    Will She-Ra V2 replace or co-exist with V1 in your collection?

    For the folks planning on buying She-Ra V2, will you be keeping V1 in your collection, or is the outdated She-Ra destined for the landfill?

    Since there are actual sculpt differences, I'm considering them two distinct versions.

    The old She-Ra will be re-named "Trepanning She-Ra" after Hordak drills a hole in her head to more effectively mind-wipe her.

    Once I get my hands on the new version, the old version is going in the "to sell" pile. At least, her body is. I'll keep the heads and the accessories, but I have zero use for the unable-to-move, stiff plastic dressed She-Ra body with plain boots and bracers when there's going to be this more-detailed, more bad-ass version of her in my collection. UPGRADE!

    My old She-Ra stays where she is (I like the hard plastic dress way better than the soft gummy plastic) and I'll display the new She-Ra on Swiftwind.

    I wasn't planning to get the new version but it does look very nice. Not sure which of the two I prefer.

    I'll decide as soon as I got 2.0 in hand, but it is very likely I will replace the first version of She-Ra.

    ....custom fodder...
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    I don't have 1.0 and don't intend on getting her after seeing 2.0. Glad I waited.

    I can't really tell the difference between the two. I already have one, I'm not paying $30 for another.

    I'm just happy that ToyGuru and the Four Horsemen listened to our critiques of the first She-Ra and have come up with something that many of us are going to be very happy with. I give them major points for taking what we think into account! Shall we harp on them for a better Teela now?

    I'll probably display v2 because she can ride swift wind and I'll give v1 to my daughter so I can start the next generation of motu fans in my family.

    Replace. I kinda screwed up my 1.0 by cutting the skirt on the sides and doing a HORRIBLE job. I'm gona gank her accessories and head and use 'em with the new one. Very much looking forward to 2.0! Not only are they fixing my major problem (that resulted in me ruining my old one) but it just looks great! Didn't realize how plain the first one was when compared to details on the original figure. Can't wait to see her classic toy sword!

    The new version looks much better and I she will replace my V1 provided I can get her from Mattycollector.com.

    She-Ra 2.0 will be on Swiftwind and She-Ra 1 will be next to Adora doing the transformation. SR1 stands still very nicely

    2 She ra's

    I really don't know what I am going to do with mine. I do not put the figures on thier mounts due to lack of hieght on my shelves (I have one shelf for the beasts) I can't and don't want to sell her, maybe I will just give her the old mask and gold sword and shield and put her somewhere else in my room.

    Thoughts?

    Ever since I was a kid, I've had one He-Man on a shelf, one at a desk, and one on a night stand. So, I would agree it's a good idea to have She-Ra elsewhere in your room.

    I *so* feel like I'm not in the know on this, but...do we know when Swift Wind is to be released?

    I'll be putting the version 2.0 head (without hole) on the version 1.0 body to make She-Ra without tiara (as seen in one of the cartoon eps)

    She-Ra 2.0 is going on Swift Wind since that's what she was basically designed to do.

    Version 1.0 is either going to remain beside He-Man or on the POP shelf.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    I'm going to take She-ra 2.0 as an upgrade and I am going to put my previous She-ra to rest.

    From the little I've seen, She-Ra 2.0 looks to be an improvement. I have several of my figures posed in various action poses against each other. Due to the stiff skirt, I couldn't get much done with the original She-Ra.

    She's still a pretty good figure in my opinion. So I will probably use the original for generic posing display options, and use the new She-Ra as my main go to girl for action displays.

    I have multiple He-Men, Skeletors, and She-Ras because I like one on the shelf and one in the computer room.The old She-Ra will probably end up on my computer desk. So it's all good.

    I believe Swiftwind is released in november this year, together with She-Ra 2.0
