    Lots of smack talk from Create-A-Character entrants going on in here!

    I do really hope everyone is respectful when the figure is shown. If you don't like it, that's all well and good...but please don't go on and on about how much it "sucks" and stuff. The winner will be a regular Joe (like Nathan Bitner) and a fan, not a trained artist. No need to go hating on someone and make them all depressed.

    I really do hope the design is amazing and loved by most. I'm sure that would make the winner feel fantastic!

    I would hope most of the org remembers that in general, especially in light of how certain people's "creations" have been treated.

    Just because one design is from fans and one is from someone else does not mean that person deserves to be crapped on in a hurtful way

    I can't wait to see how much everyone hates the winner's creation! Mmmm...delicious hatred.

    But seriously; I'm lookin' forward to it. I mean...there's just SO MANY different ideas out there. It could be just about anything! I'm hoping for robot parts.

    I didn't mean it like that! I just meant, these are regular people, not artists that know their work will get ripped apart, critiqued, etc. ALL professional aritsts know this will happen and toughen up or have thick skin. That doesn't mean people should be jerks to them because they're professionals, though. I had my work ripped to shreds by other professionals. It's not a very good feeling, but it happens. I also had one of my stories banned because higher ups said it was too controversial, but that's another story.

    Wow! That was quick. I can only hope that one of us sent in a design that really caught their attention and that most of the fans will like it. Then again...

    Also, I don't think they'll contact the winner until they said they would, because the form that those of us who entered the contest filled out essentially signed over all rights to the design. Mattel can change it any way they want to change it.

    By the way, Lady Deadpool has a ponytail, so Spectora is dead on! LOL!

    I am really interested to see who won, if it was anyone from the org the design should be pretty bad ass given what I have seen in the Fan Art and Customs forum and knowing who entered

    According to the rules, they plan on notifying the winner on or about July 1st. Ideally that winner will be me, but I haven't heard from them yet.

    Well no matter who wins, I would be glad for them cause just like the rest of us fans we all would like to become a part of this brand and it's history we all grew up on. I've seen some awesome customs and even artwork from time to time and have to say sometimes I wish some of the work and customs were available, but that's me. I'm an illustrator and sort of idled on creating the 3 ideas I had, and shamelessly regret it on some level but hey that's how it goes. All the best to whomever wins and even if it's not the best thing to be thought of, I will accept it cause it's from one of our own ( I Hope, LOL)!

    And now for the Horsemen doing the sculpts; I'd hate to be the odd man in the room but if I were these guys I would stir the pot over there and make Mattel really get off their asses and really do everything they can humanly possible to prevent any future defects, I mean these guys are sculpting their arses off and I would be ****** if my creation and work is being put out in a crappy and with so many issues!!! I know they have a contract and are getting paid but it's about the principle, which is why they left McFarlane in the first place. Just saying...

    So, this only applies to the "average joe" winner? For almost a year people have bashed the Mighty Spector with no regards for Scott. He's nowhere near a trained artist. I think that this respect should have been given with all the create a character creations starting with the 4 Horsemen and down to the final one.

    I so wish I could talk about who the winner is...the anticipation is killing me

    Also for the record they won't contact you till July- remember that Mattel and the 4H have total say on the direction as there was no part in the rules that said you get to work with them on it.

    With all due respect- I'll totally be just as critical of the design as I have been with Johns and Guru's entries. If you enter the contest even if you're not a professional then you should be ready to be openly critiqued by the community.

    See that logic would work as an excuse if he didn't have a "WORLD CLASS" team of artists and Geoff Johns and others to give him help ^_^

    I just get the feeling that no matter how supportive we all would like to be for the eventual winner, there will be some backlash for the poor guy/girl.

    I wonder if the Photoshop Sculptors will be even more criticial

    ^^^ This is exactly the bloody problem I've tried to explain before as well- they work so hard and then BAM their designs are dumped on. Good post.

    It won't have any robot parts Also if it is infact from an ORG member then I can say we most likely will get an amazing figure- if they don't stray far from it due to design costs.

    I agree, and frankly it would be the highest honor to be openly criticized (and/or praised) for one's character design. People can only say things about the character you created if you created a character, by which point you've already won, so nothing that anyone says about it should matter.

    As far as I'm concerned, they are one and the same. Andros aka Goat Man. Slight color and costume variations make no difference in my mind. I mean look at Clawful and Tung Lashor. Even Man-At-Arms was pretty much different in the show. If we ever do get a Goat Man, I am expecting some nod to Andros in the bio.

    no I have not been notified yet But seriously I hope the winner is someone that has been bashing Spector to death, so they can see what it feels like to have your creation rediculed and mocked by fellow fans.

    I know! That eternally trumps any and all negative comments. Sure, we all hope it is a popular and well-liked character, but the winner will be thrilled regardless.

    No one should bash Scott for the sake of bashing him, but, with all due respect, he is the face and voice of MOTUC and put his own figure in the line. He's not an average Joe. He represents Mattel, is a professional and has gotten harsh criticism for years before The Mighty Spector premiered. So, Scott knows what it's like. Also, some people are very bitter that Scott know has 3 action figures of himself in toylines he's in charge of. He also has the Spector Hotwheel car.

    I'm not saying it's "right," but it is kind of strange to see so many toys of Scott.
