      Wicked cool! More accurate but still very retro.
      You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

          Glad to finally see it...As much as I love the Gorn I got from James...I guess I was being naive and got anxious with high expectations...I expected to see some sort of new Hulk-body hybrid instead of a skinny T2 green body.
          As I look at the pic more, his calves look bigger than a T2 leg. Are the lower legs closer to what James conjured up?

              Well I have to say he looks better but I still like the custom off hulk body.....Eyes need to be silver, did they not see the show?

                Looks fine to me. A nice compromise between Captain Dunsels figure and the realities of EMCE/Diamonds need to keep these figures profitable. A completely new body mold for one character would probably drive the cost of the Gorn through the roof, or require Diamond to move a lot more product. I can live with this Gorn quite nicely. Make a fine squad of troops to be commanded by my Dunsel Gorn.

                  I really have to agree. It's a lot to expect an entirely new body mold for one figure. Unless you actually have the Hulk license it's hard to justify. That head is fantastic, the figure will look great with the set.

                    I think it looks FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!!

                    BRAVO to EMCE !!!!!!!!!!

                    About using a T-2 body ------
                    The real gorn himself wasn't really all that ripped.
                    I think a T-2 is fine

                        That's odd.

                        You already had a GORN in your possession that you really liked...
                        why would you get rid of it?

                          Hopefully we will get to see more pix soon. I'd like to see the legs more closely. I really didn't expect a Hulk body, although it would have been cool. The sculpt definitely goes a long way towards correcting a Mego mistake. Hopefully the Chinese can find a better uniform material for the production run. Great pattern, but I'd love to see more shine and pattern in the outfit.

                          Bravo to James and Doc (and anyone else who contributed) on making this figure the right way instead of the easy way.

                          Combine this with Sulu, and you have definitely made this the most anticipated release for me, even more than the Rommie. Two "new" figures at once is great. I can only hope you keep them coming in 2009. Mirror Mirror, anyone?

                          FYI - I'm claiming first dibs on making a Lizard custom with this figure, just to make the circle complete.

                            Man, that looks great. I can live with the type two body. Its more like what mego would have done for a more accurate Gorn, instead of the fake Lizard poser they made.
