I was surprised to hear this guy was controversial. He just looks insanely cool in person. I wanted him in the 200X days so bad. To be honest, I hadn't really thought about him much in MOTUC, but I think he's a nice choice overall and will look great with the collection.
Okay, seeing some of the screencaps from the toon, I have to say I'm glad they didn't go that big with BL. I'd forgotten just how massive the creature was, to the point of being almost comically large (kind of like the Hulk in the first theatrical film). KG looks like a little kid riding atop him, really, and I don't think that would have worked well in plastic.
I am wondering if KG is going to wind up hovering over the seat in the final version as in the photos I've seen with him mounted up (it would take some major redesign on the front of the saddle to accommodate his long loincloth from the looks of things).
