    As for Dragonblaster Skeletor's bio, it fits nicely. A lame bio for a lame figure.
    Strongly agree, both of those guys are snakemen. I remember seeing it somwhere (i think in the comic books) that Tung Lashor and Rattlor said to Hiss that they only went to the Horde because the Snakemen were trapped in another dimension, something on those lines, i have pretty much everything in boxes at the moment so i cant look for it.

    I always thought Mekaneck caught the techno virus and when he tried to stifle a sneeze, his neck popped out.
    Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.

    Really been thinking about King Randor fimlation style being the sub exclusive, TG has mentioned him a few times lately, he is a character that fans may already have so if they dont get the sub they may not be as bummed out as they were with Shadow Weaver, he is a filmation/vintage based character.

    He will fit in nicely next to Marlena who was last years SDCC exclusive, i often think they do figures close together like BA he-man and skelly, i think we will see Jitsu soon conterpart for fisto.

    I dunno about red red... maybe a reddish brown... or at least my Teela had reddish brown accessories.

    I was hoping for the bio to say something about skeletor & the snake men teaming up to defend from the horde. not skeletor teaming with the masters.
    I'm sure in the 80s mini comics skeletor & the snake men teamed up at some point?

    They did team up in the mini comics in the 80's. But you gotta think now King Hss built Snake Mountain and Skeletor took it over as his base of operations so the two of them would not like each other for that reason alone.

    yeah no kidding.
    I've followed all the myp 200x cartoons & mvc comics. also early mini comics & the new bios.
    trying to figure out how they tie into the new order to the story.
    in the 80s mini comics skeletor & the snake men were seen working together.
    it would make sense that they have a truths at this point in the story if the bios are fallowing the mini comics.

    The pit would be REALLY cool to get! Also, seeing him SUPER close-up thanks to Pixel Dan's pictures...you can see Granamyr is molded in the LAVENDER colour of his stomach...which is VERY bad. You can see it exposed at his knees and the entire side of his body (the seams). WHY would they not mold him in RED?! I hope this is a semi-prototype or something. His paint will chip like crazy. Rule #1 of toys: mold them in the colour that takes up the most surface area on the figure. For Granamyr, that's his red skin! I HOPE this is fixed. Other than that, I think he's pretty darn impressive!

    In this picture, you can see plenty of lavender:

    I have mixed feelings on these bios. DB Skeletor once AGAIN, has him playing second fiddle to Hordak. I've hated that concept since Hordak first showed HIS skull... Granted, we know how it ends with Skeletor winning... but I'm never a fan of the good guy/Bad guy team ups against the 'greater evil'....

    Mekanek????

    I'm not sure... He's always been one of my favorites, and there wasn't anything TOO wrong with it...

    I was surprised that Sorceress and her 'magic nanites'... Not sure how I feel about it honestly...

    FIRST of all... That neck was so CRAZY... that any 'mundane science' would be garbage. MAA fixing him NEVER set well with me. Just... biologically impossible.

    Magic neck?? I can cut that a lot more slack.

    Also, I find myself getting reminded about how Castle Grayskull was always about a blend of Magic and Technology.... Even in the early minis it was about tech from the 'lost ages'... The castle came with cardboard robots and computers... laser rifles and cannons...

    Even those most canons ignore it... It's Hard to get TOO up in arms over it...

    and the more they USE that concept.... the easier it is for me to accept some of the stuff I HATE from earlier in the bios... 'Cloning the power sword'.... "That TECH sword harmonizing with Grayskull..." The magic and the tech have been hand in hand for a while now...

    That's not lavendar, it's white. Just look at the above picture as example, the color of the elbow doesn't match the color of the belly. It's just a prototype that was cast in white, just like lots of prototypes are cast in weird colors.

    You might be right! I hope you're right. Granamyr needs to be perfection @ his price point + shipping. I'm definitely down for one. If they make a green one later...I'll probably get that too.

    Anyway, Teela wearing Weapons Pak armour and I *think* the staff:



    LOVE this pic!



    See? She-Ra without her tiara! People wonder why we wanted to be able to display her without her tiara.

    EXTENDAR may have benefited from this magic with another attachment!

    Since the original concept for the Dragon Blaster used flammable powder (oops), I think the little dude should be called TOASTOR!!! (Also, we'll finally have a use for WUN-DAR's accessory!)

    With Castle Grayskull do you think that is actual size of finished product Just that it states deluxe statue so was thinking it may just be a proto of a larger version to come. I hope so.

    Ok cool, im really looking forward to seeing Granymr free standing, he is massive. Also im wondering how he will be packed in, no doubt in the sitting position, im hoping he will be displayed in a window box even though my wallet is hoping covered box like the wind raider so i only get the one.

    I dont like the real name - Oreos? Maybe TG was eating a snack while he wrote the bio...

    The explanation of his powers... Well, there are things about the origin of fantastic powers in fantasy worlds that are better unexplained.

    I would prefer a deeper explanation about the relation among Mecanek and Marzo.

    Well at least that's how I'm going to use him in my canon.
    Inspired by your idea, I'd love it if Draego man actually showed Skeletor HOW to enslave the dragon, or captured the dragon for Skelly. you're right what a huge waste of a bio!!

    Wow.

    How cool does this thing look!?!

    Can anybody attending SDCC give us an idea of the scale of it? It clearly doesn't look big enough to be in scale with MOTUC but just how big is it?
