    G, what a surprise, my subs won't be shipped until Monday, the 15th at the earliest. Such great subs. And my g/f is now asking why I just said "Maybe I should sell off everything MOTUC."
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Yeah, this far into the line reversed parts on figures is really inexcusable, especially since it's occurred numerous times.

    Staff came out much nicer than I thought - and she looks great with fixed arms. Your pics also make the hair look not-so-bad (I wasn't a fan of the translucent). I already liked her, but when I get her we may be a bit closer to love.

    thats what I'm going to do. I feel he would look awesome with HP hands & a horde arm band.
    Also I've been working on custom repainting Robotos weapon hands in Cy Chops colors.
    very excited to get this odd ball character.

    I gotta be honest.

    Frosta's face is looking jacked up again to me. Too much makeup ended up on her. Such a shame this figure had some great potential. I am still debating over whether to get her or not.

    Due to the forearm used he arm band does not easily go over the elbow. I tried but didn't want to force it.

    Gee, I wonder if I should comments how I have heard already how one person's Cy-Chop arrived with a huge crack down his chest?

    My figures all arrived today - love them. Question about Frosta - did she use her wand in Filmation toon or did she just have freezing/ice power? Can't remember and it's driving me nuts, lol - thanks!

    She did use her wand in one episode, but it was smaller and white.

    You should take some pics too

    A couple quick pics

    After looking at Frosta, She-Ra and the Sorceress, I do think they should have gone She-Ra white with her. Or at least Sorceress white (which is a bit less white). Frosta's white - is gray. Did ToyGuru ever say why this was done? She looks ok - but it does seem odd.

    Mattel likes using that grayish white for everything...Teela, Sorceress, She-Ra and Adam all have that grayish white color instead of the brilliant white from Bubble Power She-Ra.

    Sorry BCR, she never does. The wand was never in the Filmation series at all.

    I got mine today, the day they went on sale, which I was particularly impressed with since I was worried that the He-Man & Battle Cat birthday sale would interfere with subs shipping first, but Mattel and DR pulled it off!!!

    A few pics to follow soon!

    Still waiting on my DB Skelly...

    Any confirmation for black plastic on Rattlor so far?
    I so hope this won't be the case with him.

    Seeing these pics...it's pretty clear her face never came together. It's not...ugly of course, but it isn't good either. She's making some weird face, that's for sure!

    Anyone going to take a crack at making a customized head?

    Just came back from Mern-ra and got my Frosta! Thank you Mern-ra!
    We had decided to perform the infamous arm-swapping procedure together, and we did!

    Picture this: Mern-ra and Oulala sharing a blowdrying trying to bring their armless Frostas back to life!
    We went for the Elbow dislocation technique. I've been customizing figures for years and I'm pretty bold with what I sometimes attempt.
    But I had never removed elbow joints on a figure.

    Is it easy?

    Well, one bit of advice: if you're not really comfortable with dismemberment technique, swap the biceps instead!
    I managed to pop the elbows, switch them and put them back on my Frosta in less than 2 minutes...However, Mern-ra's Frosta did, for some unknown reason, resist any attempts to put the elbow pin back in. It took about an hour of intense blowdrying, cursing and worrying until I finally popped the elbow pin back into the sockets. As I'm typing this, the tip of my fingers still bloody hurts. (From the burn and from pushing too hard!) It's like I have blisters at the tip of my digits! I HUUUUURT!

    Frosta is really really nice. The face paint turned out pretty well, at least on mine. I was probably the only fan of the original reveal with the slight OTT tartish make up. I wish she still has that luscious snarly smile but at least the dimple is still visible!

    As much as I was always a fan of not using a bright white on Frosta - It looks better with the dark blue, methinks - both Mern-ra and mine are SUPER DARK. Which does give her a bit of an edge, but it looks way darker than the SDCC prototype I photographed last July.

    I can't believe NO REVIEWER photographed or even talked about Frosta's derrière. Yes folks, Frosta has a sculpted BUM! It's a ground breaking improvement! Poor Teela, she had zero junk in the trunk and anatomically it always bothered me. So yeah, Frosta has sculpted half cheeks on the end part of the upper leg. It's very, very well done and I hope all the future females will benefit from that update.

    photo 1-1.JPGphoto 2-1.JPGphoto-2.JPG

    PS. Rattlor has black plastic on his balljoint shoulders. We checked on Mern-ra's Rattlor and there was a tiny minuscule minor scratch underneath the joint through which you can see the cursed black plastic!
