Masters of the Universe Minis - Singles - Teela Warrior Goddess - Mattel 2021

I always thought Teela was the most interesting person in Masters of the Universe. Other characters had their entire bio defined by their name or action gimmick. But Teela was layered and kept surprising us throughout the series. Even at first introduction, a female Captain of the Royal Guard is unique and intriguing. Additionally, her duty of protecting the feeble Prince Adam kept her right in the middle of the action. Later we learned she wasn't Duncan's biological daughter but rather adopted under mysterious circumstances. Later still we learned that the Sorceress is her mother and she's predestined to assume the mantle next. Like I said, she's a very dynamic character and was always in need of further tales. In fact, there should be an entire series focused on her. I predict the MOTU fandom would be thrilled about such a great gift and rally behind the creators praising their efforts and talent and demanding more. These fans are always appreciative and able to see the big picture and that's what I love about them.

For a second I was afraid this traditional Teela MOTU Mini would skip the US. I had seen them all over eBay from other countries for months and three waves went by in the US with no sight of her. Luckily she started showing up in full force with the new Revelations assortments a few weeks ago. Let's check her our below!

Teela has four points of articulation: Head, shoulder, and waist swivels.

Teela comes with her Snake Staff.
I have a gut feeling there will be a future release of her with full Snake Armor and a Shield. But for now she only has a staff.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Teela with Evil-Lyn and She-Ra.

And here she is with her Anti-Eternian version from the first round of figures.

And to show how the female buck compares with her male counterparts, here she is with Stinkor and Merman.
