    Eh. Almost all of the 4H female figure's facial sculpts look the same to me.

    They all share nearly identical eyes, noses and pouty lips. Without the different hair sculpts and paint applications (eye and lip colour) I suspect all their female figures would look near identical (with a few exceptions - like Harley Quin).

    And yes, they all sort-of remind me of Angelina Jolie (not that an army of Angelina Jolie look-alikes is a bad thing - just don't include Octomom).

    Cheers.

    Angelina Jolie makes for a hotter Evil-Lyn type than Teela. If you've guys seen the Four Horsemen's DCUC Black Canary figure, her face is MUCH softer and rounder. THAT face is perfect for Teela. But you never know what a figure looks like until it's painted. I hope she doesn't look like Angelina. Both are beautiful but in different ways methinks.

    No, MOTUC Teela's features seem more angular and a bit more mature than the vintage figure's. Of course we still need to see the face painted to really know. I think the sculpt on the MOTUC Teela is a dead ringer for Jolie but the vintage fig looked more like the teen girl next door who baby sits the kids. I'm glad we got a more sultry, adult face this time.

    Oh no, not this ugly Angie. Better 4HM takes the look from Jessica alba(her body) and Jenni Aniston(her face).

    Her face actually looks pretty good in that headdress. Nice photoshop! I still don't really see her as a Teela, but I do like the Teela face sculpt.

    The 4H's DCSH Catwoman was indeed modeled after Angelina.

    Whose pics I actually used for reference while repainting the face on mine since the paint job was totally botched with an odd 5 o'clock shadow thing going on.

    Embarrassed to admit it but I don't have photoshop - had to manipulate the photos in Powerpoint and turn the slide into a JPG. Thanks though.

    Lay Ze-man, can we get a pic of your Catwoman without mask? The repaint on the face looks great.

    The figure does look alot like her. I wonder if the snake less head will have the same sculpt with just hair instead of armour on it.

    Hopefully painted there will be NO resemblence.
    The 4H said the 200X Teela's face sculpt was based after Denise Richard's.
    Although I see no resemblence to her in MOTUC.
    It looks more like the 8-back card art.
    I am hoping the alternate head comes with more of a design similar to that nice softness of the original figure or more of a Frazetta look.

    Isn't this Zoolander's Blue Magnum look?

    I can see it a little in her upper lip, maybe a tad in the eyes, but honestly I think people see Angelina Jolie everywhere. She's like Cleopatra or some kind of cultural archetype of the week. Not long ago everyone was seeing Jessica Alba (which is funny cause she's younger than Jolie). Isn't it more likely that Jolie is shaping her image and pouting her lips up to fit a social perception of beauty that the 4 Horsemen are also tapping into for their sculpts? There's got to be a college somewhere dumb enough to give me a grant to study this phenomenon.

    I think you're onto something, but I don't think she has to do much intentional pouting.
    Her lips are HUGE.

    Actually, the mask is glued on and I never took it off.
    I kinda wanted it to be removable since the prototype we originally saw had it like that.
    Maybe one of these days we'll get an unmasked variant released for DCUC.

    IMO, that face sculpt ruins the Catwoman too. How about an extra head - a Jolie head for fans and non-Jolie head for non-fans!

    Softness and Frazetta should never be used again in the same sentence.

    Seriously though, the face the prototype has now is very Frazetta. I never liked Teela or Evil Lyn's face from the vintage line.

    Teela question: have they said the armor is to be removable?

    I've seen a couple references to it being sculpted on the head, but don't remember seeing anything official about it. Did I miss something?
