    She looks so cool. Can't wait to get her Tuesday. The so-called "pizza crotch" looks fine to me here because it looks more like a loincloth. Though I do agree it wouldn't be great for every figure.

    Why are the tentacles a different color/shade of green? Seems off.

    The only Filmation screen shots I could find show her tentacles being a darker shade of green than her skin tone:

    Crotch piece looks fine to me. I'm convinced her face is modeled after Angelina Jolie.

    Unfortunately the character didn't wear a loincloth in the Filmation cartoon. But beyond that, it would be a pretty silly looking loincloth if it were meant to be one. It just feels like a poor/sloppy design decision to me, and it doesn't improve by re-imagining it as a loincloth. Basically I consider this to be an error, especially when comparing her to both the cartoon and the prototype figure. I don't believe that she was intended to have a "loincloth" or a "skirt".

    Mainly what I worry about is figures like Glimmer and Angella. If Shokoti ends up correct I will feel safer.

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

    Also...get her into the line!

    I think we she looks awesome and its great to see some if the international fans getting their figures do quickly.

    I'm ok with with the lower part of her leotard. I think think this was more likely a flaw that happened in translation from prototype to figure or mabey in the tooling process that didn't give the soft plastic as much curve as it should have had. I highly doubt it was a design choice.

    Exactly!
    She wears a unitard in Filmation. No skirt. No loin cloth.
    There was no new tooling needed as it was already done with Captian Glenn. Not only...Shokoti has the right bottoms.
    The only thing i can think of is that it costs more and with her tentacles & bow already cost too much??

    This is horrifying since we have been talking about female crotch problems for more than a year and there is nothing to make us think they can do any better.

    It does seem to have more of a curve now that I looked at more pictures here.

    Indeed.


    I guess its fine to redesign these characters? I agree it does look ok, but what if this was your favorite character? Imagine Snout Spout, Fang Man, or Heman with a Pizza skirt. At this point, Mattel has the much coveted filmation license, this is a filmation character, and we get this. As said, what if Glimmer, Angella, or others get this really neat but not accurate pizza skirt? Will that be cool? How hard is it to do this? I guess it must be the holy grail of toy making... female leotards...

    I'm sorry, but with all due respect, what are you talking about? Octavia does not have the same tunic as Captain Glenn. It IS a new tool, no other figures have that same lower leotard piece, it was tooled for her. They certainly accomplished the leotard look on Captain Glenn better, but this is a newly tooled piece. I honestly cannot conspiracy theory myself enough to think this was a deliberate design choice. It was most likely an unfortunate error that happened in tooling where the master piece for the mold didn't hold its curve during the tooling process. Since the cost of tooling is one of the most expensive costs associated with production it's understandable they would not re-tool the entire plate that includes that piece.

    And Darkmoon766, Octavia has been one of my most anticipated figures of the year and my most anticipated Filmation figure when they announced they had the rights...so I would say she is one of my favorite characters. I just don't think the leotard is a re-design, it was most like a production error and, as far as production error are concerned, a minor enough one to not cause me much concern. If you, or anyone else wants to treat this issue as a deal breaker or a sign of the end of times, that's fine. I'm not going to let it ruin my enjoyment of this figure.

    I know she had a unitard or whatever in the cartoon, but the action figure of her looks absolutely great the way it came out, so I'm not going to complain. To me, it just looks like a skirt... and it goes fine with the shoulders part of her outfit that is also a bit "pointed"... so, as a whole, Octavia's outfit looks cohesive to me, and that's all that matters. Can't wait to get mine!

    One of the best to date. Such a shame that they couldn't get the review samples out in time.

    I got mine today and absolutely love her. One of the best figures of the entire line so far!!!! I really like that the tentacles can be placed in two different ways one where they are pointing down and inside towards her or the other where they are up and pointing out in attack mode.

    Got mine today and really like the figure! I've got a slightly loose ankle on mine like another poster, which makes her a bit difficult to stand in some poses, but it seems pretty stable now that I found a good balance.

    WOW! I can't wait to get mine! She'll be here Tuesday. She looks like she turned out REALLY well! Based on all the pics, she seems fairly posable and the tentacles looks very nice! She's quite menacing looking with those things spread out!

    What happened to all the "Filmation characters are lackluster and under-detailed"?

    Um, this one looks every bit as good as most other figures in the line....And fits perfectly....just like in my opinion Randor and Fang Man do as well.

    Well she's not alone out of the last few females I've gotten, Sherrilyn is the only one that had tighter ankles, seems to still be an issue with the girls....I'm assuming my Octavia will have them as well. And I've no doubt Castaspella will succumb to them as well.

    Not everyone has Octavia yet. I'm sure you'll be hearing that from somebody.

    I wish the would have kept her eyes red like the prototype. Thats how they are in the cartoon too. I wonder why they changed that???

    Other than that, and the triangle "skirt" thing, I think she looks very cool. I'm looking forward to getting her.
