MOTU Origins - EVIL-LYN (v2)!

Masters of the Universe Origins - Evil-Lyn (200x Version) - Mattel 2021

Evil-Lyn is one of those rare characters that I've genuinely loved every iteration of. I love her vintage toy in bright garish yellow. I love her blue and purple caped Filmation design. I actually didn't hate the live-action movie costume. The black and purple 200x look is glorious. And I'm pretty sure I'm going to love the upcoming Revelations style. This 200x repaint of the Masters of the Universe Origins Evil-Lyn is terrific example of how translatable her different color palettes are across different era designs. I hope this means a Filmation variant will be coming too. Speaking of Filmation, this figure forced me to finally distinguish between her main two animated looks. I honestly thought this was a Filmation repaint until I saw the logo on the package. To sum it up, 200x Evil-Lyn has overall darker colors but paler skin. Filmation has a distinct blue and brighter purple. I truly expect the third deco to come out before the end of the year, along with pink Teela and Sorceress. Let's check out 200x Evil-Lyn below!

Evil-Lyn comes with a mini-comic and small insert showing her modular construction.
This saves me the effort of disassembling her for a photo (I did it for the yellow version).

I couldn't help throwing in a couple Filmation screengrabs. 
When you aren't comparing them side-by-side, it's easy to think 200x and Filmation are the same.

When trying to compare the three main Evil-Lyn looks, I think the best example is from the MegaConstrux line. From Left to Right: Vintage Toy, 200x, and Filmation.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the 200x and Vintage Toy versions together.
