    Etheria Map Official Discussion

    At SDCC there was a slide of the Etheria map. Anyone have an image of it? Anyone know the details on it?

    I was looking for the same thing. The best thing I've found is a great HD quality video on youtube of Mattypalooza. The only things I can really make out is Beast Island (I think) and the Crystal Castle.

    I see a bunch of stuff, Valley of the Lost, Meadowlands...even Horror Hall. It's not too dissimilar to the Crystal Castle table map.

    We need someone with a really big magnifying glass to list the names of everything on there. I want to see how many things from the Filmation series is on there!

    Is that Frosta's Castle Chill in the polar ice area up there?

    I know jack**** about POP outside of Filmation, but aren't those locations Filmation locations?

    I think the white castle is Frosta's Kingdom. And they merged the Filmation Fright Zone with the toy Fright Zone?

    Yeah, they can most likely use a lot of places that we are familiar with because of Filmation since they are on the original toy map.

    This is the biggest scan of that I could find off hand:

    Does that seem nothing like planet-sized to anyone else? I realise there's a fair degree of exaggeration in the individual features, but Castle Brightmoon looks bigger than Britain... (repeat, not the kingdom, the Castle). They should have created a load of new stuff to fill the map out if need be - right now, it looks like the area of the Horde's rule was maybe a quarter of the map. Tops.

    I'm sure I've seen this map before, that rendering of the Fright Zone looks familiar. Was this in a coloring book or something?

    Etheria and Eternia both seem too small in their maps though. If Eternia is Earth sized, then Castle Grayskull and the Palace of Eternia look like they're as far apart as Buenos Aires and Chicago, and Snake Mountain's in Tibet, but He-Man strides around to all of them regularly (I guess Battle Cat is just that good a runner). Etheria seems a little worse though for some reason.

    I can't really add much to this, but I did zoom in a little on the top left area of the map while it was on screen. Sorry I couldn't get any better focus, it was only up for a moment.

    I have an old She-Ra coloring book, and it has most of the places named exactly the same way. What I can make out is:

    Castle Chill: Kingdom of Snows
    Valley of the Lost
    Meadow Lands
    Skull Path
    Beast Island
    Horror Hall (Not in the coloring book, I thought this was Filmation. You know who resides there)
    Fright Zone
    Scorpion Hill
    Crimson Waste
    Whispering Woods
    Mystacor
    Crystal Castle
    Singing River
    Talon Mountain
    Growling Sea

    I can't make out two right under the Crysatl Castle. ON the coloring book map they are Thaymore and The Kingdom of Brightmoon (that just looks like forest here though).

    I am definitely surprised by Horror Hall being included.

    I think the map is cool. The scale is weird, but it's more of an illustrated piece than an accurate cartography (well, obviously, I suppose!) I actually got the Eternia Map on Ebay the other day (I was more interested in it than Wun-Dar, frankly) for not much money just because I'd like to have all the maps.

    Horror Hall and Scorian Hill (the bases of Shadow Weaver and Scorpia, respectively) are both on the map sticker that came with the vintage Crystal Castle posted by Shadow above.

    It's funny though, because Mattel can't make figures of either character...but they could make their bases as playsets.

    This is the map from the coloring book. I just want to add that the colored page was done a very long time ago, and not when I was stoned in my late 20s.

    silly me I'm looking at the map thinking, "okay I see castle Bright Moon, there's the Whispering Woods, and there's the Crystal Castle where's Mysticor?"

    Then I realize what I thought was Castle Bright Moon is Mystocor and apparently the Crystal Castle and Castle Bright Moon are merged as one.

    I didn't realize it was on that Crystal Castle map, I looked at it more closely. They have Hunga's base too, but she's another one they can't make.

    Yeah, I just noticed Brightmoon is merged with the Crystal Castle on that original Castle map of Etheria too.

    Oooo...interesting! Good colouring job, too, by the way.

    Is it just me, or does "Mysticore" on the new map, look like Filmation Castle Brightmoon?

    EDIT: I found another good pic:

    AH!!

    You're right!!

    I hadn't really looked at this map. I want to know what's at the top of the mountain where Horror Hall is labeled.

    Well, it's an updated on the toy map, not based on the cartoon. Odds are those locations were either not thought out when the Crystal Castle playset was developed or were not considered important enough.

    But the crystal Falls is a Mattel play set, so surely that should have been included, it's the home of Mermista.
