    Interesting to see the discussion is still going on with this character, but, after sifting through it, I still can't see a real possibility of having this character as a figure. mind you, I've been a staunch proponent of introducing thing never before made into the line, and i like what they have done in that regard. To me, few things scream MOTU more than a big yellow and green monkey with battle armor . Unmade guys like He-Ro and Vikor have a place in MOTU history, as does Wundar. And I have no problem with including some of the things that appeared only in the minis, like the Goddess. I hope we get more such things, as they give the line something fresh and new to look forward to. But, in this case, we have a character notable for basically being at a picnic with three established characters, who apparently did little memorable int hat appearance. If he was made, I'd basically only be using him as "third villager from the left He-Man needs to save from big yellow and green monkey with battle armor."

    If Mattel were to make some generic viallagers and include him, I'd likely go with that; I've always hated that action figure lines give you no innocent bystanders for the villains to imperil and the heroes to save (at least in the old Mego days, you had Action Jackson, Dinah Mite, Happy Days, Waltons and other "normal folks" to fill that roll). But that's about the only way I could really look at him as being worthy of an actual figure.

    I still think that "Josh" should be the name given to another character as his real name. An easy way to go about this would be to create an Etherian Guard two pack. Have him be the Captain of the Guard on Etheria. Put a bonus (recolored) Prince Adam jacket in as an extra, and you can dress Josh up in his civilain attire.

    My second choice would be to have him be Snout Spout. Yes, some of you guys hate this, but packing a human head for Snout Spout and calling him Josh could work. Sure he could become the tragic "Beauty and the Beast" type character.... but on the other hand, maybe the metal elephant head is just a fire fighting tool that he wears on duty, and he is still handsome Josh under the mask (fire fighters always get the ladies, you know!) There is no reason Snout Spout has to be a "freak" just because he wears a helmet - it may just be a device he puts on when on duty. Plus, with the human head, it gives you a cool firefighter figure to display.

    Looking at the POP mini-comic, Josh comes off as a bit of a layabout. If anything, give the character some purpose. Etheria is a planet ruled by an evil tyrant. I don't want a figure of some privilaged looking guy who enjoys picnics and potato salad, while the rest of the Etherians are fighting for freedom. In other words, give him a job and a purpose!

    Well I LOVE both of your ideas however...while I agree snout spout should DEFINITELY come with an extra human head (such a good idea!!) I don't want it to be josh!

    I like your idea of having a etherian gaurd two pack and having one of them be named Josh and then having an adam vest inside... to me that is the PERFECT scenerio! I think you should ask if something like that is possible in a QandA in fact!

    That's why some have suggested a Scarlet Pimpernel/Zorro/Batman approach to Josh.
    Yeah! That's right I called Josh the Etherian Batman... Lose the vest, add an alternate head and armor + The Generic WP sword and Presto! The secret ID! Before anyone groans and mentions: "you're making a brand new character!" The answer is kinda, but the design will be based on Vintage stuff... Josh's extra armor could be based on some of the unused designs that can be seen here:
    MOTU concepts from Tomart Action Figure Digest

    It's a Win-Win: Josh fans get Josh and those who would like one of the "generic" knight type figures can get one as well.
    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.

    Surely an Etherian Guard two-pack should be two females on matrilineal Etheria...

    A most elegant solution; everyone gets something they would like. I'd definitely get a set like that.

    I like the idea of Josh being the hansom Etherian peasant who gets experimented on and becomes Snout Spout. It would make a good back story for him to be a confident, hansom heroic member of the rebels who ends up as this silly looking freak and has to deal with the effects of that and living with it as well as feelings or wanting vengance on Hordak and feeling ugly and low self esteem.

    I'd be totally on board with this. They could even do a redeco of Bow's harp for him and possibly a new weapon that could be replicated for a Weapons Pack down the road.

    Lots of terrific ideas here!

    My point about JOSH is... he's a blank slate. He's another heroic character in the Rebellion that is a dude. There's potential to make more of him than his one appearance lets on. He is not required by any rules to be sculpted just as he appeared in that mini-comic. Look at Bow!

    I want to answer some of the criticism regarding Josh, but don't have time at the moment.

    Quote Originally Posted by MegaGearMax View Post

    I realize that Josh looks like a mundane villager, but any writer can make Josh into something. Hell, I bet the 4H and Mattel can turn Josh into a full fledged character, since there's no backstory to challenge.
    This is an EXCELLENT point. MGM reflected my opinion but put it in a way I haven't said before....

    Thanks to the She-Ra cartoon, Bow won't be the only male member of the Great Rebellion if they don't make Josh. Snout Spout was also a member of the Great Rebellion on the show. I don't Josh to be Snout Spout. I don't want him to be co-opted by a MOTU character. POP deserves its own characters.

    I'm down with this Josh guy. It would be nice to have another human male in the Rebellion display.

    And yes...bring on Seahawk!

    Oh, if they make her, I could easily see her sharing parts with Teela. It looks like they both shop at Eternia's Secret.

    For me this scene makes her more interesting than Josh. Josh is at a picnic, this chick is for some reason happily lounging at King Hiss' feet, if josh did something that sparked my imagination about him more I think i'd be more interested in him. like the aforementioned Etherian Guard thing. if he were in angella's court, or he was one of the villagers who stood up to the horde in the secret of the sword. yeah we can pretend he was, but we are discussinng him from a mini comic appearance. ferankly I'd rather get one of the villagers that got their energy drained in SOTS to Josh because they did something of note or at least were involved in a scene cooler than a picnic

    COME ON. Be honest here, you are interested in the slave girl just because she is sexy, Josh is a guy spending time with his friends and is not sexy, thatīs the the difference.

    He is more passionated than her, he helps his friends looking for a missing friend. In real life thatīs quite heroic.
    If you ask me.
