    Castle Grayskull Man = Iron Maiden's Eddie

    Ok, I figured out why I love this figure so much... he is basically the closest thing you can get in the MOTU universe to the greatest heavy metal mascot of all time...

    Eddie!!!

    "One after one by the star dogged moon,
    too quick for groan or sigh
    each turned his face with a ghastly pang
    and cursed me with his eye
    four times fifty living men
    (and I heard nor sigh nor groan)
    with heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
    they dropped down one by one."
    Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!

    Ah, another fan!

    I just saw Maiden in Vancouver on July 29th... amazing! And that is where the CGM-Eddie connection clicked for me.

    Yep, last time I saw them was 2003 in Toronto... and he hasn't aged a day... or at least you'd never know it! Stellar vocalist and awesome showman!

    This figure won me over at Power-Con.. love the darker wash on the figure. You can really see the difference in the pictures above. Makes you take the figure more seriously.

    I think Scott may have given it to him at PowerCon. He is such a cool figure. Can't wait to have my two, ready to guard Grayskull.

    I hope we get to see the full version of the shield art one day. Looks really awesome.

    Maybe it's just the lighting in the picture, but I'm a bit disappointed by the darker tint.

    Hmmmmm. I wish the hair was a bit darker and the "wash" all over the body was a bit lighter.

    But, it's still a great looking figure. Even though it does just make me wish for similar action figures based on the designs of Snake Mountain, Fright Zone and the Crystal Castle!

    Have they ever shown the original artwork that was submitted into the contest? I'd be interested to see how this thing has progressed from idea to plastic. This figure is too awesome.

    Hes still the best thing to come outta the 30th line.....But...I Hate the Dark Color, He was so much cooler when he was the same color as the vintage CG playset...He just lost a chunk of his magic...

    .....But i still love him.

    Under PowerCon lighting, seems he's generally darker.

    Not a fan of the darker colours either
    But that way the black plastic won't be as noticeable if colour chips off...
    Since he is already produced we can be pretty sure he has it aswell.

    I'm going to wait to see what he looks like in hand, but I have to say I'm disappointed how dark he came out too. His coloring from what we saw before was perfect. That being said, I didn't think he seemed so dark at PowerCon so maybe there's some hope in that. I do think another hit of a lighter color would have made him pop. I'm going to have two, so I may experiment with one of them.

    Maybe that is the new color of Grayskull?.?.? Either way the time is near and I can't wait. Awesome figure for sure.

    Didn't this sort of thing happen with another recent figure? Where they changed something nobody asked for, while ignoring requests from fans?

    The darkening of this figure really throws off the whole point. He should be Grayskull colors, not practically-black. The hair is still yellow. There's still a pink sword.

    Mattel really knows how to kill my good will

    Maybe it's just the lighting or camera angle. Idk. I hope he turned out well for the winner and us fans.

    Yes, I wish he was lighter green like the proto. Yes, I wish the hair was more white and less blond. But I still love him and can't wait to add him to the ranks.
