    I believe they are. Someone mentioned it looks like the cape on Skeletor and the fur trim on He-Man's boots might be soft goods- which we haven't seen in the boot dept. outside of the Mondo 1/6 scale figures (it would be kind of funny if Mattel were inspired by the Mondo figures to add this detail). If any part of Evil-Lyn's outfit is actual fabric... on a tactile level, this would elevate these figures a bit. But I seem to remember a 19.99 price point being bandied about for these and while I'm no expert, it seems like if these figures had actual cloth capes, fur boots, or what-not that they might be more expensive (I know Origins She-Ra has soft goods, but that's also a 5.5" figure with far less articulation than Masterverse is doing).
    ANYWAYS... as you can tell, I'm trying to come around to Revelations Evil-Lyn, but I'm not convincing myself yet because- yeah- I just think as an action figure she's dull.
    Clearing out Classics, Super7 and vintage MOTU & PoP figures... check out my threads in the Marketplace for Fisto, Sorceress, BA variants, SDCC exclusives and more!

    Yes, they do look like soft goods. Now that these poor pictures are out there, I think Mattel need to go ahead and release full HD shots, because I have no doubt these pics are not doing these figures any favours either way.

    When I first saw the small thumbnail image of the 4 characters (He-man, Skeletror, Battlecat, Evil-Lyn), the first thing that came to mind is that it was Frosta.

    But when I clicked on the thumbnail and viewed the larger image, I could tell that it wasn't Frosta.

    But it still looks nothing like Evil-Lyn.

    Some minor changes are cool, but this is another one that they flipped upside down and it looks nothing like the original.

    Characters, as they progress through the decades, should at least have a reasonable resemblance to who they originally are.

    Why do the designers sometimes have to completely overhaul a character instead of tweaking them

    So now that Evil Lyn is from the Southern Water Tribe, will she be the anti-water-bender?

    Taking down all these shots suggests they aren't happy with the reception. I don't think they'll release anything better, though. Probably just bank on time healing that wound.

    My hopes are still high though. But this isn't Evil-Lyn, it's a brand new character. The only thing they have in common is the name "Evil-Lyn".

    Other examples like this that come to mind are Bow and Admiral Scurvy in the new She Ra series. There is zero resemblance between their new designs and what they really look like. They want to tweak with the designs, sure - no problem. But why all these complete makeovers that bear no resemblance at all

    I would say it’s more likely they weren't supposed to reveal any of the pictures now, especially not in poor definition. The design for the CG show was taken down too. This happens all the time with toy companies, movie studios and the like when they reveal things they're not supposed to.

    They deleted the images of MOTU because Mattel didn't expect it created such a buzz ,it was just an analyst meeting no for the public.
    MOTU is allegedly the "less" important brand ever for Mattel but the only that creates news in this kind of events, there was news about Barbie, Hot Wheels and other big brands but sites take the motu stuff.

    Nice find, Jukka. Where did you find that?
    "I wouldn't be surprised if this movie has Adam as a skinny nerd from Earth battling another skinny nerd-hacker from Earth that used an alias of Keldor. They then enter Tron-style to a cyber world called Eternia, where they control muscle-bound avatars to battle (called He-Man and Skeletor). And these same avatars come to life and continue to battle in present-day Earth." - VZX

    I mean, it'd be Christmas season, so it'd be a smart move to put them out then.

    Personally I love all these new MOTU designs and can't wait for the new series to air! I love Evil-Lyn!

    It's weird that Mattel did not release better pics of these yet. Whenever a leak of a Transformer comes out, Hasbro usually releases a better pic within a few days or less. The same with movie set pics or recordings. Cmon, Mattel! First impressions matter, and these did not go over well...

    Mattel needs new leadership.

    The issue is not the quality of the photo, it is the quality of the toy. Better photos of an ugly toy is not going to improve impressions. That is probably why they have been playing things so close to the vest.

    I don't think that Mattel is very proud of these efforts...

    Obviously, I haven't seen them in any greater detail than anyone else, but they really look like duds.

    I like where they're going with these but from what I've seen so far they look like prototypes or customs. There is just a very unfinished quality about them. I really think Mattel needs to show some actual product at this point with professional pictures. Hopefully these are early pieces someone just grabbed pictures of from an in-house presentation or something for the purpose of this presentation.
    I serve up lots of hot, fresh action figure reviews on Action Figure Barbecue!
