    MOTU Classics Granamyr Video Review by Pixel Dan

    Just in time for the sale date!



    Up front, I do want to mention that the color red, especially seen on his chest/stomach, seems much brighter on camera than it does to the naked eye. A few folks asked me about that over on Facebook when I posted pics. The color red is darker on the head, arms, and legs and fades tot hat lighter color on the front of the figure. The inner arms and legs are also this lighter color red. It looks much more natural in person. On camera it comes off much brighter than the rest of the figure. red is the hardest color to photograph, so I'll blame it on that.

    enjoy!

    I still can't believe we are getting Granny after all these years! That is still one of the few Filmation cartoons that I can still vivdly remember.

    Of course, now I have to brave Matty.com and the RSoD to get him. When does he go on sale again?

    I've been waiting for this review, thanks. However, I still can't decide if I'm going to get this big boy...

    Super cool! Can't wait to get him! Even got a spot on my shelf all ready for his massiveness.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    Apart from the main body can we disassemble the rest? Legs, arms, wings and tail?

    What a fantastic figure, can't wait to hopefully get him. It's cool that he can kinda stand up if you use his tail to lean on.

    No balljoints at the shoulders and the hips are a deal breaker for me.


    Looks like no Granamyr for me, my wallet is ecstatic!

    I'm wondering this, too. Specifically, I want to know: is the tail removable once assembled? I can imagine the tail will take up a hefty amount of shelf space on its own!

    I think at some point in my canon I'm going to have him attack Grayskull King Kong style because he is so impressively large. I wish the giants had gotten that much love.

    Gawd..., I wish I could afford him right now, but I can't.

    I have to wait another 3-4 months and then he will be MINE!
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    The arms are fairly easy to pop back off with a little pressure, as I showed int he articulation breakdown. The legs seem a little more locked in. I'll double check that and the tail as well.

    Is it just my vid player, or is the sound missing from the intro?

    So I guess if I buy him....he stays MIB, because I wanted to be able to put him together for display and still be able to box him back up....sucks a little bit....now I may not get him, and I definitely can't afford 2.

    I see the arms can pop back off, and obviously the wings, like Draego's....but you can even take Draego back apart all the way if you wanted. Any further attempts to take his legs, tail and body back apart and reveal the findings would be greatly appreciated and help me decide further....

    And I was really close on the dimensions of him, I guessed like 16" sitting and 22" standing, I would really like to get him, he does look awesome, sucks he can't be standing though without help....but if I do get him out and pop him together....he will be sitting.

    Now I really have deliberation to do over the weekend....

    It's not just you. For some reason the sound is missing from the intro on the upload. The rest of the video seems fine, which is the important part. But I have no idea why my video file as sound on the intro, but it vanished on the upload. I'm going to check into this later today to see if I can figure something out.

    Oh I'm not saying you did anything wrong...it just confused me and I don't have access to watch videos at work.
