    Should POP's Mystery Gal Bubble Girl Be Made Into A Figure?

    This is artwork of the Unproduced Bubble Carriage in a German catalog. Next to She-Ra, there's a mystery gal passenger who cannot be identified. She's somewhat reminiscent of Flutterina, except there are no wings and her outfit is a different color with a strange design on her bodice.

    Can you come up with a name and bio for her?

    I would like her. Mattel said they had "plans" for all the random guys driving vehicles in the MOTU line (like model kits, the posters and such). Why not this girl, then? You can see her better than most of those guys too!

    I'm really curious what she's supposed to be. Most PoP girls are based on nature, magical, spiritual or mythical things:

    - Angel
    - Mermaid
    - Butterfly
    - Ice woman

    This girl looks like she has a string on pearls diagonally down her top, a skirt in the shape of an upside-down rose and 3 circular holes or objects at the top of her boot.

    Maybe she comes from the sea as well? Her colouring kind of suggests that a bit. Something seems very "dream sequence" about her too. Like a ballerina from a dream? She could have something to do with bubbles though. The Bubble Carriage could be hers. It could be from her kingdom of bubbles? I don't know.

    I'm all for making figures out of obscure characters, but this is stretching it. I'd be pretty unhappy if this came out as part of a subscription instead of an established character.

    If they ever release that character, she'd better be much cooler and less, hum... pastel.

    But I don't think they went that far with obscure characters.

    Personally I think the old Wizzardess / Seer of Etheria deserves the title of POP's mystery girl. She was kinda like Light Hope and very important to She-Ra in the mini comics, but her concept either morphed into Light Hope or was just not felt strong enough to take foward. I really hope we see her, but I doubt Mattel will be intrested in her, Josh has already been abandoned by TG. I suppose Catra's Cat Worriors might appeal enough to the male demographic.

    I think that is just a miss colored mermista in the carriage with her.

    Given that it's not the best art in the world, it really looks like Mermista to me next to She-Ra.

    Real Name: Jess

    Jess comes from a wealthy Etherian family that sided with the Rebels in their fight against the Horde. Although not one for battle herself, she has become very well acquainted with the ladies of the Great Rebellion through her brother Josh. Having quite the reputation as a party girl, Jess is the one everyone turns to when it's time to have some fun. Jess gets the girls all hopped up on goofbubbles and takes them on a wild, skirtless ride in daddy's Bubble Carriage!

    I concur with this statement. There are way too many POP girls to do to be considering this one. I understand the theory behind MOTUC, but dont you think the POP girls are coming slow enough, without adding this "character"? I do. I want Octavia and Scorpia as well as all the other girls now and not any later by adding obscure POP girls.

    ...and I shall call her...

    Bubbles, Heroic Pilot's Wife (aka Mrs. Wind Raider Pilot)

    (insert story that makes sense here) and now she helps She-Ra and her new friends in the Great Rebellion by making sure the Bubble Carriage stays in good working order in the fight against evil!
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    "Bubble Girl" in MOTUC

    Bubble Girl is a character that only appeared in an advertisement for the Bubble Carriage (a vehicle to be released in the Princess of Power toy line). Bubble Girl is the PoP equivalent of the Monogram pilots and Wind Raider pilot in MOTU (which were turned into The Fighting Foe Men and Sky High, respectively). It would only be fair to get Bubble Girl, like we got those guys.

    She's riding inside the Bubble Carriage with She-Ra. It's been suspected she was to be part of the Wave 3 figures, but they decided to give the Bubble action feature/gimmick to She-Ra instead (Bubble Power She-Ra). She could come with a recoloured version of She-Ra's Bubble gun (which may have originally been for Bubble Girl). Here's the ad:



    Kevenn made a BEAUTIFUL picture of Bubble Girl. I hope this is okay to share. He calls her "Bubbleiya."



    I'm pretty sure I've seen more fan art pictures of her, but I can't find them right now.

    Your welcome! I accidentally forgot about the 2011 support thread she had. Could a mod merge this thread with the old one and PLEASE make sure Bubble Girl is in the topic name? It's very hard to find that support thread otherwise.

    Well, if the Horseman could make her a bit more interesting than what she is shown in that vintage artwork, I'd be game. But I wouldn't want to see her until at least 2017.

    Since we know she is for real now, it would be fun to see her get made.

    Joya is an unusual name but since bubbles do bring joy it´s fitting name after all

    Plus Bubble Power She-Ra has moved on anyway and is NA She-ra now we definitely can use a bubble girl !!!!

    Joya also means "jewel", "gem" or "precious stone" in Spanish.

    Interesting. So she could have more powers than just bubbles but what ever she is cab able of she is for sure sparkly and shiny. I like that

    This is great. We finally have official confirmation that this was a brand new character after all. I'd like

    Very interesting info! Thank you for finding this out! Joya - I like this name and now I'm gunning for a figure of her! Also, very curious to know what other She-ra variant may have existed!

    Yes, and it had me thinking that her bodice perhaps didn't have bubbles on it but pearls, to connect it to her name Joya (J has an "H" sound in Spanish). A pearled armored maiden with a bubble gun and gem wheeled carriage, just Awesome!!

    I believe they should make the bubble carriage "vehicle" as possibly our only POP vehicle and have it attachable to Arrow or Swiftwind, or possibly do another horse maybe that belongs to Glimmer and have the pack in figure be Joya. If you look at it this way, the albeit obsessive POP fans(myself included), would want both the carriage and Joya, maybe even a second carriage and will sell off our second Joya's. So they will be scooped up by folks who only want just the figure. I know the vehicle pack in figures never made everyone happy but still, it'd be a great set.
