Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

One of the Black Series 6" Mauls also has wonky eyes that are a little too big and cartoony for my tastes, but we have to remember that a lot of the product we're seeing today has been hand painted as a first generation display copy, not the final production model that will hang on a peg near you.

This is very evident on the new $5.99 Saga Legends Clone Troopers, which have obvious hand-applied blue and orange striping that looks nothing like the paint we normally see on Clone Troopers in stores. The Anakin Skywalker in that new line also has an iffy skin tone and reddish hair, which is wrong no matter how you slice it.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
