At the end of this five minute cut showcasing every launch character, we get a brief glimpse of Alex's boots.
They're so clean, you can practically eat off of them.
But more than that, they're refined with a high polygon count. This should tell you how good the rest of his model should look. I don't know why this was even an issue for some people. Of COURSE they're not going to copy and paste that background model fixing the truck.
It just comes down to whether you like his new redesign or not. I'm sure I'm not going to mind it now, although I am looking forward to seeing his classic costume available down the line, which Matt Dahlgren stated would likely be the case for most characters. Good stuff.
