    AFI reveals Clawdeen (April Fools)

    LOL! Very funny! The sadddle and straps just don't look right...nice try though.

    In anticipation this month of ActionFigureInsider.com’s 5th Anniversary (woo-hoo!) we reached out to some of our friends to get some scoops. Our friends at Mattel were kind enough to grant us one, but because this particular one was going to be revealed before our 5th Anniversary celebration we are going to kick things off early with an exclusive FIRST LOOK at a 4th quarter MattyCollector.com exclusive Masters of the Universe figure.

    I don’t think this figure/character will be much of a surprise, as she was hinted at in our interview with Scott aka Toy Guru back in January at the MOTU Art gallery opening. Also as soon as She-Ra was announced you knew she’d be partnered with another figure from her team.

    The Four Horsemen have knocked it out of the park again updating this classic figure’s look for 2010!

    Who is She-Ra’s mysterious partner coming to your toy shelf at the end of the year? The reveal is right after the jump!

    I'd rather they did a sculpted mane though, preferably one that can get re-used for King Grayskull's green lion.

    Yeah I agree, a sculpted mane would probably help tremendously!
    While I like the idea of eventually getting a Clawdeen figure, that one, albeit a mock-up, is quite underwhelming...

    No, I had a sister that did but it wasn't He-man so I never bothered with it.

    I can't recall if Clawdeen had its own mold, or was just another re-use of the Battle Cat/Panthor mold, but the picture there is essentially accurate. It was a pink lion with a rooted mane, flocking, sparkly eyes and an ornate saddle.

    Catra, natch.

    It's... kind of creepy when you think about it, especially since the packaging bio claims that Clawdeen taught Catra how to shapeshift.

    Grunt grunt.

    (read this in the voice of Cartman):

    Girls are lame. My sister watched that show because she was a dumb girl. I was a man's man!! I watched He-Man!! That furry loincloth and harness are manly.

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha

    Uhm, April Fools?

    Just teasing.

    This mockup is obviously SUPPOSED to look ridiculous, BUT the body looks really cool in that shade of pink. It's not girly froo froo.

    I do hope they do something with the saddle. It would be cool to have some kind of homage in it's design, but I'd like to see something new.

    it was odd because it was a smaller version of the battle cat mold. And she/he was flocked (there is still some conjecture over whether it is a male or female).

    I guess they spent the money on that laser scanning technique that shrinks down a mold by scanning the original object, and then reducing it on the computer and then using that info to program a machine that made this kind if mold?

    That was brilliantly worded, no? Hahaha.
