    Is Pre-Filmation Teela Truly Blonde???

    I know that there are a lot of people who want a Teela that resembles the character from the DC Comics MOTU mini-series(that looks like she has red hair imo)...





    ...and the mini-comics(if you look at her hair in the 3 pictures on the lower left, it definitely looks like she was supposed to have reddish hair)...



    ...who refer to her as, more often than not, "blonde Teela". I thought nothing of this until I looked at some of these Pre-Filmation designs again recently. To me, it appears that Teela isn't really blonde. She's either a light red or at most a strawberry blonde. I don't know if Mattel changed their minds on her hair color after the comics were "colored" but before the toy was released or if there was just a gap in communication between the toy company & whoever worked on the comics. So I'm curious...

    It's a lady's perogative to change her mind...as well as her hair color. Obviously she dyes.

    Not to put too fine or urbane a point upon it, but the only true way to determine the real color of the drapes is to check the carpet...

    O don't care if she's blonde or Strawberry blonde, I just want a DC Bikini Teela!

    LOL! I guess that yet another excuse for a head pack...
    If they DO make DC Bikini Teela, I hope they release the head that they didn't color in a future head pack.

    I'm not trying to be offensive to any guy who finds this stereotype untrue, but I was always "taught" that only little girls liked unicorns.

    I'm a grown manly man, and I love unicorns.

    Especially with biscuits and gravy.

    Same here! But I hope Mattel make a proper lower half and not that makeshift hips thing that the current MOTUC Teela has. I also don't want her bikini to be sculpted or moulded to her but something that they've designed to fit over her body, so that, in theory, it could be removable!

    Maybe, Eternia has hair dye too! Besides, we do not want people to confuse her with Adora! She looks hot either way! Better question: Why is Adam/He-Man waiting? Is he waiting for the ruffie to kick in with her?

    Now, back to more important things! Does Skeletor dye his skull or wear make-up? (His facial colors change often with each figure. Skeletor in drag?)

    If they make a blonde Teela, she shoould be strawberry blonde, think Marvel's Crystal or Dazzler. I don't want her to be She-Ra blonde, it should be more red toned.

    She's Blonde! At least that's how she looked to me in the DC comics.

    I voted light shade of red.

    Because she clearly was being depicted as a blonde. But Teela is a Redhead. That's just the facts. Just as He-Man wasnt always Adam, but now forever he will be, Teela is forever a reahead.

    If you want to say that Teela blonde is Teela-Na, later to become the sorceress, then yeah, I love it, and make her blonde, whatever.

    But Teela is a ginger.

    I'm not saying dont make the figure, I just hope if they make a MOTUC Blonde Teela, it's either in a TRU 2 Pack DCUvsMOTUC, or as another character that existed in Oo-Lar's time.

    Because Teela is a redhead.

    Actually her hair changed from blonde to strawberry blonde to red all the time, sometimes within the same comic...

    But my personal favorite mini-comic teela is strawberry blonde shoulder length hair.
    My MOTUC top 10 wants (POST NYTF 2014):

    She's blonde. Having said that, I'll buy as many versions as they make, and with whatever hair color they decide to slap onto her!

    What I wonder is, within the Classic bio-Canon, is theis Teela'Na? We can assume that the He-Man fighting Skeletor in the first few minicomics is in fact Oo-Lar, Duncan is MAA, Stratos is Stratos (except maybe in that one first appearance of his, in which he is seen among the villains outside Grayskull, in his earliest orange/caucasian/whatever look). I am thinking that this Teela is Teela'Na, before she becomes the Sorceress (which sort of happens in King of Castle Grayskull, anyhow, as the castles's spirit invites her and then Skeletor tries to deceive her.)

    I'd love a figure of Teela'Na like this. (Perhaps she truly is a blonde, and Teela's hair was magically changed to red to dissuade immediate comparisons as she agedand began looking more and more like the Sorceress...When Teela takes her place, she then undoes the glamour.)
    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
