The piece is complete...whether we like it or not...it's complete and the "artist" feels confident in the work he put out.
(I'm not directing this towards Snake Hunter even though I quoted his post)
I always thank Spector. Especially for him going back in time and modifying my want lists so they put him at the top of all of them (even my grocery want lists)
I just don't understand this thread. I'm not trying to stop discussion or anything, I just don't understand how there is over 1000 posts (mostly nagging) on this character? I do suppose, however, this is a testament to how serious .orgers take their MotuC (me being one of them). It may have been said before but... anyone who would get a chance to make their own character and get said character into the line, would be crazy not to do it.
No matter how cool, lame, great, neat, fancy, or stupid (etc...) anyone's character would be... most people are gonna hate on it. That's not to say you can't dislike TMS, but he is here to stay. Take him or leave him.

Itīs not that the spade is that bad, but the heroic skull symbol is so much more awesome, i want that so bad now
Letīs make an interchangeable chest plate! Otherwise i have to create a sticker to stick over it! What a fiddling
There are a ton of posts in this thread that are generally negative toward The Mighty Spector, true.
But none of these are insults to ToyGuru.
If there are, please report those posts and we'll get rid of them.
The Mighty Spector is a figure in this line just like any other and is open for debate and criticism.
We didn't delete all the posts about how bad Clawful, Leech, Snake Man-At-Arms, etc... are either.
Like I said, not trying to single you out, but I keep hearing that we are permitting people to rip Spector/ToyGuru apart and I don't agree.
If you can show me the posts you are referring to, I'd be happy to moderate them.

Suffice to say, it definitely can use an improvement and many have made
contribution that have vastly improved the character to streamline it in with
the rest of the characters. The "artist" may feel that the work he made
as a child is "good enough", but not everyone will agree.
As Scott has previously stated, Mattel has a world class research facility and they do tons of research. Mattel supposedly spends ungodly amounts of time and money to determine what their customers want. Unfortunately, that's not why the Spector design is being produced.
Scott should have attempted to create a character for the line that would have mass appeal to fans instead of choosing to produce his boyhood dream character. To further exacerbate the problem Scott has insisted that their will be no changes to the character despite overwhelming criticism. It reflects poorly on a manager to put personal wants above the success of a product line.
I question whether people criticizing Scott's "design" realize that he had to recreate from memory and DICTATE that to the DESIGNER- technically you should be directing part of the criticism to the concept artist who actually put the piece together in the first place.
world class, world class, world class research!!!!! It's like when you tell that little snot nosed kid that you got something cool but he says he always has something better than you. When you know the little ******* is lying.

Sadly, I believe we're seeing a definite rift between Scott and the org. So Spector was something of a vanity project... I'd rather just let it go. Alot of these comments are really needlessly antagonizing and it helps to put some of Scott's comments in perspective.
But not entirely excusable.
TG, don't even think about turning your back on this community! Let's drop this back and forth already. We are fans and all that entails. Lots of cheers and sometimes, lots of boos. Even the hometeam gets an earful occasionally. Fact is, you need to hear the bad along with the good.
Maybe we got spoiled along the way and thought there was nothing that could rattle you. Maybe it's finally starting to. You really put yourself out there and I can't help but think the overall reaction to the figure might have gotten to you. It's gotten to me, not because I'm into the design, but because I have respect for you.
We have alot going on this year and it's kind of surreal to see this rift developing. The honeymoon might have been over alooooonnnnggg time ago, but a divorce of sorts could be just around the corner. That goes for all of us. Let's try to meet in the middle somewhere and refrain from getting too emotionally charged up. I know it's not gonna end well if the fans and the brand manager keep sniping at each other. Stop doing it!
Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.
