    Adora, female figures, POP ... I'm converted!

    I have got to say that the Adora figure is really, really really cool. It is awesome, beautiful, original, etc. I never thought I would say that.

    I want to apologize to POP fans if my former negative views on POP and its inclusion in MotUC ever offended you. I have totally changed my mind. If future POP figures look anything like Adora, I want them. From this point on, bring em' on!

    I'm actually really excited for She-Ra now. She is going to be killer. Hats off to the 4H for creating a perfect Adora. She's rad!

    Any other converts out there ... ?

    Great to hear! Seeing pics of Adora from SDCC is what got me to buy a subscription for 2010 - there was no way I wanted to miss her! I can't wait to see what She-Ra and the other PoP girls look like... I'm hoping they're all just as amazing.

    AWESOME!!!

    This is what I hoped would happen. I hoped that when people started buying the 4H's versions of these characters, that many would be converted. They really are cool characters.

    I'm also excited to see how the old POP toys will be reconceived and processed as MOTU type figures

    I hope this spills over to a lot of the PoP nay-sayers.

    I can't wait to see other PoP characters. I hope they get mixed pretty well into the lineup.

    I actually hope I like Optikk, too, not being a NA fan.

    FANTASTIC, G-Man!

    What a nice thing to say! I think both POP & MOTU can live together under the MOTUC roof! MOTUC is all about that: UNION!

    I'm really glad we are together on this!

    Thank's a lot!

    I do have a strong feeling people who do not like PoP or NA are going to be very pleasantly surprised when they get their hands on these figures. I'm sure it will change at least a dozen minds.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    I was also hesitant about Adora, but I'm very happy with her now that she's with the rest of my collection. I'm still unsure about some of the other POP characters, but am excited to see what the 4H do with them! I wouldn't say I'm converted yet, but I'm certainly pleased with Adora!
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    Well said G-Man, it's fantastic to see that you have seen the light on some of the POP characters and your were able to come here and share your experience of buying and now owning Adora, because there are many others out there who have done the same thing and who's attitudes are probably starting to change. Well done for standing up and being counted by saying you will give POP a chance!

    That's great G-Man! Welcome to the Great Rebellion!

    Adora actually has the most plain outfit of all the POP characters and if she already looks so good, just imagine how She-Ra and the other POP figures will look. Frosta, Catra, Netossa... I can't wait!

    I grew up with MOTU and POP and never liked NA. What your experiencing with POP is happening to me with NA. I really LOVE Optikk, he's got me watching the NA cartoon for the first time and I'm very curious and excited for the other upcoming figures. I think that is what I like most about this line, how so many different fans discover new parts of the big MOTU universe through the MOTUC line.

    It's really cool to read about these collectors who are changing their minds about Adora, and POP in general.

    I think alot of the anti-POP sentiment is the definite gender line divide the two storylines had in the 80's, although many of my fellow guy friends watched POP with me back then.

    Adora is the plainest dressed female character in POP. There are some real vixens in the line, and I think some of these boys are going to start feeling differently when the 4H do some further revealing!

    I am of the same camp. Didn't care much for PoP or NA, but I am sooooooo excited to see them both in MOTUC. Strangely, I might even be more excited to see them over the vintage MOTU figures. weird.

    Me, too. It's a big focus for me and that used to not be where my head was with the line.

    I really love the human characters. The women's inclusion brings an exciting, dramatic element to the collection. With them, it's not just a bunch of muscleheads, who versus who. Storylines open up more, for me at least!

    IMO I think this line needs POP to add more women into MOTU, we are almost done as Sorceress is really the only one left. Frosta and Angella are probably my most wanted and will really do wonders for the female buck. Frosta hopefully will have a frayed skirt like her cape. Angella's wing alone are worth the price of admission, granted we've already seen them with DCUC's Hawkman and Hawkgirl.

    The power of The 4H is amazing... I hope that we get more stories like this.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.
