    Is Jitsu supposed to have black on his head?

    Got Jitsu today. Opened him up to find black on this head. Maybe I should take a picture.
    It not his hair... its on his bald area.
    Anyone else have this? Is it a paint app error? Or is it supposed to be like...stubble or something?

    Okay I just took some pictures. But with the lighting it's not showing up as well or rather as obvious as it does in real life.
    In other words it looks worse in person.


    UPDATE:
    So it seems the general consensus seems to be that this...black blotch...was intentional, and supposed to be "stubble"... Im not sure why they thought that necessary...but whatever. Some people like this extra detail. I am normally all for extra detail. (Oh, excuse me..."hyper detail" I guess is the term for extra details. hehe. Teasing, teasing) I am just not crazy about this particular one. I thought it was a paint app error...as that's what it looks like on mine anyway.

    I just feel it would have been better off without this particular detail. At least mine would have... its very inconsistent on the top of his head, and it even comes down on his forehead... So he shaves his forehead???

    Its NOT "nit-picking"...I have never seen stubble on a persons forehead... have you??? It is immature to call this nit-picking. I still love the figure. People have a right to like something or not. Let's not be jerks about each other's tastes. Really. Be nice!
    It's not like we are saying the figure sucks or something. And I didn't personally notice the "small head" so that doesnt bother me personally. But it's not nit-picking if it does.

    My personal preference would be that they had not done this though. The figure is awesome...but for me, this does detract from it.
    On mine it just looks like a bad paint flaw.
    Maybe the guys that are liking it have better apps or something (and that's cool), because I find it hard to believe they are supposed to look like mine does.

    Just checked mine. He has a very light black wash on the top of his head where it is bald. It's not dark black or a black mark though.

    My Ram Man had a black mark on his right bicep but I was able to get it off with some water and light rubbing. Hope this helps.

    A picture would be best to determine this I think.

    I got my Jitsu today and though I'm not having this issue, I did notice his gold glove did not have the paint apps applied to the 4 dots, I believe it was suppose to be green color paint apps applied here?

    Can you post a photo?
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I have a similar dark brown wash on his head. I presumed that it was meant to mimic stubble from a shaved head.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    Wow. Considering all of the cool paint apps that have been dropped, but they ADD this crap to the "classized" Jitsu!?

    Mine has it too but its not that noticeable. Its a brownish faded wash which doesn't bother me at all. In typical fashion, first comes the excitement and the positive comments in the arrival thread then comes the nit-picking and the groans days later, "just like you don't remember!"

    Can't believe they ruined Jitsu and it only took a week to notice.

    I noticed it on both my Jitsus today and I agree with those that say that it looks terrible. I really or look like a bad paint job. It was the first thing I noticed out of the package.

    It's a callous that developed after years of head butting fools. He needs it so he can deflect an incoming attack with his hand and counted attack quickly. Come on, dudes. Use your logic.

    If you really don't like it, look up Kevin Kosse on Facebook. He's got your back. Er, head.

    I haven't opened mine yet, but from what I can see through the package it looks pretty subtle.
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...

    Most of us haven't got him yet, so not even a fair comment.

    Meh a small nitpick IMO I didn't even notice it until I opened this thread. I think it's meant to represent stubble. Not at all a disaster like Roboto, King Hiss, Goddess, Stinkor(that one still hurts), Blastic, etc.

    Vikor... Since you are still fairly new here - SCB is the Heroic Master of Sarcasm, although he has changed it to Maturity lately, but he's still pretty sarcastic

    Me either, I don't believe it ruins the figure. But I don't think it takes anything away from this really awesome figure.

    I opened the figure yesterday and my first thought was, "Oh, cool. They shaded his bald spot to make it look like he shaves it."

    I've seen 3 in person. They all have it. I assumed it was their attempt at a stubble effect as well. It's annoying but I'm more annoyed by Jitsu's tiny head. It barely fits the neck. Compare it to He-man's head. It's way too small.
