She's a great design. I, for one, would love to have her. But if people thought The Goddess would be a tough sell... Illumina is about as obscure. But I think people would still buy her. I'd also love a Battle Cat repaint to be her panther.
I know she only appeared in an ad, but I just adore her character design. She would make an amazing addition, possibly as an .org exclusive ? or 2011's subscription exclusive ? Without the He-Store, perhaps thats just a pipe dream. I'm just curious as to whether anyone else would like to see this ? Or am I just a crazy fan boy wanting what can never be. Val and Emil, your design totally rocks btw. The ad posted in the illuminia discussion thread just became my background.
Her unofficial 200x comic bio from the thread collecting comic info:
Little is known about the blue-skinned warrior named Illumina. It is known, however, that she is a descendant of the Gar refugees that came to Eternia after the destruction of Infinitia and that she was a member of the Guardians of Grayskull (a secret sect devoted to the preservation of Castle Grayskull’s secrets throughout time).
At one point in her life, Illumina was known as one of the strongest proponents of anti-Eternian sentiments amongst her fellow Gar. Accordingly, she was a fierce proponent against efforts to integrate the Eternian and Gar peoples. What remains unknown, however, is what (if any) role Illumina had in the ruination of Captain Miro’s planned union with the mother of Keldor and the subsequent Gar massacre instigated by Count Marzo and other segregationists. Whatever the cause, with age Illumina’s views changed and she eventually sought atonement and repentance past for misdeeds.
At the time when the Mystic Wall was created she was on the Dark Hemisphere of Eternia, which effectively trapped her there. Fortunately, in addition to being a great strategist and possessing formidable fighting skills (especially with melee weapons), she has the power to control light and can even blind her opponents when those other talents are not enough. Prior to being caught on Dark Hemisphere she assisted Dekker in the teaching of Duncan.
Although a heroic force, it has been said that she was very cold blooded. Also, a common misconception is that she is in some way related to Keldor; however, beyond their shared Gar heritage there is no connection between them. Similarly, many believe her mount to be a descendant of the Battle Cats of old, while, in fact, her white-furred companion is an entirely different species that is genetically closer to the blood-thirsty Panthor.
Designs and printed images of her

OK ! Here's another cool character to bring into plastic form !
I agree ! We need Illumina and her tiger !
I've been hoping for an Illumina since this line began, that would prove to me that Mattel are really looking at the WHOLE spectrum of MOTU
I'm not changing my profile picture until we get Geldor in MOTUC (hey, it worked for Mike Bock!)
Definite buy! Even if she was a Teela repaint with a new head
Awesomesauce; I'll take it! We need some new blood in this line at one point. As I've said before, I don't think she needs to be some known character to sell; if she looks cool, I'm sure she'll get bought!

that anyone would likely buy whether or not she's recognizable. I didn't
know about her up until this point and I would gladly buy her. Mattel
should definitely consider making her some sort special release or an
Illumina totally needs a figure. Mattel can even make her a bonus if they dont think she'd sell but I think she'd sell. I like obscure characters.
Wanted: Episode 40 Comic.
Perhaps down the road as a Evil-Lyn/Teela hybrid repaint, along with a Panthor/Battle Cat hybrid repaint.
It seems almost a sure thing if all goes well with the Evil-Lyn release and if we get Panthor as well.
Woh...funky looking Gar lass!!
I don't think we have any other blue women in MOTU, And I love blue skin figures!
Would definately buy her & the cat.
I'd certainly buy her, but i'm not sure she'd be popular enough to be a regular monthly figure.
I think she might be a good choice for an exclusive. Maybe in a 2-pack with her cat.
Who here is knowledgeable on all things ILLUMINA? I don't remember this character, haven't seen all the 200X episodes, and am thinking that those pics are pretty darn awesome. And wow, another terrific use for the Battle Cat buck!
What do we know about Illumina?

It was a character for the 200x comics created by MV Creations if I'm not mistaken...
Por el Poder de Grayskull!!!...
Ya tengo el poder!!
My Feedback thread!!
I'd buy her in a second!! Absolutely!
I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

id like her and love to read her bio!
I've been banned!

My feedback threadhttp://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...or-Brian-Ozone
Then is she fair game to be made into a figure? It seems like I remember Toyguru saying in a Q&A that no "new" characters would get made...
Is she a possibility?

Cool character would make a nice exclusive but I have a really dumb question - what's a Gar exactly? Mind you I barely saw any of the MYP cartoon.
