I agree. The toy of Panthro with the robotic arms looks nothing like it did in the cartoon. I think some shows, especially if they aren't super popular, can really be affected by how much the toys look like the cartoon. Playmates first TMNT figures where not exactly accurate to the cartoon...but the toys were still really fun and the cartoon was great so they had great success. A good example of the flip side would be Mattel's Bravestarr toys. I love the Bravestarr cartoon and have all the toys. The figures are really big, well articulated and well sculpted. But there is no denying the figures are not very cartoon accurate at all. I really don't know what the designers at Mattel were thinking. Granted the animation designs were a bit plain looking but I really think they went too far with the amount of extra details etc they added. Granted it made the toys more eye catching and interesting but it made them less accurate to the cartoon. I can't help but think if the toys had been a lot more accurate to the animation (and smaller to interact with the common size of various other toys) it might have done a lot better financially. In relation to Panthro's robotic arms and the character assortment, the pacing of the 2011 series was a bit of a mess. I still think characters like Pumyra, Kanar and Addicus etc should have been introduced a lot earlier and maybe left Panthro's robotic arms to the end of the season instead of half way through.
