    Should the red of the UK comic Horde Prime head match the red of the body?

    I like that MOTUC Horde Prime has an alternate UK comic style head. But what I don’t like is that the red on that head doesn’t match the red on the body. I personally would prefer the UK comic style head to match the darker red of the rest of the figure. Thoughts?

    I agree; the darker red makes it match better!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    hadnt noticed, but now that you point it out yes, I think it would be appropriate and preferable.

    Mind you I have no intention of using the UK head, he will make a nice addition to my head rack. But I think the figure would benifit from matching.

    Perhaps in hand however it will be better that there is that difference. Make it stand out.

    I wish it weren't red at all. I'd much rather it be silver or the light green of the comic (at least I think it was light green).

    Too much red.

    Think of the horde display:

    Hordak - Red and black
    Catra - Red
    Shadow Weaver - lighter Red
    Mantenna - big red head
    Mosquitor - big red head
    Scorpia - red and black

    A little color variation is a good thing

    Though on second look the all orange change would look awesome!

    I wont be using the UK Horde Prime head, but it does look awesome. Could they do a variant with the purple and green (or whatever he wore) body the UK Horde Prime wore to use that 2nd head?

    i didn't notice this before (proabbly because i don't care for the 2nd head in this case), but i agree. if you're going to make a 2nd head, the colors should make the figure.

    I think it looks much better being a matching red colour.

    The Horde all having alot of red is what gives them a uniform feel like an army.

    Leave it as is. I like color contrasts, they make the figures more dynamic to look at, imo. I typically don't dig too much of the same.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    I'm sorry I didn't add an "other" option. I wasn't trying to exclude you. It just slipped my mind.

    I'd prefer silver over green. But I'd even prefer green over the existing color. I think having a head that's a similar color but different shade is more distracting than an entirely different color.

    The UK comic head seems off, maybe it should be red.

    Since the face on the Horde emblem is apparently Horde Prime's face, I would just keep the red Hordak head on Prime. I could care less for the UK fish head. So I just say leave it as it is.

    I definitely think the matching reds look better, the but the orange helmet doesn't look terrible.
