I got Draego Man today and he is amazing. My second favorite MOTUC figure this year after Fisto. So much new sculpting and great detail. Fantastic job 4H!! :D

Still waiting for mine. At least it finally got to Phoenix.

I'll probably have it tomorrow.

I don't understand how closely and intently you have to be staring at these figures to see something like this.

Normal people shouldn't care.

Go outside!

Can someone explain the reverse shoulders on Roboto and King Hiss, and the Stinkor forearms?

I've looked at the figures and I really don't see anything. Am I blind?

and if I say something doesnt bother me, ie shoulders, stinkor's forearms, im lying and I just want to side with TG/Matty.

Im sorry I have a crap ton of amazing MOTUC figures

I'm going to start by saying that it doesn't bother me, either, I'm more bothered by the fact that my Swiftwind was actually assembled wrong and has two left (I think it's left) forelegs than any of the ones you've mentioned...

Roboto: Factory tooled shoulders wrong so that they are, in fact, on the wrong side. There is no issue with functionality on the Roboto shoulders, but you can see it as the wiring on the shoulders doesn't line up properly with the wiring on the bicep pieces.

King Hssss: Same issue with the shoulders. I can't really see how anyone can tell visually, but there is a bit of a function issue where the bicep piece does come into contect with the scales when that articulation point is turned. It may cause paint/plastic wear.

Stinkor: I haven't looked at the pics myself since this "news" came to light so I don't know how "bad" this may actually look. Apparently Mattel "decided" to intentionally reverse the lower arms in order to give the figure a bit more of a distinct visual and not look so much like the other figures that have used the same forearms.

I think the more troublesome issue is the Four Horsemen looked at it and said *paraphrasing* "yea, we didn't do that"

:lol: Heeheee....yeah, I can see how people examining their figures for flaws and then writing about them can be annoying. I think it's the result of people's passion for the MOTU line in general, coupled with the fact that they're paying 20+ dollars per figure.

The Swiftwind thing bothered me because it affected how well he could stand. And like I just said, when you're paying 30+ dollars for a beast like him, you want it to be good. Don't we all go into stores and look for the figures with the best paint and the least warped plastic before bringing them to the checkout? Well, MOTUC customers don't have that option, so it increases their scrutiny.

Stinkor has reversed, non interchangeable arms. It's not a matter of looking too hard, it's a matter of basic anatomy.
