I'm not particularly bothered by it, either, but having recently bought some Hasbro figures that use true white and seeing the real difference between them, I'd prefer Mattel used proper white like they did on She-Ra 2.0. It just looks way better overall.

BP She-Ra, molded, WHITE!
Sorceress, molded, light bluish / gray white, more white than anything
Prince Adam, Molded, light bluish / gray white, more white than anything
Zodac (TRU) painted (Gloves), gray (belt) white
BG Evil-Lyn, painted (hair) light grayish white (still a different shade than anyone else I have)
Frosta, molded, gray....plain gray, no white at all
The only similarities are:
Frosta's boots, skirt and gloves & Zodac's gloves are the same color
Teela & Sorceress' whites are roughly the same color
Adora's shirt, Adam's shirt and She-Ra's dress are the same color
Where is the consistency in the lines whites you see? I don't know about you, but my shelves are full of inconsistencies....
The latest being they made She-Ra 2.0 to remedy the skirt thing so she could sit on Swiftwind, ONLY, to make the Filmation Randor unable to sit?....
I just got my Frosta yesterday and this Cool Gray colour is DISGUSTING.
Absolutely deplorable Toy Guru. Have a word to your design staff, please, because Frosta has been pretty much ruined by their decision to use that horrible, dull, dirty colour.
This, along with the decision to reverse Stinkor's forearms, are not forgiveable.
Maybe our "free gift" should be a corrected Frosta and Stinkor.
Opened my Frosta at my work desk and I have a Teela on display... well... Teela has white... so why the hell is Frosta a dark grey in comparison!!?!? UGH
It really is dark and theres no "light" about it. Its a dark grey. Put Frosta next to any other character who has white in their palette... you'll see the difference.
Exactly, the closest one is She-Ra, and she's still lighter than Frosta.

They maybe using what is classified/technically a gray but it looks like a "dirty" white to me.
Would I prefer white? Yes. Should it be white? Yes. But this is ok.
The grey is fine for Temple of Doom Sorceress, as she is supposed to be wearing feathers, which are rarely pure white.
I don't understand why Frosta was made in a darker grey though.
