Question Does Spock look weird to you?

I have not seen the movie, yet.
All my references are promotional materials.
However, I think Spock looks funny.
I realize it is not Leonard Nimoy playing the young version,
and I don't mean he looks funny because he doesn't look
like Leonard Nimoy.
I have seen other Vulcans in the TV series', in the movies, and yet
this guy looks funny, as a Vulcan.
Did they do that to make the point that he's half-Vulcan?
Maybe it is because his face looks too smooth.
I can't put my finger on it.

Does anyone agree?

To be honest I think visually Quinto is as close as you'll get. Maybe just differences in make up techniques over the years makes a difference.

Maybe I didn't make myself clear.
I'm not complaining that he doesn't look
like Nimoy. Forget who the character is.
I'm asking if he looks strange for a Vulcan.
Any Vulcan. Generic Vulcan.

Not really sure I follow.

On some of the later shows Vulcans were depicted with a kind of tanned look on their skin (presummably from the nature of Vulcan's climate) and Quinto is a little paler. But then Nimoy was also less tanned looking in TOS anyway.

The only place I think he looks weird are on the mag covers hes been on. It almost looks like he was photo-shopped to death and all waxy looking. In the movie scenes and stills he looks pretty convincing to me.

Looks like a normal Vulcan to me... Do you have a specific photo for reference so we can see what you're looking at?

It's so strange seeing him clean shaven. LOL I'm so used to that 10 o'clock shadow he always sports.
