    Loss of the Boot cut on Females....how do you feel?

    Just to get feedback on the loss of the Female Boot cut, prevalent since Frosta, even though I get why they did it to her....

    Do you think they should have cut it, or do you think it should have been left alone for the ones that have the regular sized boots?
    Being that Thigh high boots would indeed look stupid with an articulation cut running through them at the calf.

    I personally think the boot cut added depth and a little realism to what appears now to be a more toyish and cheaper look with that articulation point cut.

    It is not a deal breaker for me, I voted don't care either way.
    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 voted NO.

    Why cut an articulation point? Thatīs the reason this figures are more fun than the vintage toys. The more articulation the better!

    This decision really annoys me. I don't see the sense in it and it limits the posability of figures. I don't understand why they have cut this articulation.

    I don't like paying the price point we do for less, especially when the price went up not too long ago.

    With Frosta, I didn't mind losing it because it might looked badly considering the thigh-high boots.

    But Octavia? Starla? Bad decision.

    This is pretty much how I feel as well.

    Totally agree. I hate that this has been cost reduced out of the ladies. It bugs me every time I look at Starla, Netossa and Octavia.

    That's what I think, too. I also voted no.

    I'm more bothered by the removal of the ankle rocker joint, as seen on the Teela boots. Every female figure should get those.

    I didn't realize it went back to Starla....I don't have her, but I never realized in pics she didn't have it.

    Apparently they're doing it to the POP girls predominately....as Sorceress has the cut, and she had new boots. Frosta, I get it, but Not Netossa and Octavia....and by default Peekablue won't have it.

    Makes me Wonder if Shokoti (Filmation MOTU) will have it or not....if you look at her, it looks as if she is meant to. While Castaspella (POP) doesn't get it....

    They still have a rocker joint, but it's like the Male boots....personally I like the solid feet instead of having cuts on the feet.

    My thoughts exactly- that boot cut happened to be one of the things that finally got me collecting Classics. Shame if they're gone for good...

    Boot cut is probably the least intrusive looking articulation point. No reason to ever cut it.

    I don't really like the loss of useful artic, but I do understand why they left the boot cut off some figures. Helps keep the boot at good aesthetic.

    well no, because It's a great feature.

    But if it helped save money to keep making them, well, what can I say?

    I would much rather have it than not, but I almost really should just vote dont care either way because ultimately it's unfortunate, but no big deal.

    IF we were to get to all the POP girls, then it wouldn't bother me. But if we don't, then it'll be very difficult to customise Peekablue as we'll either have to paint the whole leg, or cut off the boot and drill a hole for the new flesh coloured leg to fit into.
