    Let's start with the first revealed figure for the new sub-line, the long-awaited FEARLESS PHOTOG, as created by Nathan Bitner!
    http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...lessPhotog.jpg
    Next, the Four Horsemen's own Jersey Devil, the villainous DRAEGO-MAN!
    http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...egoManEdit.jpg
    The always controversial MIGHTY SPECTOR, mysterious time protector, created by brand manager and MOTU head honcho Scott "ToyGuru" Neitlich!
    http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...pectorEdit.jpg
    And getting us to current reveals, DC Comic's Chief Creative Officer Geoff John's SIR LASER-LOT!
    http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...zerLotEdit.jpg

    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!

    [EXTREMELY] great artwork!!! Keep it up!

    Thanks, gang!

    I'm glad these are being so well-received! My goal was to bring them into the MOTU universe proper, and it sounds like it's convincing a couple of you !

    And Veebs, just as a quick aside, I've been a huge follower of all of your work at the Fwoosh - it's a honor to have you seeing my work !

    As always, its good to see you active again, and to see your new pieces. Your Whiplash looks fantastic, the scales are awesome, even if they are under the foot of that awful Photog. Spector's blaster weapon looks fantastic, even if the rest of him still irks me a little. Draego-Man looks fearsome, and you actually made SLL reasonable to look at. The creature he is fighting looks utterly vile. I'm still not a fan of the character, but your piece is great.

    MAN that's awesome! Fantastic! Spectacular! Standing ovation!

    About Draego-Man: I've remarked on other threads about how his head reminds me of Ridley from Metroid, and you totally channeled Ridley for the drawing! Looks almost just like Ridley on the cover of Super Metroid! Amazing how that worked out!

    Really awesome! But can I ask where these are coming from? Are they new designs? Is Mattel releasing them?

    Good to know. Does anyone have a like to where they talk about the others? I know Photog is already on mattycollector but where did everyone learn about the upcoming releases?

    Thanks for the continuing support, gang!

    It was my goal to make these guys part of our MOTU lore, so it's very encouraging that some of these characters are warming up to people! I wonder if ToyGuru has seen my version of Mighty Spector yet? I'd love to hear what he thinks!

    Tonguelasher - Here's a link to MattyCollector.com's 2012 Toy Fair reveals; in the third photo, you can see all of these characters figures in a row:

    if they had introduced all of these characters (and the other 30th figs) in print like this, i think all of these figs would have gained more support. they really should have done the contest and promo for 30th at the beginning of 2011. starting with some print art and then maybe in a mini-comic.

    just throwing out plastic figs with no context forces us to judge the fig completely on it's plastic form. it doesn't represent anything else.

    anyway, again, fantastic job making TMS and SLL (and the other two) look really cool.
