    Cornboy has confirmed on FB

    The tentacles won't be bendy. Her head isn't pushed all the way down in that pic.
    and

    She's pretty hot for a green chick with fin ears and male pattern baldness.

    I absolutely LOVE Octavia and am VERY excited she's coming!!!!

    I REALLY hope they make her tentacles out of the same material as King Hiss. She NEEDS this material, so she can capture her victims in her tentacles. It's her entire gimmick! If she was made in the 80's, I GUARANTEE you, that would be her action feature. There was a Hercules figure that was an octopus-like woman in the 90's, and she had the bendy material tentacles, so you could capture Hercules, just like on the live-action TV show.

    Octavia was in TWO episodes of She-Ra and in each one, she used her tentacles to capture her victims. Sea Hawk and Sproker:





    When I learned she was coming with a crossbow at work, I groaned a bit because I wish she came with her freezing sticks (pictured below) and because NONE of the Horde women have crossbows (Catra, Entrapta, Scorpia, Double Trouble, etc.), but now that I'm home and can see the crossbow...I have to say...that thing is pretty damn sweet and I'm glad they created it! The end is also a PURPLE octopus, which I think may be an homage to the original figure concept Octopus Woman, which eventually turned into Octavia! How cool is that?!



    Maybe we can get the freezing sticks in the future somehow? I can't complain though. This girl is LOADED DOWN with accessories. This is one happy PoP fan right here!

    I LOVE the added detail to her Horde symbol on her chest (to make it more like the MOTU toys, and not the Filmation Horde) and I love the detail on her belt. She's a great update from animated design to toy. A+

    Also, the 4 Horsemen actually made her look pretty! She didn't look too pretty on the show. I like her being pretty better. Just because she's a "monster" doesn't mean she can't be a hottie.

    I think this is a great sculpt. I can't wait to add her to the shelf! Even if she can't grip anything with her arms, she still more interesting than stratos and some of the other more "boring" characters.

    OMG, Stratos could probably hold one of her swords, actually! They have the half-circle thing on them (like Buzz-Off's axe). That might be a cool accessory for Stratos. Like he defeated a Horde member and took on his weapon.

    She looks fantastic. I would love to see her come with the black shadowing around her eyes being a bit bolder and more in the shape of her Filmation likeness and with her two freeze sticks and exploding white star. I think thats the only thing that could be done to make her look even better. Well done Mattel/4H/Scott. You have all done a great job here. :-)

    Also the more I look at the picture of her without her tenticals in the more I am thinking her body would make the perfect base for a true Horde Force Captin Adora. It would be a great way to reuse all the tooling spent on her body a year or two down the.line. People would defo pick up HFC Adora . She is one of the most requested variants.

    Scorpia has a really nice belt with the form of the Horde symbol. It's a great design.

    Octavia looks amazing I'm in shock that she not only looks like she came right out of the She-Ra cartoon but that she's coming in 2013. Really glad they have done her before Scorpia also, I think Scorpia would be a sure bet for 2014 but I don't think Octavia would have been if we had seen Scorpia revealed yesterday. Love the squid Horde bow that's very cool, she really is looking perfect.

    Octavia's inclusion now means that there are only 2 Horde females left to get Scorpia and Entrapta so the Horde females are close to been complete.

    One improvement I would like to see on Octavia, is more black around the eyes. I want it to be more defined too like in the cartoon.

    It is, but she can wear the symbol in more than one place. Quite a few Horde characters have the symbol on their shins as well as their chests.

    Octavia is to me the best reveal out of three fantastic reveals. Everything fits fantastic together. I also would love to see more black around her eyes. As of now she looks too sweet. So happy to see her.

    Octavia looks phenomenal - I too would like a bit more black eye shadow for her, ala the Filmation design. She's a bit like the anti-Zorro.

    As for the tentacles, I'd also prefer bendy ones - or if they can't do that to have them resculpted to be more bunched up. They seem to drift too far out.

    Totally my favourite reveal from the show.

    I really do hope Scott finds a way to get us some awesome variants later on. Force Captain Adora would be one of the top concepts I'd be excited for, and this Octavia figure presents a full body that can be repainted to make a perfect Force Captain Adora Concept Figure!

    The parts re-use for these figures can really get us some characters and variants we might not otherwise see realized.

    I wonder if more black around the eyes would make her look better. Can someone photo shop the pic so we can get an idea of what she would look like?

    Okay, with the reveal of Octavia I may have a new favourite figure... Once I get that beauty in my hands it'll be confirmed, I think.

    Yes, please, in the prototypoe the black is just an eye makeup. It should be almost like a small mask.

    Can't believe they made her before Scorpia, but a great maneuver on their part to make sure she's included in the line. Three great green reveals yesterday!!!!!!! Can't Wait!!!!

    Sorry to be "that guy" but don't thank Scott/Mattel until AFTER it makes it through the factory. Right, Frosta? I am keeping my Optimism cautious.

    I totally get where you are coming from...perticularly after the mess that has been made of Frosta. But as one of those fans who really does focus on the POP girls I am normally one of the first to voice any concerns or issues I find displeasing on these figures. As of this point she looks amazing so it's nice to be able to focus on the positive and give Mattel and the 4H some praise...so far they have done a great job. Hopefully there will be no / few issues with her as she moves foward into production. Fingers crossed.

    Her face is PERFECT! I so hope it does not get altered too much!
    Not to be annoying...but I always liked that she looked less "pretty" than the other Horde girls. In fact, I always felt the original Frosta face sculpt would be perfect for Octavia, with it's larger pouty lips and bulging eyes.

    As it stands, Octavia looks prettier than Frosta! Now THERE'S a switch!

    Sorry to be "that guy" but don't thank Scott/Mattel until AFTER it makes it through the factory. Right, Frosta? I am keeping my Optimism cautious.
    Yeah, I'm with you. If they'd revealed her last year, when my overall faith in the line was stronger, I'd be totally flipping out right now and doing cartwheels. Instead, my joy is tempered by the fact that anything can change - price, sculpt, accessories and most important...quality of construction!

    I wonder if more black around the eyes would make her look better. Can someone photo shop the pic so we can get an idea of what she would look like?
    I'd also like to see that But I hope they don't go overboard - it's not a mask on her face...just some stylized dark circles.

    I really do hope Scott finds a way to get us some awesome variants later on. Force Captain Adora would be one of the top concepts I'd be excited for, and this Octavia figure presents a full body that can be repainted to make a perfect Force Captain Adora Concept Figure!
    I thought the exact same thing Only, I'd love it for the "Horde" portions on a 2nd Adora figure to be removable, so we still end up with a "regular" Adora underneath. This figure has the right kind of briefs and a twist waist - two things sorely lacking in the 1st Adora.

    "The tentacles won't be bendy. Her head isn't pushed all the way down in that pic."
    That is so, so disappointing to hear. And a cop-out. YOU CAN DO IT MATTEL!

    And also...YAY! Octavia is coming!

    Yeah...if they're just long and droopy as they currently appear to be...it's gonna suck, big time!

    I'm not even saying they have to be able to make full loops around other characters....just "U" around them, for angry hugs
