    i was just going to post this.

    yeah i understand the reason behind it. i hope he is 30 not 40.

    i really need to see pics of him next to BC though to get a good comparison of size. i am a LITTLE bummed he doesn't have the same arm artic. as the regular figs. i sure HOPE he doesn't have a T crotch or worse a V crotch.

    I'll buy him anyway but those are my only concerns and other than that he still looks AWESOME!!

    bring on Megator!
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    And, on Matty's website, they have confirmed he will be $40.

    Tytus™ (May Figure) — 12” figure comes with capture claw, and will retail for $40.00 due to large size

    Mattel don't get greedy!

    $40 for Tytus with less articulation after Battle Cat are quite expensive for my taste.
    MOTUC needs:Tung Lashor, Rio-Blast and rest of the Hordes!

    $30 I would def. buy him... $40.. really not sure, leaning to not. Matty, if u combine shipping or give subscribers $10 off, then I will purchase him... along with many others I'm sure. But if not, there is no financial way I can justify purchasing him. The $8 off of BC really helps with shipping costs... Tytus' shipping is going to be high, so you are looking at over $50 for this guy, plus the regular figure that month, that's an easy $80 on 2 figures!!! A lil too high for my tastes.

    It is very expensive to do figures this big. That is why Tytus is a roto mold figure. Yes, we had to reduce the articulation a bit from a standard MOTUC figure, but really, this was our only option to keep the price reasonable. A fully articulated Tytus would have cost closer to $100.00!

    Even though I've never heard of Tytus, I really am sort of growing to really like this guy. So IF and when he becomes for sale I think I am going to get him.

    I love him and prefer that a more cost efficient route was considered and chosen by Mattel on this one (it helps make buying everything else a little less damaging to the finances). IMO he certainly looks FAR from cheap.

    From "ActionFigurePics.com:

    Tytus is the next one in the pipeline, and he’ll be a rotocast figure. As such, he’s got fewer points of articulation than the standard MOTUC figures, but I don’t think people will mind. His arms lack bicep swivels, and the shoulders have the same movement as regular ball jointed shoulders, but just not as much range. His crotch is a t-swivel vs. ball-jointed.

    I don't see a problem. The figure looks great and thanks for clearing that up.

    I look at it this way: less joints equals less potential for quality control issues. Plus I would not have shelled out $100 for a 12" figure.

    How can the 12 inch Ghostbusters and Zod be fully articulated at $60?

    I'm fine with the articulation on Tytus. Being "hollow" and less articulated, I would have thought he'd be the same price as the massive, articulated, non-hollow Battle Cat.

    I think $40 is a good price, I was thinking he was going to be a lot more. The loss of articulation is minor and does not bother me.

    Also we can't compare tytus to Zod or Ghostbuster 12" figures becuase those have bodies that are probably like a generic doll body with limited sculpting.

    Why does everyone keep saying that there is a typo in the Tytus bio? It states:

    After He-Ro’s death he used his great strength to build King Grayskull a mighty fortress…
    Which is correct. He built a mighty fortress for King Grayskull. It is not implied or punctuated, at least in the transcripts, that "King Grayskull" is the name of the fortress. It is who the fortress is being built for.

    Anyway…

    Tytus is going to be awesome. I can't wait.

    That's because those figures have cloth covering a puny, simple body. MOTUC figures need fully sculpted bodies and a bigger mold.

    I absolutely love him!!! I can't wait to add him to my collection! He makes me die even more to get an Eldor, Megator, and human form Sharella with a bow.

    I'm more bothered by the height than the limited articulation. I would've been willing to pay $60 for an 18 inch Tytus. He's supposed to be 3 times the size of He-Man.

    I like that he's realistically big this time around. A 17" giant compared to a 5" figure, in hindsight, was probably a misstep for the Powers of Grayskull line. It was ambitous, it was over-the-top... but it was just not necessary.

    I'm much happier with Tytus being twice the size of the regular figures, as the largest humans are typically 8-9 feet tall, a giant standing 12 feet high is still "fantasy", but not so big that he can't interact with the other heroes.

    Loving Tytus. But one thing that concerns me, is all the large scale figures announced have been heroes. I know the good guys are lacking in normal 6inch, but no bad guys in large scale ? hmmm....

    I just feel that a giant should be, well, giant. And realism has no place in MOTU.

    The Marvel Legends Giant Man, Sentinels and Galactus figures are way bigger than 12", and they fit in perfectly with the 6" figures.

    On the 200X cartoon we saw giants interacting well with the other characters even at their massive size. And if they ever reuse Tytus' mold to make toys of those guys they will be pitifully small compared to their cartoon appearances.

    I'm cool with $40 as long as we get Megator and the A,B,C Giants from MYP.
