The first wave of the Princess of Power toy line was a huge hit with the female toy market, as well as with the boys. It seemed that all kids were looking to add to their MOTU/POP world, and Princess of Power was the perfect compliment to the Masters of the Universe line. Of course it didn’t hurt that The Princess of Power animated series by Filmation was still running strong, while the Masters of the Universe animated series had already been cancelled the year before. He-Man and friends would still make the occasional appearances in She-Ra’s world, but Princess of Power had proved that it could stand on its own feet without having to lean on the MOTU brand. Unfortunately, the Princess of Power series would ultimately be cancelled on December 2, 1986. Once again, there was no original comic books series to accompany the show.

The second wave of the Princess of Power line, gave us 8 new figures in 1986, including new versions of She-Ra and Catra. The Great Rebellion team increased their ranks with Flutterina, Mermista, Peekablue, Perfuma, Sweet Bee and a brand new version of She-Ra called Starburst She-Ra. The Evil Horde got a little love also with Entrapta and a new version of Catra called Scratchin’ Sound Catra. We also got four new creatures, including three new Crystal horses for our figures and a new big cat ride for Catra named Clawdeen. One new vehicle, the Sea Harp and one new playset, Crystal Falls were also both released by Mattel. Since the first wave of Fantastic Fashions were such a big hit, a second wave of 8 brand new sets were produced as well.

The packaging for the Princess of Power line for wave 2 remained virtually identical to the previous wave the year before. It featured the POP logo at the top of the card, just above a pink starburst that seemed to jump out at you, along with the name of the character above the bubble. A beautifully drawn portrait of She-Ra riding her steed, Swift Wind sat directly in the middle of the card, and was the same portrait on every wave 1 card, regardless of the character or allegiance. The only exception were the creatures and horses. The closed box packaging was replaced with an open face box so you could see the horses inside.
