    I understand that there is some demand for her - but not for me. I want more characters, not the same ones again and again. if they do create a new Teela then i hope it is MYP or even the new DC52 version, just soemthing to make her different.

    I do think you will see a new Teela soon though... but in her sorceress guise.

    If MOTUC had an unlimited budget and unlimited SKUs I would say, sure, bring on a new Teela variant. I think there's definitely justification for making a new version of Teela. Teela 1.0 was an early figure, and there's a lot of improvements that could be made, while also giving fans that missed out on her an opportunity to add her to their collection. Also, a more Filmation accurate Teela has merit as well, we should get both!

    That being said, I would rather see every vintage figure, concept, mini-comic character, and 4HM fever dream made before wasting a slot on a rehash. We have a Teela, it's time to move on.

    I'd take a Teela 2.0 over Illumina, the NA Scientists, or... man. Out of what's left? I would rather have a Green Comic Trapjaw (which I am in no rush to get) or if they could think of something cool like Bubble Power She Ra (which is really She Ra 2.0) but I cant think of anything to add to her to make her fresh. I mean when the line started and we got a He-Man 2.0 and a Skelly 2.0 (though as I recall not much on Bone Head changed) that's fine.

    But this far in? Meh. Unless they got real cool variant wise.

    heck, give me her Unicorn. I'll put Battleground Teela on it and call it a day.

    I just got Battleground Evil-Lyn in a trade recently and noticed something that should apply to Teela (and those clamoring for a 2.0 version of her).

    If the forearms for BG Evil-Lyn were re-tooled to include rotating bracelets, why would they ONLY use them on BG Evil-Lyn? This line is ALL ABOUT re-using parts. Matty has LOTS of upgrades they can implement to make Teela 2.0 happen! Here is a short list of things Mattel fixed after Teela's release...

    - neck post no longer a bobble head
    - female 2.0 crotch
    - boots re-tooled for female 2.0 body
    - bracelets can rotate for vintage style or corrected display

    With these fixes already in place, the opportunity to throw a Filmation Teela head in the package, and fans clamoring for a Teela re-release since she's a CORE character, WHY NOT make a Teela 2.0??? I really hope this isn't a ball Mattel is going to drop. If we have to be patient a little while longer, I'm ok with that. I just want to add Teela to my collection without spending $100 for her.
    Take it easy,

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.

    It depends, which character would we have to sacrifice?
    If it's a heavy hitter like Extendar, Rio Blast, or Two Bad, then the answer is obviously no.

    But I would definitely prefer an improved Teela over, for example, Rotar (sorry, Penny Dreadful! ) or some of the remaining He-Man/Skeletor variants.

    Mattel may have to start doing some 2.0 variants of the A list characters if they line is still going by 2016, and all they have left to make are D-list Galactic Guardians & Space Mutants.

    So Battleground Teela wasn't Teela 2.0 then . No way to Teela 2.0, Teela 1.0 is just fine.

    New characters not already in the line please.

    I thought Scott said Battleground Teela (Blond bikini Teela) was Teela 2.0 so maybe you are looking for Teela 3.0 which we probably will never see.

    No. BG Teela is just a variant. She's not Teela 2.0, in the same way that the upcoming New Adventures He-Man isn't He-Man 2.0.

    A real Teela 2.0 would be more like Bubble Power She-Ra, allowing us the option of swapping parts from the original version onto the new body to create the ultimate Teela figure.

    There are more than enough reasons and ways to make her happen.....

    But what you guys overlook, Teela 2.0 would not take a "New" character slot at all, she would be a variant (BP She-Ra) and take the variant slot....variants by definition are not new characters....So unless it was Filmation Hordak that got bumped for her, then I don't care personally.

    But it's ass if they get Spirit Hordak out, King He-Man and all those non Vintage ones, yet not find a way to get the most iconic version of Hordak for Filmation & POP fans, which is most different enough from the regular Hordak to get done.

    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Double Trouble, Light Hope, Filmation Hordak & Clawful

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Yes, I would prefer Teela 2.0, Beast-Man 2.0, and Fisto 2.0 over any new characters which haven't been done yet, most of which I have to Google anyway. I won't spend $100 on a MOTUC figure, so it's like they don't exist to me.

    Sorry, i am all for a Teela 2.0 but not at the cost of a new character. We already have 2 versions of her. I'd happily buy a 200X version of N52 but as an out of sub extra like Bubble Power She-Ra

    It wouldn't be instead of the most popular and important characters which aren't done yet, it would be instead of an F-lister. They would drop the LEAST important character for her, not the most.

    I don't get why people think she would take a slot from a new figure....she would be a variant, there are no new Variants....yeah, there are a few wanted ones like FF He-Man....Filmation Hordak....but Teela 2.0 would take a Variant slot, not a regular monthly sub slot.
