    I wish they had not used those red highlights though as they do not look right to me on this figure. No doubt its the 200X staction color scheme that they were trying to reference, but for that she really needed a new dress. Also the colors on those leaves she's wearing just look garish to me. At least she's not Marge Simpson of Eternia now.

    ok so over her breasts she should have three horizontal bones instead of some swirly ram bones.... if she had the skirt then i think most people would over look that

    This is just a case of Mattel being SEVERELY, and inappropriately, cheap. Teela, Goddess and Evil-Lyn 1.0 have this outfit. Give her the PROPER outfit!:

    - two pieces: LONG skirt and bone-bra

    They can re-use the boots, head and bracelets, just give her her proper outfit!

    The Faceless One, her father, has the bone design on his outfit, so none of that Classicizer Machine nonsense will fly this time! I wanted her SO bad, but seriously...the 200X action figure, staction, bust, etc is 1000x better than this.

    If I didn't have a sub I would honestly skip her because I already have this action figure in 3 different colours. This was a VERY poor choice!

    There's nothing 200x about that figure but the color scheme. The helmet and helmetless heads are beautiful but that does nothing to fix the glaring insult of giving he Teela's outfit again. A 200x Evil Lyn would have her own outfit.

    Even the Vintage Dial Hordak variant got a new arm, and a cowl piece that doesn't have the cape.

    This figure is much better than the current yellow piece of junk we got, but she still fails on a fundamental level.

    Both Teela and She-Ra have two distinct outfits in the line now, and Evil Lyn doesn't even have one. It's disgraceful. I don't think actual 200x variants that are warranted are ever going to happen (200x King Hsss, Sorceress, Evil Lyn). We're three years in and we haven't seen one yet.

    My attitude is this...

    I'm not displeased with Battleground Evil-Lyn. I like what we got, but it could be better. On the positive side, she actually fixes alot of the problems that the original Evil-Lyn had: Alternate head, cape and spellcasting hand. One the negative side, they repainted Teela's body--something that the 200X Evil-Lyn specifically FIXED. That was the whole point of asking for her.

    So...this will do for now, sorta like the 200X kitbash of 200X He-Man that you can make from KG 2.0. A placeholder until we can eventually get a version with a unique dress.

    Hopefully, we can get a more unique tooled Battleground Evil-Lyn 2.0 sometime later down the line.

    She just looks perfect IMO. One of the best announced figures yet.

    Agreed. That's why this figure is still a failure on the most fundamental level. It's still worlds better than the first thing Mattel called motuc Evil Lyn though.

    Pretty much. It will do for now, but it still isn't satisfying. The entire point of an Evil Lyn variant was to give her a unique outfit she could call her own.

    I never give up hope, but this looking less and less likely.

    So another year has come and gone and 200x Evil Lyn remains my most desired figure now that Leech is coming.

    Just asked the following in the WTFWTK thread. If you're picked to choose the questions next round, consider it your responsibility to pick this one

And if you had a spot for an Evil-Lyn variant that didn't have the tooling budget for a new dress, boots, armguards and the other things that distinguished that version of the character, why not do the Asian, wearing a purple/blue dress, Filmation colour scheme, which COULD be achieved by adding a cape and little else to a repaint of the existing version? (a cape that the MYP version didn't actually have - that design featured a long hessian skirt)

    you know the more i read your comments the more i'm beginning to agree, she should have a new dress piece really she should be more 200x, she should not share the teela/godess/original evil-lyn body

    she best make use of the female 2.0 buck, because if she uses the original buck as well then its just lazy

    Okay, clearly it's even MORE loosely based than I first thought. The base dress colour is BLACK, not purple...

    That means she's probably going to have Catra's super squishy left hand too, doesn't it?

    On the plus sider, her weapons do look stunning. The colors and the silver paint apps are amazing. That is probably my favorite weapon paint app so far in the line.

    This is one of the most exciting reveals of the day for me. I do wish that she matched the Faceless One's colors a bit better, but overall I'm just happy to see anything resembling 200X Evil Lyn.

    The neckline of her dress with the cape on top don't really work for me. I'm just not getting what I wanted from this figure. (if indeed this is mattel's attempt at the 200x version).

    Aww, dude. I know how much you've wanted this figure to happen...and I'm sorry.

    I dig it quite a bit. Taking 200X and the fact that it's kind of a repaint of a repaint out of the equation, it's pretty sweet as far as redecos go.

    So even though I like it, I feel your pain. A skirt and maybe even a few parts swaps with other females may have helped. Even Catra boots could be argued as Classicized 200X boots, just to change her up some.

    If it was a case of skirt or head, I'd have gone with head. That's a nice looking head that I feel does a fantastic job applying the MYP look to the Classics face! I look forward to seeing some custom solutions to the skirt, hopefully one that everyone can easily replicate.

    As far as redecos go, I'll agree it's stunning. It is light years ahead of the current figure.

    It's close, just not all the way there. I love it so much more than what we got though. I feel like at least I can call this an Evil Lyn figure. And that does make me very happy.

    The head looks gorgeous. I agree completely.

    Personally I like the figure. Sure it doesn't look exactly like the 200x version, but I kinda like how they did her. She looks great to me and I'll happily add her to my collection.

    I do have one question though...will she have the swappable staff top like the original did? I prefer the wand style as opposed to the staff.

    That's...one of the only things they got right on this, RB. It matches up pretty well (colour-wise, at least) until it reaches the skirt (except the DARK reddish pink/purple colour should be the light purple/lavendar used on Faceless One):

    I never liked how that 200X Evil-Lyn toy was painted. They should have used the staction as their guide for how to paint her. I much prefer her breastplate to be silver instead of lavender.
