    Spector is cool.

    I LOVE the art though! They are really nifty, if a bit yucky, some.
    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

    Astro-Naughty

    Very cool design, lots of detailing could make for a very dynamic sculpt and paint job.
    i'd choose them all before Spector for those reasons though.

    For the record, I chose Plunjor.

    even though he's a bite off of Spiderman and captain america, I thought he came out kind cool. Stupid looking, but cool nevertheless.

    I'd still pick Spector due to his lack of tooling. If given the choice between someone like Mantenna or Two-bad being the 2012 figure with a fully new sculpt, or one of the fan choices getting it... yeah. Re-use all the way.

    You do realize that The 30th Anniversary figures didn't take away from the funding from the MOTUC line. It was added to it to create the anniversary line. So if Matenna or Two Bad were to be made. it wouldn't affect their out come.

    Spector did how ever take away what was to be created by someone on the Mattel Arts Dept. So unless Toyguru became an artist in that department. He did take away from a lucky artist there to make his figure. Personally, I feel that it even takes away the whole idea of Fearless Photog being made away. After all if this Spector was supposedly his entry into the contest all those ages ago. And he LOST! Having it made now? is a slap in the face to Bitner. Besides, I thought Mattel employees were not allowed to enter?

    Those designs are all fun, but can we redo this poll with serious characters that are free of toilet humor? You know, just like Spector.

    The three chosen, while incredibly well done, seem best reserved for The Tick.

    Anyway, for MOTUC, my vote of these 4 is, unfortunately, Spector.

    ...Yet Draego still came out over budget due to the tooling he would've required and has to be scaled down. Even ignoring the non-30th anniversary figures, for any of Pyre's designs to be made, the remaining 30th figures would have zero new tooling because they used up the entire budget. At least Spector follows the rules with using the Optikk/Man-E-Faces parts.

    Also, that's not the art department figure. That's the marketing figure. Both were listed in the rules, and in the Geoff Johns thread you can see that most people already figured that the marketing figure would be Scott's.

    I chose:

    Under-War (with stick accessory!)

    But I fear the stick will push it over budget.

    I voted Spector. The others are cool but seem more like Tick villains.

    I want to go on record as saying I really like Spector!! I am happy to add him to my MOTUC's collection. I would say my only comment on what I kind of would like better on this figure would be a different color. I'm not terribly fond of the purple on him. Otherwise, I think he looks really cool. I like the look of the oddly shaped red eyes! They are kind of creepy and almost made me think of Rorshark (spelling - ?) from the Watchmen.

    Also, I met Scott this weekend at Power Con and he is a top notch guy!!! For all of the work he is putting into this line and for all of the negative garbage he has to take, I truly feel bad for the guy. I personally believe that he is the best man for the job when it comes to managing this brand. He has a true passion for MOTU and it really shows through when you talk to him in person! Of course, having the best action figure sculpting team on the planet helps this line too

    Plunjor is cool! Although all these are parody characters (I hope!), they are a lot more interesting designs than Spector!

    I would like to have seen an option for "Anyone other than Spector."

    Not impressed with that one at all ... but, I guess it pays to work for Mattel.

    Spector gets my vote mostly on the fact that he has that cool Cosmic Key-esque bracer. I think with a few tweaks he'd be better. Red over yellow on the vest/belt/holster and black diamonds over the eyes would look better IMO.

    I like the drawings but Plunjor is a little too similiar to Leech with those suction cups.

    But overall they are great. I wish I had artistic talent like that.

    Spector. I like him more and more, especially the anti-symetrical design of him.

    As for the backlash to Toyguru, I was actually not so cool with there being 2 "Mattel" designs. Didnt feel it fit with the 1) 4H, 1) Bitner, 1) Geoff, 1) Fanboy. Then 2) Mattel? But since it's 1) Toyguru, 1) someone else at Mattel, that feels fine. I see toyguru as a "Celebrity". He's the ultimate Masters Fan. I"m glad to see him get an actual character in the line. The 4h gave him a nod to a head, but it wasnt "his" character.

    To me this helps make it more rounded. I am curious who's going to get the last spot, the Mattel Spot 2.

    Well well,

    what results we have here so far.

    So Mattel, i suppose it's good to see that 42% of the 85 consumers who have voted so far would prefer Spector. That's good news I suppose, if you discount the comments that some voters chose Spector as their vote because the other choices were more of a parody than an actual character to incorporate in this line.

    Still, almost the same percentage would prefer an enhanced Buzz lightyear knockoff.

    over 20% combined would prefer a parody over Spector; a Teddy-bear eared batman knockoff wielding a stick and confused about what side of his pants to wear his undies, or a drooling superhero who's superpower is unclogging the toilets of eternia.

    I dont really know what to make of these results, but seeing that Parody characters were waged against an idea that will actually be up for sale, I'd be concerned about what ideas are concieved into action figure form when it is clear that even silly concepts might be just as well appreciated.

    This thread was created to prove a point; that even absurd characters would be formidable concepts to the ones released in a similar fashion to Spector.

    Any chance we could see Astro-Naughty in full color?

    I think almost everything about Spector is bland, but his paint job is very striking, which might be winning him some extra votes over black&white sketches.

    It was a tough choice between Plun-Jor and Astro-Naughty, in the end, naughty won.
    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.

    Should I do a seriois character VS Spector poll?

    wow, it is surprising me how much people like Astro-Naughty.
    I suppose because of the 3, he is the most serious character. Also, I have heard the comments about the "parody" factor getting in the way of the votes against Spector.

    Should I do a poll with serious characters VS Spector? I have 3 new ones ready to go...
