    I think I'm going to have a go at repainting my Teela's eyes and mouth. (I may cast a spare and paint that, then if I mess it up, I can just cast another one lol!). Actually got a chance to take mine out of her packaging yesterday. Not bad, but some glaring, very obvious issues:


    Half an eyebrow missing.


    Paint splatter

    But, I do like how she looks overall. Needs some TLC with a paintbrush, but I can handle that

    I checked BBTS and I thought I saw that they were sold out. I'm going to check again. Thanks!

    Update: Looks like they only have Teela available. The others are sold out.

    Hmmm, that's too bad about her face. Let us know how the new paint job turns out!

    BBTS still has Tri-Klops and Teela available... but, singles of Hordak and Duncan are gone, as well as the set of four.
    Where are the rest of my New Adventures Classics figures?!?!?

    whoa! this looks like it was kicked around the factory floor before they boxed her up! Heck yes I'd ask for a replacement too!

    Ouch!

    Paint seems to be a problem for Super7... I have a feeling that many of these figures were being handled / assembled before the paint apps had enough time to cure.

    I think one of the boots is backwards on your teela.

    Received my figures today.
    This new Teela looks fantastic.
    I dont understand some of the recent commentary, in hand this figure is a delight.

    It's fine if you got one with decent pain't apps. See the previous post with half of teelas paint apps ruined/smudged off

    To be fair, there have been a boat-load of pictures being posted with broken parts, mis-assembled pieces, and terrible paint apps.

    I think that is where most of the negative commentary is being generated.

    Teela -
    This figure- NOT an easy fix.. first, I boiled her and cut off her legs- shaved down the long pegs that made her look bow legged, & then re-glued it all back together. Her legs and bum look WAY more in proportion now..- also, I removed factory paint and repainted her face. Not 100% there but lots more happy with her now.. iyfyi.jpeg

    Very nice repaint of her face, can you repaint mine?

    Aside from what you mentioned, what's with the right shoulder socket? It looks from the picture as if it's warped or too large. Is this a problem with these figures also?

    Has anyone gotten their figures from big bad toy store yet? I preordered mine from there and still haven’t heard anything. I’m becoming annoyed

    Wow! That is incredible!!

    Now that's a figure worth her plastic! Take note Super7, when we said we wanted a Filmation Teela, all you had to do was fix the face paint. (And hips, and height... )

    I love what people are doing with Teela's face painting! Fantastic work! Shows the 4H sculpt is good, and that we really do perhaps just need that new face printing tech!

    I'd have a go, but it's a pain, and I want to keep my Teela's face in its original paint for re-sale as a relic before the year 2030 when we finally see the release of Filmation Teela 3.0

    I've tried to remove her head to swap to the Talon Fighter Teela's body since I am not happy with the height and wide hips. Then the worst thing happened. A very thin plastic ring holding the peg to the head snapped off. Now I have a beheaded Teela. VERY BAD quality of plastic. I have no words.

    I understand it in a way that when Brian states that it is currently the best Teela face they can do in that scale, what he really mean is that it is Super7's best given that it is painting intended for mass production, painting at a given cost and painting given their current actual access on machinery / technology.

    Painting Teela's face by a talented artist will make her more beautiful and filmation accurate and that is awesome specially with lot of talented people in this community but really is not surprising. The challenge are really these: Can she be painted that way manually/ without machinery consistently? In mass production? And at a certain cost within established operating budget? If that is answered all YES then Super7 made a terrible mistake and should be lock in a vilest dungeon inside Snake Mountain.

    For a little while at least. The saddest thing is the near-irremovable nature of her head as evidenced a couple of posts above... It kills the chances of us receiving the very same head for our Teela re-released in a potential head-pack with proper deco.




    Beware all who try to pop Teela's head!
