Thanks for all the feedback guys!

He's basic and when you talk about MOTU with someone nobody ever says scareglow.

Acolyte - LOL! I love the way your brain works... Im not gonna give you any more clues...

As for Teela and her Cobra Armor, I think overall, broad appeal wise, shes a little bit more iconic without it... but I get hard-core classic fans feel the opposite - It's how she was first represented in the comics, the toy, etc... but I think we have something in mind that will HOPEFULLY make lots of people happy, but you never know...

KaraFan - Never enough She-Ra, check And totally disagree about Scare Glow. I think he's become one of the more popular characters in the MOTU universe because of his crazy awesome visual appeal and rarity of the original vintage figure. He's popular... Mondo even did great with their 1:6 scale figure and they didnt have a lot of "the core" characters out before him. He also appeared in Origins Wave 2 and has been one of the more sought after figures whenever he comes out... he popular...

grphyx1 - Haha I totally agree on the "...do more unique characters!" and then you hear "...you didnt do all the popular characters!" battle... it's always there, but I get it.

Mister H - We'll definitely have to eventually do a take on him. He's not my favorite, but people love him and he could be really cool to do.

I hope you're right cause if this ruins my chances of another She-ra or even a Catra, Shadow Weaver, Scoripa....I'm done. I've been down this road before.

Big thanks to Dave Igo for interacting - it’s all very exciting and appreciated!

Basically the only thing I collect are the MOTU statues so it’s great to hear of anything in the works. I have all the Sideshow MOTU, the Tweeterhead busts, a couple of the old NECA statues and the PCS He-Man and Battle Cat set. I’ve been making space for Hordak recently. Space will be an issue soon but for these I’ll make room ������

I'll always remember Scareglow as the character that turned Mattell against mike young productions because they used him in a comic when they werent supposed to. I'll have to look up the details of the story, as its vague.

As for Tri-Klops, in the OG 80's toon, I echo Ego's sentiment that he wasnt my favorite. But in the 200x series, they really opened him up to having a personality and purpose. He was just more than a lackey. He really didnt care about Skeletors mission or Evil-Lyn's inevitable betrayal. He just wanted to keep making cool ---- and working on his craft. Supporting those two in their schemes gave him reason to use his toys, and that was enough for him.

I think the 200x series doesnt get enough credit for really diving into and exploring the lore and motivations for a lot of these characters.

It wasn‘t Mike Young Productions (the 200X Cartoon creators) who used Scareglow without permission, but MV Creations - this was the label of the 200X comics. The problem was that at this time Scareglow wasn‘t introduced as 200X character before. MV Creations was eager to get their story out for Halloween 2003 but didn’t get feedback from Mattel on time. So they just printed and published it and after that they weren‘t allowed to use new characters at all - just the ones who were used in the cartoon before.
