    This really is a dud month for me. No interest at all in this version of Randor. Don't see the appeal but happy for those of you who are excited. I know there are variants I want that others don't. Dekker is a bore, never liked the character and never wanted him in the 200X days. Castle Grayskull Man is the saving grace.

    i wonder if there will be any variance between this "official" run of cgm and those that danny got in his "preproduction" case?

    Well, I got my CGman ordered! I saw that refresh page a bunch of times but I remained patient and it went through A-OK. Can't wait to see him in person! Since I pre-ordered CG a few days ago, I decided I needed a statue guardian for it.

    Now I need to get the funds for a Randor (the other fig I want this month) and trade someone for a Sorceress (to add to CG next Dec).
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.

    And Patrick, I'm 100% with you on all of your OP!

    Great idea using the WP Clawful shield for Dekker. I may follow suit.

    Yeah, I don't know about anybody else, but the Clawful shield and mace from the WP are PERFECT for Dekker. I'm taking his young head and mace and putting them on a Palace Guard body. BAM! Instant young Dekker-at-Arms!

    Thanks! But I can't really take the credit--I think it was mentioned that that was the idea behind those weapons in those colors when the pack came out, and I'm glad they did it because I freaking love Clawful's shield, so I'm all for more chances to use it!

    That would be the wrong body. When I asked him if Dekker had the same armor as Duncan, Toyguru said that Man-At-Arms is a title, not a uniform.

    Letīs all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    does anyone think the Eternia Tower sheild will go great with Dekker? I figure the colors probably, but the Rasta dreads and now a lion shield. Does anyone else make a connection here?

    I am typically never negative when it comes to this line. Even with its flaws, I'm not often one to complain. But I gotta say, Dekker is awful. What a snore. I can picture if this line were sold retail, we'd see a million of him warming the pegs in a Toys R Us outlet store. His colors look late '90s to me, and there is absolutely nothing interesting about him. He's a dude with a tunic... oh, and an eye patch. Yay.

    Not a real big fan of Dekker...I could have done without that figure. Filmation Randor is cool and I really like CGman. And Dekker is about 10 years old now as a character isn't he? So late 90's early 00's makes sense.
    It's all about being polished when it counts!

    Dekker should have come with an un-helmeted MAA head and the arm cannon that came with the Weapons Pack. Would have made him much more appealling. He is a very "meh" character.

    Yep, he's one of the last gasps of a dying lien (in my heart, if nothing else).

    Filmation Dekker?!?!?!

    Dekker was never in the Filmation series. He was a new character created for 200X.

    I don't think that's really the case. Sure there's been some significant hiccups…but with Castle Grayskull's presale going so well Classics is far from being a "dying lien". And being at seven hours in, Dekker's "almost gone". Not too bad for a character that admittedly not too many were keen on (at least on these boards). Being here for the birth and death of the 200X line, I'd say there's a little more to come from Classics.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Yes, I'd say Castle Grayskull and a full year of amazing figures contradicts that.

    He's not. Man-At-Arms has a teacher in the Filmation series, and though his name escapes me, it's not Dekker at all.

    I would say "amazing figures" if Mattel would be more contstant in producing them right. I got this year only Kobra Khan, SMAA, Draego Man, Thunderpunch He-Man & Slush Head without any flaws. Stinkor, Spikor, DB Skeletor, Rattlor, Mekaneck, 1 of the Snakemen suffered from bad decisions by Mattel. No need to mention Frosta, where even POP fans were annoyed by her color sheme and reversed forearms. My Fisto had 2 left shoulders. The drums on the Sorceress shoulders. Wait until Procrustus arrives, he`s got 4 arms to mess around with.

    If Mattel would have a higher quality standard, then these figures would be "high end collector items". So far, they`re not compared to other adult collector companies OR even to other toy companies like LEGO, Playmobil or Hasbro.

    This line deserves better quality!

    I was talking about the future, actually. I meant the line-up coming in 2013.

    As for figures with problems, mine are all great and I enjoy the heck out of them. Even minor quibbles disappear in my mind once they are on the shelf. I'm having too much fun with them to care, I guess. To each their own.
