    Remember when Mattel used to send samples BEFORE the figure went on sale?

    Peppridge Farms does.

    Dan still has not received his Beastman Sub, I'm getting mine today and I did not sub, I just bought it on Monday.
    You guys that Sub are getting shafted, really looking forward to Dan's review of fur face.

    Haven't opened Crita yet, and didn't even think about the shawl. Kind of a bummer but still like the overall look of the figure.

    All the people who gave you a hard time when you were brand manager failed to realise that unlike the rest of Mattel, you actually cared about this line. Since you left it seems nobody there does and explains QC issues like Critas Cape, the lack of early access for last year's sdcc items and the King Hsss torso debacle. I for one, miss you running the show.

    Applause.


    I still like the reviews,even late. I don't open my figures so this is great for me,plus if I ever do,I need dans videos for explaining the extra accessories. I hope super7 gets samples to Dan.

    Good review and like PIXEL DAN said Crita in this look is pretty much a statue. A good looking one but it shows why Mattel decided back in the 90-ties to change her look to make it more action figure like.

    And as PIXEL DAN said a removable cape would have been a good idea.

    This unpractical flaw aside i´m happy that we finally got a Crita figure. Classics is the gift that keeps on giving

    I wonder how easily the glue keeping the cloak in place is removable?

    I cut the shawl in half in the back, just slit it right up the center. She how has two hanging pieces...it doesn't look terrible, but it may not be for everyone. I am going to post a pic of this later on to show everyone.

    Man I've not opened this figure yet because I was hoping for her in the Battle Armor/Queen version, but that cape is really limiting and I'm not an articulation nut either. Makes me wonder if the 4HM intended it to be removable?

    Thanks for the review Dan. I only collected my Crita and Despara yesterday and have not yet opened them. Crita may end up being my favorite NA figure as she doesn't look NA space-futuristic. She could fit in perfectly on Eternia.

    It does seem a shame the 4 Horsemen or Mattel designed the shawl in this limiting way. How could they forget what had clearly been done so well with Shadow Weaver.

    I hope when I open my Crita, the whip-sceptre hasn't bled gold paint onto the back of the shawl as happened to Dan's.

    I just cut the cape off. Shame but I didn't see any other option. Now I can get some great poses out of her with that gun (which reminds me of Vasquez gun in Aliens).
    I would have preferred the outfit she wore near the end of the series as it fits in better with the other mutants and their more armored look but she's still a great figure.
    Hope we get more NA but I don't think super7 are going to have it as a priority due to their preference for nostalgia.

    Mine had the paint bleed but a little rubbing alcohol will take it off.

    I wish Dan had noted the new 360degree ankle articulation.
    He also missed mentioning the unpainted earring sculpt on his figure.

    This is exactly why I love this figure. I'm not a New Adventures hater at all, but I like the fact she looks like she could fit in anywhere.

    I had the exact same paint blotch that Pixel Dan did on his figure. Very disappointed in the execution of Crita, the worthless arm articulation doesn't even let you pose her using the whip. I did manage to get the gun over her shoulder, just fed it through the back of her hair and that looks pretty good. Just wish she didn't have that stupid cape.
    Happily invading Castle Grayskull with hippos is my true hobby.
