He-Man Animated Series - SORCERESS!

He-Man & the Masters of the Universe - Sorceress & Cosmic Falcon - Mattel 2022

As much as I enjoy Netflix's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe CGI Animated Series, I often find myself wishing that the character designs weren't quite as removed from the source material. For those who haven't seen the show, the concept is very reimagined. The core idea that instead of just Prince Adam having a transformation sequence to become He-Man, all his friends do as well. Teela transforms into Sorceress, but it's a very different Sorceress than we're used to (the traditional wise sorceress role is instead held by the spectral character Eldress). I was happy with the new concepts and storylines, but I missed a more recognizable Filmation-type Sorceress. But then this great repaint was announced and it was exactly what I wanted. And not only is the the new Teela/Sorceress character decked out in classic colors, but she also comes with the very Zoar-like Cosmic Falcon. I don't think these have a direct connection to the Netflix show, but I'm here for it either way. Let's check her out!

Sorceress comes with her helmet, wings, and Staff of Zoar.

She also comes packaged with the large Cosmic Falcon .
The falcon has articulated wings and legs.

The Cosmic Falcon has legs with a narrow portion that can be gripped by Sorceress. 

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Sorceress with her standard version from earlier this year.

  1. I'm honestly not a fan of the he-man animated series style choices. They look a little too bug eyed for my tastes. That said the Revelation reboot is another matter, that one looks great. I'm very happy they decided to give us a Evil-lyn bat sorceress figure.
