Okay. I decided to do the best of two worlds and keep two of them the same, then give the other two the brown studs. Variety is the spice of life, after all. The bley was growing on me too.
But anyway, I'm not sure what I like better here:
I noticed Lego decided to make the new white Ninjago hoods without any printed stuff on them. I then realized I could use them. Here's a comparison shot with two swordsmen, one with the new hood and the old hood.
Sure, I have to add a clip to the back now if I still want to include the throwing spear (which I do), but now the heads are totally pose-able without looking silly and awkward. If anything I might just use the new hoods on the officer swordsmen instead of buying like 23 more copies. Just thought it'd be interesting to compare the two. Thoughts?Maybe I should have asked this before the update. Oh well.
