It has been FAR too long since our last comparison, so here’s a figure that I like to criticize. Upon first seeing this figure, I was pretty disappointed. Was I was really hoping for was a sort of “General Grievous” type build with different parts that could better capture the size and shape of the metal menace. However, I have my theories as to why we got what looks like just another Ultron sentry with a neck brace. The figure is actually pretty detailed, but you may have noticed some slight inaccuracies that set this figure slightly apart from its film counterpart. What I didn’t realize until recently is that this figure, like MANY others, was based off of concept art. I have labeled that design in the third slide. What I think happened, was this figure was designed without the neck piece to be accurate to that piece of art. They actually succeeded in that respect. It looks very similar to that source material. You’ll remember though, that the Ultimate Ultron figure is also based off of concept art (and we’ll be looking at that one in tomorrow’s post) The design that Ultimate Ultron was based off of had a differently shaped head, so a new, two-piece design was created to suit this shape. However, as the final Ultron design was released, LEGO was left with a plane minifig with elaborate printed, so to better capture the shape of the head and still keep the details of the headpiece visible, they added the neck bit of the two-piece Ultron head. While it’s not... horrible... I had some extremely high hopes for this figure. What do you guys think of this figure? .
