    If Teela Gets a Two-Pack...

    *** Post here if you wish to support getting Teela in a Toys R Us two-pack next year!

    If Teela gets a two-pack treatment (possibly in 2011, after the next two being released in quarter one) how would you prefer her to appear? What variance on her design would make you grab one up?

    1. Which head?

    2. What color variations?

    3. What weapon(s)?

    4. Would you buy it if there is no upgrade on the female figure quality issues?

    5. Who should she be packed in with to battle?


    What are your thoughts? I have mine, and I'd like to hear what all the opinions are. There are many media versions of Teela, but it seems a given that they would release her with one of the two already existing heads.



    [ o o o Why does SHE get all the attention around here?]

    I say regular head with blonde hair, sword and shield, mini-comic colors, and she should be battling Bat Girl as I think Duncan will probably be battling Batman.

    Let's see....

    Blonde hair, red boots,
    don't care about accessories
    and
    she should be packaged with Wonder Woman!

    He-Man, Man-At-Arms and TEELA are the big three, the Superman, Batman and WONDER-WOMAN of MOTU!
    Not She-Ra! She can have Supergirl.
    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.

    1. Which head?

    Ponytail head.

    2. What color variations?

    Yellow in place of gold, in line with the comic-like appearance of the sets thus far.

    3. What weapon(s)?

    Ka, her magical staff, in marroon.

    4. Would you buy it if there is no upgrade on the female figure quality issues?

    I have no problem with the female figures, so yes!!!

    5. Who should she be packed in with to battle?

    Batgirl! (Babs.) (With a batarang.)
    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.

    Like many, I could see her with blond hair this time around, with red weapon and armor accessories.
    I would also assume she'd have the nicer, more pliable dress like Evil Lyn had.
    That would be the first two pack I'd buy if she came with those changes.

    My IDEAL version of a proposed ToysRUs Teela would be:

    1. Pony Tail head.
    2. Bright red hair, LIGHTER complexion, and the same gold paint they used on her 200X figure.
    3. Her sword and shield.
    4. Soft plastic on the loin-feathers, better neck peg would be NICE. But I'd buy her without changes, begrudgingly.
    5. She could be packed in with the talking piece of poo from South Park and I'd still buy her, so I don't care what superhero she battles. Hidey Hi!

    ^^This! Exactly.
    A minicomic- painted shield would be nice. And definitely Batgirl.

    1. Pony-tail head.

    2. Brown hair and boots (the original toy variant. Blonde should be the long hair one...which wouldn't be a repaint).

    3. Red shield, staff and snake headress

    4. Would you buy it if there is no upgrade on the female figure quality issues?

    Yes, but it should be on a NEW female buck with new neck peg (which they made for She-Ra, but the factory screwed up and didn't include).

    5. Who should she be packed in with to battle?

    Definitely not Wonder Woman. She's perfectly matched for She-Ra in like...3 million different ways. Maybe Batgirl or Supergirl. Probably Batgirl though. She's a smart red-head, strong and a side-kick type character. Wonder Woman and Supergirl both have Super-human strength, like She-Ra and Teela's just a strong, regular woman.

    Two thoughts, Darkspecter:

    1. She already HAS brown hair and boots! Or at least, brown enough!

    2. Where did you hear that there was an already existing new female buck? Rumors?

    If Teela gets a two-pack treatment (possibly in 2011, after the next two being released in quarter one) how would you prefer her to appear? What variance on her design would make you grab one up?

    1. Which head?
    The unhelmeted Teela head.

    2. What color variations?
    Make that Teela head blonde. Everything else can stay the same. Eyes, lips, cheeks, outfit.

    3. What weapon(s)?
    Make her staff gold or orange, like the mini-comics. White and gold shield like in He-Man and the Power Sword. No armor.

    4. Would you buy it if there is no upgrade on the female figure quality issues?
    Yes. After all, I can still use the head and weapons.

    5. Who should she be packed in with to battle?
    Wonder Woman. WW would kill her in a fight, but it isn't about that. They are both the first ladies of their universes.

    I definitely agree on the color scheme and agree with Batgirl, maybe even Donna Troy

    Also agree with the Wonder Woman idea, as long as I get a chance to get both Teela and She-Ra (missed them both) I don't really care who they're packed with as long as its either Wonderwoman, Batgirl, Donna Troy, or Supergirl.

    Wow, there is alot of different ideas already for how Teela should be Toy-R-Us-ed.

    I'm not sure if they would do a blonde Teela at retail. Wouldn't they want to give her the signature red hair to make her recognizable to people being re-introduced to her at retail?

    first, I would never buy this pack unless they fix ALL of the female figure problems first. Now, if they fix it:

    She should have her blonde tiara head AND The helmeted head with bright red armor. It's extra, but batgirl could come with nothing (she doesn't need the batarang).

    She should come with the staff and shield in bright red too.

    I think they have to do this because the Teeka they do as a variant on mattycollector could have the dc bikini body with the female motu belt/furry shorts. She could also have the reg long blonde hair head.

    Of course they could just give us the Snake armored Teela eith bright red armor and weapons and save the blonde tiara head for the dc teela variant we could get.

    I understand what you're saying, you have a good point, but I also think Mattel, as seen with Merman, want to incorporate the mini-comic paint schemes as releases to entice those who already have the figures to buy the repaint, if they leave her hair red I think they'd have less collectors who have the other figure pick it up. I for one missed Teela the first time so I'll be getting her regardless of her hair color

    Brian, do you think Mattel would do any new tooling for Teela at retail? The first four figures suggest a "straight-up repaint" approach....

    Good call Baena! Although I'll probably just be transplanting the blond haired one you painted on the upgraded dress.

    That is a VERY good point my friend, and TOTALLY dig your partial Teela description! I hope she resembles some of the mini-comic pictures....

    1: Ponytail head
    2:Brighter red. (Almost Filmation bright) White and Bright Yellow (TRU 2 pack He-Man Arm bands yellow)
    3: Staff of Ka in a Reddish color.
    4: No problem
    5:Bat Babs
    (WW can wait for She-Ra)
    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.

    It didn't stop Mattel from doing alternate colors on Mer-Man. Aside from real old school fans, no one knows he was once blue.

    I don't think they would do new tooling. That's why I think they would dobDC bikini Teela as a Quarterly variant, but not as a TRU excluisve. I hope DC Teela IS coming because it would mean a new female buck.

    Her hair's red.





    I can't find a picture of brown hair Teela, but it's the colour of King Randor and He-Ro.

    There is no female buck 2.0 (yet, at least), but there is for sure a new female neck peg. Toyguru confirmed the factory screwed up and didn't include the new peg on She-Ra.

    I forgot to put the link to the She-Ra and Wonder Woman thread so everyone can read everyone's thoughts on that pack...and how everything with Wonder Woman and She-Ra are basically the same.

    I for one disagree that Teela should be paired with Wonder Woman. Sure Teela has tremendous fighting skill but she poses no super powers or strength against the likes of Wonder Woman. Batgirl would be the best match for Teela. She-Ra is a more suitable match for Wonder Woman.

    Also, did DC ever make a Raven figure? I don't collect them so I'm not sure. If so I see that as a perfect match to a Filmation colored Evil-Lyn.
