During Comic Con 2022, Mattel revealed 8 new Masterverse figures across 3 of their main sub-lines of New Eternia, and Princess of Power, and Revelation. One of the newest figures to join the Princess of Power subline is the mysterious Shadow Weaver! Special thanks to CANAL DOS ROSMINEIROS on Instagram, we’ve got an official in package image of the new Masterverse Shadow Weaver figure. As we obtain this image from our friends CANAL DOS ROSMINEIROS on Instagram, it is a little blurry but hopefully we will track down another image that is clearer but for now, this is what we have to work with. So at this point, by process of elimination…Wave 8 must be Man-E-Faces, Shadow Weaver, Pig-Head, and Sorceress!
Shadow Weaver Official Images
Shadow Weaver looks amazing as she has a flame effect and her magic wand staff plus and extra set of hands!
Her soft goods cape is tattered in all the right places and it drapes over her beautifully!
Her arms a lot more yellow than the images and figure we saw at SDCC 2022 but we all know that there are major differences between the “official” photos and the actual figures once they are produced so only time will tell! We are sure the yellow tones will probably be different when we get to see the figure in hand but she looks great!
Shadow Weaver SDCC 2022 Reveal
Below you can see the images of the latest figures to be unveiled at last year’s San Diego Comic Con. Another epic character making her way to the PoP line is Shadow Weaver! She comes with a stand so it looks like she is floating and there is articulation inside the body where she connects to the stand so you can pose her side to side. She also comes with a soft goods cape with the sleeves going over her arms. She also comes with her scepter and a fireball that attaches to it. Shadow Weaver official production image looks a bit different than her that her the prototype, as you can see the most obvious difference is her arm and hands skin tone is now green!! This is a big change from the pinker skin toned Shadow Weaver we saw at SDCC. With her flowing hot pink dress, it really looks like she is floating. This will be one spectacular Masterverse figure! but I am not sure about that change in skin tone. We shall see how that turns out, once we have her in hand.
About Shadow Weaver
According to Shadow Weaver | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
Shadow Weaver is a fictional character in the animated television series She-Ra: Princess of Power. She is a powerful sorceress and member of The Horde. She is shown as being second-in-command to Hordak, the tyrannical leader of the planet Etheria. When the infant Princess Adora was kidnapped, it was Shadow Weaver who cast a spell on her so that she would believe the deceptions of The Horde and blindly follow their evil ways. Unlike many of the Evil Horde, Shadow Weaver was created by Filmation and did not have a figure released in the original toyline. However, Mattel’s access to Filmation rights after 2011 has resulted in a figure of her in the MOTU Classics toyline
Shadow Weaver was a practicing apprentice sorceress originally from the Kingdom of Mystacor. Her real name was never stated. She, along with a rival sorceress named Castaspella, was being trained by a great Etherian sorcerer named Norwyn. When Hordak arrived on Etheria, he promised Shadow Weaver vast power in exchange for information, to which she agreed. Shadow Weaver revealed the secret location of the Etherian Council of Kings and joined The Horde as Shadow Weaver.
Only a second-rate sorceress herself, her powers were greatly increased through a Power Gem which was responsible for a devastating and unforeseen physical transformation. While absorbing the power of the Horde’s “dark gem”, Norwyn discovered and realized her great betrayal. He then destroyed the gem, severing her link with the gem, but not before she had taken a third of its power, inducing an irreversible change in her mentally and spiritually. She became Norwyn’s mortal enemy and joined The Horde forever.Shadow Weaver | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
Shadow Weaver was released previously for the Masters of the Universe Classics line in first in 2012, in a more detailed MOTUC version. Then released again in 2019, resembling her Filmation Princess of Power look for the Club Grayskull line by Super7.
