    MOTU Classics BG Evil-Lyn Video Review by Pixel Dan

    Alright guys, sorry for the wait! Here's Battleground Evil-Lyn!



    NOTE: It's already been pointed out to me that I missed the fact that her gauntlets are suppose to have a new articulation point. I went back and rechecked my figure. Turns out I missed them becuase they were stuck, but I worked them loose and sure enough, she has swivels at the gauntlets! Sorry I missed that in the video!!!

    NOTE #2: BG Evil-Lyn got moved to December. Ignore that part where I said she's a November release.

    Well...she's certainly better than that horrid yellow Teela repaint we have now. Now we've got a purple Teela repaint.

    1. I love the colors on the weapons. I like the gitd orb.

    2. The un-helmeted head is okay.

    3. No squishy Catra hand is great.

    Other than that this figure is nothing more than a repaint. Her colors don't match her father the Faceless One either. Seems like that would be a no brainer.

    The 4H and Mattel need to try again. They failed with this figure.

    Call me when an Evil Lyn exists that's not a cheap repaint of Teela.


    That was a very good review Dan.

    She is superb! Thanks Dan!

    The only qualm I have is that her 'Unhelmeted' Left Eye seems a little wonky! but hopefully that was a single figure issue and not a Paint app problem!

    was also interesting to see in the Comparison with the 1st ed, her gauntlets in adifferent position!

    also that non Grip hand allows so many posing options! So Happy with her!

    thanks Dan

    That's because the gauntlets have articulation as I mentioned above. Sorry i missed pointing that out in the video!

    I know this one is going to have a very mixed reaction. I'll reiterate that I agree that a full on 200x inspired Lyn with a unique outfit would have been better, and I still want that. But I do also really like the colors used on this figure. I think she looks great, and much better than the Yellow version.

    Can't wait either, looks so cool and i'm glad the hand is not as soft as Catras. The glowing wand is cool too.

    I'm not liking the unhelmeted head, like I want to. With the gaunt cheekbones, she just looks too old to me......and it's not because of the white hair.

    Anything glow-in-the-dark is awesome! I'm glad they put that in there, but they do owe us, for selling a complete repaint!

    Ditto!! She is SO close to being perfect. Oh well. She is still incredibly awesome!! She will definitely be my preferred Evil Lynn for display purposes

    Helmet head = gorgeous
    Unhelemted head = decent (face not painted as beautifully as the helmeted head for some reason...back of the hair looks odd)

    Accessories = good (first version had 7 accessories, this version has 6)

    The arm bands look great from TheFwoosh's pictures. So, that's a super cool update. Firmer hand = awesome. I figured the "safety concern" nonsense we heard about Catra wasn't really the case. They just used the same plastic on the whip, sword and hand.

    I DO wish they delayed her until female buck 2.0 was ready though, so she could have got a proper MYP or 200X, two piece dress. So...that disappoints me.

    She does look nice overall though.

    Pixel Dan: Could you please take a picture of JUST BG Evil-Lyn's cape (the front)? You can lay it down on something and snap the picture. If you have time. Please and thank you.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Thanks Dan, good review. I'm very excited about this figure but I do hope for another Evil Lyn down the road with a 200X outfit.

    Was it me or did her eyebrows look odd on the helmet-less head? The left looked thicker and right one higher. I hope that was just a cause of this being a early proto figure.

    100% happy with this figure, can not wait to pose her with my keldor and i love the open hand, can be a spell hand or hand on her hip like she always does.

    and im sorry the guys that dont like the new head, need glasses. She looks amazing!

    Man o man!

    First of all, I cracked up when you started posing her next to all the evil creatures she's released. A woman scorned...

    Secondly, this figure is GORGEOUS. Seriously - the color scheme is just fantastic. I feel like the paint on both faces came off a lot better than the yellow/blue version (though that'll always be may "main" Evil-Lynn) and the helmetless head looks so cool.

    I love that spell-casting hand! It's funny how different it seems on her versus Catra. I like the poses you can get out of her.

    It just kills me that I have to wait 2 months for her. Why was she moved out December again? With the Wind Raider moving... it seems like it would have been better to haver hear come out earlier now.
