Iron Studios – 1/10 Statue
Pre-order: Available 2023 Q4
Paying close attention to any possible threat to her right flank, the official Eternian leader tightly holds her longsword, protecting her opposite side with a small but efficient shield. Raised in the Royal Palace, she was trained since her childhood by her father, one of the planet’s greatest warriors, improving her combat skills from an early age. By her side, a small humanoid with the features of a blue elf, with his body and face almost completely hidden under a crimson cloak and hat and a purple scarf, floats gesturing his small hands, casting a protective spell for them both that manifests in the shape of blue energy tentacles with the texture of crystals. Thus, Iron Studios proudly present another statue in their MOTU line with ‘Teela and Orko Deluxe – Masters of the Universe – Art Scale 1/10’, with Eternia’s greatest warrior and the small and brave but sometimes clumsy Trollan sorcerer, together over a pedestal of spiky rocks from a battlefield.
Daughter of the Sorceress, due to her responsibilities as guardian of Castle Grayskull, the mystic priestess left Teela being taken care of by Man-At-Arms when she was just a child, that raised her like a daughter. Even though choosing to hide her identity and origin to keep her safe from danger, and training her so that she could defend herself, Man-At-Arms couldn’t hold the rebellious, impetuous, and independent nature of the beautiful young lady, that thanks to her relentless willpower ended up becoming the Captain of the Royal Guard. Despite her excellent fighting skills and good common sense, Teela tends to be careless and usually, she goes against her father’s orders. With strong friendship bonds with Prince Adam, she’s also responsible for his training, and many times she scolds him for his apparent lack of courage and judgment, without knowing that he and He-Man are the same person. Orko first appeared in the animated series in 1983, native of Trolla, a mystic world from another dimension, where the inhabitants hide their appearance behind robes as tradition and move by levitating, even though he was a talented mage in his home world, due to the different laws of nature of Eternia, his spells usually go wrong, putting him, his friends, and even his enemies in comic situations. Taken to Eternia by a cosmic storm, Orko became one of Adam’s closest friends and he’s one of the few that knows about his double identity as He-Man. Although considered a type of Jester in the Royal Palace, he proved to be a good friend and a valuable ally, even though his powers are unpredictable.
