    Evil Lyn: Yellow or Not?

    So if or when we get Evil Lyn, would you prefer her to be yellow or not? I know the figures are being done in the style of the classics, so theres a good chance she will be yellow, but which would you rather? Maybe a chase or varient version?

    Personally id rather her have a normal skin tone, ive never been a fan of the jaundice look lol.

    UGH! I terribly dislike the yellow skin and baby-blue outfit.

    With that said, I couldn't vote entirely no, since there's no doubt a lot of fans who would want her that way, so I voted a 50/50 variant.

    You should be able to get her in either Blue/yellow or pink/purple.

    skin color

    I much prefer the dusky skin she had with the myp/2000 figure as well as her awesome new outfit colors, the origianl just looked to plain as did the staction con exclusive, that baby blue outfit is just but I could tolerate a mix of the 2 version

    I'd much rather have a non-yellow version of Evil-Lyn. When I was a kid I never understood why the figure was yellow but in the cartoon she wasn't. I'd be up for the 'classic' costume but with the 200x 'skin color' because I think that's as close to the Filmation version as we're ever going to get with out them technically breaking any rules with the rights.

    i'd rather it not be yellow but if it is, so be it. in the end the deciding factor on whether or not i'll buy one will most likely be the sculpt, not the skin tone.

    Personally I am a yellow and Blue Evil Lyn fan. The gray skined Evil-Lyn never sat well with me. A good comprimise might be the version that appeared in the MVC comics. Yellow skin, purple costume. But in my heart I want a yellow and light blue colored Evil -Lyn, just like the comic con excusive!

    I'd like to have a yellow skinned vintage Evil Lyn and a 200X pale skinned Evil Lyn.

    I'm gonna go with yellow becaus its a classics line and I think it will fit better with the origional colors used on the other classics characters. Maybe a little less "LEGO" and a little more subtle? A variant for the other version wouldn't be so bad in this case.

    This was a tough call, as I really liked the design for the 200x line. however, after seeing the yellow skinned variant in the statue line, I remembered how much I liked that version. Therefore, I voted for classics yellow.

    What issue was she Yellow skined in the MVC comics? I don't remember that at all.

    I think my problem with the idea of a yellow skinned Evil-Lyn is that I'm afraid that they'll do the same type of funky shade they did with the 80s toy. It made her look too cartoonish. If they can find a happy medium between Yellow and normal 'flesh' (not the freakishly pale MYP color) then I'd consider getting her.

    I actually like both versions. I'd like to see both released (as a VARIANT (oh noes!) or exclusive), maybe with two heads, one with hair down. Now what color hair should she have...

    PS. My girlfriends name is Evelyn and for years she has been known as Evil-Lyn (thanks to me nick naming her that long long ago).
    She votes classic colors! Mainly because I said thats what I liked.

    Both for me as well. Since it's "Classics" she HAS to be yellow, but I want MYP colours too because they fit her SO well. Plus, MYP colours ae pretty much the same as the MYP Lyn.

    Brothers and sisters, I'd get ready to see the yellow skin. It's the classics line and from what we've seen so far they are nailing them to a T.

    Think about it - of the four we've seen, they look exactly like the 8-back illustrations.

    *And I really like that new Beast-Man sculpt. The colors, the face - it's perfect.

    The scales are more balanced right now, if you look up, so I guess we'll just have to see, huh?

    Hmm. I guess it'll be a 50/50 chase, perhaps, judging by this.
