    POP Horses Official Speculation/Discussion Thread

    The horses of POP are going to be re-used over and over again, but they don┤t have any accesories (except Swiftwind that have a helmet and armor).

    In order to avoid getting the same sculpt , what special bonus must include each figure?

    - Arrow - Quiver with different arrows (1 long for the Bow action figure)
    - Storm - Catbirds
    - Sundancer - Jewelstar "jewel form"
    - Moonbeam - Crystal Sword of Protection and Crystal Shield

    Those are great ideas, outside of Arrow coming with Kowl and Storm coming with Catra in cat form, I can't think of any "accessory" type add-ins that could rival your ideas.

    Those are some cool exceptions.

    When they do start making additional horses, though, I expect that they will at least change the mane and tails ont hem. Possibly even completely different head sculpts, like they did with Panthor.

    And I do hope we still get wings with all of them, since all of the old toys had wings.

    I can see different heads (its a great idea), like BC and Panthor, but even Panthor got a bonus accesory never seen before.

    I don't have any ideas for accessories, thus I'm not really bringing anything to the conversation. But I just wanna say my five year old niece is desperate for Crystal Sundancer and Crystal Moonbeam. She's wanted the originals ever since she saw me looking at them on eBay.

    IF they go with Filmation's version of Arrow (I prefer the toy), he needs a new mane for sure. All the other horses can share the same head/mane and tail (as long as nothing's crazy windblown or anything).

    I think new accessories are a much cooler idea. I would just hate to see tooling money go to make slight/almost unnoticeable changes to the face, mane and tail whereas the money could go towards more accessories, extra heads, new body parts for other characters that need it, etc.

    - Arrow: 4 new arrows for Bow
    - Storm: 4 of Catra's catbirds (different colours, same sculpt is fine)
    - Crystal Sundancer: SweetBee's helmeted head from Filmation
    - Crystal Moonbeam: Jewelstar's jeweled form

    Then there are the variants:

    - Crystal Swiftwind: Crystal Sword of Protection and shield

    The last two have enough new pieces to not come with extras:

    - Royal Swiftwind
    - Silver Storm

    nice ideas: different heads/mane/tale are a must.

    i also like all the suggestions for the extra accessories, i'd just add a smaller horde crossbow for catra (storm) and a hook on the saddle to store bow's harp (arrow).

    They only two I'd be interested in is Storm and Arrow. I'd like Storm in gray/silver, not white and and Arrow in the Filmation brown, not blue. As others have said a different head/mane/tale are a must and Storm coming with Catra in cat form and Arrow with Kowl would be great packins and give more people like myself, who aren't overly fussed about more horses, further incentive to buy them. I'd also like Storm to come with a normal black, non-comb whip for Catra.

    well, things like a Unicorn horse for Teela certainly doesnt need wings, and I wouldnt want Arrow to have wings, one way or the other.

    But yeah, mane or heads would be nice, like Panthor as you mention.

    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    A longbow with arrow would be cool.

    Since it's tough to pose him exactly right with his bow, I'd be cool with a longbow or an alt version of his current bow with an attached arrow and fixed drawn pullstring.

    I think there should only be two bucks, The Swift Wind buck with the long mane and Filmation Arrow with the mohawk mane.

    Now my take on this is that I think since their are so many steeds in POP, that to use the existing media to give all the members of the great rebellion a steed, as their aren't many left to give one to. Heres my take on it.

    the obvious
    Bow with Filmation Arrow
    Peekablue with Moonbeam or Give it to Tallstar
    Sweet Bee with Sundancer or Give it to Starla
    Jewelstar could ride Crystal Swiftwind(working name Crystal Cloud Breaker)
    That way the star sister are riding the Cyrstal hosres which makes more sense. Now I know some people might not want that since is goes against what came out in the 2 packs, so its just a suggestion.

    then
    Angella on working name Seraph

    Starla or Peekablue with the Unicorn King

    Castaspella Horse (Worlking name Incantor)

    Glimmers Horse (Hope ?)

    Frosta with Winter

    Tallstar or Sweet Bee could use Brightwing, 2nd in command of the Unicorns

    Double Trouble could use StarWing, Swift winds Mate

    Even the Red Knight could use the Arrow buck for his horse, confusingly known as the Black Steed


    Flutterina, Mermista, and Perfuma have steeds, but they are not horses
    Flutterina with Butterflyer
    Mermista with Sea Harp
    Perfuma could use Enchanta


    I don't think they need to make Silver storm or Royal swift wind, But they could make the Toy (Pink) version of Swift wind(Working name Whirlwind) and Arrow(working name Victory) and give them to Spinnerella and Netossa

    Also Shadow Weaver was supposed to have a horse named Smoke in on episode but never made the final cut


    Also Since Catra already had a steed, Clawdeen, I always felt like Storm should belong to Entrapta

    They could also use the horse buck to make Charger, Teela's Unicorn

    The robot horses from MOTU.

    And Shadow Master, Kol-darr's Horse,
    Thunderhorse is to Eternia, much like Shadowfax is to Middle Earth, so either The Goddess or the Sorcerress could ride him


    So in looking at all these different horses, They fall into one of two different bucks:
    Swiftwind buck
    Storm
    Crystal Moonbeam
    Crystal Sundancer
    Crystal Swiftwind
    Unicorn King
    Brightwing
    Starwing
    Winter
    Glimmers Horse, Hope?
    Toy (pink) Swiftwind
    Toy Arrow
    Smoke ( I imagine if they ever did make Smoke, It would be a translucent gray like the crystal horses)

    Thunderhorse
    Angella's Horse (working name Serpah)

    And the Arrow buck
    Filmation Arrow
    Castaspella's Horse
    Black Steed
    Robot Horse
    Shadowmaster
    the last 2 are the same except one has wings

    I think that Night stalker and Stridor would need a new buck.

    This is the first time I've seen a picture of Winter. Not what I imagined to be honest, I'd prefer these colours for Winter:

    POP HORSES in MOTUC

    Original Toy Swifwind and Animation version are very different (same with Arrow). MOTUC is a new continuity so:


    STARWING - SwiftWinds┤ mate, based on a mix of Filmation and Vintage SwiftWind Toy.
    Pink Body, Golden Wings




    ARROW must split on 2 characters:

    ARROW - Bow┤s sted, based on Filmation (No wings, Add KOWL as a BONUS figure)

    VICTORY - Netossa┤s sted, based on Vintage Arrow Toy.

    Id be happy to have a Toy accurate SW released under another name. but the subbers would scream from the rafters!

    I dont see the issue with variants being new characters (BGT for EG) as long as we get the versions we want! the name on the card means nothing!

    but Arrow needs to be Blue with wings! Thats my line in the sand!
    Dear Mattel, Please remember you are one of the biggest toy companies on the planet, So hows about making toys people want and NOT Excuses.

    I honestly don't see how any horse variants that aren't Spirit or Swiftwind will sell in this line, but maybe that's just me?

    Even Starwing...I know who the character is, but have little interest in putting down 30 bucks to own one. And I'm a She-Raver!

    I think SOME horses have a good chance of being released (and desired by fans). Arrow and Teela's golden unicorn have been mentioned a lot on here. Maybe Catra's horse Storm too.

    I personally am not drawn to buying too many beasts because of space constraints; Same reason I'm passing on all vehicles.

    No Swift Wind variants for me, please.
    And I really am rooting for the classic PoP toy version of Arrow for Bow. I mean, look at the toy and Filmation cartoon- there's no contest. That brown turd can't be made into a toy and be called "Arrow" and have a place on my shelf!
    At least when they do Storm, it's actually going to BE Storm, as there is not any conflicting look for Catra's horse (I don't consider Silver Storm to be that radical of a departure from the original and would be satisfied with either a silver Storm or a regular white Storm).

    I love Filmation Arrow.

    However we have Teela and we have Battleground Teela. In that vein you can release Filmation Arrow as Arrow and blue winged toy Arrow as Arrow 2.0. Then in the bio just note something about Light Hope granting Arrow a "power-up" in order to help Bow save She-Ra or something. Doesn't have to be deep or anything, and everyone gets the version they want and both are valid.

    Angella had a horse in Golden book "Glimmer of Hope",as well as the Shadowfax of Eternia,Thunder Horse, and a pic of Shadow weavers horse Smoke, who is actually the captured soul of Spirit's Mom.
