    Honestly....this MOTU She-Ra just looks ugly to me. Sad but true. Her stance, her proportions, her face, that dinky cape, the hard skirt...

    ....it's a real shame they didn't try to make a Filmation accurate She-Ra in the style of the Vintage POP figures, with fabric and rooted hair. That's always been the dream for me anyways.

    I finally picked a figure from this line last week and She-Ra was the first one. I agree she is ugly, however I really think if she had been included in the MOTU vintage line to match Teela and Evil-Lyn - this is what she would have looked like. I think she looks fairly authentic, in a 80s/vintage style.

    I haven't opened her, after all the horror stories regarding QC in this wave, I've kept her carded, I think she looks great like that.

    While Iíve doubled down on Funkoís 5.5s (cheaper to start with and the new Target Primal Age figures fixed the engineering issues; best 5.5s Iíve ever owned), the QC on the Super7 figures has scared me off.

    Mattel has been teasing their own plans for 5.5s (Faker, Adam, He-Man, Slime Pit, Anti-Eternia) at SDCC and PowerCon last year. It looks to be a shrunken retro tool of the 12 inch giants, possibly with a nylon leg band and a peg to lock the figures standing if so. If Mattel announces those at Toy Fair next week, Iím in.

    I appreciate the design of S7ís (not a fan of He-Man or She-Raís head sculpts) but they didnít improve QC enough in their second release. Funko meanwhile fixed Primal Ageís issues in their second release (just 3 months later) and they wound up being more sturdy and satisfying to me than actual vintage figures. It helped for me that Funkoís figures were closer to $10 than $20 and was enough to convince me to hunt down and repurchase the whole first wave.

    Am I reading correctly? That wave 1 will be re-issued. With better hip joints?

    Also,now that Brandon has left Mattel,my hopes for motu there are about zero now,so super7 really needs the QC to be way better.

    Wave 1 WAS the improvement from the 2 packs.

    Iím gonna cross my fingers Funko gets the 87 movie license. They seem to have addressed QC issues now and about 90% of their 5.5s are WB properties. I believe the 87 movie merch rights are at WB. And WB hasnít shown a willingness to affordably license to Mattel or Super7 so maybe Funko will pony up. (For ref: Zorn? NOT WB. Thundercats, DC, Arnold Conan, Mortal Kombat, and about half of the Funko 5.5 Horror figures were WB. Zorn and 2 or 3 of the Horror figs have been the only non-WB 5.5s from Funko. So upwards of 40 WB figures and 4 non-WB.)
