Just got my Granamyr today and he is flawless! At first I was a bit skeptical about spending $100 on it, but now that I see him here, I can say that he's worth every penny! Really a beautiful sculpt and paint job! I can't stop staring at it!
Contact me if you have MOTU Merchandise Items for sale or trade! Please view a sampling of what I am looking for Here:
Granamyr arrived the day before yesterday. I used the hairdryer as instructed and nothing broke. I'm not sure if he suffers from the bobblehead syndrome or if I didn't push his head far enough down (I didn't want to use too much force and break the brittle looking neck peg), but I'm not going to meddle with it since it's in a nice position and I won't be playing around with him. Anyway, once fully assembled, he truly is a sight to behold
There are however some minor flaws in the paint apps: he has a little paint rubbed from the left side of his chest and a very small streak of black on his right leg, also some black is shining through on his backside. I'm not sure if the paint underneath is black and the surface coat has been applied too thinly in that spot or if it's just a smudge of black paint. Anyway, it's hardly noticeable on a figure this large, so I'm not that fussed about it and it's certainly not worth the hassle of getting him replaced nor the risk of receiving figure that might have more serious problems.
Anyway, I still want a GREEN Granamyr: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...olators-unite-!!!
Come on, people, show your support. How cool would it be to have the two of them sitting next to each other ?

I've got everything that I need, right in front of me! Life's a happy song people!
Fear is faith in failure
No chance of getting a green one.
Real friends are better than plastic ones.
A green variant would need a new head, the Alcala face has more wrinkles and looks way older... I won`t support just a repaint
My Granamyr arrived on Wednesday and he is absolutely perfect. I inspected him thoroughly prior to assembly and found all sockets to be free from breaks, bends, etc. His articulation is nice and tight, and his paint apps are flawless. This is absolutely the most amazing MOTUC piece to date.
Also, I'd rather them do some retooling and give us the opportunity to purchase Sorrowful over a Granamyr variant.
I got my Granamyr this week as well..and with all the various QC issues people were reporting, I was a bit leery...but he snapped together with no problem, and I have him sitting on my desk in my office. I've had several people come up and take a look at him, as he does make a rather imposing figure. lol. I wish he had the ball jointed shoulders so his arms could do more than move forward and a degree back, but oh well. I think he looks awesome.

I received mine a couple days ago. I can't really speak on QC issues or anything as he's MISB and staying that way. I was, however extremely p****d off with the USPS. They left the package on the front porch, which is the idea, however when I came home and got to the box I was fuming. The mailer box was still in perfect shape and all, but the shipping box it came in was half opened and the invoice hanging out for God and man to behold. Now I don't know about you, but to have my info hanging out of a half opened box is grounds for a jolly stomping of the mailman.
Got my Granamyr today! Even though I am a MOC/MIB collector, I opened the box up to inspect him. He seems to be fine - all the proper parts - no cracks. The Upper-front right corner of the box was a bit torn but it's minor. Wish I could put him together but I know he can't be disassembled so back into the white mailer he goes.
Got ours a few days ago and just posted our review photos. Everything was fine and there was no damage or cracking. It's a fantastic figures!

Granamyr has arrived and made himself at home.
"Don't crowd me boys!"
Just got my "order confirmation" for my replacement Granamyr. I'm cautiously optimistic considering the number of people who have since posted that they had no problems.
Ok, I finally got home last night, after a couple of weeks of being away, and a couple of boxes were waiting for me! Granamyr had been indoors for a few days but I still made sure to use a blow dryer on him after carefully inspecting all the parts. Fortunately, nothing was broken, everything popped in nicely, and the only piece that gave me a little bit of trouble was his head. Overall, he looks great and was well worth it...He looks like he jumped out of a Filmation episode!
Oh yeah, one of the boxes also contained Mo-Larr, the last MOTUC figure that I needed in order to be 100% caught up. I said I'd feed him to Granamyr if I didn't like him but he's actually pretty cool and nicely sculpted, so he'll get to roam free throughout Eternia, heheh!
The only QC thing to note was my own fault. I still need to find a good place for Granamyr because the shelf I put him on was too narrow and he fell off! He didn't land too hard and thankfully there was stuff in the way to break his fall but his tail popped off. I was expecting the worst but nothing was broken and the tail fit back in, good as new. There were no paint chips and Granamyr is now sitting in a more secure area!
In the end, I'm very happy with my Granamyr...He's a huge figure and beautifully sculpted. Big thanks goes out to the Four Horsemen for the amazing work they put into a character that I never would've expected to see in MOTUC. Thanks also goes out to my fellow collectors here who warned us about the issues with the cold, brittle plastic. I hope everyone who needs a replacement gets theirs soon!
Truly an Epic figure.
I'm still blown away how massive & perfect he is.

Got him today and I'm superstoked. No notable QC issues, but had to pay a hefty customs ransom.
Now we need a Treasure Trove Weapons Pak with golden weapons and chests with coins and book stacks to decorate his lair. (The weapons and books would be repaints of existing molds, whereas the chest full of coins could be later reused as an accessory for Plundor.)
Then Crystal Frozen Man-at-Arms and Sky Tree as SDCC exclusives.

Thankfully he has arrived and after inspecting the "weak" points everything seems OK. No to go read the tutorial on how to assemble him and proceed with caution...
