    It takes a certain red and green balance to work together. That's not it.

    I think you're right. He looks like the Joker. It's simpler without the green. Plus the purple is a unifying color scheme across all 3 toys anyways.

    How bout now?

    I probably will, just for shrins and giggles. But as I said in the BW thread, I really want to work with what FP is using, because as it stands, THIS is what we're getting, and I don't like that. I don't want 100% pure toy colors, but these things are so damned red that they literally give me a headache.

    Ideally I would like something that homages the original toys, while tying everything together. The purple was a shared color on Tripredacus, and it ties into Tarantulas as well. The black on all the figures holds to Ravage. As it stands, you've got a red dude with red arms on a black leg and purple leg. I'm just trying to give each character some individuality while allowing the entire team a sense of over-all community.

    I like the toy colors, but that's not happening. So instead I'm trying for a subtle compromise, with the end goal of not making me physically ill. I can't be the only one that hears the high pitched sound that particular shade of red gives off, can I?

    It is very red. I'm hoping it's photoshopping it to cause that and that the actual toys will be more subdued.

    While I think these three molds work okay for the respective characters, I still think they should have done this for the rest:

    1. Sea Clamp - Hot Spot mold

    2. Tarantulas - Legends Groove mold (Theft of Golden Disk tribute) for the Hot Spot chest piece

    3. BW Megatron - Rook mold (Botcon Dawn of Future's Past tribute)
