    Support for vintage "Create a Character" magazine figures.

    As most of us know, back in the 80's Mattel held a Create a Character contest, which The Fearless Photog was chosen as the winner. But do you remember the 4 cut-out warriors that were in the vintage magazine that could be used to make your own figure? I would love to see these 4 warriors made somewhere down the line for MOTUC. In fact, maybe these 4 warrior outfits can be used to sneak The 4 Horsemen into MOTU as figures. I think they deserve to be put into figure form after all they have done for our beloved line. I can see Cornboy as the Warrior in Green right now. Something for fun if people don't want to take these characters too seriously. Here is a pic of them for those of you who don't remember them.

    That would be a blast. Kinda like a Modulok or Multi-Bot build your own....I am on deck with that!

    I took the images you attached and cut them up - will post constructed character pics here in a few

    Here they are constructed

    I could go for any of those as bonus figures or SDCC exclusives or something.

    never seen them before, thank for sharing!
    i like the idea of 4h being represented as motuc, but, to tell the truth, i was thinking more about an actual hosemen of apocalypse theme...with corn boy playing the role of famine, of course!

    Personally I like the cat guy and the purple knight. The other two feel like they were rush jobs. Anyhoo, the horsemen could make these into legitimate MOTU characters easily

    After seeing what they did with Whiplash, I have even more confidence in their skills.

    That'd be neat actually. A 4 pack would really be cool to get them all at once. Have them with interchangeable parts and we'd be good to go. They are goofy characters, but it'd still be fun. Let's face it, if it was done and put on the Matty site, it'd sell out too no matter who likes or doesn't like the figures.

    SDCC 4-Pack!!! Sign me up!

    I have never seen these, but I would love to see them added to the line.

    (You'd be hard-pressed to find an idea I wouldn't like for MOTUC.)
    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

    Lol, those 'create your own designs' are a bit like a leading question.

    These would be an awesome SDCC exclusive! If we can get Mo-Larr, why not these guys.

    i would like to see RAW take these in his thread, and use existing parts, and see how cool he could construct them.

    I don't think characters like this deserve completely new tooling.

    and to be perfectly honest. they are pretty weak as far as how they look in my opinion.

    a thundercat, a voltron, a dungeon and dragon evil knight....

    the do nothing for me on the "masters" front.


    but i would not be against them.

    I think I'd like it if they made this like Modulok or Multibot so we can put the pieces together as we see fit!

    G'day Dayton. Are you able to rearrange those pics with different legs and heads for different bodies so we can see what mix&match may look like?
    Thanks.

    I was wanting to take the file and turn it into a flash app so you can move them around.....let me see what I can do

    Here you are

    http://www.jackpoe.com/images/motu/cac.htm

    The parts of the characters are still a bit messy but you can click and drag the parts around now

    Enjoy!

    I don't know from those drawings. Not really. But knowing what the 4H Can do I would say maybe. I'd like to see mock ups of these before agreeing.
