    I would love to have a MOTUC Spinnerella!

    But then, I would love to have every vintage MOTU and POP ever released or shown a proto pic to be release as well!

    Man, is that your Spinnerella cel? I want that cel! Can I have that cel?

    I think a thin, bendy material would be best. This way, people can keep the strips straight, or "twirl" them...and they would stay. I'm all about options! They just better sculpt the EXACT amount the toy has and not do 2 for the arms and 3 for her waist like the cartoon. So lazy.

    Oh and I forgot who came up with this idea, but awhile back I remember reading that she should come with two closed hands and two blades...so she can slice-and-dice as she's spinning.
    They could just give her two comb-axes!

    I have a Star Sisters cel too in my collection, but it only features Tallstar on it and she's partially extended. The one on that page is all sorts of awesome. Me want, badly!
    I forgot you had one, but I knew you'd be jealous!

    You have two almost COMPLETE ones?! I have three...but not a single complete one. I'm missing her darn skirt! I think I have the combs for all of them though.

    Interesting figure! Not one of my top favorites from when I looked through the archives, but still an eye-catching design. Only reason why this one is lower on my list is because of the potential for failure without cloth items. I just don't see ANY plastic streamers doing as well as the cloth used on the original figure in the pics, there. Only thing I could think of is interchangeable streamers: ones in the "down" position for standing there, and ones out and fluttering for the spinning position. Still, either way, she won't be that fun to pose 'cause those things will constantly be in the way.

    Still, if they DO manage to figure out how to do it and still have her be fun as a figure: i'm liking the idea of giving her two comb axes! Either that, or maybe two of those "bubble power" swords in short dagger form.

    We have 1 fully complete, the other is missing her spinning base and shield as far as I can remember.

    Me too!

    Man, is that your Spinnerella cel? I want that cel! Can I have that cel?
    No, that's not my art cel. Although I do own a few PoP art cels, Spinnerella isn't amongst them:

    - Adora atop Spirit, with Kowl in a tree
    - Vultak kidnapping Kowl and Kowla
    - Bow, Glimmer and She-Ra escaping the Fright Zone
    - LOTS of Melog medium shots

    I found the art cel picture here:

    Tallstar will die with jealousy...because this person owns a Star Sister's cel!

    I love viewing art cels because you get to see the TRUE colours the characters were on the show!

    When I think about it... it would be amazing to have a spinnerella in my collection. She is the rarest regular figure ever produced and soooo expensive...

    Then again, I wonder how they will do all these bands without using fabrics?

    As a few people have said... This would be great it just depends on how the 4H tackle the material parts.

    I'm curious to see the bio on Spinnerella. In the way I view her, I regard her as something akin to a wind elemental, giving her the power to influence the air currents and climate conditions on Etheria. Maybe she's still learning the full extent of her abilities and perhaps her "airheaded" personality makes her more of a wild card on the battlefield as she struggles to harness her powers.

    All good ideas here. I also like the idea of her being armed with blades. The frilliness of the design needs to be overhauled a bit to fit in more, but the idea of her being a comedy relief character does a lot to help that. And she is a messenger? Is she a spy or something? Perhaps she could be Double Trouble's contact outside the Horde....

    I would love to have a Spinerella in my vintage POP collection, but I don't think I'll ever be able to afford one. I'll have to settle for MOTUC. I love her big bouffant hairdo.

    I always saw Flutterina as more of the messenger for the Rebellion, being tasked to deliver messages to the different groups involved all over Etheria.

    I tend to regard Spinerella as the youngest in the group, as the one with the most to learn about herself and her abilities. Given her previous characterization, I don't think she was a spy given her "ditzy" nature.

    Oh-we HAVE to get Spinnerella. Netossa needs her pal!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I hope they get to Spinnerella soon. She's one of my most anticipated POP laydeez! I also hope they give her the pinched features of the Filmation version. She's strikingly statuesque in her one Filmation appearance!

    I'm anxious to see how the 4H approached the design.

    I would like the Toon version in as much as the skirt is concerned. I like streamlined (hehe) and a bunch of plastic (soft but still fairly ridged) strands hanging off her waist would be...unseemly. However it is possible the 4H could do it justice somehow.

    I would not mind two toned hair. I would like the arm strands, but If there were alot of them I'd kinda want them removable. She is definately the kind of character that is difficult to imagine without cloth. I do prefer the sculpted plastic in MOTUC with the exception of Grizzlor (hehe) but she could be one that needs it.

    Frankly if they basically just make the Toon version with little to no toy insperation I would be ok with that. Whatever the case I am excited to see 4H tackle this dangling strand problem.

    The Filmation design for Spinnerella is just a less detailed version of Toy Spinnerella. They both have strands hanging from the bracelets and arms. The toys are two colours and spiraled. The cartoon version is blue for the arms and purple for the skirt. You can see that the skirt is made of strands when she spins:



    I *really* hope they go pure Toy design and colours on Spinnerella. She needs her crown. They could make a second head as the "Filmation" one. That would be cool. The toy of Spinnerella and her cardback art are SO beautiful and the colours go so well together. The Filmation version is so plain and bland. No blending of colours...and the orange and blue symbol on her belt clash. They go with nothing. The pink on the toy belt match her accessories, crown, bracelets and chest design.













    In her magazine appearance, she also had the two-toned hair and blue and purple streamers in her skirt. Her singular appearance in the FIlmation cartoon is the ONLY time she had solid purple strands for her skirt.



    Here's an interesting take on what she could look like in MOTUC by a fan:



    If someone can customize a beautiful, small, beaded Spinnerella with two-toned streamers...I have faith the Four Horsemen can make her two-toned streamers.

    As much as I like Spinerella I'm worried how her figure will turn out. It will be difficult to make her skirt without it looking bulky, if the strands are too thin they will tear. I kind of wish they would go with fabric material. Her toy design is much better looking, but the Filmation look will be easier for them to make.

    Maybe her skirt piece will be removable.
