    Hey everyone should also be sure to check out: See-Shell by COTU (Customs of the Universe) for more images of See-Shell as a classic-style figure...

    See-Shell rocks. One of the best fan-created characters I've seen in a long time, IMO. As usual, BBM's done an outstanding job bringing him into the 200x style!

    Love the name, btw. It's PERFECT.

    Hey HordeMonkey thanks for the kind words, yeah I love the character, too, and I'm especially appreciative to Matt (Skeletoncrew) of CotU for making me realize how much cooler he'd be as a Heroic Master than an Evil Warrior (since the villains already have Mer-Man and Clawful in their oceanic ranks). BBM really did hit it out of the park with his design for him as well, giving him the more scallop-like shell, the eyespots on his chest, the sea-weed loincloth, and creating the sharks-tooth mace for him.

    P.S. If anyone wants to take a crack at some See-Shell art, I'd love to see it!

    Hey, thanks! I'm glad you dig him, and as for the aquarium, what, you mean like this?



    Well, he's technically not in it , but you get the idea, I'm sure...

Equally at home on land and sea, the already translucent See-Shell possesses the ability to become completely invisible when it suits his needs. Such as when gathering information on Skeletors' dastardly schemes, or when sneaking up on a couple of Evil Warriors in battle! See-Shell considers it his duty to take the fight to all the evil Crusties, but one in particular has become his nemesis, the deadly Lobscure."
    Do we know what Lobscure looks like?
    I couldn't find any pics or references to what his appearance is.

    Yes, he is pitch black, his shell can absorb light, and so he can almost literally become a shadow with substance. When he isn't flexing his power to it's full extent, you can see he is huge, bigger than Clawful, with two large claws, and since he is of a deep-sea Clawdian race he wears a pressurized breather while on land (in classic figure form this would be a Mekaneck armor). He is very slow, but strong, a brilliant tactician, and being almost invisible makes up for his lack of speed.

    NICE! I'll have to put a pic of my new freshwater aquarium on here... I would have to say I had see-shell in mind when I did it.

    Yeah, those are cool! I'll have to post a full-pic of my tank soon, it has a similar theme, but it's even a little more "glassy" although I do have some colored gravel underneath...

    Hey Jason, thanks for the kind words. If there is one thing I like most about him is the (mostly) untapped action feature... at least in MotU terms and yeah, BBM knocked another one out of the park (as usual)!!!!

    Hmmm..... not a bad idea... there is a COTU / classic figure version of Crabite and Lobscure in the works, but I haven't thought of commissioning art on them yet...

    Hey, everyone... don't forget to vote for See-Shell in Royalt's contest!!!

    He's really growing on me. At first I liked him, and now I'm far more interested in seeing what See-Shell is up to. I'm digging the name change, it totally goes with the gimmick of him becoming invisible. Also not too many MOTU characters become invisible (none that I can think of), so way to capitolize on an awesome power that was never really used.

    I had invented a 'glass shrimp' type character which I was going to work on, but I abandoned the idea. Instead of having him like Clawful, a big brute, he'd be a cousin of sorts, slim with an elongated body. Like the pistol shrimp he's based on, would have small powerful pinchers that would deliver 'shockwave' bubble bursts. You may have inspired me enough to continue with him.

    I like your Pistol Shrimp concept... that sounds very cool! You could call him Crack-Shot, the Sinister Shock-wave Shrimp

    I like Crack-Shot. Hmm. I wonder what other names we could brainstorm.

    How about:

    Sea-volver

    Hahaha... Yeah, I thought it was pretty clever when Matt (Skeletoncrew), Rob (Galaxy Warrior) and I brainstormed it up. It a triple sort of pun, It references a "seashell", something you'd find in the water or on the beach, like you would find a crab or crustacean, and mixes in the word "see", which refers to his power of being "see-through" or invisible, and also mixes in the fact he has a "shell", or carapace of his own. So he's a "See-" through "Shell" bearing warrior. See-Shell.
