    Show your appreciation for Leech!

    Hey guys as I already said on the official Leech's thread I got an answer on FB from the Four Horsemen about him neck:

    You're seeing it from a bad angle in that photo, but we had to do the neck area the way we did so it wouldn't.
    Hinder movement of the head. Also, it looks as if they may not have the head pushed all the way down on that prototype, so the neck articulation's not in place yet.
    The head you see there is currently just attached with a chunk of clay shaped similar to a rod so it can remain somewhat posable for photography or display.

    -FH-
    So I don't want to keep debating about Leech, it's more about showing our appreciation to the FH's awesome job because many of us may have misjudged Leech.
    In the future, maybe Mattel's people should try to use more care and attention when posing these porototype for display, to avoid this kind of issues. Just take you time when posign them!
    Thanks

    I think Leech looks much better with his head properly positioned as well. I thought it was the head scale initially, but looking at it close it does seem to the the head position that was bugging me.

    I made the mention in another thread, but I think if the 4H and Mattel can swing it that it may make sense to have one of the 4H present for their Appreciation Tours during the cons. That way not only can they double check the assembly and positioning of the protos, but they can also answer questions and give insight into the sculpts.

    Mantenna was always MY Hordesmen, but I must admit Leech, who I have little attachment to, BLEW ME AWAY. No doubt about it.

    I love Leech's head. I don't see why so many people are complaining. The figure is great!

    I liked the look of Leech from the moment I saw him and also don't understand all the complaints. The 4H have done a fantastic job on him

    As the leading scumbag around these parts allow me to offer my praises for the upcoming Leech MOTUC figure. He will be a most welcome addition to the growing army of villainous evil. Way to go, Alessandra! I knew you were an appreciator of evil. Keep it up!

    I think Leech looks great! Very exciting!
    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

    He's dope. I think the 4H always have a challenge of re-inturpreting action features. They did'nt fall short on this one. Good job.

    I saw Leech in person, and he kept drawing me back to the Mattel booth over the weekend at WonderCon. I think he looks AMAZING! i can't wait to have him in my collection - especially since Leech was in the opening credits for She-Ra! We bascially got to see him every episode!
