If the legs stay like that, even with the added effects, I will be disappointed. I feel like it needs a little extra that will probably be added later. If not, the promo images have definitely got our hopes to high.


I dont see how different it is to the latest promo images though? the legs look identical, ok they havent got the rest of the theming on yet but the frame of the legs seen here:

look identical to what we see here:

theyve still yet to attach everything on such as the 5 elements...im not sure we will see the wires and tubes though as dangling wires like that may swing too close to the track maybe? I do see your point though if you mean if theyre just left like this and nothing to bulk them out with...personally i LOVED the original idea for this where it looked more of a building with windows that was on the original plans:

Looks like they have the base of one leg in position.

Once complete, it'll look amazing,

Only thing I don't get is why the legs aren't black like the track.

To make it stand out, nothing more nothing less. Same reason why they made the track and supports all black, so the marmaliser is the main focal point of the area.
