Wrapping Up 2021: She-Ra from Masters of the Universe: Figural Bag Clips by Monogram International


   Today I'm wrapping up my reviews of the second series of Monogram International's Masters of the Universe: Figural Bag Clips with a look at She-Ra. She-Ra was originally released as a bag clip in a 2019 SDCC exclusive set (which I don't have) and that same sculpt was reused in 2021 as one of the MOTU magnets. For series 2 Monogram International has given us a completely new sculpt that shows off more of She-Ra's outfit and gives her a shield as well. That's a pretty nice touch! I'm a huge She-Ra fan and I'm always glad when we get She-Ra collectibles, especially when it's a standard release and not just an exclusive. Let's all shout "For the Honor of Grayskull!" together and take a look at She-Ra after the break...

The Facts:

Height: 2 inches 

Articulation: None

Accessories: None

Non-Scalper Price: $7-8 dollars
The Positives:

* She-Ra is pretty impressive. She looks perfect in this style and the amount of detail on her outfit and in her weapons is excellent. Her tiara is pretty impressive, too. It's clearly Filmation inspired which is excellent. Filmation She-Ra is definitely my favorite She-Ra for sure. This is a really fun, colorful sculpt.
* Rather than having a metal key-ring, these have a plastic clip. They're marketed as bag clips, so I guess the intention is to display them on a backpack or satchel of sorts.You can also see She-Ra's cape and the detail in her hair when she's turned around.

   She-Ra might be my second favorite figure in this set, right after Moss Man. She just fits this style and aesthetic so well. I don't actually use these as bag clips but instead have them hanging from some little hooks on the edges of some of the display shelves in my Masters of the Universe room. They look fantastic on display. She-Ra gets a Great and a 1/2 from me. I'm really hoping that we see a third series that goes even deeper into the  MOTU and PoP roster though I do admit that stuff like this tends to try to appeal to a broader fan base. Still, wouldn't characters like King Hiss, Kowl, Mermista, and Tung Lashor look great in this style?
Check out the Crystal Castle for all of my She-Ra/ Adora reviews. I have a bunch of them!
