    I voted clean... unless they could do a gradiation of one color into the other, literally 'blending' the two characters into the one.

    Not that it matters, frakin' Two-Bad is a comin!!!!!!

    Not a huge issue for me.

    I did choose the clean Filmation style version. I think the MYP version was also clean as well.

    embarrising enough, I just voted (and usually vote this way) for Goatman to stay accurate to the illustration.

    But with 2 bad, I want it as is.

    I know, I know I usually want vintage first, or whatever is more accurate.

    But really, he's been clean split before. So it's not that big a deal.

    But really I think it's because my obsession with Two Face. I credit Two Bad with starting me on the path of obsession with Two Face, but an even split just makes me happy, looks so nice.

    Dripping would have been cooler i think.

    Same here. Still, either one'll be fine with me- ultimately, the sculpt is what I'm after!

    I much prefer them dripping into eachother as if they really have been fused together. I'm disappointed it is such a clean line down the middle on the new toy. Kind of a boring way to do it. Having the two sides oozing onto each other seems more realistic if two beings were joined together. I's little imperfections like that which make the character seem more realistic to me rather than a painted piece of plastic.

    Where were all of you people who have been voting for the drip before the figure went into production?!? We could have used your help!! As it is, the clean sep folks are still barely winning, so it seems the majority is still happy.

    Yeah I agree with this, the dripping looks much cooler, the clean line looks weirdly unnatural. At least have the colours mixing on the stomach like the vintage even if the purple doesn't make it over to the blue leg.

    I always thought the dripping looked bad so had they done the Classics Two Bad any differently, I would have opted for a slightly uneven fading between the two. I'm very happy the sideways dripping effect has been dropped.

    I would have preferred the merging version.

    Won't work together?
    Don't like each other?
    *ZOT!*
    Too bad.



    Sorry... couldn't help myself. The 2003 version won me over. Yes, Skeletor's no world-class surgeon, but he does score points in the "mean and spiteful" category. I like the 'clean split' look, but marvel more at how Skeletor fused their insides... one eats, the other burps... one head sleeps on guard duty, while the other stays awake (albeit sleepy).
