    looking at the pics it could have been done with 3 snips of a pair of scissors, is it something that should be fixed yes. is it annoying to most filmation/pop fans yes. is it plausible a fan could do it without someone seeing yes!

    like many of you i dislike the flap but at this point given that in 2 years we will have all vintage and most a-listers ithink mattel would rather hold of on creating brand new parts untill they see the line lasting beyond the vintage

    Look at Octavia's crotch and Glimmer's crotch and Scorpia's crotch: They are entirely original pieces! Mattel is making new casts for every single one of them!

    That argument doesn't hold water.

    Are people still going on about this crotch thing. Glimmer looks amazing and the crotch been like that does not ruin the whole figure.

    ...um yeah people are still "going on" about Mattel's inability to handle basic human anatomy (when they so choose).

    This issue needs further investigation and some real answers from Mattel before I personally would consider it ready to be 'put to bed'. The fans have proven an ability to move mountains with this line and yet a chorus of requests to fix this issue go unanswered, with replies of; "this is as good as it gets guys"?? How is this even possible? I'm about ready to call borderline conspiracy here as it seems like some mandate from on high preventing these skirts from being able to be a normal length. Like some manager in Mattel stating these can't be shorter because it invalidates some perception of decency mandates for the company. Not kidding here either. This has some deeper meaning other than Matty simply deciding to be immobile on the topic.

    Consider this; our dollars literally fund this line which should put a certain amount of 'voting' power in our corner, and yet on this issue--- nope. What is truly at work here? Call us a bunch of crotch fixated fans if you like, but this needs true resolution IMHO.

    Over at Mattyīs forum i asked about Two Bads, Moduloks and Glimmers preview sample and if they are sent out.

    Do you want to guess which one of these three hasnīt been sent out because the factory didnīt send out a sample….

    guess…




    yes…




    here it comes…









    The other were sent out already and the Fwoosh already posted the Two Bad review
    *Peekablue *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Queen Veena *Calix *Hawke *Pebblass(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

    Thanks for the info Niki. When a movie director doesn't believe in his film, he blocks reviews until the film is released. I know the skirt issue was a big one, but I really think those who want Glimmer will buy her regardless.

    Really disappointed at how Matty/Mattel has fallen apart in only a few months. Everything was going so well in the beginning of the year. Now everything is back to being awful. Shipping, sales, glitches...everything is a mess again.

    Doom and gloom!! Dooooom and glooooommmmm!!! How many times have the samples been sent out after the figure's release and everything is just fine? I mean, really. We still have until February 17th, over 2 months away. What next? Will they still claim that Extendar cannot hold his lance?

    I am very much looking forward to Glimmer, so I was hoping she would be included in this round of previews when they arrived. BUT… Modulok was not either, so there is still time to see both of them before February. Hopefully it will happen.

    Yes, they only sent out Two Bad and Hydron since those were they only ones they got as samples. That actually helped with my disappointment a little bit until i saw that link, posted at the Modulok thread dated 14th of december:

    http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/m...match-madness/

    How many Moduloks where used for that?

    about six moduloks... based on the green heads shown. Probably more.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I saw the review...figure looks pretty good. Her face is a bit 'butter', but overall the figure is nice.

    Just found it and it is from I don't want to get banned.

    Perhaps employed by Mattel Germany? Perhaps Mattel Germany hooks him up like US does Dan and the Fwoosh? I didn't see anything in the rules that said we couldn't post a link...If this is a rule I'm unaware of, then my apologies] ... Perhaps he works for the factory?


    I am officially bummed that we are not getting short and long staff shafts like Evil-Lyn got.
    Bonus short wand as an item with future figure mayhaps?

    I'm confused...Well I don't "Sprechen" the German so "no duh" I'm confused.

    What did he say about dumpy crotch!!?! It looked fixed, then I saw arrows. then it looked broken again.
    Nevermind that was a copped photo of the custom that Mr. E Scissors made from NYCC pointing out how bad dumpy crotch is.
    dammit, I had hope for a second.

    I think she looks gorgeous! The flap stinks, but I think I'll get used to it. Love the paints and the way her face turned out.

    There are people who have the 'inside track' or connections, so it's possible the individual got one that way. There was a guy at NYCC that already had a few Castle Grayskull playsets (not for sale, but he had access to them months ago). I actually don't mind, because we get first looks at the hot items!

    They wrote he bought them and got the figures not directly from mattel, so I am not sure it is allowed, thats why I dont post a Link.

    Excellent avatars dudes and/or Dudettes. Flutterina was always the prettiest girl in the Great Rebellion. She was the first girl I ever truly loved. (I was 4, so it wasn't anything strange or nothing...)

    Itīs funny to hear a review in german iīm so used to PIXEL DANs reviews.

    I like that review. He is pointing out that her leotard is different from the prototype version and in the same sentence he changes the word for pants into skirt without noticing it. He is right it is more like a skirt now. So i canīt blame him

    In this review comparing the figure with the FILMATION screen shots itīs very obvious that they changed her outfit colors from magenta into purple and toning down her pink colored hair

    Iīm so looking forward to her, thanks for that review!

    I love Flutterina actually, one of my most sought after PoP figures. I hope they get a production version soon so I can replace my Avatar pic.

    As for Glimmer's real name. I bet it will be something like Kira, or Cara, or something with an 'a' on the end. Or maybe Toyguru might choose something related to jewelry like Crystal or Opal. As long as they don't change Angella's name, I will be fine. Angella is actually a decent "real" name!

    Glimmer's real name is Glimmer

    Her bio was shown a while back, at Comikizee (or however you spell that) I believe. I'll look for the image.

    Found it!

    I am glad that they didn't give her a "real name".

    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    What?!?! Did the reviewer imply that Loo-Kee and Filmation Kowl were "bonus" accessories with Glimmer? Or were they reviewed separately to Glimmer?
