    I like the style of package but I would prefer it if it had been about 2/3's the size. I'm running out of space as it is!

    This video looks like a rush up PR try to reconcile with the fans.
    Not sold on the figure, even less with such huge pointless packaging

    The video is pretty cool and does a good job showcasing the set. But I still just can't feel anything but indifference toward this one.

    I don't dislike the figure, but it's just not for me.

    It looks great in the package, and if I was a MOC collector, I'd be all over this like stink on poop. But like others have said, the fig itself doesn't fit as a loose display piece imo.

    Good video. Figure does look pretty cool with all his parts. Something about him still doesn't excite me much - maybe the colors? Not sure. Still a great SDCC idea and I'm already thinking about how to use up the extra parts he comes with. Snake Man-at-arms might just be repruposed as tank top... Not sure though. Will have to see how the colors look together.
    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!

    I like the packaging more than the figure. Cool that he did the video though for people that do like Vykron.

    I love that TG points out the 'boots' are labelled L and R so you don't get confused, now if only that same principle would translate to the assembly in China.

    I wasn't sold on this figure until the video. I'm now really looking forward to him. I hope the extra armor pieces will fit on my extra mo-larr.
    Could we get some Meteorbs, Please???!!!

    It was cool of Scott to do the video and show how Vykron works. Unfortunately I'm still not excited about this figure. I will most likely pick up one since I'll be at SDCC but I for sure don't need 3.

    Did anyone else notice the TOD Sorceress Orb Stand on the table? Was it just me or did the bottom look a lot more blue than what was seen at PowerCon and Toy Fair. At TF is was a very light translucent blue on the bottom but in this video is was more of a royal blue.

    Maybe TG has been reading the Steve Jobs bio.

    I still like this exclusive, and I am sorry to see it's had such a bad reception online.

    I really don't think the clip on parts look so good though and the barbarian needs a longer cape, but I appreciate this video and seeing Scott handling the toys. I admit that I'm glad this isn't a three pack because, as I found with the sisters, if just one of the three has a defect then it's a bigger pain to replace than if it were just a single figure. Plus maybe I can use a regular He-Man for the Tank Top version.

    Due to all the negativity TG has been forced to shoot this video, but the pack still looks cheap. Instead of clip on parts, I prefer interchangeable full boots.

    He is very afraid to another epic fail like Mo-Larr set.

    Im still tired of large package items, because the shipping costs also increases a lot. I hope the Matty versions come with a short package version.

    I'm REALLY happy that they have made figures out of these prototypes. I was really hoping for them, yet I'm disappointed with the execution. First I think it should have been 3 characters, not 1. And second, I think the Barbarian is cool, the Tank head is cool, but the 4H really failed on the astronaut guy. After a few days of living with it, I can get behind the new helmet and understand the design choice, but that diaper is just too much. It looks bad, real bad!!

    But the issue will be that the legs will be reversed to make him POP!
