    I think she turned out great. I think she will fit in perfect with the rest of the ladys
    Coming straight out of Preternia, tribal chieftess and the original WARRIOR GODDESS, SHARELLA!!!

    Sharella needs her day in Classics. She is the only remaining vintage POG character that needs a figure.

    My top 5 wants for MOTUC: Sharella, Hunga the Harpy, Sagitar, Snake Goddess & Red Beast

    So she won't be looking down . Don't worry.
    Thanks man, that was something I was wondering about. I assume that, every SDCC, people are hurrying around to set everything up, and then one person is standing around with nothing to do and someone says: "YOU! What are you doing?! Nothing? Set some figures up dangit, we're on a tight schedule!" And they're like: "UUUAAAHHH OKAYOKAY!" and they start plopping 'em down with sticky tack like a conspiracy theorist pasting clues to a wall.

    That face is just hideous. Nothing like the cartoon. Really disappointing. Antennae are way too thick too. And just like Flutterina she has no neck. Oh, and to be really nit-picky, her skin tone is too dark too.

    Ah well, hopefully one of our talented sculptors around here will be able to create a nice fix for us (hint, hint!)

    Let's be honest her face is FAR from hideous. Her make-up isn't as extreme as her filmation look. And her eyes are a bit different. Nothing drastic.

    I actually feel like the figure's face is better than her face in the toon.

    I am a big fan of this figure! Love the yellow shield and clever bug gun. The face sculpt is one of my favorite in the line! The design translated better than I had hoped, and looks very cartoony and toy-like. A big thumbs up to everyone involved in making this figure!

    Definitely buying two of these so that one can be painted like the style guide:

    Not only the eyes are wrong.

    She's missing the characteristic pouty lips and she has no cheekbones either. It could be just any random female head with mega-brows painted on.

    You really can't have her antennas thinner than that. It will break off as soon as you take it off the package. I think she came out just fine. My only tidbit is that her eyeshadow should be darker.

    Yeah, she actually looks more like Scorpia, higher cheekbones, dramatic makeup, pout...The final toy looks better than the Mattel pics. Her face looks fat in the Mattel official pics...like a fat cookie face.

    I agree. I plan on darkening her make-up as soon as I get her. That will help tame those brows down some.

    Hmm, interesting observation on the Scorpia resemblance.

    In a worst case scenario I just might have to cannibalize a Scorpia to fix my Sweet Bee.

    Uhm, there can be no cannibalization of Scorpia--it's in the rules.

    That won't be necessary, I think you could just achieve it with a little face paint enhancement...a little more green eye shadow painted on the eyes should do the trick.

    But she does look like Scorpia to me in the Filmation Cartoon.

    Sweet Bee turned out marvelous! She's one of my favorite POP figures yet! In my top 5 for sure.

    Sweet Bee was never one of my favourite characters, but I love that figure. Several people have suggested she has a hippie vibe. I love it. What better character to be a flower child than a bee girl?

    The stock photo on Matty looks horrible compared to the actual figure in the case at SDCC.

    I'm quite happy with her. Her actual face is great.

    Same here. I pray that she has the Style Guide/Filmation designs. I find that I am a fan of most non-fighter/non muscle man characters in MOTU.

    She will, all the POP ladies have been heavily leaning in that direction.

    As is often the case! The Matty pics left me a bit underwhelmed, but I'm liking her better in different lighting. I'm sure I'll paint her face a bit to be more toon accurate, but I'm pretty pleased with how she turned out! Matty really needs better photographers.
    Some remaining WANTS:
    Kittrina (Classics-detailed), Lady Slither, Garth, Master Sebrian, Skeleteen, Kay-La, (comic)Garn, Meliac, Sagitar, Melog, Spirit of Evil, Artilla, Drissi, Caz, Grot, Melaktha, Scrollos, Hunga, Rajar, Bubblor, Songster, Red Beast, Zed, NA Sorceress, Staghorn, Col. Blast, Fright Zone, Slime Pit, and many more.

    I have no bees in my bonnet over her. I think she's great. October is going to be awesome.
    IT'S BEEN A LONG CRAZY RIDE SINCE 2008!

    I'm really excited about Sweet Bee coming in October! The figure is pretty much exactly what I expected and I have no complaints. The actual in-case pictures are definitely better than those leaked pics from earlier. It's kind of obvious now why Mattel is trying to stop the leaks.

    How would you feel if you didn't have control over the presentation of something you'd worked hard on and somebody else posted an imperfect version of it in an unflattering way?

    I'm happy with her. She looks great. The only thing I was worried about were the antenna, which looked like they both faced in - but I've seen a couple of pics now in different spots so I'm pretty sure you can rotate them. It looked kind of weird both pointed in - but since it looks like we can move them around, that was the only imperfection I worried about.

    I've never gotten all the face hate, to be honest, on PoP characters. There hasn't been one that I haven't liked, even Frosta who seems to so universally reviled. With most of these figures I rarely have any preconceived notion of what I expect them to look like - it's only dumb errors (no Filmation Head on Filmation Hordak, etc.) that get my fur loincloth in a knot.
