    THE GODDESS: Glows in the dark?

    Short subject for a thread, but:

    Does it look, to you, like the GREEN GODDESS might glow in the dark?

    Her skin looks really odd, especially around the knees. I think it'd be really cool if she did! We know so little about the character that it could be a feature of hers; do you think this is a feature they might have added, to further separate the figure from Teela?

    I think the figure is cast in green plastic, so she's translucent, so I don't know if she'll glow.

    highly doubtful. if she glowed in the dark the plastic would be alot more cloudy and they would have hyped this up to no end like they did with scareglow.

    I don't think she glows in the dark.

    I think she's painted like He-Ro's sword is painted. With a clear gel sort of paint.

    He-Ro's sword is NOT cast in blue plastic. It's cast in a clear plastic then painted with a clear blue clearcoat kind of paint.

    Don't believe me? Check out his sword handle, especially if you've taken it out of his hands a few times. You'll notice some chipping there.

    The Goddess looks like she got a similar treatment. I love how it goes from a blue-ish green to a yellow-ish green in spots. Again, I think that's got something to do with paints.

    Just my guess. It would explain how it can be a semi opaque translucency vs. a very clear translucency like Slimer with Egon.

    Whatever it is... I agree with most around here in that it's beautifully done! December can't come soon enough! But I've been saying that since July.

    Wishful thinking on my part, then. The translucent skin tone is very, very, interesting to me and from the new pictures it seems to give the impression of that type of glow-in-the-dark plastic.

    A glowing Goddess would be cool, but alas... AND: that's a better name than GREEN GODDESS; GLOWING GODDESS...!

    I really hope she is molded in clear green. I really don't want a action figure whose skin flakes off. I've seen to many posts on He-ros sword paint flaking.

    Yeah, i'm hoping for a clear green mold, too.

    I like the translucent look. Really cool.

    All I can say is it's about time we get this figure. I've been waiting since she was introduced in the mini's.

    I don't think she will glow in the dark (I won't oppose the idea). And she better not be made like He-Ro's sword, but made from clear green plastic.

    I hope she's not a glow in the dark, why should she? For Scareglow and Zodak it makes sence. But not for GG.

    Nah, no gamma radiation glow for me. I like it that she's just translucent.

    Except that she is a spirit. Spirits can glow right? She's described as glowing in the minicomic she's in.

    I don't feel like she has to glow. But it could've been cool, and appropriate.

    Hey! What you trying to do to me! If we keep getting glow in the dark figures I am not going to be able to sleep at night! I will be too freaked out with all my walls glowing.

    Ah I see, so it would make sense to glow. I don't know if spirits can glow? Never met one, I think, at least not a glowing one

    I don't think translucent plastics can glow. There is a reason why glow in the dark plastics look the way they do.

    for the majority you are correct.

    however there are plastics and materials that can be clearer and still glow the problem is they are very expensive and would almost never be used in action figures due to cost.

    The Goddess Bio

    Real Name: Sharella

    After the death of King Grayskull™, the Power of the Universe was transferred from the Sword of He to the Council of Elders, who hid it deep within his castle. Knowing the full sword was the key to channeling the power again, they split it in two to prevent it from falling into the hands of evil. For five centuries, they waited for a worthy heir to be born. During this time their spirit guide, the creature known as The Goddess of Eternia®, trained secret heroic guardians to keep the two halves of the sword separated. Many of these brave warriors took the name "He-Man®" in honor of the sword they protected giving birth to many different legends of the protector of Eternia®

    So then, the Goddess figure is meant to give the impression, by it's design and construction elements, to be a glowing spirit, hence the green skin? And there is no way she could actually glow because of the type of plastic they would have used for her?

    Also, someone mentioned that they would have hyped it up like they did for ScareGlow. But they didn't hype it for the Zodak release, right? Fans were writing Pixel Dan asking if the tattoos glowed, and it turned out they did. It's fine if she doesn't glow; I just think it would be neat if she did. A glowing spirit makes sense...

    I have 3 different He-Ro swords... the 2 from SDCC are slightly lighter blue, and have not chipped.. but it looks like they were shrink-wrapped in plastic glittery stuff... it looks great.

    The one I got with the regular version of He-Ro is a slightly darker blue, with less sparkles, and a CLEAR handle... and then a blue end of the handle. Weird.

    I HOPE the Goddess is like neither of these. I hope she is green plastic through and through... but translucent. I would hate for there to be bubbles or whatever, or cracks, or irregularities.

    I doubt that she will glow in the dark, but it will be awesome if she glows in the dark.
    I love the warrior ring that cames with Tri-Klops, so imagine another character besides Scareglow that also glows in the dark that would be awesome.

    What if she is cast in translucent plastic and painted with GitD paint?

    Hopefully she is like the "Fewture Devilman" figures from a few years back & is cast in the clear colored plastic, those looked great & had no problems.
