The elevator will go from side to side instead of up and down :hmeek: :sklol:
A new job. Seriously, just the timing compared to my career's bad luck and an uncertain 2013. Otherwise, looks great and the price seems reasonable.
For all the fence sitters, I read and understand your concerns.. it's quite simple though. .if you want it,you take the chance.. just depends on how bad you want it. .
I think the playset with the foam mock-up and the size comparison with the vintage castle including the statement by the 4H is enough. I'm in. :tjeek:

I find it hilarious that there are fans that are still confident that Mattel would stop making questionable "design choices" :hmlol:
"Consistency is the mother of a reputation"
The fact that the possibility of Mattel screwing up something fierce on such a high ticket item is a real concern with a lot of fans, especially international ones like me.
And with such high shipping costs, I wonder if mattel would even be open to pay for the re-shipping if a replacement is needed.
Yeah, not sure how the 'year and a half' was calculated....... Wasn't Frosta available less than a month ago?
Answer : a miracle, becauseQuote:
If You Haven't Pre-Ordered Grayskull what would it take secure your purchase ?
1) I don't want to use Matty's crappy website and disservices
2) I don't want to buy a $ 250 item based only on vague statements and on a poor and empty foam rendition of Castle Grayskull
3) There are expensive shipping costs, and STILL no international distribution centers
I have ordered mine, but the thing i hear most from peeps I try to recruit is that they either want to see it first or they think it won't go through. But, it won't go through unless they pre-order, so it's a double edged sword....
If Toyguru said if the minimum goal is met they will look into a Point Dread/Talon Fighter add on set as a preorder and fill the thermometer they would definately do a Point DreadTalon Fighter add on set as a preorder, then I will totally buy in. Also float there are numbers needed, do not need to be specific numbers, that need to be reached to green light a Snake Mountain set.
Finally, if they release only the front piece with an articulated jaw bridge for 80$ without any further action features for displaying...
I did a mock order buying 2 to Australia. It came up to $730. That's ridiculous! I really want a CGC but at that price i'll stick to my vintage one.
I am one person that has not pre-ordered an Castle Grayskull, and I do not know what it would take for me to secure a purchase. Don't get me wrong, if it was very simple for me to pre order a Grayskull, I would have have done that on day one. I do love the plans that have been made to come with the Castle, how it would look and everything that goes with it. If I had to say money, at this moment in time is the issue for me, but that does not help on securing a purchase. There's uncertainty as well in my mind. I have thought in my mind back and forth if I should try to take a chance or do nothing. $250.00 is a lot for me to think about! :hmeek: If and it's a big IF...That I do decide to pre-order a Grayskull play set it will most likely be after Matty's goal is reached on November 12. However at this moment in time I don't know what to do. Not sure what will happen. :hmtung:
LONG LIVE MOTU/MOTUC'S
If I had a job, stable income or won the lottery I would totally pre-order a CG.
Don't think that will happen by the 12th though! :sksad:
People, you have one year to save for this thing. It's up to you but just so you know there is plenty of time to save for this thing. Got my order in so I'm doing my part
I'm continuing to try and persuade people to pre-order this end-all-be-all of MOTU collectibles over on my blog-- http://toynewsnetwork.blogspot.com/
Remember people, if you live in the US, you only need to put aside $25 a month from now until next Nov to cover the cost of this thing delivered to your door!!
Plan! Save! It's not that hard and it will be soooooo worth it!
I SOOOO WANT TO PRE ORDER, BUT I GET A VALIDATION ERROR AND NEITHER MATTY NOR MY BANK CAN ASSIST ME!!!!:hmsad:
When I watch Scott's video, I don't really think "Man, I sure would love a $300 Castle Grayskull playset in plastic!", I think "Man, I sure wish they'd color the inside of that posterboard and sell it to me for 20 bucks."
