Am I the only one that notices that the Splinter fig doesn't have the sleeves like he does in the cartoon?

Yeah... like it matters? He prolly doesn't heve 'em baecause it would be difficult or something like that.

I have no clue why that is. I'm just guessing that the no sleeve thing is easier to put the shirt on? I don't know. Ignore me.

Well, they didn't have sleeves on the old Splinter figure either--and at least they've made an improvement on the robe itself, and got rid of the ragged-looking trim on the bottom. Also, the new Splinter seems to have the same accessories he used to have--albeit in multiple incarnations: He has the ninja bow, the sword cane (though they, like the other new weapons have gotten the nifty repaint treatment) from the original, and the ooze, and the quiver of arrows (also repainted) from the movie Splinter. Anyway, I got it as a gift from my girlfriend, and I like it a lot better than the old one. But I do kinda wish it had sleeves, too. :wink:

JAh, that reminds me of the old action figure line when they had Shredder with the cape and no shirt on, and I was like, what nonsense is this!?!?!? He didn't look like that in ANY of his incarnations, comics or cartoon. WTF???

And also, why are Michaelangelo's nunchuckas put on his back, when in the cartoon they go on the sides like Raph? Oh well.
