    Well, maybe The Mighty Spector can be MOTU's version of Kenny where he comes in to save the day at the end and meets a horrible fate in doing so. But since he is the Master of Time Travel, he comes back in the next episode as a future self to do it all over again.

    Scott's got a Spector in his pants and he ain't afraid to show it, show it, show it ...

    Yes I think "Mighty Spector" is a tribute for the "Mighty Crusaders" (one of the many motu knock-off line in the 80's). Look at the armour here It's basically the same:


    My question is, if MIghty Spector is a tribute for the teh "Mighty Crusaders", is Draego Man a tribute for the "Warrior Beast"? And Sir Lazer Lot a tribute for the "Galaxy Warriors"? Now this is so cool!

    i don't know.. Metalogan's is similiar... in a generic kind of way... but your picture is a bit of a stretch.

    I think he-man's armor is more similiar to that guy's than Spector's is...

    in any case, there has been nothing to indicate TMS is a tribute to Mighty Crusaders.

    FYI The Mighty Crusaders were Archie Comics' version of DC's JLA or Marvel's Avengers. If anything, I'd say Remco's line was in response to Kenner's Super Powers or Mattel's Secret Wars.

    Is misremembering like mid-speaking, misquoting, and other words politicians use for "told a lie" or BS? (Teasing!)

    I love the Scooby ghost eyes, actually-I always loved those in the opening credits of the earliest stuff-before Scrappy came along...
    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

    What I can't believe is how the current brand manager is introducing his own original character into the line, which is SOOO disparate from TMS. And obviously a childhood creation - how hard is it to draw a naked dude with a chest harness and furry underwear? And the name! He-Man?! It's like a bad joke! I'm just glad TMS clearly transcends the fans and the flawed ideas of self proclaimed "Toy Gurus" everywhere.

    I don't have too much to say about Spector... I can get over the masked spandex part... it is Eternia, they have a space Cowboy and Rock people... spandex, isn't too outlandish...

    I just can't get over the spade... it just stands out too much for my taste. Why, oh why, Scott did you use an existing symbol on him? Why not use He-man's iron cross, or a totally new symbol? Personally, I would have used the Cosmic Warrior symbol like Zodak/Zodac and had him part of that faction... I mean who better to time travel, than a "cosmic worrior"...



    Also... for some reason, when ever I see or hear about Spector... I for some reason alsways hear Gwildor asking him "Who's your daddy, Spector!?!"

    Bow has a heart emblem and Spades, Diamonds and Club-tipped arrows in his MOTUC quiver. He-Man has an Iron Cross on his chest while Skeletor sports cross-bones, Hordak a red bat while Sy-Klone has a Saturn-like planet on his belt buckle. It does have precedents - symbols that mean something on Earth that may mean nothing, have a different meaning on Eternia.

    Ok, I wish Scott would refrain from using Back To The Future to explain time travel! There is no time vortex! It's a threshold! When the DeLorean jumps from one point to another, The trip is instantaneous! It's explained in the films! Does that mean when Spector jumps he'll be covered in a layer of ice too? And since he is using the Cosmic Key, the suit is useless! The characters in the film didn't need a suit! Also the comic establishes that He-Man doesn't need a suit! Skeletor doesn't need one! Poorly developed concept and back story for this bad character! At least when I make a character who is to be based inside a already established universe. I do look at all the variations of that universe to see what will can work and what can't in the bio for my character.

    It's quite possible Spector is using a sorta 2.0 Cosmic Key because the original one no longer exists... so whatever they were able to cobble together to create this new wristband key might require the user to be encased in the vortex suit. "Back in the day", with Gwildor's key, you could just have you and all your friends jump into a portal and tada! You're all transported! But in King He-Man's time- and perhaps because of the result of what conflicts arose when the original Cosmic Key existed- I mean seriously- both Skeletor and Evil-Lyn ended up using it for their own evil purposes!- they were only able to construct something that allowed one user at a time to travel via this method.

    That's me, defending The Mighty Spector's abilities... LOL.

    The Time Vortex is quite prevalent in Dr. Who, and I think a couple of other franchises too. Soooo it's not an unheard of concept, and the idea of needing something surrounding you to protect you is fairly common.

    ANyone remember the quote about WHY Doc Brown chose a 'delorian'? I seem to remember something about the stainless steel frame being important for the construction.... but All I can remember is the add on 'and if your gonna make a time machine out of a car... do it with STYLE!"

    I like the idea of the 'vortex suit' and had pretty much come to the same conclusion ever since I noted it had no eye holes..

    It's cool to see the toy Scott used to call Captain Spector. Had NO idea what he was talking about when listening/reading about it before. It's also neat to actually see which Hotwheels care he named Spector. I thought it was the purple and yellow set:



    There's also this one (with hologram card):



    I also, REALLY, want to see a movie poster or comic book cover that shows some action/suspense going on with the title "The Mighty Spector: Outta Ammo, Outta Time!" It totally sounds like a 90's action film!
