    Congrats.

    I can't wait to have mine but it will still be for a while. I however won't do the matte spray technique, all my Super7 figures is ok by itself, the figure shine seems to be "worse" only on photos. My Teela and Sorceress are both ok imho.

    But i respect those who uses matte paint on their figures, it does closely resemble the painted prototype after this matte painting technique.

    The gloss really isn't that bad on this wave. It's more a matter of personal preference. I tend to prefer matte finish on everything. I have even sprayed other toylines as well.

    It does make the figure of yours nice.

    Actually that's the best one I've seen! She looks pretty ok! the one I had the eye wonk was terrible. Sold it for 90 on EBAY and ordered a new one from BBTS for 50. Fingers crossed she half as pretty as yours.

    I use Tamiya Color Flat Clear spray. You can find it mostly on hobby sites and ebay. I love it.

    Agreed. As many have said before, painting the faces really makes them look so much more toon accurate, and she needs it. I also think that the female characters have such delicate features that they have to be executed better to look right. If you look at the prototype and then the production She-Ra, not only is the painted skin tone better but the attention in the eyes and shape of the lips is a big part of what captures the likeness.

    I think the She-Ra sculpt survived tooling better than Teela, she just needs a repaint. So far I have repainted all of the Super 7 females and they look so much better.

    Well I received my two She-Ra's from BBTS and I'll join the chorus of those saying she looks absolutely fantastic in person. To me she came out perfect, this is the Filmation She-Ra I've been wanting for over 30 years!

    Looks like BBTS got all the good ones! So glad I ordered an additional one from them!

    Yep, she's a total winner, glad I ordered two.

    Obviously she doesn't match that one convention prototype but she *does* match S7's official promo image as long as you get a good one. I think that this is the best She-ra figure ever made bar none. Well done S7, keep it up!
