I disagree that all of the females faces look the same. The only ones that seem similar to me are Sorceress and Teela (mother/daughter) and Catra and Marlena have very similar bone structure.
    Yes agreed on how rushed this new frosta looks. I have no problem if they all look similar. They all look good to me. That's why I've been collecting them.

    Thumbs UP! for Frosta!

    I think she looks FROST-ASTIC!!

    (...sorry if that wasn't the first time that term was used, as I have not read through the previous pages of this thread )

    I'm sorry guys, but I just find this whole discussion rather funny. Every year we go through this - there are always a few sculpts showed off that are too late to do anything bu minor deco changes, and one figure that was completely rushed for the unveiling and of which Mattel or the 4HM warn will be heavily improved. And yet every year the fandom freaks out over that one figure that is going to get heavily retooled. Frosta is that figure for 2012. My advice too everyone is to take a deep breath and remember the 4HM are going to do a lot more with the sculpt, starting with the head they said they going to rework.

    If nine hundred He-Man.Org members get eaten by Thundercats fans, but neither of them has a toyline, does it still count as a fan movement?

    So, do we know that the steel mold hasn't been made yet?, I only have one issue in regard to the face, the bottom of the top lip, I think the center looks like an up-side down arrow head, and sort of unnatural, but still I love the fig (including face) and I'd buy her as it is.

    But if they can change the top lip, better yet.

    Let me just say that I am so proud of us for scrutinizing a character we care for!

    The hair: the best I have seen. Please remember they painted over the linework, so she is unfinished in that regard. First time the long hair didn't look clumpy. My friend said it best: her hair looks combed. Comparing it to Adora is bad to me, since Adora's hair is shaped OK, but doesn't fall like it does in Filmation like Frosta's does. I know the pictures say alot, but in person, she looked great!

    I will say her wand could stand to be 1/3 shorter and the rod light blue matching the wheel. I like the toy design, but they added bolts. Though a device, I would prefer her magic wand looking less "mechanical". You can't say it's inaccurate, and folks wanted more PoP elements.

    I will they this: they heard the fans on certain deco and received the constructive feedback. ;-) Let's just send positive energy their way.


    I hope the shield looks like an ice construct.

    Also a question: the snowflake design is in the center of her belt. Should it be decoed somehow to stand out from the belt like the vintage toy? Would that be too busy? I would prefer the dress/belt cast in clear blue and the dress and belt painted minus the snowflake to look jewel-like. Prism Stickers are cheap and 80s. My brother reminded me that the dress should be white since hip movement may rub the paint.

    Should the snowflake be pearlescent or metallic blue? Feedback?

    I hope the 4h will listen to us and give her a lighter blue hair. Or at least have a poll to see if we want lighter or darker hair, plus a poll to decide if the newer style or more older normal classics style head sculpt we all prefer. It would be very interesting to see which one wins out. It seems really mixed at this point.

    I think her belt needs to have just the very outter seam in the darkblue to really pop out the pearlised light blue in the belt.

    I really think, if it is not already (it looks it to me) the inner part of the belt (with the scroll work) should be in a peralised paint (in homage to the hologram sticker).

    I really think, her lower capes should be frosted! OR I have really been thinking about the pearlized paint (in tribute to the shimmer fabric that was her cape in toy form). I'm thinking happy medium (Filmation & Toy)...

    The only thing (if they would change the head sculpt) I would change in the head sculpt is the lips. I think they did great on the cheek bones but the lips take too much attention. Make the lips smaller and her head will really come out. Her Filmation character may look alittle alienish???? in MOTUC head form. lol

    Oh look...2 cents on the floor.

    If they can pull this off without paint-app disasters, I say do it!! That would be VERY cool!!

    Yes shrink the lips and she won't look as old in my 2 cents. It will make her look much better too.

    There shouldn't be sculpt changes at this point.. I wouldn't cling to that so fiercely. There are characters that merit a second head. Frosta wouldn't be one of them. Glimmer, sure. But budget plus design mandates PoP be an amaglamed style. For 2012, expect budget cuts not seen before. Even Spector lost accessories.

    And what is a "normal Classics style head sculpt we all prefer"? I prefer the head we got greatly. It was obviously a paint issue. For me, I reserve judgement there.

    PoP figures I think will always be under intense scrutiny, but debate is healthy. For what it's worth, folks love Bow but I thought he was poorly-executed with the armor/cape/quiver, plus the small arrow. Go figure.

    It's Filmation-accurate to me. Frosta doesn't have the lump layered strands characters like She-Ra, Catra, Castaspella, etc. My fear was that she would get the clumpy locks She-Ra got (which makes me think of their Wonder Woman execution) when in fact, Frosta's hair is straight and always depicted at one length.It shouldn't be windblown or clumpy or layered, and I am grateful that aesthetic was nailed just right. It seems to come down to style preference. I do prefer what we got. I would love to see a She-Ra variant tackled the same way.

    I would have loved a closed-mouth snickered expression haha. Much more indicative of the character.

    Hey Frosta fans! I think I found a great Ice blast accessory for her. At least, I'm going to be using it. I recently got the newest Thor figure from the Avengers line. He has one of the dorky gimmick weapons. This one is a missile launcher that launches his hammer. The cool thing is, around the launcher is softer plastic is a "lightning" effect. It's dark blue and transparent. With a couple scissor snips this is free of the launcher. And I think it makes a VERY cool ice effect! Until Frosta arrives, Shadow Weaver is borrowing it for an energy effect...

    I agree that the Frosta reveal has me a little worried... its fine she's gonna be touched up, but in all honesty her whole head needs resculpting. Paint application changes won't fix her for me. If this is gonna be it going forward I'm not confident about subscribing to an whole years worth of figures in 2013 I just hope when the updated Frosta is revealed, she looks much more like Eamon's alteration.
    10 figures I'd like: 10/Filmation Tung Lashor, 9/Saurod, 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 6/Peekablue, 5/Hunga the Harpy, 4/Sssqueeze, 3/Filmation Clawful, 2/Dylamug, 1/Queen Angella.

    I may be opening a can of worms... but what is wrong with Evillyn exactly? I really like the BG Evillyn version. I'm sure that eventually there will be a 200X version, and after hearing the reasoning as to why they made her the way they did on a RG Podcast, it makes sense.

    Even if she's not the pure 200X design, BG Evillyn is one of my favorites

    I just picked up one of these at Wal-mart today that was on clearance, simply because as soon as I saw it I told myself "Those weapons would be perfect for Frosta/Blue Mer-Man/potentially Icer/potentially Ice Armor He-Man!".

    Also, they re-used the tool for Beast Boy's bird form for the MOTUC bird quartet; why couldn't they re-use some of the DCU weapon sculpts in this line as well?
