    What are you doing with your first edition Evil Lyn?

    So with the reveal of BG Evil Lyn, I've been pondering how to incorporate her and the first release into my collection and story.

    My first approach was to make them Lyn at two different points, with BG Evil Lyn being her natural form, and the yellow version being a result of her working with dark magic. I thought about it some more, and came to another idea.

    I've decided that the 1st release is actually Evil-Lyn's mother...The Sultress!

    The Sultress was an ambitious sorceress bent on gaining ultimate power. During this search, she came into contact with King Hsss who told her of a spell that would allow her to steal power from the Council of Elders. What was required was an heir to sacrifice as part of the ritual. They made a deal that King Hsss would provide her with the ritual if she agreed to help him and use that power to defeat the Council. Sultress eagerly agreed.

    Sultress managed to seduce Nickolas Powers and become pregnant. What the Sultress didn't realize was that she was being used as a pawn by King Hsss to get the Eye of Serpos. Once Evelyn was born and Sultress brought her to King Hsss to perform the rite, Sultress was killed by the Snake Men and baby Evelyn was taken hostage and held ransom for the Eye of Serpos, which Nikolas turned over to King Hsss for her safe return. This ended in tragedy anyway, as Zalesia was destroyed and the Council turned Nikolas into the Faceless one for his actions.

    Anyway, that's my take. What's yours?

    What I do with my other variants, put them on a different shelf. Yellow Evil-Lyn will be joining regular Stratos, vsDC Merman, vsDC He-Man, and regular Skeletor.
    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.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    The yellow version will move up to my preternia/variant shelf while 200x/battleground becomes the standard version for my villains display (she DOES look a lot better).

    I have a shelf that I call "The Toy Line Canon" which is where I put Teela with the snake armor, He-Man with the axe and shield, Man at arms without the stache, etc. I guess you could call this the "cardback canon". So my yellow lynn will go with that set of figs.

    The yellow Teela will go into the extra figure bin on the bottom.

    Then again...maybe she can be the Bride of Faker? Faker got lonely and demanded Skeletor make him a woman? So naturally she's modeled after Snake Mountain's number one girl.

    Hm...can I do that? Can I justify keeping my most hated motuc figure on the shelf as a robotic Evil Lyn? Crap! I may end up keeping her displayed after all.

    I might throw mine in a box or something with my vintage He-Man body (with surplus King Grayskull head), missing tooth Skeletor, my extra, capeless Keldor with vintage Skellie armour, 1.0 She-Ra with 2.0's head and Teela's Snake headdress.

    Keeping her where she is. Love those classic toy colors even if it is a ridiculous shade of yellow.

    That's one thing I always loved about MOTU...the eye catching and awesome color combos.

    I'm going to stand her right next to the Battleground Evil-Lyn, just to prove that a wormhole in the space time continuum won't be opened by having the same character on the shelf twice.

    In all seriousness though, classic Lyn will likely retain prominence in my rotating display. She's awesome and nostalgic.

    Got rid of her the day I got her. Lyn is probably the only character where I just can't stand the classic version. So glad I can have a lyn to display now...
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Really?



    In what way does that particularly resemble the Evil-Lyn of the Mike Young Productions cartoon? Other than the helmetless head and staff, they seem to have gone out of their way to make it UNalike, with the reddish pink, the silver (especially on the helmeted head - compare the two-shades-of-purple MYP helmet with the garishly-silver BG Lyn helmet), lack of gold and general disregard for detail.

    It resembles it enough in the manner that I don't particularly care about MYP stuff. It may not be good enough for you but it's passable for me. The original question is "What's your take?" That's my take on BG Evil-Lyn. I'm pretty lax when it comes to 200X/MYP parameters.

    The new one will go on the variant/ preternia shelf in my collection. Next to Keldor, probably.

    I'll retire that one like I did Red headed Teela. It's going into my bonus figures bin.

    First edition Lyn is staying where she belongs... with Skeletor and the Evil Warriors.
    Where will helmetless, white-haired Battleground Evil-Lyn go? Into out of space, of course... alongside He-Man, She-Ra, and the other heroic warriors who have gone to the Tri-Star System to take on Skeletor and his army of Space Mutants! Imagine this older, vengeful & calculating Evil-Lyn slowly regaining her powers as she helps He-Man and the others take down Skeletor as he tries to overtake the Horde Empire! EPIC! Evil-Lyn vs. Skeletor's new squeeze... Critta! I'm psyched... LOL!

    She's the same and I'll love each one equally. I trade out era's on my shelf sometimes and Yellow goes with classic Pre-Filmation, and Pale goes with Filmation forward.
    Good trades with: Cammor
