    I'd rather have Fearless Photog from those parts from Sy-kone.

    Good question. The only thing I've ever seen him say about Strobo is asking who he is.

    What media did Strobo appear in? Perhaps it's in a comic or book that TG has already said they didn't have the rights to? What he a UK character?

    Strobo appeared in a short comic featured in The Masters of The Universe Magazine from the 80's.

    Surely he must be available if he appeared there?

    I dont really want him but if he comes out at the end of the line then it wouldn't hurt and will probably feed my need for more MOTUC after all the better characters have been made.

    I'm almost positive that TG stated somewhere that he is in fact a possinility. Sign me up fro Strobo! (Photog, too, when/if he becomes available.)
    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

    3) Do Mattel have the rights to make Strobo a character who appeared in Masters of the Universe issue #16?

    Not at this time. Yes, we are aware many of the parts are available between Zodac and Sy-Klone! We expect to see some cool customs online later this year from fans!
    And there we go.

    I'd like to know if MasterEnglish will be tackling an updated version of his awesome Strobo custom. I'm very tempted to make my own now.
    MasterEnglish, what did you use for the gun in your custom?

    That doesn't even make sense. They have the rights to make the PoP designs from their "Style Guide" which were created at Filmation's studio by Filmation and Mattel...supposedly, yet they don't have the rights to make Strobo who first appeared in their very own magazine created by Mattel.

    ...what?

    This really doesn't make sense. If Mattel doesn't own the rights to this character who appeared in their own publication, who does?!?

    Gah...the person who answered that question either has no idea who Strobo is, or Mattel has the worst legal team ever. How do they not have rights to media from their own magazine?

    Wow, I could have sworn that quite the opposite was true. That's stinky; I want a Strobo!

    That's interesting...Mattel's own publication and they can't make him? Is he a Paul Kirchner character or something?

    The magazine was published by Lorimar, so that may be where the rights issue comes into play. I don't get it either.

    Why would someone hold on to the rights of Strobo? Is it for the Strobo movie coming out next summer?

    Mattel is awesome. One of the most important companys of toys of the world and they don´t have the rights to make their own characters. Awesome...

    Rather have Phearless Photog. Or Songster. Or any vintage figure first, from the 80's to New Adventures.

    I wont say no, but I doubt I'd be interested.

    At first I didnt care for Strobo but I've warmed up to him. I'd get him. I like the Cosmic Enforcers.
    I also would love a Fearless Photog.

    If you look at it like that, then I agree.

    But I took it to mean as a sub figure.

    So Yes, let's see more varients of other characters. After Kobra Khan I expect Camo Khan even though I've little to no intrest, except I'd finally have a Snake man Khan to go with them since I always had Khan with Skeletor, of course.

    Ok, fine I'm good with a Camo Khan. He was specifically a snakeman member right?

    Anyway, any links to strobo? I know he's a sy-klone zodac mash up but perhaps a link is here already I missed?

    Again, as long as it's a varient instead of a sub. Go for it.

    All figures are sub figures. Except for re-issues and the SDCC exclusives.
