    I don't think it does though. I think you can basically have her straight forward... or if you force her to turn all the way so that she's turned like you see her in that picture ... anything inbetween isn't going to work because of the dress and it'll just pop back to the original position.

    Honestly though, right now i'm more annoyed by the blocked hips... I think its disgusting when female figures can only "sit" by looking like porno hookers.

    I completely agree with you here!

    And I agree with this too. Well said. If you keep her straight to 100% turned to the side as THE ONLY TWO options, then she's not poseable. And her non-existent hip movement is not great either. But DANG she is perdy! Mattel did a great job with the paint aps!

    I comepletely agree, but I'm still gona wait until I have her in hand to see if I'm unhappy with the joint the way it is. I can already think of a few ways that joint will be useful; not as useful as a true waist joint, but it should come in handy (only because I have a few other figures in a similar situation). Might help with certain poses.

    Great news that Teela has waist articulation.

    But Mattel really need to do something about the flexibility of the dress. My "Xena" action figures which are about 10 years old used the "soft plastic dress over standard body" method and the "skirt" area is still flexible (and in one piece) after all these years. If Toy Biz could figure out how to do it almost 10 years ago, surely Mattel can figure it out today.

    And I'd still like to see an ab crunch, but I accept that it is incredibly unlikely to happen with the female MOTUC figures.

    Cheers.

    I actually am in the camp of "happy there is no ab crunch on the females".

    IMO, it ruined the DC Universe women... who all look anorexic.
    Teela is a beautiful figure just as she is. I don't think they need to change a thing.

    I think that some people aren't getting the point. If you go to the Fwoosh and read their review you will see that the waist joint is useless. Toyguru also confirmed this in an faq. In order to twist her waist they had to deform BADLY her dress and they did that just to show that there is an (unusable) waist joint under the dress. Doing that two or three times would probably result in the outfit being torn or permanently deformed.

    As for the ab crunch, most people are happy that she does NOT have one. There are a few (including the reviewers at the Fwoosh) who actually have hopes that Mattel might redesign the female body to include an ab crunch but imo that will fortunately not happen as it would cost them too much.

    What most people are asking is that, for future females, the dress is re-styled so that the waist joint which is already there can be used. Some are suggesting that this can be achieved with a softer dress (which imo wouldn't work at all) and others like me that the dress should be made of two pieces (skirt and top).

    But what's certain is that with the current style of the dresses the waist joint is totally useless. It is indeed good news that the joint is there under the dress but before that joint can be practically used to pose the figures in battle scenes the Horsemen or Mattel need to rethink their strategy as regards the female outfits.

    I was thinking the same thing

    Anyway, I don't like her face. She looks manly to me or something. Her jaw is too narrow.
    Obey the whip!

    I agree with Divia, I think that the face could have been softer. Maybe a little more make-up. The prototypes face was better. Then again, I don't really know until after I have her in my hands.

    This post is entirely IMHO only. I am also only going from the pictures.

    My view is she is a great figure as she is. She has more articulation than the original. I am happy with her face & body. She looks like Teela (8-Back art) to me. I like that she is a beautiful woman & not a pretty/cute girl. As a collector of fe-male action figures I can tell you Im sick of little girls & stripers. Could she be tweeked a little of course she could. I would have liked the twist & turn waist, her one hand posed flat like the original & to be able to set her in a more lady like way. However that is spliting hairs on a really terrific figure. Truthfully I will have her displayed standing anyway.
    We are getting a "corrected" He-man figure, if her figure sells well we may get a 2.0 version of her with minor adjustments as well.

    All my figures have had thier waist articulation pretty tight since He-Ro. I swear I thought I was going *snap!* something getting Webstor to move. Whatever it is that's making this so tough I hope matty looks into in it.

    Scareglow is the coolest action figure ever to grace the earth with his glowing light of fear and agony. He was the best glow-in-the-dark skeleton when I was little, and it looks like he's gona be the best once again!

    Oh, Zodak is awesome as well!

    Seriously though, Scareglow. OMG.

    I'n really impressed with scareglow. He's a figure i didn't really care for. But he's totally up there. That he glows in the dark is just too cool.


    Zodak is kinda a let down for me. I was pumped when i first saw him. But i'm disapointed his staff is basically 2 zodac guns glued on a lollypop stick and his gloes really stand out. I would rather have waited so he could have had man-e-faces/kronis hands on the gloves or something to help them match the boots better. And his tattoos not glowing in the dark is a massive let down. not to mention that if you put the zodac helmet side on, he clearly doesn't have a nose. The bump is closer to eye height. Zodac just looks even better next to zodak. He's the dark horse of the line that totally blew me away. I like that figure more and more

    Zodak looks a bit more plain to me in the comparasation pictures, but he's still a must have for me since I love to get more "Cosmic Enforcers" in my collection!

    Scare Glow looks even better than the proto from SDCC 2009!!!
    I'm really impressed and can't wait!!
    I also love the extra "Glow in the Dark" added text + pic on the side of the blister. 2 thumbs up for Mattel on this one!!!
