    I didn't want to get into the habit of 2.0's actually, but given how this thread keeps going, it does seem to strike a passionate chord (possibly the vocal minority again based on DJ Force's poll). I think I'm about depleted on the issue myself. The reused leotard, artistic choice or not, was a let down, but I'm ready to move on.

    Think of it this way Toyguru

    You have a 2.0 figure of Evil Lynn, it was the one chance you/Mattel had to make an accurate 200X version, complete with new mold for Torso, instead you give us a repaint.

    Not - Cool

    for the amount of money you charge for these things, I think the fans expected a little more. If we are going to lay out another 20 spot or more, I think at times Mattel claims its too expensive to do retooling but think of how much money you make on multiple 20 dollar figures, etc.

    Yes.

    I'm kidding, of course. Were those the circumstances, though, I would definitely be hesitant to buy the figure, if the armor turned out as ill-fitting (design-wise; and in my eyes) with much of the rest of the line as Faceless One does.

    I feel the same way. It isn't some anti-2002 bias on my part either since I feel Chief Carnivus fits perfectly in this line. The Faceless One looks like something out of another toyline entirely.

    Be careful with that Stratos colors Teela tunic!! Don't give them any ideas with regard to Hawk.

    I truly think that if the 4H DID choose the Teela tunic as a repaint, it was because they had WAAAAAY too much to do to prep for SDCC.

    I think it may have simply been a time saving measure.

    Personally, I think the Sorceress is perfect the wau she is. No need to change her.

    For BG Evil Lyn, it's different.

    What bothers me with Battleground Evil Lyn is that the poseability and articulation has not been changed. Still no waist twist (and let me add that we still don't know if BG EVil Lyn's plastic clothes will be soft enough for her to twist her waist easily).

    Toyguru had said that 200X would be "much more than a straight repaint"... and here we are with a straight repainted body ! There's only the second head and the cape that are new. The rest is the same old Teela mold, sculpt and outfit.

    I'm not sure it's worth buying a second Evil Lyn... I'm on the fence.

    Hey Guys

    I think this Evil-Lyn is sure posible for the 4H
    but i think is not the time for this Version!
    To change her look coast a lot, and take the Teela parts are usefull.
    We can hope of a new Evil-Lyn in far future like 200X (i wait to)

    This Version remembers me on the Movie Version mixed with Vintage Style and we have her Short hair Head!!!

    .. and with little changes is she made able to become like this:




    also Relax - enjoy this one and look forward of a new one! Toy Guru and the 4H knows WE want her in 200X style!!!!

    Except this figure had a full tooling budget and the cost for the tunic was allowed by Mattel. The 4H even had permission to sculpt an all 200x tunic.

    They chose not to. They chose to make us pay for that Teela outfit again, for a fourth time.

    I do not appreciate that.

    Maybe my poll choice was a little odd. I shouldn´t have asked for a Filmation repaint. The goal of the poll was to find out how many fans are okay with the given repaint and how many would rather want a true to the original variant. My poll is misleading here.
    Positivity, folks!
    Let´s all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    I'm coming a little late to this thread, but I'll add my opinion anyway:

    I think the Battleground Evil Lyn figure shown at SDCC is adequate. It seems to work stylistically, I appreciate the second head and the cape. Using the old female buck doesn't concern me - Teela's mobility was hampered by the plastic used on her dress but I think Mattel learned a lesson there. My Evil Lyn and Catra are fine: both can twist at the waist and both are perfectly pliant. If this is the only variant of Evil Lyn we get in the line then I won't feel cheated.

    But....

    It's a very strange decision to make her like this, especially if money was on the table for a more 200X inspired outfit. What we have is a hybrid 200X/Filmation Evil Lyn, which is okay... but it is just okay. Maybe this is how the Horsemen envisaged Evil Lyn at this stage in her career. Maybe they're go back and make a third variant of Evil Lyn from her youth that uses the different dress. I won't hold my breath for that.

    It's a wasted opportunity in my mind. I'm not usually one to complain, but I was hoping for something more than this.

    I really, really wish it was as easy to swap the armor on the females as the males, because I really like some of those recolors.

    And it wouldn't surprise me at all (and should surprise no one), if we get an Illumina (fingers crossed, of course), that should would have a recolored Teela tunic.

    i am sure it is not the time for a 200X Evil-Lyn.

    but i don't want see a female figure wiht Teelas upper Body any more!!!

    i like the 200X Version Evil-Lyn idea why she don't looks like a bad Teela Clone

    "BG Evil-Lyn" is ok but "200X Evil-Lyn" is great like "Vintage Evil-Lyn"!

    I actually like the idea of a non Simpsons lost daughter Evil-Lynn. She looks somewhat more realistic,
    and more MOTU 80's like, even if the colors are supposed to be more MYP than Filmation. I am absolutely
    happy with her, and she will be my only Evil-Lynn purchase...unless something better comes along that is.
    I never liked the yellow version. Just like I prefer regular red-haired Teela to the BG version...I am opposite
    with Lynn here.

    Yea I am really actually very happy with the bg evil lyn. trust be told she looks 200x enough to me, i like the color scheme better, and i hate the yellow skin. THIS is the evil lyn i originally wanted, and it is the one I will be displaying (ill probably have the yellow one out too tho) I really do NOT want another evil lyn for at least 2 years tho, id rather see other figures get made, other variants or repaints before we see a third evil lyn. just my two cents

    Im so exhausted about this issue with BG Evil-Lyn.
    She does look awesome, but its only the addition of the pale skin, the heads, the cloak,( which needs a retool to fit behind so as not to cover the neck and armour sculpt!) and the spellcasting hand which are making people settle for this realese. When u think about the rest of the figure on its own, its very dissapointing. I cannot except THAT colour scheme on THAT Teela Scuplt! WHY WASNT THE FILMATION COLOURS USED ON THIS RELEASE? I could have accepted that and not been so stressed along with alot of people on here.
    I do think we will get 200x Evil-Lyn , prob in yellow skin version too, (and with Shard Of Darkness, several SpellCasting hands and Energy Bolts, see stactions, if Mattel/ Four Horsemen, know whats good for em!) But I fear my fav Filmation Styled Evil-Lyn will never see the light of day now as a new lower half sculpt and a new short crystal ball and new cloak would be needed, maybe even a new helmet? After all the issues trying to get some new tooling this time around, the support for Filmation Lyn, which only a few people really want, will be impossible.
    I think this is why Im so dissapointed and frustrated that the colours are all wrong on this release.

    To try and end on a positive note: I will be buying two BG Evil-Lyns and as a figure I shall enjoy it for what it is. She does look fine seen on her own merits, I think the paint will be coming out at some stage though.
