    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 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!

    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.

    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.

    Well they also do have other toylines that customers who buy MOTUC purchase too. So "if" the Legion of Superheroes 12 pack is out in October that is a huge pricepoint that any item moved from October could be a relief to potential buyers. But reading the answer it may be that the Wind Raider is taking more time to produce than anything, not a delay to move product around and even things out.

    This is good news! We can spend less $$$ on November and just focus on aquiring BP She-Ra instead!

    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.

    I shan't accept it! Begone!


    I read the whole 'inspiration behind evil lyn' bit. I get it. But really how long does it take to alter the teela dress so that it has a waist cut, and to apply it to the ALREADY SCULPTED, already budgeted new female buck that they created for the new She-ra and all the upcoming female figures? For aesthetics sake, BG evil lyn will STAND OUT as one of the early females that did not have a waist cut, instead of blending more with the new females that will all sport this new cut!

    Let them keep that color scheme that looks nice. But really, I d rather wait another month or two and get a figure that doesnt show her pants when twisting at the waist.

    Yeah, I agree with all who said that they're not going to change it. It's too late in the process. It's a fact. Sorry, guys.

    What do you mean she has been moved to Dec? I want her sooner NOT later.
    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.
