    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    i limited myself to 5 characters in this line, but i'm really starting to like this more and more

    Great review Dan.

    Admittedly, Adora is one of the reasons I subscribed! Thank goodness. It's going to be 'fun' trying to buy Beastman and Battle Armor He-Man without worrying about Adora too!

    Awesome review Dan! I was in awe the whole time. I felt like I was 5 again!

    I'm amazed at how far her head can move side-to-side! Nice softer hair. I hope King Grayskull gets this too. I think Mattel fixed the bobblehead issue with a shorter neck peg. Look at Adora SDCC pice. Her neck was really long like Teela's, so they may have taken the short peg suggestion.

    One thing about your Adora: I think her ball-socket shoulders are upside-down. Someone must have played with her before they put her in her packaging.

    EDIT: Is her "dress" plastic, the JLU rubber material they use for dresses and capes which collects dust something fierce and looks disgusting overtime, or something better?

    It woulda been nice if you mentioned how her power sword wasn't painted two tone like He-Mans (grey hilt/silver blade) since it's supposed to be a clone of it.

    I'm hoping that Mattel paints She-Ras blade two toned similar to He-Mans and just for continuity they make Adams all silver like Adoras

    She has nice pink panties. I wonder if there will be a "Party Adora" variant.

    Well, you noticed, so I guess I didn't have to mention it.

    In all honesty, I didn't even notice the lack of a two tone paint job. I was more noticing the difference in size and shape as compared to He-Man's. Not much of a clone, is it?
