    If BG EVIL LYN is moved to december...

    ... Can we expect Mattel to change her a little bit?

    While a lot of people would have prefered a 200X bodice / skirt, almost EVERYONE agreed that, should the Four Horsemen reuse the Teela dress, they could AT THE VERY LEAST upgrade it into a TWO-PARTS outfit and use the new Female buck. This would make Evil Lyn more special and less of a repaint (She'd be able to turn at the waist) It would also pave the way for a Teela 2.0 with the new twist waist when they reissue her. (it's been long due!)

    What do yo guys think?

    I think there's no way they can pull off any changes by December. It likely got bumped by a shipping/logistics issue. My guess is that BG EL is pretty closed to being all packaged up and ready to put on the boat to El Segundo.

    I think she's already fully produced. The one at SDCC looked like a production version and not a prototype. If they can give her a two piece outfit on 2.0 buck that would be cool though. An MYP outfit would be super awesome.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    I didn't know she'd been moved to December! That's awesome!
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    Mattel is looking into moving her to December. It isn't a certainty yet.

    There will probably be no changes, so don't get your hopes up.

    I'm very surprised this is potentially an option this close to her release.

    I'm assuming that they're moving her b/c there are so many other things being released in November and only Demo-man being released in December. Not a bad move, especially for the ol' wallet.

    I've seen on Facebook through Masters Of The Universe Classics that the Wind Raider may also move to November or December.
    If such thing happens I hope it'll be pushed to December, since in November we will also have Swiftwind...

    I like BG Evil-Lyn as is but am glad she may have the option of being moved to December. It will help with finances for November. Also I hope the news of the Wind Raider moving is not true. It is perfect for it to be released in October with only Flipshot being the only new figure released. I don't think it's good for Mattel to release such heavy months as far as releases and needs to plan them better. November for example with a regular figure, a quarterly variant and a beast is very expensive especially for those who have multiple subs. Show some respect for your customers finances is all I would ask.

    They have been very clear about this: There will be no changes at this point. I think the only thing we could reasonably expect (and even this I do not believe is likely) is a bit of a paint app change, if they so wished.

    She will be as is, more or less.

    That being said, of course I've said already that this is actually once I thought about it, the pefect Evil Lyn. But she could and would be better with 2.0 buck and waist.

    I am actually kinda glad that BG Evil Lynn is being moved, kinda upset the wind raider may be taking her place tho....


    november is gonna be VERY expensive, granted if wind raider is nov we in theory will save $10 on shipping since bubble power she-ra also isnt a sub figure, but i was kinda hopin evil lyn was being moved to save us a wallet hurt.... nope!

    OH and there is no way they are changing or adding a thing to her.... this is matty we're talkin about, they rarely change stuff that is 6-7 months away! let alone 2-3

    I thought it was mentioned a long time ago, that if it has been shown, then it is too late for any changes.

    And I'm sure the issue of her moving would be because November is a heavy month. Moving her or She-ra to December would be a good idea.

    I mean it's a $90 month. I would not mind sending them both to December making November a $50 month and December a $60 would be fine with me. Because I plan on buying more than one Wind Raider in October and could use a bit of a break in November.

    Canada-Man answered a few posts up. I'd post a link, but I'm on my wife's iPod, 's too hard, lol. Oh and yeah, right now it's only a "maybe" thing.

    I agree with others', moving BG Evil Lyn would be great, but keep Wind Raider where it is. It's like they just don't get the "even-out the costs" point; for whatever reason, it never sinks in.

    Sure thing! I missed it the first time around too, lol.

    Hopefully they'll spread-out the New Years' first few months of releases as well. Good grief.
