    Some people have more than one. It might do to have people specify how many they bought. I only have one and it is wrong. Not sure if it's 2 right legs or left, so I just put left.

    how do you if the legs are both right or left? my SWs calves are both the same, but i don't know which one is the correct right/left since i have nothing to compare with. mine looks like the first Incorrect pic.

    also, it sounds like it's possible for someone to have the legs switched (right on left, vice versa), but if they only have one horse, how would they know?

    eta: i voted for the first wrong one since i don't know which is the correct left/right.

    I voted other. From what I can tell I have two separate legs, but Swifty's right lower front leg leans significantly in towards the left leg and will barely bend at the knee joint. I feel like the joint is going to tear if I push any harder on it.

    My Swiftwind has all the correct parts as they should be,
    but the right leg is a little longer than the left.
    He also has a tendency to fall to the left because that leg is a bit inward.
    The joints appear to be fragile, so I won't move them much.

    Even with these flaws he is one awesome sight to behold!

    The only real problem I can see in a couple of years is the yellowing of the white plastic. It's a matter of when vs if. When it happens, many Swift Winds could take a Hydrogen Peroxide bath to turn white again.

    I'm going to go out and make an educated guess based on the stats we're seeing so far. As of right now, the vote is basically 50/50 for correct vs double front legs. My thinking is that the Swiftwind figures were being assembled incorrectly, Mattel caught the problem and fixed it. A "running change" kind of like the flocked ears and non-flocked ears Moss-Man. So, in the end the double legs will be a fairly small, but significant number of the overall figures (like flocked ears Moss-Man).

    I hope that's not the case...but my gut is telling me something exactly like this happened.

    Also, for everyone that votes OTHER, please state that you voted OTHER in your post. It makes things easier for Mattel to track if they see our poll!

    like in the joint of the calve? i can see some lettering in there, but it's too small for me to make out.

    /shrug. either way, mine are wrong.

    i do wonder if anyone has the legs switched. it'd look like they have two different legs and thus correct, but they may not be. i'm looking at those who are saying one leg is longer or the horse tilts.

    I have two lefties... my Snout Spout has serious paint flaws and my Swiftwind has two left legs. I am so ****** off that there are no words for it. I'm calling Digital River and I'm going to ***** until I get satisfaction. Now, come on. I know they're only toys, but this is money I'm basically throwing at them, and we have to take what they give us. This gives me SERIOUS pause for thought as to the continuation of a 2013 sub. I'm already locked in for 2012, but I'm JUST at the point where I've had it, and I will complain and complain until I get satisfaction. Maybe if we call and complain they'll do more to make sure they're right the first time!!!!

    I voted that mine has two left legs, but upon closer inspection and comparison to your pictures, I realize that I actually have TWO RIGHT LEGS. And I will be calling customer service... again.

    I'm guessing mine are correct. If they are wrong, I can not tell from looking at 'em.

    Mine aren't assembled correctly. Two left legs, and some sloppy paint apps on the neck.

    The legs on my Swiftwind are correct. I had a bit problem to put his left wing in the socket but it is ok now.
