    I hope they portray Teela as a woman as she appears on the cardbacks rather than a teenaged girl... fingers crossed for snake armor, too!

    But she is a teenage girl... She was the same age as Adam and Adam is a teenager too.. But it does depend on the canon you want to follow I suppose.

    But some teenage girl's are just that, and some look and carry themselves as women. That's the Teela we want!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I hope that we get exclusive packaging for Faker at the Con. It would be cool if they could do a "Faker-style" King Grayskull packaging...which would offset my shelves just fine

    I'm talking the real classic cannon, pre-Filmation days
    THAT's the Teela I'm hoping for!

    But odds are they are primarily sticking to the MYP continuity. If they do that the mature Teela would be out of place imo.

    Why would the odds be that they're sticking to MYP continuity, when outside of mixing King Grayskull into the line, they haven't been doing that?

    I'd say that since they are basing things first on the 80s toys and illustrations, that it would be surprising to get a Teela other than one based on the old card back art.

    Mattel said they were also going to use the 200x continuity. And if you read Beastmans bio on the cardback they are doing just that. That's the second 200x influenced bio out of the three we got. See where I was comming from?

    Even if they are not going by the 200x continuity even in the filmation series Teela was supposed to be a teenager although she wasn't really depicted as one. Which was a flaw of the old series imo. The only time Teela wasn't a teenager was in the pre-Filmation original comics.

    I know they are probably going to base her look on the 8-back, but that design is pretty ageless imo because she is wearing the armor.

    That being said, I would go for a more mature looking Teela, but I prefer a teenage one. I am not in the "Barbarian no-Prince Adam camp" and Adam was a teenager. Teenagers should look like teenagers and not like bodybuilders or mature women. But to each his own.

    I would consider the bios to be a blend of the various mythos - the basis of them is old school stuff with some MYP added in for added detail and flavor.

    Teela has only ever been a teenager in MYP and I'll be shocked if she's a teen in in MOTUC.

    Wow, that's actually not a bad idea for an accessory!

    I wouldn't want to see it given to every PoP character, but that would be a nice throwback for sure.

    RIGHT ON!!! We're getting Teela!!!!! I knew in my gut that she'd be the 1st female we're getting & now that it's been confirmed, I feel great. I'm really looking forward to these figures.

    I really hope that Teela as well as the other females are given feminine curves. I forget where I posted it before, but I made the Frank Cho reference. Do an image search for "Frank Cho Red Sonja" & THAT'S how I want the female Masters to look.

    As for Teela's (and Adam's) age, in the Filmation series, for some reason I always thought they were in their early 20's. 21 or 22. That was just my take though. I never had any evidence to clarify their proper ages.

    I agree completely, a Frank Cho style Teela is exactly what I want to see.

    Although my ideal Teela would be slightly less busty than Frank Cho typically draws his women, I would take that over an anorexic, ML-looking Teela any day.
