    What's your level of DCUC/MOTUC Acceptance?

    Been meaning to ask this for a little while after I finally broke down and got the Luthor/Skeletor set. I'll probably have to search elsewhere for the Supes/He-Man one.

    Anyway, just wanting to get a concensus of everyone's continuity: do you accept the DC characters in MOTU and vice versa in your personal canon? Do you like to display or store figures both lines together? I understand there's plenty of folks who end up with re-release duplicates on the DC side just to get the MOTUC repaints and I'm not asking about that. Do you see the DC characters and the MOTU characters existing in the same realm since we've gotten these two packs? Should the two DC comics previously published be the only crossover? What are your thoughts on the two properties coexisting?

    As a collector no they don't have a place in the line together, from the point of view of comic books and crossovers...sure why not.

    Yes, for me the DC characters exist in the same universe as MOTUC.
    But not only DC, Marvel characters do too.
    In my mind, DC and Marvel exist on the same earth just like in the old 70's comic crossovers.

    In my MOTUC cannon Superman is transported to Eternia just like he was in DC Presents #47.
    After returning home, he keeps the existence of Eternia and Castle Grayskull a secret.
    Years later He-Man and his friends find themselves on Earth similar to the '87 movie and the existence of Eternia and Grayskull are finally revealed to Earth. Several villains (both DC and Marvel) leave for Eternia to get the power of Grayskull for themselves. They are pursued by several heroes (again both DC and Marvel), who join forces with He-Man and the Masters.

    As far as displaying figures goes, I generally don't mix displays, but I do have my Battle Armor He-Man displayed alongside my (few) DCUC and Marvel Legends figs.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    Storywise, I like the idea of them all existing in the same universe, but as far as the toys themselves go and how I've displayed them in the past... no, I don't mix the lines at all simply because the scale is so out of whack. When it was first first announced that we would be getting these 2-packs my excitement level went through the roof because I thought that this meant we were getting He-Man vs. Superman with an all-new figure of Superman using the MOTUC male buck. So when the details and pictures were finally revealed I was pretty underwhelmed that it was just a DCUC figure packed in with a MOTUC figure.

    i don't like the cross-over aspect of DCUC/MOTUC one bit - so for me, my acceptance is very low ...

    I am in the same boat as my pal Slo-Man here. I like the idea of DC and MOTU crossing over.

    I display only the DCU figs from the two-packs with my Classics, though.
    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

    im always up for crossovers and since Eternia was in the DC universe at one time (as the comics prove) this one males a lot of sense

    For me, Earth-1 Superman visited Eternia-1, and kept its existence secret, before he was retconned out of existence in Crisis. After that, I like to leave a little mystery.

    I do keep this Ed McGinnis Superman amongst my MOTUC figures, because he fits the scale best. I guess for me, and my streamlined canon, it did happen... until the Crisis. After that, it was a dream or a story Adam recounts to his son Dare before bedtime. After all, I'm sure Queen Marlena would have told her great grandson many tales of Superman she remembered from her native planet.

    I love an all inclusive canon!

    There is no cross over in my universe, and none in DC and Marvel. In my cannon, DC and Marvel characters are aware of each others existence, but DC characters come from non-specific fictional places as Marvel characters come from somewhere in the real world. Example, Gotham City, we know is New York but it isn't actually New York, where as Peter Parker, Fantastic Four and the X-Men all come from New York. (I know I'm leaving out several)

    No crossover at all. When I purchase the 2-packs I know exactly why I love & collect MOTU. DC characters are lucky, excuse me, privileged to be packaged alongside such superiority.

    I've got some DCUC, so I don't mind the combo, especially when I don't have either figure in the pack.

    In "fiction", no, there's no crossover there. I like the DC Comic crossovers for what they were, but that doesn't mean I lump them together.
    Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!

    If these ever reach Europe, there's going to be at least one set of DC figures on ebay
    Tweet Me!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    No acceptance of the crossover. I consider these packs mini comic variant packs and completely ignore the DC figures.

    My MOTUverse is a multiverse, which has room for all characters from every toy line imaginable.

    Even though I display different toy lines in different places, there are nothing that really prevents me from mixing figures from different lines.

    Exactly! I have recently (like 6 weeks ago) started collecting DCU, I know nothing about comics except whats on the bios on the card backs. I love the figures and in a short time have gotten 58.

    But the DCU vs MOTUC sets are all about MOTU for me, though Im not bothering with the last ones cos they are gawd awful on the card!

    I have the 1st two and aint opening them, they look better sealed than losse IMO!

    Growing up all my toys were in the same universe so I say yes. Ghostbusters, Ninja Turtles, He-man, X-men, and Spawn all fought side by side against Apocalypse and his team of evil warriors from around the universe. I'm not saying every character should crossover but the possibility should always be there.

    No, other than the whole "multi-verse" kinda thing. While I enjoy the comic it came with, and the idea of things being able to "Cross over" I'd say it like this:

    While DC & Marvel have crossed over at times, DC & MOTU is even more remote even though technically possible, as I imagine anywhere is accessible if you search the byways of the multiverse for long enough.

    ALTHOUGH if you ascribe to the "Marlena is from Earth" ideas, then very yes, in as much as if there is that close of a connection to Earth already, then why cant that Earth be the Earth of the DC heroes?

    As much as I love the Christmas special, and I love that with the fury of 1000 Suns, AND it and Marlena help me legitimize the live action movie in my mind, In the "Greater cannon" type of sense, no, I dont want Earth, or Particularly DC involved.


    Although I'll be the first to say it. If I am the first. If this was the only way to get new media, I'd buy it. Sigh...
