    How will you display your MOTUC Mermista?

    Now that we've seen what Mermista a.k.a Elaysia is going to look like, in both mermaid and land-lubber appearances, how the heck are you gonna display her?

    I am personally torn. I mean, she is a freaking Mermaid! That is awesome for so many reasons, the least of which is the fact that she is the only one of her kind to grace the line of Classics figures. (Or just action figures in general.... not a whole lot of Mermaids out there.) It would almost be a disservice not to display her as a mermaid, yet I love her with her legs as well!!! Ahhhh! What to do??

    So, what are your thoughts? How will Mermista grace your shelves?

    Discuss in this thread your reasons for displaying her the way you want to!

    as a mermaid of course. Frankly had they gone the scaly legs like I seem to remember in the toon, maybe I would have displayed her that way. Probably actually. But since it is skin legs, nope, definitely that boss fish tail.

    I'll most likely do both (using 2 figures)

    Both, I'm sure, though I imagine she'll spend most of her time as a mermaid.
    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

    As a Mermaid because damn....she has the worst of the hips too low for the skirt / leotard that isn't right issue.

    Her thighs should be about 1/4 to 1/2" higher under that skirt / leotard. Hasn't looked right since Sorceress first used that damn crotch piece.
    Recent.... Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Coming.... Mermista
    Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Double Mischief, Jitsu....
    Considering....
    Needed.... Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    Yup! Me too!

    I'll give her enough time with the legs until I find a proper stand for her mermaid tail! (The Fwoosh used a pretty cool water-base in some of their shots... is this from a DCU Aquaman? It works really well for Mermista!)

    I'm buying two figures. I gotta show off the unique fish tail but I'm a leg man too. If the MOTUC line ends I'll just go back and buy double of the figures with alternate looks

    I am going to be displaying her with the legs on, mostly for space purposes…As my POP shelf has grown, I've had to made some sacrifices. Flutterina and Sweet Bee's wings too…They take up a lot of prime real estate!

    I will display her as a mermaid, of course, because that's what she is.

    Every time I see pictures of her I get so freaking excited!!!
    I will display her in leg form on the MOTUC display, proper.
    I will display the 2nd figure in mermaid form on my "favorite toy" display.

    That stand is from the first Marvel Legends figure of Namor. Mermista is just another figure it will be perfect for!

    LOL she is a bit of brown bag candidate. A shame because her tail is quite good looking.
