    Friggin' AWESOME. I mean, I was already looking forward to this guy, but now I'm GEEKED. The He-Man head on there looks way better than I thought it would as a sort of 200X He-Man LBC. I'm almost wondering if I should get a second for parts! The colors on this one just pop so much more than on the original. I'm not completely sold on the cape, but it's far from bothering me. On top of that, it comes off, which is the best part! Top it all off with the 200X sword and this release is just perfect. I love it.

    Gahh! The creepy Action Dan figure returns! The horror! The horror!

    But in other news, the review was cool...

    The fun starts at 8:45, 200X fans!

    Thanks for doing that Dan!

    Just one question...is King Grayskull darker skinned this time? Is his skin the same color as He-Man's? It looks like it on the video.

    Thanks for the review Dan. Surprised you didn't mention that the half-swords are a NEW mold that allows them to stay together better (mentioned in Fwoosh review).

    Also, try using Adam's head for a better body to head color match.

    Another great review, Dan. I don't care much for the Grayskull character, but the paint job alone on this figure makes me want it. I love the sword and the orb, and I really like the cape's color scheme. Plus, the Powers of Grayskull sticker is really awesome. I think this figure may be more popular than the Grizzlor figure.

    I know you have that figure lying around somewhere in your house. And I bet it comes to life at night putting wrestling moves and choke holds on all your other figures all the while having that unnerving grin of his. Spooky!

    Totally awesome figure!
    Looking at the side by side comparison of v1 vs. v2,
    only the cape of v1 looks nicer, but for the rest v2
    is so much cooler in every way!
    I'll just have to get another King Grayskull v2 to repaint the red cape!
    So many possibilities! I can't wait for this figure!

    Great review as always PD!
    I am totally going for him, the only actual thing that i'm not really a fan is the red of the cape. IMO it looks better painted brown.
    Did anyone noticed the conections on the swords halves?
    They actually look better than the ones used until this day. Probably they unite both of them better than te original ones. Did you checked it Dan?

    I really don't like the flocking on the top of the cape, but otherwise I think the fig looks great!

    Great review, thanks Dan. Awesome figure.
    A few things worth pointing out: my Grayskull's head does turn. I was able to do it after forcing it just a little. When doing so, the armor shifts somewhat, and the cape pops off easily on whatever side the hair turns. Also, the parts where the cape plugs in at the shoulders are not very good at all, and they aren't what's keeping the cape on--it's a plug on the cape that goes into his back, along with the glue. So the new one has a new cape.

    Great review and cool fig! It doesn't feel like I'm buying a repeat figure, for one. Plus, he can be appropriately arranged with my other carded Masters.

    I feel like grabbing a pack of jet-puffed marshmallows now.

    Wow! I wasn't very excited about the new KG until seeing this! Now I know I must have him!
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    Here's a look at the new Power Sword halves. It does fit together WAY better than before!

    Top notch review, Dan!

    Although I'm generally not 200x's biggest fan, I love the whole King Grayskull thing. It has the more barbarian feel that I wish we'd had in 200x.

    When you displayed the 200x-style sword with KG, I thought "err.. no, that just looks wrong, too conflicting styles". But then, with the whole 200x He-Man option... wowza.

    Also, I'd never thought of the cape as "Christmas-y", but now Dan's said it, it'll be in my head every time I look at KG 2.0.

    (And I won't be cheeky enough to pimp the Bronze original release King Grayskull I'm selling here!! )
