    NO He-man axe (or repaint it at least)
    spare harness with no cloak attached
    the castle grayskull axe would be an AMAZING addition (he had to use something before he was given the sword of He, and I hate the idea he used the same axe He-man used. It just implies He-Man is cosplaying his great great grandfather...)
    I agree with everything you said

    King Grayskull will most likely be released in 2010,
    because He-Man is set for November and Skeletor for December.

    I'd love to see a few changes in the accessories as well.
    But as long as King Grayskull will be a regulair version I'm happy.
    I'd hate to see a battle damaged variant which was mentioned before.

    I just hope that in the month that King Grayskull will be re-released, we won´t be getting any bonus figure, 3 figures is a lot of money at the same time

    I'm thrilled to hear Grayskull will be re-released. I just started collecting these figures and paying $150+ for him is pretty crazy.

    that would be cool as I dont want to open up my drawbridge to take a look at him and make wear to the box.. so took lots of photos instead

    Personally, when they do re-release KG I would like him to be either in his bronze statue form or in his ghostly spirit form. I think he looks too much like He-Man to effectively be a separate character. That way he can be immortalized in his failed mission to rid evil from Eternia.

    Quoting TG regarding differences between the SDCC King Grayskull and the Re-Issue:

    He-Man: Red lightened around eyes, shoulders corrected, gloss reduced.

    Skeletor: Right hand corrected, a few minor tweaks to the face deco, Demo-Man added to the bio. (now that it cleared copyright, that is what kept it off the card in the first place)

    Hopefully most figures won't need any corrections and the only change will be the addition of the "The Original" burst.

    We will re-release King Grayskull down the road, but not in the SDCC package and likely with some small changes (such as making his head removable and updating some decos or accessories) as well as adding a new bio so he can have a single card release and blend with the rest of the line.

    As nice as Grayskull's packaging was I'd be perfectly fine if he came in the standard packaging. Dude's getting opened up either way.

    I can't wait for them to re-release Grayskull. I have 2, but I fear for the ankles on the one I opened. Even if that wasn't the case, he looks great, and is a must have for anyone's MOTUC collection. Everyone should get a second chance to own him, regardless of his SDCC status. Honestly, I think he will be better the second time around as they do some tweaking to the mold and accessories.

    Hopefully the re-release will be March or April.

    Since there is a bonus figure or re-release scheduled for every month up until March (Not counting Wun-Dar) I think that March or April would make the most sense.

    Either way I am eagerly awaiting his re-release as I too cannot justify $100+ for the SDCC version right now.

    I am very curious as to what the re-release production quantities are going to be? If they plan to have enough to keep these available for longer than an hour or so that would be great.

    Hopefully there will be enough to stick around for a few weeks or months even for some of the new folks jumping into the line recently.

    If I miss out on the re-releases then I will be campaining for the re-re-releases

    So excited to know King Grayskull is coming soon.

    I am also looking forward to getting the fixed He-Man. If he was fixed from the beginning then I would've been collecting this line from the beginning. It was the red eyes that stopped me

    Its not MOTU without He-Man and Skeletor

    Yeah, I definitely want one and I'll go for the new packaging. I got my statue variant that was signed for a steal off of Ebay. I just want one that's loose. This would be the first MOTUC figure I buy singularly.

    King Grayskull re-issue

    Hey guys. As you all know, King Grayskull will eventually (I'm waiting with baited breath) be re-released. Do you think they'll re-issue the Bronze variant of Grayskull? Do you think it'll be released as a bonus??

    I really hope so. I don't want to be jipped on it. I would actually buy 2 of them so I could display one on a nice bronze base to look very statuesque.

    The bronze is one of the very very few things that I don't think should be re-released...

    No I wouldn`t want the bronze version re released, after bronze KG was released there was a poll where fans voted on no more chase variants and i still feel this way

    I asked about that in WTFWTK 2.24 and it was chosen to be answered.

    So whenever WTFWTK 2.24 comes out we'll get an answer

    Cool. I hope we get a "real" answer.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I want a KG but I really don't want a Bronze version

    I think the Bronze version should be kept as the SDCC only version

    I Agree that was kind of the excitement of the SDCC. Besides I have one already I wouldn't mind a regular one!

    I know that I'd prefer both versions of him to be re-released. I imagine that for some collectors, the idea of having a bronze version means you would have one cool artifact lurking around a Castle Grayskull interior...!

    I want both version re-released. Since the voice of the people cried for "no more chase varients!" Let's make it official then. Release the bronze statue GS as a bonus figure and take away the chase from the varient.

    Good man! I expect the answer will be no release on the bronze version. Though, I completely disagree if that is the case!
