What Is Your Favorite Look For Evil-Lyn?
What Is Your Favorite Look For Evil-Lyn?
I've always loved Evil Lyn, including the vintage toy and flimation looks. The MYP 200X cartoon design it my favorite though. She is unique compared to Teela but still has classic elements. I also choose the MYP over the 200X toy due to the shared parts, most importantly the boots. Evil Lyn should have had high heels and not that dumb asymmetrical chunky boot thing. With all this said I'm very happy with both "yellow" and Battleground Evil Lyn in MOTUC.
I chose the 2002 Toy version as i think it has the perfect color scheme i imagine for her. Her helmet looks great, itīs a little bit higher on the top part almost like crown and i love the necklace/chocker she wears there.
I almost chose Battleground Evil Lyn, those colors are great and she finally has a cape. I like that she sticks to her iconic outfit, i totally can rely to that thought.
I'd go with the 1987 movie :)
love what was done in myp
I've gotta be honest... I love the vintage figure the best.
In my head that is Evil Lyn... and always will be.
Gotta say Filmation or MYP. The vintage toy is.... well, yellow. Jaundice, much?
I was around for the pre-Filmation era of MOTU, but I'll always be a Filmation guy. Having said that, Evil-Lyn will always be yellow to me. It stands out more and just makes this line that much more colorful. While I may not agree with the 4H on Panthor(flocked) or Man-E-Faces(vintage toy colors), I'm happy they agreed with me on Evil-Lyn.
The staction (purple version) is my favourite.
I don't like the 2002 toy's colours, and I wish that Battleground Evil-Lyn was painted more like the staction.
I like her younger MYP look most, but they're all great; everything in Classics is super to me. I'd love the young version to be the next Lyn figure.
The 200X/MYP version, obviously (not sure why they are separate options on the poll, since they are basically the same design).
never understood why the toy was yellow skinned & the cartoon not. didnt like the yellow skin. that & no one else had same skin tone.
I think she is one of those characters that looks great in all of the above.
Even all of her figures/stactions look good.
Voted MYP, although I'm not too sure what the difference is between that and the 200x version. :hmconf:
I like BG Evil-Lyn a lot...she is a big step closer to the MYP/200x version. I am satisfied with yellow Lyn, but that is by far my least favourite of the lot.
One example of the changes is that her cartoon helmet is black & gold, while the toy is black and silver. The Four Horsemen also added a choker to the toy and staction, which she didn't have on the cartoon.
It's funny because I was going to vote MYP/200x. But then I realized that while I do prefer the vintage look, the thing I liked the best about myp was the skin colour, and to a minor extent, her clothes colour.
And that's what BG Evil Lyn is. The "Real" evil lyn, but with suprerior colouring. She is just as much "Filmation" evil lyn as anything else. Because for me what made filmation Lyn so cool, was she was not yellow.
So the BG one has not yellow skin, and a cape, which is cool and Filmation. BG Lyn is the best version of lyn ever, and I believe the difference in 200x versus Classics is stylistically unimportant. It's basically the same.
At any rate, this poll made me realize that not only am I ok with BG evil lyn, but that she is the Lyn I've been waiting for.
I will probably repaint her seemingly bright magenta/pink paint ap on her "bra straps" a darker purple to more match her 200x colours, (or even faceless one) but still.
This is it.
Battleground Evil-Lyn is the 1 I really like so far cause I love the dark colors anyway.
I love all versions... but the movie version is special... Meg Foster was brilliant... and even though the movie costume was so different, I loved it.
I also love BG Evil-Lyn... she's a "Classicized" version of both the Filmation and MYP Adult Lyn to me...
That doesn't mean I don't want a Zalesian-style "Young Lyn" figure... AHEM!!
I also love the Evil-Lyn from Filmation, and the version seen in the "Between A Rock and A Hard Place" mini-comic.
MYP for me. But isn't the BGEL supposed to be the MYP version?
Chose 200x toy Evil Lyn.
I'm pretty sure Evil-Lyn is the toughest character in which to answer this question! I love EVERY form of Evil-Lyn and the movie version is surprisingly near the top. That doesn't happen very often, let's just say that as I am NOT a movie person at all. Every "look" for Evil-Lyn is perfection IN MY CANON...
I chose Filmation because that's the first one that brought life and personality to her. Also Linda Gary is one of my favorite VAs of all time. Plus she was introduced as "EVIL-LYNNNNN....SORCERESS OF NNNNNIGHT!!!!" and that intro is definitely epic!
The movie version is high on my list. Meg Foster portrayed Evil-Lyn amazingly as a real, non animated person. Love the costume, and especially those evil eyes!
The classic yellow and blue toy look also holds a special place to me personally. I think I actually barely remember getting her at Kmart. Back in the day when Kmart smelled like popcorn and had a cafeteria in it. I very faintly remember that Kmart and getting MOTU there. It wasn't very far from where I grew up. These are like some of the earliest memories I've been able to hang onto all these years. Regardless everywhere I took my Skeletor figure, I just had to take that yellow and blue Evil-Lyn.
I even really love the newer pale and purple look for Evil-Lyn. This is one of the very few (maybe only one actually :shifty: ) characters that I think MYP/200x hit it out the park. They did such a good job on her that I almost feel wrong saying this because I also happen to be blinded by nostalgia. :D
The only thing that comes close in character to Evil-Lyn is Snow White's Evil Queen.
I voted for the 87 FILM version.
I watched it from beginning to end for the first time recently in many years. Love, love, LOVE Evil Lyn in that film! Her costume is pretty spectacular, and the actress was amazing.
Filmation, followed closely by MYP. Movie Evil-Lyn's third.
MYP Evil-Lyn for me.
