And for all intents and purposes, I think its only a minority that thinks
of Mo-Larr as a legitimate MOTU character, if that. Using that rationale
you can stick Optimus Prime into the line and call him MOTU
Again, why? its utterly gratuitous.I posted a picture of her above. She's from MOTU. She's blonde, reminiscent of Barbie, is a warrior and has no name. We're not talking about making her a Barbie doll, just including Barbie in MOTUC...AS a MOTUC.
None of which has been in the 6 inch action figure format, again, purelyBarbie has taken many forms. For example, in the Barbie lines, she's almost always "Barbie as." Barbie as Marilyn Monroe (before they made ones with her likeness, Barbie as Star Trek, Barbie as Agent Dana Skully from X-Files, Barbie as Wonder Woman (1999), etc.
about fashion with barbie, regardless of who they dress her up as.
But what audience? The Barbie audience? You can't be all things to allBarbie-ella would be Barbie AS a MOTUC, in the same style, to fit in with the line as a cross promotion, trying to appeal to a wider audience. This is not excessive or obsolete. The bigger the fan base gets for MOTUC (Robot Chicken guys jumping aboard, Barbie fans, etc.), the better chance we have of getting more things like: movies, comics, toys at retail...the possibilities are endless.
people, throwing Barbie into the mix simply to attract a few more fans,
if it even does that isn't necessary. MOTU is what it is, people should
be able to take it as is.
Thus, She-Ra and her pals come into play if you're looking forStrong fanbases with big numbers = more products. This is a fun idea that may help with that, or at the very least (if they went with idea #2), get a cool looking female figure from 80's MOTU made.
a cool 80's female figure, as oppose to forcing a character from
an entirely different toyline into MOTUC.
