    Battleground Evil-Lyn: Discussion thread

    Basically, it's a hybrid Lyn. 200X's colours & unmasked head with Filmation's cape and paint layout on an otherwise basic repaint of Simpsons-Lyn. No new dress, boots, skirt-train or armguards. Disappointing.



    Compare:


    Not so much "more than just a repaint", Toyguru.

    EDIT:

    Bio: Cast aside by her secret husband after his transforation, Evil-Lyn sent their infant son into the future and plotted to overthrow Skeletor by releasing his enemies from their dimensional prisons. In a series of miscalculations, she helped free the Snake Men, Hordak and Gygot - increasing her advesaries threefold! Afer Randor and Miro returned from Despondos, the Three Towers rose and Evil-Lyn found herself again allied with Skeletor during the Second Ultimate Battleground. At the end, defeated and stripped of her powers by the new Sorceress of Grayskull, Evil-Lyn used the Cosmic Key and the power of the Central Tower to return to the future and find a new life with her long lost child - the son of Skeletor!

    Personally I am really happy, this is pretty much what I hoped she would be.

    Thank you!!! I was starting to feel alone in that other thread. If we're still getting a proper 200x Lyn then this one is just fine. If this is supposed to be the 200x lyn it's rather dissapointing. She doesn't even match her father.

    I'm keeping the hope for a proper filmation and a proper 200x lyn.

    eh, I am ok with it specifically because of the helmet-less head and skin color. I am surprised it was a lot of repainted parts, but only because the general consensus was she would get significant new tooling.

    I will buy her
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Yes, this is the Evil-Lyn I was hoping for the first time.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I hope that this Battleground Evil-Lyn look is her look before her 200x look like Battleground Teela is her look before her sorceress look. If not then that will suck.

    Apart from TP He-Man, this is the most disappointing reveal today.
    Plain, simple, boring.
    If she wouldn´t be part of my sub, this would be the first figure I´d skip. Rather waiting for the REAL 200x Evil-Lyn.
    Positivity, folks!
    Let´s all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    As awesome as this looks, I've waited years for a Filmation Evil-Lyn, and with only 2-3 Filmation characters per year, I get the feeling she's on the back burner. I think we need to clammer to get this repainted into the Filmation version.

    A little disappointed in her, was hoping she'd be a little more 200x accurate, where have those red bits come from?

    She's more than just a repaint............. She's got a new bleeping head.

    She's exactly how I expected her to look. If she'd existed in the 80s they would have simply thrown a cape on the original EL figure and repainted it.

    If you put Panthor's new helmet through the Classicizer machine you get a green repainted Battle Cat helmet. Buzz-Off came with his 200x axe and vintage axe. We should have only got Buzz-Off's vintage axe with the figure. Not I'm complaining, but I still don't have my 200x Keldor swords or 200x Evil Lyn.


    My thoughts from the other thread:


    That is not 200x Evil Lyn. It's a repaint of the current yellow Teela but in 200x colors.

    It's still a massive improvement though.

    First, it gets rid of that horrid yellow Simpson color. The purple and black match Skeletor.

    The cape and extra head are very nice.

    So in short, we still have not gotten an official 200x variant of any character (King Hsss, Evil Lyn. etc). I'm seriously doubting we will get any actual 200x variants.

    We can sculpt new characters but Evil Lyn can't get her own outfit?

    Failure by Mattel and the 4H. But at least it's not an epic one anymore. That Evil Lyn still looks worlds better than the current one and will easily become my default one. This is what we should have gotten the first time.

    I think she looks stunning - one of my favourite reveals.

    Maybe they'll do an "Evelyn Morgan Powers" figure from the 200x cartoon - the scene where she had the 200x armor and wore a crown.

    Still a possibility.

    She has two new pieces. That's not... *searches for the exact quote* "a lot more then just a repaint.".

    It's very simple. If they didn't have the budget to do more than a cape & alternate head, they should have done FILMATION Evil-Lyn and waited for the chance to do a PROPER 200X-Lyn. As it stands, they've done neither - it doesn't even have the right fracking spot colour (should be gold, not red) for a 200X-Lyn, let alone look like her.

    Out of her entire build it's the boots that are glaringly distracting imo. If you replace those with the new She-Ra 2.0 ones I'd be more inclined to accept the old armor than not.

    But those boots... *shudder*

    I'm fine with it. In fact, I'm probably going to get 2!

    November is going to be a very expensive month! I'm just hoping I can get an extra Evil-Lyn and 2 She-Ra's, but I will be out of town and likely unable to order manually, so it's going to be a challenge!

    I wanted a 200X version so much! If this is the best they can do, I'll be super dissapointed

    I like it. If this is the start of more Battleground characters, I welcome it.

    she's basically the 200x version, she's just missing the longer loin cloth/skirt

    thats surely a simple enough custom job

    I'm exceptionally happy

    Uh, I posted a cartoon picture to compare, and they're as different as She-Ra and Teela's dresses (same basic colours - well, inexplicable red highlights aside - but in a different design).

    Hell, compare her to Faceless One - her dress should be based on HIS chest design.
