    I am really looking forward to these two! They both look incredible!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Opened Casta and he beautiful face is ruined by "blodge" of plastic on her right eye lid. Which of course is painted over and will result in paint removal if I attempt a fix. Going to ask for a replacement as it's not acceptable. Mind you - first one since Metron in the DC sub last year I felt the need to complain about.

    Okay, I think I'm in love with Castaspella...
    But I can't!! My first and truly love has always been and always will be Teela! Damn you 4H!

    Shokoti looks great too, I love her colors and how pops out from the shelf

    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    My Castaspella arrived today, via UPS. I'm extremely pleased, she is definitely one of my favorites released thus far. She'll stay MOC for now though.

    White eyes really make a figure look blind. Black eyes without the white sclera look very demonic.

    I'm not a POP fan. But, much like the 4H NA designs, these chicks are growing on me.

    You guys never thought I'd ever say anything like THAT did you???

    What a lack of mages we have! It's too bad she's on Etheria 'cause the Masters could use some magical prowess! It's cool to have a straight up magic user on the good side, though there seems to be no lack of magic in the Rebellion.

    Anyway, I LOVE this figure! Great look, and great accessories. The spell blast is TOPS, yo. We need more of those in different colors, STAT. If I had any complaints about her it would be the way the wheel is attached...you turn her head at all and the hair threatens to knock it off. Doesn't bother me too much 'cause I found ways to get around it, but I do wish they woulda messed with some more ideas first before ending it with "yeah, clip it on."

    Overall this is possibly my favorite Rebellion member yet!

    My Castaspella arrived (waiting on Shokoti because I neglected to select the same shipping method for my Filmation sub as my Eternia sub).

    Where to begin…
    Castaspella…simply put…WOW.
    The female face sculpts have been one hit out of the park after another recently. With each successive release, the newest female face becomes my favorite. Casta is no different. In fact, this face is rather beautiful. She's rather striking…and personally, has taken the place as my favorite PoP female (to this point it was Netossa) of the line.

    The sculpt of her hair is pretty much flawless. They did a really excellent job of capturing the Casta I remember from the Filmation toon. I know that for fans of the vintage PoP dolls, that's probably a let down but…she looks rather unique this way…even considering all the parts reuse we have with her. I LOVE the spell blast attachment. I was actually able to fit it over her right hand, which I was hoping for! This way both the spell blast AND her spell casting hand are both visible AND she can be displayed with her shield on at the same time! PERFECT!

    Man…after getting Casta…I REALLY hope the 2014 sub becomes a reality. Because if Glimmer turns out as close to her prototype as Castaspella did…there'll be another fight for best female face sculpt! A BIG thumbs up 4H and Mattel for another gorgeous figure!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    My subs arrived! Opened Shakoti, but I think I'll give Castaspella to my cousin, not that I don't want her (I'll buy a second one) but she just wants her more.

    Couple nitpicks about Shakoti, mine's ankles are loose Also wish she had a spellcasing hand, she has two grasping hands but she didn't come with anything to hold... well not intentionally at least.


    Also her butt is non existent. Even for a MOTUC figure.


    Happy with her otherwise!

    I REALLY wish the 4H would address this on female MOTUC figures. It looks really bad!

    I'm glad she has a cape to cover up her non existant posterior, much like BG Evil-Lyn.
