Spector feel like a creation of someone who wasn't that good at drawing or coming up with details. Again personally I'm not a fan of these full body suit characters, I don't mind a mask that covers an entire face but give me detailing to make it look interesting.
    His feature is he's the Master of Time Travel. And if Spector came in the line originally he'd have the waist punch, just like half the figures. You don't like him that's fine. But people complaining because he doesn't fit into the line? Seriously there are barbarians, monsters, robots, humans, aliens, magic users, etc. So a guy in a full body suit doesn't?

I don't knock the figure, it's OK to me, not one that screams "BUY ME NOW!" and I won't, because I,me, myself....I don't like, and I am entitled just as anyone else who doesn't like it is entitled not to. Just because someone turns blue in the face defending something won't make someone who really doesn't like that something to change their mind.

    And to your....
    #1)...those characters have been part of the lines since the 80's we all know them, like them or not, they are there, they are not new figure / character that not only looks out of place, but actually looks and feels to belong in another line entirely, that already exists, and has existed for many years...your answer is opinion, not mine, not anyone else, just because someone likes something someone else doesn't, why does there have to be a death match over the crap?, it's stupid, like it, you like it, you don't, you don't.... get over it, people need to quit knocking others for their opinions, it's childish.

    Granted a lot of people need to tone down their emotions behind their opinions in the first place, they are your opinions, not necessarily someone else's, a lot of us are in our 30's right?, come on take some Ritalin, lay off the 5 Hour Energy, and chill.

    #2) Not everyone wants a sub..30th or not, people need to get over that too, buying a sub doesn't make anyone better than someone who doesn't, it doesn't give anyone the right to poke at or down someone who don't buy one. People are entitled to spend their money however they like, not the way someone else thinks they should....unless you're married to that other someone.....that is.

    #3) OK one figure every once in a while will not kill the line, if more and more figures produced are unliked over and over again, then that is another story entirely.

    No one can have an opinion around here that contradicts someone else's, that is pretty sad, they are only toys, and we are mostly all adults here, I mean come on.
    Don't have a problem with people having a different opinions or even disliking any characters, it's all personal opinion. But people attacking the Brand manager because he put his character design in the "extra" 30th anniversary collection has been over the top. And this figure is taking extra heat just because it was based on his design, mad because character X hasn't gotten a figure yet. And those points of mine I was just answering another posters.

    I think even some simple changes, like getting rid of the spade, would make a huge difference. Why not put the power ring skull in its place?

    i don't think anyone you've quoted (or anyone in this thread) has attacked TG (in this thread) so i don't understand the need to defend him (in this thread). i think most of us are discussing the figure, not the creator.

    if you knew anything about me, you'd know i don't hold any ill will towards TG. i've defended him in the past. in fact, before he made the mighty spector, i thought he deserved to make a 30th fig...but now that i've seen it...well...i'm changing my mind on that.

    my opinion on the mighty spector figure is based on the mighty spector figure. i could care less who created him.
    Sure the character looks like others from other properties mainly Marvel and DC, but Spector isn't an exact copy and there isn't a character/figure design like that in Masters. What makes any of the other diffferent is their stories and personality designs. This character being Heroic and a time traveller makes him different.

    And as I've said I like masked characters and with all the disdain for him it's making me like it even more. If people don't like it and it's because of the design it won't be the 1st character/figure people don't like.

    i don't have a problem with the backstory and for me that's irrelevant as it could be applied to any new figure. so far, i gather you like that it's masked and it's backstory.

    i'm focusing on the plastic. it looks like a basic buck with a superhero's head. total pass.

    The 1st poster said putting the figure in the line would cause the line to end, clearly a shot at Toyguru. And my posts aren't just replying to the quotes only, some people are taking shots at this figure because it was produced by Toyguru (maybe not in this thread). And I am discussing the figure.

    This was probably a economical figure to produce. Seems many will be passing on it, the more I see it the more I like it.

    huh? doorman was the first poster and he pretty much said don't discuss TG. the 2nd and 3rd posters in this thread indicated they liked the figure (or at least aspects of it).

    a figure that many pass on doesn't seem very economical to me. /shrug i guess it depends on how many 30th subs they've sold.

    Awesome overreaction, lack of reading and refusal to comprehend. Are you a partisan talking head in your real job?

    Economical in that it uses a lot of parts reuse. And I really have no idea on how many will be bought, just quite a few org members seem to be passing on him.

    One of my favorite aspects of MOTU is the imaginative characters - especially those borderline ridiculous. Take Stinkor, who was also revealed yesterday. The guy is a giant skunk. Yet it’s that absurdity that makes Stinkor so interesting that he’s being discussed close to thirty years later.

    Spector’s a wasted opportunity. Mattel had the chance to add something special to a line that apparently means a lot to people, but instead they designed a character who is generic and dull. I understand those posts complaining Spector doesn’t fit in MOTU. A super hero type character may have been more accepted if he weren’t boring and bland.

    I think he looks great and fits quite well in with MOTU. All the other characters take from something that came before.

    yep, because unlike all the aforementioned characters, this one lacks what all the others had, an imaginative design. the full body suit broken up by little things is very dull, no other MOTU toy character looks this dull. Every kind of character fits into MOTU but there IS a design aesthetic and Spector lacks it. if you like him that's great but those of us that (whether they like him or not) feel he doesn't fit in, it's based on how his design is done rather than what he is.

    Oh WOW! That's dead on!

    He's an interesting design. It'll be interesting to see how he fits into the story line.

    Mighty spector ....not so mighty

    Man am i glad i did not sign up for the 30th anniversary figures. Mighty spector...what is this? Marvel. No, this is motuc. This character will be the jar-jar binks of motuc....man, who approves these kinds of ideas? I would've gone more fantasy/medieval.

    I was going to play devil's advocate and say that the parts are so generic there that it's too tough to say whether this was his inspiration or not, but then I realized how much that underlines the fact that he's such a bland figure

    I really like the cosmic key wrist band, it is very "time agent" (shout out to my fellow Who fans!).
    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.

    Awesome.

    Bland design. Amalgamation of too many existing characters. Nothing "motu" about this thing.

    Mattel has further cemented my satisfaction in forgoing the 2012 subscription.

    They better under-produce the heck out of this...thing. Otherwise, it'll be in the store forever.
    dude...right on! Not only an amalgamation of two many motuc characters, but other as well. Think doctor mahanttan from watchmen. This thing is a weak rip-off. Also, what is with the spade in the center. An earth reference. This gye a timetravelling casino hoping texas holdem card shark? I'm a bit worried about the comic book now. Tg has struck out in the create a character department. Will he repeat this failure in the comic book too?

    So are we suggesting that, beyond being the most unoriginal inclusion in MOTU ever, the figure was actually a rip off materials previously presented by Mattel?

    Yeah, I could see it.

    You underestimate me, I am not the pupil but the teacher. I don't know why people are trying to fix unmighty spector with different colors or armors? Guys the figure is unfixable. Putting lipstick on a pig is not going to work.

    The only part I like on this figure is the (concept of the) green fire whip. The utility belt is hideous and the holster looks more like an oversized breadbox. The playing card symbols are beyond lame and the overall impression this figure makes is that of an uninspired and incredibly dull combination of existing (yet individually cool) parts.

    On the bright side, now that the worst MOTU character in history has been revealed, things can only get better (unless he somehow wormed his way into the new mini-comics as well).

    I'm actually beginning to feel sorry for ToyGuru, the guy was given one of the most amazing privileges a fan of this line can get and he totally blew it.

    The bio and weapons (not tooled yet) might actually sell him for me. Not a huge fan of the figure shown but his weapons might change my mind. They looked pretty cool on the sheet behind him in the cabinet.
