    The Look of PoP in MOTUC...It's Up to the Four Horsemen!

    Toyguru just answered my question about what PoP will look like in MOTUC. There was confusion because in the past we were told it would solely be based on the vintage toys and NOT the Styleguide...then we got Adora and She-Ra that are straight FROM the Styleguide.

    Anyhow, here's the new official answer:

    If a toy had a vintage version, the colors will be based on the toy's colors. As for the exact sculpt, that will likely be a blend of the style guide and the vintage toy based on the preference of the Horsemen.
    So...yay for Styleguide Catra (probably). Now I have to beg the Horsemen for toy versions of everyone else!

    I know, right?

    The biggest thing to stress is...say they look EXACTLY like the Styleguide, the colours should still be BRIGHT and VIBRANT like the toys!

    Hence "based on toy's colours."

    Well, they're probably the best choice for that since they are the Masters of sculpting and are obviously huge fan favorites around here. Couldn't be in better hands.

    for POP characters i'm hoping for 'as close to cartoon accurate' as possible. to me the vintage toys looked like total garbage, and I hope they stay as far away from those designs as possible.

    I'm so grateful we have a She-ra that looks like She-ra
    & less like the hideous piece of crap the vintage toy was. sorry but that's how they looked (and still look) to me.

    go with the styleguide and don't touch the vintage toy designs with a 50 foot pole. i still can't believe
    how ridiculous that mardi gras mask looks on She-ra. thank goodness
    they gave us the filmation head, or I might never have had my she-ra on display.

    I want Style Guide versions of all the POP characters first, but if they want to give us bonus versions that resemble the original releases since it would be a great re-use of parts and easy money maker.

    Agreed. The FH showed us that they love MOTU just as much as we do when they introduced the 200X figures. They had nostalgic elements mixed with cutting-edge sculpts that worked for both the long-time-fans as well as the newest ones.

    Now with MOTUC, we are treated to the ideal versions of our favorite characters. In some cases I feel the FH are not just pleasing the fans and collectors, but they are doing it for themselves as well!

    Definitely!

    That's where we as MOTU fans are very spoiled. We have the 4 Horsemen producing gems each and every time!

    Thank you so much for starting this thread! Finally this is being addressed. Ive been annoyed ever since She-ra was revealed, And Ive had visions of pastel Adora costumes on all POP ever since!!

    ha!

    I just want a pure direct update of the classic figures first and then, eventually, a pure update of the style guide looks. Is that too much to ask?

    This clarification isn't helping me to be less confused.

    Ditto! Am not impressed that they are trying every which way to do Cartoon-esque POP. All I want is to see the 4H tackle a straight POP Vintage figure update!

    Just to prove to the anti POP Brigade that not only are the classic designs brilliant but that the POP characters are just as valid and important as MOTUV.

    I am Definitely TEAM POP!

    I personally would like to see a mixture of both the Style Guide and the Vintage figures. Whatever they decide, I hope they model all of the face sculpts/hairdos after the style guide. It give the characters some distinction.

    I'm sure that they will look great either way.

    But She-Ra isn't in her classic toy outfit or colours! So this statement makes no sense. The complete She-Ra figure (except mask tiara and comb axe) are straight from the style guide!

    Though I'm not complaining as I hate the 80's toy versions!!! Any POP not based on the style guide will be a big pass for me!
