    Pictures over here -> http://i.toynewsi.com/g/generated/Ma...scaled_600.jpg reveal the swords ARE removable, AND show what appears to be a twist waist!

    The tentacles had better not rot like Snout Spout's!

    Other than that...I'm VERY happy. VERY VERY VERY HAPPY!! I wasn't expecting this reveal AT ALL. It was just the thing to counteract my negative feelings regarding this line. June will be a LONG wait, but if they pull her off correctly, as they appear to be doing, it'll be worth it.

    HOLY COW - OCTAVIA!!! It's such a nice thing to see



    YEEEEEE-HAWWWWWW!!!

    Come on...they have to bend. She can't wrap up other figures in them otherwise, or pose in a dynamic position. That would be really disappointing and a huge lost opportunity.

    Really hoping the tentacles won't break like Snout Spout's trunk.
    Also hoping the tentacles won't fall out like Slush Head's tentacles do.
    I'm reading that the tentacles aren't bendy? That wouldn't make much sense with her.
    She looks good to me otherwise.

    My favorite of the reveals, big on my wish list. Now all I need is Scorpia and Huntara.

    I'm not a POP fan, but I have to admit that Octavia figure is one o the coolest looking figures out there. June will be definitely a long wait...

    Her hair looks amazing and so does her face(from the pictures it seems her head isnīt put down completely, at least compared to the panel pictures or the ad we got from Matty per Email).

    It was said somewhere that the next female has the new improved bug so i guess thatīs it now and characters like Glimmer, Angella, Shokoti or Scorpia will have that look. I like that thought. Would be great for NA mini comic Sorceress by the way....

    Her crossbow looks amazing, i love the squid the color is a weird choice but hey, itīs MOTU after all.

    Woooohoooo!

    I think she is awesome awesome awesome! Cannot wait to get her!

    My only critique is that her neck seems a bit too long? Is this for the hair & to still allow articulation?? Does anyone else see this?

    I do hope her tentacles are not bendy! I would rather them stiff and can swivel than have them slowly fall apart & crack.

    I don't think the head is placed properly. It's a hand painted prototype.

    It dosent look like the head has the ball joint hole yet....I'm hoping so its just sitting on top of the neck.

    Her face is PERFECT! I so hope it does not get altered too much!

    I think she's still at the stage where her head is just stuck onto the neck using putty.

    Again, thanks for the pics. She looks awesome. Kind of a pretty face for a cold blooded fish/octopus lady
    Wicked crossbow. Well done.

    Hard or Bendy!?

    She looks amazing, but her tentacles have to be flexible. Mattel is more than capable of making bendy parts, just look at King Hiss. All they need to do is use that material and she'll turn out brilliantly.

    She has a waist twist. The tentacles aren't bendy but they are ball jointed.

    Hordak's heels had a spike too but his Classics figure didn't. If they can make a new foot that has that little spike, cool, but these are pretty good for Classics standard for reused parts. I mean Optikk didn't have the original chains wrapped around his ankles in Classics, but he turned out pretty good.

    I really hope they stay with the ball joints. I really think we will get tons of poses out of them (you can switch them around and what-not) and not have to worry about her getting tentacle rot!

    Okay but what does her back look like?

    How do you attach the tentacles with all that hair? It looks like her hair covers her whole back.

    Oh and!

    How cool would it be to cut off that squid-monster off the bow and turn it into her hand (painting it green to match her skin tone).

    Probably my favourite reveal as well. Snake Face is awesome but a POP Horde member....

    I wish they would have done all the Horde crossbows that size, our looks so much better. One of my CAC entries was a Horde zombie samurai character that had an oni mask crossbow.

    I may get 2 of her to use the tunic to make a Force Captain Adora.

    Scorpia boots are different. They have sharp edges in the heel part and don't have the Horde symbol.
    They have to put more black around her eyes.

    However that is a good point about the lack of a horde symbol on Scorpia's boots, although honestly her boots should have had them IMO (and I thought for sure I saw them on her in some episodes, but I see a lot of pics without them on the web now too).

    Octavia looks great.

    The torso/hips look longer and leaner than the standard female MOTUC buck. Is this the new buck going forward. I kind of like the bulkier buck we have received to date, but the slimmer buck will suit characters like Glimmer and Scorpia.

    It's a shame that Octavia's tentacles aren't bendy, but at least I don't have to worry about them falling apart if used. And I hope they sit in her back better than Slush Head's tentacles.
