    Yeah I'm really LOVING the Griffin! I actually kinda like the light gray wings…it gives the creature some contrast. And, even though this is the BC buck…it looks heavily altered. The upper torso looks totally reworked with (of course) the wing joints and also all the added hair! I'm REALLY looking forward to getting this beast!

    He's my favourite beast after Battlecat. I love that he's going to make Beastman look taller, right now that poor guy is practically the smallest on the shelf

    I'm really excited about the upcoming Griffin. This is a figure that was not on my radar at all so it caught be completely by surprise. I love the 200X series and this beast will be a very welcome addition to my collection!

    I'm also loving this beast. The wings are perfect in my opinion, giving the overall look more contrast. Now I have somewhere to put Beastman who is always falling over.

    Love the Griffin. Does anyone know if his wings will fold back along his sides?

    LOVE that pic! I like the brown wings the best! The different feet is cool and makes sense because of Mythology as others have said.

    I just can't get over this beast, you guys - HE'S AWESOME.

    Loving this idea and it's an inspired re-use of the Battle Cat buck.

    To be honest i'd only want brown wings if they were done as part brown and blended into shades and other characters. Flat brown wings would look boring.

    The Griffin was absolutely my favorite reveal of the con. He's perfect as he is with the white/grey wings.

    But they are totally brown in many other shots. Even if they were part brown like this shot, that would be better than the all gray ones.

    The gray wings are final! I for one am pretty happy. I think it's more interesting... though I do sort of wish it was more a fade and less abrupt.

    I prefer the gray wings. It's a great contrast with the beast body and beak.

    out of all the reveals, this one supprised me the most. So in that It was very cool.

    Ultimately though, I'm just not feeling it. Oh, I'm getting one, in my sub, and I'm ok with it. Just not really excited about it. I dont want to put Beastman on in (too important having him stand with Skeletor) but I dont want to display it without a rider. So I'm torn.

    But it's cool. Just kinda "meh".

    I love the Griffin, but I think the wings look unfinished in plain grey.

    They only fit to the small feathers on the head, but they look unpainted, too.

    Since I haven't seen it in person and I am also sure, the FH know what they are doing, I can only judge it from the pictures.

    Solid brown would also not work I think, but some lighter brownish colour would be nice.

    We got a colour change on Faceless One, maybe TG can talk to the FH again and ask them if they can still do something about the plain grey. The attachment to the body comes very aprupt, so it seems to me!

    right, but they are also not JUST grey! It looks like the unpainted production figure on the wings from what I see on the pictures. Maybe different to see it in person.

    What do you say Pixel Dan, you were the closest to it, right? (Besides TG)

    to my surprise i was going to pick up a second to open, but the total gray on the wings looks awful. if the leading edge was brown and then fades to gray, i could have handled it, but not like how it is now.

    Awesome that Matty and the Four Horseman are makibg MOTUC the "creature" line! In the 80s, 'Dragon Walker', 'Battle Bones' and the Fright Zone puppet were the closest we had to the menagerie that Filmation and mini comics promised. Luckily, as a six year old, my best friend had Blackstarr's dragon Warlock and the flying bull Triton ( which the MOTUC Griffin really reminds me of: http://www.virtualtoychest.com/black...rtritonb1c.jpg )
    These became Eternian fauna for some occasions.

    The gray wings are final !
    I wish Toyguru could have told us earlier... It would have helped a great deal the fans to "manage their expectations" !

    Personally, I like the Griffin the way it is.

    I also remain perplexed as to why ToyGuru is so vehement that 200X design references are extinct from MOTUC when Stinkor and the Griffin so clearly have Mike Young connotations...
