Teela can change out of that outfit once in a while as her clothes aren't permanently bonded to her. I'm sure she doesn't go to bed in it but probably sleeps completely naked.
    Actually from what I see here she does sleep in it And her boots!!!

    I guess I should update this thread with this tidbit from August 7th. Matty was answering a few fan questions that day on Facebook and I couldn't resist asking about a blonde Teela variant...

    Matty, if I could pick your brain for a minute....if Teela was originally a blonde, why isn't she that way in MOTUC? Is there a bonus figure coming or special head in an accessory pack representing this original look?

    This would be a great way to refresh Teela again down the road, but no plans in the immediate future.
    I wasn't asking specifically about THIS Teela, but packing that variant head with this look would definitely kill two birds with one stone.

    She was probably just taking a nap. They were hardly going to treat us to naked Teela and her bare boobs in the mini comics.

    And to add to the point I was making earlier to Multibot, and this applies to Vorgon too, is that blonde fictional female characters are far less common than you'd think. There are tons of red heads (as listed above) so a red-haired Teela is nothing out of the ordinary and would be much more generic. A blonde Teela WOULD be different and special.

    Other red heads would include Maxima, Mystique, the original Shanna, Tigra, Vindicator (Heather Hudson), Gypsy Moth, Bethany Cabe, Spitfire to name a few.

    Other non-blonde female characters include:

    Wonder Woman, Huntress, Catwoman, Spider-Woman I, Batwoman, Wonder Girl, Vampirella, Big Barda, Psylocke, Storm, Vixen, Viper, Wasp, Zatanna, Mary Marvel, Elasti-Girl, Jade, She-Hulk, Star Sapphire, Kitty Pryde, Silver Sable, Scarlet Witch, Isis, Witchblade.

    Virtually all the major comic characters aren't blonde except for a handful.

    Even Black Canary isn't really a blonde.

    Teela na When I said blonde makes her generic I mean when you think barbarian chick a blonde girl wearing leopard skin clothing comes to mind like barbarella or Shana(savage land boxset) you don't think firey red head.At least I don't think red head.

    Those are some of the greatest females characters you brought up who aren't blonde so why would you want to deny Teela to be popular group?
    Instead you guys want to put her with Emma Frost,Magik,Purfuma,Double Trouble, Super Girl,Vandala, Sweet Bee,Buffy,Angella,She -ra,Power Girl,Sue Storm,Ms.Marvel,Magma,Sailor Moon.

    I'm just giving you a hard time. I just am not a blonde lover and I think for me Teela would loose something if you take her red hair away.BUT I can see if blonde Teela was the first way you knew her why you would want her blonde.

    Only that Barbarella wasn't a barbarian but a space chick, never wore leopard skin and wasn't blonde:






    Blonde Shanna (from the Savage Land box set) is not the original version either but a reimagining, just like red-haired Teela from the Filmation cartoon is a reimagining of the original blonde Teela. Blonde Shanna isn't even in proper Marvel continuity but is just called Shanna because she resembles the comic character. The original Shanna is a red head:



    If you're talking about girls in leopard skins, they're jungle girls not barbarians. As far as I know, Teela was never a jungle girl. When you think of barbarian girls too, the stereotypical image is probably a red head like Red Sonja. While anyone can edit Wikipedia, I agree with this paragraph on her entry:

    Red Sonja has become the archetypical example of the fantasy figure of a fierce and stunningly beautiful female barbarian who typically wears armor resembling a bikini or lingerie.

    Those are some of the greatest females characters you brought up who aren't blonde so why would you want to deny Teela to be popular group?
    Instead you guys want to put her with Emma Frost,Magik,Purfuma,Double Trouble, Super Girl,Vandala, Sweet Bee,Buffy,Angella,She -ra,Power Girl,Sue Storm,Ms.Marvel,Magma,Sailor Moon.
    But now you're contradicting yourself because if all those greatest females aren't blonde, then how can it make blonde Teela generic and not special anymore? If anything, as a blonde, she's more likely to stand out. Red heads are probably far more common among females in comics.

    I'm just giving you a hard time. I just am not a blonde lover and I think for me Teela would loose something if you take her red hair away.BUT I can see if blonde Teela was the first way you knew her why you would want her blonde.
    As Battle Brak mentioned in another thread:

    Similarly, the red haired Filmation Teela is like most people knowing the Adam West Batman which was the popular version in people's minds for decades.

    I don't care if her hair is blonde, red, or strawberry blonde, as long as her hair looks like this. That's Teela! I don't mind her current head at all though, but would like to see this down the line.

    That's why it would be a good idea for Mattel to make THIS Teela (which would come with the hair down look) and come with the alternate blonde head. That way you could switch heads at your leisure.

    Do you think her bikini top armor might have trouble staying on? Not that I would be complaining.

    Nice to see this thread popping back up.

    After finally seeing how fantastice the TEELA figure turned out, it makes me wish for a 'Savage' TEELA all the more. The HORSEMEN would make it rock!

    First, I must reiterate that I would love this version of Teela, and my (very blonde) girlfriend would also appreciate the change of hair color. Still, Teela is and always will be a red-head to me. I'd take both versions anyhow!

    Oh, and (in most incarnations) April O'Neil is a red-head!

    She's also shown wearing some sort of nightgown in the MYP episode "Ties That Bind".

    It's just the santized, kiddies version. A true warrior goddess sleeps in the nude.

    If they are just adding dresses to bare bodies (If the upper torso underneath Teela's dress has a sculpted stomach and navel, then all a DC Teela would need is just three new pieces (head, bra and lower torso).

    If there isn't sculpting underneath, then it's four new pieces and even more unlikely, because they have to sculpt a new bare female torso. IIRC, DC Teela might be the only MOTU character with a bare stomach.

    She most likely would be a bonus figure ala Battle Armor He-Man, so she wouldn't interfere with the standard monthly releases.

    What would she be called? Horny Male Fantasy Teela? With so many people talking about removing her clothes(not that it's beneath me to try myself...), that's what it seems like.

    Well, she is the least dressed out of the MOTU females, so I'd expect the whole Slave Leia vibe that this figure can channel.

    Good question though...what "official fandom name" do we call DC Comics Teela?

    To Tempt the Gods Teela?
    Blonde Teela?
    Barbarian Teela?
    Bikini Teela?
    Off Hours Teela?
