    motuc gigantisaur?

    I was watching my 1987 mattel catalog where the giant gigantisaur was showed to all of us. Finally it never was produced, like he-ro, eldor or the evil horde robot.

    Well, perhaps now mattel could be produce this awesome masterpiece into motuc line. The 4H love the creatures and playsets (according to toyfare mag) and if all of us support the line... THE REAL GIANT MONSTER COULD BE PRODUCED!!

    What do you think guys? you like it? you want this creature into the new line?

    A behemoth of that size would cost half a fortune and need a REALLY successful line to be profitable, even if it was in scale of the vintage line instead of the MotU Classics.
    Nonetheless, I'd like to see Mattel produce him (along with He-Ro, Eldor and the Gyrattacker) as part of a new Commemorative Edition.

    It`s very cost innefficient, to have to pay for shipping on something like that. Why does everyone want to complicate things? Just keep it simple like it`s supposed to be.

    I would love for it to happen but if they are reluctant to make Tytus and Megator they wont make that behemoth.

    Reading the toyfare mag, 4H crew have got in mind the two Giants. They love them and I´m near sure they finally will make it for MOTUC line. So all is possible and if all go well and our support buying the line is good, the Gigantisaur will see the ray of light.

    Anyway, the Gigantisaur could be produce in parts like a "build-a-figure". Thats a good idea, what do you think?

    I don't know why but that Horde Robot looks like it belongs to Mego's Micronauts more than MOTU

    How much would you pay for a modern Gigantisaur? THE standard of MOTU rediculousness

    Oh boy, I have long pondered how much this would cost if made today. To me, this beast rivals the GI Joe Aircraft carrier as the potential crown jewel of any mans collection, that is if it were made (although truth be told, NOTHING beats the FLAGG). With Granymyr setting a new single item price point at $80, and people apparently digesting that pretty well, I wonder how high the community would go for arguably the largest scale MOTU item. Personally speaking, I would do $200 without even blinking an eye. And I think it COULD be done for around that price, considering that the original was mostly hollow, and rigid. Even if they amped up the articulation and sculpting, I think it could still be done for $200-250. Am I way off? I think what he really needed was a cool saddle that could carry like 4-6 Masters. I have always love the absurdity of MOTU, and this guy could rank in the top 5 easily of absurd/rediculous characters/concepts. I always get sad when I see pics of Gigantisaur on the internet, and the fact he was never made. Who wouldnt want a beast a small child could ride?

    Also, dont ring in with "I would rather have a Castle Greyskull" routine. That has become the standard response for big ticket concepts...

    I am still reeling from the fact... I can't believe Granamyr was scaled down 20% for cost...CHEAP FANS! LOL just kidding

    I just want to see more tech on the Gigantisaur first. a Brontosaurus with a door on it's sternum can't be all he has. I want this thing to STEP on King Hssss and the Tyrantisaurus Rex.

    What a cool dio piece:

    -Peering over Castle Grayskull
    -get in a headlock my Megator

    So much more!

    That said: $200-$300...and it comes with my Create-a-Character ...or Sharella.

    I would say 150.00. About double the cost of granny, so hopefully double the size. It can be partly roto as well of that makes it bigger.

    If they do it I will buy it. I do not know what price-tag a Gigantisaurus would have but I would buy 1 just because it is so ridiculously BIG.
    So let's say Granamyr is 80 USD. Gigantisaurus might be 200 USD, maybe?

    This beast is not that important for me in my collection. Anything over $100 and I would gladly pass.
