    I thought that was her cousin Allepsatsac, who had the same design but her color palette was reversed

    Great vid review as always! And Castaspella looks great. Reminds me of the beautiful face sculpt for Netossa, a figure whom I get to admire daily on my desk at work. Her face is the best female the Horsemen have done for this or any line. This being my humble opinion of course.
    Harken to the coming of RIO BLAST!!

    Wish the shield had metallic paint app like Frosta's did, but beyond that she is superb. I have wanted the FILMation colors with the vintage disk since the line started, even though I feared it would be gaudy. Glad to see it's not!

    Can't wait!

    I'm really excited about Casta. It's so exciting to get more of the core Rebels, it feels like it took an eternity to get her added to the ranks.

    The head sculpt really does look great.

    I so SO wish they'd take another turn at the Filmation She-Ra head. She looks so awful by comparison....

    Me too. I would LOVE for the Four Horsemen to get another go at Filmation She-ra, with more detailed tiara and better face apps (not that the paint is any of the 4 horsemen's fault)

    Maybe with Starburst/New Adventures She-Ra? I'd like a face-sculpt with a closed mouth. I'm not a huge fan of the sexy pout/open lips sculpts.

    I like her, but really??? Ram Man, Mantenna, Fang Man, and Jitsu would all rank higher on my figure of the year list and then if it truely is figure of the year and not MOTUC figure of year I don't know what would be the figure of the year?

    Nope. Casta was originally meant to be evil.

    They made it translucent to match her spell blast and hypnotic disc, so I guess all three are supposed to be magical constructs.

    My one nitpick is that her hypno disc isn't loose enough to spin properly. The same flaw that Frosta's staff has.

    Which makes Teela's lack of availability probably more annoying. I do hope there is a Teela 3.0 in the works at some point in the duration of this line.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    We haven't even gotten 2.0 yet....BG Teela is not a 2.0, she is a variant, and one not everyone cares about....2.0 would be like BP She-Ra, be more or less a standard looking Teela updated, with new stuff (like a removable Sorceress cloak or something) and the Female 2.0 buck under it. Otherwise any other Teela would just be a straight Variant....

    And also if it were the case....we'd already have He-Man 6.0 with NA He-Man through variants.

    I can see where you're coming from, but in my world variants are new versions of the character. Just a different way of looking at the same thing.

    Yeah, no kidding. I wouldn't even call them "sexy pout lips". They're more like - WT?? lips. I'll never understand why they were done that way.

    The problem with a Starburst She-Ra is that she wouldn't have the Filmation tiara and THAT also needs a resculpt. It leans forwards, and the wings don't quite sit right or look right.

    I just hope that if they do make a Starburst She-Ra head, she looks HAPPY. All the vintage She-Ra faces looked HAPPY.

    Wouldn't it be awesome if they sculpted a "Heads Pack" with better heads for Frosta and She-Ra?

    (...so they could fleece us again?? What am I thinking!?!?)

    Castaspella looks to be one of the best female figures in the line hands down.

    The only negative I can see is that damn gummy hand. What the heck? It's cheap. I mean seriously?

    Other than that she's beautiful.

    I can't wait to get Glimmer now.
