Fearless Photog is a character created for Masters of the Universe toyline. A Heroic Warrior with a robotic camera-shaped head, he has the ability to ‘focus in’ on his enemies and drain their strength. His chest plate displays silhouettes of his defeated enemies.[2]

In 1986, a contest was held for children to send in designs for new characters. Five finalists were chosen, and people were then allowed to vote for their favorite. In the last page of the Spring 1986 issue of The Masters of the Universe Magazine, they announced 12-year-old Nathan Bitner as the winner of the contest with his submission of Fearless Photog.[3] Nathan was awarded a scholarship for 100,000 dollars, plus a five-day trip to Disneyland.[4]

Despite the contest's premise, however, Fearless Photog never actually went into production. While claiming they no longer have the rights to produce an action figure of this character, Mattel gave it a small nod in 2011 on the bio of its Masters of the Universe Classics Captain Glenn figure.

At San Diego Comic-Con International 2011, Mattel later revealed that Fearless Photog would finally receive a figure, as the first entry in their six-figure Masters of the Universe Classics 30th Anniversary series.[5]
