    Sorceress of Horokoth

    Have you seen the Sorceress of Horokoth from DC comics? I would love to get this figure. Wow... What do you guys think of her? I may be in the minority but I would take her over a 2nd Shadow Weaver figure.

    I saw her, and I am not a fan of the design...the colors don't go well together, Also Evil-Lyn's trademark is her helmet for me, without that basic design it doesn't do it for me.

    Sorry, but I think Shadow Weaver or a a variant of her is more important than this poor design.

    Don't get me wrong I would love to get a Filmation Shadow Weaver, but I like seeing the world of MOTU expand and this is a cool figure I like the story of her. I do agree that they should have worked her helmet in some type away.

    I'm not really a fan of Horokoth Evil-Lyn. It seems too "Horde-ish".

    Besides, with Teela there seemed to be a precedent...Teela always had her snake staff and armor AND she was the daughter of the Sorceress, so her becoming the new Green Goddess or a Sorceress herself wasn't too crazy of an idea. Besides, the New 52 Green Goddess gives Green Goddess her own design, not just a green Teela (and the Green Goddess figure needs replacing). With Horokoth Evil-Lyn, the idea is to truly make Teela and Evil-Lyn warrior goddesses like they are described as.

    I don't begrudge fans who want Horokoth Evil-Lyn though.

    Yeah, I don't need another Shadow Weaver, unless she's a new and different design that I haven't seen before.

    I would love to have the Sorceress of Horokoth! She's a very cool design, and I'd love to have her in my collection, along with the Sorceress of Serpos!

    I thought this too, dedset. I thought the same for horokoth hordak and serpos sorceress teela and now horokoth sorceress evil lyn. We got despera why not some these. I am thinking that there is going to be another sorceress added before this comic ends. Plus where are the main characters of he-man, she-ra and shadow weaver. Oh yeah getting ready for their rebirths people wake we are getting newer characters.

    Saw it in the comic. Liked it. Sorceress of Horokoth Evil-Lyn joins Goddess Teela in the ranks of DC Comics interpretations I'd like to see in Classics (eventually).

    Though the design looks pretty cool, no I am in no rush to demand this.

    As a side note I have a sub but have not recieved any comic since July. SIgh...

    ANYTHING to get rid of that truly awful "leafy big-eared helmet" look for DC's Evil-Lyn!

    She is awesome!

    Fell in love with the colours, design and concept straight-away!

    She has jumped to one of my 'must haves' in MOTUC.

    Can't wait to get her in figure form one day.
    TOP 5 MOTUC MUST HAVES:
    1. Starbust She-ra (can double as vintage toy She-ra)
    2. Hunga the Harpy
    3. Gold God Skeletor (movie skeletor)
    4. Hawke
    5. Lady Slither

    Love the idea (since I've sorta been using the idea of the yellow Evil-Lyn as an ancient goddess) but I do wish there was less red. Without any knowledge of her background, you'd look at her and just thing "Horde." Wish it was more Evil-Lyn.

    Teela-Na is a Falcon and Teela is a Cobra, so if they are following the pattern, Evil-Lyn should be a Bat, not this Hordak/Shadow Weaver mess.

    I agree, this design is pretty bad. It's also physically impossible (the flowing parts). She should have a bat motif, sort of like a Shamaness. Have you ever seen Xena Warrior Princess? I would have designed her like Alti the witch, but with a bat motif.

    Also, sorry, but I need for Evil-Lyn to be herself, not some mystical Shakespearean witch. I hated that Teela basically lost her personality in becoming the sorceress, now the same things happened to Evil-Lyn in the books. I need my treacherous, scheming witchy woman back.

    I think her "cape" that connects to the middle of her chest is supposed to be the Horde symbol. It looks a little clunky, but I think that's what they're going for. I'm not sure if something's said about it in the comic, as I haven't had a chance to read the issue yet. I have not received the last 2-3 issues in my subscription, for some reason.

    For some reason I'm getting a Sailor Moon villain vibe from her. It's nice to see a version of a Horde-theme Evil-Lyn, but the DC aesthetic is it's own thing and not my personal favorite. I agree it's an improvement on DC's old design for Evil-Lyn.

    Not really a fan of the comics so not interested in toys of characters from it really.
