Is it me or is the offering of Commander Gree just a little shoddy on the paint application?
Check out the toy pics here:
Then compare to the official site:
and you'll see that Hasbro is NOWHERE near how Gree looked in the movie.
Okay let's go over the points of discussion:
• For one notice even the helmet in the picture of the insert for the toy is from the movie and yet (1) the top portion of the helmet on the toy appears to be all green. Yet again the insert it's not. Going to the main site you can see that in fact it's not, (2) the "cheeks" of Gree are white, but the toy's are green. Again the insert in the toy packaging even clearly shows this.
• Chest straps-okay I'm not alone in feeling that Hasbro cheapened out here and painted them instead of sculpting them, but sheesh at least paint them thicker and EVEN!
•Overall green wash-particularly in two areas. The difference from the shoulder armor (dark green) and the lower arm armor (camoflauge and lighter green) is on the toy virtually indistinguishable. The chest part bothers me even more. The niddle part of the chest is the dark green while the rest is the camoflauge pattern. On the toy it's MUCH different. The middle portion is now the olive drab green while the outer parts are BLACK?? WTH is up with that? Once again this is even clear on the insert in the package.
• The legs suffer the same olive drab coloration rather than the light camoflauge that it should be (not to mention no pistolstrap on the left leg!)
All in all I've got to say that Hasbro did a crappy job with the paint apps of this figure. Will I still get him? Yes, but I will heavily modify at least one of him to be movie accurate. That and I'll make some appropriate chest straps and pistol strap.
Dang, I was all excited about this figure, but seeing what's coming out leaves VERY much to be desired. (And that's putting it nicely.)
