    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me

    She was available for 1 FULL year in 2014 @ $20.00, yet she was not Sold Out !!

    I guess people never liked her in bikini & blonde hair !!

    I have her and I think she's pretty cool. According to the minicomics this was her first look.

    Nope. She appeared in the DC comics mini series, not in the Mattel mini comics.

    Yeah, in the early minicomics, Teela did have long, blonde hair. But she had the more traditional Teela outfit. (Especially in the first three minicomics. It was simplified a bit in some like The Ordeal of Many-Faces.)
    But the DC three part comic had her both blonde and in the Classics-type outfit.

    I think her prototype was amazing, but her final figure had a horrible face. Didn't survive the production process at all.

    Actually, not many figures survived the production process, especially during Reuben's regime !!

    No, you're not totally confusing anything -not at all. Here she is in the Terror of Tri-Klops. Not the outfit from the DC series that inspired Battleground Teela, but similar hair and a more simple outfit than the earlier minicomics and what would become standard later...

    That's a headswap onto the original Classics Teela body to make Original Teela.

    She only wore that barbarian bikini in that one DC story because George Tuska didn't understand that Goddess without the Cobra armor represented Teela (Teela and the Goddess are actually a two-characters-in-one figure; armor OFF is Teela -- armor ON is the Goddess), so he created a new unique look for her. I guess it was explained to him later, since Teela is wearing her traditional leotard in the next issue, although still blonde. It's a reason why I brought multiple Teela's when she originally came out...

    1) Red-Haired Teela
    2) The Mike Texiera Caucasian Goddess
    3) Blonde Teela

    The early prototype toys she was blonde too wasn't she? Not sure when the hair changed to red.

    And Brandon's too!

    The derpy eyes we've gotten all year long plus the design choices on some figures have been atrocious.

    I was under the impression that her design was based off of this image (center, second row from bottom, Sharella).Screenshot_2015-11-27-15-44-29-1.jpg
    Is that not the case?

    I don't think so. Here she is from volume 1 (To Tempt the Gods) of the DC three-parter. Pretty sure this is it...

    My guess is that they could use the same paint they used on her boots for the hair color and not have to use another new color for her hair. IT was a money-saving thing. Like how He-Man's bracelets weren't even painted.

    That's not Brandon's doing, that is because they don't stamp the eyes on correctly at the factory. Every female character produced in 2015 has derpy eye problems. Good thing they have customer service stock.

    I always assumed that it was because of the way the red ponytail blended in with the red cobra hood.

    I think you're on to something here, because my vintage Teela was one of the ones with dark brown hair, and she had dark brown boots to match.

    That sounds very plausible!
