Hmmmm... this was my main complaint too, the blond hair looks a little weird. White hair with green highlights or a green wash would be way cooler. I hope Mattel will listen to fans on this, and that Daniel himself can have some influence on the final figure, because this really deserves a repaint before it is released. Change the hair color and this is pretty much my favorite figure in the line, it really is that awesome!
Yeah, the blonde hair is nice but it pops out too much. Maybe a darker shade like He-Man's hair with a dirty wash.
Gives me the creeps but his hair is gorgeous
Actually I think this is the coolest of all the reveals. He's creepy and looks like hes from a vintage horror film. PLUS he comes with the swords Ive always dreamed of owning. Ill get 2 for sure, I dig him alot! Whiplashs shoulders would have looked pretty cool also, but its fine as is if thats what they go with.
His hair is going to be white on the final yes? I think thats the only issue I see is that the blonde looks weird as hell.

If I really wanted to be petty I could point out the fact I hinted at Terry's character months ago as "technologically beastly" robot + parts from Beastman= technologically beastly, Frosta and although the boots were different at first...WE SAW AT SDCC THEY CHANGED THEM. Lets not forget the fact that I was so precise with the mini-comic information that Val had to ask me NOT to talk about it anymore as Mattel was giving him and Wellington Alves a hard time. Please try harder to troll next time as I've tried harder to be less negative.

It's a weird kind of character, but so are Vykron and some of the others prototype ideas. Very cool IMO! I want him. Congrats to the winner!
Photos and video of my massive collection! Click here!
Most wanted: 200x Snake Men-carded Roboto, vintage Spinnerella and Netossa. Also: Hook 'Em Flogg's weapon and Missile Armor Flipshot's backpack.
That is what is above in Draego Man's post.
It's a great sketch. Love how the 4H interpreted the shield.
I do like more white on the hair, though you can see it looks much less blonde in the one in the case.
The BIO! A lot of us guessed this one, it seems. Plus... controversy will probably ensue from this one...
Heroic Embodiment of Castle Grayskull
Real Name: Not Appicable
During the Second Ultimate Battleground, Hordak and King Hsss' grand army pressed in against the allied heroes of Eternia. In the darkest moment of battle, all hope seemed lost as many heroes fell, including Snake Man-At-Arms and Stratos. Reaching out through the Orb of Power, hidden deep inside Castle Grayskull, He-man and the new Sorceress used an unrepeatable spell to call upon the Power of Grayskull and infuse life into the very spirit of the castle itself. Rising from the castle's hidden Chamber of Defense; Castle Grayskullman marched into battle, swinging his dual swords of power, helping to turn the tide.
I prefer Grayskullman to be an army of soldiers, not just one. Poor Stratos gets a random death.
Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.
If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
Even the bio isn't bad - a creature like this is entirely what I'd expect from the last-ditch defense by the Castle of Mystery & Power.
A well deserved win.
It was stated in the panel that the hair was going to be closer to a shade of green by Cornboy and Eric. I also agree this figure should represent an army of Grayskull golems to protect the power. I SO cant wait for those swords.
Classic Want list: Stinkor shield, Extendar, Snake Face, Snout Spout, Snake mountain bridge and net, Fright Fighter, Talon fighter radar dish, jetsled, tower tools, cliff climber, scuba attack, turbodactyl, bionatops, tyrantosaur, and Eternia
Oh, whatever the bio says he's definitely going to be an army of two for me at least.
Great bio for Castle Grayskullman. Pretty much what a lot of us thought it would be.
He is absolutely creepy, and that's what Grayskull should be all about. Imagine his enemies reactions when they saw that thing coming at them! He's so creepy that I'm sure I'll have to put him away once in a while
This figure is all-around pure win. For me it joins the ranks of Dekker, Ram Man, and and a few other figures revealed that I just cannot wait to own.
Epic Metal music rocks the universe.
The more I look at this figure, the more I love it! Second only to Draego Man, out of the 30th anniversary figures, and definitely one of the best releases of 2012! Can't wait to stand him next to the Icon Heroes Grayskull card-holder/letter opener set!
I still like this design a bit more. Looks more castle-like. But given the constraints of the CAC I think Grayskull Man hits it out of the park.
Its a long time time to wait for Electroid Love---AREMESH in 2016!
