    I think an Illumina and cat two-pack would hit the spot quite nicely.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    The idea is definitely growing on me. We need more female masters and the options are so limited (I can only think of Hawke at the moment). As long as they keep the females coming at a decent rate (at least 4 in 2011 is a good start), then I'd love if Illumina made it out at some point.

    I am a little nervous though that adding more females might somehow jeopardize some of the POP girls. For whatever reason, lots of fans are anti-female so they can really only allow so many slots to female figures. Remember the whole "too many females" thread and that was when we were getting A-listers like Teela, Evil-Lyn and Adora. Can you imagine the uproar if the females are Netossa, Starla and Illumina? I know its totally irrational and theres no reason why we cant get all the POP girls and Illumina but its still a bit of a concern.

    I like how she appears in this piece of art by Emiliano, but maybe lose the utility belt anklet. Otherwise she's a great looking character and one I've been anxious to find out more since I seen her promo in the comics.

    As i understood, she is at least an option again and that´s a good thing!

    I like "MAYBES" a lot better then "NOS".

    Her outfit would be a little problem, i guess, with all the clothing she wears. pants, skirt and long sleeves but as i´m saying, i trust the 4 Horsemen, they would come up with a nice idea!

    I think she'd be a great sub figure if nothing else.

    I don't know if Illumina herself is an option, but apparently unique characters from MVC *might* be game. The information comes courtesy of a thread started by Darkspecter entitled 'Unique MVC MOTU Characters in MOTUC News'.

    Shecky's right. I specifically named Illumina in my examples too.

    Even if they have acknowledged they do have the MVC rights and can use any of the characters, are you sure they would use a character whose introduction into canon they basically vetoed?

    I mean, they can use her if they want, but would they want to with all the other characters available?

    i think if they're willing to risk possible changes in demand for something like Molar, then i think Illumina has at "least" a chance.

    Molarr was in a skit on a well know TV show, Illumina was an advertisement with no back story. Sorry but theres a huge difference I don`t think anything has changed since the first announcement regarding Illumina

    And Gygor was a concept idea that few, if any, knew about six months before he was announced. And Vikor was an original idea scrapped by Mattel in favor of the He-Man we know. Wide spread recognition obviously isn't a pre-requisite for inclusion in the line.

    I understand if Mattel simply thinks there isn't enough interest in the character to make her, but the reasons given, that she's "too complicated" to fit into their new canon, has bothered me from the start. When the new story becomes more important than making cool figures for the line, the story has become a millstone, not a marketing tool, for this line. Nothing should be off limits simply because of a lackluster storyline that a lot of folks aren't following anyway. The line is supposed to encompass all eras and concepts of MOTU; limiting it artificially in this way is counterproductive.

    Not true.
    Illumina has a very well defined backstory

    I think he meant a background known to the public...

    But while we´re at it... Would you care to share some bits and pieces of her backstory?

    It is public, we talked amny times about it, just make a search for Illumina, you'll find lots of info.
    Look for a thread called something like Hordak trapped in Despondos, a nice users made a list of all the info I gave over time

    I'm curious to know what people first impression of Illumina was when that ad was printed?
    I assumed she was an evil character and was quite surprised when Emiliano revealed she was an heroic Guardian of Grayskull.

    I assumed she was a good guy, or at least not evil, because she was wearing white and appeared powerful but not sinister and mean. I loved how LOTR she looked too.

    The thread is here (LOTS of cool info revealed here BTW, and not just about Illumina):
    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...ight=despondos

    Of Illumina, Telkan 2 collected this:

      At the time when the Mystic Wall was created she was on the Dark Hemisphere of Eternia, which effectively trapped her there. Prior to this, however, she assisted Dekker in the teaching of Duncan.

      Although a heroic force, it has been said that she was very cold blooded.
    I tried to include as much accurate info as I could in the unofficial bio:

    But I guessed about Gar Firian and the level of her interaction with Dekker and MAA's regiment.

    What bothers me the most is Toyguru's claim in his Roast Gooble Dinner interview that the new Classics canon was created to allow as many characters as possible to be made. By not including Illumina in the line his statement seems completely false.

    It's politics. Mattel has beef against Val and Emilliano, but won't say what. Fans think it might have been a Toyfare article that revealed ideas from their comic that would have come to light had 200X not been canceled. Mattel won't even let the guys show the rest of the 200X Encyclopedia even though 200X is retired.

    Now see...Mattel could just write a bio like gbagok's and also add her light powers to the mix and that's perfect.

    She belongs to a secret underground society like the Illuminati (no pun intended).
