    Celebrating the new 30th Anniversary characters!

    Since they're so new, and in many cases, less than popular , I realized there isn't much art out there for the newest members of our MOTU family - the 30th Anniversary characters! So, I decided to make a thread celebrating the new guys, as well as the 30th Anniversary sub-line of MOTU Classics.

    Let's start with the first revealed figure for the new sub-line, the long-awaited FEARLESS PHOTOG, as created by Nathan Bitner!

    Next, the Four Horsemen's own Jersey Devil, the villainous DRAEGO-MAN!

    The always controversial MIGHTY SPECTOR, mysterious time protector, created by brand manager and MOTU head honcho Scott "ToyGuru" Neitlich!

    And getting us to current reveals, DC Comic's Chief Creative Officer Geoff John's SIR LASER-LOT!


    These guys were a ball to draw, and while I know a lot of MOTU fans consider them "red-headed stepchildren", I am more than happy to have them join our ever growing cast of new characters! And once the fifth 30th character is revealed (by Mattel MOTU Designer Terry Higuchi), I'll update him or her to this thread as well!

    And it will all culminate in a piece depicting whoever wins the coveted 6th slot, as winner of the Create-A-Character Contest!

    As always, enjoy, and cheers!

    Bearshow!

    Great work as usual man- you actually almost managed to make Spector and SLL bad-ass :O. Seriously though this was a nice treat to give a taste of how vintage art of them would have been depicted.

    holy crap bearshow, you actually managed to make Spector look cool. Somehow seeing the characters like this legitimizes them as MOTU characters for me.

    Very cool! Makes me like those characters even more.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    that artwork is awesome. but the Photog one is all wrong. Whiplash should be ripping his head off and using it to take pictures of Teela in the shower.

    HAHAHA that made me laugh my a$$ off Calligar,
    Bear, dude these are awesome, fantastic work, nice work on ' the un-populars, it goes to show that if Mattel did spend the money on new art and adds it could make these guys work, I hope Thay do that dark/ light blue combo on SLL,
    Nice job man

    Ha you beat me to it!! I was toying with an idea similar to this!

    LOve what you have done with these and your colourscheme for Sir Laser-Lot is way better than the proto we saw! The 2 shades of blue work so well!!

    Beautiful work, man. Just really fun, great looking stuff. I love your Sir Laser Lot! He looks pretty darn cool in action and I think changing up the armor to a darker blue actually helps his look overall.

    fantastic works. I like the new added color on SLL.
    It suits him very well.

    Your artwork of Dreago-Man is very impressive. I love it
