    I love the Goddess!

    Teela is the clone of Goddess not Sorceress ... I don't care what stoopid bio-story claims!

    I love everything about my existing Goddess figure!

    Mattel should bring her back absolutely!

    I think somebody should ask if the Goddess will be reissued in the WTFWTK thread.

    I already used my question for this month...

    Not needed. I made a custom out of Lime Jell-O. I have a MOTUC shelf in my fridge where He-man and the gang have joined her.

    Translucent Orko vs. Translucent Goddess

    So, I got around to inspecting the translucent SDCC Orko--and it appears (at least so far) that this guy is less brittle than the Goddess. Anyone else agree? If this is the case, there really is no excuse for Matty to not re-release the Goddess as is.

    The Goddess was a failure. Nobody bought her. Took her ages to sell out. Matty is not going down that route.

    Not true. A bunch of people bought here. I bought her second hand and left her MOC and then sold her.

    That remains to be seen as far as whether or not this thread is being taken into account--lots of unhappy folks here:

    I bought her, left her in her package to remain there forever. As will Orko. So yea, a few people did buy her.

    I left mine in the package. She was the only figure I bought one of. I wish they'd include her spear in a weapon pack.

    No one seems to consider the reasons why she didn't sell as quickly


    -She was a strict Teela repaint. Teela had been releases two months prior, and came with the Snake Armor head. Many people bought two (or more) Teela's with the intention of displaying a second as The Goddess. They didn't need the green version. This was bad planning on Mattel's part (shocker).

    -She was sold in December with King Randor. She was not only competing with a regular monthly figure, but also with people being on vacation for the holidays, people spending money on other holiday items for other people, etc.

    -She wasn't promoted at ALL. She didn't have an ad in Toyfare.

    -She was sold when far less people were collecting the line. The difference between the amount of people collecting MOTUC in Dec 2009 and the amount doing so even just a few months later is probably huge.

    I'd also suggest that her "languishing" on the site for 13 days had something to do with people assuming she was sold out if they happened to remember they'd forgotten to order a day or two later. Would you have bothered to visit Mattycollector after the first day of sale, if you'd forgotten to order any of the bonus items? I probably wouldn't think it worth the time

    It's a safer bet to sell her in a DC pack... with RED armor and RED shield. That way, people can buy her to replace the figure that broke, use the broken figure's armor and shield, and use the red armor on Teela. OR people can buy it JUST for the armor (hey, a LOT of collectors bought the Skeletor 2-pack just for the yellow energy blade). OR they can buy it because they never had the chance to buy the Goddess in the first place, as they came to the brand later.

    She still sold out, in 13 days no less, which is an impressive feat for such an obscure character.

    I remember how happy Mattel was when He-Man sold out in 6 weeks. How times change - they've recently said that the DC Universe boxsets won't be sold on Matty anymore, despite Wave 13 selling out in 1 day.

    Yes, now if an item lasts more than a few hours it's considered a failure in Mattel's eyes.

    I would love to handle an SDCC Orko to find out whether or not he is brittle. Can someone out there...perhaps Pixel Dan...let us know how "brittle" Orko seems to be if he is or not?

    -Also Reissue Skelly was on sale on Goddess and Randor day... The moment Mr. Bonehead sold out Matty's MOTUC sales began to slow down.

    -Didn't we hear news of the hyper breakability of the Goddess 2-5 days after Last December's Matty Day?

    I'm in for a Goddess reissue that is not hyperbreakable.
    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.

    IF she gets rereleased she should be exactly like the first issue right down to the brittle shattering plastic. It`s not fair that you guys complain and us MOC collectors have to get a reissue that`s different to keep a complete collection, although I do doubt very much she will get a re release. Paint a Teela green and presto you have the Goddess re release without the translucent plastic

    You have my vote on a "re-tooled" goddess with the spcifications listed in the first post. I feel that would be an excellent figure.

    We definitely need a new non-breakable Goddess.
    That said, I'm fine with the figure as is, meaning I don't need a brand new sculpt of her or new accessories.
    All I'd like is The Goddess as she is now in solid plastic.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    Here, here! I'm down with this.

    My Goddess hasn't broken...yet. But I would buy a non-fragile, non-translucent version.

    Luckily, my GG's legs haven't busted yet, but her neck crumbled to pieces.
    Horrible, horrible quality plastic.

    I was against translucent over the awesome painted 4H version we were shown at SDCC from the beginning.
    But I hate being proven right in THAT way.

    So absolutely, I would support a new release of GG, so she's given the proper care, attention, and respect that IMO she is due.
    A bonus head sculpt would be great, and a slightly revised deco to further differentiate from Teela wouldn't hurt either.

    I'm actually trying something like that on mine.

    I am all for a new Goddess figure. She needs to be redone with better materials as many of of loose collectors are now without ours. What good is a figure if it can't even be displayed?

    I didn't get her the first time around and after hearing the Horror Stories of the First release I am happy that I didn't buy one. Still, I would love a chance to own one that won't Shatter if you look at her funny.

    I'm in for a retool. I am not happy about the cheap quality of the original release. I still think she should have her plastic improved and be re released free to those that have broken Goddess figures. That will never happen though so at least a retool would be nice. I already purchased a replacement for mine but I refuse to take her out of the package for fear of breaking her again.
