Another Monday Means Another Medusa

Not actually called Medusa, but you know they based this character on the gorgon. This is the She-Demon from the Hercules the Legendary Journeys tv show. Toy Biz made action figures from the Hercules and Xena show during the nineties. She-Demon: Stone Strike Tail is a nice toy, not as detailed as current action figures but it’s a mythological character and those are always cool to collect.

Although her appearance suggests a modern interpretation of Lamia, the She-Demon’s powers and story more closely mirror those of Medusa.

From Wave Two of the ToyBiz HTLJ 5 inch action figure line. The She-Demon as seen in “The Wrong Path.” The She-Demon has a spring-loaded tail. To make her attack, you pull back the tail and then press a button at the bottom to make it spring forward. The She-Demon also comes with a “stone” face mask which will fit over the heads and shoulders of the Hercules and Iolaus figures so you can turn them into stone!
