    I posted, but didn't make a new thread about it. phantom1592 reports buying one at 7:45, so when I randomly checked at 7:46 is the the actually sell out time.

    I didn't think he would last this long (relatively speaking, of course).

    He'll probably be reissued again if and when we get Battle Lion.

    Imagine my shock when I got out of work and the weapons pack, and Grayskull were still available.

    I actually thought he was going to go much faster, but it is nice to see that he lasted awhile. If I would have known that he would not be sold out in minutes, I wouldnt have taken an hour off of work at 11am central, rescheduled patients, only to sit and stare at the WSOD for over an hour. What a waste of time and precious nerves!!!

    I got my two ordered. One is meant to be used in repairing my original version's ankles.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Since he was probably produced with the highest numbers to date and is a repainted "re-issue" his selling period is fantastic.

    Matty.com Grizzlor is a smaller run because of subscriptions.

    I'm happy I got two of him. It was a last minute decision on my part, but he's too darn awesome and good looking to only get one. I can also 200X He-Man the second one. I just love me some King Grayskull!

    I think he'll be back. But, maybe as a A-list variant in Snake or Horde Armor.

    I got my 3 after a painful morning of WSOD, so that is cool.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    This is the first MOTUC figure that I missed. Got stuck at work and couldn't get home in time to place an order. Oh well.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Around a year ago I almost bought a King Grayskull v.1 for $100,
    but I couldn't justify to spend that much on a figure that I would take out of the package.
    Along with the quality control issues (especially broken ankles) I decided to let it go. The box is nice, especially the electronics, but it's the figure that really counts for me because I'm first and foremost a loose action figure collector.

    After seeing comparison pictures, I like this re-issue; King Grayskull v.2 a lot better than the original King Grayskull. His face, the silver paint, the ability to remove the armor and head... so much awesomeness!

    I ordered 3 KG's and my plans with them are;
    - Repaint a cape in brown with an off white cowl (after deflocking) similar to v.1

    - Use one to custom make a 200X He-Man (saving the cape as is to have the ability to have an original v.2 as produced when using it on the 1st custom)

    - Repainting one fully to make it into a gold or maybe bronze statue for display inside Castle Grayskull (I'm going to use the weapon pak #1 weapons for this custom)
    MY MOTUC WANTS: Gwildor, Rotar, Mermista, Angella, Peekablue, Spinerella, Perfuma, Master Sebrian, Sagitar, Tuskador, Darius, Kayo, Vizar, Nocturna, Spinwit, Artilla, Saurod, Ninjor, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Twistoid, Hunga the Harpy, Dragstor, Vultak, Multi-Bot, Blast-Attak, Tung Lashor, Sssqueeeze, Lizorr, Hoove, Critta, Quakke, Butthead, Staghorn

    Question: if he is re-released will it say "the original" on it because this deco is not truly the original. Just saaying......

    Hardly matters, does it? The sticker is there to differentiate re-releases from their first release packaging. King Grayskull is in totally different packaging this time.

    I honestly thought he'd go quicker, but glad to be finally getting a KG!
    Tweet Me!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!
