The Great Rebellion is really filling out the ranks as Club Etheria draws to a sad close. Spinnerella was one of the many Princess of Power characters to appear in only a single episode of the cartoon, yet warrant the full vintage and modern action figure treatment. To be honest, Spinnerella is my second least-desired POP character (after Perfuma). Her look, her name, and her power just scream "doll gimmick" to me, however I have to concede and admit I like this MOTUC figure a lot. While she is definitely the girliest and least formidable-looking POP girl so far, she has a unique regal presence among my collection. I just re-watched her episode and she is toted as a very powerful character who can spin and create a magical destructive cyclone. Her rumored/implied connection to Netossa just makes her all the more interesting. Here's the rundown: They come to this part of Etheria while on a vacation together. They share a room and decide to go out dancing. They're fiercely protective of each other. And they hug a lot. I'm not sold, but I'm intrigued. Draw your own conclusions. Let's check out Spinnerella below!
The streamers on Spinnerella's arms are made from a rigid inflexible (mostly) plastic. The streamers on her skirt however are very flexible. Like a thick cape.
The poseability is very limited due to the fact that her gauntlets do not rotate. In order to have her arm streamers obey gravity, you have really limit the kind of poses you choose.
All the images above this point are of Spinnerella in her vintage toy look (ie.. she has a crown and bigger hair). Below will be the Filmation animated look without that crown. This change is achieved with a removable ponytail that pins the crown piece to the head.
Aside from her hair accessories, Spinnerella also comes with a spear and a shield.
Here are a bunch of screengrabs I just made while watching the episode.
There are a few paint issues on this figure. Luckily none of them on mine are visible in a basic pose.
This skuffed up blue paint is one the back of one of her arm streamers.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
