    I wonder, was Gygor THAT popular that no one questioned his existence?
    Yes I know that there are more popular characters than her, but that hasn't stopped Mattel from tossing some super obscure characters to the mix (Gygor, Demo-Man, Vikor, etc.)
    To be fair, 200X wasn't AS known as vintage...
    (personal story: some of my friends didn't KNOW about 200X or NA until I showed them the series)
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Whatever happened to people buying awesome figures, regardless of whether they've heard of them or not? We have fans slowly getting turned onto NA characters that they've been ignoring because these fans thought NA wasn't good. Once they see a new figure, they'll want to know about the character.

    That's how I got into NA... I knew it existed, saw some bits of it, but until MOTUC OPTIKK I did not gave it a chance... Now I'm the guy who wants a MOTUC Drissi more than any other NA toon character!

    TG:
    And people wonder why we are hesitant to do this character! While there is a lot of demand for this rather obscure character on He-Man.org, outside of this very small (but vocal) group, she just isn't ready to make the cut.

    As jzachery illustrates, to most MOTU fans, she is neither known or requested.

    Maybe we will get to her one day, but their are just too many other characters from MOTU, Filmation, POP, NA, 200X and so forth that we want to get to first! Heck, Filmation alone is hundreds of characters, 20-30 of which are extremely fan demanded and it is going to be hard giving up a slot to an obscure character from a pin up when we have the opportunity to do characters like Goat Man, Strobo, Icer, Sea Hawk, Mara, Strong Arm and all the rest! (no offense to those who are asking for her BTW, I mean no foul by you, just offering perceptive as fan sites like He-Man.org and others tend to function in a bubble outside of the larger overall fan base that is out there and the repetitive posting of a few individuals can create the illusion of greater demand then there really is)
    he does recognize there is some support.

    however, now he's added maybe to "we will get to her one day".

    Several people asking for her are just a vocal minority, but one guy saying that he'd like to know who she is represents a vast majority who don't care about her and justifies an "and people wonder why" quip. There isn't enough palm or face for that, Scott.

    Well if it only takes 1 person posting in Ask matty asking who she is, shouldnt it just take one question in Ask Matty to make her extremely wanted?

    It should. I guess it doesn't count that she's been asked about many times in the Mattel Q&A's from all over the web (not JUST He-Man.org) since 2008. Also, different people keep posting Illumina questions in the "Ask Matty" section. This was 1 of 4 or something?

    Regardless, I think it is super important to let people know who Illumina is to give her a much better shot at making it into MOTUC. If the "average collector" sees her and her cat's awesome design and story, I think she will have a LOT more fans. The ones who don't become huge fans of her at least can go "Oh yeah, I know who that is!" when she arrives.

    Take part in Illumina Day and help it all happen!

    You should probably put Bikini "Battle ground" Teela in your list too.
    She is VERY similar to Illumina. She has no history in the normal line, is only known though a DC comic where she had some panels.
    and we got her..

    I'm perfectly fine with having to wait for Illumina for a couple years, but I've been a bit surprised by some reactions that she shouldn't come out until 2017 or 2020. So, the following is a counterpoint to that.

    FIVE Reasons Why Illumina in 2012 Makes Perfect Sense

    1) 2012 is MOTU's 30th Anniversary. Toyguru said the theme of that year will be to finish unfinished business/keep old promises, etc. Mattel is doing that! We're getting the full 3 issues of the mini-comic story "Powers of Grayskull", Fearless Photog (80's never produced, only teased, MOTUC Create-A-Character winner), and the Star Sisters and Glory Bird.

    Illumina fits into this category. She was teased in three issues of the MVC MOTU comic and never appeared in Issue 4 because of Mattel restrictions nearing the end of the 2002 line. That's no different than parts 2 and 3 of the mini-comic not being made or the prototype toys that never got produced (Photog, Star Sisters, etc.). So...it would have been very nice to see the promise of Illumina and her cat come together.

    2) 2012 is also the 10th Anniversary of the 2002 series. To my knowledge, Mattel isn't doing anything to celebrate this. What better way to celebrate, acknowledge or "give a little wink" to fans by producing such a fan-demanded character from that era?

    3) Wind Raider pilot from the Eternia poster, who also appeared on the model toy box, is "what this line is about" (direct Toyguru quote). The same has been said about concept sketch characters (like Gygor, Vikor, Demo-Man and others). Illumina may not be a lost 80's concept drawing, but she is requested and (unlike the vast majority of the lost concepts) she had a story line planned out for her and was going to be used in media. That's big.

    4) Illumina and her cat requires 4-5 new parts (Illumina head, two piece outfit, double bladed staff and cat's hat piece). The cat's saddle can re-use the Griffon's saddle or use Clawdeen's (if/when she gets made). Also, if they make a Spirit figure...if the Four Horsemen can sculpt it in a clever way, it can be re-use for Illumina's cat's hat (they're nearly identical). That brings the total new parts to 4 for TWO full figures. Parts re-use is important and each year, Mattel needs to make characters with low amounts of tooling so they can produce the 1 "100% tooled" figure they can do each year. Releasing a figure like Illumina and her cat, help us get characters like Ram-Man (a proclaimed 100% tooled figure).

    5) Illumina is far from an A-lister and this line is supposed to be given a good mix of C and D-listers each year to help keep the line alive. So far, 2012 is full of a LOT of the characters people consider A-list (toy-wise). We have, so far: Sorceress, Shadow Weaver, Fisto, Kobra Kahn, Stinkor and Slush Head. That's a lot! I know some might argue Slush Head isn't A-list, but for NA he's pretty much the most demanded = A-list. Characters like Illumina help flush out the line so it can last years. Cranking out so many A-listers at once is kind of scary for this line. Once all the "main" 80's characters are gone, how many will stop collection MOTUC altogether? Putting in requested characters who will make cool figures (who are not A-listers) helps the line survive longer (in my opinion).
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Awesome update Emiliano!
    It should be easy enough for Mattel since she has so many shared parts.
    It looks like she would only require a new headsculpt and the armor piece with the Lance weapon. I love the added bracelets of Bubble Power She-Ra!

    Great concept art, Emiliano!

    If this is how the 4H will execute her design, then count me in!

    Though she is an "obscure character" by some people's standards, there is no denying she is cool and could fit easily in the MOTUC pantheon.

    Bring on her cat, too!

    That would make an awesome two-pack, perhaps for the annual 60 dollar-slot. Or Mattel could release just Illumina first if they want to "test" her market potential, and then move on to her cat once this is proven.

    (Sorry, I would like to support this on Facebook, but I don't have an FB account. )

    (as before, I'm not against or for her. I really don't care one way or the other if she ends up on my shelf or not)

    Since everyone keeps denying that nobody knows who she is, I decided to do a little research.

    http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy-a...3&pf=p&pdl=500

    Google. The most used website on the planet. #1 result, Emiliano's blog. Understandable top result. Number 2, this post. Number 3, Shokoti vs Illumina poll on this website. Four, Hunter Knight's custom from a few days ago. 5, a blog from a .org member saying the usual. Six, one of Darkspector's off-site posts about Illumina Day. 7, same, but a different site. 8, Matty's Facebook page, though Facebook pages don't work too well on search results so I don't know what Google found. 9, another Illumina day. 10, something unrelated. 11, her topic page on Fwoosh, so finally a non-org related result. 12 - 16, unrelated. 17, Hunter's custom on another site. 18, fan art on the org. 19, the blog from #5. 20, another Illumina Day post. After this, it's mostly unrelated stuff and a few repeats like Hunter's custom.

    This is what Scott has been talking about. Even Google has a hard time finding anything outside of this website about her, or this website's members posting elsewhere about her. Talk all you want about how much you want her, but in the end she's no less obscure than Josh, and Goat Man. Stop thinking otherwise.

    I don't think anybody thinks she isn't obscure.
    But still a lot of people here like her a lot, and since many obscure characters found place in the line, we don't see why not her
    Try to do the same research on Gygor on Vikor, you'll get exactly the same kind of results. Try Wind Raider pilot, a figure that most likely will be made. Try Lodar

    If by mentioning them, you're trying to prove they shouldn't have been made at all, then yes. They are too obscure... but that doesn't mean that she should be made by the same logic. Logic says that they shouldn't have been in the first place, not that every obscure character should be because they were.

    No, logic doens't say that. Why they shoulnd't have been made? People like them, so why not?
