Photoshopped Box Art, re: 'improving' the figs. Misleading or not?
Hey guys and gals,
I've just picked up the new Super Heroes Lex Luthor set (superman, wonder woman), and couldn't help but feel a little cheated that Wonder woman does not have the blue eye-liner as shown on the box 'photo' (and also on a few other shots too).
Now, I totally understand the desire to present each set in the best possible light, and i'll happily look past the 'special effects', cos' obviously we all know that a set does not have an exploding planet in it, and its nice to see 'action' shots. I will even let them off with misaligned printing or wishy-washy almost transparent colour, cos' I'm an easy going guy and realise that printing these things is tricky without a white base coat.
And I can even turn a blind eye to the 'brushing up', such as shiney polished surfaces. BUT adding features which aren't actually there? Come on, I call foul. *shakes head* that is just not on.
I want, nay DEMAND, my wonder woman in all her glamourous glory! :o)
If the photo shows her with blue make-up, the fig should have blue make-up. By the Gods!
I also noticed that the image on the box art shows her collar bones (or whatever) are a muted colour, to indicate flesh/shadow, but the model has a deep black line instead.
Is this a first by LEGO to so clearly alter the fig on the box, or do they have form? What do other people think.
The stupid thing is, if the model had been photographed more honestly, i'd probably not be too bothered - it's a jolly nice fig (could do with printed wrists) - but it's the principle of being promised what isn't there that I find irks the most, and it sets an expectation level for the product that the product doesn't deliver on.
