    I'll most likely vote for Marlena. I can't say that there's any one character on there that I'm really wanting over the other.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    Hands down, Illumina.

    Plus, she'll be perfect alongside Strobo!

    I wouldn't be opposed to any of the others, but she'll get my vote.

    I'm voting for Illumina!

    I posted about this in the other thread, but Toyguru said a while back this is more of a "who do you want to see first?" kind of deal. He could take it back, I suppose, but he did say it!

    I, personally, will be very disappointed if a REPAINT or variant of a character we have 1 (or even TWO of) wins this once-in-a-LIFETIME vote where we can get a *NEW* character that has lots of tooling and not a different coat of paint.

    In my honest opinion, the only real voting candidates are:

    - Illumina
    - Geldor
    - Songster
    - Mask of Power Demon

    Again, ALL of these will probably get made. Mattel was in contact with Doug Howard (Songster) but he "couldn't talk about it." The others are very high on want-lists. Geldor won the German fan vote, with Illumina close behind. He did very well on the .org too and is one of the easy-to-make mini-comic characters.

    Illumina, on the other hand, will probably never be made unless she wins this Fan Vote. Mattel said they couldn't do her originally, until fans kept asking them about her. Then, eventually they said they COULD do her, but NEVER would. Then, we were told "management" didn't want her made (and her name and appearances were always incorrect when mentioned by Mattel...including the MVC company name who made the 200X comics).

    It's been a major "battle" just to have Illumina become a POSSIBILITY of being made as a MOTUC figure. After all of this, Toyguru's newest "Green Goddess" blog entry mentions how Mattel does not want to make some characters from MOTU media because then fans have the rights to use those characters in their personal play and stories. VERY bizarre thing to say, but I 100% believe that was talking about Illumina (again). It goes in line with the earlier "we don't want to make her" mentality.

    Also, the character selection was done purposely to split the customers votes. They put characters on their that they obviously are making to take votes away from other characters on the list, which is rather sneaky.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    See I'm really torn.....I want Illumina without a doubt for Val and the boys, for people who want more grrrls in the line, and she's awesome. Her back story could finally be revealed.

    But I really think that Camo Khan would be sooooo sweet.

    But Geldor will be made sooner or later, the same with all the others except for Illumina

    Camo Khan can be so easily made on our own, I doubt Matty was serious about making him.

    Now if Leo Faker was on the poll....

    Didn't Scott say he made this poll to help get Illumina in the line?

    What someone needs to do is get some retailer like bbts on board, they buy a ton of subs and that could mean lots of votes for Illy!

    Wouldn't it suck if everyone voted for EL on the assumption she'd be 200x under the cloak and she was just a cheapo BGEL style repaint? I think TG should give some specifics of what we'd get before we vote.

    He said in the panel that she would be a more 200X-like Evil-Lyn.

    He implied the same thing about an Evil-Lyn variant, and golly, look how well THAT worked out!

    I'm voting for Illuminia, no question! And if anyone wants to put that into perspective, look up my old posts from when they revealed BG Lyn; those rants are pretty lengthy, so to put it mildly, I want her with that 200X tunic BADLY.

    Man, this is a tough one. I really want Geldor, but I've always wanted Camo Khan too.
    Most wanted: Blast attack, Lodar, Peekablue, Twistoid, and Despara!

    You know who.



    Cloak and Dagger Evil-Lyn, of course!


    "Cloak and Dagger" Evil-Lyn®
    "Choose me or I’ll put a death spell on you. Seriously."

    When we did a new Evil-Lyn® in 200X colors, fans and customers asked for a more specific version that also included her new tunic. To deliver on this request, we propose this slightly different version of Evil-Lyn® from the 200X series when she was in allegiance to the Snake Men™. She would use the 2.0 female body buck with a single new hooded head, and include an all-new tunic and removable cloak. To create the “ultimate version” of 200X-colored Evil-Lyn®, customers could swap the new hooded head with either the helmet head or non-helmet head from Battleground Evil-Lyn®, much as Bubble Power™ She-Ra® and original She-Ra® can be mixed and matched. This is another figure we may possibly get to in our very limited variant slots, but if she wins the contest, fans just get her that much quicker!
    200X dress, Snow cloak and hood and possibly more accessories, combined with Battleground Evil-Lyn parts can give us the ultimate Evil-Lyn we've always been asking for! Out of all of those choices, that's probably the one people will use the most. Which character in that list gets more displayed than a 200X Evil-Lyn in your group of Evil Warriors?



    I like Illumina, but my desire for a more 200X-looking Evil-Lyn oversteps her.

    Can someone explain the appeal of Camo Khan to me? And if someone wants it, why not just dab blotches on your regular Khan fig? Isn't that the only difference?

    MGM: thanks for the clarification. I'd be all over that.

    Yeah, it was a sly move on TG's part.

    It was obvious that this whole idea of voting was to have .ORG put it's money where it's mouth is, and a lot of that had to do with 200x fans. But I have been wondering what the "wrinkle" would be. And we've found it.

    Basically, he split the 200x vote - want Illumina? No Cloak Evil Lyn. Want Cloak Evil Lyn? No Illumina.

    Let's hope the votes don't cancel each other out though, splitting them up enough to make another winner.

    Personally, if I do end up subbing (in "thinking about it" mode) I'll vote for Evil Lyn. I love BG EL - but I also like that cloak, and she is my favorite villain and I'm all for more variants. And, while some might get made that aren't voted, we just lost several variant slots so variants will be fewer and further between.

    I like the Marlena idea, but I haven't yet seen a clear picture of the reference to her so I don't know what she would look like. Doubt it would sway me, though, as the space suit is pretty easily customizable and pretty plain anyway.

    But yeah, sly move on TG's part - I won't upgrade it to clever, but sly seems apt.

    Crash Landing Glenn - this one seems like one that they wouldn't do otherwise, so I could see someone voting for it, but we already have a Captain Glenn, so... unless they would fix the eyes, but that's no guarantee.

    Cloak and Dagger Evil-Lynn - this one seems completely unnecessary. We have a dagger, we have cloaks, the only thing would be that EITHER she'd come with a hooded head a la Skeletor, OR they'd design a hood that the head could snap inside. Either way, we already have TWO Evil-Lyn's, and unless she came full 200X'd out... I don't see it.

    Geldor - Awesome, but mini-comic, and I think this would just guarantee him sooner than later.

    Mini-Comic Trap Jaw - another variant, so see above.

    Illumina - I really feel this will be the only way to get her.

    Songster - same as above, but it's more for humor, and I feel this would bring more wrath from the fans than satisfaction.

    Camo Khan - If the only difference as paint deco, I don't see how this would be demanded.

    Mask of Power Demon - I feel this is another that would be pretty cool, but it's only one and I thought there were two. It'd be a shame to get one and not the other.

    I feel that Geldor and Illumina are going to be the top two, and my vote would be for Illumina.

    We have a Space Suit Marlena, so while I appreciate some fans werent pleased, we dont need another one.
    We have a 200x version of Evil Lyn, so while I appreciate some fans werent pleased, we dont need another one.

    Camo Kahn & Mini Comic Trap Jaw are all very good variants that shouldnt be in this list, but their own figures down the line, for reals yo, and for sure.

    Songster & Geldor are unique characters that should definately be made.

    Mask of power demon? Meh.

    and of Course Illumina is the most likely to win, based on the '.orgers.

    But really, most of these should get made.

    I'll vote Songster of course.

    This is a tough decision! I really don't have any interest in ANOTHER Evil-Lyn (I feel like between 200X and MOTUC, she has been done to death and another version of her could not be made for a long time and I'd be perfectly happy with that!), and as much as I love Marlena, I'm not jonesing for a white spacesuit version of her. Mini-comic Trap Jaw and Camo Khan are neat, but seems like me as a cheap-out way to make "fan choice" figure. Songster.....no. Just no. I don't mind if he's eventually made, but I hope it's for some kind of exclusive like Mo-Larr was. Not really into the Mask of Power Demon, so that basically leaves Geldor or Illumina. Probably going with Illumina even though I'm not as bonkers about her as some people here are.
