  • "Failmation" Teela Revealed





    Thanks to Jukka from Grayskullcon!



    It looks like Mattel dropped the ball super hard on the "Filmation" Teela that comes with Point Dread. One fan on the .org mentioned that this might be the reason why we haven't seen very clear pictures of her until this point. Did the 4H sculpt this or was this done in house? The original Teela from 2009 is still the best!

    The first thing that's off is the waist swivel. If this is the way that it would have looked, then Mattel should have kept it to one piece, as too much articulation can ruin the sculpt if it's not done right. The next thing is that headsculpt...Failmation Teela's face looks like it sits too low. And from another angle, it looks fat.

    Now I think I'm going to wait on Point Dread. Since vehicles don't really go too fast, I think I can wait on this one.

    At least it will be good to get her Filmation weapons...

            O my days she got slapped with the ugly stick. It would only take me one day to create a accurate head from only pictures on Google. How can this happen when they have archived artwork. They need to make neck smaller and head bigger.

            Not that I buy figures at all but I know what teela looks like I be vexed if I was a collector like most of you , that pokemon syndrome is a killer

              We'll most likely get a real "Filmation Teela" in the HATMOTU line. This version was supposed to be a Classicized version, much like MAA with the Battle Ram last year or Failmation Hordak.

              She looks like a bootleg from the early days!... Even Madam Razz might be laughing her big ass off once she sees her!

                  she does have a planet of the apes female ressemblance

                Yuk, I'm not a filmation fan, but I was interested to see her as I think F T is a nice design ,
                But as I've said many times before the female buck is just too big,

                the idea of doing a armour overlay was a bad call ,Should have been a new torso

                Look at the proto, the leotard connects under the crotch,
                The production is still suffering from granny pants ( not as bad in the past but still not good) it amazes me that every other figure manufacturer out there can make a aesthetic female crotch)

                The face looks bad, but as others have pointed out, it could be factory warp,

                The waist turn had the ideal opportunity to be under the gold armour but was missed, creating a ugly cut join,

                In short, she was added to the box set as a way to secure sales as Teela is a high demand figure,
                It should have just been in the filmation sub were it would have got the proper budget to do the figure right ,

                  I don't know about that!!!... To me, her face looks like an ethnic drag queen that went for a terrible facelift!
                  ... Her eyebrows are way too high for such a flat looking profile!

                  Besides, her torso and armor look simply awful!

                        If you _have_ another Teela ...

                        I'm of the opinion that characters who got appearances on the covers of the BCI CD sets should be evergreen.

                      Whoever was in charge of letting this figure get to production needs their job evaluated and/or their eyes checked.

                        It took me a while to grok to it, but I finally figured out what this thing reminds me of - Beatrice from American Mary, a stripper who has had a lot of ill-advised plastic surgery in an effort to look like cartoon character Betty Boop:

                          On the back of the box she looks better.


                          Somewhere through the process mattel turned her into a chippette.

                            Something happened. That box art should be reflecting the figure, and probably did when the Four Horsemen sculpted it. Can't wait to hear the explanation.

                            Maybe the price drop in 2016 has to do with a new and less talented vendor in China?

                          This isn't a playset, it's a bloody sick joke.

                          Does this new team really think this kind of garbage is acceptable? It really is unreal just how shitty everything went in a real hurry. I hate Scooter, don't get me wrong, but good god, evidently they let a bunch of even bigger morons loose on the MOTUC line. Where is the quality control? Were is the passion? And most of all where is the "transparency"? Enraged fans are blowing up the ORG and the Matty Forums, and so far this new team is just remaining silent. The fact that they hid Teela for so long just demonstrates how shady they are willing to be too. Unbelievable.

                          I likely won't be buying this piece of garbage set now, unless we see some pictures that show tangible improvement. I'm also seriously considering bailing on 2016 subs too given how piss poor the quality control has become.

                          Way to drive the entire line into the ground. What a damn shame.

                            I hate the new BS as much as the next guys, but that first shot of Point Dread was never promised, and for good reason. You can see where it splits in half to sit on top of CG, it's far too big. So in this instance there had to be a size constraint due to the size of the CG parapet.

                            Holy crap. I was so focused on Teela that I didn't look at Point Dread itself!

                          WTF!!!

                          This is utterly ridiculous, none of the figures can fit into that shrunken Dread-Point other than Orko and the other goofs in his size!... Now I'm really pissed!!!

                            I'd already traded my Teela in advance for another figure, so I'm at least good there. It's a shame that Point Dread was size reduced. I'd rather pay the same price (without the figure) for the bigger version of Point Dread
                            Heroic human battering ram, catapult, and space warp device.

                              they were so quick to throw him under the bus & now we see that they are worse than he was. power-con exclusives, king hiss, failmation teela, mini-dread, what will they screw up next?

                                I think TG's tenure was worse. The in-fighting over him split up the He-Man community and divided our most notable fans. Not to mention the stuff that was stolen from Emiliano.

                                But this new team is screwing up oh so badly! All of this ever since July!

                              Looks like Mattel in general is a screwed up company to begin with, and the MOTU brand (in particular) from the NA era to this day, has always suffered from its miserable management!

                              The 4 Horsemen and their associates did a great deal to bring back MOTU to the market and to its fandom, and yet Mattel has always found a way to screw things up with its bad decisions, shady customer service, QC incompetence, marketing strategies, and of course with their irrefutable greed!

                                They basically just made sure Snake Mountain will never be made. This item is going to be an abysmal flop and upper management will completely loose faith in the line, making Snake Mountain a nonstarter.

                                Thanks Team "Transparency" for being such total screw ups! I also love how they are completely ignoring the backlash. What a bunch of charlatans!!!!

                                  they should have just re-released her with the new head like BR-MAA. or use the original face with new hair & adora body. but as usual, the females get the short end of the stick.
