Minifigure Review: Evil-Lyn from Masters of the Universe Eternia Minis by Mattel

   I've reviewed a few of the Masters of the Universe Eternia Minis that were just rehashes of previously released figures so how about we look at a new character today? Let's check out Evil-Lyn! This is her first time in one of the MOTU Minis lines which makes her a pretty exciting release. Yeah, she reuses the same body as Teela, who we already saw in the Slime Pit Multipack a few months ago, but that's to be expected, right? Let's take a closer look at Evil-Lyn after the break...

The Facts:

Height: 2 inches

Articulation: Swivel waist, swivel shoulders, and a balljointed head.


Non-Scalper Price: $5 dollars

The Positives:

* Evil-Lyn uses the same body as Teela but with how different her colors are (especially the yellow skin) you would never know. The paint detail is pretty clean, especially for a figure this small, and the bright yellow of her skin looks really good.


* Evil-Lyn moves in the same places as her pail counterparts and while she's not as dynamically posed as they are it's always impressive to get some movement out of a minifigure. She's a sturdy little thing, too.


* The all black eyes are kind of weird but it's not like Evil-Lyn is a heroic character. The style of the line gives the figures mostly simple, black eyes so she falls right in line with the rest of the crew. She has a pretty mad expression on her face including some very angry eyebrows!


* Evil-Lyn comes with her wand. It's a simple piece but it's what the vintage toy had and she looks good with it. It matches the light blue details on her outfit and really completes her look.

   Evil-Lyn turned out to be quite a nice minifigure! She has clean paintwork, a nice design, and she's just really fun. Her colors almost always stand out and the Eternia Minis version continues that tradition. I still wish these little figures came with the cool playset inspired plastic cases that the series 1 and 2 figures had but for the price (around $5 bucks) Evil-Lyn's still a decent minifigure. I'm giving her a Great rating! She's one of the standouts of series 3 so far. Of course, there are still a few figures I haven't looked at yet, including a Teela variant, so I'll keep exploring the series in the weeks ahead.

  If you're a fan of Evil-Lyn I've also reviewed the Masters of the Universe Classics Evil-Lyn, the M.U.S.C.L.E. Evil-Lyn from the Masters of the Universe green boxed set, Tweeterhead's Evil-Lyn bust, the ReAction Evil-Lyn, Super7's neo-vintage Evil-Lyn, the Monogram International Evil-Lyn bag clip, the standard Evil-Lyn POP! + Pez dispenser and the Evil-Lyn (Metallic) POP! + Pez Dispenser, the Rock Candy Evil-Lyn, the MOTU Origins Evil-Lyn, the Mega Construx Evil-Lyn and Evil-Lyn (series 2)and Mega Construx Heroes Evil-Lyn.
