    How long will the Spector thread stay bumped at the top of the forum for? It's been over 2 months now right?

    I know, it's funny. I have to search and SEARCH for some threads that should always be on the first page (like the official bios one) and the Spector thread is ALWAYS right in your face. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if a random person told me they knew who The Mighty Spector was, but asked me what the **** a MOTUC is! (joke)

    EDIT: Before anyone tells me, yes...I know there's the BIG MOTUC thread MGM made...but I always forget to look there.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    And yes, they have the same amount of new tools, but Snake MAA is a new head and accessory and that's it.

The effect is just very different.
    That's why i hope they change the arms/legs and make the armor silver. I can mix and match the parts. I can have 200X "vs The Snake Men" MAA

    They could throw that Grayskull laser-rifle in with green highlights.

    Nope, you are not alone... I don't want to go through 5 MAA,s 10 Teelas and 20 Evil Lyns just to get the version I'd like...
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Nope.

    I know Toyguru has the spreadsheets and hard data to know how strong MOTUC really is, but stuff like this makes me wonder if he overestimates how strong the fanbase's tolerance will be for Mattel to get a 200X Evil-Lyn or Man-At-Arms right.

    There is also the chance that the line might die due to mismanagement before we reach the third incarnation of those characters. With sub orders lowering this year, I'd rather nip figures in the bud the first time so that we can close the book on them and move onto other characters or looks, instead of going back and trying to get it right.

    I wish Mattel thought this way about Castle Grayskull. We would have been had a diorama. "I imagine that Castle Grayskull is a popular playset. I'm sure that Grayskull will pop up again in time."

    We don't want a Man-At-Arms with Roboto arms... look at he-man.org. The Fans don't want him different,
    yes we do.

    Personally I think this line HAS the legs to at least keep the 12 monthly/4 variants going. I also hope we see many variants because I want to be able to pick and choose what version of the character fits my ideal MOTU cannon.

    So bring on SMAA with Roboto/Trapjaw arms and legs!

    Ah, but some of us quite like these other versions... Sorry you don't, but stop raining on our parade!
    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'm worried whenever TG says the we will get everyone in time comments. I also collect DCUC and am still waiting to finish a bunch of teams. We were told the same thing from TG at the time. Blah blah in time blah blah planned out blah blah. How'd that work out? The line as we knew it is dead, and now there are online only figures. The sub sold less then planned, do you really think they're going to add the rest of the metal men?

    It was the same with the GL MM line. CnC over 5 waves, but when asked about what if the movie tanks will these be at retail? TG would just say yes we have the line planned out. I've only seen wave one up here.

    I understand the planning the line out and such, but there is no certainty that these figures will ever be produced. We have already been told less sub sales this year so there is going to be less, and no new items. It sounds like TG has the line planned for 5 more years but the upper management is just as happy to cut it at any time.

    I didn't want any Man-At-Arms variants, and 200X Evil Lyn was the only one I wanted of her, and now we still have to wait for her.

    To be fair, the line isn't dead at retail. Did you not see the Larfleeze coming in the new retail line? There's also the Batman Legacy which is DCUC quality.

    Panic is spreading like wildfire around here. Fearmingering is everywhere! Some of us could work for the media...

    Seriously though, and I understand the principals involved, but things really aren't that bad. It's in their interest for the line to do well. (I know I'm inviting all sorts of silliness with that one.)

    While I am concerned about Mattel wasting slots on halfhearted 200X variants, Snake MAA is ONE hiccup in an otherwise flawless year so far (not counting the 30th figures, since they are optional). For once, Fisto, Kobra Khan and Stinkor are vintage releases that aren't going to be scrutinized for lack of 200X heads. The long awaited Sorceress is coming out. Slushhead continues the NA winning streak. POP will have 3 new characters in one go.

    Right in ol' chum. I'm also betting that SMAA won't be as big of a dud with most as he's being heralded as so far.

    Oh, and by the way:

    Happy Halloween, everyone!

    er...how is keldor a variant of skeletor? that's like saying adam is a variant of he-man. while they might not be completely different characters, it's not like skeletor puts on a keldor costume or even has the ability to turn into keldor any more.

    More new questions are up!!!

    Snake MAA's deco might not change at all! (personally I liked the repaint fine, it was the additional accessories I wanted) And more on that 200X variant that was dumped for the Filmation character.

    At this point they really should leave it like they showed at NYCC. People have gotten attached to that look and subbing in Roboto parts isn't going to please that many people on the other side. All I want from Mattel right now before I can move on from this is some assurance they aren't going to milk the repaint/Cheapsnake variants through the sub in the future. MAA #3 with unhelmeted head and a new weapon is NOT an acceptable variant!!!

    That's true. I hadn't thought of that. Keldor is NOT a Skeletor variant.
