    If the Granamyr figure's wing-to-body ratio is the same as the cartoon, then it seems like he's going to be absolutely enormous now that we know what size his wings are going to be.

    The wing size changed a ton though in the cartoon, so it's not a great indicator.

    The Q&A for Pendragon's Post says that there will be no other SDCC exclusive from another vendor like Battle Armor Faker was.

    No, he had big wings and small wings depending on which frame of the cartoon you reference, but Draego-Man's wings can only be on the small side of a toy version unless he's no bigger than Tytus (though even then, smaller than I would like).

    How would those wings even work with Granamyr?

    Anyway, nothing at all interesting right now.

    BTW, are we going to have to wait until SDCC to find out what the 5th 30th figure is?
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I posted this in the Granymyr thread a while back ... hope it helps to get a sense of scale when using Draego Man's wings in comparison to a regular figure...

    So I need to update my credit card, but Mattel's answer to that guy's question was pretty much left ambiguous. If I change it now, do I risk not getting the rest of my May figures?

    Oh, and this seems to be a big cop out answer:

    Q: Will Club Lion continue in 2013?

    A: It is too early for us to comment on 2013 at this point for any brand.


    So they keep talking about a 2013 DC sub possibility, but when it comes to Voltron, they pretty much just avoid the question.

    What was Mattel's purpose in licensing Voltron when they aren't even going to utilize the license? They should have let someone who cared get the license.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    So they could get the Filmation rights. We all wanted Mattel to get the Thundercats license but by going for the Voltron license they were in a position to work closely with Classic Media

    I would rather they had Thundercats over Filmation rights. And I would rather someone who actually cared about Voltron got that license.

    Considering the fact that the resellers are jumping on Voltron and the price they are now going for I think Mattel have another winner in the Voltron license and they are probably trying to work out now how they can capitalise on that.

    I like that they got the Filmation rights because it is needed for MOTUC but I would have loved if they got Thundercats

    And who might that be? As of late I'm not really seeing any other companies handle licensed properties particularly well either.

    Right now, I'm not sure, but someone who would release villians and the vehicle series stuff.

    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely Mattel for releasing the Blazing Sword Voltron and the pilots, but SDCC would have been the perfect time to do a Blazing Sword VV figure, or a villian three pack of Lotor, Hagar, Zarkon. However, I think my biggest gripe is that every time I asked about Voltron on their facebook page, my post was deleted and then I now cannot even post comments on it. I was banned from their forums for asking Voltron questions. Everything I have asked lor seen asked gets ignored. It seems like everything related to Voltron is top secret information and you get ousted for asking about it.

    See, now answers like these really confuse me.

    It is a line that depends solely on word of mouth, social media and collecting forums to get info out and promote the line. The idea behind these questions is to get the customer (who they want to sign up for $550.00 a year) juiced up and wanting to get their hands on future stuff. These answers are garbage. They say they have the line planned out for another 4 or 5 years, so what is the harm in letting us know 5 or 6 months in advance what product is coming out. Why all the secrecy?

    Because things change so much so often that we hate having to give out update after update. We want to make sure something is happening for sure before it is announced (and look at how much still changes!). Look at how most fans see Draego Man's shield or Horde Prime's stick in the mud. Once we show something, fans/customers expect it. We know this. This is why we hold information back until we are sure it is going to happen. Things change so much that we want to show what you are getting, not early prototypes or concepts that won't make it.

    And of course their are legal, PR and licensor issues too, but you get the point.

    But all you have to do is put that little legal jumbo gumbo that something is subject to change.

    However, my biggest gripe right now is why aren't my subs being combined? Or is Spector going to ship with Flash since they were both delayed? And you can't say I am using a different shipping method because all are from UPS Ground, on the same credit card, etc. Plus, if that were the case, Draego-Man would not have shipped with Yellow Lion and He-Man.
