    Evil-Lyn's staff: display long or short?

    With everyone having long staves, I'm torn whether to display Evil-Lyn with the short wand (classic), or very long scepter.

    Do you guys have any plans for how you'll display her?

    Definitely the short one. I do not like the look of the long one. Something's...off with it.

    The short one looks awesome though! Couldn't be happier with it!

    From the pictures, it did look crooked. Like it was bent or not popped into place properly.

    I agree with Darkspecter – the staff just seems off/wrong to me.

    I’ll be using the scepter in my display for sure. Besides, it’s classic!

    I agree. I like the short wand for the classic yellow Evil Lyn.

    With the long staff, they were going for the 200X look...but I think the problem with the staff is, it's about 1 1/2 to 2 inches too long and the crystal ball is too small for it. The crystal ball is the perfect size for the wand though.

    So, when we get 200X Evil-Lyn, I hope we get a new, larger crystal ball head.

    We were able to see from pictures that the long staff tends to bend (or was already bent in the box).

    That's why I'll display Evil Lyn with the 80's shorter staff, which seems not to bend so easily.

    I'm still not sure if I would buy that sick Evil-lyn, but I never liked the short wand. Not only in her case. So I would display her with the long staff.

    I'm giving Classic Evil-Lyn the short wand.

    The 200x figure will use the longer staff (when they make her).

    I'm with RocketPunch. Vintage colored Evil-Lyn will be sporting the shrot handle in my collection, and when they release the 200x inspired one, she'll be utilizing the long staff in my collection display.

    We haven't heard anything, but I'm thinking no. The original prototype one shown in ToyFare magazien and Lee's probably would have. The powder blue was what the original toy was cast in. Now this Lyn has the metallic silver-blue paint. The onlt thing that could possibly glow in the dark would be her crystal ball or the lighter blue highlights.

    I'll be displaying mine with the scepter as well. I think the scepter adds more distinction to her character, as a lot of the other characters have staffs, too.

    When I get the 200x version though, I'll probably use the staff.

    The staff looks crooked somehow. I hope it will not be like that when the figure gets released.

    As for me, the classic wand is a must!

    But then, I''m planning to open 2 anyway!
