    As someone who missed out on the red one I'm so excited to finally get Granamyr. I think the bio and figure both turned out amazing!

    The bio is one of the better ones. It makes me interested in seeing how Kahn's turned out if he has one.

    Wow! This bio actually makes me want him for my Preternia shelf, I love how they explained the color difference...but I still don't have the room and I didn't order one. It's a good thing Power-Con didn't hold stock to sell at the con...I would have been very tempted.

    Now, if more bios were written like this all along, I would have been a bigger fan of them!
    This one not only successfully combines Filmation lore with Powers Of Grayskull, MYP era, and mini-comics, but also gives a palatable reason for things like: change in appearance, origin and powers of He-Ro's gemstone, etc.
    I do want to get the green one eventually and part with my red one, but I couldn't stomach the price at the time he became available for pre-order. Some day, perhaps...

    I traded a few figures to get Green Granamyr from another here on the boards. Once I saw they were releasing a green version, I traded away my red one, just due to the fact I prefer the green...also, green is my favorite color so it all works out!

    The bio sells me on him as well, in as much as I love a preternian version and a modern one. I'm not buying it mind you. This will go on the "some day in the further future when/if I have gobs of money" list.

    I always loved the bios and more than once they sold me on a character I did not care about, so I am really excited to see Kamo Kahn's since I ordered him from Big Bad Toystore. I'm still holding out that he is a different character than Kobra Kahn, but at least I can maybe expect a story.

    Very cool...and this definitely lessens the sting of no SDCC exclusive for Classics.
    Icer and Filmation Clawful made. Mission complete.

    That's hands down one of the best bios I've read in a long time! And "Gem of Magoo" is just fantastic! We need more bios like this!

    This is not a figure to wait on. They have supposedly not made a lot of them.

    I never got the red one, so I am glad to get this one, especially as I prefer him green.

    I wonder who wrote the bio. They did a good job.
    ALAS, POOR CLASSICS....

    Cool bio...but I'm still sticking with my original idea of this being a "Mirror Universe" or even Ani-Eternia Granamyr that's evil.

    I love the reference to Magoo--that's awesome! I think he would have loved that!

    I'm excited you all went all out and recolored the art AND created a new bio. But, most importantly I felt genuinely a little teary-eyed at the poignant implementation and significance of the Gem of Magoo.._ awesome, classy, and deserved.._ I love this community! Great move, all involved!

    I'm impressed as well. I really though I was going to get one box with 3 figures in large bags. This is a pleasant surprise.

    I also like the bio. I think it's quite creative and I also like the color explanation. I like that they changed the sub-title name "Great Magic-Wielding Dragon" with "Great Dragon Lord of Darksmoke." I liked the Filmation Red but I love the Acala Green! I'm very pleased Mattel didn't cheap out and re-use the old box. This is gonna look awesome on display with my complete collection and next to Red Acala Beastman and Kamo Kahn.
    It's all about being polished when it counts!

    Who wrote the bio? It's good.

    Some talented people who will be revealed when Mattel one day says it's okay to do so.
    Gotta respect that confidentiality agreement!

    Red or Green, this is a fantastic figure! IMO, Granamyr is such an integral part of MOTU lore that he needs to be in every fan's collection!

    And the Bio is wonderful! Makes me wish we were still getting them in the CC...
    Masters of the Universe and ThunderCats - together for the first time! Pure AWESOME!
