    I think that's been cleared up a few times - pure 200X heads that are totally different looking = No. 200X elements = yes.

    Buy two and paint one. That's what I tell everyone who doesn't like the colors of their figs. That's what I'm going to do. Take my own advice.

    I did a quick mock-up with Brown wings, similar to the color scheme of the cartoon...What do you think?

    I like that look, Tamusk! Good job! That looks better than solid gray OR solid brown. Yours at least looks decent. VERY nice!

    flocked griffen?

    I was just looking at the pictures of the oversized griffen figure and is it just me, or does he look like he has flocking. I don't know if this was confirmed anywhere else , I haven't heard anything about it.

    I doubt it; after all the debate over Panthor and the problems with Moss Man, I think Mattel is done with flocking for the foreseeable future.

    Flocking sounds like a dirty word, but it's not.

    I second that. I think it's just really fine detailed sculpting.

    I'm really hoping we see the Griffin on display at Toy Fair with the painted wings. It should look so much better in my opinion.

    eh I could go either way. I saw him in person at Power-Con and I LOVED the white wings, but I guess Im in the smaller camp on that

    The white wings were good for me too…it'd be nice that with the color change coming that they leave SOME white there. It added some variation to the color scheme.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I liked the white wings fine too, but if it looks more like King Tamusk's mock up there, I'd be happy with that as well.

    I will buy 3 or 4 depending if we can add items to our sub order for combined shipping.

    So glad they changed the wings on the Griffin! He's 100% better, imo. Very excited to get him:

    The new wings make this the perfect griffin in my opinion. I have two ordered in the subs and may add two more.

    Yep, the additional paint app detail on the wings was definitely needed and I'm very glad to see Mattel and the Four Horsemen taking fan requests into consideration for changes such as this.

    I'm sorry, but in the picture above taken at NYTF, I cannot see any feet/Paws/talons at all ! Is there a better NYTF pic of the Griffin ?

    I was happy with the wing color before, but I have to say the new color scheme is awesome! Love it!
