So it could be about £350 for uk customers?!?
Wow that sucks for international purchasers. I am wondering what number BBTS will put in for the pre-order. Because I think they have smarter shipping solutions than Digital River.
Is Mattel repsonsible for the shipping quotes or is that Digi Riv?
I'm hoping some resellers here in the states are hoping on this opportunity to ship to the international fans at a much cheaper rate.
This is killing me! I know it's expensive to ship overseas, but THIS expensive?! Really?!!! :(
I don't understand how shipping in the US only goes up about $30 compared to a single figure. Just to Canada it goes from 9 to 70. Overseas fans should just check on UPS/USPS how much shipping is for something that weighs 25lbs and about 2 feet in all directions to see if that's close to actual cost.
So is it only charging $0.00 to your card, like they said it would?
The shipping cannot be right as they aren't using UPS next year
but if it is, then this is managements way of appeasing fans by claiming to be willing to produce a castle greyskull, however as the sub was so dependent on international subbers then they knew that a high shipping cost would deter them and thus mean no CG is built, this is why we only have some drawings and not actual sculpts - no cost to Mattel but yet do a fan service thus management have "tried"
I wonder when the indicator will be updated. I didn't do the sub, so I am unfamiliar with how often it updated. Daily?
got it. bought it. didnt see the shipping change from the 36 to the 190 odd. and you know what? i dont care! ITS CASTLE GRAYSKULL for after all
At the center of the universe, at the border between the light and the dark stands Castle Grayskull. For countless ages, the Sorceress of Grayskull has kept this universe in harmony, but the armies of darkness do not rest and the capture of Grayskull is evermost in their minds. For to those who control Grayskull will come the power. The power to be supreme, the power to be almighty, the power to be Masters of the Universe.
and thats what its all about!
+2 more! Just ordered mine! No charge even showing on my account...
Email confirmation received!
Good to go here!
IF these shipping prices are correct (and not another DR's mess-up), then I guess the Castle Grayskull project will have many obstacles to overcome before making it to the minimum required...
I'll wait for Toyguru's reaction before writing my definite opinion about this. But I can say I'm not happy at all. It seems like they're now trying all they can to drag this line into the grave...
Matty lured and forced many fans to take a sub a couple of months ago. And they're doing it again with CG. It's not a very good omen, if you ask me...
So trying to bring some light back... This castle is for the classics for sure... But just imagine how your original vintage figures will look on this Castle!!! WOW!!! :hmgrin: :skgrin:
I was never going to get one (as I hate vehicles and playsets) but it really does suck for those that do want one. The high shipping cost may be the final nail. I also get that creepy feeling when you look at what they have shown "design" wise and say that it may change. I keep reading the Back to the Future hoverboard stuff and hope it doesn't go the same way.
CG has something the Hoverboard does not...the Four Horsemen!
Have some faith Kid Canada, they're not going to screw up CG, it's the flagship piece!
