Didn't the whip get cut?
"Keep reading the bios." After finally reading Spector's bio, I can say that I'm content with it. Its simple, yet adds much info to the MOTUC cannon story arc as well with many loopholes though.
I still have an issue on his name though. Nothing says "I'm a special secret time agent guardsman" than using your own real last name with the title of "Mighty" given by yourself a la Joxer the Mighty from Xena Plus being flung into the future automatically qualifies him to be a worthy candidate for such sophisticated equipment? Its like giving a medieval knight the keys to your Wind Raider
Cosmic Key wrist gauntlet can be like Iron Man's Chest power core, small device with ample energy that serves multiple functions.
Other than that, I have grown to accept Spector as I'll be getting 2, one to ''fix'' and one to be magically merged with Hordak's father to become Horde Prime (UK)! COOL!
So it's not like he was a strange guy in the middle of highly advanced society or anything... HONESTLY it's not much different than finding Fisto missing for years after the Great War and inviting into the Masters...
SO, Lt. Spector is thrown into a time portal as Skeletor becomes King and he arrives in the future where He-Man is King?
DID I MISS SOMETHING???
It sounds like things worked themselves out on Eternia before Lt. Spector became the "Mighty" Spector. I guess the Cosmic Enforcers were capable of doing their job WITHOUT Spector.
MYP Sorceress is a MUST HAVE figure for MOTUC!
Ha I noticed that as well. Things do work themselves out since He-Man is king in the future.
I suppose so, but none of Iron Man's equipment is as complex as a time machine. I always thought the technology of MOTU was designed with a single function in mind. Grizzlor's crossbow doesn't double as a hairdryer, for example.Cosmic Key wrist gauntlet can be like Iron Man's Chest power core, small device with ample energy that serves multiple functions.
Yeah, I have to admit i'll be getting a second Spector too, for custom purposes .Other than that, I have grown to accept Spector as I'll be getting 2, one to ''fix'' and one to be magically merged with Hordak's father to become Horde Prime (UK)! COOL!
Well, with the release of Spector's bio, it looks like all the hemming and hawing about Spector being the key character in the mythos has been proven baseless. Let's see how many Spector critics acknowledge that...
Does anyone know how to make stickers from online images or have a better picture of the Grayskull Warrior's ring symbol? I am hoping to place something like this over the silly spade:
Apologize if anybody else already report this:

Time traveling heroes with no restrictions on their actions are a deus ex machina I've never cared for (never cared much for time travel stories, period, to be honest), so I'm predisposed to dislike Spector on that count. The paradoxes just start piling up too much, and tend to give lazy writers a crutch, so I'm not thrilled with Spector's bio as someone who can interfere with events past and future.
As for Slushy, glad to see them giving a nod to the his release outside the states with his real name. The figure looks really good, too, which is the important part to me. We do still need the big two from the NA era, though (wow, imagine me actually asking Mattel to make He-Man and Skeletor variants!).
"I will use this power for all the good that can be done, to work for peace, to encourage virtue, and above all, to preserve life in all its forms..." Superman
The Spector bio touches on some key future events nicely, although the choice of wording could've been a bit better. A few of you have pointed out that things seemed to have worked themselves out from the time he is transported (during King Skeletor's reign) to when he receives the Vortex suit (during King He-Man's reign). Well, from my personal assumptions, it's totally possible that by the time King He-Man is ruling Eternia there could very well be a villain that can time travel also and plans to sway the future in their or their leader's favor. Things may have worked out with He-Man as king but who's to say Spector has to stop someone from killing Marlena before the twins were born? I know the design of Spector has swayed folks to not like him and not put much worth into how he's being inserted into the MOTU mythos but I'm honestly interested to find out about some of his adventures stopping various events from changing.
"Spector uses his Vortex Suit to turn the tide in battle"
"Lt. Spector was cut off from the rest of the Masters of the Universe"
It sounds like "HE" is a key character. He not only does the job He-Man used to do(turning the tide), but he also changes time which is above and beyond anything the Cosmic Enforcers do. And although "HE" was only a Lieutenant in the Royal Guard, he was considered one of the Masters since "he was cut off from the rest of them". With those minuscule details in mind, the "hemming and hawing" seems to be justified.
MYP Sorceress is a MUST HAVE figure for MOTUC!
Sounds to me like The Mighty Spector is NOW the most powerful man in the universe. Master of traveling back in time so he can change the tide... more like change the timeline, thus allowing a new continuity within the existing story arcs in MOTU. Absolutly brilliant TG... not only do you have your own action figure(s)... but now you can use their abilities to mold MOTU into anything you want it to be. MYP's new cartoon was bad enough, now MOTU has to be reinvented, yet again.
-KING He-Man CHOSE Spector as the "Royal Family's Time Agent"... This Ultimate Power was bestowed upon this "former Redshirt" that seemingly deserted his post for whatever time passed between his first time travel. Why?
Also what IS his job exactly as a "Time Agent"? We know that he fights for the Royal Family throughout Eternia's History... What does "Fighting for the Royal Family" mean?
That's without mentioning the points brought forth by MasterCollector.
In my fan Continuity he'll be more like Marty McFly...
FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Crita is coming... Now I NEED SONGSTER! The Awesometastic Bard!
TG wrote a bunch of gobbledygook to make his tribute-to-self character seem awesome, but all he's really done is shoot himself in the foot as far as the Bios making any sense whatsoever... keep reading though... TG will promise to dig himself out of this hole, but all that will really happen is it will get deeper and deeper and then the line will end. Problem solved.
In all fairness to Scott and without ruining the mini-comic #3, the issue of why in relation to Spector having said role gets fleshed out a tad more.
And you can also blame him for all the spandex and body suits on Eternia....something he brought back with him, and everyone went nuts
Recent.... HATMOTU Skeletor
Wanted.... Filmation Mer-Man, Teela & Sorceress
Needed.... MOTUC Lord Masque
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
With any hope The Mighty Spector will go back in time and make Teela, Scare Glow, Tri-Klops and other rarer/popular early figures from this line easier to get a hold of. THAT would be a good use of Spector's power. Either that or erase himself from the timeline. I'll take either.
Happily invading Castle Grayskull with hippos is my true hobby.
