    To be honest, at first I saw this figure only in a small thumbnail picture and read the name Castle Greyskullman and I went "Oh Boy, this is gonna be bad". Then I saw full sized images of the character and I fell in love with it. Great job and congratulations Masque! I'll be proud to have him on my MOTUC shelf.

I like the "Draego" part of Draego-Man's name... it seems like they were heading in the right direction with that for a fitting name, but simply slapping "man" at the end of it feels kind of cheap and lazy.
    Wow. Ouch.

    It is an interesting concept, but I do agree that the name could use a little work (no offense intended to the winner or anyone involved with deciding the name). Simply adding "man" to the end of some other word doesn't work well in all cases.

    I completely agree with everything you said. Well put sir!
    Love the Draego - don't like the added "-Man".

    Some of the negative comments in this thread are just shameful, really. See some true colors going on.

    The guy won fair and square as far as we all know, and the design isn't bad at all considering the mandatory parts reuse.

    I'm most curious to see how TG is going to address the leakage - AGAIN. Mattycollector/Digital River and crew are damn-near incompetent.

    I definitely agree. For our 20/30/40-something ears it sounds funny. But Evil-Lynn, Ram-Man... all those would too.

    I don't think anyone is saying they should rename him. Just that they won't call him that In Their Canon™

    At first I had the same feeling and though Draegor would be better but it's too close to Dragstor imo, I wonder if the horsemen rejected that for the same reason.

    Pretty cool looking figure. I groaned when I saw that name though.

    I wish Castle Grayskullman would show up in the third mini though! I really just adore the design the more I stare at it. I want big, up-close pics though!

    While that may be his official name, other people may simply choose to call him something else. They have the right to share their opinions on the matter.

    Honestly, I personally think this is leagues better than Spector or Sir Mix-alot (whatever his name is). Well done, very creative.

    Congratulations. The hair are a little weird, but he looks good overall and the accessories are a blast!
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    First congrats!

    Second I love all the details that are pulled from the castle and the figure is great!

    Third, no disrespect but not crazy about the name.

    Anyone know if they are going to show the runner ups pics?

    It was leaked well before a week ago...

    I love the swords. They are the design from the Grayskull flag.

    And as RockinHard and a few others have suggested, the negativity is shameful. The winner is a kid. Let's let him have his day.
