    I'm curious as to what her original name was going to be. If you look at the bio, Sharella is a sticker laid over.
    JITSU!!!! Thank the Elder Gods!!!!

    Nice figure, although the pose in the box does slightly look like she's hitch-hiking!

    LOL! Totally! Or like she's selling that stuff and saying "Hey, yo big fella! Check out dees goods ova here! I give you a great deal, but today only--I gotta move dis stuff real quick-like, if ya know what I'm sayin!"


    This may be the first bio I haven't liked, but I'm not sure just yet. I was thinking that this is this their way of combining all the different versions/incarnations of He-Man, but I think of the He-Man we know (from whichever series) as being able to become He-Man from having both halves of The Sword Of Power, but the bio says that the He-Guys help keep it separated...I'll have to let this one marinate for a bit.

    The figure looks great, the real name sounds good too.

    Now, regarding the bio, it seems that The Goddess is the key to the new Mattel's concept of "He-Man".

    And "He-Man" has now become a title !

    THIS WILL ALLOW AN EASY TRANSITION FOR WUN-DAR, EVENTUALLY SAVAGE HE-MAN, AND LATER ON IN ETERNIA'S TIMELINE, 200X HE-MAN AND N.A. HE-MAN.

    We can consider all these "he-men" different successors to the title, from past until present, and encompassing the future.

    It makes the He-Man we all know and love (Prince Adam who becomes He-Man) way less charismatic, in my opinion.

    But of course, it leaves SO MANY open doors for zillions of He-Man concepts, repaints and variants... And so, in my opinion, this is just another commercial tactics for future possibilities.

    I just hope we won't see tens of repaints and variants. Alas, this sad trend has already begun as soon as the subscription has been launched. I fear for the future of MOTUC, and dread infinite repaints and variants that are able to ruin the line, just like it happened with the 200X line.

    Well this bio raises more questions?

    Is the mustache less head the Man-At-Arms came with not Duncan but the Man-At-Arms from the Barbarian He-Man Era?

    Is the Blonde Teela actually Teela Na before becoming the Sorceress? Is the Goddess her mother?

    How did Barbarian He-Man fight Skeletor? Was it Demo-Man meaning he walked Eternia before Keldor's time?

    Is Beast-Man and Mer-Man now titles passed down through time?

    See, I think all those questions show how great this bio is. It's an example of how we can all make our own canons or stories how we prefer them.

    Can we officially get rid of the "green" part of her name now? and just call her what her original name was in the mini-comic: "the goddess"
    My MOTUC top 10 wants (POST NYTF 2014):

    Queen Angella - Hunga the Harpy - Peekablue -Mermista - Veena - Red Knight - Vultak - Dylamug - Sibyline - Kex Queen

    The best part of her bio is that it open's up the possibility of having multiple looking He-Man figures.

    Eh, bio's kinda bland.

    And the colors look too muted for my taste.

    Otherwise looks pretty cool!
    Glad we're getting her for sure!!

    Anyone noticed the line "Real Name: Sharella"?

    Maybe it's just the way the photo took, but it looks to me as if this is stuck over something else, like they've changed their minds on what the real name is?

    Sweeeeeet. Thank you Matty, Toyguru, Four Horsemen!!!!

    The translucent skin is a VERY nice touch!

    A very interesting bio. Still letting it soak in. So apparently "He-Man" in the "He-Man and the Power Sword" wasn't Adam then?

    He-Man has become a title? Hmmm.... again, letting it soak in...

    The many He-Man concept now works better for me. I recently rewatched the 200x three parter and the Sorceress declared Adam would become He-Man and in my head that was just odd. As if there was a lineage there, of different He-Men...if you get what I mean.

    Not sure about he skin tone, but I'm o used to the fan versions done by Baena and others, its kinda tainted my memory.
    JITSU!!!! Thank the Elder Gods!!!!

    As I've mentioned in various threads over the years, I've often dreamed about (and started to sketch out many times) what I'd love a live-action MOTU TV series to be like.

    One of my ideas, to be explored in the second season, was of a 'previous He-Man', taking place in the Pre-Filmation era. It finally looks as if these longing dreams of mine are coming to life (in bios, anyway). I love it!

    Yes, that'a brilliant bio that solves elegantly the issue regarding prince adam (filmation) vs barbarian (alcala minicomic) HE-MAN.

    The most elegant bio until now that opens may possibilities.

    I like it a lot.

    Nice shot Mattel!

    Aye, I too am gonna let that sit.
    It kinda rationalises the name and gives it a bit history but do I want other heros bearing the name He-man?
    But then it mean... it's Adam's He-man.... which sounds kinda cool! It Adam that makes this He-man so special! ....mmm

    I'm digging everything we saw today. The look, the bio, the whole deal. This bio does a good job of paving the way for us to see other iterations of He-man...and perhaps a crop of original characters as a result.

    so he-man isn't a person but a title given to random barbarians, hmmm who let that nugget of genius through
    And so I walk, into the searing light which banishes all darkness, surrendering my face and form to atoms of dust, seeking the true darkness of peace,the cool shadows of eternity and the unknown fate of nothingness
