    Why do all the POP figures have open mouths? Except Catra and Jewelstar

    I don't understand even with She-ra, all the POP figures (now with Frosta even) have their mouths open. Catra and Jewelstar are the only two to not have open mouths.

    Is there a reason for this? Why do the POP characters always have open mouth sculpts?

    That's a loaded question if I've ever seen one.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Well it would seem that all of them do not then if the 2 you listed don't and neither does Bow?

    I'm not a huge fan of the "parted lips" look either.

    It's not a "smile". It's not a ferocious "grimace". And it's not a fear-inducing "war cry". It's just a strange open-mouth look.

    Maybe all the female members of The Great Rebellion have the flu and, as such, they have to breathe through their mouths since their noses are blocked with mucus?

    I really do wish they would stop with the "open mouth" look. It looks very good on a couple of the characters we've got. Some, it's given them a "duh" look...where they're standing confused...with their mouths open. It's just best to avoid that, in my opinion. I prefer non-teeth showing figures (smile or battle cry).

    I believe it's a direct reference to how they were drawn in Filmation a lot of the time.

    Huh?

    Ok Bow Catra and Jewelstar don't have their mouths open, the rest of the POP girls all have their teeth showing. None of the He-man women have their teeth showing.

    It is funny that none of the MOTU females have the mouths slightly open like the POP girls. I didn't care too much for it on Adora, then She-ra, then two of the Star Sisters. Is this how to determine who is POP is by their mouths LMAO. I don't remember the original toys having these slight open mouthed face sculpts.

    MATTEL please NO MORE OPEN MOUTHS ON POP! Give Frosta a closed mouth.

    They're congested, and have to breathe through their mouths.

    Uh... I'm not even going to go there as this is a child friendly forum.
    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.

    Um. Have you seen the Sorceress?

    Some male figures (most notably He-Man) also have parted lips, so let's not turn this into a gender thing.
