Yeah, he's probably one of my favorite reveals. The sculpt is just amazing with all the rocky bits. And the four arms look awesome.
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!
One of the Con's highlights for me. I always digged Procrustus, and the figure has exceeded all my expec
"Why's Dragstor riding on Night Stalker?" "Cause he can."
He's not by any means bad.
I may even get 2, one to be opened up...bet hey, december????
while i like this stoney alan mooore looking dude, he may be a victim of December overload for me, if its between him or granymer there is no contest, i like him though
Excellent sculpt for Procrustus, as is usual with the 4 Horsemen...
Nevertheless, I'm a bit scared about the articulations of this figure : if the shoulders are not balljointed, movement will be greatly impaired. And so far, all the giants got very basic, non-balljointed articulations.
Also, the way the 3rd and 4rth arms are attached to the back makes it look weird. In the comics, both pairs of arms were attached to the torso...
I'll have to wait for more info, pictures, and for Pixel Dan's preview (IF we're lucky enough to get a preview, since Mattel seems to get their samples later and later...) before I take my decision to buy him... or not.
the next panels it looks MORE like they come from his sides.
OK, but this doesn't appease my fears about some articulations issues... But I won't worry too much before more info, pics and Pixel Dan's preview.
Whichever is right is ok with me. I like the figure a lot. The colour choice is curious. He was definitely an earthy brown-green in the minicomic. I think the chosen colour is good though.
I am very pleased to see the elemental god from my favourite minicomic!

I have a feeling Procrustus will be one of the figures in the Mad Matty sale just like Tytus and Megator. He's cool looking but there's no way I'm paying $40 plus shipping and taxes.
Very glad they made him. Would have preferred an all-original sculpt, but given that reuse allows these things to be remotely affordable I'm happy it's just the Megator legs.
Yeah he looks real cool.
Great reveal for sure, happy to have another giant and mini comic character. and he looks great!

How are they wrong? The picture everyone has posted from the mini-comic show them to be exactly like the way they are.
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.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
I'm underwhelmed by this figure, never had interest in this character...Easy pass

The Procrustus test-shot has reversed forearms on his front arms, and the hands are misassembled too when you compare them with the SDCC prototype... If the Procrustus featured in Toyguru's latest video ALSO has these issues, then I guess some fans will get one more misassembled figure with reversed forarms to make it "pop"... I won't be one of those, of course, because if Procrustus has a flaw, I won't buy him, especially with his bigger pricetag.Let's see how happy you still are if they should really be mis-assembled!
The "geniuses" at Mattel's already have SO MANY difficulties with figures who only have 2 arms, and now they're even more confused with figures with several arms. I fear the worst for figures such as Mantenna, Modulok and Multibot, because they all have more than 2 arms and/or two legs....
