    Ummm--yes it is indeed "less lacking" when considering POP/NA/200x---sales numbers prove it. You can quantify all ya want, but that fact doesn't change---so that's why I didn't include them....and,...

    You know---I'm not really sure... w/out looking, I'd say that it was either Webstor (a favorite character of mine), or whoever rounded out the original MOTU 8 in MOTUC. That said, it was really...

    I don't see how "vintage MOTU figure character completing" in the MOTUC line is "completist" in any related sense of the word in the context of your JLU toy line example--- or any other figure line...

    ...most likely they didn't have any themes attached to them at all. I think that was the point.

    At least 254, as I didn't post about the sub purchase I made yesterday til just now.

    I'm assuming that the sub concept was an option proposed in the beginning, as a potential plan for staying on target w/character releases. At the planning stages of MOTUC, they'd've known that,...

    If the word "bio" is family-friendly code, then I'm right there with ya, ya scoundrel!:hmwink:

    Admittedly, it'd stink not to have He-Man and Skeletor in my display, but a huge point of this thread is HAVING to eliminate figures we'd normally want to keep.
    With all respect: It's incorrect to...

    My post that is five posts above yours offers an answer to your question.

    Ghostbusters and DC, ultimately are but toy ship franchises passing in the night of Mattel's workshop. If they want to keep brand recognition up, they better keep dumping money into MOTU any feasible...

    Great choices... they are up thyere for me, and I wish I could include those two---Trap-Jaw is another one.... and BEAST MAN!

    But, as far as cool looking Skeletor baddies: Mer-Man and Webstor for...

    Thanks!

    Admittedly, a tad convoluted, BUT the one element that kept me moving forward with it, is the mind-control-telepathy ideas working together. The idea that Beast Man uses telepathy to...

    I'll have to check out that Transformer character. "Combine" characters I've been influenced by have been DCU's Composite Superman and Amazo as well Marvel's Iron Patriot (even though I really don't...

    I was distracted by some of the bio plot points included in your first post. If I'd have gotten that your angle was purely a "visual busyness" thing from the start, I likely wouldn't have publically...

    Thanks.

    I appreciate you contributing to the thread. You've piqued my curiosity with your criticism. It's undeniable that there are a lot of MOTU elements at play in Mer-Beast. Some are "visual"...

    You know, the more I think about it, the more unique it seems to be---one was obsessed over the millionaire playboy, and one was obsessed over the superhero. Pretty divergent.

    "MER-BEAST" is my second foray into fan-created MOTU/MOTUC characters (following the GUITARIBUL "Evil Master Of Sound" character)

    I'd say that your checklist more or less confirms my point.

    A toy company like Mattel (via Scott and other crucial Mattel staff responsible for MOTUC) can't be perfect, and with the MOTUC line...

    Yes? No? How to answer that? The "little guy" being oppressed by a giant corporation/big bad boss shouldn't be owned by a 20 year old movie.

    That's the naysayers opinions and they are welcome to them. The facts are that the line has lasted longer than most Net-based lines and has hit very high heights with things like Castle Grayskull....

    I wouldn't have guessed that from reading your post which was so entirely trashing on a thing of which I saw SOME kind of connection to the proponents of the original comics.

    That said---I take...

    What the heck is with spelling "Anwat Gar" with a second "w"---this place has to do with Keldor and Sy-Clone's race, not the joke-rock band. Right?
