I say hybrid style all the way, with the toy design taking center seat - which is Emiliano's design. The NEXT thing would be to saturate her colors - more of a rosey-red and magenta mix to replace the pink, and darken up that minty green a little. We could come back to "toy colors" in a future POP Classics variant line, but for now, take her color scheme to a more "mainstream" point.
I always saw Perfuma as a plant elemental - similar to Moss Man. She portrays herself as a goofy hippy-nymph, but that is a mask for her potentially devastating control of flora. She has to maintain control of her emotions and her powers, as they could prove to be quite...overwhelming. She reminds me a lot of Poison Ivy from Batman.
I actually want her to look more Filmation. Sure, give me some toy details, like the bracelets, but for me, her Filmation design was so unique from the others, with having slippers instead of boots. At most, Emilano's hybrid design would be ok too. And yes, I definitely want her to smell, though neither of the two vintage Perfuma figures that I own have a scent. :srconf:
I definitely want Perfuma, and I'd like her to look like the Filmation version.
I don't know where people are getting the scent from, I had her as a kid and she never smelled ... although I'd be more than happy for them to give her a floral scent this time around. Stinkor is much less severe than Moss Man was so they can do it as a nice touch and not have it be overpowering. As far as her look goes, Filmation all the way.
EDIT: It seems, as best to anyone's knowledge, her flower accessory was scented.
I was just thinking about how I've never understood why the vintage Glimmer came with a crazy huge flower staff. Isn't that better suited to Perfuma?
I know we might not GET Perfuma, but I'm okay with the flower staff being saved for her, allowing Glimmer some better accessories, like maybe some Light Blasts, or Kowl, or Loo-Kee, etc.
I want Glimmer to come with her staff. I don't care if it's flower-themed, it's her staff. Teela isn't a Snake Woman and came with her snake staff and armor--and as she should. It's the character's accessories. Perfuma's got a hat.:hmwink:
Emiliano's design without boots and backpack would be great. A "bare" female calve would need to be designed for her to sport the green slip-ons. The giant flower pack would be a waste of resources.
As for Glimmer's staff- yes: give a re-colored version to Perfuma.
I like Emiliano's hybrid version for Perfuma in MOTUC. Though, I could go either way with her having boots or the ballet flats. The flats would at least give her some distinct quality since so many females have boots. I'd rather her not be completely Filmation, though. She needs a bit more embellishment from that version.
In Regards to the Flower Backpack, I think it should be used as a way of camoflague, the petals could be long enough to reach the ground, making her look like a large flower. I totally agree with the flower staff should have come with Perfuma, but i doubt that will change. i would like to see Perfuma also come with something like a vine whip as her weapon
I'm anticipating her to be in my collection than any of the others.
Perfuma is the only one I prefer in her Toy version! Her short flower skirt and her awesome hair style would make her a beautiful MotuC figure.
The Filmation one is ok to but I really love her Toy look!
After watching "Flowers for Hordak", I am warming to the idea of Perfuma. Of course I want all of the POP gals, but she has now moved up the list.
