    I'm sorry, but that's absolutely disgusting of Mattel! Spending money to make new molds of Roboto and King Hiss's shoulders so they can be assembled correctly in the future = AWESOME. Spending money to make new molds of ALREADY correct parts to assemble them INCORRECTLY = sheer lunacy!

    In this year where we are loosing accessories and paint apps due to cost, they spent the precious budget to **** up Stinkor's arms?!

    That money could have gotten us Horde Prime's staff and Draego-Man's shield. Two pieces left and right = two accessories. *slow clap for Mattel Design's decision there*

    Someone needs to ask about that in a Q&A: Why was it necessary to make new molds for already existing parts at the expensive of loosing accessories with other figures?

    Slayor, your swap/repaint job looks very good!

    Alright, then I have to apologize for calling Scott a liar a few weeks ago (well, in regards to this particular issue at least).

    So if they ever reuse these newly sculpted forearms on future figures they'll also be reversed, that's disappointing. I still don't understand this decision, I really wish Mattel design would enforce whatever safety standards are required by law and then get out of the way. MOTUC by the 4H is what I'm here for, Mattel designs aesthetic input isn't necessary or desired.

    Not that it matters, but Toyguru promised to never take liberties with the Horsemen's designs again.

    So if it wasn't a factory mistake it was clearly a design team's mistake. But as I said before a mistake is still a mistake, and to realize that just look at Slayor's pictures. Now that's the correct look for Stinkor! He looks awesome that way.

    SCB: Where have you seen that? I'd sure like to read it myself. Thanks!

    Darkspecter that is a great point. I would rather have had the money used for the forearms go to the missing paint apps on his accessories or for any of the missing accessories from other figures. No matter how you look at it switching the forearms to give Stinkor something different was a mistake on Mattel's part.

    So I received my figures, and noticed that the tentacles do not stay on slush head. No matter what I do they keep falling off. Anyone else have this problem as well?

    Here's the quote I was referring to. I guess it's my own interpretation, but that's what I got from it. No more reversed parts on purpose.

But much as we heard your feedback after the peg and hole She-Ra mask feature, we try not to repeat concepts fans and customers don't like. So got it. Loud and clear, you would have preferred the gloves were not attached in a unique way. I have passed these comments along to the design team so they are up to speed with reaction and interest.

    Oh no! I was afraid of that! That was the same problem the vintage figure had.

    I had the same problem when I first got Slush Head. You have to play around with it. Make sure you are inserting them the way they fit. There will be a CLICK sound. Try it.

    They stay in on mine perfectly, but you need to shove them and snap them into place.

    Yeah they did that on purpose so the smell would be more potent upon opening him.

    I got an e-mail saying mine shipped out today, so I will probably get them in June. The only thing I don't like about this line is the wait for the figures each month.

    The forearms are new parts, they are hairy above the gloves, we never had those before, but they never should have been messed with, but I don't see why they would be reversed if used again, they are still a right and left, just swapped on Stinkor.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Stinkor looks so much better with the corrected arms. This has bothered me more than the swapped shoulders. It's far more noticeable.

    Scott was right then.

    I guess A LOT of people owe him an apology.

    The forearms on Stinkor are new parts due to the fuzzy arms. The money was going to be spent no matter what. Reversing the forearms didn't cost the line any "new" money.

    Mattel could have saved money and used the Skeletor forearms on Stinkor but, at least IMO, that would have been stupid.
