    ReTooled Goddess?

    With so many problems with the Goddess I think she needs retooled, not just reissued especially since Toyguru stated that the caucasian goddess is NOT the sorceress or Teela in a different outfit. They could use the existing Teela/Evil-Lyn mold OR use the mold of the retooled Evil-Lyn. New tooling should include:

    New head (so it's not a teela repaint.)
    new armor (the armor and headpiece should be seperate like in the minicomics.)
    NON-translucent plastic!
    Non-green version?
    Here is what I mean by the armor and headpice being seperate:

    I would be happy with just the Green Goddess reissued in non-translucent plastic. The version we have now is so fragil.

    I agree. I would have brought a non-translucent Goddess, if I had a choice.

    Thirded.

    I was pretty disappointed that the final version wasn't like the prototype.

    And it seems they paid for that deviation pretty badly.

    I didn't mind the idea of the translucent Goddess, but after less then 30 seconds after opening her neck broke, all the complaints about hip breakages, and whatnot, yeah, not really pleased with it.

    I wouldn't mind a redo in solid green. Maybe with a $5 off coupon sent to all those who got her the first time around.

    I'd buy a non translucent Goddess...

    A bit off topic is that a page from The Caverns of Fear from the Golden Books?
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Besides acknowledging there was a defect in the manufacturing process, has Toyguru addressed the problems anywhere else or provided a solution or clarification on a reissue/exchange?

    The translucent limbs weren't the problem though just to be clear something went wrong with the torso particularly the crotch

    You are aware that the female in the picture you posted is Teela, not the goddess, right? It says it throughout the whole book.

    I second that. The Goddess never was, or ever will be Sharella to me. Two completely different characters.

    Yes for non-translucent plastic, but my biggest problem with the Goddess / Teela figures is how wonky they are. It's obvious from the front, but jumps up and screams from the back. I don't think they bothered even attempting symmetry with the mold.

    However, I actually like the figures... I bought an extra Teela so I could have both Teela the warrior woman and Teela the minicomic sorceress.

    That is just one artist's depiction, these look better:

    I'm aware yes, I wasn't having any luck at the time finding a pic where the armor and headpiece are seperate

    Which is exactly why I wished they would have went with a separate helmet/torso armor!

    The Goddess was scandalously fragile. She was just a defective figure. I can say so because so many fans who bought her had unacceptable problems with her. She's as fragile as glass !

    I'd like to see the Goddess action figure reissued, but NOT in that terrible, brittle, breakable translucent plastic ! And I'd like her to be a QUALITY item, this time ! As it is, I don't even dare getting mine out of my cabinet, because I know that specific figure shatters very easily.

    We know there have been numerous problems with female MOTUC figures. We didn't get any news from new female figures at SDCC. I pray that Mattel and the 4 Horsemen will take that time to redesign a better, cooler female body. And a better quality Goddess.

    Show your support for a re-tooled Goddess!

    Toyguru stated that The green and caucasian Goddess are the same character and that the Grayskull Sorceress is a seperate character from The Goddess. I think The Goddess is far too important of a character to simply be a repaint of Teela, especially with all the problems the current Goddess figure has with breakage. A retooled Goddess should be made with features to differetiate from the Teela figure in the same manner that a retooled Evil-Lyn from the current EvilLyn.

    -non translucent plastic
    -green and caucasian versions
    -helm seperated from armor like in the minicomics for better articulation
    -Staff of Ka and Staff of Elders
    -Armor and weapons same color
    -classic Spell casting hand (reuse for Evil-Lyn)
    -new face(non-Teela)
    -no He-Man items

    Please show your support and ideas, thanks!

    A new Goddess is a MUST !

    The Goddess figures were so defective that no one here can pose them and play with them without fearing their Goddess will shatter like glass !

    In a perfect world, Mattel should even replace the original, defective Goddess figures.


    Personally, I'd like a re-issued Goddess to have these traits :

    - No more transparent and brittle plastic, PLEASE !
    - Green skin
    - Nice, tight articulations
    - No more bobblehead nonsense
    - Soft plastic for the "dress" (the same plastic used for Evil Lyn's garment)

    I agree with Spectror. But still I have to say that I actually liked the translucent plastic - of course the problem is that the legs are fragile. I can't decide what is better. But whatever fix they do I will buy it.

    We have to wait until the next female figure is released. If is true that Catra is delayed because she have a new buck, maybe all the females are going to be redone...

    I support this idea. If they rerelease her I definitely want the brittle plastic issue fixed, but I also LIKE THE TRANSLUCENT PLASTIC and would hate to see that go. Maybe just give her a slight paint redeco with less blue, and a new accessory or two. Then throw in the Staff of Ka (in copper) and I'd be happy. No need for He-Man's harness and weapons, though. We have plenty of those already.

    I'd be okay with translucent plastic, so long as it doesn't have the consistency of peanut brittle. If we can manage that with the above demands, I'd be up for another Goddess.

    I am definitely interested in a retooled Goddess figure that won't brake when you look at or breath on it.
