From her bio:

"During the Second Ultimate Battleground she was confronted by the evil Mer-Man of Eternia & was forced to behead him with his own trident..."

Mermista is pretty impressive, especially for a regularly price figure!

I think the mermaid tail is the highlight. The sculpt, articulation and paint are all pretty much perfect. The hair is perhaps a little weak (it seems too flat and too high on her forehead), but it's hard to quibble too much.

I also would have preferred a trident instead of the sea-shell as an accessory, but I guess she can just hold my un-used Mer-Man head and I'll pretend that she's already decapitated Mer-Man and disposed of the trident!

Bahaha! She so has to be holding Mer-Mans head!  Laughing

I presume that SDCC pic has the stand around the wrong way? Razz NGL, I don't see the point of including legs but I guess some people will want to mix it up.

I hope so, but during PixelDan's video interview, Toyguru tried to get Mermista to "stand" using the stand the right way (i.e. so her lower fin facing forward instead of backward) and he couldn't get Mermista to stand. He ended up standing her the way pictured and declaring it a triumph of design!

I guess we'll have to wait and see how well the stand works when Mermista arrives.

I think it's only fair that they included the legs, but I would have much preferred the Filmation-style legs which would have given Mermista a cool Mera-style look when in human form. The bare legs, which are toy-accurate, just look odd to me. I'm guessing that Mattel were too cheap to make the Filmation accurate "finned calves".

Scott was moving her tail artic around a bit in the video so I gathered he had her lower sections all messed up when he tried to put her on the stand. I can't imagine it being at the front of her.
