1980s She-Ra Figurine

She-Ra: Princess of Power hit television screens in 1985, marketed to young girls as a complement to the He-Man series, that was marketed at young boys. A series of figurine toys like this one followed the animated series.

This particular figurine is of a character called 'Double Trouble' who was a shape-shifting double agent spy for She-Ra, although the character didn't appear in the cartoons. 

In a recent reboot of the series, the princesses have skills and interests ranging from science to sculpting, some of the princesses are dating other girls, some boys. The character Double Trouble reappears as a non-binary shape-shifter.
