She-Ra was the queen of the eighties. Her cartoon series was the first time I (as a young boy) realized "girly" things could be cool. Pastel colors and butterfly wings did not make these ladies any less formidable. And the simple fact that her arch-nemesis, Hordak, was tougher than He-Man's Skeletor spoke volumes. But despite her tough animated presence, her merchandising was unfortunately all girl. Rooted hair, brushes, sparkles, perfumes.. no boy in his right mind would (outwardly) admit to wanting those things. It wasn't until 25 years later that we got an action figure that finally stripped her of all that fluff. I wish I was one of those collectors who didn't care about cloth outfits and rooted hair, but unfortunately I am. Because of my pesky self-imposed restrictions, this Funko Pop Vinyl figure is a very welcome addition to my collection. I've been a fan of the Pop style since I bought the Batgirl figure a few years ago. The momentum of the line impresses me and I can't wait to see who else we'll get. I have my fingers crossed for Jem. Let's check out She-Ra below!
I'm kind of obsessed with the graphic on the box... It's actually cuter than the figure itself.
My She-Ra figure has a tilted head. I tried to straighten it, but it keeps bending back. It's growing on me though.
There's really not a lot to say about these figures other than to show pictures and comment on their cuteness. Oh yeah, she's articulated at the neck! (that's something, isn't it?)
Alrighty then, time for a Comparison Pic!
