    At first i was jealous of all the attention this thread had gotten, and then, upon further review, wow... collaborations are a lot like crossing the streams. (C'mon, who else likes ghostbusters ) AWESOME stuff. Definitely want to see this one a website of it's own.

    But good eye none the less, Marty.
    You are right...they weren't the Terra Cotta so commonly referred to (reddish brown), however, a tan terra cotta...I just wondered...I hope you are not offended by my critque of color...

    in case you haven't noticed yet, in this story, they're called Terrorcotta, not Terracotta soldiers.

    the way i see it, they're not intended to be like the real Terracotta soldiers.

    This is also true. In fact the name is deliberate. We thought, how would Mattel name it because essentially all MotU characters' names are a play on words etc. I originally had Terrorcutter but it was agreed that Terrorcotta just sounded better. (this sounds like a DVD commentary! )

    No worries, I just chose to use the color scheme of the stone warriors from the episode with Anwat Gar. I didn't think about using the terra cotta clay color (or any warm earthy color). To satisfy curiosity though, here's what that might have looked like.

    Hey, Mattel could break into the candy business and make him out of chocolate!

    Hey G! Awesome! Maybe these guys could be the grunts of Jitsu's army and the Stone ones are the more hard-arse General types....
    He-Man can take care of the brown ones with one punch but the stone guys prove more of a challenge!

    Hey Ice,

    It looks like your going with the premise that Anwat Garians resemble Asians. That's fine; but will the story explain why Syclone has blue skin?

    Again, great stuff!

    Well there was going to be a little something at the end, but I dropped it because I wasn't sure if Sy-Klone is supposed to be a member of Keldor's race or not (and I don't know what that story is, so I thought best to avoid it). I don't know if the official plan was to make Keldor's race originate from Anwat Gar, but we chose not to go that way with this story since we wanted to bring in classic characters like Jitsu and Leon and Consul Ari.

    EDIT: Nice idea about the army ranks, Iceman. We have another variant!

    I dont think Keldor would have come from Gar anyways.

    Woohoo! Chase Terrorcotta!

    Dude!!!

    That is a GREAT idea!!!

    The Terra Cotta ones are reg. grunts and the stone ones are generals!!!

    PLUS, it gives Mattel the REPAINT option!!! He! HE! he!

    Thanks for doing this...I wasn't complaining...I was only wondering...

    The color change and the idea of Andrew with the ranks...is GREAT!!!

    I totally missed the spelling of them "Terrorcotta." Duh....

    Sorry if I came off as being overly critical...I like it when people give me educated opinions and suggestions.

    Hey no worries Marty!! Now we have an extra 'character'!

    Maybe Gbagok and I will do a 'commentary' to provide insight as to how the whole project evolved!

    I think it is a cool idea to seperate the ranks of the Terrorcota warriors through their color. However I think that the regulars should be the grey one´s and the leaders the clay color ones.

    Note, this is not a complaint just an idea since it is always like this that regular troops have normal inconspicuous color schemes and their leaders not. Right now the only ones I can think of are the Battle Droids at Star Wars. They all have a normal color scheme and the higher ranks have a blue, red or yellow colored part on their body. Well just a thought.


    Take care.

    Maybe the jewels on their helmets and chest could be different colors based on their rank level...then the chase figure could be a jewel color...like the highest level general has a gold jewel and is Mattel's sickest/rarest chase yet with only 100 made...He! he! he!

    dont know about customs but you'll see a few skins
