Heck, I got both versions of KG without a moment's regret, so the more, the merrier.
    About KG making Adam a wannabe, I think it's the other way around. King Grayskull makes Adam look better since Adam is not only surviving against Hordak, but he's also fighting Skeletor, King Hssss and Flogg as well.

    King Grayskull didn't make it past Hordak. Adam is hardly a KG wannabe if there's no way that he's good as Adam against the same foes and more.

    Given the removable bikini top on BG Teela gives us a bare midriff buck to work from, I can easily see Veena being made. Her leg armor could be placed on a new bare calf (at least a couple of POP re-uses for that) with new bare feet. An add on piece might work with Teela's lower arms. Some new parts needed, but several re-usable ones, so I think there's a very good chance of seeing her in the not too distant future.

    Thing about trying to reuse the BGT midriff is... How do the wings (which would need to be unique) attach? They go into her lower back, not shoulder blades like Angella or MYP-Sorceress, and the bare midriff leaves no room for a "backpack" piece to cheat it - surely they'd need to tool a torso piece with plugs for the wings.

    Somehow - especially with the name farce - I can't see them doing her before Sorceress. It COULD happen, since she'd be a monthly figure rather than a variant, but I can't really see them doing the derivative before the original.

    They could always attach the wings to her crotch... (New Crotch piece with a piece for the wings to attach to.)

    On her name, She could be Queen Grayskull: The First Sorceress. (Real Name Veena)
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I seriously would love her. She could lead the way for the rest of his crew and give us some great back story in the bios. As a figure she is very similar to some other figures we wan but that never stopped us asking for Faker or Mossman...

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    Can't believe I haven't posted. YES I want her. I'd like her to have her proper name "Veena" though, so however long that takes...aye that sucks.

    I'll be ready for Veena right AFTER Sorceress is released.

    I would love a Veena to join the Preternia display with King Grayskull.

    Well with the announcement of the Sorceress I would love to see Veena on the horizon. This past year I got most of the women I was waiting for Catra, Queen Marlena, Sorceress, Shadow Weaver, and the Star Sisters. Now I want Veena, Scorpia, Octavia, Madame Razz, Frosta, Glimmer, Castaspella, Angella, and Mermista. Would love it if 2012 would give us as many as 2011 did.

    One of the many things I love about this line is how Preternia is being fleshed out. It's a whole new world filled with endless possibilities, and yes of course it would be remiss not to have Veena as part of it.

    I may as well throw in my support for a 200x Sorceress here as well.

    Add me to the list of people that are surprised they haven't added their support here yet. I actually want a Veena more than I want many other figures in the line (with fan-demands that are much, much louder for characters that've already had 2 or 3 versions made over the years).

    Sadly, after seeing Battleground Teela, I don't think I'll like any of the figures that use that upper torso. It doesn't seem to take into account the amount of material used to cover the chest, making the top seem beyond-comically large (and horribly unattractive) to me. While it may be just due to the design of the bikini top on Teela, I doubt that's the case.

    Well, they can't really use the BGT torso for Veena anyway - she needs sockets in her lower back, similar to those in Swiftwind's shoulders, to plug the wings into!

    True, unless they built it into a possible new bikini bottom with a section that raises up to her lower back.

    It also, though, goes to show a problem any figure using that torso could have.

    I'd be very happy to be proven wrong on my assumption here, though.
