    Very glad Mara was victorious! She will be a fantastic addition to the NA heroes.

    I can't imagine them doing dress Mara. Especially as they used an image of the battle attire.

    Because most people seem to prefer characters over toy design.

    Mara won the vote several times here on the ORG and on NYCC, it's only fair that she gets a figure .... i guess

    I am happy that Mara won. Personally, i would have voted for Tuskador, but Mara was a very close seond. It would be great symmetry if Mara and Crita were both released in 2015.

    Though I also want the other two, I am sooo relieved (and excited!) that we'll be seeing Mara in 2015
    I imagine they'll do the prototype design, as it's something Mattel planned on releasing back in the day anyways (and it keeps in theme with prototypes like He-Ro being released). Now we REALLY need Eldor and Darius!

    I'm not a NA fan, so I know very little about the characters. From what I do know Mara is far more important than the others, she is pretty much the Teela of NA. Also for the most part I don't think they fit in with the rest of my MOTUC collection. Mara will easily fit in with the rest of the Masters who desperately need more females. The only other NA character I really want is Crita. Being the Evil-Lyn on NA she is more important than any of the remaining space mutants, so I hope we see her in 2015 along with Mara.

    That's a little disappointing there were so few people at NYCC, but I'm surprised the vote was THAT close! That bodes well for Tuskador being released in the future, though. Remember Toyguru's idea of a GIANT SDCC pack in the future to finish off ALL the NA characters that don't get released (if the line ends by 2015)? I think that's a good idea, if they can't make it before the line ends. I'm sad Darius only got 3-5 votes. I blame the poll that showed it was a race between Mara and Tuskador though, and not an actual lack of interest in his character.

    She won every poll where she was put up against Tuskador and Darius. It's okay being disappointed in the result of a vote, but I don't see how you can call people trolls when she wins each poll.

    Mara: 82
    Tuskador: 76
    Darius: 39

    Darius is important in mainly European literature as the leader of the Galactic Guardians, but never made it to the cartoon. Master Sebrian plays his role...minus all the action heroic stuff...because he's an old man with a cane. Tuskador guest starred in a handful of episodes, and is kind of like Ram-Man of NA, I guess...but is an Elephant-like man, ala Snout Spout. Mara is, for all intents and purposes, NA's Teela. She helps Master Sebrian as his assistant (Teela helps Man-At-Arms in his workshop), she thinks He-Man and Adam are the same, she becomes Ambassador of the Galactimytes and leads them into battle (Teela, Captain of the Royal Guard), and she and Crita fight it out hand-to-hand in a handful of episodes. Crita vs Mara is the Evil-Lyn vs Teela of NA. I think her warrior garb and ponytail mace (like Whiplash's tail) are really cool. I LOVE her cartoon warrior look and I PRAY they chose that over the prototype "bikini" look. I don't like that. Also, if she can be done like Queen Marlena/Captain Glenn to get BOTH her looks, she will be one of the best figures in the line, in my opinion.

    She just needs:

    - two heads (ponytail mace on a BALL JOINT so it can whip people)
    - female buck 1.0 (same one Queen Marlena uses)
    - 2 outfits: warrior tunic (same kind of style as Captain Glenn's tunic) and her robed dress
    - shield her prototype came with
    - new boots
    - new bracelets

    They could also give her and episode specific artifact, a blaster or something from Filmation.

    I know itīs silly but all this Mara talk makes me really happy. She is very far away from now on and not even guaranteed since we donīt know if the 2015 sub is really going to happen but still. She is on her way

    Iīm totally for her bikini look and i want her to have a waist cut. I picture her in my head posed twisted at her waist throwing her braided her with the mace but that wonīt be possible if they use the old female bug.

    Queen Marlena had been a SDCC exclusive so i guess Mara wonīt get that treatment and she doesīt have to if you ask me. First up i want her represented as a fighting character who can kick behinds and make use of her hair and mace and once she has gotten her MOTUC figure one day they could make a variant of her.

    The asymmetric shoulder design for her outfit would look good as leotard or bikini so i hope the FOUR HORSEMEN included that no matter what route they go with her the rest is very similar so her torso is the big surprise we will have to wait and see for!

    You know, they could do the swappable Marlena type thing with her. That way, she might actually have a chance for a less droopy crotch covering.

I am glad that certain characters will be made but knowing that the one that lost will be in limbo status is the worst.

    It's a little sad that only 55 or so people decided the fate of this.

    They wanted to give the NYCC attendees a bonus i never liked that idea but their vote gave the same answer as the other votes, so in the end it doesīt matter how many voted since the outcome is the same.

    And maybe iīm crossing a line here but i think itīs very rude to come into Maras thread and tell those who like her you didīt wanted her to win and that she is bland or boring or what ever.
    You donīt see me at the Darius thread telling everyone how glad i am she won and he didīt made it.

    Ouch, that stings a lot . If only my partner and I had been there, we could have won it for Tuskador! I had even considered going to NYCC just to take part in the vote, and now I see that I should have carried through with that crazy plan .

    I know that Mara will turn out to be cool figure, but I will probably resent her a little bit if my choice never gets made as a result of her winning by one vote. Now I know how Illumina fans must feel towards Geldor. I voted for Illumina but the choice wasn't as important to me as this one. Congrats to Mara fans.

    Even though she wasn't my first choice, I prefer the result of this vote than the results that are giving us Huntara. Can't believe so few people were part of the vote.

    Wow. What a brilliant idea to let approximately 54-56 fans (who may or may not be subscribers) determine which character is produced. Although, I am glad Mara won.

    I'm happy to see Mara win, she a character I've been hoping for and was worried she wasn't going to be made this late in the line.

    Luckily for the Four Horsemen she's a character that can get away with their pancake booty

    After the huge turn out I had been seeing for Tuskador when he was announced as the third choice, I'm surprised to see that Mara won, but I'm happy. From what I understand, she was in every, or at least almost every, episode. That makes her way important to me than the others. Not to say the others don't deserve figures, of course. Darkspecter called her New Adventures' Teela. To me that takes precedence over most things in a series. It is a shame they have to do it this way though. If that was really the number of votes, it really doesn't mean anything. I always hate when I feel like I'm taking sides to the detriment of someone else in this line (especially since in the end, I support any character as long as they already existed), but at least I wasn't there to vote. XP

    I just hope Mara looks good. From what I understand, she has, like, what? Three looks? Robe, combat, and prototype figure? I hope they pick something that looks good, or at least provide some options that allow you to choose.

    I think they could still do it. Packing Cringer in with Marlena made her more of an SDCC item. Doing bother versions of Mara in one package would be like how NA He-Man was done, kind of. 2 heads, 2 armour pieces and some accessories...except the warrior outfit and her robes would be her 1-piece armour.

    Unfortunately we will most likely see the prototype version of Mara instead of her Jetlag appearance. The whole "vote for your favorite figure" thing really stinks! ALL THREE of these characters should be made! Tuskador would look sooooooo good in MOTUC!!!!
