Candy Bruce: Guessing its a gummy (though someone on Jellyneo's comments suggested blown sugar, aka sugar that has been inflated similar to how glassware is made; though I think they were going for gummy as I'm about to explain)? It's alright, nothing too fancy, sort of get the feeling they were trying for a "gummy bear" vibe but instead of cute bears its a cute penguin (though if that was the idea maybe have used this idea for Candy Yurble as its the closest Neopet we have to a bear). Wonder what flavor it is, not orange enough to be orange, but too orange to be something like lemon. Maybe one of the non-typical flavors like peach or mango (or I guess we could go for a Neopian fruit therefore never have to explain how it tastes).
Brucey B: Now had they just had the shirt, sunglasses, and magic coin that would have been good, a perfect 10/10 recreation. But that inclusion of a giant grin turns this from good to GREAT! It's not something big or amazingly detailed, but it brings back what I said about the Malkus Vile Skeith and how it was unable to capture the essence of the character because of the Neopets default appearance. Brucey B is known for his bright shining grin, and this simple smile adds just exactly that and now I'm looking at Brucey B. Not a Bruce dressed as Brucey B, but the character himself. Heck, even if the Neopet was another Colour or gender would still look like Brucey B (well, maybe a Brucey B fan).
