    I do like the cardback though, like those are the characters who would've been involved with the storyline. I stated in another thread, the word "dies" is not in there, so I am using "overtook" with lose interpretations.
    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.

    I voted 2 under the assumption the Sorceress dies.

    If the Sorceress LIVES and is turned evil, or into TRON world, I would have voted 5. If this bio explained her garb (did the Sorceress give it to her, why long blonde hair?), I would have probably given it an 8.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    It's OK. Nothing spectacular, but nothing to get worked up over in my opinion.

    It is new, Original and daring.
    MOTUC should get its own story.
    Love it.

    I voted 4.

    I like that it´s finally starting to become a real story and not only bios from the past but as everyone has mentioned already, the bio doesn´t really fit the figure.

    The idea is great but the time and place is not very well chosen...

    Or maybe it was. Who knows

    I give them credit for moving the story forward, but I knock them for having a bio that doesn't match the figure at all (Why is she called Battleground Teela?), but moreso I knock the bio for not being grammatically correct:

    Quote Originally Posted by Battleground Teela Bio
    After being wounded by King Hssss' venom, the Sorceress of Grayskull knew her time was short. She quickly arranged a mission with Teela to the Elder's training citadel in the Polar Ice Cap. Here, the Sorceress revealed Teela's true heritage, that she was secretly her magically clonded daughter and destined to become the next guardian of the Castle Grayskull and its secrets! Although in a state of disbelief, Teela knew in her heart that her mother spoke the truth, and trained with the Sorceress until the venom overtook her. Returning to Grayskull as the new guardian, Teela uses her new magic to protect the Power of Grayskull and guard the safety of all Eternians.
    Sentence agreement please. Like subjects and verbs, pronouns and antecedents (the words to which they refer) must agree. If you set up the sentence to use her to refer to Teela, you suddenly can't change it to mean the Sorceress, unless the bio is supposed to imply that Teela is overtaken by venom.
    Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!

    I think it's okay. The reason I feel that way is because the bio doesn't even address WHY she's dressed the way she is! It talks about something else seemingly unrelated in Teela's time line.

    Of course though, since some fans have speculated that maybe this is Teela's training garb for becoming the Sorceress that this is what Mattel will run with. I hope this isn't what they're gonna say because she shouldn't be called "Battleground Teela" if that's the case. She'd be "Sorceress in Training Teela".

    It's a good thing the figure looks so good!

    Maybe Benedict has a code of honor and only dead "guys" is a good thing?

    Card back wise I'd replace Carnivus with King Hiss myself.

    To me, all the good guys are already dead or going to die. I don't need any publicated text telling me that. It's already fact as far as I'm concerned.

    Well, my code is in Pascal so few people can understand it...

    Hssss will probably be on the Sorceress's card back "if and when" Matty stops finding ways to delay her *snicker*

    I'm not sure how Carnivus would fit in there, but part of the fun(for me) has been figuring it out, perhaps he is one of the trainers or something...

    Honestly, how should one rate this particular bio? I had a hard time, and chose a middle-of-the-road "5". I like that the story is advanced further and has given us lots to discuss, but at the same time I feel that the bio doesn't match the figure. Someone said she looks more "sword than sorcery" which I agree with. Why does Teela need to change into THIS particular look to quickly learn how to do magic?

    Love the figure, though!

    10! I love the Bio, though it seems as though it has little to do with the figure itself. I also like the notion of this being Teela's Preternian look, traveling back in time with or after Adam.
    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

    Was there only one Elder? If not, there's a misplaced apostrophe in "Elder's training citadel".

    Magically cloned??? No passion of Grayskull and his wife? No story of the wounded soldier? Seems a very cold start to life. Gave it a low rating.
