    Yes, directly from Amazon. Her and Evil Lyn say ships within -2 days, so no doubt it's a new batch.

    Thanks! I grabbed a couple more Teelas just now. As soon as Amazon proper gets in more Evil-Lyns, I might grab a couple more of those for the knees. Iím about to have an small army of Evil-Lyns! For some reason, Iím so much more into her now than I was when I was a kid. Lol

    Has anyone found an updated She-Ra yet?

    I wonder if the running female knee change will also apply to Castle Greyskull releases and the Sorceress therein. If I can hold off and get my Greyskull later and have it include a "good knee" Sorceress, I won't need to bother with the single carded one
    As of now, the only lady I own is Evil-lyn, but if I'd know back then they'd fix the knees, I wouldn't have even bought her until now, save myself the need to double purchase

    I assume they will eventually get the new knees into the Sorceress as well. But I am hoping to be able just buy 2 of the upcoming Sorceress figures and using the interchangeability feature to put new legs on the Grayskull Sorceress. The Temple of Darkness is my preferred deco for the Sorceress.

    Hopefully the skin tones will match so it doesnít mess up the aesthetics when swapping parts on the Temple of Darkness Sorceress.

    "Running female knee" sounds like a combat move that Teela would use to stop Beast-Man in his tracks.

    I don't think Mattel would be likely to change the knees in the Sorceress that comes with Castle Grayskull unless they completely sell out of their Castle Grayskull stock and decide to rerelease the castle later in the Origins line. It would probably be easier to just swap the legs with the single-carded Sorceress figure once that gets released, as other forum members have suggested. I currently have my Sorceress standing on the right-side castle turret behind Zodac, so the knees are usually not visible anyway.

    Yeah they've already rereleased Grayskull with the Sorceress with the new knees.

    Sky Sleds are on deep 8.99 clearance at Target now, so I was able to go through several and find both sword variants in the store. Here is a comparison pic in case anyone needs it. PicsArt_08-16-12.07.37.jpg

    I ordered Teela and Wave 1 Evil Lyn just after you posted this. Both arrived today and both have the updated knees. Thanks for the tip!

    None of mine have the new knees. Not even 200X Evil-Lyn.

    Just got some Man-E-Faces from Amazon and noticed there seems to be a new sticker on the back. Did they update the numbers?

    Mine has the same numbers, but no sticker. GNN95 is the Man-E-Faces number. GNN84 is the number for the assortment.

    For the people getting the Tele & Evil-Lyn with the new knees, which Amazon seller did you buy from? I ordered Teela (fixed my previous typo) and received the old knees version.

    I got the old Evil Lyn after getting the new Teela, so clearly some old stock is still going out.

    I sent the old one back today for a replacement. Hoping for a miracle lol.

    My Teela was shipped and sold by Amazon. Waiting on yellow Evil-Lyn to show up right now(also from Amazon) and hoping it’s the new knees as well. I’ll update.


    Update: Evil-Lyn has the new knees

    I ordered from Amazon too, at least the order details say, "Sold by: Amazon.com Services LLC."
    We'll see which version of Evil-Lyn arrives because that package is still in the mail.
    I just re-ordered both figures as a fail-safe. I will return each old knee versions they send me. It is probably true that some old stock is still mixed in with their new stock bins/MOTU item shelves.

    It probably depends on stock at each individual distribution center.

    I'm in Caliternia too (central), so I will report out on my Evil-Lyn when she arrives.
