    Worst Figure of the 30th Anniversary Subscription

    Ok...so I thought a Companion piece was needed here, It was always gonna be Draego as Favorite, then CGM and Photog......

    ....But The Battle for worst is where the real interest is.....For me it is Loser Lot. No contest!

    so Who is your 30th Anni Turkey...and why?

    Cy-Chop said and done! Apologies to those who actually like him.

    I had to go with grayskull man. I just don't see the appeal of turning a playset into a character.

    Hard...does it go to worst practicality (Cychop) or worst concept (TMS)?

    I am giving the edge to TMS because the idea/concept was from a child's eye and not fully developed. Lots of obvious nods to Deadpool and Gambit. The creator tries to repurpose a spade. You can't reassign established symbolism. Like saying a "heart" symbolizes map-reading or a swastika meaning "violent rain". To nonsensical to be plausible.

    I voted SLL. I just can't stand him. With Cy-Chop, I'm hoping that in a future weapons pack that we get an orange Horde Prime hand. That would redeem him a lot, I think, in fan's eyes.

    I've got The Mighty Spector and Sir Laser-Lot tied for worst. I voted Spector because at least SLL's parts can be used to make other knights, which I'd be in favor of.

    Cy-Chop looks too weird to fit in (which is saying something in MotU), but at least his design is creative.

    It was a tough choice but in the end I chose Sir Laser Lot. Spector I can both get some good action poses out of and I can also use his parts to create other characters. Sir Laser Lot on the other hand I can not get a good pose out of to save my life. He just looks lame no matter what I do with him on my shelf. That and the fact that his plume is half snapped off and the paint on the handle of his sword has been scraped off simply by putting it in/removing it from his his hand also makes him the #1 candidate for worst figure of the bunch.

    You know, as I've always felt; TMS would've been so much better if his color-scheme was different from the purple and yellow, with definite tweaks in his purpose and story. I never had a problem with the initial concept and a spectral time traveler who is ghost amongst the time stream would work way better for me. Cy-Chop is just a too much / not enough for me.

    Not only is Mighty Spector the worst figure in the 30th sub line he's the worst figure in the entire line. I don't see him loosing that title either. He looks like a reject from the 90's X-Men, his backstory and power are awful.

    I dont have any issues with the TMS figure (well aside from that stupid darn Spade.)....

    ...but I have HUGE issues with a time travelling character who was basically designed to 'police' the time lines and alter them accordingly.....Seriously that can of worms has NO place in MOTU.

    Spector is the worst design, concept, backstory, explanation, power, & name. Ladies & gentlemen we have our turd. Not only worst in the 30th, but MOTUC period. I hold Mo-Larr in higher regard than him.

    Knew it the second I saw him that the next 3 figures had nowhere to go but up.

    Castle Grayskullman would be better if he didn't look like He-Man in a costume.

    Seriously, who thought having his waist smaller than his torso was a good look? He should have come with a new belt.

    ^This.

    Out of the package, Cy-Chop leaves much to be desired. Namely hands. Once he gets hands, or a hand, or some Spymonkey goodness, MOTU King Walder makes a great companion piece to Roboto (which is a rip off Henshin Cyborg himself as well).

    SLL also leaves a lot. He is much too blue and the only contrast being directly red does make him look a bit generic. But I like him being with the right swaps- he turns Mekaneck from zero to hero. SLL's contribution was saving one of the lamest vintage characters. For that he should be commended.

    While I like all of them I had to go with Spector. He's the most boring of the lot and misses his energy whip. That part would have really made him feel more special to me.

    I went with Photog. I didn't know about him as a contest winner in the vintage line, so this figure doesn't have the 'we were promised this guy but he never happened" nostalgia. He's the only 30th anniversary figure I passed on. Colors don't do it for me, and he has a giant camera head.

    I'm happy he was put in the line for histories sake, just not one I feel any attachment too.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    I voted CGM.

    Now, I really quite like all if them and feet singly don't understand the animosity some have incurred, but CGM gets my vote just because of his overall usefulness in the MOTUC story. He's a Deus ex machina more than even TMS; that's not a bad thing in my opinion, mind you. I like that he's like the army of ghosts in LOTR:ROTK. But with such cool characters with more opportunity for further adventures as an angsty dragon-man, a time cop, a displaced knight, a scientist trapped in his creation, and a Frankenstein-esque bounty hunter with a vendetta against a fan-favorite character, a one-time spell used to tidy up a battle(ground) leaves me with my answer.

    (That said, how cool would it be if CGM failed to dissipate or return to the vault after his use and He-Man and She-Ra had to track him down and they had to destroy him...?)
    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

    Tied between TMS and SLL. I'm surprised CC has a lot of votes. Maybe that's cuz he doesn't have a comic where he's the main character like SLL does...

    Gotta vote Cy-Chop on this one. I don't get this figure at all, I don't think any single body part makes sense with any other body part, and the giant scissor hands are beyond ridiculous. Sorry, I know some disagree and I respect that, but I'd rather take a dozen bland Lazer-Lots or Spectors than a Cy-Chop.
