    vintage Princess of Power presentation from Power-Con 2016

    At Power-Con 2016, Mattel's Darren Sander and Garrett Sander presented an archive of never-before-seen vintage She-Ra: Princess of Power artwork and photographs, which included images of the unreleased Star Sisters and Whispering Woods playset! And now, thanks to Mattel and the Sander brothers, we present those images for your enjoyment.

    Hoping Power-Con returns in 2017!

    I "ran" (quickly logged in) as soon as I saw this on the main forum page.

    Now I need a moment before I click on the Gallery link to prepare myself for the high-quality goodness.

    Great to see, would so love them to take out a commemorative release of them, next year will be the 30th anniversary of the line ending, so maybe?

    Very cool to see these pictures! I like the card art with all the crystals for the Star Sisters a lot.

    Love the idea of the Whispering Woods playset, but I don't think it was the best design. Maybe just some plastic trees with a throne and a few other accessories would have been better than one big molded foldable playset?

    Yeah, the design doesn't quite work. I can see why it was canceled.

    Starla is so amazingly beautiful - it's a shame what Filmation and classics did to her
    ...but as they did the same with Perfuma (one of the most beautiful vintage figures, now one of the most ugly classics figures, thanks to Filmation), I do not really wonder.
    ...if they just would've managed somehow to transport the beauty of the vintage POPs into classics (well, I'm fine with Flutterina, but most of the rest of them...)

    Super 7: Please make at least a new (prototype capturing) head and a backpack for Starla and give her back the beauty she deserves

    Thanks so much for posting these. It is really neat to see the prototype drawings for the Whispering Woods set, and so interesting to see the stag on the treasure chest in one of the drawings after the information about Swift Wind originally being a stag. Personally I would have loved that play set back in the day! And I'm sure I would have figured out a way to use that microphone to scare my sister.

    I wish the Whispering Woods prototype had been discovered / revealed MUCH earlier in the timeline of MOTUC so that fans could have potentially petitioned for it to be re-imaged and released as a MOTUC compatible playset.

    I think it looks pretty awesome, although I prefer the interior of the first (?) prototype, which looks like it was meant to be the naturally / magically formed interior of a large hollow tree in the woods as opposed to the later (?) prototype where the interior doesn't seem as "organic".

    I had a dream last night that we got vintage style Star Sisters. It was so disappointing when I woke up.
