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

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,
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!.

The Cradle Will Rock As I'm Drivin' Down Highway 40 In My Big Ol' Pick Up Truck.
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?
check out my art:
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.
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.
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.
Diggin Dekker. The old man head sculpt is pretty awesome.
Clawful shield works great
