    Everyone is struggling with deciding if it's worth it to buy 2 of a figure for themselves let alone someone across the country. You would get the best luck buying a second one yourself for that goal

    I... What? I'm pretty sure they're only asking to borrow the parts so copies can be made.

    Last week I think. Whenever we first saw color photos and that it was different from the cartoon version.

    I wonder if he could do the toy feet but color matched. I prefer the more detailed toy feet but I like how the toon feet are color coded to Brawl and Swindle...if I didn't make that clear with my initial query. :dunce

    He could. Btw I wanted to know at least someone else is down, as this won’t be free for me- it’ll require duplicate figures I wasn’t planning on buying as well as mailing to him, so before I made that investment…

    btw. Are these feet solid blocks?

    Hey, Brawl's in NY.

    Definitely becoming tempted to get the so-called IDW versiona.

    Which annoys me.

    There’s the ankle tiler and the toes are double jointed - probably around 8 parts per foot?

    Honestly didn't see amongst all the whining and complaining in this thread. Sorry. I'm getting doubles so if you need any parts I can help.

    IDW Brawl came today. Figure looks 100% the same no color variance I can see. I like the new box and the new foot... not really my thing. Have to see when the team is together.

    edit: One other thing, the card included.

    Nice to see they put more effort into changing up the card than they did the figure :rolleyes:

    I don’t think anyone would be happy about changes to the figure, m where you been the last, say, 20 pages?

    Both decisions were bad by MS. We want different decos with each figure. But what we don’t want is the IDW/Toy version to come with a more show accurate deco figure over the actual toon version figure. Like
    Give us the darker colors to match the G1 toys. The IDW label is BS because they had multiple different looks in the comics. None of which looks like the figure MS is selling.

    So the foot differences are the color and the toe. The rest of the foot has all the detailing.
