    Which is your favorite new design for the Princesses of Power?

    I can tell that not everyone is a fan of the re-designed She-Ra characters... and we don't know a lot about them yet. But, I am curious to see which of the new designs reigns supreme so far.

    For me, it was a hard choice between Mermista and Netossa because I love both the original versions and the new redesigns. I ended up voting for Mermista though because of my love for all things oceanic.

    Bow, hands down.
    Few others that I don't dislike are Catra, Hordak, Adora.

    I went with Netossa. I don't know what it is, I really dig her design.

    I also really love Sea Hawk's and Hordak's. Catra's has really grown on me; I was hesitant at first since I just love the drag queen ridiculousness of her original design, but she's won me over.

    Least favorites are Glimmer, Frosta, Entrapta, and Mermista. Mermista is probably my most disappointed design, since she's my favorite of the Great Rebellion in the original series. Her skin tone and color scheme are fine, but I just wish she had a slimmer, sleeker look.

    I love so many of them (most of them) so much it's very hard to pick...but that being said I immediately knew I had to vote Spinnerella. Glimmer is my favourite character in the show, and so many look really great and cool and unique.

    But I gotta give it to Spinnerella, I just love what they did and are showing on this show. Now if only she could get some development and screentime. At the time of writing this I think I have one episode left to watch, but I'd like to see more of her and Netossa.

    For what it's worth the question was about my favourite, not the best. I think a bunch of them are better new designs, but "best" and "favourite" are not the same thing.

    Bonus points to Spinnerella for being adorably chubby in a way that I'm so, so glad the show went with! Cartoons-in-general need more cute fat girls. She looks an awful lot like my fiancee!
    Scorpia is definitively (well, quite possibly) the best redesign actually. Not my favourite, but the best.

    My favourite is Spinnerella, for precisely the reasons you name.

    YOU'RE ALL WRONG!
    IMP had the best redesign. So much so that i think he looks BETTER.
    I love his empty eyes, and his lil spider crawling self.
    I want an Imp now!
    Crap. You're basically right. Imps redesign is great. He's not really a character (yet) so I wouldnt choose him (more of a pet) but I cannot deny that his is one of the best.

    With Frosta, I can totally understand... she was an awesome character in the original show; powerful, beautiful, great costume design/hair, and she even made He-Man a bit uncomfortable, lol! But, her new design is simply terrible. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the episode, but of all the changes that were made, her being an 11 year old brat just took me by surprise... especially because vintage Frosta is one of my favorite PoP characters.

    As for She-Ra? For me, there is no way in **** that this new version will ever hold a candle to the original. And, beyond that, I think that there were some bad design choices made for the main protagonist. The tiara is goofy, the sword is way too clunky, the bike-shorts don't look good at all, and her boots look like knock-off UGGs. I actually like Adora's design though...
    I think She Ra-Adora are great. The only reason I assumed she was not getting votes is because they are so nearly identical it's not even a redesign. They didn't change much of anything. And because of that they're just as good as the original, just not "exciting" because there isnt anything new. Not bad, just there.

    As for Frosta, she's not a bad design. It's a great design. It's just the most shockingly different from the rest. Shockingly different can be very off putting, so I am not surprised she's so low ranked. But off putting, shocking, or disappointing are not the same as bad. I like that she's so young, I like the idea behind it. I'm sure I'll warm to it (hehe) but yeah, I agree, it is/was hardest for me to accept because it was so different but it makes alot of sense and is a good design for a frosty character.

    I think this show is amazingly beautiful. It's just a joy to look at. There's something savage, dreamlike, and wild that the original filmation shows had that will not oft be repeated but I prefer to judge things on their own merit.

    It's like saying everyone is a terrible person becuase there have been such amazing people before them. Judge it on it' sown merits.

    But even judging against the other show; they're just different. There's already alot about this show that is done better. But I will not stop loving the old show and appreciating what it gave (and gives me).

    But yeah, there are so many desktops/wallpapers I've gotten from this show. It really is pretty.

    I agree with Adekis and BaronTerror, I love the diversity in body shapes as well as race, sexual orientation, and overall looks. I love Classic POP dearly, but I also love New POP on its own merits. Not everyone can look the same or be the same size, it's about time popular culture reflected these diverse factors.

    As for the characters' ages, even animated characters were younger people once.


    It's like the recent DC Comics Icons Series novels or Gotham with Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) being depicted as much younger people. There are elements in Gotham I'm not happy with, and even some episodes I will not re-watch, but for the most part, I've loved the good parts, including characterisation.

    I'm surprised Hordak is winning, I wonder if that's because he's the character that's been altered the least from how he appeared originally
    He who dies with the most MOTUC wins!

    Iīm not surprised and until now the only ones who donīt have any vote are She-Ra and Frosta. And thatīs no surprise as well...

    I`m sure by mentioning it someone feels sorry for them and they get votes eventually but still...
