    Always awesome to hear that the people working on a project are big fans of the actual product.

    Hey Everyone,

    I thought that this was an awesome interview. It is great to see that Toyguru loves the lines that he works on, such as, "MotU:C" and the many "DC" lines. I really think Mattel did well finding someone who can not only do the work but loves the stuff, both through childhood and adulthood.

    Great stuff!

    Take Care,
    Darren
    Mattel please, buy the He-Man and She-Ra cartoons from Entertainment Rights. If you owned Both Filmation related "MotU" cartoons, plus "NA" and "MYP" cartoons, you would be able to distribute any or all 4 cartoons to Television in the lead up to another relaunch or a live action movie. Plus, you could include Filmation and "NA" animated characters in "MotU:C"!

    Long Live 'MOTU'!

    That was great reading! All I have to say is... I'm dead jealous for a job like that. It has to be a dream-come-true. Most of us have to earn our living doing something we wouldn't normally do, but Toyguru would probably do his (or her?) job without pay

    I was always surprised to see what job's were most desired by men.

    I think Maxim or Men's Health had a separate poll results.
    AOL had this one.
    but they were both similar.

    I'm amazed to see my job up there too (comic books)

    I can't lie, it is a great job.
    But it ain't riches and 40 hour a week hours.
    It's not great pay, and very LONG hours if you want to get something out of it.

    Same goes for when you move higher up the toy industry ladder.
    One of the higher ups back during the 2002 days was working 100 hour weeks.

    I believe the only thing left to do is us fans to support the line 100%
    That way we all win.
    My thoughts exactly!

    Another very positive interview about Mattel and MOTUC. I really think this line could be around for a while.

    How cool would a cartoon be based on the original mini comics? Not to get off topic, but Khror got me thinking...
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
