    So lets theoretically say that this guy's deco may be getting tweaked in the future. Here's Alex Milne's original concept for Rod that I went and colored and whatnot. Which of the following three decos would you guys say you prefer?

    As far as I can tell the most common palette he had in season 1 was either A or B or somewhere between those two while in season 2 he either had A or C. Personally I'd be very happy with A or C but I might lean more towards A since I feel that the "pure red" palette was the rarest in the comic as Rod always seemed to be at least a little bit orange and the very orange palette was more of a season 1 style thing specifically.

    Side note: I realize in some issues he had yellow biceps rather than white, I just think the white looks way better, breaks up the rest of his color very nicely.

    Very nice colouring. All of them look good to me, although A is my favourite. If it ends up using any of these colour schemes I'll be happy, though.

    I think "B" works best with existing de-saturated MMC figures, but seeing them side-by-side reminds me how much I hate those feet.

    A is my favorite. Slightly muted colors, but still a little pop.

    I'd pick "C" but really we've only seen the prototype with colors ONCE. No clue what the final (or near-final) deco will really be just yet...

    I must be the odd one because those three look so similar I don't care which. I barely can even see a difference. Any would be awesome.

    And SXS's looks amazing to me so I'm sure I'll want both... MMC's fit my tastes better but hot dog does SXS's look fantastic as well. Luckily we can have both.

    Ok awesome, thanks guys just wanted to get a feel for what people wanna see and whether that lines up with my own interests with how his deco should be handled. Granted mmc's mold isn't 1-1 with milne's design so not everything will be an exact translation to their figure. Just thinking about his general colors for now.

    Well, I do know. But I can't say why yet. :D

    I also agree that B fits in best with the other MMC figures but, eh, A is my favorite.

    All three look fine, though C is the one I'd must enjoy seeing.
