What Is Your Favorite Look For Evil-Lyn?
What Is Your Favorite Look For Evil-Lyn?
I've always loved Evil Lyn, including the vintage toy and flimation looks. The MYP 200X cartoon design it my favorite though. She is unique compared to Teela but still has classic elements. I also choose the MYP over the 200X toy due to the shared parts, most importantly the boots. Evil Lyn should have had high heels and not that dumb asymmetrical chunky boot thing. With all this said I'm very happy with both "yellow" and Battleground Evil Lyn in MOTUC.
"Don't crowd me boys!"
I chose the 2002 Toy version as i think it has the perfect color scheme i imagine for her. Her helmet looks great, it´s a little bit higher on the top part almost like crown and i love the necklace/chocker she wears there.
I almost chose Battleground Evil Lyn, those colors are great and she finally has a cape. I like that she sticks to her iconic outfit, i totally can rely to that thought.
I'd go with the 1987 movie
"A knight is sworn to valor. His heart knows only virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the wicked."
I've gotta be honest... I love the vintage figure the best.
In my head that is Evil Lyn... and always will be.

I was around for the pre-Filmation era of MOTU, but I'll always be a Filmation guy. Having said that, Evil-Lyn will always be yellow to me. It stands out more and just makes this line that much more colorful. While I may not agree with the 4H on Panthor(flocked) or Man-E-Faces(vintage toy colors), I'm happy they agreed with me on Evil-Lyn.
I like her younger MYP look most, but they're all great; everything in Classics is super to me. I'd love the young version to be the next Lyn figure.
Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
Vintage toy, no doubt
It's funny because I was going to vote MYP/200x. But then I realized that while I do prefer the vintage look, the thing I liked the best about myp was the skin colour, and to a minor extent, her clothes colour.
And that's what BG Evil Lyn is. The "Real" evil lyn, but with suprerior colouring. She is just as much "Filmation" evil lyn as anything else. Because for me what made filmation Lyn so cool, was she was not yellow.
So the BG one has not yellow skin, and a cape, which is cool and Filmation. BG Lyn is the best version of lyn ever, and I believe the difference in 200x versus Classics is stylistically unimportant. It's basically the same.
At any rate, this poll made me realize that not only am I ok with BG evil lyn, but that she is the Lyn I've been waiting for.
I will probably repaint her seemingly bright magenta/pink paint ap on her "bra straps" a darker purple to more match her 200x colours, (or even faceless one) but still.
This is it.
Battleground Evil-Lyn is the 1 I really like so far cause I love the dark colors anyway.
By the Power of Grey Skull!
I love all versions... but the movie version is special... Meg Foster was brilliant... and even though the movie costume was so different, I loved it.
I also love BG Evil-Lyn... she's a "Classicized" version of both the Filmation and MYP Adult Lyn to me...
That doesn't mean I don't want a Zalesian-style "Young Lyn" figure... AHEM!!
I also love the Evil-Lyn from Filmation, and the version seen in the "Between A Rock and A Hard Place" mini-comic.
A Want List of Sorts: Peekablue, Saurod, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, 200X Head Pack, Mara, Buzz-Saw Hordak, Dragstor, Perfuma, Dare, Prahvus, Ceratus, King Chuboolu, Flying Fists He-Man, Terror Claws Skeletor, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.
I'm pretty sure Evil-Lyn is the toughest character in which to answer this question! I love EVERY form of Evil-Lyn and the movie version is surprisingly near the top. That doesn't happen very often, let's just say that as I am NOT a movie person at all. Every "look" for Evil-Lyn is perfection IN MY CANON...
I chose Filmation because that's the first one that brought life and personality to her. Also Linda Gary is one of my favorite VAs of all time. Plus she was introduced as "EVIL-LYNNNNN....SORCERESS OF NNNNNIGHT!!!!" and that intro is definitely epic!
The movie version is high on my list. Meg Foster portrayed Evil-Lyn amazingly as a real, non animated person. Love the costume, and especially those evil eyes!
The classic yellow and blue toy look also holds a special place to me personally. I think I actually barely remember getting her at Kmart. Back in the day when Kmart smelled like popcorn and had a cafeteria in it. I very faintly remember that Kmart and getting MOTU there. It wasn't very far from where I grew up. These are like some of the earliest memories I've been able to hang onto all these years. Regardless everywhere I took my Skeletor figure, I just had to take that yellow and blue Evil-Lyn.
I even really love the newer pale and purple look for Evil-Lyn. This is one of the very few (maybe only one actually ) characters that I think MYP/200x hit it out the park. They did such a good job on her that I almost feel wrong saying this because I also happen to be blinded by nostalgia.
The only thing that comes close in character to Evil-Lyn is Snow White's Evil Queen.
I voted for the 87 FILM version.
I watched it from beginning to end for the first time recently in many years. Love, love, LOVE Evil Lyn in that film! Her costume is pretty spectacular, and the actress was amazing.
Etherian Rebel JOSH for the MOTUC (see my avatar)!
Filmation, followed closely by MYP. Movie Evil-Lyn's third.
I have to go with the 200X version for sure. Definitely my fav version.
MYP all the way for me. That cartoon got almost everything right about MOTU, from designs to stories. It was truly a labor of love and it showed. That being said, I've been torn between the MYP/200x look(come on, they're not *that* different) and the Filmation look. Never cared for the yellow skinned version, even though I have the figure. BGEL was so close, yet so far away! That super pale skin was just plain old ugly.
