    Honestly, the hair color bothers me less than the wholy unrecognizable outfit in the digital comics. Let's face it, the blonde hair is not the key reason many of us are confused about whether it is actually her or She-Ra being represented. The outfit doesn't really look like either, and I'm not entirely sure why this one is such a huge departure from what has been established, while all the other designs are at least recognizable as the character portrayed.

    I have liked both the blonde and ginger representations, so, I guess my vote is "either."

    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.

    Blonde or Red, doesn't matter. I like both, and wish everybody did. Right now I kind of feel like I have to support blonde, just b/c of the irrational hate. I wish people would just get over it tbh.

    I probably automatically think of her as a red head because of the Filmation influence. However I display her as a blonde in my collection, I loved that look in the early mini comics. That is my preferred look.

    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    What hate? I don't see any hate, just preference. Why does there have to be hate, just because someone prefers something a certain way over something else, it's all in what we are used to seeing, and Teela is a red head in most MOTU media and toys.

    Teela is a Red Head. Between the vintage toy and Filmation that is the Teela ingrained in my brain. I liked the mini comics as a kid but I never really cared for the color changes....I figured it was just people colored them wrong....like when you take liberties in a coloring book. (I painted the duck blue cause I've never seen a blue duck and I wanted to know what one looked like). Anyway, TIRH!

    TIBH = Teela is Blonde Haired

    Do we REALLY need a thread to know that most of the fans like a red haired Teela? As cliche as it sounds, alot of the fans grew up with Filmation and the original toy. Those fans either missed the early period where she was a blonde or they prefer the redhead better. I'm fine with that, however I am glad that her blonde incarnation is getting some more exposure nowadays after an almost 30 year absence. A few years of Blonde Teela is a drop in the bucket compared to almost 3 decades of redhaired Teela.

    I think we can have two looks for Teela in MOTU. Every MOTU woman has multiple looks after all: Evil-Lyn has two different skin and costume colors, Marlena is a redhead in a green dress or a brunette in a white dress and the Sorceress has a look for every era from Zoar costume to sci-fi spacesuit to an Egyptian costume.

    Dude, blonde Teela didn't win Mr. Shokoti's poll back when Battleground Teela was announced. I KNOW Blonde Teela fans are as much of a minority as fans who prefer the Pre-Filmation Era.

    Red hair. I loved the original figure very much and I LOVED that there was a lead female with a more unique hair colour. You don't really see that a whole lot (or, you didn't back then). My Teela figure had BROWN hair, by the way.

    Anyway, the only reason I do not like Teela having blonde hair, is because She-Ra has blonde hair and is He-Man's twin. Then, we have THREE blonde haired heroes with blue eyes. It's very, very strange in a line that is all about diversity and weird ass creatures. It's a bit of the Aryan Race thing going on...

    It also creates confusion over who the heck she is. Is she Teela? Is she She-Ra? I mean, average people have a hard enough time figuring out RED haired Teela isn't She-Ra. If it was kept consistent, I think it would greatly help MOTU as a brand and not confuse so many people.

    I still believe New Adventures Teela was based on She-Ra, because the person who came up with the design thought She-Ra was Teela.
