Teela Filmation Super7 2017 Masters of the Universe Figure
Teela action figure from the Filmation Super7 Masters of the Universe toy line. Given the limitations of animation back in the 80’s, Teela’s look is pretty basic with a gold and white outfit and red hair with a gold hair band tiara on her head. Since there is not much detail in the animated cartoon version, the figure itself is also basic but it really works to pull off Teela’s classics look. The makeup is pretty strikingly different than the rest of the figure as more attention to detail has been paid in that area of the head sculpt, which makes her face pop and ads to the cartoon look and feel. I do feel that some of the sculpting on Teela’s white arm cuffs could have been a bit more angled to match the animated counterpart as the arm cuffs on the figure seem to blend right into her arm. The way the arm cuffs flare out as they go up her arm. which gives her a more interesting look. The boots are a pretty dead on representation but will all of the ladies and how their feet and shoes are sculpted, it does make it difficult for them to stand. The way the hair was sculpted does a nice job of recreating the look of real hair piled atop her head with her gold tiara completing the look and feel of the 80’s version from yesteryear.
Teela came with an actual bio, which follows the mythos of the original cartoon, and reads:
Under the care of her adoptive father Man-At-Arms, Teela, the daughter of the Sorceress has grown into a strong-willed individual and is regarded as one of the best warriors in the kingdom. As Captain of the Guard, Teela commands the military of Eternos and the flame-haired end the warrior would gladly lay down her life in defense of her King and Queen. Teela’s ongoing fight against the forces of evil helps to prepare the young woman for her destiny of becoming the next Sorceress of Castle Grayskull.
