Granita, part of Super7's second wave of Classics.
Granita only appeared in the She-Ra cartoon, with her other rock warrior folks: Rokkon and Stonedar. Like the other rock warriors of Geolon, she's a pacifist, though the rock people end up having to fight anyway.
Granita was one that I hadn't heard of until I joined He-Man.org and saw the constant clamoring for Mattel to make her into a figure. She was a pretty popular choice! Took a long time and a change of company, but she's finally here, and she's...well she's kinda awkward. But she looks nice.
Grantia falls in the same holes as the previous two rock warriors - the rock transformation had all the fun sucked out of it in the Classicsization process. The vintage figures just folded over and BAM, you got a rock. This is more of a clip, a fold, an adjustment, a scrunch, another adjustment, and BaMuh..buh...kind of a rock, if you did it right. Sadly, Granita is actually worse, because her rock parts aren't as sturdy, they're heavier, thicker plastic (so they fall off), and they didn't allow it all to clip together like with Rokkon and Stonedar. On top of that, she can't hold her gun-thing very well, because they didn't add a groove for her thumb to fit in to...like they did with Rokkon and Stonedar. It's like they didn't look at the previous figures to at least see how it had been done.
Granita is so frustrating with the rock parts, but kinda fun without them! I can't deny that the sculpt is all aces and she looks fantastic. The color choices are on-point, too. I just wish the whole rock feature was fun. Hard to say if this is a recommendation or not. Probably yes, if you really wanted Granita, because look at her! It's a great looking figure! But if you're looking for fun...eh. Skip it. #toysandtomfoolery#toys#actionfigures#mattel#super7#granita#motu#mastersoftheuniverse#mastersoftheuniverseclassics#filmation#rockwarriors#rockpeople#heman#shera#alexxmotu
These 3 arrived from a Facebook seller today. Always breaks my heart when i see people have to sell due to financial troubles. We all love what we collect and its not easy to give up what we love. One mans troubles is anothers good fortune though.
I am coming close to my original goal of collecting all remakes of the vintage line in classics. The Super 7 figures have side tracked me slightly but we are back on track now and should have them all by early next year.
Who else has them all????😍😍😍😍 #motu#mastersoftheuniverse#motuclassics#mastersoftheuniverseclassics#heman#toycollector#toys
