    The Sorceress needs a spell casting hand!

    She is such an amazing figure but they did the same mistake with her, like with the yellow Evil Lyn.
    They forgot the spell casting hand!
    I personally donīt know how to pose her without out it.
    I doubt the wings make it possible for her to hold the staff with both hands.

    Ok the open fist looks like thumbs up but i would prefer a cool spell casting pose.
    Mattel still has 5 month to amend that fault! But we have to let them know.

    What was she even given TWO gripping hands for anyway? Is there another accessory that they haven't shown for her as of yet?
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    She looks amazing, but an open hand would make her perfect. It seemed like they were going in the right direction with Evil Lyn & Shadow Weaver.

    I still can't even believe we just saw all three of these ladies! At least this SDCC more than makes up for no ladies last year.

    I wanted a spell casting hand for the original Evil-Lyn and Goddess as well. Sorceress definitely should have a spell casting hand. There is no point in her having an open hand from what I can tell. I hope it is not too late to change this as it really is an awesome figure other than that.

    No point in two 'grip' hands? She has a staff. You hold a staff with two hands as often as not.

    I like having the option of one-handing or two-handing her staff. I wouldn't be upset if she did end up getting a 'casting' hand, but I'm not upset that she doesn't have one either.

    the only thing that would concern me with a spellcasting hand on any of the figures is that it would be a softer plastic like catra's scratching hand. I dont think that hand looked good on catra because of the material used

    ^ This. I don't really understand the point of spell casting hands when the figures do not come with the "spells," you know? The Evil-Lyn staction made sense because she has the fire...which is awesome! Catra made sense because she's a cat woman and threatening to scratch you.

    I don't get the big desire for spell casting hands without having clip-on magical effects. They look very awkward in every pose EXCEPT for a spell casting pose...but...without the "magic effect" nothing is happening...so they look like a very terrible sorcerer(ess)/magician! Unless you want them to warn people to stand back because they know kung-fu!

    But why should they have a "gripping" hand when they have nothing in hand?
    That makes even less sense.

    She can hold her staff with two hands, you can put a laser pistol or blaster in her other hand, TWO staffs, have her hold an ancient artifact in the other hand (Marzo's amulet, Ram Stone), and open spell book, etc.

    Filmation, the comics and MYP tell me magic is sparkly!

    I'm not SUPER against a spell casting hand...and ALTERNATE hand would be cool, if it could be done (3 hands: closed fist and 2 spell casting left hands). THAT would be neat...then I'd just try and FIND magical effects!

    Yep an ancient artifact would be cool, but she does not come with such a thing.
    The Staff holding pose does work with a spell casting hand, if the hand would look like on the minicomic cover.
    In my opinion a laser pistol would not be appropriate for a Sorceress
    Maybe its already to late though.

    I 100% agree, she does need a spell casting hand.
    I love her and am sooooo glad we are finnaly getting the true version of her that we all grew up with she will be perfect if they change that left hand to a casting one.

    There was that gem she used in Origin of the Sorceress that allowed her to leave the Castle, and maintain her powers, in human form!

    "Spell hand" please.

    Removable hands is a "must have" in MOTUC.

    Why the central piece of the back of wings is so short? I can see holes in the "wings"...

    Yes agreed...huge oversight here. Looks like she's just giving a "thumbs up" rather than casting a spell. BTW...The staff could have been better...or rather an alternate included.

    Hmm i have to agree here, i feel a 'spell casting hand' would make an already great looking figure into a fantastic one overall. Go on Mattel, you can make it happen!
