    I agree with you 100%
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Time to start a petition for a vintage netted cape to be included in a weapons pak! It looks absolutely great on her, better than the molded one!

    Netossa with the vintage cape looks GREAT!

    I'm getting two Netossa figures as I have two subs. One I'm keeping the same, but one I'm thinking of experimenting with. I don't have a vintage Netossa, but making her a net shouldn't be too difficult, I'd think. Even if I have to get some sort of white netting and dye it or paint it. I'm just not sure if I'll try to use the plastic frame this one comes with (and cut out the middle and replace with netting) or do something unique entirely. Using silver fabric (maybe with a wire in the bottom seam for posing) seems like a good idea.

    Not sure if her head dress is right. Are those huge earrings. I feel it's missing something.

    I must agree, the vintage fabric net-cape looks much better than the fly swatter they gave her in Classics.

    Wrong again my friend. You are all over the map with your "ideas". The term was around before Walking Dead. Go visit the site "urban dictionary" if you want to educate yourself.

    That is a GREAT idea!

    He never said the term was created on the Walking Dead.

    The idea of it being racist, is rubbish anyway. The only way that could be the case is if the people wanting her to wield a spear didn't want Randor and Whiplash to keep theirs. As long as characters of various races wield spears, the oft draw card of racism has no leg to stand on.

    Guys, let's keep this about Netossa. If you want to discuss whether something is a racial slur or not, please take it to the Tar Swamp.

    I have to admit I've never been especially interested in the character, but all these arrival pics? She looks like a total badass and I'm really digging her more and more. And that face is beautiful!

    Wow, that looks amazing, such an improvement. I don't own the vintage figure, but I think i'll have to make a custom net for the Classics one now.

    This. This makes me happy. I have faith that people who don't have much of an affinity for, or any nostalgia for, the old pop line or cartoon, will see that these characters are pretty awesome, and we have the 4H to thank for making people see the fun to be had in them!!

    She displays really well! I'm loving this figure. I knew I liked her, but having her in hand she's blows me away.

    The face is incredible. The Horsemen's female head sculpt don't always translate well in final figure form, but this is one of them. There's so much life and character to her.

    I like the spear display wise, but since one of her weapons is a net, I always figured another would be a club. Afterall, once you have a net on someone, you don't want to take a blade to it cuz it'll cut/damage the net. Better to club them So despite the vintage having a sword, I always pictured a bo staff or a swinging mace. Then again, once the net is on and they're stabbed, it's probably game over anyway huh? LOL.

    Also, I think she'd be a perfect nemesis for Spikor. Once there's a net on him he's screwed, with all those spikes he'll never get out of it. LOL

    How old am I? Jeez.

    least wanted pop girl but at least shes outta the way. spear is perfect if not so wrong too...she needs a trident ala gladiators: trident and net. will most likely do a repaint of another tou trident, or just make one.

    Holy moly! Of COURSE Indiana Jones isn't PC! Just because it's channeling a vintage source material doesn't mean it's immune to modern criticism!

    She looks nice!

    I'd like to go full gladiator style and grab a trident for her, if I can find one that doesn't make her look too aquatic themed standing there with fishing gear in blue and white. Maybe I can make a 2 pronged Etherian model. Which would be a...bident? Need more research. Maybe sculpt it to match her details.

    I suppose she can hold whatever weapon she wants since half the purpose of a fighting net is to snatch the weapon out of an opponents hand. Probably has quite a collection at home.

    Since I never collected POP (my sister did and not for long) she seems to be a great character and addition, a female version of Clamp champ to an extent (a possible love interest as well). Now I know many are at odds with her not getting her headdress, and in some ways I feels it's missing as well; I wish they would styled her hair (maybe braided it) to give her head sculpt some flavor.

    Wow, Netossa looks amazing with her 80's, fabric cape! I might have to try and make an extra one for her.

    I'm really looking forward to getting Netossa; the pics are great!
    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

    That vintage cape looks amazing on her. Is it bad when the vintage accessory looks better than the classics version?
