    Sure hope he sells well. I'm so excited. Always liked him.

    I've got my Wind Raider, He-Man, MAA & Orko just waiting for the big Matty box to get here.

    Is it the 17th yet?

    I wish I could afford him, but unless some miracle happens and I get a ton of money in my possession in the next week, I can't.
    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.

    More than likely so....I know it's Christmas, and he's well more than the Wind Raider last year was....sorry to say though, everyone who ordered the giant green Castle, will be getting a huge shock next December, no matter if they were able to save or not, $250 + will be a huge bill come next Christmas....

He may be a lot of money, but he's very well done and I actually love his detail, I will reserve my final, final judgement for Pixel Dan's review as always, unless he doesn't get to do one. But with no sub, nothing else to buy in Dec, and my typical monthly toy budget of around $50 - $80 +/- intact, I can safely say I can afford Granny, and another final decider will be shipping, if not it's Mosquitor alone, as I have no use for a one off $44 Mini Comic character, at least Granamyr has some nostalgia to me being in Filmation a few times, and pretty much being what those episodes were completely about. Viking Helmet and all.

    I...I can't pass him up. I just can't. Look at him, for pete's sake! He's a huge, fat dragon sitting back like he's lounging after a hard day at the factory and he's about to open up his fiftieth beer! It would be good enough that he's sitting like that, but then he also has articulation?! So I can making him do things he's obviously not supposed to do??

    Yes please, and gift wrapped with a note on top that says "Here ya go Alexx, we wrote all the jokes for you by simply making this figure."

    Easy pass for me, I know this character since the 80's but, like Procrustus, have never wanted him as a figure in my collection. I also blame him for taking a spot which could be for Battle Ram...

    On the other hand, I have waited for granamyr almost my whole life, to wait another 3-4 months won't kill me. I'm just really surprised so many ppl leave him out because they do not like the red fatty.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    I'm getting him next week, but Granamyr isn't my favorite dragon design.

    I'm going to pass on him - he's just not a character I'm bothered about. Also, like many other international fans have said he's way to expensive once shipping and taxes factored in.

    I'm willing to wait and see if he appears in the next Mad Matty sale (like seemingly everything outside the sub does) and may consider picking him up for less - otherwise I can live without him.

    I´m hopefully getting one from Santa. But even though I collect every MOTUC item twice (one MOC, one lose on display), the dragon shall only be in my collection once. I cannot afford a second one this year.
    Positivity, folks!
    Let´s all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    I'll just be getting one. Usually I buy two of every MOTUC figure but he is too big and expensive (especially with international shipping plus customs duty).
    I suppose he will sell very poorly. There's also Procrustus so December is an expensive month already. I don't know about everyone else but I'm also already starting to save up for Castle Grayskull as it is insanely expensive if you live in Europe.
    Awesome sticker included!

    I figure this guy will be first on the hey look random sale block. Look for him to be 15 to 30% off somewhere down the line. At least with all the passing we are doing those who want him badly should be good come next week

    I was just trying the "subtle" approach to infect the haters minds with Granamanyia.

    Can't speak for why folks wouldn't want him based on size either. We have a mountain of normal figs now and with the end on the horizon and most of core characters have been taken care of, there's suddenly no room to put him? I don't know if I can agree with that.

    To those internationals who are getting slammed with extra costs, would ebay allieviate some of this? It might be an indirect way to get you a discount (especially if the ebayer hasn't factored in the crazy shipping) . Unlikely, but who knows?

    As for the rest of you Non-Granamyrians, suit yourselves! That just means less folks to compete with for the first in-stock shipments.

    The problem I've found with ebay is that either the seller is in the US and tracked shipping is very expensive, plus they want to cover their original shipping cost or the seller is in the UK and they want to cover their costs shipping/customs etc plus sellers want to make a bit extra. As such, generally the cheapest way tends to be via Matty.

    How about for used/opened items? It's alot slower to collect that way but are the lower costs worth it?

    I pass on Granamyr. I rather save the money for Grayskull and/or a green version.

    Pass for me. If MOTU was my main obsession then I would definitely get it. I see the appeal. But since I collect many different toy lines I just don't have the space, let alone the money. My "giant toy" spots are all taken by large Transformers like Fortress Maximus, Grand Maximus, Unicron, etc. and some large GI*JOE vehicles like the Skystriker and Night Raven. And alas, I will be passing on Castle Grayskull too. And that one hurts but I just can't make room for it even if I did want to spend the money. I really wish this line had been 200X scaled. It would have made everything a little bit cheaper, a little bit lighter (and therefore loose joints wouldn't have been as much of an issue), and it would have made everything just a little smaller taking up less space.

    I'm not buying large scales anymore, would make an exception for vintage vehicles & stuff like Stridor...

    My focus is on the normal figures...

    The only loose items I've purchased are the BA Faker and Blue Mer-man from the DCUC packs but these weren't really typical items - still got them for a decent price though.

    Opened figs will usually be cheaper but like you said there is the wait to factor in and a bit more risk involved in what you are getting.

    From what happened at the Matty sale last week I reckon if you are willing to play the waiting game a lot of the non-sub items will show up reduced. What really got me was the Great unrest weapons pack getting a reduction 2 weeks after I'd purchased it! As such I'm not going to jump on everyhting straight away this next year.

    I completely understand this train of thought.

    Many people wanted a mini comics-colored Granny but if the Filmation-colored one doesn't sell well, I can guarantee we'll never see the mini comics version.

    I don't though understand the whole "I can't afford it cause it's the holidays" excuse. Mattel gave ample warning that he was coming. Are people really this bad at managing their money?
