    I totally disagree with you! Why should POP fans have to wait untill all the MOTU figures are out!!! We have as much right to look foward to getting some of our faviorate characters (within a relative space of time) as MOTU fans. For Mermista I agree with Tallstar. Detachable legs and SCULPTED tail. I hope they make the big fin at the bottom of her tail as close to the cartoon fin as possible without geting in trouble of course. I always thought the toy fin was way to plain and boring.

    I understand that you would like to have your She-Ra stuff.
    But i always thought that She-Ra has nothing to do with He-Man.
    I fear that sales of one line influence the survival of the other(blame Mattel for that).
    Hopefully there are enough She-Ra Fans for backing up MotU

    That is what im hoping for...and i am totally anticipating the the motu characters, but the thought of POP is what making me support eveything else. I hope they get around to them soon.

    She's his sister! And she fights the Evil Horde, who are part of the Masters of the Universe toyline; how can you say she has nothing to do with He-Man

    Because POP and NA fans are in the minority compared to vintage MOTU fans, that's why I'd imagine they'd get a whole year of straight vintage MOTU characters, to have the line pick up steam for a year. And add to that all the folks who say the only POP they'd only get is She-Ra/Adora and those who would pass up NA on general principal.

    I feel for the NA and She-Ra fans.

    I hoped that it would have been a random mix of characters every year until we had gotten to everyone. 200X versions of the MOTUC seem even more possible now just because they'll try to get all of those major MOTU characters first in the first year. Later when the characters get more obscure, they'll probably bring the major characters back out as 200X characters to keep the line fresh.

    To clarify, I didn't expect any POP characters in the first year, although if Mattel did give us one it would be great! I was arguing with the idea presented in the post I quoted in my original post: suggesting that POP figures should wait untill all of the MOTU figures had been done. I totally understand the logic for the MOTU only policy for the first year of MOTUC, but after that it should be totally mixedup (IMO). The only POP figures I am counting on seeing in MOTUC are She-Ra, Adora & Catra! But Bow, Kowl, Glimmer, Angella & Castaspella would also be amazing!!!!! She-Ra, Catra & Adora (if done right) have the potential to be big sellers for MOTUC. Maybe we will luck out and Mattel will produce a He-Man and She-Ra two pack for SDCC in 2009.

    I hope Mermista would also have her squrting necklace and sea shell attachment in any new MOTUC figure.

    Not to be offensive but your making a mute point! How does this idea of "without MOTU there would be no POP" lead you on to the justification of the idea that POP fans should have to wait untill every MOTU figure has been produced before Mattel show She-Ra and her girls some love. Granted outside of She-Ra, Catra, Adora and possibly Frosta the other characters might not sell as well, but these 4 charaters could easily be very big sellers for MOTUC (if they are done right)! This is a collector line and there are many fans in this community who have stated they will buy She-Ra & POP characters. The SDCC exclusive She-Ra sold over 10,000 figures in the summer of 2004! (That's not something to be sniffed at). This alone shows She-Ra's potential.

    The POP and NA fans are already in pain at what looks like having to wait untill 2010 for a bone or two. Sorry to be harsh as I assume you meant this as a joke! But attitudes like this don't really help the POP or NA cause!

    On a lighter note, I agree that Mermista looks a bit like Barbie, but dude it's Mattel! They got Barbie on the brain!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish it was a barbie design because then Mattel could use it in MOTUC!

    NotoriousOne, I would assume them taking the same approach they took with King Hssss. The top of Mermista's body will probably be detachable at her waist and she would come with both articulated legs as well as a mermaid tail. How they will do/articulate the tail is something I'm very interested and excited to see. Personally, I can't wait to get her.

    Ok, Jim..I could not pass up this comment because it's absolutely rude. I am a fan of both MOTU and POP. It's obvious you could care less about POP, so please, why come into a discuission about Mermista. NotoriousOne asked about how will they approach Mermista and you go and bash the POP line. Not cool, dude. Really not cool and not appreciated at all. All fans want this line to succeed for many different reasons.

    Mermista is one of my most wanted POP characters. I personally would like to see her made with a "seamless" tail into the top without the belt. I think without the belt she'll looks more like the tail is a real part of her body and not a costume. For her legs I'd like to see them done in the same color as her tail with no boots but a fin, as if her tail just separates into legs. Whatever way they make her I'll be happy, just make her.

    Personally, I'd take Mermista over any PoP (even Glimmer, etc.), she's the one PoP fig I always wanted in vintage and never got.

    I'd like to see her done with dual legs like the new version of Slave Leia - two sets of legs, one to be lounging as a Mermaid and one standing up.

    I'm hoping she becomes an SDCC item so they can really deluxe her out. Then again, they did two heads and two arms for Trap Jaw - I can't think of too many accessories she needs besides two sets of legs. Plus then most of us would buy two figs.

    So yea...you just got crazy cool points in my book!!!!

    I know how you feel...I never had vintage Mermista and just got one about 3 months ago. Even with that dumb cloth skirt & bowed legs!

    How flippin cool would an SDCC Mermista be!!!!! I just...words...can't put it into!

    Totally. Personally, I think Glimmer & Frosta are both pretty boring designs. Octavia & Scorpia & Flutterina are more visually interesting than those two.

    I've always had a "thing" for creature/human characters. Even Angela with her wings! Def. Scorpia & Octavia...Peekablue is a good example too!

    In He-Man it's beast-man, mer-man, webstor, buzz-off, stratos, etc. etc. etc.

    If I have had one criticism of the 4H, it's that their female sculpts are somewhat deficient in the posterior.

    As Eamon already pointed out in one of the Roast Gooble episodes, Mermista was depicted with a very ample backside. She was the J-Lo of PoP. I hope she's not flat like Classics Teela or Adora.

    Detachable at the waist perhaps? (With a tail attachment)

    I made a mock-up of what I would like Mermista to look like in MOTUC. I really suck at recolouring, so I did it really quickly and it erased the details in her shell bra and tail fin. Sorry about that!

    Here she is:



    Filmation design
    Filmation ankle fins
    Toy colours
    Toy bracelets
    Toy belt
    Toy boots
    Toy alternate head
    Added scale detail on body
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.
