    Like the redesign, he looks more evil as he's a Nemesis Prime (al), or Apeface.

    Am I the only one really bothered about the extended crotch piece in the middle of the waist guard? Is it not obvious that it's an innuendo? It's also in the same spot as the combined mode!

    I would really be grateful it if it wasn't there...

    I can sense the "ask cang toys if it's removable" comments

    I guess if I were 40 years younger that might make me point and laugh, but as an adult it just makes me think of a metal loincloth or something. I didn't really notice it until you pointed it out.

    Oh no, a slightly phallic shape!

    Another sign that points to his real identity being Apeface masquerading as a Prime

    I rarely see or even complain about these things but this one is way too obvious with where it's positioned and angled. And yeah, I didn't notice it until someone pointed it out too and it just made a lot of sense.

    I can't recall any other figure that has one as close as this where the community doesn't see it as so.

    I haven't seen it yet from the side, but perhaps it's more obvious from that perspective. I think in combined mode it's not a problem, being so relatively small. Maybe more of an issue with Thorilla? It could be relevant to transformation, though I doubt it.

    Meh, it doesn't bother me. It'd be easy to trim off in any case.

    Personally, I'm not really bothered by it, but at the same time, I can't help but feel it also doesn't seem to serve any clear purpose; functionally, or aesthetically. It doesn't look like any kind of hindrance, it just seems odd and unnecessary?

    I really can't believe this is an issue for anyone. Very odd to me.

    The phallic crotch is the least of this figures issues. Glad I didn't buy in early because I'd be selling them off just like Skullface. Razorclaw's design was one thing but monkey pants destroyed my interest even further. MMC did a much better job of adding additional characters to the team of 5 with Catilla and Feral Queen.

    I keep seeing Thugorilla when I see this lol. At any rate, I like the look of Thorgorilla and Kinglion seems a bit different it prototype... either that or the figure itself has just grown on me...

    Mkay. Well, I really like how the gorilla is shaping up.
    The crotch is weird, tho.

    I am really digging the proportions of Thorilla. Love the double barreled arm cannons. Very cool. Can't wait to FINALLY see the whole team together. Would be awesome if they were all in color, but I would be really surprised if they were at this point. Trying to hold out for the potential box set, but it is getting harder to wait, now that we are getting to see the whole team.

    It helps a little holding off if you're in their Legends scale version. I'm doing that, but vice versa

    I just can't make peace with the horn on the lion, or, much more seriously, the DANGLING PENIS on the gorilla and combined mode.

    I was never into the gorilla being added to the roster and the more I see, the less I like it. I don't want to bail though, since I really like the first 3. Colored combined mode pics would help a lot.

    This is the same website where people said they wouldn’t buy TFC’s abominus because it was named after fictional demons

    An elephant would be a cool addition to the team.
