    I would've preferred her to be packaged out as Delora as well, even though I'm a loose collector.
    That way Hawke (200x version) could then be made in the line as well as a separate character.

    Perhaps they used Hawke because Mattel already had the name trademarked but not Delora's and just transitioned that to Super 7.

    I hope they do answer your question and perhaps make that change, if it won't delay her release.
    I'm working on a custom jetpack for her right now. It's not that tricky with the Delora head because the hair is narrower. If they'd have designed her with one it would have been easy to tailor the sculpt of the hair to work with it.

    That was an issue on both heads with mine. Easy fix with super glue but there was a big gap between the hair and the helmet.

    Hawke is the only figure I opened from my set, and I'm pretty disappointed with the overall quality of the figure. The shoulder joint is extremely loose, you flip the figure upside down, and the should will rotate in that direction. The mid torso waist was a bit loose too, plus some of the paint slop which I was expecting. The quality of the plastic seems to be a bit better than the Powercon figs. Im also scared to pop up head to expose the neck a little bit.

    Still undecided if i wanna preorder wave 2...but Im leaning on just dropping the line. Its a little hard to drop the money on figures with spotty QC.

    Does anyone with the figure know if Hawke's helmet and bottom face are separate pieces, or is it one sculpted piece?

    My Hawke & Delora look great with mini-comic Stratos.

    I like the new female sculpt attempt. Plastic feels ok. Her breasts are nice, her midsection looks good, and her buttocks look good. I don't mean to say that to be risque necessarily, but the male figures highlight what it is to be a male, so making the females a little sexier is welcome. I still love my Mattel MOTUC females, but I think Super7 are allowing the 4H sculpt to be a little more as they intend. I remember that original Frosta sculpt, lol.

    I am not a super fan of her leg cut, but it's ok.

    Didn't have a hard time taking the head off Hawke, but a little effort to put on the Delora.
    Anyone have a pic of that original frosta sculpt? I’m curious.

    Finally have mine in hand and I hate to say but I think she looks even worse in person.
    Those proportions, yeesh.

    Head is too big, no neck, torso is too short, chin juts out too much.
    She looks like she dropped her ice cream on the floor and has been sulking ever since.

    Even worse that both heads have the exact same miserable expression. Would’ve been great if Delora had a smile or a softer expression.
    Stratus is super creepy for marrying someone who looks identical to his sister.

    Even putting tack on the neck to raise the head isn’t helping it much for me.
    I’m tempted to try lightly sanding the chin/jaw a little but I don’t want to mess it up.

    I may also dremel down the chins on mine, repaint the faces, and maybe add teeth to Delora. I am afraid also, because I think the head is hollow, if I dremel down too much, there might be a hole in the chin. I will take that chance on one of the heads.

    I opened my Hawke tonight with my daughters. They tested out the joints, checked paint apps, etc. We were playing the Pixel Dan video and when he was talking about the heads being soft I decided to swap heads. Bad idea. Neck peg snapped right off

    They have the same name, but Stratos' sister and his wife are very different individuals:

    That's exactly what I said when that Bio was published! That Bio has nothing to do with either of the figure possibilities included in the package on which it appears:

    The Masters of The Universe Classics figures of Hawke and Delora are both based on their FILMation TV show canon appearances, where Hawke was a non-related rival of Stratos, and Delora was his loyal heroic sister. The Bio on the card-back is for two completely different characters (from alternate media), where Hawke (as seen in the 200X Series/Comics) was depicted as Stratos' brash but loyal sister, and Delora (from DC Comics and a Mini-Comic appearance) was his lovely human wife.

    The Bio from the back of Hawke's package is brand-new Masters of The Universe Classics canon, and was written before the writers knew which version of the characters would be produced as figures. This (kind of) explains the confusion in printing a Bio on a package which has nothing to do with the actual figure(s) in the package.

    Here's a handy chart I made up to differentiate all the Hawkes from (almost!) all The Deloras:
    All the Avion Girls.jpg

    Please forgive my belaboring the point. I'm afraid the wayward continuity concerning the women in Stratos' personal life is one of my MoTU "Hot-Button Issues", 'though I've been told that it's not important. Take Care! :^)

    Haha thanks for clearing that up. I was just making a little joke with regards to the bio and the likeness of the two figures.

    The version of Delora I'm most familiar with is the Ladybird version with the blue outfit. I would've preferred to see her and/or the 200X Hawke design before this version, but hey ho.

    People should be using a hair dryer to swap heads on any of these Super 7 figures. The heads are way too hard and the necks are way too soft.

    Thank YOU, Fright Zone! The Hawke/Delora figure(s) that we've gotten are nice, but I guess BOTH of our allegiances lie elsewhere.

    How about someone from Super-7 addresses this? This is getting ridiculous. We just put down money for wave 2, and now are expected to put orders in for Powercon figures. What kind of assurances will we have that our figures will not break with normal intended use?

    Certainly the weakest of the wave. The head sitting too low, hips too wide and her inability to hold her sword properly. I guess they wanted to make the sword usable by male and female figures but they should have focused on it being able to fit the hand of the figure it came with. As it is it looks silly having her hold it by the tip of the handle.
    She looks so plain next to the other three as well. Really could have done with just a little more detailing.

    Hawke/Delora is a great looking figure. However, she was a pass for me since I'm currently only collecting the Filmation due to funds.

    If you ever get the chance,grab her then. She was put in the wrong packaging and is a total filmation figure.

    I received my replacement in 1 week. Great service from Super 7! I also successfully removed the head. Not sure what they all want sent back with the return label as I didn't save everything from the defective first one..

    Yeah, this kind of thing is why I'm more inclined to be a bit forgiving with Super 7's first "official" MOTUC wave...Mattel wasn't QC or bad decision free throughout their runs....and if fans spotted something wrong with a figure, they never even ATTEMPTED to fix it.
