Glad you posted that Scorpia cos I was just about to tear my house upside down looking for a missing DT shield! :calol:
Thanks Scorpia. :D
So even taking an extra head into consideration, the 4H have a LOT of freedom with this girl! And yeah, I'm not entirely sold on her bright green color either, maybe they will tone her colors down a bit, or break the outfit up a bit the way they did with Bow.
I'd love to see her come with a double-sided knife - perfect for stabbing someone in the back with! :srgrin:
I love Double Trouble and can't wait till they make a MOTUC figure of her. I'm fine with how she looked as a figure except i wish they had given her more strands of hair in the ponytail. The figure sort of seemed like she had thinning hair.
I always thought of her as a spy who pretended to work for the Horde and spent most of her time with the horde but fed information and was really loyal to the rebellion.
In the She-Ra episode "Reunions" Glimmer states that one of the rebellions spies has just learned that her mother queen angella was a slave to hunga the harpy. I always thought of that spy as being Double Trouble.
I think she would have made a great character in the cartoon and they could have made an episode towards the end of season one or in season two where the Horde finds out Double Trouble is a spy and She-Ra has to rescue her.
After Mermista, she was my favorite POP figure as a kid. I loved that she could just walk in to either camp and be trusted.
Since she has so much potential, I could see them giving her a second dress with Horde symbol, but if not, I'm perfectly fine with her being a straight redesign of the original, with two faces/heads.
When they make her, I'm putting her amidst Hordak's ranks. Vampy looks, outlandish ensemble... it's only natural. Now, if they were to make both versions, the brunette prototype will be the evil look for me, and the blond is her natural look, and will go in the Rebellion. Same goes if they make a brunette Sweet Bee too. But that's because I always saw the brunette as a different woman entirely.
The dark haired version of sweet-bee with the black dress and yellow trim i think of as an evil member of sweet-bee's people. I think of her as Bee-A-Trix who was a sketch of an evil bee woman that gbagok designed but didnt complete
Great, now I want to draw brunette Double Trouble and brunette Sweet Bee... :hmlol: Not necessarily a bad thing though.
I was just thinking that she could come with a circular Yin-Yang shield, but with two womens faces sculpted into either side of the circle. Then maybe it could split apart into pointed weapons.
Anyone got any Double Trouble pics or media? I don't know much about this character at all and she is near the bottom of my PoP want list. The only picture I remember ever seeing of her was on PoP cardbacks and back of mini comics.
lol @ how she puts on her evil face. :lol:
So she's like the PoP Man-E-Faces then. I like the green, but I dunno about her helmet/hair. It's kinda knight-ish to me.
I'm all for the lesser portrayed characters, Double Trouble needs a GOOD bio though. I worry about bios for characters that don't have much media.
So she never came with anything but a comb and never used any weapons in the mini comics? What could she possibly come with accessory-wise?
I used to give my classic Double Trouble the big gray halberd axe weapon from the Grayskull weapons rack... I'd like to see her come with something along the lines of that. She's really a clean slate when it comes to accessories... heck, they could load her up with all sorts of double agent gadgets, 007-style!
I kind of hope they give us two separate heads for Double Trouble and make it so they can clip INTO the helmet like the mini-comic and the helmet with necklace like the toy. I think that would be pretty darn awesome! They could also give us both capes.
About weapons, I could see her with a spear and/or a sword. Double Trouble always seemed very "warrior" to me...and making the Evil Horde believe she's one of them, she has to be fierce.
Here are some more official pictures of Double Trouble:
the prototype version:
Charlie Brown: Thanks for reminding me about that U-Matics Double Trouble!
Seriously, at the very least she needs (a) two entirely different face sculpts - not merely different expressions, as different as Adora & Catra - and (b) two different chestplates (preferably with a big Horde symbol on one, but that Filmationesque one as the minimal alternative).
I really like Double Trouble and I love the fact that she is mysterious. I wonder why they never used her in the cartoon. Does anyone know?
I do hope they use the classic toy design and she definitely needs 2 faces.
I'm kind of happy that they can only base her off of the toy or mini-comic, so she has to be more detailed! The colouring books are close to the toy, but a tad less detailed...and Mattel doesn't have the rights to the colouring books anyway. :shlol:
I'll be mad if she comes out like the prototype. Her colours are very unappealing like that, and besides, she looks too close to Filmation's character "Lohni," She-Ra's female friend in Horde Trooper armour with a head like that. I would much rather have a Lohni than that colour scheme Double Trouble. ;)
Agreed on the two different face sculpts.Quote:

Does anyone think she'll still be Glimmer's cousin in MOTUC? That's kind of the only thing we really ever knew about her personally.
