    Totally love Netossa, she's easily in my top 5 most wanted POP characters. I never had her as a kid but her character design is strong and with her been black she totally stands out over all the other POP girls as she's unique.

    I also have her vintage figure MOC and it's beautiful, one of the best vintage POP figures IMO. Netossa will look stunning in MOTUC.

    Yeah, this is one of the ones that stood out when I was browsing the .org's archive of figures. I like the colors, and though the net is kinda boring, I think all she needs is one new accessory to bring her home. Maybe a sword, or something. I know I saw an awesome fanart of her somewhere in the fanart forum; that artist had given her a sword that matched her design, and I think it made all the difference.

    Anyway, Netossa is up there with some of my favorites, completely based on looks alone (since I've never seen the toon or had any of the toys).

    She and Spinnerella were actually pictured on some cardbacks with Starburst She-Ra's sword (or Bubble Power She-Ra's sword) in different colours!

    They didn't get the swords though. Netossa's was blue...and Spinnerella's was the darker pink.

    I think since she has a net and her whole thing is catching baddies up in it, a hunter like her could look bad-ass with a nice spear to round out that look.

    I found a cardback with the swords! Her shield is also shown as blue, instead of white!

    I can't @ the foreign "die Star Sisters" on that cardback.

    Definitely want the swords to come with with Netossa and Spinny. Mattel was probably cutting corners back in the day because the line was tanking.

    Probably. I'd like to see them have the swords as well! White shield, blue sword for Netossa (or both the same colour depending on how they cast the weapons...we don't need another Sy-Klone shield incident! ). The colours they don't use would be cool additions to a Weapons Pak.

    I agree, I would like to see her with a jeweled variation of Randor's spear or possibly a nice blue knife

    If neither of those then definitely a sword, I always feel cheated that her and Spinny did not get swords (though to be fair Spinnerella got the awesome spinning base)

    Netossa is My favorite POP character - after She-Ra, of course. I am SO looking forward to getting her in the MOTUC line. I was so happy when it was revealed here that she had been trademarked.

    I agree that she should come with the blue sword. I also hope she comes with two heads - one that looks like the cowled vintage figure's head, and the second that looks like the Style Guide design.

    My brotha from anotha motha, you could not have said it better!! In my canon, Netossa is the niece of Dekker, and the cousin of Clamp Champ. They are both tracker/hunters.

    Yes, JonWes' art was the one I was thinking of! Love the look of that sword. Zodak74 Did mention the idea of a spear, though, like a hunter would carry (since she has a net) and I like that idea as well! A spear would look good with the design, I think.

    However, with the idea that she was supposed to come with a blue version of that sword...that could be a plan too! I mean, it's obvious that the sword is sort of a "shadow" of the power sword, but it could easily be sculpted in such a way that it could be it's own sword. And, honestly, I think she could be the one to come with it. Unless they wana repaint it and give it to others as well...depends on how unique it ends up looking.

    This reminds me of the Sinbad episode I watched last night! Rongar (the black character) was kidnapped and when his crew went to rescue him they yelled "he's our brother!" and there's a second of awkward silence and the other character goes "we had different mothers!" and I lol'd. It was a good episode.

    I think it would be alright for Netossa and Spinnerella to come with that sword (even if they turn it into a dagger) because it looks different than the Filmation Sword of Protection we got and the Toy Sword of Power that was confirmed to be coming with She-Ra 2.0:

    Makes sense to me! Since they decided to do She-Ra's toy sword and they've already done Catra's Kitty Cutter (that's what I'm calling it anyway) then it makes sense to make that sword as well. Wonder how it could be done? I'm thinking that shiny part in the center should be a translucent crystal or something...

    IMO the Style Guide version is WAY better than the Toy or even Filmation versions.

    I think the sticker will become a jewel. They did that for Catra's aword.

    ...but...the Style Guide version IS the toy version! Look at her coloured picture with the Bubble Carriage. That's from the Style Guide. The only slight difference is she doesn't have the silver mesh draped in front in the "U" shape.

    Actually, If you look a little closer at the detai, you will notice that the toy is much more busy than the Style Guide and the headpiece is different.

    I just realized that the Toy Versions Headpiece is like 1960's Scarlett Witch, While The Style Guide headpiece is like Modern Scarlett Witch!

    I don't know...I think it's pretty darn close. One thing the Style Guide did differently from the toy, is they put the silver things on her head! On the toy, they're attached to her cape! (I forgot about that)

    I dunno...I'm thinking that a removeable helmet and armor would work wonders with this. On top of that, helmet could be two peices: the top half could come off and be the style guide tiara.

    I think the toy stioll holds up. she looks amazing to me. if the material pieces were more control (as they would be with plastic) she'd be perfect, but still I really like this figure.

    to chime in on the accessories, I am of the belief that if it appeared in the cartoon or on a cardback or existed in some previous life, then it should be included so i am all for her white sheild and blue starburst shera sword with the net cape, maybe introducing some element of Leechs net into her cape, maybe some removable suction cups so that when she wears the cape, they are off and when they are on she has captured someone. Thats my take on her
