oh the things I would do to own this. the bad, terrible, unspeakable things I would do to own this.
well to be fair, i don't think we know how much this would cost at this size, so if they do end up doing the Castle, the sculpt is going to be tied to the price moreso than what they want to do (Tytus).
Holy crap on stick, that is amazing!!
This is the most professional looking home made job I have seen.
And yes, I too would expect Mattel to give is as good if not better.
Amazing stuff! I want one!! No really...I want one!! :hmeek::hmeek:
I think that is the PERFECT size.
I would be thrilled to get any version of Castle Grayskull in our MOTUC's collection!!! I think realistically, we are most likely to see the facade version if the line continues kicking tail for another year or so. Bring it on!!!
I can't wait to see a Castle Grayskull!! I got to thinking, they are releasing the weapons rack next year. I think it was mentioned there will also be diorama pieces coming soon too. What if those diorama pieces will be the throne, the dungeon, the computer terminal with spaceman suit, the laser cannon and flag, etc... all to keep costs down. Then they can just release an empty castle and we'll have everything to go in it already??!! I'd be all for that!
I can't get over how big it is...
...I really would love to see one of the sides done in this scale.
I fully support a Castle Grayskull in the MOTUC line, sign me up for one :hmgrin:
zombihamma's Castle Grayskull is definably amazing!
too funny, man... shut it down.
In the last WTFWTK Toyguru says:
"If we took the energy and time to have a Grayskull sculpted, we would likely sell it as a whole. It would actually take twice the amount of logistics to break it up, and in the end that might kill the concept. If we did a playset, we would not break it up to help streamline the project"
But then we just saw Castle Grayskull's own weapons rack at SDCC... i.e. a part of the old playset which, according to Toyguru's own words, should not come separated from the whole castle in the event the latter is made!
Could this mean that Castle Grayskull is just around the corner??
I could see that being something they save for a "movie year release" but I hope not, I hope we see it soon! Late 2011 early 2012 please? I kinda like the idea of it coming in smaller sets that you add on but I can see why they don't want to do it that way, can you imagine it come buying day and getting the WSOD and end up only getting 3 of the 5 pieces over the course of a year, what good is 3/5 of castle grayskull? I mean I think we'll definitely see one, I can't imagine Mattel leaving the object that the entire line is centered on, can't wait to see the 4H take on it!
Haha good point!!! If/When they do Castle Grayskull, I think they're going to have to put a lower cap on it, like at 2 or 3, yeah that sucks for fans who want one MISB, one open, and then one for each of their kids, but that would ensure that more of the castles end up in the fans hands than scalpers loading their carts up and beating us all to the punch come sale day. I really don't want to pay 2-3x the price on ebay just because I got WSOD'd on sale day for 20 minutes and ended up empty handed
Unfortunately I am not very excited for a Grayskull or other "big" playset.
Mattel would charge enormous amounts of shipping for it to reach us international fans, and we'd then have to pay an assload of customs and fees to even get to collect it. I can't afford to sink that sort of money into one single toy :(
Castle Grayskull is the bonus figure for April.
Have they explained that weapons pack, as in how it is going to be released?
All I know is that they have told us over and over again that we aren't getting playsets with this line. Not that we should stop demanding them, though. :skwink:
