Mattel Creations produced the Darkish Lyn motion determine. This product does deserve a toy evaluate. The He-Man and Masters of The Universe franchise would not exist with out the motion figures. The primary collection was based mostly on the toyline. The toys and TV present propelled He-Man, Teela, Skeletor, and Evil-Lyn into popular culture fame. The 2002 collection was launched to convey MOTU to a brand new era. Mattel with the Netflix collection targeted extra on a mix of lore from the minicomics, the 1983 collection, and the toyline. The twist in Masters of the Universe Revelation was that Evil-Lyn usurped the ability. These acquainted with the 1983 collection do recall that at onetime Evil-Lyn did wish to take the ability for herself. Evil-Lyn lastly did it within the 2021 collection. Whereas it is a good determine, there are some points with it. The minor issues are usually not sufficient to designate it as a low high quality product.
The one concern is that the figures doesn’t include a stand. Darkish Lyn can’t stand on her personal. A collector must buy one in the event that they wish to put it on show. The reasoning could possibly be that’s the determine was meant to remain within the field. Some wish to have the determine be capable of stand by itself. Being a deluxe motion determine it might at the least meet this commonplace. Then one as to contemplate the burden and proportions. The shoulder guards and higher physique add to weighing down the determine. The answer can be so as to add extra weight to the legs, but it surely might throw it out of proportion. The ads and official picture promotions don’t point out that she can’t stand on her personal. Mattel ought to have made that recognized. A collector will discover that out when it’s bought.
The construction of the determine and equipment are commendable. Darkish Lyn comes with quite a lot of hand swaps. One accommodates power blasts. The opposite has fists and open arms. The one other set of arms can be utilized if Darkish Lyn is holding an adjunct. A collector can take the Sword of Energy from the He-Man motion determine and place it in God Lyn’s hand. That is extra sensible than having her come together with her personal Energy Sword Accent. When getting the determine a collector would possibly discover the joints are a bit stiff. Transferring them for a couple of minutes can clear up the issue. Then Darkish Lyn can do a lot of poses.
The determine comes with a unique swap of arms and magic blast equipment. The cape is precise fabric, reasonably than plastic.
The largest frustration is retaining her collar on. Pushing it in as laborious as attainable can repair it. Utilizing glue could possibly be an answer, however must be executed cautiously. The determine can get broken if an excessive amount of modification is completed to it. Pulling the arms out will be one other irritation. Transferring them too laborious might trigger the ends to interrupt within the arm. When swapping arms be very cautious. This product is basically for collectors solely. It might simply be damaged by a toddler. The sculpt is nice high quality. Darkish Lyn exhibits muscle definition, however the dimension seems off. These much less favorable attributes are solely minor. Total it doesn’t subtract from the motion determine’s aesthetic.
A collector’s cation determine ought to look as near the character as attainable. Clearly 2D animated characters are going to seem completely different as an motion determine. Darkish Lyn’s face and make-up are spot on. The hair of the determine exhibits nice texture. The strains and creases make Darkish Lyn’s hair look fluffy. The cape does have the celebrities and will be moved round. Utilizing precise fabric is healthier than plastic, as a result of it makes the cape extra genuine. The muscle dimension of her physique appears to be like smaller on the determine.
The common Evil-Lyn and Sorceress Lyn determine are nearer to the animated designs. Darkish Lyn was barely shrunken. The Savage He-Man determine was smaller than the animated model.
That is famous with the Savage He-Man determine as nicely. Savage He-Man was a hulk like kind, but it surely simply seemed like they took the common He-Man determine and swapped the heads. The muscle groups have been smaller. The Darkish Lyn motion determine remains to be muscular, however smaller than the animated model. That is the most important downside of the motion determine. Darkish Lyn is essentially the most highly effective being in existence and she or he ought to look that method. Fortunately, Mattel didn’t give her a Barbie type motion determine mildew. It may be understood why it doesn’t completely match. At instances within the collection sure frames present Darkish Lyn extra muscular than earlier ones. The problem with animating muscular characters is stopping them from trying lumpy. It nonetheless generally is a concern for motion determine design. Including barely extra dimension wouldn’t have executed this to the Darkish Lyn motion determine. Regardless of this, it appears to be like similar to the sorceress champion herself.
Collectors like to have their motion figures within the field. The field artwork for motion figures are sometimes ignored. The work for Darkish Lyn are fantastic. Nevertheless, there’s an inconsistency. Darkish Lyn is extra muscular on the internal part of the field. The abs look very outlined. The picture of her on the again is thinner. Her hair appears to be like extra like an Afro. The inconsistency doesn’t subtract from the attractive artwork. The magic emanating from her appears to be like vey mystical. It actually captures the character of the present and the character.
The field artwork doesn’t appear according to the character design. Darkish Lyn seems extra muscular on the internal a part of the field in comparison with the again.
In addition to the completely different trying our bodies, that’s not the oddest half. Darkish Lyn’s nails look extra like talons. Look carefully sufficient they nearly appear like claws. Examine that to the opposite picture her nails look common. Field artwork must be constant for a deluxe motion determine. Minor inventive liberties are wonderful. Simply so long as they aren’t too divergent. That doesn’t occur right here, however it may be a nuisance. The Darkish Lyn determine is a will need to have for a He-Man fan. Even when you don’t like Masters of The Universe Revelation, the toyline is nice high quality.
