removable (like roboto), and two sets of hands: gripping hands to wield weapons and staction ones to represent the suction action.

    Sorry that I didn't think of a specific choice for swappable hands. Because that has not been a feature of the MOTUC figures it never even occurred to me.

    But wouldn't the staction hands without tongues just be an Anime Hyper Detail version of the vintage suction cup hands?

    you might be right, at least in Matty's eyes. I hope we can get something inbetween .

    Other-I'd like swappable parts. Suction cups and hands to hold weapons. If that can't happen, then I'd like to see the suction cup-like hands be able to hold weapons. Is that too much to ask?

    Interchangable hands ala Roboto. We know it's possible, so why not do both suction cup-like hands and hands that could grip weapons? I just hope Leech gets the proper proportions...we was a big-stocky character in the vintage line.

    While I would honestly be happy with simple suction cup hands like the Vintage toy, I would love to see interchangeable hands. His crossbow should attach on his wrist, though, as it always has before.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I'd like to see the suction hands be able to bend into shape or just have removable hands. One with the round suction hands & the other without but not like the ones in that mini comic above. like frog hands.

    Its interesting. I had thought the Leech hands in the mini-comic had webbed fingers, just that it couldn't be seen on the cover illustration due to gripping the weapon.

    However, the pics inside show the artist alternated between fingered hands (without webbing) and suction cup round hands:

    Leech has always been one of my favorites so it took me a while to finally choose an option. I chose other. I would like swappable hands.
    The staction design is awesome, the suction cup hands never worked really well, and Leech doesn't really need to hold a weapon because he is a weapon. But I think that his main (if not only) hands should be like the staction (with or without tongues) and swappable with either the suction cup hands (just to be vintage & they make grabbing the other figures easier) or gripping hands so he can hold his (Horde signature) crossbow. Guess my preference is 1) staction hands 2) suction cups 3) gripping hands.

    Other. I think alternate sets of hands would be the best.
