    Join the Crusade for Green Granamyr: Alcala Idolators unite !!!

    Red Filmation Granamyr might have won the vote at SDCC but I'm certain there are lots of fans out here who'd like to have a green variant, as portrayed by Alfredo Alcala in The Dragon's Gift:

    "A knight is sworn to valor. His heart knows only virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the wicked."

    Absolutely! Count me in! A second paint mask shouldn't set Mattel back much and would improve their sales. Red granamyr just isn't granamyr to me...
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

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

    I absolutely want the green version as well! =) Sign me up for it!

    I still, to this day, have not seen the episodes with Granamyr, instead I've read the comic many a time.

    I read that comic book over and over again same goes for Masks of Power (which is also utterly disappointing in Filmation). To me those two comics are the very core what MOTU is about.
    I'm not sure if it's allowed to post links to Youtube, but you can find the whole Dragon's Gift episode on there.

    Normally I'm always down with the green.

    But when it comes to Granamyr I have to go with the red. That's not saying I wouldnt buy a slightly retooled green one later on! But for the price point he's gonna bring...it definitely needs to be slightly retooled and NOT a straight up repaint!

    Yes, he'll need more wards and wrinkles than the red one

    I guess I have been marked publicly for Alcala fan now, so I must comment!

    I would have voted for green too, but I would wait and see what red one will look like first. Colour is not all there is to that character, sculpt will be most important part.

    Skeletor, Sy-Klone, Faker are all blue...we can have like-hued characters.

    Plus Granamyr is more of a burgundy than red outright, but him and Drago-man being so close in colour, it would be cool if their stories were intertwined.

    ANYWAY I'm not arguing against you green supporters, I have no problem in a green variant down the road. but I'm still glad the red is the one coming for sure.

    I wanted him pale Green and yelow....

    Those cartoon versions are just poor variations of the original character... Filmation ruined a lot of good concepts making them bright and colorful.

    For my money filmation made Granamyr amazing. I mean he was ok in the mini comic, but he didn't get to be fleshed out so much. (to be fair the minis are a lot shorter than the toons)

    The original character was created by Larry DiTillio who worked at FILMation.

    It's a shame the mini comic ruined the original character and turned him pale green and yellow.

    Yes, we know that by now, but some people don't care about the uninspired red dragon with pink wings that Filmation did. This topic is meant for the fans that support the Green Alcala version and would like to get this particular variant as well. There are other threads to discuss which one was first or which one is superior, so please don't spoil it for us.

    I LOVE that mini comic, but don't know if I would buy the green version. Guess I would have to see it first.

    I bet if this was the other way around and green won. You all would be saying you want red version!

    if Green Granamyr had won and there was indeed a petition to get a red variant released as well, I wouldn't have bothered to post in a thread that doesn't concern me just for the sake of expressing my preferences.

    Count me in for green Granamyr.

    I also support this thread turning into a protected discussion, sparing fans of the Alcala version certain kinds of unconstructive statements.

    Would you also like Skeletor with white "eyebrows" as well?



    After all, it's Alcala's work!

    Yes, I'd like to have a 100% Alcala Skeletor, with the head that was revealed yesterday and the warpainted head as an alternative (since it's not consistent in every comic). And I'd like a long-haired Alcala He-Man as well. And the red Beast Man from He-Man & the Power Sword. And the goblins from Masks of Power.

    Anyway, this thread is not about Skeletor. It's only regarding Green Granamyr.

    I wanted red, I'm glad we're getting red, but I support a green variant, don't see myself dropping $80 on a second granamyr that I don't want, but I do hope you guys get to get it. that's why I'm posting in here even if I don't agree with green being the better colour for him.

    thanks for your support, man !!! it's appreciated

    Mattel could justify the variants as a young, strong but arrogant, vibrantly red Granamyr in his prime and an old, decrepit, pale green Granamyr in the autumn of his life.
