    Teela and The Secret Liquid of Life!

    I know were just getting BG Teela so try not to hate on another varient, but I'd really like to get a Teela similar to her mini-comic appearance in The Secret Liquid of Life!

    As I said when you brought this up in the 2012 sub figure thread:

    Basic as that is (it's essentially an Adora repaint with BGT head, arms & boots), I don't see another Teela variant coming so soon after BGT.

    [Plus, at what point does a variant stop looking like a character? BGT crossed that line for a lot of people, and this would be a step further]
    And, yeah, you've now proven that it is indeed essentially an Adora repaint with that digibash (which even uses Adora's hair), but the points about "so soon after BGT" and "does that really say Teela to anyone" still stand...

    I hear what you're saying, but i don't quite get the point. To me the same could hold true for Keldor/Skeletor, or 200X Sorceress. For me it's another mini-comic figure which I hope to get many of in this line. Oh and I just used Adora as an example, I'd rather see [minimal]new tooling if they actually made this.

    I don't think the same holds true for Keldor/Skeletor. Keldor is a pre-origin version of the character, like Harvey Dent before becoming Two Face. This is just a change of wardrobe. 200X Sorceress can at least be explained as battle armor, while this, like BG Teela, is a strange variant to explain in canon. Why change of hair color? Is Teela a mistress of disguise now? What good is this appearance/costume over her old one? Context would be good, but the original didn't have an special reason for wearing that outfit. The BG Teela bio might actually work to explain her changing appearance though, and if it does then there may be no "too soon" for Teela costume variants.

    I personally still don't see a problem with these appearances being called new characters, but I don't feel that way about 200X variants, so I guess I have a double standard.

    Those colors look kinda ugly for Teela. Looks like a random, generic superhero girl outta Marvel or something.

    Sure, why not! Perhaps this is someone else's Battleground Teela.




    I wonder if Mattel is going to bother to explain why some non-magical characters (Teela, Queen Marlena) can have different hair colors. Whereas some fans would question it, other fans would like an explanation.

    No thank you. I only want 1 other Teela variant during the course of this line and that's a NA variant.

    Yeah, I have to say 'do not want' as well...; there's just so many other variants I'd want before this.

    If they release that Teela after 2017, I'm all in for it. Otherwise, no.

    I would have preferred this over the Teela variant we're getting, but I'm not eager to get either of them(I'm not a big fan of the color yellow). At least this one doesn't seem to me to be out of character for Teela. I'm not sure if there is a Teela variant I'd even want. The only other 2 that I can think of that aren't just repaints or her with longer hair are the one from the 1987 movie(off limits but kinda bland anyways) and the one from the NA cartoon(off limits as well but looks more like a POP guest star than Teela).

    I'd like to see it eventually, but not for quite awhile. I would love to see a Sorceress/Teela Breast Cancer Awareness 2-Pack with their pink mini-comic looks, though, ASAP!

    I'm pretty keen on variants of main characters though. I cannot wait to see a MOTUC Jungle Attack He-Man someday!!!

    Is that Teela or April O'Neil?

    We have one variant Teela that looks nothing like Teela. That's enough.

    The pink Teela (unofficially titled 'breast cancer awareness Teela') for a TRU 2-pack I could handle, but that's because it actually looks like Teela.

    That's strange, she looks exactly like Teela to me. Let me check...yep, that's Teela's face, her blonde hair, and the outfit she wore in DC comics. Can't wait until she's on my shelf.

    I'd buy this liquid of life version too, I'm sure they could make it look pretty good. Seems like an easy re-use of parts.

    Oh...Oh..my.

    And, technically, the Marlena-can-have-her-green-dress argument should hold true for this outfit as well.

    MOTUC Figures should have detaching Arms (Example Trap-Jaw) and Upperbody should be not one with the legs (King Hiss) for mixing Parts!!!

    I just have to say that there are quite a few characters in the SLOL mini that would be great MOTUC figures!
