Now that the back shot image of Grizzlor was shown at Wizard World Philly, can you tell us if he will be released this year or will be part of the 2011 Club Eternia schedule?
We are very excited about Chief Carnivus as the September figure for MOTUC. Can fans look forward to a few 200x-based character every year from now on?He will be part of the 2010 subscription, and will be shown at SDCC. The reason we snuck him into Philly is because he appears on the cross sell of Mo-Larr and we know fans will see him sooner then SDCC!
The Gygor figure will make a great base body for 200x Shadow Beasts later on down the line but will they be in the same scale or a bit smaller?Yes, every year we will try to do one or two 200X characters like Carnivus or Marzo. We are deliberately spreading out all the characters so each year has a nice mix of vintage MOTU, POP, New Adventures, mini comic and 200X characters.
When you eventually get to Battle Lion, will he use the same body as Battle Cat and Panthor or will the Horsemen sculpt a brand new larger body for him that is more true to his size in the MYP cartoons?If Shadow Beast was made using Gygor’s body it would be about the same size since they could potentially share the same body with some new parts (head, arms, feet, etc…). Stay tuned, nothing to confirm now.
Since it has been confirmed that there will be a MOTUC army-builder 2-pack in November, can we look forward to seeing this at Comic-Con next month?Much as Grayskull is the same size as He-Man, Battle Lion would use the Battle Cat buck. In the Classics line we are using the vintage proportions, not the 200X proportions. You will also see Whiplash and Beastman are the same size as any other figure, they are not larger as they are in the 200X anime style.
