    I like that Adora's bio makes mention of the sword being a KEY to unlock power. Not the SOURCE of the power. It makes more sense why there could be two. I mean, even I have two car keys.
    I can live with Etheria being in Despondos, I think I kinda like it..

    As for the Power, I believe the power dwells inside Castle Grayskull. In the 200X cartoon, the power is revealed to be an orb buried deep inside a crystal chamber with bottomless pits.

    It also brings up the reason why Adam and Adora have to say "Grayskull" to activate the power.

    Does anyone know where Adora's bio picture came from?

    It's from the licensing guide. It's because of that picture that it was possible for them to make Adora with that look. The same guide also contains many more POP characters in Filmation style. But Adora is the only Filmation-only character over there unfortunately. The Licensing guide is not to be confused with the Style guide.

    Thanks Arthur. I guess the blue background must be new though, as the licensing guide pictures just has the characters.

    I don't think I've actually seen the style guide, does anyone have pics?

    Thanks for posting that AdamOP! Does that mean that all of the design shown in that video are OK for MOTUC? If so, that is incredibly, wickedly awesome!!!

    Also, I have to say that I LOVE Adora's Bio. The magically cloned sword explains why there could be two, and I like that Adora's is augmented with the stone of Protection. (Was that one of He-Ro's spellstones? I fail to recall at the moment, although I don't think it was.) The fact that Etheria is in Despondos is exactly what I was hoping for, since it allows for pretty much all aspects of POP to becounted in. I am a very happy She-Raver right now, and I love the direction in which this points us.

    I really want to flesh out the intricacies of the Power. He-Ro's bio led me to think that the sword was the only really important element, although mention of the Council's power has been ade as well. Was Grayskull important before the Sword of He was hidden deep within? I like to think that it was.

    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

    Ah, so Etheria is in the dimension of Despondos, which means, Despondos is not a planet but a seperate universe by itself. Interesting...

    So, does that mean that She-Ra cannot be released in her Filmation likeness?

    Adam_Portugal:

    I've seen those pictures before, they're from the Licensing guide. I thought the Style guide was a different thing? Or are the two guides in fact one-and-the-same?

    Maybe Etheria wasn't always in Despondos, but was somehow sucked in by the Horde--similar to how MVC wanted Eternia to be trapped within Despondos.

    That could also explain why the Sorceress could not locate Adora in her years of searching.

    That's a good explanation, and could give the Rebellion a 2nd reason to fight, not only do they want to overthrough the Horde, but they also want to return Etheria to where it belongs!

    Where's Battle Cat's bio in this thread?

    Oh, and the other night, I edited all of the Bios together, picking each apart and trying to put them into some sort of chronilogical order in a semblance of streaming narrative. I avoided adding any personal flourishes or filling in gaps with anything not officially mentioned so far. I'll post it another day...

    I'm also wondering what this style guide/liscensing guide thing is. What can MOTUC use and what can't they use? My quick logic is that anything made into a toy in the past can be made into a toy now. But, anything coming from the cartoon, not made into a toy is not useable. Is that right?

    Here is the Princess of Power licensing guide:

    http://www.grayskullmuseum.com/pop/l...ngpopindex.htm

    It gives access to all POP figures that were made as figures and Adora. The good thing about this guide is that all figures with the exception of Swiftwind, Arrow and the Crystal Castle are portrayed with their Filmation look which means that Mattel can make Filmation She-Ra, Catra, Glimmer, Bow, Adora etc. This does not necessarily mean that they will be released like that. Toyguru said that whether a figure will be made as portrayed in the licensing guide or they will inspire themselves to the toys will be decided on a figure by figure basis. For instance in the MOTU licensing guide Hordak is blue but they did the grey one.

    The style guide is off limits (as far as we know). It portrays all POP figures including those that were never released as figures like Shadow Weaver. Mattel has said that they do not have access to those figures.

    Ok, so the licencing guide is fair game. Does anyone have a link to the off-limits style guide? I don't think i've ever seen it.

    Somebody posted a link to the style guide some time ago. I believe it was AlessadraF. Unfortunately I can't find that post anymore.

    The missing word in the Battle Cat bio is parek-narr. There is a picture of the creature somewhere over here. It's a dinosaur like creature.

    Parek-Narr. Sounds like a Star Wars creature to me. (That's not a bad thing, I love SW!)

    Oh, and Arthur, my mother's family is from Malta! I would love to travel there sometime!

    Oh, and I'm at my parents' house right now, so I can't post that narrative I mentioned above.

    Patrick, thanks for posting Battle Cat's bio, by the way!

    I was originally against Wun-Dar's bio but it has grown on me. Trap-Jaw's bio is just like reading a condensed version of the Icons of Evil comic
