    I think it's okay to critique the winning design in a respectful way, but when all is said and done, the responsibiliy is on the panel to choose the best/most appropriate design. It's really not the same scenario as most of the other 30th anniversary figures, where there was no vote.

    If and when I win the contest, you all are free to bash my character. Ill just comfort myself with my action figure. Haters be hating brothers. I'll glady sign your figures if you can find me.

    The 3 figures are obviously a Snake Evil Lyn (same Teela armor but in Green!), a Battleground Mighty Spector, and the grand winner of the Create a figure contest... Meet IPHONOS, mighty multitouch warrior.

    I think it's totally OK to critique it, after all, we'll be spending OUR money on it, so it's more than OK.

    I wish TMS would time travel to July and back to let me know who won. Knowing it has already been decided makes the waiting worse.

    I know what you mean. I still cling to hope, but the waiting is torture!

    Thanks, sir.

    Another thing to consider is that, presumably, the winner doesn't get to approve or offer input on the sculpt; they would have absolutely no control over how the 4H translate their design into figure form. Certain specifications may be left out, misinterpreted -the character may get an undesirable looking face- and engineering may have to make some changes. Also bios - While Nathan was sent (e-mailed?) the bio in advance (I think they were willing to make changes too if he didn't like it?), Mattel might not do the same thing for the winner of this contest. They might end up changing something that was necessary to explaining the character or would have made it cooler to the folks here.

    Will Scott or the 4H at least tell us whether the fan created character is a male or female? By knowing this, I'll know whether to have my character comissioned as a custom and not wait for the SDCC reveal which is a long way aways, cause I really love my design and all the parts needed for the design are already released.

    That would be awesome. Some people only created one or the other, so this single detail would let a lot of people know where they stand.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned but there is a good chance that Dragon Blaster skeletor is one of them.

    Could be...

    It would make sense since Higuchi's figure and the final mini-comic figure both share a relationship with Skeletor. (according to rumors on the net).

    This is not insider information: I'm fairly certain Terry Higuchi's figure will be the son of Skeletor. I mean...he was mentioned in Battleground Evil-Lyn's bio and is an ENTIRELY new character...unless they make an NA character their son or something.

    I really think Terry's character is the son of Skeletor though.
