    We actually do have a few dragons the 4h did. The dark ages Spawn line had a doozey! I dont remember what the original name was, but I still have that dragon figure and it stands about a foot tall extended, but didnt stand very well due to the intricate sculpt. I still use him with MOTUC along with other animal type figs from Spawn lines and Winston creatures. If you look at him, the wyvern from the McFarlane Conan line, and Draegoman; you can get a decent idea what they can do with Granamyr.
    I honestly have faith that the 4h can take the source material from both comic and cartoon and come up with a figure that will be more than expected in detail and stature.

    Yeah but not in MOTUC. If only they designed some kind of Dragon Man.

    If I felt that Draego-Man was representative of how the 4H will sculpt Granamyr, then I wouldn't be worried. My concern is that both his mini-comic and cartoon appearances were a bit goofy. He's just has a weird shape. I'm not writing him off yet, but whether or not I buy him will depend on how much cooler the 4H can make him.

    Yeah that goes for me too.

    I prefer something like one of the Dragons we saw in the 200x cartoon or somewhat similar to the Draego Man sculpt.

    Something like this old MOTU art Dragon would also be cool:

    That would be awesome, I'd definitely prefer something like this! I expect we will see something filmation accurate however, so I'm waiting to see if I'll really need this dragon in my collection.

    If that happens and we end up with a filmation/comic accurate sculpt, I won't really complain but I certainly would not be buying.

    I wouldn't complain because it is still something that a vast amount of fans want. It wouldn't be something completely out of the blue that nobody asked for like Spector or Snake MAA. However I will still be a little disappointed..

    Hmmm...I'm starting to get concerned that sales of Granamyr are going to tank! His estimated cost was $80 before it was announced prices would increase and a lot of people are saying they're not interested in him at all!

    I think what could help make him a better sale, would be TWO heads:

    - Filmation/mini-comic looking Granamyr head
    - Dragon head like the book kup posted a picture of

    This would allow us to have both a Granamyr and a regular, large, red dragon (like the book or the big one in MYP).

    I think that might help sell Granamyr because I'm seeing a bunch of comments about not wanting him because of the "muppet head."

    What do you guys think? I'm kind of on the fence because of size and cost...but the ability to have a giant dragon OR Granamyr would be a definite sale for me.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    I'm getting Granamyr whether Mattel offers an additional incentive or not, but I'm definitely NOT getting more than one because he's too expensive and I simply don't have very much room to accommodate the large items any more. I'm guessing he'll sell out within a week... and you know they're gonna reuse that mold again for either the green Granamyr or some other creature that I'm not yet aware of.

    I would happily have bought two of them provided that they went with the green Alcala one. Now that he's going to be Filmation styled, Granamyr is of no interest to me at all. Even if they do a green repaint later on, if he is not sculpted like a silly, saggy old lizard I don't want him.

    I agree, the marketing and advertising for this MOTUC line has been a complete shambles as of late... The only real advertising space they have is mattycollector.com and it wasn't even showing Swiftwind, BP She-Ra or Snout Spout until a couple of days prior to going on sale!! Anyone with a shred of common sense could see the benefit in showing the next months figures at the time of this month's sale, but no, not Mattel, they just whack 'em up a few days before and then tell us there is not enough budget for this n that ... I really wish they would actually promote this line in the way it deserves... I haven't received a sale reminder email from Matty in months!!

    However if they make Granamyr something like this, then I am all for it:

    hmmmm no thanks, too anime/hyper detailed for my liking! ... Just give us the old dragon the way he was intended to be ... (but not in foam or cheap materials!!) ... I do agree I would probably prefer another vehicle over Granamyr, but he will have his rightful place in my collection.

    Best post ever!!

    I think it will be revealed that Mighty Spector actually travelled back in time to the early 80s just so he could play drums for Motorhead! While he was there, he stole Scott's drawing so he could not post it in to Marvel, hence causing a parallel universe, where the Mighty Spector then returned to the present and found himself to be a part of the MOTUC line... The spade on his armour was just something Lemmy told him to wear because he thought the yellow armour looked too plain!!

    Ok so the marketing department at Mattel have time to sit around answering somewhat redundant fan questions, but they can't update their website to show upcoming figures?? hmmmmm

    Is isnt just the 80$... It's plus shipping and for international customers more expensive shipping and additional customs costs...

    So we're talking about an over 100$ item...

    No, keep him the way he is meant to be. Make him look Filmation. Sometimes I wish the 200X line never happened.

    So how he is supposed to look? So green like the minicomic is what you are saying?

    I don't see why 200x has to do with people wanting him to look a certain way.

    Yeah, 200x is just an example as to me, it's a better more traditional European Dragon design. It has nothing to do with the 'anime' looks or whatnot.

    This would also be very much acceptable for me:

    A lot of people are throwing out ifs, ands, & buts. And yet I don't think anybody here that WANTS a Granamyr will pass on him for any reason other than not having enough money on sale date.

    I would want one as long as he doesn't look goofy.

    Sorrowful, maybe. Then again, I'm not sure. Almost every time he was on screen he changed size, if I remember correctly. One scene he'd be having a conversation with She-Ra and be about 4 times the size of SwiftWind, and the next he'd be humongous, nagging at Hordak to behave.

    Ooh I love Sorrowful. He's kinda obscure, and definitely would be expensive. I see him as maybe a SDCC or Power Con exclusive.

    I agree! I'd like to see a really cool, grown-up and intimidating looking design for Granamyr. They can always include a removable helmet for those that want one.
    Awesome sticker included!
