*Gwildor is a completely new sculpt and he looks awesome. Seriously, if you like the character's appearance in the film you'll be more than pleased. The character's robes and various little tools and doodads are all excellently painted and sculpted. This is an extremely elaborate costume that wouldn't look out of place next to other move based action figures from NECA. The Four Horsemen did an excellent job in capturing Barty's portrayal of Gwildor.
*Gwildor's vintage toy based cosmic key is a repaint of Preternia Disguise He-Man's and it looks great. You can never have enough cosmic key's floating around and Gwildor can easily hold this one in his left hand. The staff is also quite intricate. It features more paint and detail than most other MOTUC accessories. I'm not sure why Gwildor got this extra special treatment, but I'm glad he did!
* And here's the movie based cosmic key. It's quite large (nearly as tall as Gwildor) and features an elaborate, weathered paint job and swiveling tuning forks. It stands flat on its base which is a benefit since it's difficult for anyone to carry this thing.
*There is a sculpted carrying strap on the cosmic key, but it's just that: A sculpted element. I would have really liked the ability for characters to carry the cosmic key via a strap.
*Gwildor doesn't have as much articulation as a standard figure. He has far less. Having less articulation doesn't bother me much but I do wish his shoulders and head had a better range of motion. Also, while I like that he has a gesturing hand, I think I would have opted for another gripping hand so that he could carry both his staff and the cosmic key at the same time.
*Since Gwildor was marketed as a deluxe release, I don't feel bad wishing that an extra smaller accessory had been included. Personally, I would have opted for his grappling hook or a bucket of Robby's ribs. For a smaller figure and a more expensive release, a little bit extra would have softened the burn.
