    Underwater Armor Teela support & appreciation thread

    Toyguru has confirmed Underwater Armor Teela from the MYP 2nd series episode # 34 "Second Skin" is a potential A-list variant for Teela in MOTUC (joining the ranks of fan demanded Blonde Teela and Bikini Teela).

    If TEELA is an A-LIST character ...

    You said that a Teela's blond version would be a great way for a refresh ...
    ( Just speculation from me that she's surely a MOTUC VS DC one ... ) .

    But here is my question :

    If TEELA is an A-list character , what are the chances to see a refresh of her with her skin repainted , let's say " SNAKE-LIKE " ?... Smiler

    The MOTUC Teela is beautiful , i dream to see her in snake skin .

    Toyguru:
    Like Blonde Teela, Bikini Teela, or Underwater Armor Teela, Snake Teela is also a great variant idea for her. But nothing to announce right now.
    This thread is to guage the level of fan support for this cool variant at some stage down the track.

    In Second Skin, there were 4 Masters who wore Underwater Armor: Teela, He-Man, Mekaneck and Man-At-Arms. Man-At-Arms designed the armor using DNA from shed snakeman skin.

    Based off the MYP toon, there are potentially 2 Underwater Armor figures that could be made:

    - Underwater Armor Teela (UA female buck with Teela head)

    - Underwater Armor Male (the Armor released designed around a standard male buck, allowing head swapping to set up figure of choice in the armor (i.e. put He-Man's head on and you have UA He-Man, etc). This is a perfect potential army builder.

    Underwater Armor Teela could come with a second damaged helmet ... given the helmet's glass seemed easy to smash in the toon.

    Second Skin was a pretty cool episode. It introduced us to Snake Carnivus, Snake Teela, Snake Man-At-Arms and Snake Mekaneck (the most visually appealling of all the snake change heroic warriors).

    I must admit, I want strawberry blonde Bikini Teela as my priority Teela variant, but I'd certainly be pretty happy to receive Underwater Armor Teela (and Snake Teela) as part of MOTUC.

    What say the fans?

    That's not the Underwater Armor I was thinking of MGM

    The Second Skin armor is essentially white and looks the same on all the men such that basically only the head is different (which is clearly different to the armor shown which is essentially designed for MAA only).

    The Underwater Armor you have there I think is from the ep where MAA gets eaten by the Corodite infected giant flying fish?

    FLitzi put a pic of the UA armor I'm talking about in the Toyguru answers thread.

    I´m appreciating any variants that aren´t He-man or Skeletor.

    I like those but there are plenty so let´s see someone else in a different outfit for a change and as i remember they all looked great in that underwater armor!

    If the line was a standard in the stores toyline, I would have no problem with it. However, this is a line that has 1-2 figures a month, and there are way too many characters out there for us to be given trashy variants over characters we have yet to see. Until we get Sy-Klone, Kobra Khan, Man-E-Faces, Clawful, Rattlor, Mekaneck, Ramman, Panthor, Leech, Evilseed, Icer, Mantenna, Cattra, Sorceress, etc, underwater, ice armor, etc, variants do not belong in this line!!!

    I'd rather have a 2002 Teela instead. This isn't GI Joe.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    I'll take any other variant first. Underwater anything in MOTU takes a backseat to all the other options available. I'll take Blonde Teela (with the dress that covers her hips) anyday.

    I think we'll see blonde mini-comic Teela in the TRU 2 packs, so I hope we get Underwater Teela and DC Bikini Teela as future variants, Bikini Teela is my favorite but I'd be willing to wait a bit until the four horsemen master the 2-piece female buck I hope they're working on, so bring on underwater armor Teela

    Bring on Underwater Armor Teela!!!

    Um, guys... I'm positive he was joking in the sense that he was talking about any possible variant. He could have just as easily said Basketball Teela. I doubt they'd ever make this underwater Teela. And just to be clear, they should not. Nobody would buy her (why do we all of a sudden want crappy variants again????)

    But if you look at the picture above if they gave us and 'Underwater Armor' Teela, visually speaking, it would get us one step closer to the NA Sorceress from the Mini Comics and Space Suit Marlena.

    Hell's yeah!

    I love variants of anyone and wil buy them all as hapilly as I would a unique figure like Stinkor, Glimmer, or Songster (yes, Songster!).

    The haters can just keep on hatin'.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Okay, I was leaning to the "too GI Joe" side of this, but now I agree--I want them to make it! Bring on NA mini comic Sorceress! They could also make 87 movie Teela if they'd just get those rights secured!

    We have been told repeatedly we will get A-list variants that won't take slots from those other characters.

    Next we'll get Snake armor Skakeskin DNA Scuba gear He-Man.
    Just make a removable armor that fits on most MOTUC styled figures like they did in 1987...

    I think once more of the line is out that this would be an ok variant. Would fit well with the NA Guardians I think....

    Quite. And doubly so when it comes to He-Men - after HM, Faker, Wun-Dar, TRU HM, BAHM, vintage Adam and PreterniaHM; it's time to leave He-Men and clones thereof in the realm of "reissues only" until 2013....

    [Yes, I left out Cona-- sorry, "Vikor", on purpose, since he at least bears no particular resemblance to the standard HM]

    Well ... it could be a joke. OR it could be a hint!

    At least 4 females in 2011, probably at least one an A-list variant. My money is on caucasian/200x Evil Lyn but with Toyguru you just never know!

    I agree. There are definitely parts re-use opportunities with this variant.

    As Josh noted, variants do belong in this line (i.e. BA He-Man and Skeletor). 4 variants per year in fact.

    Variants don't take slots from new regular figures.

    I'd be happy with an MOTUC update of the old Scubattack armor but the swapping heads feature of MOTUC makes it just as likely we'd get a Underwater Armor 'figure' or variant (possibly both a male and female [ie. Teela] version) which folk could swap heads onto. An easy army builder if you wanted to buy several and swap in a MAA, He-Man, Mekaneck and Fisto head to set up a (one sided) battle scene against Mer-Man.

    I was always disappointed that with all of the variants we received in the 200X line, the Underwater Armor MAA wasn't one of them. He used UA in 2 of the episodes, very prominently. I fully support the ideas presented in this thread and would love this Teela variant, absolutely!!

    Hi gang, just a reminder!

    It seems that variants for A-list characters bring up strong opinions for and against. Lets all do our best to keep this discussion respectful and constructive.
