    Ugh...ok, I just replaced it with the YouTube version. Try that and see if it works. I don't know what the problem is, but Blip has been "processing" this video since yesterday evening.

    Nice, I think it was pretty cool to include Danial in the video. Another great video and I'm excited about this figure. I do wish his hair was more grey or white. But I love this figure and can't wait fer him.

    What a nice surprise by Daniel Benedict, awesome video indeed. As for CGM, his colors are a bit too dark in this review, at least a lot darker than the prototype, almost black-green (forest-green)! That's my only nitpick, other than that he's one of my favorite new characters thus far. I really hope CG once made won't be that dark!

    Thanks again guys.

    The idea of this character is awesome. And I like a lot of his design elements. But I think it would be a much better looking figure if the 'fleshy' parts of his arms and legs were a different shade of green than his boots/gloves/armor. The other thing is the hair. But he did look sweet standing in front of vintage Grayskull.

    I hope you didn't crack your Cy-Chop Dan!

    Daniel Benedict seems like a really cool guy and I'm glad he won.

    Ha! This was great! Please, please, please Dan do some Mosquitor vs CGM pics like Scott did with Spector!

    I cannot wait for CGM. Perfect figure, genius concept only made better by the videos & commercials.

    Congrats again Daniel...or Faker-Dan.

    Hmmm.

    Not to be a kill-joy, but I prefer my Pixel-Dan reviews free of guests.

    I still can't really deal with the hair. I would rather it had been an all-"stone" looking head (maybe ill paint the hair to match the armor).

    For me, the bio dilutes the power and importance of both Twins of Power, and I'd have much preferred if this had been an army builder type of character - soldiers conjured by the Spirit of Grayskull to bolster the team of He-Man & She-Ra during that epic battle.

    That's all just my preference though

    Didn't enter the contest, but I have seen (in person, not online) quite a few entries, and I was really impressed by the unique creativity in each case. I guessing get the joke / light-hearted native of the winning figure, but it just doesn't do much for me... And that's a first in the world of MOTU... Ok, maybe a second after Vykron.

    Well done! Only thing that could make this figure better is REAL fire breath! However, I have full confidence in a future variant with real fire, so no worries.

    Still looking forward to this figure! I want it! I WANT IT NOW.

    Hey Dan,
    Any chance you did an interview with Daniel while he was at your house? I think it would make a great video to have you guys talk about the figure (outside of the review) in front of the camera.

    Great video, and very cool you got Daniel in for a cameo.

    At first wasn't overly thrilled with the idea behind the figure. Then he reminded me of the guards from the ladybird books so I liked him. Then, realising all the little touches (sword, shield etc) made me love him!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    Great video, love the fun in these reviews...

    Castle Grayskullman is one of my faves this year, I was amazed, when I saw him, he has this 80`s MOTU vibe I love, much better than most of the 30th figures, Vykron and Fighting Foe Men...

    The concept is so simple & crazy, it`s genius...

    Can`t wait to get him...

    Love this guy as soon as i saw him, out of the 30th characters its between Drago-man and CGM by a long shot, i think CGM by a nose. Love the concept and eveything about the figure, maybe the hair could be a little lighter but its all good, like the bio aswell.

    I dig this guy... but I am gonna have to go with a different bio... I would feel better if Castle Grayskullman was, simply, He-Man with a stone skin spell cast on him by the Sorceress in the final moments of the battle. I mean... Isn't He-man supposed to be the ones to turn the tide of battle? I'm sorry... but the imagination at Mattel is very dull.
