Minifigure Review: Evil-Lyn from Masters of the Universe: Mega Construx by Mattel
Height: 2 inches
Articulation: Hinged knees, balljointed hips, swivel waist, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/ hinge elbows, swivel wrists, and a balljointed head.
Accessories: Five piece staff, shoulder cuff, and three piece display stand.
Non-Scalper Price: $5-$6 dollars
* As you can probably guess if you're a MOTU fan, Evil-Lyn shares her body with the Mega Construx Teela figure. That was true in the vintage line and in Masters of the Universe Classics and it's the same case here, too. The paintwork is quite sharp for this being a 2 inch figure. Most of the little deficiencies you might see on your screen here are probably invisible to the naked eye.
* If you haven't played with one of these yet, you need to. They are very, very impressive. The articulation is incredible! Seriously, these are some of the most well articulated toys you will find. They're durable, poseable, and really, really fun. Heck, you can even customize them easily, too. These are pure hand candy!
* Evil-Lyn has nice headsculpt with solid paintwork. I love the green eye shadow!
* Like on Teela, the bicep cuffs are removable as well. These are used on a number of the figures and serve as wrist cuffs on the male figures.
* Evil-Lyn includes a silver staff/ wand that's made out of five different pieces. The tip is a unique piece that looks like the orb atop the vintage Evil-Lyn's staff.
* To help display these, each figure includes a stand. The stands are made out of three pieces and feature a Grayskull green base and a nameplate with the character's name printed in silver.
* I've liked most of the accessories in this line but Evil Lyn's leaves me feeling a bit flat. The orb on the top is far too small while the silver color seems like a strange choice. The other figures match the colors of their vintage accessories but Evil-Lyn's is silver, not blue. Blue would have been far more fun.
If you're a fan of Evil-Lyn I've also reviewed the M.U.S.C.L.E. Evil-Lyn from the Masters of the Universe green boxed set.
