    With all the hate this figure is getting, has it been mentioned that he'll be an excellent base figure for customizers?

    Well, since this character is an "evolution" of Lt Spector, anyone who doesn't like the head can simply put a Palace Guard head on him. You could either paint the helmet, or leave it as is (I would paint it dark to look like Magneto's helmet in X-Men: First Class).



    Also, instead of the "spade" on the armor, another option for a cool emblem would be the Grayskull warrior crest!

    I really like the idea of the Grayskull symbol instead of the spade...I would definitely sign on for this change! Makes it fit in much better IMO.

    GUYS, GUYS, GUYS there is no way to improve on this figure. It is hopeless. Lipstick on a pig hopeless. Before the unmighty spector even became a figure he was doomed because the idea and design were bad.

    For those suggesting glowing or green eyes on Spector, I don't think it'd help. Instead of looking like Deadpool it makes him look like Spawn...

    And "cool-looking outfit" does not a time-traveller make.
    Sci-Fi's best known time traveller Dr Who just wears a suit (except the 9th dr). Looking at him you wouldn't instantly go "yeah he travels through time".

    What makes a Hordak?? (w)Hores??

    In saying that they could replace the spade with hands on a clock.

    I really like his bio, or what little information we have on this guy so far. I also like how the equipment on the figure all ties into the character, Scott and the 4H sure put a lot of thought into the design and sculpt of the figure. However, I am not a fan of the "cosmic" characters and the NA character line. If you ask me, Mighty Spector really looks like he belongs in the DC line of Characters, not the MOTU characters, just my $0.02.

    The Doctor is not a Masters character.

    Skeletor looked like a skeleton. Beast-Man was a beast. Rio Blast Blasted things. Mechaneck...well, you know. Sure, it's not applicable all the time, but it definitely is a lion's share of the time.

    Oh, and Hordak was a member of the Horde. That's an easy one.

    I expected Mattel to do the same with its two characters. I was disappointed and actually surprised when I realized that didn't happen with their first character. I know Toy Guru also has a great deal of love and respect for MOTU. I don't disagree with Toy Guru creating a figure. I just disagree with the choice of Spector. It was time for Mattel to bring their A game. It wasn't the time to indulge a childhood fantasy. Mattel and Toy Guru should have put forth more effort and added a truly meaningful character that would have blown away the fans.

    MOTU is what is today due to the contributions of so many people. I know if Val and Emiliano had been given a slot they wouldn't have disappointed us. It would have been an intelligent public relations move on Mattel's part too. As it stands, Mattel is really blowing the opportunities presented by the 30th anniversary figures.
    My friend, you said that brilliantly!!!

    After watching PD's powercon video, I got to admit that my anger has quelled after seeing how much enthusiasm he had for his own figure. Shame it wasn't better!

    Wait, Doesn't Marvel Own "Mighty Spector" now?

    Unless Scott copyrighted Mighty Spector before he submitted it to Marvel Comics, Scott is no longer the rights holder to Mighty Spector, Marvel Comics is.

    The whole thing with Photog and Jason Bitner isn't the same situation, where entries were asked for and Mattel would get the rights to use the idea, but the individual would retain the rights.

    During Marvels open submissions, all submitted work becomes the property of Marvel. This is to prevent someone from claiming that Marvel used their idea if something similar happens in their comics, even if the idea was rejected decades ago. It's also why they would urge people not to submit character ideas unless they're willing to lose control of said character without having first copyrighted it.

    Scott mentioned in his interview with Dan that he has the rejection letter. In some post somewhere, he states that Marvel has the original art and he had to redraw the character from memory for the figure.

    If the character wasn't copyrighted when it was submitted to Marvel, Marvel owns "The Mighty Spector" in perpetuity. Making a figure of him without Marvels permission is illegal. Something tells me that 12 year old Scott or however old he was didn't copyright him before sending him to Marvel.
    Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!

    That's what I've been thinking. However, let's kick it up a notch.

    Could it be that Hasbro has the rights to this toy if Marvel has the rights to the figure concept?
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    You just made Spector even cooler in my eyes.
    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

    hahaha, a knife shotting cosmic key at that. Seriusly though, I'm sure it is fine. Nobody would ever open themselves up to a potential legal fiasco like that.

    But to the uninitiated he would still an enigma to the usual pattern as with the likes of ZodaC/K which is why characters are also given taglines to help explain who or what they maybe

    According to Scott's words, it sure doesn't sound like a different character. Regardless, I am guessing the matter would be of no consequence to Marvel. Whether or not anyone in Mattel's legal department would be concerned about it is a different matter.

    I'm not a huge fan of "Mighty Spector" but I seriously don't think this is an issue nor worth trying to get Scott or Mattel in trouble over.

    This is as silly as the group that is advocating against Illumina just out of spite.
