    Since Scott isn't going to tell the truth I'll do it for him-

    This isn't the first Frosta head that was sculpted by a long shot, I'm ASSUMING that Scott got angry she was leaked and had them use a different take on her look as the original one I saw looked ENTIRELY different although it wasn't fully painted so that may be why?

    That's a pretty poor response from Toyguru.

    Sometimes I have to wonder how he can be so oblivious to the likely ... interpretation of some of his responses to paying customers.

    I'm hopeful that what he really meant was something along the lines of: I only just saw Frosta at NYTF. I had no input into the face design. It would be best to raise this issue directly with the Four Horsemen before they provide Mattel with the "final" proto-type for production. I will also raise this issue with the Four Horsemen. Thanks for providing the comparison image as it will help to inform our final decision.

    If that's indeed what happened, that's beyond immature.

    That might be the most insulting reply from Toyguru. I know the guy can be blunt or unsympathetic, but jesus, that is some rude ****...

Sure she could use a little more eye-shadow and a little less eyeliner but this is a prototype, iirc. She'll be a knockout once we see her at SDCC.
    I agree. She's PERFECT to me! She's way sexier than the androgynous faces we've been getting (Catra being the exception)

    What?! How are any of the female faces androgynous?! *scratches head* After the exceptionally feminine and beautiful face sculpts we saw on Tallstar and Starla (some of the 4H's best female faces EVER, in my opinion), I'm even more perplexed.

    All the paint touch-ups in the world won't change the fact that she has the cheeks of a chipmunk. This head needs a new mold, complete with eyes that are slanted more like the Filmation likeness.

    Without more proof I'll take this with a grain of salt, no offence Vertigoink. If this is in fact true, this action would the most hideous example of petty spite.

    Verty posted a pic that showed Frosta's hair on a work table. I do believe it was seen.

    Yah, Frosta!

    I love the lips. The lady wore too much eye liner, though. She must have sat down in the same Mac counter chair as Queen Marlena.

    But the eyes are at least big. I can see in the design the effort to make a unique female face. I also like the little wrinkle next to her smile. Except for the coal black smudged eyes, she looks good.

    Oh I know, I saw it, very small.

    What I was questioning was if there are different heads and TG purposely used the lest attractive as "revenge" for spoilers/leaks.

    maybe she's getting a second head and that's a surprise ... I mean, not a lot accessories come with her ... so a second head could be it ... I know it's WAY optimistic, but that face is just wrong.

    Maybe it's also the first face by that 5th horsemen ... it's just so different from the other female faces.

    Yeah, I get that same anime vibe when I look at her eyes. Hopefully, it's just a badly rushed paint job in regards to her eyes.

    Her lips on the other hand, are abnormal looking.

    The head is a train wreck. But I'm pretty confidant the finished product will be fine and consistant with the other female faces.

    Her face sculpt is a big disappointemnt to me. But what shown was just a prototype, the final version could be improved.

    I severely doubt a head was redone because of a leak, especially one where photos were not made public. It doesn't make any sense to me. The thing that was "spoiled" was the character itself, not the sculpt. In the slight chance that something was ever done out of spite like that, it would just be to not show the figure or something along those lines, which didn't happen.

    The sculpt itself looks totally fine, I think. The paint could maybe be a bit tighter. I'll make a baseless assumption and say that maybe since she's among the later figures in the year, the proto was probably rushed just to have something to show in time for NYTF and hopefully the paint can be tightened up before it's sent off to production. People are talking, there's plenty of time. We saw 2 figures at the show that had tweaked based on fan feedback.

    Yeah I think she looks fine in this pic.

    I really like the lips and all she needs is less black eye liner. I still think she needs a shield also.

    *****! I didn't see this one. Now I'm really sad at what we could have had. This is EXACTLY what I wanted for Frosta. Toy boots, Licensing Kit collar for the cape, toy bracelets and toy sticker. The rest is Filmation and that's okay. Perfect hybrid and compromise.

    I agree! She looks good there! It's the one realllllll close up of her face that makes her look like she has big hyper anime eyes and/or too much hooker makeup. She looks perfect from a step back rather than all up in her grill.

    Regardless, I'm satisfied with her.

    I'd heard that her gauntlets were sculpted like the toy (as seen in Emiliano's design), and that the cape was a bit more toy influenced as well... maybe the proto isn't finished... I'd heard finishing her was a close call (which may be why the face isn't perfect).

    Maybe she'll get one... There was some talk of that at Toy Fair apparently.

    I hope this is just a prototype and that they make her cape more shimmery/translucent like a silver/blue icy version of Jewelstar's. The plain blue cape looks boring.

    Especially when you consider that in her original mini-comic in the 80's, her cape was magical and gave her magic powers. It should look ethereal and otherworldly, not like she just borrowed Randor's cape.
