    How does MOTUC She-ra compare to her other versions?

    It's that time again! Whether you prefer the vintage or 200X with their hair to comb, the unique look of the Toothbrush She-ra, or the articulation of the MOTUC one, who is your favorite?

    It's like a She-Ra GI JOE figure!


    As for my favorite, it's a tie between MOTUC She-Ra and vinage Starburst She-Ra.

    If I had to rank my top 3 picks it would go:

    1. MOTUC She-Ra
    2. Vintage She-Ra
    3. Vintage Star Burst She-ra

    The worst one: 200x She-Ra (glad I got one and she's okay but next to the others she isn't anywhere near their league, the styling is just really off)
    Good trades with: Cammor

    I got her off of EBAY 4 years ago. She came packaged with a mini He-man and a placemat with Snake Mountain in a jungle scene on it.

    Look at the belt on that one in the back by the pink building, or whatever it is. See how her belt dips in a low "v"? And the belt's narrower? I like that.

    But 200x is my fave, except for the doll hair. I hate rooted hair. I cut Zanzibar's topknot off back in the GI Joe days!

    The one in the back is the She-ra that comes with the toothbrush castle she is on. Unlike the He-man figure that came with his toothbrush holder that looks like he came from the same 80's basic mold, the She-ra toothbrush figure is a unique sculpt of her own.

    I think MOTUC She-Ra's skirt should have been like the toothbrush holder's.

    Anyway, I think the best She-Ra is Bubble Power She-Ra. She looks regal and like a warrior because of her armour and her Wonder Woman/Xena-like sharp, pointed skirt. She also looks beautiful and retains her femininity while still looking powerful and a force to recon with:

    Thanks. I was really lucky to get her. I got the figure in a random lot of She-Ra figures, and her clothes in two separate lots. I actually have two other extra outfits, but still only one BP She-Ra. I really need to post all the stuff I have for sale and trade again.

    Really awesome collection Joseephus!
    I like the MOTUC She-Ra the best, and from the vintage line Starburst She-Ra looks best.
    I always liked the 200X She-Ra, but for some reason she looks like the worst figure of all in the comparison :S

    MY MOTUC WANTS: Gwildor, Rotar, Mermista, Angella, Peekablue, Spinerella, Perfuma, Master Sebrian, Sagitar, Tuskador, Darius, Mara, Kayo, Vizar, Nocturna, Spinwit, Artilla, Saurod, Ninjor, Blast-Attak, Hunga the Harpy, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Twistoid, Dragstor, Imp, Vultak, Multi-Bot, Tung Lashor, Sssqueeeze, Lizorr, Hoove, Critta, Quakke, Butthead, Staghorn

    Is it possible to see a side view of the sword that the "toothbrush holder" She-Ra is holding? Curious to see what that looks like.

    Here is the picture of the "Toothbrush holder" She-ra sword. It definitely looks better than that horrible vintage 80's sword. I also included a close up of a head comparison shot of the She-ra's. I never realized how bad the head sculpt of the 200X She-ra was until now. I even prefer the cute basic look of the 80's face over the 200X one.

    Haha, wow the 200X version is so awful looking. Talk about not aging well. Some of those figures are just awful looking back on them.

    I forgot how ugly the headdresses were on the originals. They are so huge and bulky that they really detract from what is supposed to be She-Ra's beauty. Not to mention the body armor looks nothing like the way she is supposed to look.

    My top 3 favorites would be:

    Classics
    2002 version (although this version always looked like a valkyrie to me instead of She-Ra)
    The one in the middle that does not look like it moves
    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.

    Not to rain on anyone parade and I know there are tons of She-Ra fans out there, but am I the only one who thinks the look on the MOTUC She-Ra face looks like a blow up doll?

    She has a "Derrrrrp..." look on her face.
    Ehhh! Where's my beer!?!?

    I'll have to take your word for it. I've been fortunate enough in life to never need a blow up doll.

    It's interesting to see that the toothbrush holder had details sculpted onto her bracelet. It looks like they repeated the symbol on her costume on the bracelets.

    Well, "favorite" is to strong of a word for me when it comes to She-Ra but to me the incarnation in the MOTUC version.

    I don't know about that. She looks like MOTUC Adora to me. Some of those older She-Ra figures look more like blow up dolls like those ones in the background in the picture in the original post.
