    Still like the yellow and purple though. Gold and purple is my favorite color scheme.

    One thing, though. While watching the video, the following caught my attention.

    I guess Spector likes to time-travel to San Fernando.

    Thanks for the review.

    I like The Mighty Spector. I've got anniversary subs so he's heading my way.

    I thought that to. But I did like how he was standing with the Scott figures.

    No. It spells Zex. Which is the Eternian word for sex. The word "sex" does not exist in any way shape or form in the Eternian language.

    I work in comics, good sir. I colored most of the infamous New X-Men story where Ethan hid "sex" into a bunch of pages. My mind was always scanning for that sort of thing thereafter.

    These days, comic book editors are constantly on the lookout for stuff like this, and I've had to fix a number of things where artists have tried to hide stuff in art. Sneaking stuff into comics for major publishers can be risky business. From what I understand, Disney seems especially cautious of it. And since they own Marvel, well... there ya go.

    The name is the only thing I don't really like - Tend to call mine "Temporal-Man"... Cheesy as hell I know, yet appropriate for the universe in which he finds himself!

    The wrist device is actually nicely detailed there. Totally reminds me of the Predator self destruct wrist device which I'm sure most people wish it really was for Spector...

    But not me. I think he looks pretty awesome. Great color scheme, great accessories. Wish we got them all though. I'm still gonna continue to cry for those weapons that got cut to make it out eventually via "deluxe weapons pak" or something.

    Dan was all business in this review. No reference to the April Fool's episode and not even a Comparison Time™ with Deadpool. He did look pretty good amongst the super heroes and X-Men though. I agree that he fits best in the MOTUniverse within the NA-style aspect of it.

    Now I'm off to go read the youtube comments, see if there's any entertainment in there.

    I see TMS as a S.O.H (son of he-man) character more than N.A ,I think he is from that period (in fact he works for king he-man).

    Hmm, I'm not taken back or really excited by Spector, or is it gonna be Sextor now? man Scott can't get a break, geez. Actually kind of plain to me. However based on its own merit there are a few nice details thrown in, overall nice solid figure imo. Looking forward to having him in hand, thats when I can truly make up my mind on him. Havin zero nostalgia always works against even the best figures like Draego for me, I wasn't sold on even him till he was in hand.. As others have mentioned Spector does seem a bit more NA... I have a 30th sub so he's on his way regardless. Sub or not though, I would definately have picked one up on sale day.. I'll display him just like all the rest, PROUDLY!!

    Thanks Dan. As always, a great review.

    Someone just got done watching The Lion King.
    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.

    Maybe the letters on his wrist device are a tribute to the great Pepsi Cool Cans of 1990.

    Sector rocks. I'm really quite excited about getting him so soon! I don't buy the whole "he doesn't fit in" mentality. In fact, In My Canon, he travels the Multiverse negating everyone else's.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I cant understand why TMS include 2 cosmic keys instead of just plugging the energy blade into the cosmic key. More plastic wasted, more paint apps wasted...

    In one figures they cut too much costs, in other they loose their shirts.

    I didnt liked Sir Laser Lot at first, but now I love it.

    Im trying to love Spector but I cant. He and Dekker, the only 2 MOTU characters I dislike.

    Oh man...a sex scandal is the last thing The Mighty Spector needed! He might just Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian his way to the front of MOTU!

    Just joking. I like him fine. He is more DC or Marvel looking, but I think he's okay. I REALLY wish he had a clip-on "screaming skull" from Tri-Klop's ring to put on his harness. If he's working for King He-Man, it only makes sense to have the symbol of Grayskull (which they're all working to protect, to protect the universe...right?). I hope someone makes one. That would be pretty darn awesome!

    Hope I find a cheap extra or two for customizing.

    You don't like Dekker?! What's wrong with Dekker? I really liked him in MYP. The only thing I did not like was that it took over a character Filmation already introduced in the same role.

    the name does stink. but what if when he travels in time, he only appears as an intangible, translucent being?
    somebody mentioned the original Cosmic Key was a security risk; if the traveler wasn't able to physically interact with actions, that'd be yet another added level of control over time manipulation. thus "Spector" would be a lot more appropriate.

    and how might Spector look with Grizzlor's top armor instead of the spade/Cyclops/Deadpool thing?

    Scott has already long ago said that the cosmic key was planned that way, but it making the small cosmic key work as a plug made it too weak.

    Overall Spector seems like a pretty low-tool figure, he's almost entirely reused besides his head hand and accessories.

    It's a subliminal message! Those were banned because they worked. It's like the naked lady in the ice cube for a print, beer ad. Sales went through the roof!

    Eh, I don't know what all the fuss is about. I like him. When we finally have a NA He-Man, this guy will look pretty awesome standing behind him as some kind of futuristic Secret Service agent or something. I just hope they don't sell out before I find out about this job I'm going after. I'd like to pick up at least one more since the basic-ness (Yay! I just made up a word!) kind of works for him. I can use the extra buck for dress-up with some of my extra accessories (new character time!) and remove the spade (the only part I really don't like) from the extra harness and put the symbol of Grayskull on it, giving my display figure an alternate harness without ruining his regular one.

    Yeah, I have read how Disney is going their movies frame by frame to avoid adult stuff that presumably can be found in movies like Roger Rabbit (in early versions). I presume this is joke by the Horsemen?

    It's all making sense. The message, the "suit" and...

    So his biggest weakness is running out of ammo while on a mission. If he has no pellets he can’t use his weapons or open a time tunnel.
    I am done. Dead. Deceased.

    I don't mind it all that much. I like the fact that he's tied in with the cosmic key. Regardless, if you didn't purchase the 30th sub you don't have to worry about it.
