She-Ra: Princess of Power!

For years I’ve been trying to get a hold of a decently carded She-Ra from the vintage Princess of Power toy line and that day has finally come!

She-Ra: The Most Powerful Woman in the Universe, is the sister of He-Man OR her true identity of Princess Adora is the sister of Prince Adam, the true identity of He-Man: The Most Powerful Man in the Universe. (Of course, most of you already know that)!

She-Ra is copyrighted 1984 and is an action doll, she was built like an action figure but has rooted hair and cloth clothing. She-Ra includes a multitude of accessories including her tiara with glittery stickers, a fabric cape, a fabric skirting and sculpted into the figure is the main part of her white dress that has a crystal embedded into the stomach area.

She-Ra’s included weapons are a small Sword of Protection with crystal above the handle, a gold shield and a little pink hairbrush to straighten out her rooted locks.

Behind She-Ra is a mini comic called “The Story of She-Ra” and features her origin. Although this comic is in the package with the figure, I had acquired this one over a year ago, so it gives me one to read if anything and cost me next to nothing.

She-Ra’s card features great art on both the front and back. The back of the package has an “also available” of most of the characters including the Crystal Castle.

…And here is poor, old, played with She-Ra who I  gave a major cleaning to.  She-Ra still has her sword, but she’s going to need restoration and that is my plan.

I would consider getting She-Ra Graded by the AFA, however the card would only get a 60, if I was really lucky, a 70. The bubble would be 80+ and the figure 85 or even 90+, the final grade would be between 70 and 80 which would be good for a figure copyrighted 1984, but still, there really is no need because I have a figure “case” that was pretty cheap and it is made very strong. The carded She-Ra fits in the case perfectly and it even keeps the card mostly flat…best $5 investment I ever made.

This isn’t a review, this is an archive, I wanted to share a great memory from my childhood and a piece of my collection that I actually had to be patient to get; which causes it to mean a lot to me. I realize that the original She-Ra is girly–the MOTU Classics probably is too, but its more than just a doll, it’s a piece of history, something to be remembered and what better way to remember such a thing than for it to be the way it was on the toy shelves in the 80’s…
