Yeah... We have a different mindset. I don't place any importance whatsoever with her being 'the only female'. That's like saying Mer-man is the single most important Evil Warrior because he's the only aquatic henchman.
As a rule, I'm not fond of the female characters anyways... I'm from the generation BEFORE Xena and Buffy and all the other 'woman warriors'. Before Wonder Woman carried an ax..
Back when Women were not allowed to be in physical combat with men folks. If Catwoman needed a beatdown... BatGIRL had to guest star that week... BatMAN dealt with the goons.
PROBABLY why I'm not too interested in PoP. There are a few fun characters I like... but as a whole, I just can't wrap my head around skeletor or Hordak capturing and torturing Glimmer or Mermista.
BOW? He's totally fair game. He can be shot and wounded in combat all he wants
It really boggles my mind they even MADE this figure with the 1.0 buck. They SHOULD have used the 2.0
if the 2.0 wasn't ready... then WAIT! Where was it written that BGEL HAD to come out at THAT specific time. Isn't that WHY they won't tell us the whole list of characters? So they can switch things up if something falls off schedule?
Why would they make a figure with the same substandard buck that they've been spending months trying to fix? Just to tell us... "oh, we'll make a better one later!"
Was EL REALLy that important that it NEEDED to be done so soon?
