    the Official MOTUC Procrustus Thread

    Im starting this because I havent seen this on yet on the boards, but the only other giants that I see coming to MOTUC are the ABC giants, Serpos, and Granymer (Skytree would be a boring figure) Procrustus is a perfect way to bring in the mini comic characters, and he is one of the most popular characters to come from the minicomics. I actually think that he would be a cool collect and connect figure for the subscription holders, like you get 2 subscription figures in one year.

    I like the idea of this character but not the collect and connect. It sort of makes you buy everything if you want just the one character. But I do like his story but think he would be too big a piece to make.

    I would love a Procrustus figure! He's very cool in the mini-comics and holds Eternia up, from the inside!

    I don't think MOTUC will ever go the way of Collect N' Connect unless it hit retail. I think we will probably have to wait to get a proper Procrustus though. I like Tytus a lot and Megator looks awesome, but Procrustis is going to need more articulation with four arms and all. The bare minimum won't cut it with this giant!

    Ball joints in the shoulders would do it for me and I think that that the collect and connect would allow to create the massive figure that Procrustus would need to be. 12 monthly slots would create a massive figure.

    I would dearly love a Procrustus figure. I definitely want to see better articulation than the giants that have been released however. Another question is the scale - in the comic he is truly massive, so he'd have to be a lot bigger than Tytus to be accurate, but that probably isn't realistic for a figure.

    Would he fit in a Tytus box but with his knees up to his chest and his head ducked down???

    He could have some knees up music then.

    It would be great to see a Procrustus figure in MOTUC.

    would be very cool. but i would rather have ABC giants, Serpos, and Granymer.
    Procrustus would just take up alot more room on the self. i see him as a one time used character.

    Yeah, I have no nostalgic ties to this, but I'm really looking forward to him. Nothing about that design could possibly equal not-cool. A four-armed rock giant is gona be way more interesting than any of the giant figures yet.

    I would definitely buy a procrustus figure without hesitation, but honestly, he would have to be bigger than tutus and megator. All images of him show him as a huge character - a good bit larger than the giant buck we've seen...
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

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

    Can't wait for a Procrustus figure. A freakin' four-armed giant, what's not to love about that?

    good figure idea. Would look great.

    Want the ABC Giants first, and I dont quite want them...

    I dont know, I'm torn.

    But if they do him I know it'll be great.

    BIG yes to this guy.
    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

    Every his arm stands for cardinal direction, in my opinion, he fulfill similar function to Atlas from Greek mythology. Also he really looks to me like a Titan from Greek mythology. Overall I love to have such a ancient character in MOTUC.

    I never thought they would make him that early, however he looks great and I'm very happy to add him to my collection.

    With a new precedence being set in price for Granamyr at $80 I'm sure we could get a huge Procrustus for around the same price. The thing is, the fan community has been waiting for Granamyr for nearly 30 years, will a large majority be willing to shell out that kind of cash for a somewhat obscure mini-comic character?

    That's a good point you bring up although how many people thought BG Teela would come to fruition and she was even more obscure to many. I think it will totally hinge on how well Granny does when he goes on sale. I just realized that scale wise wouldn't Procrustus need to be about 6 He-Men tall?

    No seriously thought I'd be ok with Megator/Ty buck being used and then re-tooled a tad to accommodate 4 arms- it would serve as being functional and make him slightly larger than Tytus. I would definitely want them to wait till they decide how big Granny will end up before they do Procrustus though.

    Yes. This figure is more anticipated than Tytus or Megator. Furthermore, it is a fabulous opportunity to take the Masters back to their roots.

    An elemental deity... a great inclusion in a wild barbarian world!

    It would be excellent if Procrustus somehow obtained his role in holding Eternia together as a defensive mechanism in the defeat of Hordak's spell of separation. Procrustus giant enemy of the Horde in Preternian times, sent by King Grayskull to the caverns of Eternia to hold the planet together in the days and months following Hordak's failure to cast the spell.

    One of the more overlooked reveals so far is one of the nicest.
    He may have a ridiculous job, but he is one hell of a nice-looking figure.





    Nice to see the swivel biceps. Hard to tell if the shoulders are ball-jointed, but I won't get my hopes up. Regardless this will be the first giant I pay full Matty price for.

    When Procrustus appeared in the bios, I was sure they'd make him. I wasn't excited at the idea, but now I've seen him, I like him a lot!

    He looks like some kind of Earth Elemental or god which is awesome!

    Definitely one of my favourite reveals!

    With Granamyr representing Fire, we just need an Air character, Spirit character and Water character as oversized figures and we have all the elements represented!
    He who dies with the most MOTUC wins!
