So, The Mighty Spector works for KING ADAM eh? Does anyone think one of his missions was to keep an eye on He-Ro (possibly KING ADAM's adopted son?).
But if so, King Adam must have already know He-Ro was going to die, because he witnessed the funeral himself back when he was PRETERNIA DISGUISE HE-MAN.
MOTUC WISH LIST: SNARRRLLL:
I'm wondering about He-Ro's job when Eldor is doing the important magic stuff all the time...
well since all this takes place in the second Mini Comic it makes Snake Man At Arms a bit more interesting since the Mini comic comes with him.
Not sure I've seen the same art since some of those OP points weren't obvious to me. No arm hacking or anything.
I am curious though about
Scott, if you're reading this, add those Council of Wisdom characters from the 200x comics! They look awesome and would compliment these guys very nicely! Okay, I know you can't really do that, but don't leave them out of MOTUC, you know?
Did I miss something? Why is it that ALOT of info only 4-5 people know? And when it does come out it's no big deal...
That art looks fantastic, and I am very excited for Veena as she looks so great.
Basically Wellington Alves sold his original sketches and finished ink pages on E-Bay and it caused a storm because it reveals a crap load of things I'm sure TG and Mattel didn't want known yet. If you read earlier in the topic it's explained in the spoiler boxes Don Honestly though you didn't miss anything that wasn't already somewhat known with the exception of the 30th figure from Higuchi.
For those wanting to learn more, expect an article later today about the whole deal! It'll explain who did the art, when the pages first premiered and why they vanished. Expect a detailed synopsis of the art so those who have not seen it can follow along the discussion. I hope (if some people respond) to have an exclusive detail or two! I will NOT be posting the art or give away links to their location. Every Body, please follow the rules and do not ask me.

'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).
I'm wondering, if Mattel wants to produce these 2 new characters...The cyborg/robot guy looks cool, I guess...
So when did these pages go up on E-Bay? Were they pulled??

Alves may need the money. We don't know the story there.
Though, legally, doesn't Mattel OWN that material? I mean, it's standard for companies like Mattel to have a clause in whatever contract they sign with an artist that it owns whatever material the artist produces.
Plus, Dark Horse is also publishing these... so maybe Mattel doesn't have any rights to it, and that's why Scott was able to swing this? It would be cheaper the less control Mattel had, I'd imagine.
A Want List of Sorts: Saurod, Buzz-Saw Hordak, Dragstor, Perfuma, Dare, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter, Prahvus, Veena, King Chooblah, Flying Fists He-Man, Terror Claws Skeletor, Snake Mountain, Filmation Variants, Roton, and all the other POP & NA characters.
Edit: I just thought of the realistic possibility that someone who works in the company or even the publishing plant itself could have possibly stolen copies of the master pages and then sold them as legit articles?
Really hope Terry's character looks like that iconic X-Men guy just for the reactions on this board alone.
Artists sell their art all the time. It's how they supplement their income.
My guess is he probably thought enough time had passed and he was in the clear since he had completed the art for this a long time ago. Usually comics are released much quicker than these MOTUC mini-comics have been. I doubt he meant any harm at all.
The minis will be out with the figures before ya know it, so desire to see the pages will be fulfilled soon enough.
