    NOOOOOO!!! King Grayskull is mute!

    Yes, it's true. I pushed the button and no more "I have the power!" No more sound, no more lights, no more power. I'm wondering if my boys used it up during summer vacation while I was at work, constantly pushing the button. Bronze is still yapping it up though.
    Guess I need to read the directions on replacing the battery, I hope it's an easy fix because being a MOC/MIB collector, I don't want to damage the King.

    Anybody else's battery finally run out?

    There isn't any way to fix it. PM me if you want me to take it off your hands. Even though it no longer holds any monetary value as a collectible, I will kindly offer you $10.

    Damn, that's unlucky. I think I've only opened the box about 3 times since I got mine, hoping to avoid what's just happened to you.

    I just checked and both my King Grayskull`s still have battery power, although I hardly ever touch them. I really hope the batteries don`t start to corrode over time

    You should push the button from time to time, it prevents the battery to corrode

    Iirc, there was an instruction sheet included to show how to change the betteries, and which batteries to use.

    Sorry to hear that, Mike. Sounds to me like Hordak got his final revenge...

    Not to rub salt in your wounds, but both my Battle Sound He-Man and Skeletor (200x line)still work. In fact, I can't shut them up! All I have to do is brush against them in their case and they start up. And I agree with Khror's assesment: pressing the button occassionally (at least once every few days or so) does give longevity to the battery. I've got Star Wars toys from the late 90's that still work with their original batteries.

    I got the original SPYDOR vehicle in 1985, and the same battery worked in it for over 15 years. You just never know...

    Was just wondering how long the battery would last. Mine still works, not sure about the others. It was working a few months ago last time I checked but not sure how long a battery last if it's not being used.

    I had a few packages where the battery leaked while still unopened.

    You can change the batteries. I took mine out as soon as I got them because I don't display them and wanted to keep them from corroding.

    I havent checked my KG recently but now that I've read this, I might need to take the batteries out. It's been in storage for a while and I'm afraid it might have a battery leak. Anyone experienced this before?

    Yeah, that would be very much appreciated. A 4H signed figure's going to lose its value in a heartbeat with a corroded mess on part of the package.

    Hahah. Love this, but of course I hate the mib type collector impulse.

    I would think mib obsessors wouldn't care if they batteries corroded because that is a very possible eventuality, so it's part of the "mint" quality.

    Isnt the whole idea to keep it as whole and complete as possible? Time does march on and that has to be a part of "What" a toy is. If they dont care that for all they know the plastic and paint are brittle or applied wrong since it's never held or examined, joints may be loose or nice and tight, ect...who cares for teh batteries anyway? They're there and that's all that seems to matter.

    It's not about the product, it's about the wholeness of the package right?

    Or you know, just replace the dang batteries if you want to hear and see the thing. The experience of a thing is more valuable than it's existance.

    No one responded to this! It would be great if someone could scan the instructions on how to remove the batteries. I've got regular and bronze and I definitely don't want the batteries to damage 'em!

    The batteries are definitely removable, but I took them out so long ago I can't recall how I did it. I know I was able to put it back together afterwards, though. I had no choice but to take them out, because I pressed the button and it started going "I have...I have...I have" in an endless loop, and I did have to get to sleep that night...

    NOOOOOO!!! King Grayskull is mute!

    They are in the top. Just open the box flap, unscrew battery lid cover, and change the batteries.
