    Would you support a Gangstor figure?

    Due to the amount of support that Gangstor (or his creator) received during the recent controversy, I was wondering if anyone would actually support his inclusion sometime down the line?
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN ů INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    No, thank you. I am super happy the creator got to keep a 2013 sub though.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Due to legal reasons, Mattel would not make a figure of the character now. And while I am happy that the contestant gets to retain his prize, he should not be further rewarded for breaking the rules.

    I'd buy it if they made it, but there are way more characters that deserve a figure than this.

    I'd buy him as a new Bravestarr figure, not MOTUC.

    He reminds me too much of Buttons McBoomBoom from C.O.P.S. I am glad he got to keep his sub though.

    No way. This figure design does nothing for me I'm afraid.

    I really liked the figure. I get the fact that rules are rules and the person who obsessively kept reporting it just came across as being ridiculously bitter that theirs didn't win. That person was on a mission to get him disqualified - shame

    Nope! He also had a Silverhawks vibe instead of MOTU... I'd take another character instead
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I liked him. I'd buy a Gangstor figure.

    This makes no sense. Mattel owns the rights to the character now. Meaning they can do whatever they want with it, even make the character if they wanted. That's what the rules said when turning in your CAC contest entry in. And how is he "breaking the rules"?

    Copyright protection arises the moment a work is fixed in a tangible medium. In the case of a fictional character, this is when the character is carefully delineated in a published literary work or illustration. With regard to matters of copyright, "published" means only that the work has been made available to the public. Even though the creator agrees to assign his exclusive rights to the character to Mattel through his participation in the contest, by posting an illustration of the character on the internet, the creator effectively published the work before Mattel, making its authorship contestable. That is why Mattel requires contestants to submit their entries on an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper enclosed in an envelope and to not post images of their entries on the internet. While Mattel technically and legally holds the rights to this character, the amount they seek to gain from commercially exploiting it is not greater than the amount they would spend defending their right to it, so they most certainly will not do anything with it now.

    As with Castle Greyskull Man, I have no interest in this design. I will avoiding it if such a figure is included in a sub line. I've seen too many characters on this site that I feel deserve a figure before this one.

    This.

    Not to offend their creators, but when the winner and runner-ups of the contest were revealed, I was seriously underwhelmed.

    No. Not interested, especially considering the 'unknown' status of the line. Bring on the characters we need rather than want...

    Absolutely not. Just looked him up, and have zero interest in that design, period.

    is there a pic of this guy??
    Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a darkside.
