Masters Of The Universe Classics Angella Review

Masters Of The Universe Classics Angella 01

 

Angella, or better known as Queen Angella, the founder of the Great Rebellion makes her long awaited debut this month is the Classics line from Mattel. Since the line debuted back in 2008 with King Greyskull, and launched in 2009, Mattel has been slowly releasing key Princess of Power characters starting with She-Ra, and working their way through over the years. Angella is one of the last remaining POP characters that are highly demanded, leaving only Peekablue and Perfuma to finish off the core Great Rebellion characters, and as always they could revisit POP with additional characters if Classics can keep generating enough support each subscription sign-up period, with the next one for 2016 happening this Summer around the San Diego Comic-Con reveals.

Availability: April 2015

Sculpt & Paint:

Angella uses shared parts with existing MOTUC figures and includes newly tooled head, halo, dress, boots, shins, and sword. She is based on her appearance in the classic She-Ra animated series in the 1980’s, and has some elements from the vintage toy including the line details in her bodice, boots, belt, and translucent pink halo that plugs into the wing mounted on her back and can also be removed. For the most part, it’s unusual for The Horsemen to design a character not based on the toy, and in this case, it works much better.

What is interesting about her wings is that these are reused from DC Universe Classics Hawkgirl, and Mattel and The Four Horsemen combined tooling once again for both lines. The wings work pretty well for Angella, and have hinged joints.

Articulation:

Standard for MOTUC.

Accessories:

Sword, removable halo.

Overall:

Angella is long overdue for the Classics treatment and has a very nice detailed sculpt. While there is an issue with her height being shorter than her daughters, Glimmer, the overall details make up for that.

Recommended.

Angella Bio:

Real Name: Angella the Third, Queen Regent of Bright Moon
Angella was the regent queen of one of Etheria’s largest kingdoms. After Hordak invaded her planet, Bright Moon was overthrown and Angella and all her subjects were declared slaves of the Horde Empire. Believing in her heart that all people have the right to be free, Angella was the first monarch to openly fight back against the oppression of the Horde. Forming the Great Rebellion with other key leaders, she brought her people to the safety of the Whispering Woods, just outside of Hordak’s evil influence. There they regrouped and formed an attack squad to wage war and once again free Eternia and all of its people. After Hordak abandoned Etheria, Angella stayed behind to help rebuild her kingdom and the beauty of the planet. Beautiful and helpful, Angella is lovely and very intuitive—she can sense when danger is near and has the ability to fly like an angel.
