Shield & Staff look great. Dig the translucent hair too!

Frosta is looking good, although it's hard to judge just how much they have improved on the proto-type without a face-on picture.

The staff looks good, but it's just too big! It looks taller than Frosta. I wish they'd gone with something a little smaller. Maybe the top part will be interchangeable with Evil-Lynn's staff pieces, so a smaller version could be made? The shield also looks good, although I would have liked them to use translucent plastic like the "spokes" on the staff.

I'm not sure about translucent hair. A translucent cape (like Jewelstar) would have been fantastic, but I just don't see why Frosta would have translucent hair? The character has always had regular hair, in the cartoon, style-guide and in toy/doll form. It doesn't really matter as it won't be visible from the "front", but I hope it doesn't shatter, crack or explode like so many other translucent plastic parts in the MOTUC line.

Eh, works for me. Smile

Not the biggest She-Ra fan, but she looks like she'll fit right in with the others. Smile

I did wonder what the hell I was looking at that had tiny little legs where its head should be. >_<

Backstory is ToyGuru has been sending Pixel Dan sneak peeks of Mosquitor (as it is PD's fave character). I still don't think they've announced Mosquitor's scheduled release, guess we'll find out at SDCC.

I like the translucent hair. Ice effects always equal win.

Not a fan of the fully translucent hair (it looked partially painted in PD's preview pics), but I still can't wait for Frosta.

The Great Rebellion will be greatly improved with the addition of the two Marge Simpson wannabes in the near future.

I have MANY issues with the final production Frosta, but I'm still glad that she's coming and that I'll soon be able to add her to my collection.

Well, maybe not soon, but hopefully she'll arrive before Christmas.

OK - so Frosta's arms are wrong (reversed?) and we are getting a freebie - any guess what it might be? I'm betting it'll be a Keldor's fused sword like the PowerCon exclusive....

I'm hoping it will be a "blue" BP She-Ra sword which can be used with either Frosta OR Netossa.

But, I suspect it will just be another sticker sheet or something similar.

It's nice that we are getting a freebie. The reversed arms don't bother me too much...I think.

Apparently the Fwoosh review had correct arms, but this one at AFI has the incorrect arms:

I'll just have to wait and see what it looks like in person.

My main concern is that the sculpted details on the gauntlets are visible from the front, otherwise they're a little plain looking.

So, as long as you can see the "icicle" like design, then I don't mind too much whether they're reversed or not.
