However the figure’s head looks a bit odd. It appears as if the head is looking straight ahead instead of off to the side like its M.U.S.C.L.E. counterpart. There are two likely scenarios that explain the head on this Green #197.
1. It is an exact copy, but the counterfeit figure’s head has warped – similar to the “M.U.S.C.L.E. Warp.”.
2. It is a seemingly lazy attempt at creating an “original” sculpt. The caster believed that realigning the head would somehow protect the company from any potential patent and/or copyright infringement. Ultimately creating a figure category that seems to reside somewhere between counterfeit figures and Frankenstein-like amalgam figures.
