I don't think we'll see her until 2015. But I'd love to see her sooner.
"Skeletor to King Randor, Skeletor to King Randor, come in you Royal Boob!"
I hope Double Trouble comes with an attachable/removable Horde Emblem, like Shield Maiden Sherrilynn.
I'd also like to see her come with a unique crossbow. Perhaps one that looks like it would fire two bolts; a double shot!

She looks amazing.
I love her translucent cape and it seems her ponytail is turnable, at least it looks like it on the the fwoosh pictures since she is shown with the ponytail at the back but carded it is going down side ways.
It seems that she comes with two heads lets see if the helmet is removable and only the head underneath is bald
The boots are going to be reused for Sweet Bee i guess.

I didn't even notice that her cape was translucent, but very cool!

Huh, I just noticed that cape being translucent, too! I hadn't realized she was a production piece, as my first glimpse of her was on Matty's page. She looks amazeballs! Wish we could've gotten that kind of a cape for Frosta as well!

I love her, BUT I wish she had two heads, instead of her action feature. This limits her head/neck articulation (to none) and it changes her aesthetics too. It makes her neck area look weird and her face doesn't have the proper depth now. The prototype looks like they planned on two heads and looks amazing. In fact, you can see her head is slightly tilted on the prototype and her helmet doesn't go below her necklace. The production version, the helmet goes below her necklace and you can see there is no articulation.
I REALLY wish Mattel stayed true to their promise about this line: no action features that will interfere with articulation.
Her helmet could have plugged into the top of her head...just include a second, bald, head. That would have been SO much better.
I'm still really excited for her, but it does bum me out that her face, helmet and head were better before. I think it might be a Rueben/Matty Design change...

Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

While the limiting of her head's articulation isn't ideal, it's not like turning her head was going to do much good with that ginormous collar. I think the only gripe I have, and it's a minor one, is that I wish they'd gone with a brighter less pastel green
"I think it's time to admit the truth, I never grew out of wanting to be a vampire slayer... and probably never will"
Definitely a whole new neck sculpt from the 4H prototype.
no boot cut either, hope she has thigh articulation
Yeah, it's a shame that her necklace didn't end up as streamlined as it was in that prototype pic and turned out more like a bulky choker. Still, Double Trouble was one of those Great Rebellion girls that I feared wouldn't make the cut, along with Entrapta, so I'm really glad to see her coming soon. I just noticed the flip-over crossbow and translucent cape...Very nice touches!
Anyway, I look forward to adding her to my Great Rebellion display...Or will she show up with the Horde? Or will she be spying for the Eternian Royal Family? Or will she have some connection with King Hssss?! There are a lot of fun display options with her!
Can't. unsee. design. change. D'oh.
Why couldn't they make the choker/pearls part of her helmet (the bottom) a seperate thin plastic piece?

my feedback thread:
I got 2 gripes with her but i love they way she turned out.
1) First with her chest emblem, they really should have gone the way of they did with SSM. Have her chest emblem removable and have the small horde emblem pop in. Super easy and would have worked great. I mean the crossbow works, giving her an affliation with the horde the chest emblem would have made it better.
2) Again, where is her shield. Its a simple accessory and that was a staple for all POP Women, now we haven't gotten it for the Star Sisters, Glimmer and Double Trouble. And Castaspella and Frosta, who never had shields, both got some as MOTUC Figures.
Otherwise great figure, chocker a little bulky but I could live with it.
I agree that they shoulda stuck with the protohead, but I'm not completely disappointed. I mean, the design still kicks! She was one of my top choices when I looked through the PoP archive, and I'm still lookin' forward to getting her. I do wish she had a better weapon, but the dual crossbow IS clever and appreciated!

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
Looks like they made the sides of the helmet a little bit longer on the production figure vs the prototype.
http://thefwoosh.com/2014/06/masters...beyond-vintageHey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me
Wow, the head/helmet/neck on her is horrible, already calling this as one of the worst MOTUC of 2014.
I think Double Trouble (or Doublia or Doublecrossa or some other far better alternative to Double Mischief) looks good. Very good. The translucent cape is especially great.
My minor quibbles would be:
- something was lost in translation from proto-type to production with the choker and neck attachment;
- the skirt should have "slits" like BP She-Ra;
- a removable "Horde" symbol (e.g. arm band) would have been awesome;
- a PoP shield in the appropriate colours would have also been awesome, especially as according to the biography, Double Trouble is a "goodie";
- the plain arm bands/gauntlets should have had the sculpted detail from the original vintage toy; and
- those parts of the belt and collar which were holographic sticks on the original vintage toy should have had some stylised sculpted details (similar to MOTUC Bow's cape).
Doublecrossa is a cool twist. What happened to Double Trouble?
Who owns that name now? Marvel.

"So why Oo-Lar? The answer is simple. We really couldn't afford to put boots on He-Man, or sculpt exciting new bracers or armor components. We're just too broke. In a first for any figure- bare feet."
Love Double-Trouble!! I don't know why there is a name change here!!!
Please like my cool MOTU Universe FaceBook page at:
I like her! Definitely one of the best PoP so far. She's got this green archer forest thing going on. Hope the bio is good, bi polar beauty
Yeah, I was surprised by the Double Mischief name too...But it looks like Skylanders owns the Double Trouble name now:
