    That was something that bugged me too, so I asked Mattel in Round 28 of the Q&A's about it. They said they thought it was a great idea and they would try and change it for She-Ra's sword.

    Exellent review Pixel Dan. Loved the use of the PoP music and She-Ra transformation.

    Can you show a picture of Adora riding Battle Cat, just to give an idea of how she'll look on Spirit/Swift Wind?

    One (made-up) word, prophesized. It's not a word. I posted this multiple times on the boards, and even sent toy guru a pm about it, yet there it is, in all it's misprinted glory.

    Wow...you're right. I just looked the word up, and it's not in the dictionary. Crazy.

    I only harp on your reviews cuz I figure Mattel and the 4H and anyone in some control of the brand watch them as well as us and any critiques you can pass along that they'd see would be better for all of the fans in the end

    Hahaha. I would expect nothing less! If one can't spell, surely they can just make up words, right? I think that's how it works.

    I wonder if by 2012 the line will be allowed the privilege of having someone roof read things?

    Nah.

    It's prophesied.

    Either that, or it's one big prophecy!

    Much like Mattel misspelled descendants on the Grayskull plaque.

    Prophezised is a word, although some style guides and dictionaries exclude it. Merriam-Webster dates the word to 1848. It's the inflected form of the verb prophesize.
    Most printed dictionaries are just way to small to include every word, in all their forms, and few online ones are complete.

    Great review! I'm happy you were able to get her before she was released. Just when I thought I was looking forward to Evil-Lyn more, I think I might have to change my mind to Adora.

    Well considering there was a time when all the words we use weren't in existence, who's to say that isn't a word? They add new definitions to Webster's all the time.

    You may be right about prophesized. Microsoft Word recognizes it as a real word spelled correctly. Touche!

    PixelDan: About Adora's clothes, are they a plastic or a rubber? Do you have an JLU figures? Is it like their rubber capes/dresses? I hope not, because they collect dust something fierce.

    Are you sure about that? Why would there be the word prophesy, and prophesize, when they mean the exact same thing?

    "Go and prophesy."

    "He prophesied."

    In other words, why would they make up a different way of spelling a word that already existed? King James Bible, translated in 1811 (I believe) has it, prophesy. I don't know, maybe you're right. It just seems alot redundant to me though.

    Aniway, Adorah looks grate doughn't shee!?

    Nope, it's not rubber like the DCU stuff. It's plastic. Just a softer plastic than Teela's was, but not too soft.

    Don't hate me because I'm beautiful...errr...have MOTUC!

    Yeah, I was surprised to see Trap-Jaw in the box with the others. I was hoping to surprise you guys with that review, but then AFI put pictures of him up this morning so I figured I better just tell you guys I have him before I get asked. I've got a set of the new stands too. So, that review will be up this week as well!

    Yeesh...four MOTUC reviews in one week! I'm going to be busy!!

    Fairly sure, yes:

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Prophesize

    I think it's quite simply that being such a large language, there's bound to be lots of similar and redundant words, and developments over time.

    And on topic: She looks fine although a little plain. I'm waiting for the She-Ra-version. I'm happy that PoP-fans are going to get some new figs except for She-Ra, since the original line.

    Excellent review as always! Adora looks incredible. I'm not bothered by the skirt anymore. After seeing the review, I can actually tell that it's a skirt and not granny panties.
