    Spinnerella!

    Look who I just found on eBay! Snapped her up in a small lot

    I paid around £40 all together with shipping and she came with some other stuff. Butterflyer i think it's called? (with box) and Angella.

    Also these accessories.

    Is the pink shield spinnerella's? I didn't see it until i'd bought the lot... lol. And what is the pink thing next to the gold brush? anyone help?

    I'm excited to receive her! I'm not a huge vintage she-ra collector but this was too good to pass up! Never thought i'd find her for that kind of price!

    Something about the hair doesn't look quite right to me. Mine has some pink stripes within her purple mane, and it seems like this should one should have "more" hair than it does. I'm not saying it's a fake, just that it looks a bit different than mine. However, what is nice is that it appears the feet of the boots do not appear to have paint chipped off as most others do as they were placed in the spinning stand that caused that. At any rate, congrats on finding one!

    At first i thought it was glimmer due to the hair! But i presumed it was just the picture. I'll let you know what she's like when she gets here.

    I agree with wayne-klops about the hair. That's the first thing I noticed. She should definitely have dark pink streaks mixed in with the purple. That's definitely her shield, but it's beside Flutterina's skirt and that's sending up a bit of a red flag. I'd be wary just in case. I'm hoping this is all in my head because I sincerely hope you got a good one. That's a great deal, and huge congrats are in order!

    As for the pink thing beside the brush, I have no idea. Sorry. Good luck in your search though!

    Thanks! Flutterina's hair wasn't that curly though - right? I'd say the hair looks far too "old" to have been bothered to make a fakey. The person never advertised this as spinnerella - just she-ra + 2 dolls. So one presumes the seller didn't even know it was spinnerella. Otherwise - i'd be wondering too.

    Done a quick zoomy. Looks like there's pink there - maybe faded. Phew?!

    yeah, the close-up does seem to show some pink in it. It's always nice (for us) when sellers don't really know what they have and we can snatch it up for a good price

    That definitely looks better. Flutterina's hair isn't curly at all, so that's a good sign. Make sure you post pictures when you receive her. I'm anxious to know for sure. Great find!

    She's here! pink streaks and all! fantastic condition really. Only issue is the "goop" in her hair from the elastic band. It's gone hard. I've gone some way to fixing it but it will take a bit of time. anyone got any tips on how to get that out of the hair?

    I'll post pics soon!
