I mean, yes. Creepy. Why does the one have flowers growing out of its head? Or is it wearing a flower pot on its head?
My biggest criticism is that they'd be a lot more posable if the ball cups for their hips and shoulders were on the leg and arm pieces instead of the torso pieces. That's a problem that also bugs me about a lot of Mixels. When built this way the legs and arms can't really bend forward and back much.
Although that aside, I remember seeing Wenlock, the 2012 mascot, having a great time in the Olympic stadium at the athletics, quite often having to be restrained by officials which made for some quality viewing! He was stupid looking but weirdly comical. Never got a minifig though...
The way I see, South American countries are the HOME TEAM, and all the countries are the VISITORS The mascot should be something you affiliate with South America (other than Cocaine) to trump up the home team support!
Hello Google, my old friend...
Still don't get why people think they're awful — to me they seem adorable! If I were a kid attending the Rio Olympics I'd want plushies of both of them!
How bout a SPOILER alert next time. You totally ruined my legwork. :P
Although the games are specifically the Rio games, not the Brazillian games.
Don't get me started on corporate / sport branding and logos... Oh dear, oh dear...
What's next? Change jerseys every season like the premier soccer leagues in Euro do?
The cash grab and ripping off of consumers continues...
Green polo for the flower spike would also be better.
Only buying them at 25% of the original price.
Maybe if TLG made the ball and socket joints in the right colours? and if these are less than £1 each?
I don't like it, but I must possess one.
