    It will be the first Classics item that I pass on, I wouldn't of bought the star sisters but with the sub I got them. I just don't think the figure is cool enough to warrant an $80 price tag. If it was in the $40-$50 range I might not be passing it up. I kinda want to be a completist but can't pull the trigger on him.

    I considered passing on him, because he isn't green, but I'm still getting one. Wish they would have split the run 2/3 red and 1/3 green for those of us who wanted the mini comics version.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Too expensive for this time of year!

    If it had been released last month or Oct, I probably would've bought him. I also would have preferred a green version.

    He will be a Christmas present this year from the Mrs. but the price tag is really high. 2013 should be a cheaper year tho for figures overall, so that will save me some cash. I can see lots of folks passing on him, but I can't see Matty selling him for much cheaper in the future. CG is what I still haven't pulled the trigger on... that is crazy priced... but I know I will get it b4 the deadline!

    Not a sub holder, but passing anyway. I spent $250 on BF/CM, so I'm just about done financially on toys for myself. There will be an exception for Mosquitor though.

    Thought I was getting him. But buying too many vintage MOC figures right now. I will buy him when he goes half off.

    I will likely by buying Granamyr, I have no sub until next month, then I'll have to decide on out of sub things....hopefully they balance it out on the non quarterly months for those things....and none on the Foe Men month. Single figure $25 months will be fine if there is something extra like another figure, but on the $50 - $100 quarterly months....that's a bit much to do.

    But maybe since BBTS has subs, they will get some of the non sub items so I can get them later, if there's too many at once.

    Yeah, I'm passing on it. If I was making a list of the top ten beasts I wanted to see in MOTUC Granamyr wouldn't make the cut, while I'd happily pay $80 for MOTUC Bionatops! That being said the sculpt did turn out really nice, but the filmation colors still make him an easy pass for me. I do hope he sells well enough for Mattel to release a second run in mini comic Green someday, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I am passing! I would prefer a vehicle instead. Anyway I have to admit that it was very well sculpted, but I still have no interest.

    No way, I'm definitely down for 2 granamyrs. He's just too sweet to pass up.

    I might, not because he isn't part of the subscription, but because I don't have any money to spare as I need to get Xmas gifts. If anything, I'll just buy him off ebay at the end of Jan.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    I don't have a subscription either and I'm not getting a Granamyr. I think the 4 horsemen have done a great job, but I'm not into this character the slightest. It's not even the bulk, it's just that this character holds no sentimental value for me.

    I have just enough money to do one thing. Get presents for my kids or Buy the Big Red Dragon. I am passing. If mattel hadn't made the last three months so expensive I might have gotten him. I understand schedules slip but some of us live paycheck to paycheck and sometimes can't save up even if we know something is coming.

    I was on the fence earlier and had a whole Truetorial planned. I had an artist friend draw this up:



    But since the Castle was announced, it pushed me over.

    WOW! There are a lot of people passing on ol' Granamyr!!

    I have waited most of my life for this guy, so I am in for (hopefully) two!

    I wonder if this is the sentiment everywhere and not just the .org.........

    I hate the idea of international folks missing out because of the insane added costs. Same old story though. For all the others trying to pretend like this is a bad looking figure or it doesn't "fit", you're a real drag on this discussion. You're arguments don't stand up on their own. Well I won't take it sitting down! It's like trying to decorate for Christmas without red or green. Like playing for the Vikings without a helmet. It's like common sense; any Phil, May, or Shawn could understand it!

    Yeah, I'm out. I'd go for him at half the price, but $80 is too much for a big, sedentary dragon in a German helmet.
    I can't spare that much space for him.
