    How about a Sorceress/Teela Mother-Daughter Breast Cancer Awareness 2 pak

    This idea originally came up on Mattycollector.com forums by Rodimus Knight, then it was brought up on Toymaker's A-list Teela thread. Swanmarsh suggested that there should be a thread devoted to it. Here it is!

    Mother-Daughter Breast Cancer Awareness 2 pak with Pink Sorceress & Pink Teela (plus pack-in Pink Zoar):





    Of course, we'd have to wait until The Sorceress actually comes out, so I wouldn't expect this to go down anytime soon.

    The proceeds could go to breast cancer research.

    Who's down?

    I wouldn't buy them as just pink variants for the sake of pink variants, but if it was a charity thing, I'd be on board!

    I'd be down for that. I was down for the fighting breast cancer Teela from the start.
    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.

    I'd be down for this as well - I'd purchase at least 2.

    I like the idea a lot. I do see it as being a very complex decision for Mattel though and don't see it ever happening.

    I LOVE this idea! The fact that there are valid, pink representations of the two characters in the mini-comics already makes it practically a no-brainer. Mattel, seize this opportunity!
    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'm up for this.
    Pink Teela and Sorceress aren't exactly must haves for me, but if it's for charity, then sure, count me in.
    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.

    Only if there will be a prostate cancer awareness 2 pack too!
    One of the biggest risks out there guys, especially our (filmation generation) age.
    Check your balls! Seriously, no kidding!

    So I would like the butch blue vest Adam from the comic and... dunno... something blue.

    Oh, and I am all for this 2 pack too. I actually had chest surgery 6 months ago (as a guy) removing lumps. My mom is a survivor and I was at risk. Everything was negative but it was a ****** operation
    I have some horrible pictures and one nipple looks crappy.

    I looked at the Matty board & the idea was for a Pink Teela, which could easily be made by next October, who changed it to include a figure that doesn't even exist yet??

    What a great idea! I'd certainly buy something like this, if not for the figures, at least for the charity!

    I really like this idea, I think it totally needs a go. I certainly don't mind paying more for this set because it benefits a worthy cause, plus we'd get two cool variants. I've always wanted a pink Soceress.

    I'd be up for this and I'd buy one for the cause. I don't really want anything pink though and after watching NFL football this week and thinking something was wrong with my HDTV because everyone was wearing so much pink, I'm not sure I want a pink figure. Maybe a special figure with a pink ribbon sticker.
    It's all about being polished when it counts!

    I would be up for this 2-pack, but I don't think Teela and Sorceress should be in pink. They should simply have bare breasts to show that they are proud of them.

    Iīm not exactly sure what either Teela or Sorceress would have to do with breast cancer, but I see both pink variants, including Zoar, as a beautiful giftset. Have it include a hardcover reprint of the minicomics they appeared in and itīs an awesome seller for sure.
    Iīd definetly get 2 and maybe a third one for our daughter to play with. And I would even pay a little more (a LITTLE! Mattel, donīt get dollarsigns in your eyes!) if it supports a good cause.

    Hey MGM, not to be an ass, but that should say Toymakers A-List Teela thread!

    I don't get credit for much on life! Lol

    Onto the topic, great idea, but if done separatly Teela could be released this year.

    I love Temple of Darkness and Double Edged Sword, so to get that Teela and raise money for a good cause is all good in my book!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    Yeah, it definitely was Toymaker's A-list Teela thread within which the idea was raised. I just did my best to help MGM derail it on the Pink!

    For the petition, I love this idea and am up for 2 if ever released!

    I apologise to those folks who think we're upsetting the charity cause by adding Pink Sorceress to the mix and causing delay. That was never the intention! Indeed, I personally would be happy to buy a solo Pink Teela for charity and then later a Sorceress/Teela 2-pak. I think we all know an exclusive Sorceress-Teela 2pak would sell out for so many reasons (not the least of which is charity)!

    I also have a view that Mattel could wisely & profitably release a mini-comic (pink and/or white) coloured vintage Sorceress as an exclusive long before releasing her classic colours version. Sure some fans would hold out for the classic coloured version but many of us would buy the earlier pink/white release as a place holder!

    A future round of pink She-Ra/pink Swiftwind sets for breast cancer would also be a winner of an idea IMO.

    At first, I thought it sounded like a stoopid idea, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense. And I would love a pink mini-comics Sorceress.

    The only problem is that it would be a lot of work for Mattel for what would end up being a pretty small donation overall. I would guess that this kind of 2 pack would have a run of only a few thousand (at best). I would buy this for myself, and the proceeds would just happen to go to a charity. I can't imagine my mum or my sister wanting the figures.

    It would definitelty be a cool SDCC exclusive.

    I'd be on it if it were a set that could be sold at retail. For a charity item with proceeds going to the group, I'd think a larger run would be best. Making 10K or less and watching them sell out in 2 minutes might be good for business but hardly for the charity. Not to mention a great way to advertise the line and bad press for any retailer that refused to carry it.

    With regard to the size of the end donation from Mattel to Breast Cancer research, I think this could end up being a marketing bonanza for the breast cancer cause, Mattel and MOTUC, outstripping the $$$ actually raised.

    A. Breast cancer research would benefit from publicity appealling to a younger demographic
    B. MOTUC and Mattel would possibly obtain widespread publicity from the collaboration - raising MOTU in profile to potentially a new audience.
    C. Say Mattel makes 5000 units, at $20 charity profit per item, it's still $100,000 donation. Nothing to sneeze at!

    Who knows, from a marketing perspective, maybe Mattel could draw in He-Man's much larger public profile to help the cause by packing pink Teela with a pink He-Man armor, a slight wink to the Goddess release for us fans.

    Edit: sorry, that last idea was dumb. I forgot non fans attracted to the pink Teela-Sorceress pack to support the charity would not have a He-Man figure to wear the pink armor Sorry!

    I think this is an excellent idea! I'm not too keen on a pink version of either character, were they bonus figures or standard releases, but for a great cause, even at $5 more, this would be an excellent way for fans to show their support not only for all things MOTU, but also for one of the most devastating diseases known to womankind. If you guys clamored for more females in the line, I know that supporting a "female cause" isn't too far of a stretch, either.

    Mattel, why haven't you jumped on this yet? It's GREAT PR for you!! Hell, why not do a Teela/Wonder Woman 2-pack, with Teela (a straight repaint) with the gold parts done in pink (or metallic pink), and Wonder Woman with her red costume parts done in pink (or metallic pink)...you could call it "Battle for a cure", and include a pin or something in the package.

    Eh, have to say no thank you.

    If Mattel wants to promote cancer awareness and put a "accepting donation" link on their site go ahead.

    But I'd rather not have some pink variant figure in the line just to promote the charity of the week.

    I'm afraid you're forgetting the actual cost of producing the figures. They definitely don't cost $0 to produce.
