MOTU Origins Princess of Power Cartoon Collection 2024 Wish List

Affiliate links in post. See Disclosure Policy.

Fresh off the news that She-Ra & Bow are coming to MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection in 2024, we wanted to dream a little and share our MOTU Origins Princess of Power Cartoon Collection Wish Lish! The MOTU Origins line has not had any real Princess of Power characters added to it since the Wave 3 She-Ra standard release and the 2020 She-Ra Power Con exclusive. We believe that this could be perhaps timed for 2024 when it’s the 40th anniversary of the She-Ra Princess of Power cartoon series. Thanks to the incredibly talented Eternal Customs on Facebook, we can see what some of our MOTU Origins Princess of Power Cartoon Collection Wish Lish might look like!

Princess of Power Cartoon Collection Wish List

Let’s start out with the two trusty steeds and besties for the heroic warriors we just announced were rumored to be coming to the Cartoon Collection, that’s right it’s Arrow, Bow’s horse and Swift Wind, She-Ra’s horse!

Swift Wind:

Swift Wind or “Swifty” as She-Ra affectionately referred to him, was the other big star of the She-Ra Princess of Power Filmation cartoon! My favorite character as a kid and now, Swifty was always there to assist She-Ra in fighting the Evil Horde and came to the rescue whenever she needed him. I loved the sound of his voice too; it just fit him so well! The animators chose to color Swifty in a beautiful color scheme, by coloring him as a white horse, his multicolored wings and pink and blue mask really stood out and gave him that signature look that everyone knows and loves!

The Mattel Princess of Power version of Swift Wind, released in 1985, also did not resemble the Swift Wind from Filmation, but rather was a shimmery pink colored horse with gold, white and pink wings, a gold mask and saddle with pink rooted hair. Just like Arrow, allowing kids to comb and style Swift Wind’s hair, which was a pivotal part of the play pattern for the Princess of Power toy line.

Shown below is the vintage Mattel Princess of Power Swift Wind and She-Ra, from the personal collection of the none other than the Toy Sorceress! Love my horsie!!! Swifty and She-Ra sit proudly on the shelf over my desk where I am currently authoring this article!

Swiftwind was also released for the MOTU Classic line as seen below. This version closely resembled the Filmation version of Swift Wind and we hope we can get one for the MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection!

Appearing on the 2020 Power Con exclusive She-Ra card art, She-Ra can be seen riding her trusted companion Swift Wind in an amazing piece of artwork by the great Axel Gimenez in his shimmering pink Mattel version! Again, to me this is a tease that we might someday get a Pop version of Swift Wind.

She-Ra and Shift Wind are also illustrated on the back of the card back with the rest of the Rebellion in front of the Crystal Castle.

Arrow:

Steed of the Great Rebellion and Bow’s trusted friend, Arrow didn’t have a huge role on the She-Ra Princess of Power Filmation cartoon like Swift Wind did, but he was still an important character to the show.

She-Ra Princess of Power Arrow Filmation
Arrow as seen on the She-Ra Princess of Power Filmation cartoon

Released in 1985, and coined “Arrow the true-blue horse that flies”, the Mattel version of Arrow, did not resemble the Filmation version at all, which was actually a typical occurrence with this line of toys. Colored in light blue shimmery plastic, Mattel’s version of Arrow was a wing cladded horse similar to Swift Wind that included a golden saddle and rooted blue hair for kids to style and comb.

Loo-kee & Kowl

Let’s start out with these cute little guys that just made the Princess of Power cartoon extra special! Loo-kee & Kowl were the comic relief and little buddies every Heroic warrior needed. It was always fun find Loo-kee! during each episode of the Filmation She-Ra Princess of Power cartoon, is let’s

Loo-Kee, son of Pa-Pee, was a member of the Kon-Seals, a race of creatures that used their unique hiding abilities in order to aid the forces of good. Not only was Loo-Kee an expert when it came to hiding, he also had the ability to teleport short distances.

These figures have already been teased on previous Origins releases card backs, so let’s take a look where we’ve seen them. We first saw Loo-Kee (or did we 🤔) in the card art for the standard release of She-Ra and if you didn’t see him the fist time, he was right in front of your face so to speak as he was hiding in the trees.

The art for the Power Con 2020 exclusive She-Ra provided some great teases for some PoP characters, including Bow, Glimmer, Kowl, and Loo-Kee, who was much easier to find.

Kowl is depicted as a small flying creature capable of speaking. His wings are not unlike large ears, and he has the overall appearance of something akin to an owl mixed with a koala, hence his name. It is mentioned that there aren’t many members of his species left, and most of his relatives are dead.

Glimmer

Next on our PoP wish list is Glimmer. Glimmer is the Princess of Bright Moon, the very beautiful daughter of Queen Angella and King Micah. She was the original leader of the Great Rebellion of Etheria until Adora took over and helped to establish much of its support structure.

Frosta

Frosta has already been released for the Mastervers line, but we have not gottenm her in the Origins line. So it would be great to get her in the Cartoon Collection. Frosta was Queen of Castle Chill in the Kingdom of Snows on Etheria. She was a powerful ice sorceress and brought her formidable powers to bear as a member of the Great Rebellion. She was able to control ice and snow at will; this allowed her to freeze any object or enemy, as well as to use sheets of ice as a mode of transportation. She found herself irresistibly drawn to He-Man on at least one occasion, although he was put off somewhat by her aggressive advances.

The Evil Horde

Eternal Customs on Facebook did a spectacular job on creating 3D renderings of what MOTU Origins Cartoon inspired figures would look like.

We saw several figures teased on Hordak’s card back whiich a few have already been released in the Origins line. But there are some figures we have yet to see and it would be cool if either of them were released in their Cartoon versions!

Mantenna -Filmation style

When the Horde appear in the She-Ra: Princess of Power series, Mantenna retains his “spy sight” from the minicomics, and can fire energy beams of different varieties from his eyes, such as stun beams, gravity distortion beams, and freeze rays. Mantenna is a nervous stuttering imbecile and is mainly used for comic relief, with a running gag that Hordak frequently sends him down a trap door in front of his throne for any number of reasons.

Mantenna was released in the MOTU Origins line in his classic vintage style. But we did see Mantenna released in his Filmation cartoon style for the
MOTU Classic Club Grayskull Mantenna. A Cartoon Collection version of him might look like this.

Leech -Filmation style

Leech appears in animated form in She-Ra: Princess of Power, in which the Horde are the main villains. He is regularly seen among the main Horde members, but rarely showcases his power suction ability and receives generally little character development and no episodes feature him in a spotlight role.

Modulok

Shortly after his figure was released, Modulok appears on the toy line’s accompanying cartoon series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by Filmation. Although the Evil Horde are used as the main villains in the spin-off series She-Ra, rather than He-Man, Modulok is given the unique honor of making his debut on He-Man instead. Halfway through the first season of Filmation’s spin-off series, She-Ra: Princess of Power, Modulok is incorporated into the She-Ra series, the only character from either show to be transferred permanently from one to the other. This occurs in the episode “Gateway to Trouble” in which Modulok builds a device for Skeletor which can open a portal to Etheria to transport his whole army to the planet.

Grizzlor -Filmation style

Grizzlor was initially portrayed as a competent and threatening member of the Horde, overseeing Beast Island. Like many of Hordak’s other warriors, he was said to be a product of Horde science, implying he had once been a normal creature or possibly human. He was depicted as rather muscular, with hair coverings similar to his action figure. Over time, the Filmation animated series increasingly depicted Grizzlor as a bumbling henchman, often bearing the brunt of Hordak’s wrath. Occasionally, he worked as part of Catra’s Force Squad, though he did not like taking orders from her. He displayed a strong dislike of Mantenna, and the pair would often bicker.

We know what this figure might look like as he was already released for the MOTU Classics Club Grayskull line. He was also recently released for the Masterverse line and he was in the Pop cartoon style.

Catra

Catra is a power hungry member of the Evil Horde and is one of Hordak’s minions. Although initially specked out to be She Ra’s main nemesis, the Filmation crew decided to go in a different direction. It’s a mystery where her loyalties lay as in one episode she joins Skeltor to annihilate Hordak to become the Queen of the Magicats. She doesn’t really get along well with others as she often has her own wishes to overthrow Hordak and she does not play nicely with her other female characters in the cartoon, namely Scorpia.
