This figure is exactly the reason why I love MOTUC so much. In the classic She-Ra cartoons, my least favorite character by far was Sweet Bee. I didn't like her looks, I didn't like chemistry with He-Man, and I absolutely loathed her voice. Of all the POP characters to be made into MOTUC figures (back in the day when it was just a pipe dream to get them all), she was very low on my list of wants. Never underestimate the Four Horsemen though. When this figure was revealed earlier this year, I didn't waste any time before eating my words. She's gorgeous. The best part about it is that this figure makes me totally reappraise my feeling about the original animated Sweet Bee.. kind of like how a cover of a song makes you appreciate the original. When it came time to make a decision about subbing up for 2015, the excellent interpretation of Sweet Bee was my deciding factor. Perfuma is another character I've always kind of dreaded for this line, but now I'm excited to see what they can do with her. Let's check out Sweet Bee!
Sweet Bee comes with her Space Helmet, a Shield, and a Stinger Gun.
Here she is without her wings.
Her helmet is a separate head (ie.. it doesn't squeeze over her regular head).
Her wings are reversible. Although translucent, one side has grooves in the pattern of an insect wing, and the other has a stippled texture.
Here are some images of Sweet Bee from the cartoon.
Time for Some Group and Comparison Pics!
This is my attempt the recreate the love triangle from Sweet Bee's first episode.
