Design discussed as a team and found that you could swap the gloves to create a slightly different look. They wanted to give Stinkor something extra since he is basically Mer-Man’s head on Beastman’s body and Mekaneck’s armor (even though we haven’t done Mek yet but you know what I mean!~). Much like painting Sorceress’ wings blue this was one way of making the toy pop a bit and be different on shelf. For reference, we also did this on BG Evil Lynn to much success!"

    So official word from Mattel is that this was intentional.

Mattel's design team isn't familiar with anatomy?

    Wow. THIS comparison pic is worth 1000+ words. I can totally see yet another MAJOR DESIGN/AESTHETIC ERROR!

    He really does look all kinds of... backwards.

    This lack of QUALITY CONTROL in this line is getting depressing. (Sorry Four Horsemen, all your care in design and attention to detail, just thrown out the window... )
    – No comment.

    It was its the fact Stinkor comes with so many extra parts that we lost the paint apps
