    Should Skeletor and Evil-Lyn have capes?

    I think capes really worked for those characters...

    For Evil-Lyn, it really helped differentiate her from being an evil clone of Teela. Originally she didn't have a cape, until Filmation added it.

    Skeletor is a different story. For MYP Skeletor, the cape worked. For original Skeletor, it doesn't.

    I think Evil Lyn could work with a cape. But save the Skelly-cape for Keldor, it will make the figure feel more fresh and different.

    I say give them both capes. Personally, I don't think there should be a "keldor figure" at all because there should be just one skeletor figure with an interchangeable Keldor head.

    I dont think that is a important issue...
    They may be similar to the original animated series...

    I voted to give BOTH capes. However, I would only like capes for the figures IF they are removeable.

    Skeletor had a cape in the MYP series so it's not a problem for him. With Evil-Lyn though, you may be right...

    I agree with Darkspecter, I'd only want capes if they can be removed.

    Removable capes would be great. That way, those who want those figures to have capes would be happy and those who dislike the capes could just remove the cape.

    There should have been an option to want them if they were removable cuz then I wouldda said yes to both--now I just voted for only her having one.

    I voted for just Lyn-- mostly because I prefer my Skeletor capeless. But if he came with one that was removeable, I wouldn't complain too loudly.

    If they’re removable accessories I don’t mind. But honestly, I will not display them with capes, and don’t like the aesthetics of capes on the classic versions. So I don’t want them; but for those who do it is an easy compromise.

    There has been a lot of talk of accessory packs for this kind of thing though. It might be a good solution.

    I would like for capes and non-included weapons/armor like this to be released as a bi-quarterly accessory pack (if feasible) through the collector club. They could charge the same as a figure for it, but it would include unique offering for all figures released up to that point. Anyone like this idea?

    ...me. I removed vintage King Randor's and Hordak's capes as soon as I got them. And the same will happen to Classics Skeletor and Evil-Lyn if they give them capes. I wanna be able to see EL's bare back, like I could on the vintage toy. Sexy!
    People who say certain characters should never be remade is stupid. Throw rocks at them.

    I support Filmation characters for MOTUC! Let Mattel know it's worth their while to get the rights to those characters!

    Not feelin the cape idea, this isn't The Justice League. Maybe for King Randor or a small Feminine cape for Evil-Lyn.

    I think they both should have capes and others have said they would need to be removable.

    I think neither will have capes because the old figures didn't nor the
    card-backs

    Both Removable capes!

    Evil-lyn's should resemble the furry one she wore in "History".

    Skeletor makes sense with a cape, because he's rockin' a hood. That hood should be attached to something y'know, so a cape works for him. But, as has been discussed in other threads, MotUC isn't about doing what makes sense. It's an homage to the vintage line, and while some updating is OK, a cape would be too much of a departure from vintage Skelly, so I voted no capes for either of them.

    I voted both, but only if they are removeable, I can always custom mine to have them otherwise.
    Look for my designs on Deviant art. I am under Octobersdream. Will do commissions of anything, original to recreating any older line. Also needing POP stuff and some MoTU things aswell.

    I want capes, but not hard plastic ones like King Grayskull. Soft plastic or cloth.

    I frown on capes.

    Evil-Lyn should have a cape. Especially since she is using the same body mold as Teela. Although the body mold is still the same, it does help to make them look somewhat different from each other.

    As a kid, I always gave Evil-Lyn a cape (the purple cape that the bad leader from Captain Power had, as I recall...) Looked good!
