    Will MOTUC Adora Be The Alter-Ego To Your She-Ra?

    That might sound like an odd question, but it's being put out there with the assumption that we're getting a toy-based She-Ra.

    So if we end up getting that version of She-Ra, will you pretend she's also Adora like the classic 80s figure or will Filmation-style Adora be the true Adora in your mind?

    The current Adora figure will be her secret identity.

    An excellent question from Tallstar and great reminder from He-Ryno. This Adora while being Filmation accurate - or as close to it as possible- Is not going to transform into Filmation She-ra, rather she is going to transform into MOTUC She-ra -whatever she ends up looking like.

    It's kinda exciting, She-ra is getting a new/old look!

    In my universe Adora is Beast Mans alter-ego...just being silly of course.

    No in my mind MOTUC Adora will be the alter-ego to MOTUC She-Ra. I am holding out hope that She-Ra looks more like the cartoon than the original toy did. If they can model her after the 200X toy version I will be a happy camper. Either way I cannot wait to see what they come up with for She-Ra!

    I hate the secret identity thing. It does have it's rare moments, but mostly, I don't like it.

    In my MOTU, Adora is just the Princess of Eternia. She was never captured by the Horde as an infant. Adora is basically a serious Adam. A humanitarian with a warm heart. And, like all members of the Royal Family, can defend herself if need be.

    Everything happens on Eternia. Frosta, Angella, Castaspella...those guys rule Eternian kingdoms.

    She-Ra is a noble paladin of mysterious origin who arrived to battle evil.

    O.M.G. I'm so never inviting you over for a playdate!

    (I will admit, I prefer my He-Man with no Adam, but love an Adora with my She-ra, how else would we get all the pretty transformation fireworks?)

    In my personal MOTU canon, Adora is the alter ago of She-Ra, and Adora's younger brother is Adam. However, Adam's alter ego is not He-Man.

    While I don't think I quite grasp the question being asked here, I will say that for the most part, I agree with MegaGearMax's notion here, with the exception that Adora and She-Ra are one and the same person, same as He-Man and Adam.

    Like you, I am secretly hoping for a toy-based She-Ra... but I don't know, I think this Adora figure will be the alter-ego. It's finally a combo of the Filmation and toy-based Adora/She-Ra.

    BUT, I wonder if her cape will be removeable in such a way that it doesn't detract from the rest of her armor... same for her mask... I wonder if it will be reverseable (to turn it into a mask).

    I hope we get BOTH versions of She-Ra. I still believe 100% Adora was able to be made because of the Style Guide...where they got her picture for her bio. So, Style Guide She-Ra is identical to Filmation She-Ra...just with a gold sword.

    Anyways, yes. Adora = She-Ra...forever. Maybe 80's toy She-Ra can be her "Battle Armor"?

    That's a good idea. The battle armor can be the toy-style icon on her chest, with the mask being a helmet type thing... more armor-like - similar to the old Golden Girl style.

    I just can't wait. I wonder when she's going to be released. I am guessing Christmas. OR, maybe before the con, to help build some serious momentum.

    We might see a con She-Ra, you never know. I know ToyGuru keeps telling us we look too deeply into things, but here's a post from today:

    The last part sounds like they tried to get a She-Ra statue, but didn't have the budget (it would be very expensive for an all-new statue). All other statues promoted the figure at that con...Grayskull, Faker, etc. So..why would they want a She-Ra statue? I'm probably reading too deeply into it. But what if I'm right!?

    I'm hoping that She-Ra will be released in June. However, since Optikk is coming in May, I doubt they'll release a POP the month right after a NA release. I'd hate to have to wait the entire year for She-Ra. They should release her in July or August, that way fans who don't like POP characters can still but the SDCC exclusive, which will likely be based on either vintage MOTU or POG.

    I never liked the fact that She-Ra doubled as Adora in the old line.

    Filmation Adora is and always will be my version of Adora. She-Ra is just that character enhanced with the power of Grayskull. Whether they base her too on the Filmation art, or the toy, it makes no difference to me.

    Filmation Adora has and will always be the true Adora. With that said I really hope we get a Filmation-style She-Ra, only because the 200X version was very close to it already. Just please no rooted hair as the only head.

    I always thought it was kinda lame that She-Ra was Adora with her mask flipped upside-down...Like no one knew would be able to tell
