Something about the face on that figure just looks off. I thought the previous two figures captured the actor's likeness much better.

The character seems to smile more but the head looks like the soul has been removed.

If they're working from digital scans of the actor, that is usually an issue. The actor has to hold completely still for several minutes, and it's not really possible to hold any expression but "neutral" for the time it takes. It should be the job of the toy company to then manipulate that digital sculpt to give it some personality, but maybe Hasbro didn't want to do that (Tommy and Tyler don't have big expressions on their faces, and they look fine).

The fact that the images they released are all shot from a slightly low angle might also be throwing off the likeness.

digital faces are hard, we know pictures, we know video...these are usually 2d representations having a 3d head is a little different I think it doesn't translate as well especially if it's a low res scan with a texture wrapped around it, lighting makes or breaks these things usually...just look at the figuart figures ..

Does anyone know the codes for the blind packs of the Mini Morphers, the ones printed on the bag to indicate what's inside? A search of "Mini Morphers" led me to this thread, but I'm not seeing it...
