    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.

    They've already copyrighted his name. I'd say Procrustus is inevitable.

    Procrustus is meant to be a god ... his figure should be 20 inches tall at a minimum.

    He should also come packed with a reprint of his mini-comic!

    Reading about him in a bio is okay, but no interest in a figure....

    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?

    I'd like to see him piece by piece included with other figs like they do with the DC and Marvel figures , you have to collect all the pieces and build him. Not sure what that's called but he'd be perfect for it.

    Of all the non-mount beasts/over-sized figures, Procrustus is the one I want more than any other! (Of course, other than Gygor, he's the only one I'm interested in having at all at this point.) While may will disagree with me, for cost reasons, I'd be content with him being much closer in size to Tytus/Megator as long as he had better articulation than those two.
