    I'm interested in it, but I don't think it's a great use of a SKU. I understand it's probably no new tooling for budget reasons, butt there's a at least a dozen figures that would have been better repaints.
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    If I was going to get one version of KGS, it'd be this one. But, I don't have time to keep checking back on Matty, and ebay prices are going to be inflated, so I probably won't get one

    They had me at GITD.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I'll pass. I like King Grayskull, but I'd rather get the bronze version to put inside of Castle Grayskull.

    I think it's a great figure and will definitely be picking him up!!

    The GITD effect gives him an awesome ghostly vibe and I can't wait to display him inside of Grayskull!!

    The whole point of this is supposed to be to give fans an opportunity to have a "Spirit of Grayskull" figure in their collections (there is absolutely no other acceptable reason to justify hijacking one of the few last spots of the line to give us a fifth variant of KG, with so many dozens of fan requested characters still unreleased), but... this one is not clear plastic, so it defeats its whole purpose. What a disappointment...

    I can't say I'm a fan of KG especially, but it glows in the dark so I'll likely try and pick one up.

    I know people are saying "wasted SKU" and I get that. But, as a PoP fan foremost, I was really unimpressed that Kowl and Lookie were this years chase figure, so having a non-essential chase figure next year makes perfect sense. I'd have been livid if a highly requested figure had been in this slot; it's bad enough the Hover-Bots are the TC figures.

    A novel idea this one.
    I had recently been thinking about a spirit of Grayskull figure, but one that looked more skull face, like the weird ghostly mist in the original mini-comics, the spirit of the castle, and not of the man who was later invented to be it's architect. But I suppose in a way we have that with the heroic warrior embodiment of CGman. Then again, I wonder what he would look like with Scareglow's head on? You could easily pose him as the "spirit of Grayskull" (spirit of the castle version). I can also see some awesome photo storyboards of him taking on Scareglow while attempting to break into the castle.

    Yeah, I'll probably try and get this guy.

    I love it! One of the best varients for 2015. Kinda funny that the chase figure blows the sub exclusive out of the water!

    I didn't think so originally, but after thinking of it, I like the idea of having a King Grayskull ghost to reside in the Castle, like a spirit coming back to help He-man at some point. So far, I include Castle Grayskullman as a CG accessory. Probably going to do the same with this guy.

    Also, GREAT idea putting Scareglow's head on him. That would be creepy and cool.

    that is called 'taste'. to me oo-larr is incredible and very deserved, glowing KG is just a worthless variant (like SOH)

    I did not exactly want this idea when there were two.

    But seeing glow in the dark and having a ghost to put in grayskull (the first fig I'll display in the castle itself) I like it.

    Also I really really want a Slime Pit He Man so this is a best case scenario to make one short of the actual figure. Fun mod to make. So I may even get 2. I'd rather have Slime Pit He Man but what with all the He Man variants we will indeed be getting this comming year, and because it's the end of the line proper, and because they had a Spirit of Grayskull than no one can get, this is probably the correct idea.

    Now if only we can be certain that the bio has the same grayskull in shadow pic that the 2 figures had rather than a different bio or picture. That would be tops.

    You're right. To me mostly naked He-man is a "worthless variant" that my collection didn't really need...(glad I have clothes to put on him ala Green Goddess) where as a Glow in the dark ghost of the founder of Castle Grayskull is AMAZING! Translucent Spirit of Hordak was awesome as well as it poses great with Keldor and ties in great with the new comic stuff.

    Nope, no interest in this figure.

    Not really though glow in the dark is cool so if I happen upon him I may pick him up. I'm not bothered enough that I'll bother hunting for him on matty.
