Got my sub Randor and Dekker the day before Thanksgiving. I happy with both.
Randor- I'm glad to have a Filmation version. He's more iconic, and now seems a lot more natural next to the queen. The bright plastic is great, but could've gone for some sort of light shading. The lack of bicep swivel is terrible.
Dekker- Is as awesome as I was expecting. Though I didn't know how much we needed him in MOTU until now. He rounds out the (cool) heroic warriors so much. Having Duncan and Malcolm standing next to their doctore looks great. The 200X mace is a total waste imo. Good thing for Spymonkey, even though Dek is skilled with any weapon.
Now I'm patiently waiting for Castle Grayskullman to arrive.

With the holiday craziness I didn't have an opportunity to upload these earlier, but here they are... I'm so happy with all three of them, and especially thrilled that EP King Randor's crown doesn't look too terribly different when standing next to Queen Marlena!
Does anyone know why my Dekker white mailer box says LODAR and TROLLA on it. Is it because Mattel is trying to keep the trademark? I looked around, but don't see anything on the boards.
My goodies arrived over the holiday weekend. Princess Adora has been reunited with her suitor, Prince Kyle Reccula.
Dekker joins the battle.

Mine should be here Friday; really looking forward to this round. I've been psyched for Randor from the moment he was announced, but seeing Dekker and CGM in the pics folks have posted has me looking forward to them very much, as well.

This has been one if my favorite months. All three figures have surpassed my expectations.
1. EP King Randor: I always wanted this version. He looks like he just stepped out of the tv from the filmation cartoon. My only complaint is that he can't sit down, kinda kills the throne idea, but neither can Queen Marlena.
2. Dekker: I like the idea if having Man at Arms teacher. I think he looks great as a figure, I really wouldn't change this guy either. I know a lot if people think he boring, but I really like this figure.
3. Castle Grayskullman: I really feel that he represented what the contest was about. He looks totally B.A. From head to toe. The only thing I'd change is that he have a way to sheath his swords on his back. Other than that he looks great.
I got my Castle Grayskullman order from BBTS (after forgetting about November's sale date) and I like him. But then again, I thought I would. Of course the swords are bent out of package due to the way they are packed but other than that he is a great addition to my MOTUC collection. Good job, D.B.!

Dekker finally arrived today. This is an awesome figure. Much better than I expected. I know this gets said all the time but the 4H really did an amazing job with Dekker. I can easily see this guy having been in the old Filmation series, not just a 200x design.
I like seeing the MOTU line expanded and was pleased when Dekker was revealled at SDCC - but now that I have the figure in hand it is sooooo much better than I expected.
