    Possible female characters

    Including only (a) characters Mattel officially has the rights to and (b) in the case of MYP females, following the same rules as the MYP thread, did I miss any out?

    Done/announced:
    • Teela
    • Goddess
    • Evil-Lyn (yellow)
    • Adora
    • She-Ra (styleguide)
    • Catra (styleguide)


    Characters not done at all:
    1. Queen Marlena
    2. Sorceress
    3. Hawke
    4. Queen Andreeno
    5. Queen Veena
    6. Entrapta
    7. Frosta
    8. Glimmer
    9. Queen Angella
    10. Castaspella
    11. Mermista
    12. Sweet Bee
    13. Netossa
    14. Spinnerella
    15. Double-Trouble
    16. Perfuma
    17. Peekablue
    18. Flutterina
    19. Starla
    20. Tallstar
    21. Jewelstar


    Major variants not yet done include Evil-Lyn (MYP), Sorceress (MYP), She-Ra (toy) and Marlena (MYP S2, red/blue armour). [Not planning to keep a comprehensive list of these, it could get silly quickly, especially since most of the She-Ra characters would be duplicated.]

    So far, the following female characters have a live trademark :

    - Sorceress

    - Catra

    - Sweet Bee

    - Queen Marlena


    That's 4 female figures SO FAR (August 2010)... Toyguru just said we'd get more female figures in 2011 than in 2010 (there were 3 in 2010, so that means minimum... 4 female figures in 2011).

    Seems like we have here 4 figures. What a coincidence, huh ? I bet we'll see at least SOME of these (Sweet Bee, Queen Marlena, Catra, Sorceress) in 2011. Now, we'll have to remain vigilant and watch regularly when there are new female trademarks that are filed...

    23. Wize Old Wizardess (mini comics, basicall Light Hope and the Sorceress combined)
    24. Mara

    I know you don't want a "variants list", but there isn't many:

    Toy She-Ra
    Starburst She-Ra
    Bubble Power She-Ra

    Styleguide Catra (Filmation Colours)
    Styleguide Catra (toy colours, shown riding Clawdeen)
    Toy Catra
    Shower Power Catra

    EDIT: I had to delete the Star Sisters because you just added them.

    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.

    Did she have a name? And I'm not going to add any minicomic-only characters until we get one that isn't a straight repaint...
    (in the same way it's Carnivus' place in the line that makes me feel it's safe to add QA & Hawke)

    Oh there's more than that - NA minicomic Sorceress, DC Bikini Teela, Siren Evil-Lyn (see the MYP thread linked above for a pic posted by MGM), Styleguide/toy Glimmer and various other POP characters...

    Not as far as I know, anyway. That's why I left her out.

    I don't see why she would be. She has a prototype, like the Star Sisters who appeared in Filmation, and her toy design isn't even the same as the cartoon (just like the Star Sisters).

    It's hard to know what's fully possible anymore, especially when we're told we can't get any Filmation stuff...and then we're shown purely Filmation stuff (Bow's harp and the Filmation-only look of the Shadowbeasts).

    Wise Old Wisardess IS her name. It's just like Sorceress is...Sorceress.





    Also, She-Ra's "toy mask" is mainly based on the mini-comics and not her toy.



    ...and Preternia Disguise He-Man is mini-comic ONLY and has new tooling for his head, chest piece and skirt.

    Speaking of Star Sisters, they've become my most wanted POP figures
    after seeing their toy pics for the first time. I'm hoping that Mattel
    releases them in a nice 3-pack in their toy form, because they would
    look stunning in this line.

    Well, here's what TG said about her:

    This actually fits with the harder line he's recently taken in questions on "created by Filmation, used in minicomics" characters...

    Sure, but look - Mattel's line is "toy mask".

    Moreover, even if we use our eyes rather than listening to them, it's a minicomic garnish on a Filmation/licencing guide-based figure. The same way Whiplash's 200X-based head was a garnish on a 198X-toy-based figure. And the hullabaloo stirred up on THAT in the past couple of days makes me, shall we say, reluctant to take a head as evidence of anything going forward.

    There is a princess Rana of Targa in the minicomic "Slave City" (which was basically the same story as the Filmation episode "Tale of two cities"). She wore orange and was vaguely native american in look, though.

    ...i was looking for the mini comics section, but i couldnīt find it...

    She is in the one with Geldor, her fathers is hold captive in a dungeon and Geldors wizard is making a hologram of her showing her with ripped clothes...

    And yes, she had a black warrior as boyfriend....

    She must be possible to make and looked great in my opinion!

    Doesn't Glimmer also have a live trademark?

    I just checked. I only see one for a doll, cell phone, furniture and dog shampoo. If I recall correctly, Glimmer was a horse in one of the recent Barbie lines.
