    Which celebrity faces would you like the MOTUC characters to be based on?

    After people saying Icarius/Flipshot looked a lot like Val Kilmer, I got to thinking... Even though Mattel can't actually do it for legal reasons, would it be a fun idea to discuss whether any other celebrities faces may be suitable for certain characters?

    Especially if the celebrity has something in common with the MOTUC character..


    EG: Katy Perry had a Peacock costume for one of her concerts, so they could base Peekablue's face on her,

    Huntara was kind of Filmation's homage to Grace Jones, so her face would work for Huntara...


    Anybody think of any more?

    I was disappointed by the Val Kilmer head on Flipshot because that character always had shaggy hair and seemed younger. Save a makeover like that for Tuskador or Hydron as they looked goofy without their helmets IMO. Otherwise if they can make figures look as much like the toys or the cartoon, I'd prefer that more than surprise celebrity guest shots. Huntara is easy though, she was already modeled to look like Jones.

    I want a Dolph Lundgren sculpt head complete with mullet for Laser Power He-Man. And I would love a Conan/Schwarzenegger head for Wun-Dar.

    This would be the ONLY case where I would find this kind of thing acceptable and only because the original design of Huntara was a tribute to the likeness. I want MOTU characters to have unique faces. I realize that sometimes there is no denying a resemblence to a real person, but I do NOT want it done on purpose.

    Back when the Marvel Legends line was with Toy Biz, a lot of the sculptors patterned character faces off a real people and it is still very distracting. I don't have Angel from the X-men, I have Brad Pitt in Angel's costume.

    None? I don't have any interest in seeing any figures based off of celebrities.

    I get sick of celebrities being shoved down my throat by the media the way it is without them being in MOTUC. I guess Eternia does have some celebrities though..Like the Royal Family, Man-E-Faces, and you KNOW He-Man & Skeletor always has the Eternian press on their toes!

    I'm tired of it myself, nothing anywhere is celebrity free anymore, and even somehow non celebrities are celebrities. There is nothing on TV anymore unless you like mindless reality shows & copies of other shows that have been on for a while, and even the ones on those shows have celebrities made of them....since when do stars and celebs come from the History Channel? All you have to do anymore is make a sex tape or go on Youtube or be on TV for 5 seconds, and you're a celebrity now. An easy pass for my for MOTUC being celebrity infiltrated, no thanks.

    Look at Dancing With The Stars....since when were stars newscasters, sports annalists, talk show hosts, business CEO's & Astronauts? I certainly don't want a Buzz Aldrin, Kathy Griffith, Kardashian, Steve Wozniack or Tim Tebow MOTUC looking me in the face everytime I look at my collection. There are plenty of other characters to be made that have their own faces and personalities without throwing celebs into it. Hey I like Val Kilmer, Mel Gibson & Tim Allen, but I don't want my MOTUC looking like them.
    Recent.... HATMOTU Beast Man & Evil Seed
    Coming....
    Wanted.... Filmation Mer-Man, Teela & Sorceress
    Considering....
    Needed.... MOTUC Lord Masque

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    Yeah, erm, none thanks!

    Oh wait... no, no, that wouldn't work. So, no, none!

    People I consider worthy of their face immortalised in plastic don't really count as "celebrity" anyway; a Prof. Stephen Hawking action figure somehow wouldn't work so well!

    No one.
    I like my MOTU to look like toys and not some creepy approximation of a real human.

    Yeah me too, I hate watching a cg cartoon movie "making of", and how it's aaaaall about actors while the voice part is about the easiest aspect (not saying is easy, though I doubt is particularly hard, everything else has to be harder, modeling, skinning, rigging, animating, physics calculation for wreckage, fluids etc).

    Buuuut since we have a Batman actor, I want Michael Keaton, he he he.

    This makes a LOT of sense, I hope they do that. I also hope the skin tone resembles that of a normal harness He-man fig, so the head can be used with it.

    A face sculpt I'd also like is one based off the He-man from the power tour, Jack... I forgot his last name, but made a great He-man.

    All this said, no tom Cruise, no angelina Jolie, no johnny Depp, no lady gaga or anything like that.
    When it comes to She-ra Princess of Power characters, FILMATION is the way to go!.

    My sister thinks that Casta looks like Carrie Fisher.

    She's wrong, of course.

    Now, if that weren't a weird Simpsons approximation of Prof. Hawking, I'd buy that in a heartbeat!

    Ron Wesley also has big red hair, I wouldn't say he was perfect for Castaspella.

    None. Please.

    I mean, borrowing a nose or something would be okay, just no total overall face-copying.
    Where's the rest of the Vintage New Adventures?

    Seconded. The only time I like seeing celebrity faces on action figures, is when they are based on the live-action series or movies. "Mark Hammil" Prince Adam's face wasn't well received from my recollection.

    I'm gonna say no thank you too. Val Kilmer is enough---I would like to get a cartoon accurate head for flipshot someday too.
