    Amazing toy, and I've been messing with it ever since I took it out of the box, but I noticed something:

    Still don't see it? Closer look:

    One of the legs is shiny black plastic, the other is matte. wtf, how does that happen?

    Mine is still in the box and I can see that it suffers from the same thing...

    I think mine has it too. Not that it bothers me.

    Yeah, it doesn't bother me, but I just find it odd. If everyone's has this, that must mean it was done intentionally, right?

    I just noticed my Prowl kinda has the same thing going on too. It actually looks like the matte plastic on one shoulder wore down due to my sweat or something.

    Oh well, if it becomes that big of a problem for me (which it won't) I'll just go buy an extra one at SDCC for half-price.
