    Repaint the body to a lighter purple like the cartoon and use an off-white/pinkish tone for the parts that are light purple now. Also, the detail on the side of her hips/thighs will be painted purple to give the outfit effect from the show while making it slightly less jarring.

    She\'s definitely looking better in this new pictures.  I bet she\'ll be even more presentable in person.  Regardless, I\'m actually kinda digging the loudness,

    Paying import prices is, not for me. I'll muddle through until she gets a US release for $19.99

    My good sir, that is ridiculous you clearly have NOT!




    The official configuration is Greenlight should be the left leg and Novastar the left arm, rookie mistake! :p

    At least Lancer won't be hard to spot in my collection.

    Impactor is orange and purple and people love the crap out of him. So I find it ironic that people would bash Lancers colors as being ugly.

    knee-jerk reaction likely.

    I dig the colors, it gives off a very solid "G2" vibe to me.

    I like it. The colors could be better on the face, but the facesculpt looks great.

    Finally after almost 2 pages of straight nothing but jabs at the figure its nice to see someone with a similar opinion & the 1st to say anything exceptional. Awesome imo the best looking deluxe female combiner part. It has real POP and i absolutely love the face sculpt & paint. Only problem is i need a Elita 1 still. Since POTP Starscream Combiner is solid i take it ORTHIA will be as well.

    Impactor is yellow not orange (that terrible FoC redeco not withstanding), you know, the color that actually complements purple. Also he has white throughout to break up the bolder colors like lancer's g1 model also had and this toy lacks.

    Lancer looks alright to me.

    Except for the lips. They just look wrong to me.

    Yeah. "Orthia" was an aspect of Artemis. Short, overly simple version is that Greek gods/goddesses were often amalgams of other, usually older, local gods and goddesses that had other primary traits, which is why Artemis was the goddess of the hunt, wilderness, childbirth AND virginity. Those additional aspects usually carried the names of the deities they "absorbed" - hence Artemis Orthia.

    I dunno why they didn't pick something a little more thematically apropos than Elita 1infinite for her alternative configuration(s) (something to do with Hecate would have been interesting), but that's how it goes.

    Also, Elita makes such a bug ugly torso IMO. Hopefully someone will come up with a kit that doesn't make her look like a giant pissed off corn chip.

    I dunno if I consider impactor yellow. His other toys are definitely more of a tangerine color as opposed to bumblebee yellow. I also own the TFCC impactor from the Rook mold and MMCs Spartan figures. Im happy with the Lancer deco. Its pretty spot on to the source material.
