$80.00! This line is getting out of control.

Think of it as two Wind Raiders. You wouldn't have a problem with two Wind Raiders would you?
I imagine Granamyr is going to be sculpted so that his big fat body is just going to be in a permanent pot-bellied sitting position. I expect only the neck/head and arms/hands to be movable. That said, for $80 (and him being my least-desired character EVER- next to any Widget, of course), I expect him to be larger than Tytus/Megator, and for him to either come with some sort of diorama setting or many treasure-like accessories to scatter around him.
Besides the filmation rights being aquired and possible playsets answer
this is the best darned announcement from the whole sdcc mattel
reveals! Ive been waiting close to 30 years for this big boy and if he comes in green Ill have that one too! Hes really one of the best characters in MOTU.
Granamyr has been a long time coming....... I don't know how they do it, but Mattel continues to improve year after year with the MOTUC line.
I know that we, the fan, have a lot to do with their success; but I never imagined that, when I was purchasing King Grayskull back in 2008, I would be given the news that Granamyr - yes, Granamyr would be in our hands in 2012....
I know I sound a little dramatic, but this toy will represent a huge part of my childhood memories in awesome figure form! Granamyr will always be one of my most beloved MOTU characters.
Thank you Mattel! :)
I'm excited for this. For $80, he should be huge! I'm glad that he's red - the way that I voted at SDCC.
For $80, he'd better be as massive and as impressive at the AT-AT which stood around 2' tall and had amazing articulation (for a vehicle) and added features from previous versions. :hmeek:
If it's another cheapo like Tytus (who I still don't have but read many of the rotocast complaints) people will (rightfully) howl for blood.
I'm fine with Granamyr's color, Filmation red is much better than Minicomic green. But if he'll be that expensive indeed, I hope he'll be really huge and won't be as little moveable as Tytus.
Don't you see? It's a test. If he sells well, there will be a Castle Grayskull in 2013! :hmlol:
I am actually glad it's not included as part of the sub. $80 is a HUGE price tag and if they coupled that with a monthly figure or two I would be crying.
I would, however, hope they make enough of him so he doesn't sell out in 10 minutes.
Me, I'm thrilled to get the arrogant old dragon. I have NO idea where I would be able to put him, but I can't pass on him.
if he's rotocast, which we all suspect, I hope they do him more like Gygor/shadow beast in terms of articulation. I want him to be able to look down for sure!!
For that high price, I'm guessing he'll come with spell books, treasure and other assorted stuff. Given Mattels latest trend for big guys, Im guessing he'll come with a cardboard diorama of his lair to sit in front of
1. Anyone know where to get a larger photo of the vote sign for
Granamyr at SDCC with artwork of his head? Im talking about the one where it says vote for his color and it shows his head only.
2. Anyone want Granamyr's son like me? I would like to see him made but I cant find a photo of him online nor do I remember his name.
I really wish green had won. Filmation's Granymyr was far less impressive to me with his very basic look, although I'm sure the Classics version will surpass it with great shading and sculpting. Still, the green mini comic version is, in my opinion (!), much niftier. Oh well, the toon version is good too.
They should just make him a color-changing toy! ;)
It's a good thing I wasn't at SDCC since I'm not sure which color I would have voted on. The green looked good in the mini-comic & is my favorite color, but red dragons seem more iconic(I always think of the cover art for Dungeons & Dragons). I do hope he looks more like the Filmation design though. The mini-comic version always looked to me more like an old man with scales than an imposing ancient dragon.
Where were we supposed to vote!?! It wasn't mentioned anywhere and I didn't even know about this poll until the "winning" vote was announced! Was the color "election" were only for the SDCC attendees? :hmconf:
And I wan't to vote green. :hmsad:
this line is amazing..I am so happy to be a motu fan right now. Granamyr was never on my want list but after seeing the mini comic clip of him I can't wait. I will definately be picking up one for sure and maybe a second...depending on the look mib.
Just dropping a couple of good-looking custom pics here, for reference. THIS is the sort of Granamyr I want to see!
