    Do you want MOTUC Netossa in your collection?


    Source

    So you want MOTUC Netossa in your collection? Or do you wish Mattel chose a different character to include in the line? Is this figure worth ~$26 + shipping?

    I'm not the biggest POP fan, though I have watched all the episodes and could have easily picked ~7 characters from it that would have made much better figures than Netossa, who if memory serves only received a single appearance in the show. Even then she didn't do anything besides being captured by the Horde. The design is painfully bland, and the plastic net reminds me of some product you'd see in a kitchen or bathroom. She comes with a shield for an accessory and that's it. Ugly light blue hair and black eyebrows. If it comes with the subscription, at least it can be resold.

    I never heard of her before this announcement. Her outfit eliminates her from being a random Eternian so I don't want her in my collection.

    I will be selling her before she arrives at my doorstep.

    She is about as important to She-Ra as Clamp Champ is to He-Man. Not much to her, last entry character, but nicely diversifies my shelf. She doesn't have enough to be valued at $25, but does scrape by on her Filmation good looks and some added toy aesthetics. She should be colored in metallics, but because they followed the toon so closely, her silvers became light blue, and she looks like black Frosta; very derivative. She's missing essential toy details, but the reason I am sure is because in the body of the line, low-selling C-listers will get just enough, while well-selling A-listers get the extras. It's not the character's fault Mattel chose to stack the deck against her. She could have been handled like Flipshot, but they treated her like Stratos...yet somehow winding up with less.

    I would be forgivable if we hadn't seen what the Four Horsemen are capable of. They use a vendor that is capable of making fabric, but the Horsemen don't want to deal in fabric. They claim it will mess up the aesthetic of the line, but as a working net, she'd be the exception. She wouldn't stand out any more than flocked Moss Man, or furry Grizzlor. What makes them special?

    Sometimes I feel they run into a creative wall with PoP when all the elements are right there, but seen by only a distinctive few. This is right up there with She-Ra's comb hatchet or Bow's attached quiver...just...really?

    She needs a "net" not only a netted cape that blankets a foe. She could have had a BP She-Ra sword (sticking to re-use), but she wasn't even worth that?

    Like I said, she's about a necessary as Clamp Champ. She skates by with one media-accurate look with barebones toy details. But in a $25 year, she didn't get enough to plus her up, and make her look compelling, not just extremely gorgeous, which she is.

    Like Clamp Champ she will be on my shelf, but I will be waiting to find her extras accessories in a weapons pack.

    Sure, I'll take her.

    Yes I like her in my MOTUC collection. She could have had an additional accessory for the price though.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    I won't mind, but I know there will be other 2013 figures I don't want to keep.

    But if Leech's net is any indication, better keep her MOSC, or at least don't play with her cape much.
    Recent....Eldor
    Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Wanted....
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

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

    Of course I want her. A black female action figure that isn't Storm? That rarity alone makes her a must.

    Wait...she isn't Storm is she?

    J/k. I can't wait for "Araea- Mistress of the Skies" to arrive. Yeah- I had to re-imagine her whole character. Her super "net tossing" abilities are about as stupid as a "champion of clamping". It's fun fixing mid 80's Mattel's ethnically biased failures.

    I'll be happy to own her, though I do hope to see an appropriately colored sword, staff, or other weapon released for her.
    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

    I've never heard of her before, is she supposed to have a mask? I think she looked great personally and she has a place on the shelf next to all the other she-ra/pop/great rebellion figures.

    I voted No, as she is my least favourite She-Ra character and dont really need her for my collection, but I will have her in my collection anyway, and not sell the figure, because she exists and I am cool with that.

    I dont like her in as much as I see her as a bad design all around and I wish the one black POP girl was better. That being said, again, I love this line, and so even though I wouldnt have chose her to be made, and would be fine with a collection without her in it, I am completely cool with having one. The back of the shelf needs filling out as well, and she does have merit, ect ect.

    Yes but the cape is shameful, and hair are little convincing.

    Netossa has always been one of my favorite characters and I'm so pumped to be getting her. She was in several of the later episodes, which my mom taped for me and I watched over and over again growing up.

    Yes.

    But, she could have been much better with "silver" highlights instead of pale blue on the skirt, head-fans, etc and if she came with the helmet and an appropriate weapon (either repainted BP She-Ra sword or repainted Green Goddess spear).

    In its current form, the figure doesn't really reflect great value for money. And I'm also unsure why her "cape" ate up so much of the budget when it's only going to function as a cape. Wouldn't it just be the same material as all of the other capes, but with holes in it? Toyguru may say that it is a "weapon", but who is going to pose/display Netossa holding the cape instead of wearing it?

    Yes, yes and thrice YES! She's amazingly beautiful. Honestly, this is the Netossa I've wanted since I first heard of her about fifteen years ago.

    For those who haven't' seen it, watch When Whispering Woods Last Bloomed - it's a flashback story that shows Netossa to be feisty and FIERCE. She and Spinnerella are a great partnership.

    I wish she came in a two-pack with her dear "sister" Spinnerella-- but I will absolutely take Netossa. She'll end up having more weapons, as befits a huntress, but I'm glad she's coming.

    Did I ever grow up? Probably not. I'm sure the day-glo socks gave it away anyway.

    I want them all! and as bBrian said there is a lot of clever part reuse in the vintage figures, I took this pic on the weekend.



    as you can see from just this group.

    Peek A Blu & Netossa
    Flutterina & Spinnerella
    Castaspella & Entrapta
    Sweet Bee and Catra

    all share sculpts!

    which makes me even more curious as to why Mattel would limit the reuse of Netossas Bodice by sculpting the hip armor on it and not make it part of the skirt!

    Yep, sure do
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I voted No....but that's cause I won't pay full price for her. I'd take her at 1/2 off on Cyber Monday or something like that...she's nice looking, but toward the bottom of my list in terms of wants
