    Wave 3 of the 2-packs could've been so much better. She-Ra's gold parts could've been recolored to match her cartoon appearance. Add a silver/grey shield, and I would be in. Why they didn't recycle Hordak's gloves on Zodac, I'll never understand.

    And don't even get me started on how a handful of folks got their idea realized with Battle Armor Faker, all the while those waiting 30 years for Magenta Armor Faker get nothing. *sigh*

    Surely that can be accommodated with a couple of Weapons Pak pieces. A lot less complicated than the five piece (Clamshell + three plates) BA.

    I said the same thing, but deleted my post because I forgot about Skeletor's skirt. In MOTUC it is non-removable and therefore impossible to do in a Weapons Pack.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Here’s a few more observations and thoughts on the Supergirl vs She-Ra two-pack image:

    1) Presume the reason why Supergirl appears to be the same size as She-Ra even though the action figures are different sizes is due to the artist deciding to increase Supergirl’s size to make the fight look fairer.

    2) She-Ra appears to be hovering in mid-air like Supergirl! Does this mean She-Ra can fly without Swiftwind’s help? Have a look at her feet, they are not flat as if they’re in contact with the ground and her feet are not bent as if she is standing on her toes. And the shadow doesn’t stop at her feet as it would if she was in contact with the ground. Her hair and cape are also moving as if being blown in the wind. Again, this might have been done so that She-Ra and Supergirl would appear to be fighting at the same visual level.

    3) Supergirl’s facial expression looks shocked or worried as if she suddenly fears She-Ra. This is in keeping with the He-Man vs Superman comic fight where the front cover had Superman thinking he might die when facing He-Man.

    4) She-Ra appears ready to decapitate Supergirl with her sword. Is She-Ra in to extreme violence? And why does She-Ra need to use her sword and shield against an unarmed opponent? She is the most powerful woman in the universe after all.

    5) The text explanation or bio on the back of the two-pack suggests She-Ra is on Eternia having followed Hordak after defeating the Horde on Etheria. The battleground of Castle Grayskull would therefore seem appropriate if it is assumed that the Masters (or Hordak?) have called in reinforcements from Earth (including Supergirl) for the final battle for Eternia.



    6) The emphasis on training in Supergirl’s bio suggests She-Ra is taking the opportunity to show the “young heroine-in-training” Supergirl a few moves and of course not to get too close to anyone swinging a shiny magic sword as it might end-up hurting a lot. She-Ra should make an excellent teacher having been trained as Adora at a young age by the evil Horde before fighting against them. She can also use her healing powers to cure any injuries resulting from realistic practice fights.

    7) As Supergirl is fighting She-Ra and DC have already produced a He-Man comic thereby placing He-Man and the MOTU World in the wider DC Universe, it would appear that DC have now formally recognised She-Ra as the most powerful woman in the (DC) Universe.

    Well after getting Queen Marlena. The eyes were not that bad! But I did try to fix them a bit more. Gave her brown eyes. I didn't have any green paint that would work well enough. Think it looks good.

    Awesome write-up and great photos. I cannot wait for man-e. He looks so good.

    Very interested to read their upcoming interview with treadaway as well.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Nice to see the Star Sisters name dropped!

    I did notice one error though about Man-E-Faces. It should say that he prefers white eyes to black, not red.

    Anyhow, can't wait to get him.

    Mr Fwoosh person, you're pictures are INCREDIBLE. You should be hired to do publicity for Mattel, because these shots get people's mouths watering for the figures like nothing else.

    The one pic of Marlena leading the guards looks like Anakin leading the assault on the Jedi temple from Episode III. Cool stuff.

    Can't decide if the one leading the guards or the pic with Optikk is my favorite. They are all excellent. Really impressive!
