All I'm saying they incorporated Matt Trakker in G.I. Joe . And it would be cool. If they did the same with Blackstar and MOTU.
What surprises me is that I thought that people here were also 4horsemen fans... I have faith in a 4horseman sculpted product. I think they could make an awesome Blackstar or anything for that matter. If the Horsemen sculpt it I am pretty sure ts gonna be awesome enough for most people to buy.
But then again the line did die at some point....oh well I like to think that I did my part to keep the line alive by buying the things that most fans here didn't like.
Blackstar in He-Man cartoon...
As for how I "felt" as a kid about it.. well, kids are allowed to have imaginations:) And when "exact" images from one cartoon pop up in another, its hard not to connect those properties when you have seen them as a 10 year old child with your own eyes.
I love MOTU, and I too don't really see a need to introduce characters from outside of the property to it. But it has been done before. Just look at the first mainstream He-Man comic... it had him fighting SUPERMAN!
This is a great idea, extremely unlikely but I would love a MOTUC Blackstar figure! :hmgrin:
a statue is not a person, or a character.
As far as we know, Blackstar has never been, and is not a part of the MOTU mythos.
as such, I feel a figure, should it even be possible, is not warranted.
that's my opinion.
They were cartoons made by the same company, of course little 'inside jokes' are gonna get slipped in.
that doesn't mean we need to shoehorn every Filmation character into the line. Because then where does it end?
as I said before, Saint Elsewhere, and the Wold Newton Family, lie that way. I'd really rather not.
let's put it a different way.
He-Man met Superman, does that mean we should get Warlord figures in MOTUC?, Since the universes crossed over once, there's a connection.
and if Warlord is possible, why not Kamandi, or OMAC?
I'm sure you could say "Well, couldn't DCUC do those?", the answer, of course is YES, but I want them in MOTUC.
why?, because there's a connection!
see? It doesn't hold up.
Maybe in MOTUC, Marlena is really from Krypton... so there's a deeper connection than we all think! :hmlol:
Blackstar was an in-joke in the cartoon.
That's all it was.
There won't be any Blackstar MOTUC figures. :)
There's actually two good toylines that I want to see in MOTUC as well as MOTU
Princess of Power
That is all
I'd want Fearless Photog before I'd want Blackstar. Heck, I'd want Strobo before Blackstar.
But if they did make him many many many years into this line then I think they should at least make him black like was originally intended.
If only blackstar could have been concieved a few years later when the Cosby/Michael Jackson rage was in full swing. The execs might have taken a chance on a "Black" Blackstar.
We probably won't get this figure and he would be way back on most of our want lists even if he were a real possiblity. I'd rather see another tpy company pick up the line and serve up a reboot - Thundercats is also over due for some new figures.
I would buy him, and probably his "mega-Evil" guy I remeber liking them. I also enjoyed their swords. That is about as far into that series I would care about. AND the flying dragon. Naturally :)
Personally I would rather see them incorporate Thundercats into the line. Ever since I saw the Lion guy in the MYP cartoon I thought the connection could be made.
I would think Blackstar would be an incredibly easy custom out of a standard He-Man. Boots and "furries" are good to go. sand down the studs on his right bracelet and belt. Left arm and belt would need a touch of work. Neck piece and sword would have to be made from scratch. Paint hair black, eyes brown.
Id like one even though it has almost no chance of happening. Id love to have a Blackstar , the villian & that girl. I think trying to find who holds the rights would be a nightmare in its self. I think BCI Guy is right.
"I SMELL CUSTOM!"
I am all for incorporating Blackstar into MotUC!
I wouldn't mind seeing a few make it into the line. I had a few as a kid and have bought a couple MOC.
Yeah, it's a year later and I still think it would be cool.
Blackstar is really cool. I'd love to see him in MOTUC. Though, I don't really expect to. There are a lot of other characters for Mattel to worry about.
Blackstar was not only before my time, in terms of toys, but so short-lived, I barely know anything about him.
So I'd have to pass on that one.
I'd want a figure for Blackstar's buddy, Klone! Thats something I don't recall seeing in MOTU mythos - a shapeshifter.
