Woah - I didn't notice it until I saw that picture but....is Leech wearing a TUBE TOP!!??!
Just for the record, despite his resemblence to Count Duckula, I don't think Leech looks too bad. I'll concede that he could be more sinister looking, but I still think he looks pretty good. Clawful, on the other hand, still looks like Animal on steroids.

The Power And Honor Foundation just posted something in their catalogue thread that shows that the idea of Horde members being "controlled" is something that dates back to the very conceptualization of the Horde! So it goes to show that ToyGuru really isn't just making up crap to astound long-time fans of MOTU, he's culling information from all over the place and including it in Classics
I found that really interesting when I read the Power and Honor pages!

Heretical Vintage Purist and Non-Fan Extraordinaire!
That's how I see it.
When you look at the vintage figure's head from the side, it looks just like the MOTUC head. It has the red eyes, teeth, ears, everything the vintage figure had except the suction cup.
You could even say the head is just a Classics version of the staction head. It looks just like but w/o the hyper anime.
I'm more upset that the 4H went with the cardback design on the armor instead of the one-piece that the figure and staction had. It does look like he's wearing a sports bra.
And the top is there on the Vintage figure, its just not painted separately!
THE LINK BELOW IS THE TIME THE NEXT MOTUC FIGURE GO'S ON SALE!
Sorry to say so, but I must admit MOTUC Leech's head really disappointed me. As far as this figure is concerned, I truly prefer the more menacing 200x head. This vintage inspired head looks too cartoony to me, and I think that the 80s head even looks better than this MOTUC face !
One big fail, if you ask me. I'll probably buy Leech because he is one of the important Horde figures, but if Mattel keeps dishing out figures that don't look good like this one (at least, this is my opinion), I won't be there to buy them.
Leech prototype is already available on ebay, from china of course!
i just wish his mouth was more "leech" like rather than alligator-like.
