In general, many G3 characters are visually unappealing and the latest batch included in CTA4 Power Tools vol. 1- Social Buddies are especially so. The whole "modernist flaccid minimalist pastel" appearance is just as disappointing here in CA4 as it is in CTA3.
Fundamentally these G3 characters look cheap!!
I'd like to see more attention paid to the G2 Character.
