    Peekablue in MOTUC

    So I was thinking about this character today, and how she could be incorporated into the Classics line. I never really thought much about her before honestly. However, one of the things that strikes me about this character is the potential her abilities give her to be something of an oracle, perhaps not only seeing over long distances and other dimensions, but maybe even into the past or the future. As I thought about it, I think the idea would be pretty cool since that would make her a very powerful ally and intregal part of the rebellion.

    Something else struck me as I was reading her style guide bio. In it, it talks about how she is "proud of her plummage and likes to strut around Etheria showing them off". That got me to thinking, what if Peekablue was an entertainer, perhaps like a showgirl? Maybe she runs some kind of Vegas-esque entertainment complex on Etheria? Since we know that the Horde would more than likely would have an establishment like this under it's thumb, it would stand to reason that perhaps this would make Peekablue reluctant ally of the Rebellion, as doing so could mean the end of her very profitable business.

    Just some ideas I had as I thought about it. I was curious what some of you guys would think of this take on the character.

    personally, i am in with the oracle (and hypnotist, too) version.

    not very fond of the idea of showing her as a dream mistress' colleague!

    Here here! Call me a cartoon purist (at least as far as She-Ra goes!) but I loved the seeress thing. Gave her a real important role to me.

    I am actually looking forward to Peekablue for this reason more than many other of her more favoured compatriots. I think I only want Glimmer & Castaspella more perhaps, and that includes Frosta who I like but doesnt rank as highly.

    I definitely want to see Peek-A-Blue in this line--she's a stunning character visually!

    What are your thoughts on some easy parts reusage for her? I'm thinking:

    BP She-Ra's boots in teal and red as an homage to the vintage toy's boots
    Teela's lower arm gauntlets in teal and an appropriate accent color (again, as an homage to the toy)
    Starla's bodice in teal (though they'd have to remove the star and add peacock feathers)
    She-Ra's lower skirt/belt in gold
    She-Ra's shield in teal with an appropriately colored stone
    (The head and backpack would obviously be all new.)

    Telkan2,

    I like that you're thinking about this kind of thing. It may not be my optimal Peekablue, but I can play along with the parts reuse speculation game.

    I favor her style guide look, so I'd be fine with She-Ra 1.0's boots and bracers.
    If a bodice was reused I'd choose Sorceress's bodice and I think you're correct the BP She-Ra's skirt could be neat.
    Teela's legs, with the additional poseability

    That's if the have heavy parts reuse.

    I've always had a very special spot in my heart for Peekable (the only MOTU/PoP character I got brand new from a store!).

    I've always loved her dynamic toy design and she always struck me as a very interesting character, including her powers!

    She can see everywhere with her eyes, but I thought she could see into the near future. I definitely see her as having pre-cognitive abilities. She can see through time and space itself, to me!

    I'll have to re-watch the episode Hordak captures her and uses her for evil. It makes me sad though because she was crying, when forcing her to use her powers.

    Anyway, I think she saw that she was going to be captured before she was captured...which is where I got that idea about pre-cognition from.

    ...also that she hypnotizes people. Oh wait, I think that's Starla's power!

    I'm very certail Mattel will not make her a "Las Etherian" Showgirl. That's a tad risque. Plus, Spinnerella is the professional dancer.

    EDIT:

    Here are her bios:







    "Fan her feathers and she sees all!" - I would say past, present and future would be part of "all."

    Peekablue was always my favourite POP figure when I was a kid- because she's so colourful!!!

    Can't wait to see her in MOTUC. Given that the 4HM are tackling each and every character with an enormous amount of creativity and Mattel trust their judgement, I think we're in for a treat. I was trying to think of ways they could make the more 'girly' characters appeal to the masses and with Peekablue (and Flutterina, in fact) I think they'd need to make her feathers *massive*- formidable even, to the point where you can't help but respect them!

    I think Darkspecter is right- Peekablue's powers can see into the immediate future, making her almost like a prophet. I love how Filmation characterise her as a hermit, as she's too afraid to become too involved with the Rebellion for fear of the Horde. I'd like to see this incorporated in her MOTUC bio, but maybe have her as more of a nomad moving from place-to-place, as she knows how valuable she'd be to Hordak but with no physical strength, would struggle to fight him off.

    Peeks has the potential to become a fan-favourite, I believe, and I can't wait for her reveal...whenever it may be!

    I really liked that too! I would like to see it go a bit further though. I would like to think part of the reason she left society is because she was scared of her powers of prophecy. She kept seeing friends and family enslaved and kidnapped by the Horde before it would happen, and she blamed herself, so she left her village at an early age for a life of solitude. She believed if she wasn't around the people to have the visions, bad things wouldn't happen to them.

    Just an idea.

    Peekablue sounds like the resident POP voyeur! Maybe she can spy on She-Ra, Teela, Evil Lyn, the Goddess, Sorceress and Queen Marlena and try to catch them nude in the shower.

    Peekablue: I see all.

    Teela: Oh really? Well I guess there's no point in keeping these clothes on then!

    Peeablue is one of my most eagerly anticipated figures, not only from POP but from any branch of the property!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I've said this before, but Mattel can always cash in on the Lady GaGa craze with The Star Sisters...or rather...The Star Sisterz. Etheria's part-time resident girl group. Imagine an edgy commercial like this.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that Lilac was the only flower name in that commercial. Heather is a bush/shrub, & Rosemary is a/an herb.

    Oh believe me, I doubt Mattel would do the showgirl angle in her bio. I just thought it would be a neat angle for my own personal canon. To me it adds a bit of interesting shading to the characterization.

    And for the record, when I say showgirl I'm talking about more of the Vegas review type, not really an entertainer of the stripper pole or "lady of the night" variety.

    It makes me wonder if Peekablue should be more feathered than just sporting a peacock tail?

    If we hope to one day have a MOTUC Hawke or Delora (Avion not human Delora) figure then we could expect Mattel to sculpt bird-lady arms and legs. Would Peekablue benefit from being freed from the shackles of 1980s POP manufacture and slavish parts re-use by having a more Avion-like body?

    Or do fans want Peekablue to remain human with bird tail-feathers?

    I only raise this as I'm trying to think how the 4H can knock us all out of the park with a cool new re-interpretation of this character.

    I loved her toy as a child and am looking forward to her in Classics. Hadn't thought about it until this thread but isn't it only male Peafowl that has the bright showy feathers? (at least on earth)

    This is one of the figures that'll mark the beginning of the end for me. I don't have any want to get this figure at all and several others. If I've got all the Horde and other MOTU characters I want by that time, I'll stop with the sub and start just cherry picking.

    I DEFINITELY want a Hawke/Delora figure.

    The style guide version of Peekablue looks okay to me, but I wonder how they will amp her up a notch. I'm a huge POP supporter, but I don't want those dolls recreated into the MOTUC without a warrior-like update.

    Are those feathers something she puts on, or are they growing out of her back? The answer is that they are either organic or technology. Regardless, I want to see those feathers look like something cool and not a Barbie accessory.

    How would the anti-POP crowd feel if the Horsemen included and extra bird head and enough extra little details on her costume that you could transform her into a bird creature? That way you could imagine her as a new character along the lines of Whiplash, Buzz Off or Carnivus.

    Same could work with Sweet Bee, Mermista and maybe Flutterina. Now Perfuma would require a whole lot of work to revamp.
