Folks who preordered the castle got to vote for the 10 characters that will appear on the box art.

For those of you who got to vote, who did you choose?

Darkseid and Thundarr the Barbarian... I won't buy it unless those two are on the box.

Cool topic. I'm interested to see what other people want.

I didn't preorder and don't get a vote, but you can bet Faker would be my number-1 choice.

I honestly don't even remember anymore. I know I voted for He-Man and Skeletor for sure. Beyond that, I guess it really wasn't that important to me.

I voted for:

He-Man
Man-At-Arms
Teela
Fisto
Battle Cat
Moss Man
Skeletor
Evil-Lyn
Beast Man
Tri-Klops

Moss Man and Trap Jaw barely missed the cut.

I think a vote on He-Man and Skeletor would be a wasted vote... I mean, how can they NOT put them on the box, lol.. but then again, it would be funny if a lot of people think like me, don't vote for them and Mattel is like.. Okay.. lets put Cy-Chop and The Mighty Spector on there.

Cy-Chop maybe. I love that figure. But so many fans are resentful of Nietlich's insertion of Spector into the line that the only way he'd be on the box is if he were hanging dead from the top of the castle.

If the Mighty Spector ends up on the box in any way, I will find a way to go back in time, go to Connecticut and find the Neitlich household, and pull a T-800. @termibart@

Hasn't he given you enough reasons? Why wait?

Maybe I am horribly out of the loop, but why does everyone hate Spector so much? I like his design.

Fans are resentful toward Brand Manager Scott Neitlich (Toy Guru) for including his own crappy out of place character in the 30th Anniversary series. Not to mention one of the heads in the Palace Guard 2 pack being his likeness. Or his crappy fan fiction bios. Or his constant condescending attitude. Or his flip flopping on promises. Or his arrogance. Or his desire to be worshipped like a hero. I could go on forever. Outside of the manufactured positive attitude toward him at the .Org most fans seem to dislike him pretty strongly.

It's good that someone does. Most people said it reminded them of Deadpool with less imagination.

I think it totally looks like a kid designed it. And they didn't really try to improve it any, which was probably Neitlich's preference.

Scott Neitlich is the embodiment of ego regarding toy managment. He constantly puts his ideas over to the detriment of the line.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Spector was on the box in some way. Then the little weasel would say Spector won out in the vote or some other completely predicatable and baseless lie.

I submitted a new character called S*P*A*R*K*S (Sub-evil Parcel Accumulating Robotic Keeper Synthoid) which was an evil android that lived down by the Eternian Digital River and would hold the planet's shipped packages for 7-10 business days.

I wonder why it was rejected?

Yep. Copyright infringement. Mattel's lawyers will be in contact. @hmmm@

Well, regardless of the vote... I think in the end, Mattel will just put whatever characters they want on the box. More than likely characters they are trying to promote or sell. The vote was just a way to "involve" the fans in the line. And I can almost guaranty the Wind Raider will be very prominent on the box art for obvious reasons.

Yeah lol, a massive Wind Raider piloted by Spector with a sign saying "Still available at Matty.com". The Castle would be a tiny blip in the corner. @loll@
