    Classic Kowl Patent...

    I was using Google's 'patent search' feature, and came across Kowl on there. If you click on the link and scroll down, there are drawings of him. It's the only PoP toy I could find so far (was hoping to come across something Star Sister-related...maybe we could find out how some of them are constructed), but there are tons of MotU toys on there.

    OMG! That is SOOOOOOO neat Tally! Nice find! I always wondered how that mechanism worked! I hope you do find some stuff on the star Sisters! That'd rock my world!

    If I get real desperate, I might take the initiative to try to find a way to contact some of the inventors that are listed. They might be able to give us some cool behind-the-scenes info. about the line.

    2-bad: There's no way to search by character name, because names are not included in the patent descriptions, but there is another way to narrow it down to find MotU characters.

    When you go to Google, there's a search tab that says "More." Click on that and then on "Patents." You're gonna want to do an "advanced patent" search. (There's yet another tab for that) Where it says "assignees name", put Mattel in that box. Then set the dates to the approx. month/years to search for. You have to hunt though all the results, but here's a couple that show up right away..
