Exactly. I'll be honest, I would have never once noticed the shoulder thing if it wasn't pointed out. That doesn't mean it should happen, but I never sat and analyzed shoulders before to realize that the ripples should be on the other side or whatever. Fat armor sucks, no doubt - but it's more of a (bad) creative choice, or could be. This appears, as you say, to be downright defective. That's a whole other ballgame.

That no one stood up and said, "Wait a minute, we can't send this out to production in this state" is absolutely stunning, even for Mattel and the continued reduction in quality we have been seeing.

Looking at the images of Rio Blast, from SDCC, on the fwoosh, it almost appears that his chest flap is much more flush with his chest, than on some of the other pictures we have seen. Is this simply because of the angle which the pictures were taken, or is this chest flap more closed?
What do you guys think..?

Heroic Evil Warrior!
I gotta say… RIO for the WIN!
He just might become my new favorite MOTUC figure.
Sooo good Horsemen, LOVE that new hairdo too!

Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe a little silver sharpie to disguise it when the flap is open.

They stated outright in the review it was an issue, it wasn't just something from the pics.

They very well may be using a prototype for SDCC, or may have modified it before showing it. I have a feeling that the Fwoosh pictures are representative of what we will get in our mailboxes.
Hope not, but I think it's the safe bet.

I always thought his was a failed Bravestar character that some how was past off from the Flimation production. Just image, if the He-man line had lasted until 1989, we would have a turtle ninja figure.
