    King Grayskull - Who Got 1 Of Each: Bronze & Regular

    i got one of each, i guess i just got lucky, cause they say bronze is randomly packed with King Grayskull. i wonder what the ratio is. anyone else got lucky in purchasing 2 and got a bronze also?

    How did you do to get two of them?
    I thought it was only 1 per person...
    Did a friend give one to you?

    Mattel changed the rules various times.

    I dont know the numbers, but I dont think the statue version is that rare, like they said it would be. Way to many on ebay, and fans getting both by buying only two.

    That's a good thing! I know a lot of people who want the statue version as well, myself included. If there are more of them, they will be easier and cheaper to acquire. If they are not that rare, I say thank you Mattel

    I heard a ratio of 1:50 is bronze. I at first believed it but now I'm just not sure. I'm thinking it may be 1:30. I tried to count how many of each were on Ebay but it's hard because a lot of the regular King Grayskull auctions had multiple quantities for sale.

    I checked Ebay completed auctions and it looks like only 6 of the variants have been sold and are completed auctions. There is another 7-10 still for sale in current auctions so you're talking about 16-20 that have been sold or are currently for sale. That's not many.

    Some sellers claim that the total run of King Grayskull was 3000 pieces(which I doubt). If it was 1:50, that would be 60 total Variant King Grayskulls. Thats not a lot.

    What do you guys think?

    Can anyone who has the King Grayskull figure confirm that the armor is removable?

    I got 5 total, and opened 2. I got one of each, so that was pretty lucky. ANd, I think the number of KG made is way higher than 3000. Way higher.

    Hey Bezem,

    Are you sure about the head thing? The video from GayComicGeek, that got removed, showed him moving his head but the paint made it hard to move the first time. I'd post the linke but it got removed due to bad language. If you seach youtube for King Grayskull it's there.

    Edit
    Don't take my word for it though!!! I'm trying to load the video again to check. Don't break your Graysull because of me!

    if his head does move, it's a small amount. all i succeeded in doing was making my wrist sore While attempting to turn his head though, his waist spun. That's a plus. His boots too! I want the bronze now to put the statue in the middle of my Castle Grayskull

    I have seen so many people end up with a bronze, that I wouldn't be surprised if his numbers are more like 1:5, or maybe even 1:4 with the regular.
    He's not very rare at all.
    Which is cool, because he's easy to get.
    But also kinda bad because if you really want a regular KG, you may end up with a statue version.

    Haven't gotten mine from my friend yet. Very worried I'll be getting a statue when all I want is the regular KG.

    Same here. I kind of want my friend to open it while he was there to find out, but that takes away from opening the big ol box when it gets here.

    I'm very glad to hear that. I hope to get one of each. As soon as news broke about a statue variant I thought: "Holy crap, he needs to be in Castle Grayskull!"

    I am sure you won't have a problem trading someone for the regular version here in the marketplace if you did get the statue.
