    Honestly? I'm not a fan. If they do that, her story will probably be the following:

    Some random Gar hussy hooked up with the King. She gave birth to a son and was shunned...because she was a hussy. The end.

    Also, it doesn't respect the character or creator. Even though some MOTUC character bios have some really "new" ideas and changes, they all respect the characters' origins and intentions and I would like to see that trend continue.

    Anyway, I don't like that idea either, they should respect the creator's vision for the character.

    Allow me to respond to this question by doing my impression of a man falling off a cliff:


    "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooo!"


    Wait for it...


    Big finish coming...

    I love the idea, the twist of her being Keldor's mother!

    That makes a "cool looking but meh" character way more important and interesting to me!

    If she gets made I reeeeeeeally hope Illumina is revealed to be Keldor's mother!!!

    It wasn't originally planned for the 200x comic story, but I'd be fine with it. This is a different canon, after all.
    The coincidence factor is a common plot device for many stories.

    Anything's possible so I'm alright w/ that. I'm just ecstatic we're getting Illumina. More 200x love.....at least for me she's put into that category.

    The word hussy doesn't get used often enough, so I thank you for using the word hussy twice in one faux-bio.

    Meh, just an idea to get Matty to warm up to her. I like the bio that was on the poll, is that from Emiliano? Also, is she supposed to be "good", "bad", or a sort of free agent? I voted for her because I've always liked the design, especially with her beast. That one great first piece of art of her is infinitely more interesting than any of the other candidates, though many are cool and will hopefully see the light of day.

    Yep, that's what MVCreations had planned for her. The way I read it, Illumina was bad, then repented and is good...but is still very cold (kind of like Hawkgirl in JLU). She's a "free agent" most of the time because she's stuck on the Dark side of the mystic wall for however long it was up for (16 years?). After that, she would have joined the Masters. Kind of like MYP Sorceress (she was cold, but heroic)!

    In response to the poll question, do I want to see Illumina made in the MOTUC line?

    Is the Pope Catholic?

    Does Galactus eat planets?

    Is He-Man muscular?

    Does Captain Kirk chase women?

    Does Darth Vader have a respiratory problem?

    Did I crack up when Hal Jordan tried to use "By the power of Grayskull!" as the oath to activate his power ring in the Green Lantern movie?

    HECK YES I want to see Illumina made as an action figure! When I first saw this character in that ad during the 200X comic book, my first reaction was "WHOA -- who's THIS?" And then everything got shot down before that question could even be answered! This character remains one of the most awesome figure designs of the modern era of the Masters. She absolutely deserves to be rendered in plastic!

    i was thinking *thanks to Darkspecter* IF they did let Illumina win, would you be ok with her in this outfit over Teela's? it would look good on the Shadow Weaver buck. they call call her young Illumina and later on do young Sleetah out of the cringer buck *with new head*

    No. In my opinion it strays too far from the Illumina design. I'd like to see her appear as she is meant to look.

    There's nothing wrong with the Teela tunic and it allows her to stay closer to her actual design. Making her look like Shadow Weaver just doesn't make sense.

    lol there is alot wrong with it...like it's way over used. and she would not look like Shadow she would just have on a white dress like her 80's concept look, they can use Shadows lower arms with the normal arm top or just give her BP She-Ra's arm's other then that all she would need is a new head,cape and belt and the cape and hood can be reused for Evil-Lyn.

    That's just nitpicking. Though if you do honestly have gripes with Teela's tunic other than that, I will listen to them. What's important to me is that it's stylistically more in keeping with Illumina's look than what you propose. Even if they can't give slight alterations to the Teela tunic to more resemble the designs drawn by Emiliano in his MOTUC visions, I would still put up with it because (for me at least) it's important that her design be preserved as much as possible rather than having her changed beyond recognition.

    We don't have the luxury of her in a comic or story beyond an advert in the previous issue to those that got changed and though there is some information on what was planned for her, what her role possibly was, she doesn't exist as a character as yet in MOTU for the most part and her look is all we have. Right now, that is the character (and god only knows how TG would adapt her into the bios).

    Personally wouldn't mind to much if they use Teela's tunic as long as she comes with BG Evil Lyn's cape as well. But obviously any new tooling would be better

    I really really really really don't want another Teela tunic. I want her done right for as hard and as long as her fans have fought for her.

    I would prefer to get her with a new, two-piece outfit (like the comic cover). The one-piece Teela tunic greatly reduces/eliminates articulation in the waist and a bit in the forward movement of the legs. It's also been used on FOUR figures and THREE unique characters. I think it's time the Teela tunic is retired. NONE of the men wear the same outfit. They all have a different top or different loincloth. It's a tad ridiculous so many of the women have to share the ENTIRE outfit. Teela, Evil-Lyn and the Goddess should have been the ONLY characters to use the outfit (since they did in the 80's) and then it should have been retired. Battleground Evil-Lyn should have been the "Cloak and Dagger" Evil-Lyn with the new, two-piece outfit. They stretched the outfit 1 figure too far and now are shooting for 2. FIVE figures with the exact same outfit is too much. 4 new pieces for Illumina (head, weapon, 2 piece outfit) is not too much to ask for. It's actually a whole lot less tooling than most MOTUC figures get.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Oh! I just noticed something. I think the Four Horsemen may have had the same idea I did! During the Illumina Day campaign, I made an image and described how a new female top could be made and the "bra" part could be swapped out to make 200X Evil-Lyn, 200X Sorceress and Illumina.

    Seeing better pics of the Fighting Foe Men lady, they may have had the same idea! (to be fair, the 200X female figures were pretty much made this way).

    She has a very similar top to Illumina (shoulder pads, circle pattern on bra, piping around bra) and has the plug-in chest piece idea! If this top was put on Female Buck 2.0 (Bubble Power She-Ra's buck), the waist is where the BG Teela buck starts to make the hourglass shape. She even has the arms needed for Illumina! Teela + BP She-Ra.

    Illumina would only need a new plug-in bra piece and a skirt now! If they keep it on BG Teela's buck, the bra piece could have the piping that goes down her stomach. It's would be slightly different than Illumina's design, but MUCH closer than just repainting Teela's tunic. No matter what they do, Illumina NEEDS the old style hips! If she has the BG Teela hips, she won't be able to sit on a cat properly.

    Considering she only lost by 27 votes, I think if we make enough noise, we can get Illumina in 2013 anyway.

    So let's make some noise!

    Well there is probably not a another slot open for 2013 (since all the other slots were already planned), but maybe 2014. I really would like to get her.
