    Yeah, it is, just like Wun-Dar....hopefully it's less noticeable in person. It's whatever, but it does kind of matter....

    I just don't know why they can never match paint to plastic color, at least for skin tones.

    Hm, to me seems like the weakest of the POP figures so far. Would definitely rank her below Star Sisters.

    That's going to vary person to person I'm afraid, and likely based on our individual lighing set-ups & standards, if any.

    What is not really noticeable (different than not noticeable) to one person may be glaring to another. I think/hope that I will be fine with Casta, but Dan & I do often see figures through 2 different lenses. At least that is my perception based on his videos.
    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'm glad they chose to go with a deeper blue than the turquoise we saw in some prototypes. She looks absolutely beautiful. This one was a slam dunk on the part of 4H.

    ????

    I personally think she's one of the best Females in the line. That's a seriously opposite ends of the spectrum differences in personal opinion, as opposed to everyone else who's posted so far.

    She is perfect. Man the Horsemen are really starting to hit their stride with the females. Netossa, Octavia, and now Castaspella have all turned out beautiful. The face sculpts and face apps have been great. I really hope we see more than one female character revealed at SDCC! Now if they can find a way to resolve the leotard issue.

    She really does look amazing. Love the face sculpt & the vibrant colors. I especially like the bolts of lightening on her. The wheel spin thingy is pretty lame. But that lime green spell caster is awesome! Well done 4H. I think I actually like her better than Shokoti.

    Good review Dan.

    Maybe we could get that blast repainted in a weapons pack for Shadow Weaver.

    Isn't Castaspella the Queen of Mysticor? strange the bio doesn't mention this

    They still haven't gotten their bottoms right yet....and some still have looser ankles, but otherwise the sculpts are really good. I own all but 3 of the MOTUC Females, it would have been 2, but I had to sell Shadow Weaver, passed on Explodess, and BG Teela just didn't do anything for me....she's not my Teela.

    Her face and hair sculpt is beautiful and i have to admit the colors look good even though iīm not a fan of her FILMATION appearance, as a figure i loved her in FILMATION i didnīt liked her. The voice, her stories, her attitude…i simply never liked her in the cartoon.

    The figure on the other side is gorgeous!

    Iīm not pleased with the clip on wheel. It looks cheap and thatīs something i have never thought before regarding MOTUC.

    And i truly hope that idea/system is not used for Peekablue since that wheel was the vintage way of an action feature and not really a wheel but more like a magic effect and Peekablues feathers are part of her body and shouldīt be removable like that.

    Iīm really looking forward to her but i know i wonīt display mine with that wheel !

    Very nice figure! Would be nice to have the magic-disc in a weapons pack in translucent yellow with sparks for Starla.

    My #2 POP want, and she is OMG uber awesome freaking fantastically gorgeous! I'm so happy! She looks just like I wanted.

    Worst part is she's NEXT months figure and I'm saving her for my birthday, so she'll be here for about 6 days before I open her.
    Eh, who am I kidding? My will power won't hold that long. Heck, I'll probably run to the UPS truck before the driver gets it in park, start bouncing up and down, all while screaming "Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie!"

    I agree that they 4H are really knocking it out of the park with the females now...maybe it's a blessing that most of them have been saved until now, haha. They are going to be amazing from here forward!!!

    This was my first thought as well. There was so much they could have pulled from for her, yet the entire bio sounds like it was for somebody else. Also "special friends" with Angella and Frosta? I barely even remember her interacting with either of them. Unless its referring tp how they are all rulers of their lands, but even then it doesn't actually mention that fact at all.

    Great review Dan! Sad there was no "Comparison Time". If I were closer, I'd of sent you my Vintage Casta to use..
    The figure looks great, but I feel her face paint, while clean, is a little dull.

    Can you please tell me what colour the head is moulded in? Thanks.
