MOTU Origins - TEELA & ZOAR!

Masters of the Universe Origins - Teela (200x Version) & Zoar - Mattel 2023

I get nervous about the future of the Masters of the Universe Origins line. When it first launched a couple years ago I was excited and hopeful about all the good characters that could finally get the vintage treatment through this line. At the very least I thought we would see Queen Marleena, but I was secretly hoping for a whole Princess of Power lineup. But instead we keep seeing the same four molds used multiple times: Teela, Evil-Lyn, Sorceress, and She-Ra. Don't get me wrong, I love every figures I've bought in this line so far, I just can't help but feel to the potential of this line is being squandered to save money on new molds. This newest Teela figure is exclusive to Big Bad Toy Store and features Teela in a 200x-inspired deco. This figure is surprising because she actually has a retooled head with a ponytail and a different tiara. It's a subtle difference from the 2020 Teela, but it really give her that extra 200x feel. Zoar, on the other hand, in 100% vintage toy inspired. Let's check out Teela and Zoar below!

Teela some with her snake armor and shield in her traditional reddish brown color and her snake staff and 200x sword in yellow (which is the MOTUO version of Gold if She-Ra was any indication).

Here are some images of 200x Teela from the cartoon. This Origins figure is more based off her action figure from this series.  The ponytail and the bright accessories are the giveaway.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are a bunch of photos comparing this new 200x Teela with the retro toy version from 2020.

Here she is with the 200x version of Evil-Lyn.
