    Colour of Green Granamyr (Power Con Exclusive)

    Hi,

    i'm glad to finally get a green Granamyr. Here's what we get:

    But is it possible to change his colour so that he more matches the one shown in the Mini Comic (like this fantastic Custom)??

    I asked Val about the paintmaster and he suggested,to bring it into discussion.....so, what do you think??

    I think if they're going to make a mini comic accurate Granamyr, they need to colour match it to the original. I choose option B.

    I agree it should match the mini comic. I do enjoy that bright green a lot though. That said, accuracy is the name of the game for this one so I'd say closer to the mini comic.

    I like the bright green one. The mini-comic colours are awful.

    Huh. I didn't realize the prototype color was so inaccurate lol.
    I vote for something closer to the mini-comic colors. If not matching exactly, then at least a paint job with more of the right hues.

    O wow, I also didn't realize mini-comic Granamyr is wingless!

    I think it's all about the way your minicomics are printed.
    My vintage minicomic has more green like this:



    The protoype is a bit more punchy, but I feel that's the only main difference. And I like what the 4H did a lot. But still interested to hear what you all think about his colors.

    I don't have my mini-comics handy but I always remembered him as that exact lime green color, I've never even seen him in the dull pastel yellow from the OP's image. So personally I really like the 4H paint-master as is and hope it remains unchanged, extra punch and all.

    I wouldn't mind of they toned down the green a little. And maybe they even should. But I prefer a deeper green to that really dull, puke-looking green. Way too dull.

    Since when has mattel or the 4H cared about being accurate? The funny thing is if motu were a property like dc or marvel they have to be faithful to the material but with mattels lax attitude towards the motuc line they've allowed the 4H to take liberties. Look at perfuma, the inaccurate toy details crammed into the POP gals(Angellas belt, mermistas waist, sweet bees choker and belt, entraptas deco, the black torso on Dragstor, the green on an man at arms, beastman dull orange, jitsu head, rio blast head and yes granamyr is waaaaay too green. They need to take it down a notch but I doubt it

    I don't know; I think the mini-comic version looks sickly with that color. Still, that could also just be cave lighting.

    Nonetheless, I don't really mind either way.

    Ugh, he looks like a giant mound of snot in that scan. No thank you.

    Then again, I hardly have a horse in this race, as I think red is an inherently superior color for dragons anyway.

    Yay another thread about colors needing changed! The colors the 4H chose look fine. If it comes this way or altered it will be an ok figure.

    eh I can see the argument for toning him down a little, he is quite bright - but as long as he isn't Demo-Man bright he shouldn't be a problem.

    Option A or 1, the bright green one. A supernatural bright green aura looks cool, would make me crap my pants on first sight.

    I like what they have done with him. Not a fan of that vomit green color.

    I think the green is fine. His eyes could be a little lighter, though.

    Happy with the green but hoping green Granamyr comes with the purple warts on his tail!

    I didn't really notice the difference until looking at the mini again, and I do think it needs to be toned down a bit from the prototype. Somewhere in between the custom shown above and the colors on the proto. I liked how Granamyr's age was shown in the mini-comic green, as if he was once the vibrant green of the proto but a couple thousand years has worn away some of the brighter colors.

    I think the brighter, richer green fits the line better than a more muted yellowy green like in the custom of the OP. All the actual figure needs to make him more comic accurate is to remove his wings when you get him IMO.
