    I dont like the colour scheme at all. With the right deco it has potential but right now Im pretty "Bleh" about this figure...
    Also, in my humble opinion, the character doesn't "look" very "MotU-ish" to me.

    From Facebook:
    "TG says if we can get 5000 people behind Illumina, they´ll make her."
    With all due respect to Mr. Neitlich and the fans who like The Mighty Spector, I doubt that figure would come even close to the 5,000 supporters Illumina is said to need.

    Good. Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you.

    The hate is swelling in you now. Find a weapon. Use it. Strike the Spector figure in the display down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more the Dark Side's servant.

    But...someone remind me, what was that quote exactly? ...We couldn't get Illumina made because 250ish supporters from this website wasn't enough?

    TG, I bet you can't find 100 people asking for Spector. I dare you to show them to me if you can.

    The fact is your Spector figure will sell. He'll sell to people who have subs, to people who are completists and to people who just plain like him for one reason or another.

    And so would a Gar woman named Illumina. Please don't ever tell us there isn't enough support to justify her again. Just say you don't want to make her, so you're not.

    So far, Mighty Spector has about 5 supporters. He's just missing the "thousand" part.

    Illumina would OWN this line if she gets made.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    That figure is terribly boring, unattractive and completely irrelevant to the line! WORST figure ever. I have zero interest in it and will never buy it.

    He is a purple Snake Eyes with a time travelling device. I like him more and more.

    that says ALOT about design...
    I actually think the design might have worked better on the DC Universe Classics body. He looks like he'd fit right in with those superhero characters. I might have liked him more if he was a DCUC figure.

    There just isn't the same imagination put into his design that most of the MOTU characters have. Compared with Draego-Man, or even Fearless Photog, I find him uninspired and boring to look at.

    The only aspect I did like was the Cosmic Key wrist device, but the concept art indicates that it's actually some sort of laser whip/blade weapon, and not used for time travel at all.

    My point is this:

    1. This is a really dumb figure, even by dumb figure standards. (This coming from a guy that actually liked Wun-dar and Clawful.)

    2. Putting this figure into production was a really dumb idea.

    3. Dumb ideas like this are going to end up (at best) costing Matty subscriptions, and at worst killing the entire line.
    1. Really? Because an elephant helmet firefighter, a neck extending guy, a guy with a tire on his stomach? What is so dumb about Spector?

    2. Really? I like it and I'm buying a few 30th Anniversary subs, and even if I wasn't I'd buy this figure

    3. So the line is now ending because a brand new character in an alternate sub is being produced??? Makes sense. Whatever.

    This, he is a far better release than those 3. Who by the way have a HUGE history.

    to be honest i am SURPRISED to see as much love for this character and how many people are really liking it and supporting it....

    i really do not understand it though... i am really, REALLY unimpressed by the character....however i am happy for all those who like him...not to sound like a jerk but i just do not see him being very popular...

    ----------------------
    i think the greatest problem here is that I thought this 30th anniv. line was going to be something really special with chaxters being created by yhose that have been doing toy design for years...
    People don't like new or different for whatever reason.... So it takes something really special to be accepted.. Draego Man fits that for many, but to think any of these new characters won't be scrutinized on all levels and especially Toyguru's. People want special and mindblowing for the 30th, unfortunately fans are setting themselves up for disappointment.

    Now as for my take on Spector, I love and I mean love masked/helmeted characters (Deadpool, Deathstroke, Deadshot, Boba Fett, Stormtroopers, Snake Eyes, Black Manta, Dr Doom, Baron Zemo, etc.) they have always been very visually appealling to me for some reason? So I like the look, he is very Deadpool esque which I don't mind. The more I see of him the more I like the figure. Cool gun, great arm cosmic key accessory, and that art makes him that much cooler hope we get those green electric/fire accessories.

    That's what I was thinking. He reminds me more of an NA character.

    Maybe if they were to get rid of the spade on his armor, the diamond eyes and give him some kind of helmet he would fit in a little more.

    Regardless, I still love MotUC.

    If this figure would have a killer design, there wouldn`t be that negative response...

    If it would be a second Draego Man, it would be great...

    But it isn`t...

    It's a big no for me, as it has no connection to me from my childhood along with draego man. And whilst photog isn't the best of figures either, the Nathan bitner 80's connection means it feels like it should have been

    Unfortunately, Mighty Spector does absolutely nothing for me. Like others have said, it's very bland and unimaginative, and it doesn't fit in with the line in the slightest. Granted, Fearless Photog doesn't really fit in either, but I'm looking forward to it due to the interesting design. I guess it's just the chance you take when you buy a sub without first seeing everything you will be getting.

    This figure totally looks and sounds like a DC character, I couldn't believe he is in the MOTUC line! Even his concept (from his design to his background) just doesn't blend well in the this universe! Honestly, what were they thinking?

    Two weeks ago I was debating if I should buy another add on 30th anniversary subscription hoping for more Draego-Man like characters, but after seeing this offer, I surely will not waist more money on it.

    On the other hand, I loved the other reveals, and now I'm debating if I should buy another 2012 subscription or not for the second heads... Hmmm decisions decisions decisions...

    Good call joseephus, the figure is definitely a cut-and-paste job. But I hate to admit that I'm warming up to the fact we're getting this guy. I like the color scheme, hopefully the production version of the purple is distinct from all the other purple colors in the line.

    Seems like the Cosmic Key gauntlet was added as an afterthought, if not the whole time-travelling power because he doesn't even look like he would inconspicuously fit in any time period. Gwildor and Preternia He-Man would just look like transients in a modern time frame.

    Now there is zero I mean Z-E-R-O reason not to make Plundor, Illumina, Gwildor, or any other "unsupported/unknown" character by ToyGuru's and Matty's own arguments.
