    Horse or Unicorn for Teela's Steed?

    If they make Teela's steed from the first four mini-comics for MOTUC would you want it to be a horse or a unicorn?

    Two of the first four mini-comics show it as a horse and one of the four show it to be a unicorn and in one it does not appear at all.

    I would have to say a horse as the steed- thats what she had in the ladybird books here in the UK

    Though if we could get a sky sled for her that would be even better

    Horse? Unicorn? Bah!

    I say they re-paint the Gy-Gor/Shadow Beast in black and white and give Teela the steed she deserves: Pan-Dah!

    I would probably go with Unicorn, with the horn sculpted directed onto the head, since I'm guessing Swift Wind will have his horn as part of the armor. That way it wont be just a simple repaint of a POP horse.

    Its been a while since I've read them but her horse appears in "Castle Grayskull under attack" seen on page34-35 here http://www.he-man.org/publishing/ite...09&image=14279 and I believe also in "A Trap for He-Man but there isnt any scans from that book on the .org databse

    I will have to double check if there are any more

    I would actually prefer a choice, like with Swift Wind. Best to give the horse a removable unicorn horn for the top of it's head so the collector can display it whichever way they want.

    Unicorn all the way! In the very first mini-comic, they even say unicorn charger. I always believed "Charger" was the name of the unicorn...but it's probably just a title "unicorn charger."

    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    A charger is "a medieval war horse, such as the destrier, courser or rouncey". Charger would be a good name for him since he never got one.

    It's kind of funny that on page 26 of the "He-Man and the Power Sword" mini-comic they refer to it as "a snow-white unicorn" when clearly it is not white in any of the pictures.

    On page 8 of "the Vengeance of Skeletor" mini-comic it is called a horse and the picture has it without a horn.

    In the mini-comic "Battle in the Clouds" it is shown to be a horse in a picture but is not refered to as anything.

    No hard choice for me, unicorn all the way.
    My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.

    I chose Horse - Unicorn doesn't scream "Warrior Goddess" to me. It doesn't mean the horse isn't a special horse like Shadowfax.

    Jack L. Chalker, in his River of the Dancing Gods books, describes unicorns as vicious carnivores who will attack at the slightest provocation.

    I like the idea of a more typical horse that would offer Mattel the basis for other equine mounts in the future, but then a unicorn pushes it just a bit futher into the realm of the fantastic. I think either a horse or unicorn would work out well and most people would be pleased with the results.

    Perhaps the Four Horseman/Mattel could always make the horn removable and include 2 slightly different bridles. One bridle with a cover piece that replaces the horn and the other without the cover piece so it fits around the horn.

    Sounds interesting, like the biting fairies in Labrynth. I still don't think carnivoreous unicorns fit in as the stead of a Warrior Goddess. However, I lean closer to the traditional ideas of a Unicorn, like the Last Unicorn.

    I voted for horse, but would be fine with a unicorn. Maybe with a removable horn? But either way I'd be happy.
    I'm glad to see this thread...Teela needs her steed!

    Meh, a Unicorn seems redundant at this point, with SwiftWind. But that's not to say that I'd want a horse either.

    With the various choices of vehicles in MOTU, riding horses just seems rather passe' at this point.
    200X Power Sword, 200X Toon, 200X Continuity.... Yeah, it's all about 200X!!

    This is easy...Golden Steed with Unicorn head or Horse Head.

    It's called a horse on page 8.

    I think Teela's unicorn/horse makes Swiftwind look even more spectacular. Swiftwind is a unicorn with wings, while Teela's horse is a normal unicorn.

    I think horses and steeds make MOTU seem more ancient. Especially if vehicles are rare technological artifacts, dug up from the Great Wars in your MOTU. Think Thundarr or even Visionaries, but there's only one Battle Ram, one Wind Raider, one Roton, etc., instead of whole fleets of them.
