    How would you all feel if one of the Filmation figures was Lou Scheimer?

    How would you all feel if one of the Filmation figures was Lou Scheimer?

    Similar to how the 4H sculpted a Toyguru head for the palace guards, and one of the SDCC figs was Mo-Larr; a Lou Scheimer figure would be a nice homage to a person who was instrumental in the creation of one of the greatest forms of MOTU ever.

    A Lou figure would be an outstanding form of respect to such an important figure in the animation industry...

    (Maybe Mattel could reuse his buck for characters like Melaktha...)

    Maybe a sub/con exclusive?

    A Matty.com exclusive?

    What do you think?

    It would be cool/weird, but I don't feel that MOTU is the perfect line to toss in NEW Characters as nods to creators or people involved with the franchise. I could see this working on a Comic Book line like Marvel Legends (which they did a Stan Lee Figure in 2010 IIRC). Don't get me wrong, I LIKE the Idea. I just don't feel that it could work unless they made an "Etherian Villagers" pack where one of the heads is a young Lou Scheimer or something.
    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 like the idea of the figure but think it would be more appropriate outside the sub.

    That would be awful. If they did townsfolk and they sculpted an old man like Lou, thats fine. But I do not want a Lou figure. Unless it replaces Glimmer in the regular sub (Im kidding PoPers)

    I don't want an action figure of an artist. I want action figures of adventure heroes.

    An alternate Lou head for some figure might be fun as an SDCC thing. Maybe he could come with Plundar or something. Just a fun accessory to put on a body of your choosing like a Palace Guard or Horde Trooper or something. Might be kind of silly, but kind of fun too.

    I just figured if they made a Madam Razz her face under the hat would be modeled after Lou Scheimer...

    It would be an amazing homage to an important contributor to the motu property.

    At the very least, Lou had something to do with motu....

    I'd be for a King Miro (for example) with Lou face, but not a Lou figure in itself.
    A "guy in suit" figure is of no interest no matter who it is. I do think the man is a genius who should be acknowledged in the line in some way, if only as an 'actual name' for a character.

    Maybe as an alternate head for a Filmation character or someone like Eldor, but I don't think an entire figure devoted to him is necessary.

    I agree...

    I agree…it'd really be fun as well. I DID NOT want Mo-Larr, but I'd certainly want Lou Scheim–Orr!

    Maybe as an exclusive or an alternate head…a Lou alt head for a Storm Trooper would be awesome!!

    Absolutely not. Ridiculous things like the TG figure and bio, The FFM's names and Spector are complete wastes of slots and the absolute worst thing about MotUC.

    I wholeheartedly disagree with the FFM. Perhaps the characters can be viewed as a waste of a slot for some but why would you be upset over the names? They were generic characters who have no names and there is absolutely no reason to not pay homage to the less heralded members of the 4HM studios. I think your assertion that such a homage is a complete waste and the worst thing about MOTUC is deeply insulting to those individuals and other fans.

    Similarly, the only way to work Lou (or anyone affiliated with the brand) into a slot is with other generic characters and I'd be fine with that but I can't see us getting too many more of those at this point.
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    The "real name" of one of the characters can be Erik Gunden as a nod.
