She never really had a chance, just like Illumina in that vote Mattel did. He-Man, She-Ra & Skeletor should have been givens. The are the three cornerstone characters of this brand, totally linked to the purpose of Castle Grayskull. If She-Ra is not on this box art it's a bloody disgrace and Mattel should be ashamed of themselves. There is Not one element for She-Ra and her fans in this deal, a cardboard cut out of the doorway to Etheria would have been some kind of reprsentation. She draws half of Grayskull's power and calls upon the name of Grayskull for good sake!!!!!

PRO CLASSIC POP TOY DESIGN ELEMENTS BEING USED IN MOTUC TO COMPLEMENT THE FILMATION DESIGNS!!!!
I FULLY SUPPORT THE INCLUSION OF ILLUMINA IN MOTUC!!!!!
IF YOUR SICK OF WAITING FOR A LIGHT TO APPEAR AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, STRIDE DOWN THERE AND LIGHT THE BLOODY THING YOURSELF!!!!!!!
She-Ra is not constantly on Eternia defending Grayskull from Skeletor. Come to think of it, has She-Ra ever been on Eternia and protected Grayskull from anyone in media?
If anything, I'd expect to see She-Ra on the Fright Zone or Crystal Castle boxart. Maybe even the Slime Pit.
I'm not really surprised about She-Ra, though I am disappointed. I voted for her. Probably every single figure that was on the original Grayskull box is a given plus a few others. Actually, I think it is all but certain that only characters from the first two waves of MOTU figures will be there. In fairness, the Castle is originally from that era of figure releases. In sadness, there remain people who will not embrace She-Ra as a MOTU character. I think in the long term, MOTUC will go a long way to fixing that because of its merging of POP, MOTU, and NA. Unfortunately, we live today.
FWIW, I voted for:
Teela (or maybe Orko, can't remember for sure on this one)
Man at Arms
Sorry NA fans, I like the new NA figures but could not justify any of them as being core enough for this item. Though one could say that NA He-Man and NA Skeletor are there in their pre-NA forms.
Mattel should be ashamed? Lol
Weren't the fans voting the characters featured on the boxart? Blame your fellow He-Fans
I'm not a friend of many things Mattel did with this toyline, but this one was caused by the majority of the fans.

enjoying era wars
Are there any POP or Horde figures on the box?
I voted for:
Eternos Palace Randor
Battle Armor Randor
Rodnar, Evil Robot Double of Randor
Crystal Sea Vacation in super-cool Hawaiian shirt Randor
Queen Marlena disguise Randor
Rowdy Roddy Randor
so don't blame me.
check out my artwork at geooco.blogspot.com
just my opinion.
Castle Grayskull will likely be the only play set we get in Classic, so I can see where folks would be ultra disappointed that She-Ra's not being featured on the box art. I'm not feeling TOO gutted at the moment; the sentiment is more of a growing annoyance at the glaring flaws with the actual voting system/polls where it relates to the Princess of Power property. POP has never had a chance at a relaunch to help stimulate growth in the fan base, so in no way, shape or form should Mattel be considering the playing field to be anything close to being level when they put certain votes to the fans. From the Mattel end of it, they have shown that factors such as historical impact and supporting materials play a significant role in this toy line, so far as getting certain characters into the line. Why is this not part of the methodology when they're making these decisions? I don't know if that means giving She-Ra +5000 votes right off the bat or what. But the thought that's running through my mind is: "It shouldn't be this easy to cancel out She-Ra."
"My favorite Harry Potter movie is Troll."
Another topic where "She-Ra" drops in to cause divisiveness... don't you get it? Most fans DON'T like POP! You THINK she is a cornerstone but she is not. ONLY here on the Org do you folks feel that way. TG and the 4 Horsemen are more biased towards MOTU. You'd think youd get that by now.

By the ancients!!!
Lich Leech feedback thread
I ♥ He-Man.org!
I don't understand why some would be angry that She-Ra isn't on the Castlye Grayskull box art. Upset or disappointed? Fine, but remember that this was a fan vote and I believe most people associate He-Man and Masters of the Universe with CG, not She-Ra and her gang. Doesn't she have the Crystal Castle?
What I don't understand is how people are missing the bigger issue here. Crita isn't on the box!!! What the hell man? You mean to tell me that ONE vote wasn't enough????
Also, He-Dude, in an article about "10 Science Fiction TV Spin-offs That Are Great in their Own Right", She-Ra ranked #9. I'd say that makes her pretty popular outside the .org fandom. Xena also ranked #2, and the creators have said her character was based off of She-Ra. Here's the full list (I don't think I can post the article here):
10. Stargate Atlantis
9. She-Ra: Princess of Power
8. Ashes to Ashes
6. Mork and Mindy
4. Batman Beyond
3. Avatar: The Legend of Korra
2. Xena Warrior Princess
1. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
She-Ra's also talked about FREQUENTLY at other pop culture sites. During the 2012 Superbowl when Madonna put on her show a LOT of people thought she looked like She-Ra. So many, that "She-Ra" was trending on Twitter (which takes hundreds of thousands of people to make something trend. Everyone participating in Tallstar's MOTUC event couldn't get MOTUC to trend. ). Also, He-Man was trending because of the commercial he starred in. That was a pretty cool night.
Finally, Despera (aka "She-Ra) is the single most popular character in the entirety of the new MOTU, DC Comics. Teela is hated by the vast, vast majority (for example). She-Ra's doing pretty well for herself in the new media (thus far).
Fans like PoP. PoP characters keep reaching the top spots for requested figures in MOTUC. In the one poll, 5 out of the top 10 were PoP (Scorpia, Glimmer, Queen Angella, Madame Razz and Sea Hawk).

Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.
You can join the Illumina Facebook page here!
Some people hate it but I love how DC is bringing Adora into the fold, but I know a lot of purists don't want to see that. funny thing PoP enthusiasts say PoP is better because the rebellion etc is darker territory, but it was rarely played that way...in the DC stories they are playing that darkness BIG. to me that fits in better.
Anyway if she-ra is NOT on the boxart I will empathize with her fans but for me it's not a big deal.
Must Haves before MOTUC is complete! QUEEN ANGELLA! Mermista, Peekablue, Filmation Kowl, Imp, Lookee, Madame Razz Scorpia Blade, Gwildor, Saurod Flogg, Sagitar, Crita, Mara
Holding out for Spinnerella, Angella, Double Trouble and Entrapta!!!
