  • MOTU Giants & Gwildor Final Package Video

    New video from Toyguru promoting the MOTU 12??? Giants: He-Man, Skeletor, Stratos & Beast Man. The video also gives a quick look at Gwildor in his final packaging, and a sneak peek at a large weapon from a potential 5th MOTU Giant figure.

        I'll wait until I see them at big lots. Way overpriced and not exactly vintage reproduction. Couldnt even get a collector clamshell or the right back art.

        Good idea, bad execution. Prediction, Zodac will stay in prototype hell.

            Doh!!

            Did you see TG's look when he pulled out the Zodac gun?

            I don't hate the guy either....just don't believe anything he says while he's peddling.

            I literally laughed out loud. He has this really "crazy" look in his eyes. I even I get the feeling he said that really slow, as to allow time for screen cap & meme makers time to grab that. I think he might enjoys the attention, and this is demonstrative of it IMO. (That isn't so much of a judgement BTW, it's just an observation)

          I saw the figure in person today at a comic book shop in Toronto. It looks OK for a large scale version of the 2001 Commemorative figure, but the head fails to capture the look of the original 80s figure. One other thing that caught my eye was the scratch marks on the sword. It looks like the sword was sprayed with a matte paint, which seems odd because the grey power sword shouldn't need any paint at all.

            I dunno cap, they have been reported to not be able to hold the swords. Thats just sad and they seem half assed all the way around.

            I wanted to buy them but he-man just seems jacked up and skelly didn't originally have the right arms.

            Now I worry that stratos & beastman might come out top heavy. $75 seems awfully steep and Matty conveniently didn't send out samples.

              I was with Captain Atkin at the store today and I had the figure in my hand. It can hold the sword. The weapons are sprayed with some sort of matte paint. No idea why, as they should match the armor which isn't painted. It should have just been grey plastic. My guess is they sprayed the weapons so they wouldn't be to shiny, but the weapons we had as kids were nice and shiny, so I don't know why they bothered. You just can never win with Mattel.

            These are garbage. I'll buy one from Big Lots for $2 a year from now.

                  I think those were better quality and truer to the originals. Seriously. Not joking.

                The giants are a disappointment. Overall the sculpts are just off enough to be annoying, but He-Man's head is terrible. The others look good enough, but when they've screwed up the main character what is the point in getting the others?

                Gwildor, on the other hand, looks great. I hope there isn't some major manufacturing screw up, but at this point I'm not holding my breath.

                  Haha $75 for plastic turds... At 3:09 where Neitlich reaches into his ass, and pulls out the Zodac gun- the look on his face shows that he himself isnt convinced of those things being marketable... Many people are willing to throw away a large sums of money, on whatever garbage Mattel creates- and Neitlich then pushes it to them like a street pharmacist on some corner. The people that are willing to buy these at $75, should instead take their $75 and spend it on food for the homeless (Im talking to the bleeding-heart and self-righteous-P.C. ORG-types)... Its time for them to practice what they pretend to preach. Maybe then that kind of money would be put to much better use, than buying plastic turds that just so happen to have a MOTU logo on their boxes.

                    If Neitlich took a dump and slapped on the "MOTU Classics" logo on it,people (Orger's especially) would still buy it!

                  I'd buy the giant figures, even though the paint jobs on He-Man and Skeletor's heads kinda bug me. I still brutally despise Gwildor though....*shudders*

                    Why? Why would you buy an inferior overpriced cash grab? I would buy a Skeletor for $15 - but just as a display piece for a couple ideas I have.

                    Why not? I mean, I'm not spending $75 per figure, to hell with that. I'll wait awhile and see if I can get one or two at a decent price on e-bay or something. Inferior or not, they're certainly no worse than the MOTU knock-offs I've seen and I want as many of those as I can can find too.

                  Gwildor in that huge package is a bloody joke. They could have easily fit him into a normal size bubble, but are using this huge one to justify an inflated price. What a rip off!

                  Oh, and a HATE this figure and this character. Sorry, but Gwildor to me is the stupidest thing about MOTU. I'd rather have a Kevin or Julie figure than Gwildor.

                    I'm cool with Gwildor, not so much his price tag. I just don't see the $35 Value on him when Mantenna, Dactus, Draego were Normal priced items. Then again, i don't see the $25 value in UNO, or Madame Razz.

                              everyone is so focused on the head because it's noticeable, but look at the musculature. It lacks a great many details of the original sculpts. I wish we had someone willing to do more side by comparison photos to showcase this point. Gentle Giant preserves the details when the blow up the original figure. Having held some, They are amazing. Photos never truly do them justice, even though they always look amazing when photographed. The jumbo vintage Kenner quality have an almost animated style quality to them because of this. MOTU, odd proportions as they may be, are generally more "realistic" in style of sculpt. These jumbo reproductions are more animated in style. It's shame they didn't try to go for a FILMation style aesthetic with these Jumbo figures.

                              I really do wish I could enjoy them...
