    I think it has to do with The Obelisk mini-comic.
    In it Sorceress had the Teela boots:


    Maybe they'll put it up to vote as too which boots we want the final figure to have?
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.

    According to what Pixel Dan wrote on Twitter, they are in fact Teela's boots to match the mini comic better.

    Thought so. Now the only question, or rather questions, is will TOD Sorceress come with Teela's boots outright, will Matty put it too a vote, or will they be actually removable (a first in the line).

    EDIT: Never mind. I just read Pixel's Twitter page. She'll have Teela's boots and they are non-removable.

    not a bad choice to make for a change. Plus it makes her a bit different from the regular release than just repainting.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I agree, this changes her up a bit. I wonder if the boots made for The Sorceress will get reused, since they are not even on the variant. Maybe if they do a NA Sorceress.

    I am also happy with the Sorceress boot change. Besides being Obelisk-accurate, the Teela boots are more detailed which is important when a figure is almost solid white! I'm loving TOD Sorceress more and more.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    She is going to be at New York Comic Con (NYCC) not New York Toy Fair (NYTF), confusing I know, as well as PowerCon.

    They could include both boots; all the boots like that are "interchangeable" with a hot water boil and pop. Did so easily with She-Ra 2.0's boots and arms to get a better toy based She-Ra with the version 1 body.

    If it had to be a choice, I agree with using the Teela boots; not only more accurate, but, as has been pointed out, the details look better with the solid white.

    First time it will be offered is Power Con, then a few weeks later at NYCC, then whatever is left will be sold on Matty at the end of the year.

    Also if there are any international fans, she will be available at German GRAYSKULL-CON even before Power-Con.

    I don't know why everyone is expecting her to be $20, when all other figures are $22

    She will be sold at German Grayskull Con, BUT you have to preorder and pay for her in advance (she will be 30 Euros)

    Funny considering they said she would be on sale at conventions THROUGHOUT the year.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Technically, Grayskull Convention is the first time she'll be offered. Then what you said above in that order.

    First look up: http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/m...-tod-sorceress

    Overall very nice. Not sure I'm crazy about the way the orb-holder looks now. I like the more subtle paint scheme. But it's still cool.

    I think the contrast is a little off in those pics... the sample they had at SDCC was a regular production sample, and the stand, though slightly different color-wise than the original sneak-peak at SDCC 2011, wasn't as dark as in these AFI pics.

    I'm curious about how the sale will go at Power Con. Will it just be a free-for-all? Will it be a huge line the first morning? Will there be a lottery? A timed ticketing thing?
