    MOTUC Visions: The three Prototypes by Roger Sweet

    Okay, this might not be for everyone, but those were something I drew a long time ago and just waited for The Power and The Honor Foundation Catalog to be out before posting them

    They are inspired by the 3 figures mock-ups created by Roger Sweet using Big Jim bodies, and used to pitch the yet-to-be-named male action figure line at a Mattel meeting in december 1980

    I'm a big fan of old designs and concept being translated to figures, and I would gladly pay a 3-pack price for those!

    Whoa, that's so cool! I'm still not too keen on the tank soldier, but the other two work surprisingly well! That's what I would liked to see in the 30th anniversary line!

    Not sure I'd dispaly or even want Tank Head, but I'd definitely want the other two. I love the concept stuff.

    Great work as always Emil.
    I wouldn't be too fussed about these being released in MOTUC (even though the Boba Fett like one looks really sweet) but releasing these would been a much better way of celebrating the 30th Anniversary IMO. These three, Photog, new contest winner and Draego-Man.

    Wow. Out of all the "Visions" you've done, this one really is my favorite! I would sooo take these in a three-pack. They are weird and very MOTU-ish I especially like the Zodac/Star Wars hybrid one!

    I like that. I cannot explain why, but when I look at them I see Photog, King Greyskull, and Icarius respectively. Well, not dead on likenesses obviously, but similarities.
    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.

    I would be all over those! As you have shown, they would make amazing figures. Very cool idea to do these and I would love to see them incorporated into the line in some fashion.

    Could you upload this to imageshack? I can't see any of your recent MOTUC visions. Opera and Firefox keep saying that they're pixel sized gifs.

    Would love to see an alternate head with the more Viking-esque helmet.
    I guess it could just be Vikor's head...

    Regardless my comment on the alt head. These are awesome and would make a sweet 3 pack!

    I think they'd have to change the color sheme on the tank guy and lose the white stars...it's just too U.S. Militaryish to look Eternian, IMO.

    He looks like a guy wearing a Transformer costume.

    Well, the point is to pay homage to the concept art/prototype, not changing or updating them
