    Love him!
    I noticed he has white disc shoulders, he looks a little odd with the arms raised but who cares? He's just perfect, I'm much more attached to vintage head but I admit that the 200x head looks cool, maybe a little strange without the gas mask, I don't know.. Right now the only figure that has received the '200x head upgrade' on my shelf was Moss-man (Mer-man doesn't count, I have three of him )

    Great review Dan. I'm loving the modern head and back pack, just wish it had a few more paint details, like white on the dials.

    *sigh* I don't even know why I'm bringing this up...'cause people are gona freak, like usual. But if you look at the proto on page 2 and then take a look at your Skeletor (or anyone with the pronged forearms) you'll see that Stinkor's forearms are swapped - left for right and right for left. I thought they were just molded with the prongs inward, since these are new forearms, but when you take a look at the Fwoosh review (specifically at this picture) and hold up your Skeletor's left arm in that exact position, you can see that Stinkor's right forearm is clearly his left.

    'Course his arms obviously still work the same or else someone would have noticed by now. Still, when you compare the arms in the pics to your own figures in hand, it's pretty clear that they're swapped.

    might be the first figure I do a little painting on, well the accessories, getting them metallic is easy enough, Tamiya makes some nice ones.

    Unless the same issue is noticed in the video review, I wouldn't raise too many alarms yet. The prototype being an earlier model means it may have been caught and fixed before mass production.

    They are new for arms because of the furry Beast Man body. Fur detail has been added above the fins. But you are right the fin is angled inward rather then outward like Skeletor. I wonder if that was a design choice like Teela's bracers.

    On the contrary! Considering we have QC issues like this with every figure, We should address this to allow plenty of time to correct it if possible. TOYGURU.... where are you??? I know your out there.

    Unbelievable that when an opportunity arrises to fix a problem, people are just like, "that's okay... just leave it the way it is --- I'll take anything you give me." And you all wonder why I'm the way I am.

    Is there a forearm cut there where the glove meets the fur? It certainly looks like it in that picture...

    I didn't get the impression that the forearms were at all backwards. I'll take a closer look tonight when I get home.

    Stinkor comes out next month... even if this is a mistake (nobody knows at this point if it is or isn't) the figures are probably already assembled and being packaged to get here in time for May's sale. And if this is the design choice made, then there is nothing to correct.

    Good point; better just to check. Not backwards though; just switched. Right for left and left for right. When I hold up my Skeletor's left arm to the pic above (looking at the inner part of his arm) the contours line up perfectly. The inner part of Skeletor's left arm is curved inward, and it looks like the outer part of Stinkor's right arm is also curved inward, making it his left.

    I thought the same thing at first, but in one of the Fwoosh pictures it looks like there is a bit of paint that got onto the white part of the forearm so I think it's all one piece. Plus Pixel Dan didn't mention a forearm cut.

    I figured that would be the case. I might to a little paint touch up on my Stinkor accessories, the metallic blue on the prototype really added to the look for figure.

    Yeah, it makes sense. I do miss the highlights... but... I'm glad they made the decision that they did.

    Yay stinkor! You reminded me of the great days of sniffing figures... *ahem*

    Also, to Pixel Dan, way to go dealing with that lousy troll! Good ol' internet trolls.

    I assume you're talking about that dude on YouTube this morning? Yeah, it's common. There's always going to be some random guy on Youtube who tries to play the "You're a nerd!" card...like that's going to hurt my feelings.

    I love that stuff. It's like, dude you're watching a video review of a toy! Isn't it all a given that we're all sort of nerdy and geeky on some level?

    Stinkor is perfect. He's evil, he smells and he has a ton of accessories. Personally I could do without the 200X stuff as it makes no particular sense to me but I'm glad for the people that do want it.

    And Pickles Dan...you did it again. Those heroic emblem shirts mock the Evil Warriors. I understand you probably did these all in a row so I will forgive you...this time. But next time I may not be so forgiving...

    Typical responce to the blue paint on the accessories question... basically he's saying "your lucky your getting these accessories, now you want them painted too?"

    They should have cut the accessories altogether.
