    I love POP in MOTUC. I love POP Filmation. But I don't like the vintage toyline.

    Yes. To me, She-Ra is a part of MOTU. There is no separate brand name as far as I’m concerned.

    Yea I think so. For the most part some of the "sillier" characters like Sweet Bee are no different than say Buzz off. Both are Bee people. Both have silly names. Yay for equal opportunity!

    However I will admit that I could do without some of the vintage PoP elements. Comb weapons are a wasted accessory in my book. They made sense for the vintage line, because they had comb-able hair, but a "whip comb" for Catra's plastic hair serves little purpose beyond having a silly looking whip

    Otherwise though there are some good characters that fit in well. Plus they are good looking girls in spandex!
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    YES, she does belong in MOTUC.

    In fact, POP characters are among my most sought after characters in the line, now. Characters from Etheria and Filmation characters from both MOTU and POP are my primary collecting interests now. I bought FOUR subs next year to ensure I start getting most of them.

    Funnily those are exactly the examples I choose when I want to explain what I do not like about POP. While both are bee people and look somewhat silly at least Buzz Off is a real creature with claws, non human texture and a creature head. Sweet Bee on the other hand just looks like an earth girl in a party dress. The only creature design from POP I like is Octavia since she does actually look the part. I wish more of the female POP characters were like her. I like some of the male Horde characters from POP though. Like General Sunder, Batros and even Dylamug.

    I just wanted to POP in and say that I'm pretty much a MOTU purist. But I bought She-ra (love Her) and all the Horde members because they look like they belong with the rest of my collection. A lot of the POP stuff just doesn't fit with the rest of them aesthetically. Not that they are not beautiful figures. I didn't get Adam or Orko for the same reason. I'm pretty positive I won't keep Glimmer. I'm not hating. They just don't fit in to my Barbarian cyborg sorcery thing I got go'n on. It might be weird to some but the concept figures and Teela Lyn variants fit in to my collection way better than say Bow.

    I also wanted to say that on the whole the She-ra cartoon is a bit stronger than He-man. In my opinion because filmation had kind of hit their stride during that show.

    However I might just keep Netossa because she's really beautiful looking.

    All in all I have no complaints. My buddy likes the NA and POP stuff that I'm not as into. I love this line so much and am happy people can get the characters they love.
    PEACE

    Filmation style PoP deffinately belongs in MOTUC!!!!!! Vintage Toy style, not so much as rooted hair doesn't fit and the style was too different from MOTU to be consistant with the classics, but maybe they could do two packs outside the sub for that or a toy varient mini sub for die hard she-ravers.

    now, 28 years old, I can enjoi a POP episode but there are very few he-man's that I actually dont find not well written and partially really weird.
    even the she-ras theme is more captivating!

    edit: I used to watch them in italian so there was dubbing on voices....whats wrond with castaspella? is she a he?

    Why is this question even being asked? Yes POP belongs in MOTUC. Mattel has said that from the get go, and it is all a part of the same universe.

    Seems like a silly question to me. Even if you dislike POP it's been a part of MOTU for decades, so I don't see how it shouldn't be in MOTUC as well.

    Guys, the question in the OP (which wasn't even anti-PoP) was posed back in 2010! At the time I think PoP was only represented in MOTUC by Adora, She-Ra, and only just announced Bow, so it really was a different time from now.

    My bad. I just assume that most threads on the first page are recent or ongoing discussions and not necro-threads. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yep. This thread is a bit outdated now, so in order to avoid confusion, I am closing it.
