    That's the point. They REALLY thought it was a good idea to do a black'n'pink Teela repaint, and saying anything else would be backtracking...

    This is what I've been asking for as well! Swap Bubble Power She-Ra and BG Evil-Lyn (BP She-Ra is an ACTUAL variant with the promised new tooling). BG Evil-Lyn might be fully packaged and produced by now though.

    I fully support this!

    Also, thanks Reboot. I wondered what SB Winston looked like originally, but couldn't find a picture of him! I'm glad they fixed him.

    It's a trick to get people buying this version for the helmet-less head because a future 200X Lyn will probably have more unique tooling like her bodice, skirt train, and kneepads, therefore something has to be cut.

    I might be wrong. They may have, for all intents and purposes, tried to pawn BG EL as a definitive 200X Lyn. All the Evil-Lyn talk is exhausting me.

    I would agree with that. BP She-Ra is a new buck, has removable armor, a new sword, a new head, and has newly detailed boots, and arm guards if I'm not mistaken.

    She's much more worthy of a Quarterly variant than the black and pink Teela repaint.

    It really puts things into perspective doesn't it? Teela has five variants in the line so far.

    Classic Teela, Green Goddess, Yellow Teela, Bikini Teela, and now Black and Pink Teela.

    That's a huge plus in her column. I actually use my Bikini Teela as Sharella, a contemporay of He-Ro and KG. I think Gbagok got that one right. Works for me. She seems to fit the more savage Eternian past. She's a cool figure in her own right, but she's not Teela to me. Teela's a redhead like her mom, the Sorceress.

    But why make a half-assed Evil-Lyn instead of going all the way? It has to be a cost issue. Some character probably went over budget and Mattel took the funds from the obvious choice--the character that they know they can sell again.

    Again, it's to sell more toys. I might be wrong, and you may be right: it may be a simple issue of cost and BG EL was just on the chopping block when it came to new parts. However, in the Comic-Conversation, Eric mentioned (paraphrased) "we have not seen the last of Evil-Lyn", so it may have been their plan all along to just get her out there as-is, with a 200X version coming in the future.

    Either way, there's still hope for a 200X version down the road.

    This is the only explanation I can think of BG EL doesn't represent any other version of Evil-Lyn out there. She's her own figure.

    It sounded to me like he thought he was done with the 200x version. It was just to sad and disgusting to hear his enthusiasm for this repaint that I'm forced into buying.

    Which makes this even more egregious. If we ever actually do get a true Evil Lyn figure, and not a Teela repaint, this figure was utterly pointless.

    A total waste of plastic.

    Worse even. I have two subs. This piece of crap is going to cost me over $60 dollars because I have two coming to me.

    I may hate vintage dial Hordak, but at least he has a new arm and more new tooling than this repaint.

    Eh. Get a proper MYP helmet for her, people wouldn't notice too much. She spent just a limited portion of one episode without it, after all.

    I'm almost certain they'll appeal to the non-existant Classicizer Machine to avoid tooling a new helmet. I think it's best to set our expectations on a realistic level, which I think should be getting a 200X dress for Evil-Lyn. They can't use the classicizer excuse on it anymore after the Faceless One.

    That's a great graphic BTW.

    This ought to be good.
    So, any word on this supposed statement by Mattel?
