Masters of the Universe - TEELA!

Masters of the Universe Origins - Cartoon Collection - Teela - Mattel 2024

Would you believe this is the 21st Teela action figure released in the last 5 years? And that's not even counting statues, figurines, and novelty figures (but it is counting Goddess repaints). Luckily they keep finding new ways to give her a distinct update with each release. This Cartoon Collection spinoff of the Masters of the Universe Origins line gives us Origins-styled figures (in that updated-vintage construction) but in a deco and sculpt to represent the classic Filmation animated aesthetic. It very similar in spirit to the 2018-19 Masters of the Universe Vintage line from Super7, but with better articulation. This Teela is pretty great. Her armor, hair, and tiara is perfectly styled in that nostalgic cartoon design. The colors are bright and simple, and the rubber armor on her torso moves great without disrupting the waist swivel. The only odd thing is her super detailed face. It looks good by all means, but it looks more like a movie-styled figure than a cartoon. Let's check out Teela below!

Teela comes with her sword and shield as seen in the Filmation cartoons. She also comes with a training robot as seen in such episodes as Pawns of the Game Master (S1.E61).

Teela also comes with the new minicomic "Time's End."

Time for a Comparison Pic!

Here she is with two other Origins Teelas. From Left to Right: Original Toy Deco (New Knees), Cartoon Collection, and 200x.
