    What does the ability to reuse some of the mold on an obscure character have to do with the question I was posing in my post?

    The vintage POP figures shared parts too and they could do so in MOTUC as well. Besides, those toy designs are just as recognizable amongst collectors (if not more so) than a Shadow Beast. Sales-wise, two higher-priced Beasts, one of which the vast majority of fans were not aware of, were a bigger risk.

    Really? Not more like Bow who is basically Teela in PoP?
    Okay, she's more like Bow then. haha! The point was: She's a sidekick, not a headlining character.

    I did have a thought that maybe they would paint She-Ra 2.0's body like the classic toy and then have the dress be able to be put on over it similar to Marlena. So She-Ra would be both the classic toy and the style guide in one. Maybe even have the skirt & top part be separate pieces?
    Most of us POP fans do think She-Ra 2.0 will have the option of a classic toy outfit.

    But going back to the original point - If everything from mini-comic to DC comic to concept art versions are being used in MOTUC, then there's absolutely no reason why Mattel/the 4H should have to settle on one look for the POP gals. If they exclude the rest of the POP toy designs, there's something wrong with that picture.

    These were really cool! I had a couple of them, and some coloring books. But most people have forgotten them.

    cool show guys ...

    i really liked eric's insight into certain things ... very informative and interesting ...

    i also agree with his comments on the subject of some of the criticism himself, the 4H and mattel receive on the boards ... some of the accusations/assumptions they are fired with range from the strange to the plain ridiculous ...

    Just to throw my two cents out there if Eric is reading:

    Adora & Catra (and She-Ra for the most part) are Awesome!

    Bow is cool but went a little too far into new territory for me with the altered details.

    Great show guys and thanks for your time Eric!

    Nope.
    Perhaps on another episode.
    It'll give us more to talk about.

    Finally finished hearing 47 and 48 and they are the best shows in a very long time. It was long overdue. Im glad Eric explained the rising cost of the toys. Maybe it will quiet all of those people that keep complaining about the cost and how they are paying too much for "substandard and flawed figures." There are so many people involved that sometimes it is very hard to catch the mistakes until it is too late, but enough about that, and don't get all touchy about that comment, cuz its just a comment and not an invitation. I appreciate the explanation about the actual tooling and process that it takes to get us these awesome figures.
    One suggestion to the hosts, can you guys pose some of the more controversial issues when you do have special guests that are directly involved with the making of the figures . I know there are some issues that you guys also had with some of the figures, I.E. king hiss. Thanks for the great gooble.

    These are some of my favourite episodes. Loads of juicy creative stuff.

    I still say we need dinner table sound effects....and a hot Swedish waitress...for no good reason at all!

    I just about cheered when this was mentioned.

    Coming from one of the people who could have been more pleased by Hiss' snake form, I would jump at any chance to get -that- snake form.

    But for me the human side we already have is perfection. Exactly what I wanted and hoped for.
    As well as the Earl Norem Hiss I'd also love the short fur Grizzlor from the Earl Norem Horde painting
