    Barbie as MOTUC figure?

    Ok, this may seem like an outlandish idea, but think about it... it could potentially generate a HUGE amount of interest in the line!

    Its not like Barbie would have to be wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag or anything, she could be decked out in Barbarian attire (or a nice little floss bikini with fishnet stockings! )... but the simple fact of having a Barbie figure in the line could produce a groundswell of interest and would probably make the Mattel executives happy. So what do you think?

    lol

    Uuuuuh...that's a creative idea to say the least.

    I don't know that it would really go over that well.

    If anything I think they would make She-Ra in Barbie form and He-Man in Ken form.

    I want Lion-o as a MOTUC figure too. Optimus Prime as well. Maybe Spider-man. Ninja Turtles would be cool. Ohh and Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    I FREAKING LOVE THIS IDEA!!! Sadly it's something that would not be considered popular on these lands... I also support a PoP Barbie in the same way that the PoP Polly Pocket figs were made.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Come on now, that's just plain silly. Barbie is a Mattel property, the others are not.

    ...but that would be pretty sweet too.

    I think there should definitely be a "Barbie as She-Ra" doll made one day.

    If it is a success, then they should also consider making Catra, The Sorceress, Teela and Evil-Lynn. The "Monsters High" dolls seem to do well and they're not the standard "pretty blonde in a ballgown" kind of doll. I imagine a "fantasy warrioress" line of Barbies could also do quite well. If they did really well, then it would be good to see a "Ken as He-Man" and a "Ken as Bow" as well.

    As it would only involve new "clothes" and a few larger scale plastic weapons, I would have also thought it would be a fairly cheap investment for Mattel. New head-sculpts would be great, but I'm guessing they would have a sufficient "catalogue" to choose one that would suit "She-Ra", especially as the original toy has a very "doll like" head-sculpt.

    I would be very much opposed to incorporating Barbie into MOTUC in any way.

    On the other hand, I would HIGHLY support any MOTUC influences in the Barbie line, most specifically She-Ra as Barbie like you're all discussing. They made a Cyndi Lauper Barbie (along with some other 80's rockers) and it came out fantastic!
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    barbie as She-ra? yeah I think I'd get that, if she looks Filmation, sure.

    The whole idea is a bit embarrassing though, I'd try to not let my brother know, or pretty much anybody IRL.
    When it comes to She-ra Princess of Power characters, FILMATION is the way to go!.

    Well that's nice, but are you a man or a woman?. As a man, it's a bit harder for me to explain :-p

    Oh well, you know, it takes a lot of confidence to display a She-ra barbie and not feel less manly

    I never understood why they never made a true Barbie She-ra. She would be a good seller.

    That aside I would never ever buy myself a barbie, even if it was She-ra.
