    It's been said many times Shadow Weaver is not possible by Mattel at this time. Is this art something new that it's possible they've never seen before? If so, that would be interesting.

    Needless to say, looking at this art made me realize, EVEN if she came and was done in this style, she'd have almost no articulation (arms and head only) due to her costume. Not that I would mind, but it never occurred to me before..

    Couple of questions.
    1. Where would you find a set of these cards?
    2.Was there He-man set similar to this one?
    3.Is there an online place to get the larrger images of these same versions?

    I think the Argentinias mixed images from diferent sources to produce that Card game, because I also have a little book with all the original styleguid art and there is no shadow wever in ther nor maddam razz

    But Mattel has stated over and over that they do not have the right to Filmation created characters. This includes Shadow Weaver! I'm sure if there was a way for them to get around this without having to get the rights to MOTU & POP Filmation rights. They would have done so. Where's Emiliano? The man with the knowledge of these things?

    1) Argentina as mentioned. Got mine off eBay a while back.

    2) There are 2 sets of He-man MOTU card game like this. Unfortunatley it's lacking in the art department. The artworks that's in the card looks like it was rushly made, but it's nice to have anyways.

    3) No idea.

    But anyhow, I agree with you Eurorko.

    Granita was in the mini comics, as I can remember.

    To this thread,
    It's a regularly asked question about Shadow Weaver. I hope they'll manage it now, to make it possible, to have some iconic characters from Filmation.
    Doing Shadow Weaver would be awesome but wouldn't be so bashed cause of her lack of legs. and would mostly be a statue. with upper body articulation

    I don't think anyone is trying to "push" a Shadow Weaver figure, I think fans are trying to figure out if one is possible and Mattel just didn't know about it. I see nothing wrong with that, what's our alternative? To give up? To sit on our hands and do nothing?

    No.

    I'm sorry but I can't do that. No one is trying be sneaky, were just trying to expand the brand we love and to be told not to because it's a closed case isn't something that sits well with me. Should we stop trying to cure an incurable disease because it's hard?

    No.

    It's passion and there's nothing that's more infuriating than to be told it's an open and shut case. That's it. Period. End of story, so stop trying.

    That kind of attitude isn't the catalyst for progress.

    I'd be perfectly fine with a Shadow Weaver without articulation. I just want the figure so bad it's killing me.

    I think the Shadow Weaver and Madame Razz and Twigget images are from a different source than the Mattel Style Guide. The art style is different for those than the rest of the Style Guide, and Swift Wind is the Filmation version in the Shadow Weaver card, and the colors are completely inconsistent with the colors Swift Wind is depicted in multiple times in the other cards.

    A quick question while we're on the topic of POP/MOTUC.

    Would they be able to produce a Catra figure with her panther alter ego packaged as an accessory? I'm guessing the cat image is property of Filmation?

    Yes it is.

    Those images are from cards made in Argentina. I don't believe the images of Shadow Weaver, Madame Razz and Broom and the Twigetts are in the Styleguide.

    There may be more licensing kits/Styleguides not online, but they are not in this:

    I would love all the characters if they are possible though!

    Well I do love Shadow Weaver, so here's hoping this helps us get her. Based on previous conversations I somehow doubt it. But I'm still keeping my fingers crossed!
