    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:

    Hi Dan,

    does Adora's dress allow any up/down - torso movement?

    I already asked this before, but I guess the question got lost under all the other posts.

    Nope. I don't think the female's even have the torso articulation built for up/down movement. The waist twist is all we really get.

    Teela would NEVER have had rooted hair in the 1980's toyline no matter how long her hair was!

    No.

    All Filmation Ghostbusters figures by Shaper had rooted hair:

    New Adventures of He-Man Battle Blade Skeletor had rooted hair:

    If any other MOTU figures HAD long hair, it would have been rooted. Please use the appropriate thread for this discussion:

    This is my last post regarding this issue in this thread. It all belongs in the link I posted.

    This line is MOTU - Feel lucky POP characters are appearing in it AT ALL casue this will probably never happen again.

    Comments like this make me see red. Listen bub, let's respect one another's rights to support our favorite toyline. Just because this website is called He-Man.org doesn't mean any of us She-Ra fans are LUCKY to be seeing any more She-Ra toys....or that are opinions aren't worth hearing. YOU are just as lucky to be seeing any more He-Man toys, don't forget that. And YOUR opinions about said toys are just as potentially frivolous as ours. So show some respect because this might be the last time YOU ever get to put down cash for a He-Man figure too! And wouldn't that be so sad...


    Anyways...the shot of Adora on Battle Cat is quite cool. But again, her hunched head is annoying. Geez that sword looks nice. Will I get her? Will I not get her?

    I think I'm going to hold off until She-Ra, and then maybe backtrack. Thanks again Dan for all the answers and pictures, you're a pal to all us eager beavers!

    This picture makes it LOOK like she should be able to tilt left, right and up and down a little bit. She's on a ball-jointed stomach (Tallstar's pics):

    Hey I am a She-Ra fan too and I want them all made (ALL OF THEM). I had a good deal of POP toys as a child and *I* feel lucky POP has been included in this line. I think MOTUC is a unique circumstance that has materialized and all fans of the sub-lines should feel somewhat lucky that each line has been included because they easily could have been ignored and this could have been a MOTU only line with only key characters crossing over. Mattel has really taken a unususal (and amazingly fufilling) step IMHO in reintruducing all these characters under one banner. It is somewhat of a risk. And we ARE lucky that we have another He-Man line at all. I was hesitant to even get involved with another He-Man line after the 200x line/series was cancelled. I hate getting into something to have it pulled out from under me. I think Mattel is making the right decision on the POP heads in ensuring the success of this line.

    I support rooted hair heads in a seperate box set. I really think that is the best way to go.

    Hey guys...
    Let's go ahead and take any talk of rooted hair for females to the appropriate thread.

    oh Dan I forgot it: she hair is a unique piece with her head or attached like He-Man?

    Too many contradictions in that answer to me!

    In fact her picture in the bio is from styleguide ....I think the was shamed to say that was not aware of that.

    Yes, those are the pictures I was thinking about when I asked the question.

    It does seem like the articulation would allow up and down movement. I don't think the softer dress-material is going to do much good without that up and down movement. Rotating the torso left or right on the now-announced female-figures makes the dress look funny. I could imagine rotation working on women who have a skirt with a horizontal cut on it.

    EDIT: And thank you for the answer, Pixel Dan!
