    Enjoy...

    Looks pretty good. Seeing Gwildor and Blade together at the end makes me wish that they would have gotten the rights to make the other movie characters.

    Can't wait to see how Saurod turned out!

      I'm so disappointed with the messy hair/beard paint application, especially for an overpriced figure like him!... I wonder why Dan just overlooked this issue like everything was perfect! Probably he would've raised hell if his beloved Mosquitor had suffered from such an imperfection!

        I would have to have the figure in hand to judge the hair/beard properly. Dan uses a bright white background in his videos, and its sometimes hard to make out some of the finer details on the more detailed figures because of the bright light. Hopefully I won't have to customize this figure.

      What about this picture from the Fwoosh?:

        The red background in this photo makes the details on the beard look bad (as well as the skin). Gwildor just isn't very photogenic I suppose... lol. I may end up taking a paintbrush to the hair and beard to fix him up, as this picture makes it look like he just finished a bucket of ribs.

        You see, I'm not sure if this was actually a deliberate paint job (instructed) or was just an awful application by the factory that went wrong or unchecked!

      That thing is a wreck.

        That's probably because Dan doesn't see anything wrong! I guess it's an attempt to show how light Gwildor's hair gets at the edges.

          Light at the edges?! More like a paint rub off!... Whatever it is, it looks messy and unattractive!

          You think this is messy and unattractive DO NOT watch this guy drink BBQ sauce.

          I will say the Gwildor looks better than I thought he would ever turn out. So that is a plus. Packaging him with a "prototype key" was pretty stupid though. It seems the only reason this was included was because (a) it was cheap to make and (b) it gave Scott an excuse to put him in a larger package and charge us more. They could have included free weapons based on the movie designs (He-Man, Man-at-Arms, Beastman and Skeletor swords as an example) in place of this thing. I am curious to see how the key would look being held by one of the GIANT figures, or by Tytus or Megator. Gwildor never used a giant key like that in the movie or mini comics, so it feels very much out of place.

            I ****ing hate this character and this figure. Absolute garbage. And such a kick in the nuts to make him cost more because of that stupid key that NOBODY asked for or wanted.

            Oh, and pretty hilarious how Orko got a pack in Prince Adam and was still normal price and size, but somehow this figure needs a larger package and increased price. Total bullshit.

              Orko was normal sized and price with Prince Adam? Pray tell which toy line was that. I just have missed it.

            It's the awesome deco maaaaan, don't you get it?! We're so dumb to believe it, but with the right weed we could even believe his cosmic key might actually work too! Flower Power to our universe, maaaan!
            Whoa!!!... Too much weed! :skeletormes:

              Not really, I've never smoked anything in my life, however being at concerts and metal shows, I can tell how it feels like, maaaan!

            The only purpose for the oversized packaging I can think of is, to give buyers the impression of a higher valued figure, which Gwildor is not.

            I said it elsewhere, I could completely live without this character, simply because I don't like him. The only thing I'm interested in are the cosmic keys.

              "What a hideous cry perhaps I can communicate with the foreign creature...Moo? Mooooo. MOo



              What? Oh, I'm coming I'm coming... MOO!"

              The extra price IS total bullshit. The one bright spot of having a subscription is that the month to month per figure price can be evened out over a whole year. Getting taken for the Ass on Spinnerella and Gwildor makes Modulok and Mermista feel like more of a bargain, both of whom have wider appeal then Gwildor and Spinerlla. Surly not ALL charecters are produced in the same amount? That probally factored into how we got Matty'd in this way. Though that's going to be more true for non subscribers then it is going to be for subscribers. One more reason to sub? Yeesh! Even Skeletor isn't that manipulative...

              :/

              It's size is odd. It's clearly a reference to the unproduced role play Cosmic Key toy from 1987. I get the feeling that the idea is,

              "Prototype Key" Giant sized.
              "Beta Key" Movie colored Cosmic Key (Preternia He-Man. (this one gets destroyed?)
              "Standard" Cosmic Key -Toy colors (Gwildor)
              Portable Cosmic Key - The "mighty" Specter." Backwards enginered from smashed parts of Beta Key? Gwildor summed to join Time Agents to repair gear?

              ...I can live with that if something like that turns out to be the case, however it's still two key too many IMO.

                They should have got rid of the big Key and packaged him with the Cow!

                The cow, The ribs, the grappling hook, the Key locator, bust most of all the makeshift cosmic key with the 80's keyboard would have been better then the big key that wasn't even in the movie. Heck, I'd take a boa and pimp glasses. It would be fumy if they used Barbie cloths or something for that LOL.

              He should've looked more "Classicized"
