Anybody want to show off CGM army? We know they are out there....
Dekker: I really like him. The elder head is FULL of intense character and grit. Love the eye-patch and the hair. This guy looks like he has seen it all. He looks excellent with the green mace and Orcas Island shield from the weapons pack. Gave the MAA tech mace and younger Dekker head to one of the eagle plate wearing Palace guards. Perfect. This is a striking figure, and I am all for anything new in this line.
King Randor: Such satisfaction... finally here... and he looks AWESOME!!! Though, I still want Captain Randor and MYP Randor... but I'd settle for MYP Randor with an extra Captain Randor helmeted head that could go on the King Randor 1.0... at least it would be sort of like having Captain Randor. His skirt really should have had slits on the sides... that is a Ruben / Mattel design failure. Terry was able to get the slits in for Preternia He-Man. Ruben needs to pay better attention to things like that maybe? I just don't understand how that was missed... it's Eternos Palace Randor... he should be able to sit. We may never get a throne for him, but there are custom thrones that work well... he can't sit in one :( The goblet is great and I like that the spear was cast in "gold" plastic: no paint chipping
Castle Grayskullman: The accessories are really great, and I think the 4H translated the idea into plastic well.
Sad that the 30th line is done... I was a fan of all of them... yes, even Spector. So kill me :sklol:
I got my November figures yesterday and I'm happy! Joints are tight, paint decos are clean, and they all look cool. I can see how some may feel that Eternos Palace Randor looks a bit bland and underwhelming with his lack of articulation but I'm glad to see this Filmation version. I swapped out his head with the vintage version so that he has his golden crown and he looks perfect standing with the queen. The royal family now looks complete!
I wasn't too keen on Dekker when I saw his reveal but he looks better in person to me. His attire stands out and I really like his awesome face sculpt. He's a neat character and a welcome addition to my collection!
Finally, Castle Grayskullman is simply amazing. I can see why he won the contest, he really captures the MOTU look and feel. I could see him as one of those vintage figures that would've been fun to play with. Also, with Castle Grayskull itself now going through, it's nice to know that he'll have a place to defend. The Sorceress won't be so lonely either, heheh!
Overall, another nice month of figures. I look forward to next month's set which will be my last DOS purchase before my 2013 sub kicks in!
I was going to upload an image of CGM with a sword I found that works GREAT with him, but I keep getting a message "that I have exceeded my image qouta" --does anyone know what this means (I have posted plenty of images before but never had an issue :hmshift:) PLEASE HELP! :hmlol:
P.S. the more I look at it--it looks like I need to upgrade my acct to post more pics, if I do the Tier 1 though do I automatically get more pic posting credit, or does that not work until tier 3 (sorry im confused --maybe I had too much turkey today :hmlol:)
Use photobucket for free.
Thanks! just created an account. Here's my pic finally http://i1272.photobucket.com/albums/...Kal/CGM001.jpg
Out of sheer curiosity SCB, from what action figure/toyline is that sword that CGM is holding up in that pic?
Decided to try a red cape inspired by the mini comic where the king of Castle Grayskull is shown to Teela in a vision.
:hmeek:He is AMAZING with that cape!:hmeek:
I agree. That cape is KILLER for CGM!
Wow! It's really a great idea!
Where the cape come from?
Great pics, everyone. Can't get enough of Castle Grayskullman, taking photos of him, and seeing other people's photos of him. Man, I love these two figs. I always liked CG Man, but didn't think I'd like him as much as I do, b/c he's not really a 'real' character. He's more like spell, a one-time entity that appeared in one battle. But he's awesome. Feels and looks vintage.
I had some outdoor pics planned for both, but will have to hold off for better weather. And in Dekker's case, until spring :hmshift:.
CG Man looks great with the reliquary as well. It's almost like his own personalized pez dispenser. Or just something really cool for him to hold.
The 30th line complete. Like or or hate it, here is the full group from a decent minisub. I love the last 4 figures, each more than the last. Draego and Photog I can do without, and may get rid of them. But they do look cool all together.
Young and Old Dekker. The long hair prevents using the back of MAA armor. :hmshift: Palace guard armor works better, but I just removed the back piece for now.
The MYP characters. Don't they look great? (And yes, FANG counts! :hmlol:)
IMO, Dekker is among the best looking of the group. He turned out so perfectly, I can't believe people think he's 'boring' or that lesser MYP characters should have come first. The 4H knocked this one out of the park (well, as usual).
Love "PIMP CUP" Randor
Got mine the day before Thanksgiving!
Just got my sub figures, and am enjoying them. Added some extra palace guard arm armor to Dekker and I think he looks pretty snazzy as a result.
Got mine last week. Could care less about Randor. CastleGrayskull Man was pretty awesome, but I haven't opened him yet.
I opened Dekker, and he is a pretty decent figure. I don't know if it has been mentioned, but I can easily see Dekker's boots on a Seahawk figure, except in black. They look like great swash-buckler boots.
Those might be Eldor's boots as well. I could see Snout Spout's boots go to Sea Hawk.
