Also. very pleased i found a buyer for Netossa. Still not a fan, but i was too harsh calling her garbage. Just bummed about not getting Ram Man.
I like the cape we got - think it looks pretty awesome. Can't wait for her arrival. :)
I like her current cape for display, but nothing wrong with getting some other nets for function. The vintage looks too wrinkly for my tastes. I'm not into it at all.
I am totally going to add the spear from Hawkgirl, I have it sitting on the shelf waiting for her!
Blame me. I guess I'm the racist lol.
I thought of her as a huntress and I've said so here (a while back) and said so on RGD, suggesting she should have a crossbow or a spear because she's a huntress.
It's funny, it never once crossed my mind that suggesting a spear was somehow racist. It had ZERO to do with her being dark-skinned and 100% to do with her being a trapper who hunts.
Just my bad, I guess :mad:
It's not racist. I didn't even think of her race (of blue haired women) when coming up with the idea of a spear.
I was specifically inspired by this. She has realistic hunting abilities and accuracy.
Her prime ability is one of the more realistic powers expressed in the series. No magical aid or mythical source allowed her to throw nets strapped to her back - that was all her own work, putting her on a par, skill-wise, with Bow. She captured a moving Catra after being thrown by She-Ra, and a threatening Horde Trooper - her precision is shown by the fact that she threw this particular net through the bars on her cell-door!
Wow! The most amazing thing ever just happened! Netossa just arrived here in Germany today! Only two days afther I got my shipping confirmation from Mattel! :hmeek::hmeek::hmeek::hmeek::hmeek:
The reason for the incredibale fast shipping seems to be DHL, which I chose as shipping option when I ordered. I didn't have to bother with the customs office but had to pay the customs duty directly to DHL (I had to give it cash to the postman), which is probably part of the reason why this went so fast.
Choosing DHL definitely was the right decision, gone are the days of four-five weeks of waiting for figures, gone are the days where I had to spend hours waiting at the customs office. And you actually get a tracking number for international shipping as well!
This is just awesome and I'm really, really, happy right now! :hmgrin:
(still waiting for Granamyr, though, who was sent with international post and not with DHL) :hmshift:
Mine just arrived minutes ago! I'm totally glad I switched from Cornerstone Logistics to UPS shipping. The right knee joint is a bit loose, but other than that I'm very impressed. No major plaint flubs and the black circle on the cape is hardly noticeable. The cape seems far more durable than Leech's net.
Shame you're still waiting on Granamyr, i used fast shipping for this guy and he got here quick too.
This is kind of hilarious. $15.10 UPS shipping for 2 Netossa figures, and I don't receive her until Thursday lol - and I'm in NYC. :sklol::hmsad:
I'm glad you guys all received her so quickly though - I know usually you guys always have to wait FOREVER!

My mate who ordered our subs in Australia just received shipment of Netossa. That is crazy fast (and first time a figure has been here, for me, before it was released on site). Super happy with the DHL shipping being offered this year for international customers. :)
Can't wait until next month's pot of gold!!
We've posted photos of our Netossa review sample. Our sample does have the "shaded" spot on the cape. She photographs very well and has an improved, more feminine face sculpt than Frosta.
I want to paint an extra Goddess spear I have white with some blue detail for Netossa. Do you guys think that would work?
All of these pics are making me want my Netossa NOW, but alas I picked the cheapest shipping possible for the 2013 sub and my stuff is currently in Sparks, Nevada...LOL
