    Who Would Buy HEROES OF THE UNIVERSE Figures?

    OK, this is a bit of a joke thread, so let's have some light hearted fun. I have came up with a 'Knock Off' line that SUPER 7 could do called HEROES OF THE UNIVERSE. The idea is that using MOTU style bucks, SUPER 7 would do a line of figures extremely similar to certain lines from the past, but they would be under a different name to avoid copyright issues.

    Pretend this could happen, and that it would take NO resources from MOTUC! These would be high quality knock-offs, mainly differing in name only. They would be almost exactly like MOTU figures.

    Again, this is meant as a bit of fun. There's no need to rudely tell me that this cannot work, or that the idea is stupid and that I'm an idiot. I already know that. Haha!

    So far, I have....

    -SPACE DEPUTY ( BRAVE STARR )
    -DARKSTAR ( BLACKSTAR )
    -CLEAR STAR ( CRYSTAR )
    -CASTLES & CREATURES ( DUNGEONS & DRAGONS )
    -WAR KING ( The old Remco Warlord line )

    Who would be interested? Who has some other ideas?

    If I don't get sued for copyright infringement, I'll likely still get in trouble for just how AWFUL that last one is! [^D

    I wish this could happen. It would really be fun!

    I just thought of a few more:

    -KING of the JUNGLE ( TARZAN )
    -MASTER OF MARS ( JOHN CARTER of MARS )

    ...and a couple that fall under Public Domain:

    -THREE MUSKETEERS
    -ROBIN HOOD

    I would 100 percent want John Blackstar & Crystar. I would also want Their respective main villain. As per usual throw in a Thundarr and I am issuing forth buckets of joy. Do a Skulk (Sectaurs) and I'm over the moon.

    I'm liking the different ideas here especially Blackstar.
