    The upper body seems to be painted, can‘t explain the finger prints otherwise

    Sounds like your figure is possessed by the vengeful spirit of a dead factory worker and the fingerprints are manifestations of the haunting.

    It's obvious, really.

    I have it on Android via the Play store. But the website also lets me just search there.

    You don't need the app. It works without. I got it up using my android phone with no issues

    Is he stable and able to stand-up on his own? Any balance issues? Can he do other stable poses besides straight up and an A-stance?

    TIA.

    Yes thank you. I was thinking of the Generations IDW Springer. Where they just remolded Sandstorm off of him. Perhaps, if done properly (when is it ever perfect?), they could save money and remold a Springer off of Sandstorm.

    I think BW's head is too big and AT's is fine!
    I don't think they look great together, but I can't figure out why. I think it BW's purple was more matte it would be an improvement.

    Different strokes for different folks then, as I believe they look great together. As mentioned, these guys aren't brothers. They probably aren't even friends. They just share common ground. Consequently, no issue with the differences.

    In fact, I celebrate the differences and contrasts, as they compliment each other. One is vividly colored and the other muted. One a bit more lanky and the other stocky. One taller, one a touch shorter.

    Here's some quick and dirty poses. He's very stable and very versatile. Able to single leg balance.

    Lots of ankle and foot play that's effective and supportive. All joints consistent and tight except the abcrunch joint which can come undone from time to time.

    He's either going for the foot sweep or the "I've fallen and I can't get up!" Hahaha

    Don't get me wrong - I think there's something not quite right about his appearance but I'm loving having him in my collection.
