    Whoopi Goldberg is so much more MOTU than Spector, actually she is the May figure!

    Listen if you bought the new MOTUC Batman... Spector looks like a really cool villain for Batman to beat up. He looks great next to that batman, and it really makes me think that a few more DC guys would be awesome in that size.... I'd love a DC Warlord!!!
    I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!

    If people dont like the time/ space warp that is attached to Spector...
    Its mentioned in the very first MOTU mini-comic about the Battle Ram's descrption. Something about it having spacewarp capabilities?
    So, technically Scott is playing in the vintage sandbox and creating/merging the Eras into a more thought provoking concept...Time and space are classic sci fi fantasy plot points.
    Yes, Spector looks like an 80's kids idea of cool, but the time agent idea is a pretty
    clever and fun inclusion.

    Linking Spector to the Battle Ram is a real stretch, Dude.

    Its true.
    Its a long shot of comparing the two, but the larger space and time ideas were always there.
    I understand that Spectors time traveling is a Mulligan/ do over for the MOTU franchise.
    But looks aside, hes a welcome addition and can possibly help fuse all the canons into a cohesive story line.
    Fantastical!

    Seriously though, he just needs to fade away. For someone who is supposed to be a very minor character who isn't over powered at all, he sure seems to show up. A lot.

    Let's look at some recent appearances...

    Mentioned in the DC Comics series, in the Digital Issue #1

    On the back of the King He-Man cardback

    On the back of Snake Face's cardback (makes little to no sense...maybe because he's a Preternia character?)



    Even the "joke" appearances are getting stale... a "Time Agent" faction symbol...really? These are starting to feel less and less like fun, goofy, joke things and more like forcing him into the story and just disguising it as a joke. Remember, anything that gets people talking about the line is a good thing, right?

    His design does not feel right to many fans, and he is likely the most unpopular of the 30th anniversary line. No other character from the 30th anniversary line makes constant appearances in official media like Spector does. Plus he plays some kind of role in the 3 main "Eras" of the story and bios. Just too much exposure.

    I don't take issue with him being in the line, but for heaven's sake, can't we move on?

    I would like to hear from folks who feel the same way as I do.
    I agree with this. The Mighty Spector seems so contrived and excessive right now. Enough is enough. I don't mind the figure as much as others do, but I certainly don't LIKE it or the character. But too much overexposure is never a good thing, regardless of personal feelings about the character.

    I agree with this for the most part (leaving aside the Battle Ram bit) He is a Mulligan and I think he has been used kinda sparingly so far. A mention here and a back-of-the-package-there really doesn't count as saturation of the whole line. I also don't think he is over powered... he is a dude in a suit.

    Not my favourite figure by any stretch of the imagination though but I do like him more than most I guess and I do think he gets a lot of underserved stick.

    I dont mind the figure, but I do not enjoy the amount of exposure that MS gets in the bios. So I agree, the MS needs to go into a quiet, secluded retirement.

    I'm starting to like Spector. IMC, his character is becoming a cool mix of Kang and Deathstroke.

    I broke down and picked up the DKR Bats to stand with my MOTU collection. Wonder Woman, Superman, a Green Lantern would definitely be cool. The Warlord sub should go as followed:

    -Warlord
    -Arak
    -Machiste
    -Hercules
    -Deimos
    -Mikola

    What is this thread about again?

    Why would we do that to a character that actually makes a viable contribution to the series

    If Scott releases a bio for Illumina that says the two are star crossed lovers then I think you will have a case and I expect this thread will become exceptionally popular

    Disagree 100%. The difference is Battle Ram never time travelled. Plus a vehicle and a character are two different things. Saying a vehicle that can time travel is the same as an unwanted mundane looking character that time travels just to have an excuse to be crow-barred into every MotU era is a stretch imo.

    Wow. Just wow. What next, will TG show up as Ken's cousin? Will a Toy Boo-you show up in Monster High? How about he takes over for Commissioner Gordon in the Batman universe?

    Yuck! He's in 6 separate comic issues.

    Nite-Lik was named by Geoff Jones,(or so I have been told...) designed & Sculpted by the 4HM [looks awesome!] and is only secondary/swappable parts with more prominent Red Lantern Skallox. He was a marketing ploy, a "figure first" like Golden Pharaoh.

    I also read that Geoff Johns designed him. So GJ has a figure in MOTUC and a digital comic devoted to him, and TG has a figure in DC and appears in at least 6 issues of their comics. So this all had to have been worked out between them, and I just don't like it. I don't like that (bad) decisions about MOTU and MOTUC are being made this way - TG is treating this like it's his own sandbox.

    If this is what needed to happen to get the comics created, I guess the ends justify the means. But if the comics were going to happen anyways, I just can't stand this.

    And of course, the whole stinking Zodac corp....
    Attachment 83561




    Ahhhh now 'I hate time travel' is a legitimate complaint. And not something that anyone could say will change your mind. It's legit. Right up there with "I hate cowboys or I hate ninjas". However, timetravel did not START with TMS. Time portals, disks, spells, and of course cosmic keys introduced the concept long ago.

    The original line even had He-man riding dinosaurs by the time it was over...

    Fans of Time travel stories understand the ideas of paradoxes and what ripples would happen... If TMS went back and stopped Keldor in his crib... he never would have been knocked through time and gotten the suit.... which means he couldn't have taken out Keldor in the crib... Its vicious. SOME things he can do... some he can't. Every ripple he makes in the deep past... threatens the present or the future.

    With no Hordak... there would be no Skeletor... without skeletor, Adam may not have gotten the sword... and caught that run away asteroid!

    Or Shokoti would have destroyed the world by now... Hundreds of possibilities.



    My take on it was this... (first of all, I didn't recognize that as Skeleteen' in the last panel. I figured it was king Skeletor or something... ) Regardless... Faceless one said something about the 'guardian line' must be protected... or something. I'm at work right now.

    Which to ME when i read it... meant that he saw the future, and knew that his own bloodline would be continued through the baby... and if he killed Keldor now, it wouldn't happen.

    It has to take place after Evil Lyn loses her powers, since she isn't yellow in that image...

    I don't know what kind of trouble bringing him to the future causes... nobody does yet. But he NEEDED to survive, so maybe it was the best chance? Or they needed to team up with him in the future? How many times did Skeletor, He-man, and Sorceress 'combine their power' in Filmation?? Can't do that if dead



    The MOTU storyline jumped the shark LONG ago... Between dinosaur mounts, the 3 towers and then New Adventures... there's not a lot of damage that CAN be done to story.

    The biggest problem is that people don't understand his powers... But that is really STANDARD for MOTU. MOST of the characters in the original line... we know NOTHING about. They MAY have powers.. but we don't know thier limits... their names... personalites...

    Even the original minicomics were hard pressed to give us any real information on guys like Mekaneck, jitsu, Kobra Khan, moss man, syklone... the list goes on and on. We usually got a one sentance description, and then had to use our imaginations to decide who these guys were.

    Zodac? What did he do? was he a good guy or a bad guy? Did he have any powers? We never got ANYTHING on that guy and he was an original 8 back... Even the original media stuff couldn't decide what to do with him.,,,

    Now he's a green lantern rip off with a whole corp behind him

    Is Spector a favorite of mine?

    Nope. Not even close! however there are a LOT of characters in the MOTU that I dislike a LOT more then him.

    Zodac, Whiplash, Squeeeze, Snoutspout, saurod, gwildor, All 25+ NA characters.... about 10 or so PoP characters... and that's not even counting the 'new' characters that never got figures... Vikor, Vykron? Fighting Foe Men?? (Ok, i actually like the Talon Fighter guy...)

    MOTU has always been a series of hits and misses... and not everyone's opinions are the same... I just find it a little silly to rail against one particular character over and over again... when there are so much WORSE out there...

    Kayo!!! Seriously... Pants and a white tank top... THAT'll fit in the line O.o

    Was admiring the MOTUC collection lining the shelves of the office this weekend and settled visually upon Spector at one point, ruminating on how much hate this figure constantly gets on the board. Personally I think he's great and an excellent addition to the mythos- guaranteed to stand the test of time- but obviously most fans mileage may vary. I've never been able to tell why so many hate this guy- other than to bust Scott TG's canastas- but I see him as rife with possibility for future incarnations. A time traveling character is a great idea which opens the door to so many variation possibilities it's not funny. Now Matty just needs to capitalize on this potential. Here me Matty?
