    Well, I couldn't post, even a PICTURE of it---so I made a quick "movie" version that you can see here:

    As was my own preference then, and I STILL prefer new or unique characters over variants.


    Even seeing the SDCC variant reveals hasn't changed my take on that.

    I mean, they are great figures...

    If me being "passionately curious" equals me being "mad"---then yes...I'm FURIOUS.


    I won't waste my time anymore either.

    But I have to retort that I don't understand what you're saying.

    Sure---, but unless I hear from a confirmed source that this "exactly" what they're doing--- "out & out manipulation" I'll take it for granted they're telling the truth, or stretching what could be...

    Well---as SpiritOfTeela so bluntly pointed out---the game IS up.

    If Mattel is taking the attitude that they want to "close MOTUC strong", then that mindset becomes HIGHLY questionable, if not...

    "That said?"

    Wait. Hold up.

    EVERYBODY'S heard the line is ending---and that's the point people are trying to make to... um... (for lack of a better term) "your ilk". The integrating of the...

    That's why we have the Count Marzo that we have. If only one version of a character gets made, is that really a "bias" towards a particular MOTU faction or is that Mattel's attempt at a calculated...

    No-Ah, regarding "the appreciation of fine points made on this 'too many variants' issue" the feeling is apparently notably mutual.

    I say this because, as you were replying to my post, I was...

    No, we'd be having an alternate discussion about some other fabrication presumption, when the reality is that MOTUC releases are ever-changing and business-oriented by nature. Every MOTUC fan who's...

    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.

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    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 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)

    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.
