    Isn't Castaspella the Queen of Mysticor? strange the bio doesn't mention this
    In translucent purple would be great! ("evil" color)
    Re: the bio. Yet even more proof that the writer knows diddly squat about PoP and its background. Looks like he pasted together clips from various Barbie bios!

    Dan, can u put her head on Teela's body? It might be a cool 200x Teela variant!
    I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!

    The line was planned to continue PAST 2016, not until. With the original roadmap, in 2017, we would have been finishing up all of the NA heroes.

    I was right. This bio was written back in 2009, before Mattel got the Filmation Rights. Stuff is taken from the style guide and TG usually doesn't go back and make alterations.

    I think the figure looks great, she may be my favorite female in the line based on the video.

    Thanks for the review Dan, she looks great. I never collected the vintage POP figures back in the day, but I am so glad MOTUC has included them in the line as IMHO they have turned out quite well and really fit in the whole MOTU umbrella. Looking forward to more POP!

    Another great review, Dan! Castaspella is a character I never knew I wanted, but there's so much potential there, and I can't wait to have her in my collection. That magic burst effect is too cool, and like a lot of others, I hope we see it in different colors down the road.

    Awesome post! It's great to hear people being converted and I'm not surprised Castaspella has that effect. She's ace, after all!

    I'd love to see Glimmer come with a 'spell' blast. One in pink would look hot. And perhaps a shadow coil attachment for Shadow Weaver in a future Weapons Pak.

    I really like her colors! Very excited for her and hoping that we get her magic recolored in a weapons pak.

    Well, you are justified in that some of the POP ladybird books, or mini-comics (I'm not sure which), Castaspella is shown as evil and working with Catra and Entrapta, that's what she was originally meant to be.

    An excellent idea; the spell blast could be done in multiple colors for Weaver, Glimmer, Sorceress (it does fit on the regular female hand from what Dan says), Starla, etc. Heck, I wouldn't mind multiple colors in a single weapons pack; this would be something I think a lot of folks would want a variety of.

    As far as the figure goes: WOW! If this is how all the final versions look, they knocked this figure out of the park into the next ball-field. The face is gorgeous, and really evokes the Filmation look from the facial structure to the costume, with some added details to spruce it up. If all the subsequent female denizens of Etheria turn out this good, I will be very happy with my rebels.

    That's not how she was originally designed. Thank Mattel Design.

    But the clip seems just as magic to me as her spell wheel, yet another magic effect, if you will.

    Yes, Peekablue needs a different approach.

    Actually in Pixel Dan's walk through from NYTF he said the where'll was held on there with sticky tack but thee plan from the beginning was going to be to use a clip to attach it.

    If Castaspella is this beautiful, I can't wait to see characters like Angella and Mermista..unless they let the Frosta person sculpt their faces.

    I think Castaspella looks great and can't wait for her. I think she may be one of my favorite figures this year and one I've been looking forward to most in the whole collection. I'm glad they used the cartoon colours though. As much as I like a lot of the old POP toy designs, I always thought her toy orange and gold kind of cladhed and looked bland, but like how the blue and yellow stood out more.
