    Galoob's Golden Girl Figures & Unmade Concepts In MOTUC (Support Thread)

    Yeah, I know it's highly unlikely Mattel would seek out the license to Golden Girl and the Guardians of the Gemstones, but maybe with enough support they may consider it one day after we've burned through most of the wanted MOTU/POP/NA/2002 stuff.

    How cool would it be to see some of these unmade concepts for GGATGOTG make it into Classics?

    I only rediscovered the line a few years ago. The designs are very barbaric and "dungeons and dragons." The armor and weapons have some great design details as well. (In fact, I'd actually prefer many of the GG designs to POP.) I was contemplating doing a custom MOTUC GG but didn't know if fans would even recognize her.

    Yeah, it's a long shot to have them in classics but I for one would welcome them.

    I'm a Golden Girl's fan! My female cousins had them all when we were kids so they would intract w/MOTU & POP. Sapphire was my favorite then, & I even had Ogra, but I really like Dragon Queen now I even purchased 1 earlier this year MIB.

    I am SOOOOOO glad you showed me these concepts (& website) Tallstar as I plan on creating some Golden Girl character art for my MOTU : Origins art card series of some of my favorites!

    I don't think these will ever be in MOTUC but maybe approaching the 4H is a good idea as I heard they are interested in other 80's lines to create w/their own company like they did with "Power Lords."

    Whoa! These are some cool designs! But yeah, if these aren't affiliated with Mattel at all, then I don't see why they would go out of thier way to seek them out. Highly doubt they would get enough support either.

    Still, I would totally back it. At the very least these designs don't have any dumbed-down Filmation designs to get in the way of the details.

    That would be amazing, but even if the 4H could acquire the license to make these gals, sadly it would probably be too expensive for them to make them compatible with Classics scale. I think that's why they opted for 3.75" scale on Power Lords.

    I came into this thread hoping for Bea Arthur.



    I have been sorely disappointed.

    Here's a rare telestory in case some of you are interested in hearing what some of the Golden Girl characters sound like. (turn down volume, as quality isn't the greatest)

    Love Golden Girls.

    But of course this is MOTU. And though they were just as awesome to include with POP, much like the knock off lines targeted to MOTUC, I wouldnt really expect or demand it get somehow included in this line.

    But hey, someone out there, buy this property and start working on them.

    OMG, I've never seen those designs before (then again, I'm relatively new to GG). Spidra and Pearl in particular are my favorites, but Moth Lady remains the best design IMO.

    I would buy any of these in a heartbeat. There really needs to be more female-centric action lines.

    I'd be down for this as a sub-line for POP. But I would also want Blackstar and Warlock included into MOTU.

    The Golden Girl line is so underrated. I would fully support their inclusion in Motuc. Heck 4H could do their own line for these fantastic characters.

    Can't we make some kind of petition or something to support Golden Girl & Blackstar to be made in MotuC-style? ...maybe if enough people would support this...?

    It doesn't really work that way. You are talking about legal issues and licensing issues. A "petition" isn't exactly the way to go as this is Not just a request for a company to release something. Not trying to be negative, just shining some reality lite from experience.

    I saw the Golden Girls for the first time earlier this year at a toy show. I thought the figure designs were rather impressive. Based on that a revival could be pretty interesting.

    Didn't Hasbro buy Galoob ?

    Couldn't a petition be shown to demonstrate support (provided it was of significant size) to someone as a way to try to show that IF they licensed something there'd be a market to sell to?

    So what would be a good and positive way to attempt to bring such characters from Blackstar or Golden Girl for that matter into the line?? Or is there a positive way to do so??
