    Yeah, Spector would have been the one I used to go on TONS of adventures, if I had 'em when I was a kid. He's the absolute perfect canvas for whatever the heck you want him to be; he's just a generic hero with a gun and an energy knife - go to town! He could be anything! The more I play with 'em the more I like 'em.

(I'm not saying that as a slight it's the truth) I wouldn't have liked him though as a kid, at least not as a favourite. to be fair I immediately would have had a soft spot since he's purple and that's my favourite colour, but thinking about the characters I didn't buy or was hesitant to buy because to me they were 'boring' as a kid, I don't think I WOULD have bought ol' specky I wasn't into many superheroes by the time MOTU came out, save for Batman and the hulk, so again Specky and his superhero style PROBABLY wouldn't have appealed to me.

    BUT the REAL reason for toys, dare i say it is for KIDS to enjoy em, so whatever MY tastes may be, if a child is having good clean imaginative fun with a toy, God bless the toy and those that brought it to the child.

    Re: People saying that only Spector can use his key weapons.
    Why don't you see if the key can fit in any characters left hand? Because it can.

    Spector is proof that MOTUC means everything and nothing... and people will buy just about anything. He does have one thing in common with some of the greatest works of Disney: the hidden-in-plain-sight-sex reference.

    I hope he isn't planning on doing something similar for Castle Grayskull ...

    As I said - everyone is entitled to their opinions. A yin to your yang: my youngest son fell asleep cuddling Spector last night

    At the risk of engaging a debate that's probably best left undisturbed ... I have to say, I'm a little saddened by the negative emotion engendered by this guy. There are lots of figures that aren't my cup of tea - but I think it's that exact diversity that gives me many of the figures I love (like a giant toothed leech, a dude holding a loaf of bread, a flying monkey man, and a loveable glow-in-the-dark wave filler). For anyone that hasn't read the itsalltrue.com review of Spector - the cartoon panels are worth the visit.

    Spector - you my friend can have a place at the front of my shelf, spade and all!

    Oh, and EP, let me know if you don't need yours - I'd love to get a few spares for the kids!

    Dewd, I'm a cherry picker. Spector didn't even come close to being fruit for me. He's also not the only MOTUC I find aesthetically displeasing, either. But over all, his concept & design are really poor IMO.

    I got to ask EP, not meaning to be rude, but you have posted 76 times in this thread but you don't have anything invested in this figure??? i got to cry foul . Now i am all for freedom of speech and all but are comments like "Spector fills me with hate" adding much more to the conversation, or you just doing it for your own enjoyment . I have got to imagine to have a soft spot for this figure somewhere if ya keep coming back to rip on him. Its like Van Helsing for me, i watch it once a year and complain about how bad it is to all near me, but because of that i have a soft spot for that film in my history of cinema then other better made films.

    Which raise the point, with alot of the line being an homeage to vintage line, in years to come when we look back on this MOTUC will (for better or worst) SPector be one of the iconic figures we remember???

    Oh yes I did:



    SPECTOR fights the evil Leanne Hannah:



    And gets all the ladies:

    I love to hate him. I don't hate to love him.

    This is a really awesome costume. Too bad it is for such a crappy character

    You do some excellent cosplay, Vahn. You also do some wicked high-kicks!

    What isn't coming through in the pics is how irridescent and disco-fabulous the whole costume was. It was visually striking!!
