    Well, to me, one of them looks like a MOTU character and the other like a DCUC or G.I.Joe made from MOTUC parts.

    Spector convinced me *not* to get the 30th sub. It's an uninspired design, I don't know what a spade has to do with time travel (does that mean Bow has time travel arrows?) or being a specter, as folks have said before, it looks too much like deadpool, it lacks the vibrant colors that pervade most of the line, and while the weapons are cool, that's where any want I have dies. He's a mashup of things that can be/are cool on their own but have come together to make crap. Spector doesn't have a ghost of a chance to make it into my collection

    Illumina suffers from a drab color scheme as well, but her design is great, and her bright blue skin gives her some extra pop. Plus she just feels more MOTUCy (that's a technical term, btw) and she's got a steed. I like her weapons, design, and the mythos behind her. I would definitely spend money on her. But you know, I'm probably one of the "same 50" who want her so my opinion doesn't count anyway.

    Amen. How many time does this need to be stated.

    I cant vote. I still dont know who Illumina is supposed to be. I know I've read about her before, but nothing sticks.

    I know I want Mighty Spector. He exists. If they made Illumina, I'd want her too, on principal at the very least.

    The second picture was in a comic book showing a teaser for a later comic. Later comic didn't have her, so she never appeared in anything besides the teaser. Other than what the creator says he had planned, that picture is about all the official information we have about her.

    As it stands, Illumina has 72.88% of the vote. Safe to say that this is a character that the majority of fans want. Perhaps it might be time for a good old fashioned letter writing campaign!

    Also: At the next Power-Con, someone should definitely start a petition for people to sign in support of this figure.

    I way both, but honestly I think Spector is more interesting.
    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

    I voted Illumina but I noticed that she seems to be wearing the same belt as both OG Teela? What the fig? does every chick in Eternia shop at the same dern store?

    I voted for Illumina, she is a great design. I'm not being mean I just don't like Mighty Spector, he doesn't feel MOTU to me.

    Illumina fits right in with MOTUC and she looks amazing!
    I really hope she'll gets made into the line

    The Mighty Spector just seems off.
    Scott even said that he didn't use the character exclusively for MOTU.
    His design fits more with super heroes imo.
    When I get The Mighty Spector in hand from the 30th sub,
    I'll make the final decision if I like him enough to keep or not.
    He definably stands a chance as I like Spector better then
    vintage characters like; Ninjor, Rotar, Twistoid and the Meteorbs...

    Illumina over Spector anyday. She just feels like MOTU to me. Spector looks like he belongs in the 90's X-Men cartoon. It's nothing against Scott, just the look of his figure. Spector is the reason I didn't buy the 30th anniversary sub. He dosen't feel like a MOTU character for my taste.
    PRO CLASSIC POP TOY DESIGN ELEMENTS BEING USED IN MOTUC TO COMPLEMENT THE FILMATION DESIGNS!!!!

    I FULLY SUPPORT THE INCLUSION OF ILLUMINA IN MOTUC!!!!!

    Wow, this is really a Charybdis/Scylla type of decision for me. Either way I choose, it's going to be painful and costly...

    I've never been a fan of her. However if I could choose between the 2. Illumina over Spector based purely on her design elements. She does belong, even if she doesn't excite me.

    Some fans feel the Star Sisters belong. I think their loud floral palette, over the top homemade-looking costume designs, and simplistic accessories make them look like tragic drag queens, or adult versions of children's princess costumes.

    I would gladly take Illumina in all her smurf blue glory, but this horse is dead. Let's not beat it too much further.

    At least Illumina looks like she's from MOTU, with her being an established MOTU race, wearing Teela boots and bracers and having a giant cat.

    Spector looks more at home in DC All-Stars or Marvel Legends.

    Can't believe this is even a question. Illumina all the way. TMS is a laughable joke. I'm still waiting for Mattel or TG to say surprise....we weren't really going to put this in the MOTU canon.

    I would like at some point to have Illumina in Classics but not as a straight up repaint of the Teela tunic. Put her through the "classicizer machine" thingie but give her her unique tunic.

    When I realized the old 2000 comics were over and I'd never see her story arch play out, I was really sad.
