Sketch Card of Day- The Mighty Spector!

The Mighty Spector by Taylor Lymbery
Today's deviation is The Mighty Spector! I think that this has to be one of the most controversial characters to come out as f here recent. For Mattel's Masters of the Universe 30th anniversary, they are making characters from past contest and, fan designs, sculptor designs, comic book writers designs, and Scott "Toy Guru" Neitlich, which is The Mighty Spector. I just want to get my own personal feelings out of the way before I continue any further. I really don't like the design, but I think he's an ok character having read the bio. For me, this character stands out like a sore thumb. A lot of MOTU fans complained about his mask mimicking Dead Pool from Marvel Comics. That doesn't bother me too much. What bothers me is the Spade on his armor. I just don't get it. Is he an ace in the hole? Does he play poker? Is it a military thing? I just don't get it. Other than that, he's ok in my opinion. It does make me wonder what all the fans are hating about, though. I wonder if it has anything to do with this being Scott Neitlich's design... You can also see this sketch card here.

Just a quick update: I did go ahead and purchase a table for the Fan Days Convention in October. So I will be there (given that I don't have another mishap).
Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Husband and wife, Brynna and Jeff, compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:

Now, I'm opening commissions for 2.5" X 3.5" sketch cards. They are $10 + shipping and handling which will be $6 in the continental United States of America. I'll have to get a quote for any territories outside of that. I will also open up my 7" X 10.5" colored page line drawings for commissions. Same price as the sketch cards, but I'll have to check on the shipping (due to the difference in size). If you want to see what I mean by colored sheet drawing, go here. If you want a sketch card, send me an e-mail to Name your character and we will go from there. I take paypal.
