    How do you vote? I only saw something where you can rank figures you want, but nothing ot vote on.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I think what you are referring to is the vote. You rank them from which ones you want the most down to the least, and then at the bottom there is a submit vote button.

    I find it sad that this even needed to be explicity said. The fact that she specifically has been mentioned most of the time the fan vote has come up seemed like an obvious suggestion that this was our chance to get her done.
    But whatevs. I voted for Hawke as my #1 anyway.

    Hey Scott...quick question if you happen to see this...

    Has there been any discussion as to what the procedure will be if there is a tie on the Fan Choice figure voting; involving the final 8 characters?

    Is there a tie breaker planned, will Mattel make both characters, is the poll designed so there can't be a tie? Just curious.

    Thank you for the post. I think this goes a long way toward being gracious. That is something I respect and appreciate greatly.

    I voted for her, because on that list I wanted her most.

    But I also want her because, to me, if made in MOTUC, she would represent the realization of lost potential in the 200X line. I think those of us who are 200X fans will always be sad that the line didn't continue (though I love MOTUC more), and that the comic book wasn't able to go the distance creatively because of the extreme limitations placed on MVC by Mattel at the end, and the financial burden placed upon MVC too

    Of course, I think she's also a great female addition to the MOTU faction! She's a fighter with some mystical powers. She has a great color scheme. She's a Gar (which is just interesting to me - I love the themes about the Gar that have been introduced in the bios).

    Thank you. I've been wondering about that. That is a nice perk for subscribers.

    I was just going to ask something similar to this. Anyways, Scott/TG maybe it is just my plain ignorance and I apologize in advance, but would you be able to tell me the names of the other sites besides our site and that German site? I'm just curious where Mattel's top brass obtains their demographics? Does top brass at Mattel really truly know who Count Marzo is? Honestly? Did they really think he'd be a show stopper? I'm asking in ernest too. I just fail to see how the shirts at Mattel know Illumina from Frosta to be honest with you. Yes yes we all want Frosta, I don't even really care for her, and I want her more than Illumina. However, I never ever wanted Gygor, or Pre-ternia he-man, or even the Star Sisters before her. For me personally she represents something more than just a concept character. How can The Brass justify a, let's face it, less than stellar giant lemon-lime gorilla with almost no backstory versus a character fans have been clamoring for, since their debut?
    You say that she's just too obscure, well, .... I've heard of her and never heard of Gygor, it's why I didn't buy him to be honest. I'm even still reluctant to get him at 19.99 on some on-line shops. It's just a character that has no place in my MOTUC mythos. It's a personal decision to be sure but due to the fact he had less than stellar sales I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. He sat on the website for a bit too.

    In closing I'd like to say, in no way was the above an attack, I know that it can be misinterpreted, but it was merely a barrage of questions I think some of us in this thread and on this forum want to know. Thank you.

    P.S. did you say hurumph? I love it..... "hey I didn't get a hurumph from that guy"...

    scott´s already said multiple times that illumina was not going down well with upper management, so this isn't new. in general though, upper management have had a lot to say about a lot of things; remember a year ago when everyone was saying they wanted scott in charge and upper management was a dirty thing? nothing has changed since then apart from people deciding TG was an easier target.

    Anyway, how about Swiftwind ? Any word on that yet ? Swiping some stuff under the rug, are we ?

    Thanks for posting Scott, I too hope we can put an end to the conspiracy theories and negative posts.

    Illumina is one of my most wanted figures and for me it has nothing to do with her being created by Emiliano, its because she looks cool! She's dark and mysterious, and what little we do know about her sparks the imagination. She's the Boba Fett of MOTU!

    How about you show that group some respect by not constantly using the 'small but loud' term since you ought to be aware by now it really grinds, and is rather offensive to ... the biggest he-fan community in existence.
    Thank you.

    And yes, please address the swift wind legs issue. I haven't received my sub yet, so Im still living in fear I may have a backwards leg version.
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..

    Are illumina supporters really that small of a group ? Didn't "she" won the vote poll with about 7 thousands clicks?

    The voters so far are heading towards 1600.

    After reading TG's post, do you still hope Illumina will not win/that you'd pull her out of the vote even if she wins (if it were up to you alone)?
