    I don't think it will be a Pre Order, they seem to only do that for high ticket items....another $50 or so vehicle will not likely require one. I'm up for Attack Trak....that I will find a way to get. But....Castle Grayskull is more than likely going to be December....so....Wind Raider was December....so....Here's to next year being a $400 MOTUC Christmas!
    Recent....Flogg
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Saw a pic of Pixel-Dan with his review Granamyr... I hope it's just the paints reacting to the flash of the camera, but he's not lookin' real great in the paint dept.

    Like I said, don't judge a figure by one pic with a flash, different acrylic paints can react and look different under certain kinds of lighting. So, even though I'm passing on him this time, I hope he looks better for the rest of you that are getting him in some more normal lighting settings!

    Yeah, I'm guessing it's just the flash. Flash is evil. It destroys all beauty in the world.

    Il pass, I would liked to have him in green - much more cooler in my opinion - and theres no sense at all why mattel built up this huge figure without the possibility to display him unless that in the couching pose.
    We could saved 30 dollars and have the bottom of the figure as a unique solid sculpt (belly and legs at least) and only arms and head poseable.

    It can't be the flash, because the paint deco seems weird in the review video, too...

    I think spending that money for the legs should have been used for shoulder balljoints and accessoiries.

    Sadly passing this time around. $80 at x-mas time is just not possible.

    Yeah, I'll pass on Granamyr too... Too expensive for me, and not worth the money, IMO. Not enough articulations, and just a "sitting there" figure.

    Unless my mind suddenly goes psycho once it hits 10:00, I am definitely passing on him. I just cannot justify his cost right now, especially with him having a 3 week delay. I get paid on Dec 31st, so if Mattel wants to sell him throughout and not pull him after a week, I will be more than happy to buy one then.
    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.

    After watching PD's review, I decided to skip him too. Does not evoke any interest in me.

    I'd love a Granamyr but after seeing he's $95 after shipping (which doesn't include the inevitable customs charges) I'll begrudgingly have to pass on him for now.

    I got one, but he's not really something I'm overly interested in. I'd have much rather had any other figure/vehicle/playset/beast from any of the assorted lines.

    I wanted to order two, but settled only for one at this time. He might show up discounted down the road where I can order a second one.

    Exactly. It happened last year with WR. And they wonder why sales are just "okay". Worst month of the year to release expensive product. Get with it, Mattel.

    Yeah, I passed on him for now. I have $222 in my bank account. $64 of that just went to ordering my g/f Xmas present and another $31 just went to ordering my parents' present. As such, I cannot afford to get Granamyr.
    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.

    I snagged one. That puppy is staying MIB and getting his big red rear end AFA'd as fast as fate allows. Hopefully I can snag a second one down the road sometime.

    Ordered mine, but that final price tag was the first time since the line began that made me almost balk. Gotta have him, though.

    I was planning on getting Granamyr from day one but over the last couple of weeks I've been inclined to not get him. Money isn't the issue, I just don't really want him. Yes, he's huge,but he doesn't really have the oomph factor for me to consider dropping $100 bucks. I feel like taking the risk to get him cheap down the line!

    I did order Granamyr. Though there seems to be an issue with some paint design choices, I still think he's worth picking up. Compared to a lot of 1/6 collector figures, Granny's a flippin' steal.

    This does illustrate some of Matty's questionable marketing strategies. Dragon figure collectors would love to have a big bastiche like this in their collections, and most probably have no idea this is even up for sale.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!
