Mattel has posted several images of the upcoming Masters of the Universe Classics Gygor deluxe figure on their Facebook page. This time around fans are not only getting a first look at this huge menacing gorilla warrior's package and bio but Mattel has also included comparison shots of Gygor next to the original Big Jim figure from the 80's and the DCUC Gorilla Grodd which proves that Gygor is a 100% new sculpt. Here's what Matty had to say regarding this never-before made figure:
So one of the big things we wanted to do for the MOTUC line is to introduce figures that never quite made it into the vintage line. Much like He-Ro, Gygor the gorilla made it as a prototype into the vintage line but no toy has been made...until now.
Originally based on the "Big Jim Gorilla" (much like Battlecat or Zoar) Gygor was set to be a large gorilla figure in the 1982 line. While he was cut due to logistics, we are proud to present the first ever MOTU Gygor figure in the new Classics line. Truly, this is what the MOTUC line is all about.
Gygor will be the third oversized beast in the 2010 line and will go on sale September 15th. He will not be part of the subscription (but the beasts will be added to the subs in 2011 per fan demand!)
The final oversized beast/pack for 2010 will be an army builder two pack shown off at our fan panel at SDCC on Friday July 23 at 1:00 in room 29ABC. See you all at Mattypalooza 2010~!
