Ponies, please!

Of course all the horses will be in there. Everybody knows SwiftWind is essential to the She-Ra aesthetic.


Don't forget about the Swan! I loved Enchanta.

I really have high hopes for this. Dreamworks was with the voltron reboot, and it’s perfeomning quite well. Cartoon Network hasn’t quite gotten to make a good reboot yet, so I’m glad dreamworks is handling this. I’m quite curious as to how this pans out, and will be interested in seeing what unfolds.

Why are they changing it so that she's not Prince Adam's twin sister? What is it with wtiters believing they hafta change core aspects?

I love the She-Ra horses, especially the translucent ones.

Me too. I had a light pink one and a purple one with blue hair that a friend gave me when I was a kid. I'm not sure if they had names.

Probably because there is currently no ongoing or upcoming He-Man franchise reboot to go along with it.


Anyways..
I don't like the new Voltron but I'm still fairly excited and optimistic for this one, because of the writers/crew involved and that a lot of other characters like Mermista and Netossa already being confirmed. I'm just hoping the art style is more unique instead of being either  'round and quirky' or anime/Avatar-styled derivative like a lot of modern cartoons.

Though my only true worry is the toys, as Mattel's quality is currently, and has been, the absolute worst in these past few years.

Yep, they all had names. And the crystal versions had a backstory in comic book form, called Through The Crystal Door or something along those lines.

Oh great news!

I hope they try 11" action figures that look more like dolls with combable hair (like the 11" doll they had at SDCC a couple years ago).

I don't like the looks of the most recent MOTU figures by ReAction- please, not like that !

Mattel gave up the MOTU license so I suspect that would include Shera as well?

Does anyone know who will get the license for the toys? Maybe not known yet?

There are different stories about this. Some claim Mattel sold everything MOTU, and through the years the IP was handed over a lot from one company to the next. All the while, Mattel kept first rights to toys till 2023, but has to pay royalties. Others say that Mattel still holds the rights to MOTU, and only the media rights are not in their hands; those currently belong to Universal.

She-Ra (as a toy) is legally a completely separate brand from MOTU, only connected to MOTU through animation (which belonged to Filmation). If Mattel sold off everything She-Ra as well, they might still have first rights on toys for the upcoming years, just like with He-Man. If they still own She-Ra, they can produce toys based on *their* original more girly (pink/purple/gold) She-Ra design, but if they want to make Dreamworks/Netflix (ex-filmation IP) style based toys, they probably pay royalties .

The legal separation between He-Man and She-Ra probably has something to do with why She-Ra never showed up in the He-Man reboots, and why He-Man is currently not being written into the She-Ra reboot.

I would be thrilled if the people who make the nicer D.C. and Marvel toys picked these up. Maybe a Classic Anniversary line and a new style line to appeal to both old and new fans alike?

At the very least even if I don't like the show there should be toys. Because there needs to be toys. Also, 2D please and thank you. I'm old school and love 2D over 3D any day.

No but there's the upcoming movie.

It will be especially good if there are decent figures/dolls for this line, because if I remember rightly, Netossa was one of the harder figures to get, being that she was such a late release. I remember looking for a cheap one for a really long time before finally getting mine. It's one reason I kept her when I sold off most of the others, because I figured if I regretted it it would be hard to replace her. I'd love to see her done in a new style but in good quality.

I know there are more recent figures but they have moulded hair. I want brushable.

Still sad about Flutterina though :( Poor little papillon.

Wow, I never knew any of that!  Extremely interesting!
