    MOTUC Adora Video Review by Pixel Dan

    OK guys, she's here! Enjoy!



    As always, I'll do my best to answer any other questions you have!

    BA He-Ma is next!

    Edit: Just a note, I cannot share the music track in this video. I apologize. If I could, I definitely would. But I was asked not to, so I must stick to my word. Hope you guys understand.

    Great looking figure but I still hate how the "Granny Panties" look.

    Thanks for the review Dan. Love the POP music!

    No bobblehead? Great!!! Now Mattel needs to do that with Evil-Lyn and all the rest of the females!

    The "Granny Panties" are actually a skirt. I really wish people would stop calling them that. It's the standard dress sculpt used by Teela and the Goddess. I could see complaining about it if it were a body suit and it was puffy at the bottom like that.

    Fantatic review dan, we have waited a long time to see the She-Ra intro on your MOTUC reviews. What a great review, your Adora looks sooooooo much nicer than the one AFI got to review. I am sooooooo psyched for Friday! I can't wait untill I have her on m MOTUC shelf. But the first ting I will be redoing is triming down her skirt. I think this is the most beautiful female action figure the 4H have ever produced!

    IF YOUR SICK OF WAITING FOR A LIGHT TO APPEAR AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, STRIDE DOWN THERE AND LIGHT THE BLOODY THING YOURSELF!!!!!!!

    Heh...I guess so. But I don' thave that one. The logos I use now were given to me by Val and Emiliano to use.

    Glad you guys enjoy the review. Adora is a fantastic figure all around. My wife even loves her. She isn't really familiar with MOTU and PoP past what I have ever told her or made her watch (heh), but she really likes the Adora figure. She kept talking about how awesome she looked last night.

    -Her face is still awful and nowhere near the perfection of the prototype, IMO

    -Her "granny panties"/skirt part is still a bit too big and bulky looking

    Great picture! I feared his grip wouldn't be tight enough to grasp the sword. I still think it's the best looking sword to date though! I'll find a way to make a custom work for him.

    Agreed! I was gonna purchase Adora,but her face sculpt is so-so compared to the beautiful face on the prototype! I'm gonna have to pass on her and just buy Beast Man this time around.

    Her face is basically the same as SDCC. The main difference is her head no longer sits so high up on her neck and it's painted white. Take a look at some comparison pics I combined:

    Thanks for your review. I loved the shots you took (Adora rubbing the sword with one hand...oh wait, that sounds gross, sorry!) and how you showed us what was going on with the skirt and her head.

    I would like to know though, just how high up she can raise her right arm. I'm bummed they keep giving her (in every She-Ra figure) the "in front of you" holding hand instead of the "aloft" holding hand. So a photo showing us how high she can lift that arm would be great.

    I'm back on the fence and might want to pick her up. Gosh, I'm a sucker for supporting She-Ra. This figure ain't perfect, but with all this excitement, I may just cave in anyways.
