where is my "neither, both are equally stupid" option?
Mo-Larr sux waaaaay more than Spector. Those that disagree either actually like Robot Chicken and/or enjoy crucifying Toyguru on a daily basis.

Here's the thing: It's a lot harder to make a decision than many think.
Mo-Larr is Obviously a joke character since he first showed up in a Robot Chicken sketch.
Spector is a serious character created for the 30th anniversary. His creator says that he made him an entry in the 80s contest.
Here Spector seems to be more MOTU worthy...
Name defines his identity (or action feature in some cases):
Mo-Larr, obviously sounds like Molar, tooth, dentist... ( the same way you can associate the names with their actions like: Stinkor, stinks or Trap Jaw, has a spring loaded mouth that can trap stuff, or Dragstor, dragster, drag racing, he races across the floor)
The Mighty Spector, OK so what does he do now? Mighty, he's strong... Nope! He's a ghost? Nope! wait He's a Former Palace guard who has been chosen to become a Time Traveller... wait what!?
Mo-Larr wins this category hands down.
what does he look like?
Mo-Larr: An Eternian wearing a dentist coat.
Spector: A purple suit and a yellow harness with a spade on his chest. He also has an iCosmic Key NANO. He does have a 90s Superhero vibe to him. (Gun, holster, the leg strap with his ammo, the Purple spandex and yellow harness, and last but not least the chest insignia)
While both are made with a LOT of shared parts from Eternian figures, both kinda look out of place next to the rest of Eternia's crew.
I would have to say: Draw
Now, why I voted Mo-Larr:
He may look a tad out of place, being a dentist and all that, but the whole name that tells you what he does and that you can tell what does he do by looking at him gives him a SLIGHT advantage over Spector.
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.
Imho, neither of them... But I eventually voted for Mo-Larr, picturing that this poll question was asked to me by an angry mobster holding his gun to my head at point blank range and forcing me to choose or die.
Krosfyah brought up all the arguments imo, so no need to repeat...

mo-larr because he was made to look like motu.
spector looks more like a early 90s comic character.
Both! This entire toyline has been ridiculous from it's inception! Just look at vintage Mer-Man's shocked and horrified face. I LOVE IT. All of it. They can throw whatever they want into this line. It's all hilarious to me.

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
Spector by far over Mo-Larr....
Although I sure do love the HAR-DE-HAR factor that comes in every box of Mo-Larr Flakes, I'm sold on Spector!

You forgot the 3rd and 4th options:
"Which figure was a bigger waste of money, tooling, packaging, storage and time? Mo-Larr!"
"Which figure was a bigger waste of money, tooling, packaging, storage and time? Spector!"
Made it through Cyber Monday with everything I wanted, well, almost.
