    How would Shadow Weaver work as a figure.

    I've been watching my She-Ra DVDs, to learn more about the charactes. I never really whached She-Ra as kid. I like many really want a Shadow Weaver figure, she was the one character that did catch my attention as a kid. But now that I've watched the cartoon more closely I was wondering how Matty would make her work as a figure. Her sleeves drap down and attach to each other in the back. How would that work in figure form? They only way I can think of would be with cloth but that would not fit with the rest of the figures in MOTUC. Do you think they would just make he sleeves seperate? Then how would they make them look good when her arms are both raised and by her side. There seems to be a lot of design issues the 4H would have to work out. I have no doubt that they could make her look great, and I hope they get the chance too. What does everyone else think?

    Maybe they'd do big sleeves on her arms, something like this...

    The rest maybe done like a cape?
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    Like Emiliano's design. I would like wire lining in the sharp "teeth" looking outline:

    Emiliano's design looks amazing! However I would like her skirt to be one solid piece. I don't care about leg articulation for her as I'd rather have her look perfect.

    The same "problem" will have Sorceress (Filmation) with her winged dress.

    I'd be ok if she came out as almost a staction just so she looks fantastic. Articulation with her is not an issue for me in any way, but I'm sure for some people it will be.

    I don't know...I think I'd like the ability to have her sit. She was always sitting in a Horde ship beside Hordak and I *think* she has a throne at Horror Hall.

    Actually, Emiliano has an awesome design to solve that problem as well!:

    Shadow Weaver in MOTUC - Official Discussion

    When / if Mattel obtain the rights to make a Shadow Weaver, what accessories should she come with?

    We know MOTUC figures are meant to be packed with 2 accessories but is there anything that would suit Shadow Weaver? I cannot see the Weaver wielding a POP shield and comb-axe. Nor can I imagine her with the Horde crossbow.

    My guess is to pack her with an Imp figure , plus a spell book.

    Maybe a "Weaver un-masked" 2nd head?
    A wand or a staff? crystal ball? cauldron? Crystal Castle reliquary?

    What accessory should be packed with the Weaver?

    I'd say the Dark Gem would be a natural accessory to include. I don't know if Marzo's amulet is sculpted onto his hand or a separate piece, but that'd be an easy thing to reuse if it's not part of his hand.

    I'd love a book of spells, Imp, and a staff with her vulture/funky bird.

    A swirl of transparent plastic smoke and maybe a book of spells.

    Any type of plastic energy effects would be nice. Japan's been doing that for years.

    A swirl of smoke would make an EXCELLENT base! I'd like her to come with a book, but more like the Book of Shadows from "Charmed", where it sits on its own stand. I agree 100% about Imp! Maybe just some wrist-attachable (a la Star Wars "force" effects) magic effects...hell, they can pack her with a firm-packed bale of horse "presents", and you know we'd all be lining up to buy her.

    It is a separate piece, and he has a place on the back of his belt to store it.

    I like the idea of including a gemstone for SW to hold, but it deserves to be a new sculpt.

    I'd love replacement hands that are spell casting lightining bolts, or something like that!

    Weapon? Invent her a staff. Those are popular with many of the trendiest of villains.

    I love the concept of giving SW a wand, but I don't think she should be overly accessorized, especially since that doesn't seem to be the way she was portrayed.

    A very distinctive wand would be great, along with a spell book, and maybe the vulture, and that would be great.

    I know what I'd want: a lengthy comic starring Ms Weaver, and it should be by Val & Emiliano.
    Still remembers we paid excessive shipping on Battleground Teela. Is confident Matty will resolve the issue and make it right for us.

    The staff from "The caregiver", orkos spell book (reuse), Shadow coils for hands, floating base, and styrax and perch. Perfect accessories for this character and all have revelence to her past, I love it

    She isn't going to cost a huge amount. She will likely use the Marlena buck, with a new dress and cape/shawl (the armor/skirts/dresses, etc. Are FAR cheaper to tool and produce than buck pieces or heads for some reason).

    They could afford:

    Interchangeable hands (both sides); book of spells (at worst, reuse the Orko one), mist coils, and Styrax.

    They NEED to go all out on this figure. It's the first time she's being made, AND she's likely the most requested MOTU figure EVER.

    If Mattel can do THIS in Batman Legacy Wave 2 and package Batman with Bat-Mite...



    ...then they should be able to package Imp with Shadow Weaver, assuming that Weaver doesn't come with anything else.

    I want both of her hands to be open so I'm not bothered about a wand. Interchangeable hands would be nice for those that want them but I wont be upset if they save the tooling dollars for better accessories.

    Styrax with perch would be amazing. A Spell book with stand would also be very nice. Maybe one large stand that could hold the book but also had a perch for Styrax?

    Imp could be saved for another figure...filmation Hordak is a good idea or a less popular horde member. He could even come packaged with Kowl and/or Loo-Kee.
