The bigger the better.
I will most likely buy red Granamyr, but I badly want a green version. This is for me the iconic version I grew up with By offering us both colors at the same time (but in different percentage) they could have indeed made us happy.

I want a big Granamyr don't really care about the colors I do care only about the size, he shall be big with a large belly!
Posted by Toyguru in the April Q&A thread:
"Guys I promise he is not going to be anything but huge. We aren't "shrinking him" but rather we will be scaling him to the size that works best. Whether that means scaling up or scaling down the Horsemen sculpt is based on what size the sculpt it at. (it is rare for a toy line to be sculpted to scale. Heck- it is rare to just hand sculpt these days). We scaled Granamyr to the size that worked best for around 80.00. And it is HUGE. We'll have the final price and the sculpt to show at SDCC. I promise you will not look at this thing and wonder "why didn't they go bigger" (which I'll admit I know a lot of customers say that about Tytus). You won't feel this way here. Granamyr wil dwarf Megator."
Oh thank you Action Figure Jesus

He should be as big as possible, no matter the cost. Tytus & Megator suffered from being too small, and I do not want Granamyr to share their fate.
Okay guys... let's calm down a little bit. It was me who asked this question and I think most people in this thread didn't get my intention. So let me clarify: What Toy Guru said about toy snot being sculpted in scale is true and most of us know this. When I asked last time about the price for Granamyr, I was told he would cost between 80 and 100 dollars, making him more expensive than what we have been told. Looking at the collection and seing Tytus and Megator at a height that is 1/3 smaller than their vintage counterpart, I simply wondered just HOW big they are going to make Granamyr. A lot of people around here are complaining about not having enough shelf space and then there are costs for shipping and handling and also taxes what would make him VERY expensive.
If they made him at a, lets say 60 $ price point he could still be very much bigger than the giants. I do not want him to be tiny, but I also don't want the price to explode beyond what anyone could afford.
This is the most expensive year for MotUC, not only do we have to pay 30$ more for the subscription in total, there are also 6 extra figures. The con exclusive will be higher than last year, too...
BUT to this point absolutely NOONE around here knows what size he will be until we see him in a few weeks. I did not ask Mattel to make him the size fo Battle Cat, I asked why not scale him down a little tiny bit to keep the cost under control!
So, please complain about him being too small when you have actually seen him and not three months in advance!
I don't really care about his actual size. I'm more concerned about a green Granamyr never happening if the red one doesn't perform well enough.
"Why's Dragstor riding on Night Stalker?" "Cause he can."
A huge dragon like the cartoon.
18"～20" would be a nice height for him.
I'm happy to hear that Granamyr will be big. That's all I need.
But to be fair, it's not as if people misinterpreted the initial way the question was answered. The answer in the Q&A said specifically it was being scaled back. That is a different answer than the one TG gave, so I'm glad he clarified/corrected it. So I think the worry was justified, although as many have pointed out we didn't really know what it was being scaled down and what to.
big and red please. I agree that $100 is steep for a "toy" but I think it will be worth it
I'll be buying him and I want him to be as close as to classics scale as possible
