    Surely this is a joke. It's like an April Fools prank. The swords are great, though.

    Ignorance isn't an excuse to the law and or concepts under it- it's one of the first rules I ever had hammered into me when studying Graphic Design and particularly design history. There have been MILLIONS of people sued because they thought a concept was unique and it's decided it wasn't.

    As I stated before, I really dig this. He's exactly the sort of far out concept that makes MOTU ridiculously great! Assuming this is real, my only design nitpick is
     
    that blonde hair. It just looks odd.I wish it was more green or gray like the rest of the figure.

    The name sounds more like a Digimon, but I like the design. As for the bio...it's going to be weird. I can think of a few ideas like
     
    The living embodiment of Castle Grayskull, final line of defense only to be summoned as a last resort

    I feel pretty bad for the winner of this contest since no matter what people are going to hate on his design for whatever reason. At the end of the day it is an original idea because few people would've actually fleshed that idea out. Then we get the bitterness because their character wasn't chosen. Berating TMS and SLL is because of who got to create them, and it can be written off as egoism. But this was made by a fan in a universe full of absurdity. Had this been your character and people called it lame or uninspired you would take offense. The guy put it out there and he won, based on a panel which probably included people whose opinion you actually respect. Sure nothing is liked by everyone but give the guy credit for doing what he did. I'm just not huge on people being rude when it comes to someone's creativity since that's the whole problem with our culture's art at this point. Internet jockeys hate on every original idea that come along so we continue to get remake after remake, which are also complained about, and this generation love the same type of video games. No one just accepts originality and most people want a consistent blending in everything but complain about it. Just my opinion. And Congratulations sir.

    With all of the people in the world, it is impossible for an idea to only be thought of by one person.
    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.

    Congratulations, then! (You lucky so-and-so. )

    I've already started getting the parts to customize one of my entries - didn't figure I'd win, but it was worth a shot.

    Ooooooooooooooooooooops, it is probably real then.

    Is masque being serious? I thought by his emoticon he was joking.

    There's one part I really like about this figure, though : the accessories (weapons).
