ReAction Figures - SHE-RA WAVE!

ReAction - Masters of the Universe Wave 5 (She-Ra Wave) - Super7 2019

I've actually been really hesitant with buying ReAction figures. This was entirely by design because I knew I could get very obsessed with the line very fast. When they first came out, I quickly assembled a wishlist of figures totaling hundreds of dollars. It was a little overwhelming (so I ended up getting none). But then I got suckered into one of those GameStop Black Friday mystery box crazes and I was suddenly the proud owner of tons of ReActions. I really dig the nostalgic retro design and I've loved cherrypicking random characters over the years. But the first wave I was truly obsessed with finding was this She-Ra themed MOTU wave. I only wish there would be plans for a second wave. It's my understanding that the line is over after the recent release of Panthor and Battle Cat, but it's such a pity there wasn't a follow-up She-Ra wave with Glimmer, Catra, Bow, Adora, Mermista... literally I would love any POP character. Maybe even a Swiftwind! Oh well, at least we got this great wave. Let's check them out below!

She-Ra is actually my least favorite figure of the wave. Her face is a little odd, but I chalk that up to the design style.  But she also has one leg slightly shorter than the other and she's missing her iconic red cape. For such a simple construction and bloated price point, I with those problems could be fixed.

Mantenna has an amazing and unexpected action feature. The little lever on his head make his eyes bug out.
