    The cartoon was so inconsistent that both are technically accurate.

    I know we've :horse:  over this, but man, those greys all being the same shade is just monochromaticly lame. It looks like we're all getting unfinished prototype sets.

    I wonder if they learned from the Devy set and gave him the ability to look down.

    I do like the wrist articulation, but unfortunately it appears to only go out, and not in. No powerful fist pump . :cry

    I personally quite enjoy how they're using the same plastic for the same colors, just like how the animators would have a strict color palette to work with. All the same greens, blues, greys

    I know this is something that will significantly bother some people, so I figured I should mention it now before people spend their money in case it affects their decision making process. Take a look at Bruticus' thighs, only the left leg (connected to Brawl) has fake wheels on it. That is how the cartoon model is as well, no idea why they thought it wouldn't be mirrored on the other side.

    Yeah this has been known and discussed but never hurts repeating. The designers just took the model sheets at face value. Same reason the center of Brawl’s chest is only partially painted gray. A bit dumb, but not that big of a deal for me.

    I’m not even an ocd type person yet that triggers the feeling that they need to match. I can definitely see how that could drive some people nuts.

    Is there an official picture where the wheel on the inside of the thigh is shown?

    I always thought it made more sense (and symmetrical) if the other wheel is on the outside of the right thigh.

    The worst part is- I don't think there's a single frame in the entire show where they actually draw those wheels. Such an unnecessary detail that actually ends up making the figure look worse.

    I don't know you but I know that I hate you.

    Maybe
    I don't know why MS would only put THAT detail on one leg, but then they go and give us two spotlights for Brawl.

    Yes 3 figures in and it should be mentioned now before spending money on the set.
    A bit late mate :D

    Honestly appreciate that you are supporting other people, but if someone buys this and then complains over that little detail (to the point were they regret the purchase) that person needs less protection and more of a let's grow up attitude. (Considering that most of the legends collectors around here are over 35 years I believe)

    This thing looks awesome, as is.

    We know MS goes for cartoon accuracy based on Studio Ox designs (correct me if I'm wrong here please) and on that design the wheels were there.

    We know there is another option in the form of more toy accurate.

    We know it's going to have a repaint in the near future with probably all the paint details we wanted from the beginning.

    We know other legends companies are going to do this character as is a fan favorite combiner.

    And still some people are going to complain no matter what?

    I rather enjoy what I have instead of moaning about what I don't, specially if it doesn't come to my hand to do it (I can't produce a legends combiner, or any figure for that matter).

    My 2 :2c:

    Anyone here think the right forearm of bruticus should be turned 180 so blastoff's wings are facing in. That is how the toy is and if not mistaken the animation! It would match the lines of vortex making him more symmetrical!
