    Official Sweet Bee Thread

    I wonder if she's on the list. I DO NOT want to start a rumor, this is MERELY AN OBSERVATION.

    He used her has an example for a thread here and he used her as an example for a different thread on Matty's forums.

    Just starting to wonder....

    I think we should not try to read that much into everything he says.

    But, in any event, I rather take it that she is NOT on the cards. In the context where she has been mentioned it rather looks like a "insert name of character that is less likely to make it into the line here". That's how I took it. It's up to interpretation really. Would be so cool if they released Sweet Bee soon.

    I'll take a Sweet Bee!

    To be honest, she's not that far a stretch as far as guesses go. She's got kind of a perfect mixture of obscure and important, which has been what MOTUC is like lately. She's a POP character which is now in the line. Her parts are easily shared with other/future figures (She has Catra's body with Double Trouble's gauntlets and boots), and she's a love/crush interest of He-Man. She's economical and interesting are far as choices go.

    I think he's onto those of us who have been all up in their trademarks business and he's just throwing that name out there because it was on the latest list of them.

    The Official Sweet Bee Thread!

    I can't bee-lieve (lol) there isn't a Sweet Bee thread yet!

    Anyway, Sweet Bee was my first action figure EVER (whom I was told was She-Ra when I was 4) and holds a special place in my heart, so I thought I'd make a discussion thread for her! She's also been trademarked for quite a while, so there's a good possibility we could see her this year or next year!

    Most of her designs are similar, but one thing I PRAY the Four Horsemen keep are her reversible wings! They're pink (like Filmation) or flip to become sparkly yellow (which is kind of like a pollen attack, which is neat).

    PICTURES!

    Style Guide:

    I believe there is a black haired, black wearing Sweet Bee from a colouring book...but I can't find the picture online anymore.

    I'm thinkin she needs to be Filmation or Style Guide. I don't really llike the curly hair and I don't how they'd do that the way they are doing the hair anyways.

    I can't decide between those. Filmation is more recognizable and memorable cuz of her relationship with He-Man, but Style Guide may look a bit better as an action figure. I dunno...

    You can blame Filmation for that. It's definitely the reason why I'm a PoP fan.

    I'm pro toy! I think everyone knows that about me, by now.

    No matter what they decide to do, I think she needs:

    - Reversible wings (pink on one shiny, shiny/sparkly yellow gold on the other, like the toy and Filmation...the pink side, at least).
    - Blonde, curly haired head with toy head band (sculpted like the first fan art I posted. I've seen sculpted curly hair. )
    - Wavy, darker hair (Filmation)

    For the outfit, I want the toy, obviously, but would be okay with Filmation because it's nearly identical to her mini-comic appearances! I'm not a fan of the drab, mono-chromatic Style Guide outfit. It's like black and white but using shades of yellow!

    I was always thrown by that picture of Sweet Bee in the Style Guide. She never appears in ANY media looking like that!

    EDIT:

    I forgot to mention that the pink side of her wings glow-in-the-dark!

    I'm all for Sweet Bee. I think she'll be a great addition to the line. The Style Guide version isn't bad, but I think I prefer the toy version on this one. Perhaps we'll get both or a combination of them.

    As much as Im a 'Toy' Version Fan, I really think that Sweet Bee is one of the Characters that would benefit From a hybrid Design ala Bow!

    I think Curls would work well, to set her apart from the other figures, and I think the Toys Boot/Strap design is really necessary to avoid another Bland Boot design. The Collar is needed as is the Head dress, but I far prefer Emilianos 'Organic' design.

    And I would like a more Organic sculpt of the outfit and Bodice.

    but whatever Really, cos Sweet Bee is -Unlike Catra and She Ra- Very similar in all her Media, so its all good.

    But I do agree with DarkSpectre, The Style guide version is just plain Dull color wise! Yawn!

    Also Just curious, do we see her as an Insect woman Or just a chick in a Bee dress with wings? Cos I think she needs to be solidly one or the other!

    Oh, I forgot to post this one picture Emiliano did for the Special Edition of Secret of the Sword. If all the PoP ladies looked exactly like these ones do, I would be happy*.

    *with a toy coloured variant of Castaspella and Kowl and a Filmation variant of Angella.

    Because, depending on how you look at it, it's a collection of Amazons your parents wouldn't have dared buy you or it's the camp. I was pretty lucky, being a girl and all, don't think I had Sweet Bee (I know for sure I had Angella, Swift Wind, the dress up set, She-Ra and Frosta- who was still around when I was wearing out April O'Neil, the sole TMNT figure that didn't survive my childhood) but she's so cute! I like getting new figures each month but it's the girls I really look forward to, lol.

    I think guys liking the POP CHARACTERS is no different than men reading Power Girl, She-Hulk, Wonder Woman, Black Widow, Red Sonja, Catwoman, Tarot or Cavewoman or watching Xena or the Sarah Connor Chronicles. That's the problem with POP and NA--people judge those characters based on their OLD toys, not the awesome toys that they are sure to get from this toyline.

    Some Sweet Bee art from my hard drive.

    This is one of my favorite PoP characters actually. Second to Frosta from the figure that were released in the vintage line. I think of Sweet Bee as a warrior of her race. I'd like to see her with a sword and blaster like BG Teela. As well as her space helmet. A Bee lady from space that kicks serious butt. Even though she is being captured in three of the pictures below and fainting in another...

    The first two images are of her in her space suit. One from Filmation and one says Aosgood 2006.





    The next two were from a user I haven't seen on in a while. And this is terrible but I can't remember their user ID Which makes me feel extra dumb since I used to PM them. I believe his real name was Matt. If my memory can be trusted.

    I think they were close friends with the user Beyond_the_Legends. Anyone know who I'm talking about?





    And finally one from Sha and the one with Modulok is from Buffalo Bill Man

    Plus, I really like that "honey-dipper" weapon idea. It could be made to look and function like a jousting weapon, the likes of the droid guard that General Grievous used in SW.
    200X Power Sword, 200X Toon, 200X Continuity.... Yeah, it's all about 200X!!

    Now...how the heck was there already a Sweet Bee thread from 2010? I seriously searched for Sweet Bee in thread titles and there was no official thread!

    Anyway, I also like the honey dipper idea. It could make a nice staff and the pole could have various honeycomb designs down the side.

    Please...no more comb weapons though! Comb-axe was very cool...comb-whip was too far and fell short.

    Well, I know it was tagged "sweet bee" (and "pop in motuc") before, since I'M the one who tagged it! Maybe you should have tried searching those tags

    [The original title was "Toyguru's been mentioning Sweet Bee a few times recently..." I also note you didn't credit me for the comparison micros I did...]

    Oh...I saw that title. I didn't think it was an official thread. Sorry about not mentioning yu for the micros. I didn't realize you made them. I found them on Google.
