    FILMation Mini-Sub - Evil-Lyn - Cream or Yellowish?

    This was kind of a difficult poll to word, because there seem to be many different types of screenshots out there (and of course, all will be off depending on your monitor, etc.) but essentially -

    Do you want the Evil-Lyn in the new FILMation line to be more (#1) cream colored (Caucasian) or (#2) have a yellowish-unearthly tint?

    Number 1 for me.

    Evil-Lyn should be more of a traditional cartoon-caucasian color... not quite as "pink" as Teela, but definitely not yellowish or too tan.

    Cream. I re-watched the entire Filmation series again sometime last year, and I believe the instances of her looking distinctly yellowish are relatively rare.

    Anything that is not Springfield Yellow for Evil-Lyn is welcome. Also, the Filmation EL DOES NOT SHARE clothes with Teela... Extra plus.
    I wish she'd get two capes. A Normal cape and one that can look like this

    She's mostly cream colored in the cartoon (anything else I would consider an error), so I would expect the figure to match that. Maybe there could be an "animation error" chase variant where she's yellow...

    She should look like the toon. I'm not particularly interested in her (or the line as a whole), but that's how she looked, that's how she should arrive.
    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

    Oh Good, I'm glad at both the replies and the poll results LOL.

    Since over the years people have argued that the yellow is accurate, as well, I was honestly a little worried.

    I agree, that's how I remember her, that's how I think she was intended - so I hope that's how she comes out.

    Yeah, it's kind of funny. The original figure was very yellowish, so a yellow CLASSICS remake would be accurate. But a FILMATION version should look 'cream-ish', just like the 'toon. It's simple ABC logic, but you never know.

    I want her to be a cream colour, but she's quite pale in comparison to Teela. Make her look like she doesn't get out in the sun much.
    Myaa!

    I do love the yellow Evil Lyn but that is the toy version. Cream Lyn is the cartoon version and that is the one I would expect in the Filmation line.

    Mmm, cream. I'm down for sweet sweet cream.

    That said, perhaps she does have a very slight yellowish tint to her skin, as some light skinned non-Caucasian people have? In other pics, she appears to have a slight olive skin tone, at least, compared to Teela.

    I voted for example #2; Evil-Lyn in FILMation had a yellowish tint to her skin. It's not as yellow as the First, or classic vintage Evil-Lyn, but it's not exactly Peaches and Cream.

    If the whole point is to look as close to FILMation as possible, you gotta go with the kinda-but-not-quite yellow.
    It's all been done before. Everything to say has already been said. Do me a solid and pretend I posted something witty and original here

    I would agree with your assertion. While in the toon she's not outright yellow, her flesh colored skin does have a hint of yellow compared to others.
