    Yesssss. I am so geeking out over this! If there's some customizer somewhere who can make this, I'd love to see it!

    I am such a sucker for playsets that fold out like that. Takes me back to being seven years old with CG all over again!

    Personally I'd rather see it in MOTUC scale form, but it would be nice to have.

    This looks cool. I'm not too familiar with POP though. Is this design based on something from the cartoon? What's the big pink dome? Is the lady figure some sort of statue?

    I really like the color scheme. I would have liked a Horror Hall too.

    She's a microphone to allow the user to "speak" as Light Hope.

    The design is rather loosely based on the look of the woods in the show. The tree tops were pink so the dome concept could be merely to mimic that aesthetic.

    The furnished interior is in line with the doll house angle the Mattel line was pushing in the 80s...

    So I am crazy inspired by this and want to do a custom. Does anyone know if Mattel produced a similar playset at any point that I can use as a base? I'm looking through the stuff they did for their fairies line now...

    Oh YES please! I absolutely love this! My only note is that I like the original with the woman-mic, which seemed to be changed into a less detailed mic in subsequent production model slides that were shown on the weekend. This more ornate version is just superb.

    If it wasn't clear in my last post, I definitely want this playset, and several of the characters/figures we just recently heard about. Like Spidra... even though we haven't seen her yet. ha! I'm still amazed that she got far enough along to be shown at Toy Fair.

    Possibly. I think Garrett & Darren said that there's probably at least some polaroids and/or video of her from Toy Fair somewhere in the archives. (She was shown along with the Whispering Woods playset) Apparently Mattel filmed all of their Toy Fair appearances.

    Strange that Mattel kept Star Sisters protos and not a Spidra one.
    I Wonder if they still have more protos like Spinnerella, Loo-Kee etc

    Also I am very curious to know about the "Star Sisters cavern" playset (if you remember) if it was planned for true or if it is just a fanfiction lol

    There are so many peacocks on this playset at least two or am i imagining here something? This whole playset is screaming Peekablue if you ask me

    But it also could be Catras tree-plex were she trapped Bow in Entraptas/Sweet Bees mini comic.

    So many possibilities and do we know who the woman on the microphone is? I still think it could be a statue of the wise old Seer from the first few mini comics
    *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Lizorr *Zilora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Quartzara(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

    I believe it is, but in the paperwork, they call her the Oracle.

    Oh…to bad. Well another female character. It would have been neat if the Seer would have been acknowledged

    I would love this playset. I wonder if this prototype is kicking around somewhere, still?

    I just hope a photo with some figures in it exists...I'm having trouble seeing the scale of this thing. These pics give it a Polly Pocket sort of vibe
