This will keep the anticipation (and the free press on toy sites) going as Grayskull is made.

    What say all of you?
    Yeah, they should be doing that now. It's kind of a no-brainer, I wonder why they aren't. Mattel should be doing a lot more to advertise this thing.

    I would love to see some glimpses of more designs in progress, like you said. Even small ones, a little each day.

    A few more pictures or ideas or something would be nice...

    I know they aren't actually going to be WORKING on it till we hit the minimum.

    I don't want to be an unrealistic optimist, but we still have 10 days. And:

    • We don't know if BBTS and other retailers have ordered yet.
    • We don't know how accurate the thermometer is. I don't want to say Matty is lying, but we also cannot be sure that the latest update reflects figures as of the moment it was updated. Maybe they only ran a report through last Weds or so.
    • It's in Matty's interest to keep us guessing and pulling for the playset.
    • We don't know whether Matty might still go through with it if we miss the goal by a hair or so.
    • We didn't know we were 95% there for the sub this year until the last day of sales, and we ended up at 135%

    That being said — order now if you want one!

    It's cool, I totally understand.




    I know TG has been saying that the "my sub" page that should be up in a few weeks, will allow you to manage things like this. So I would guess yes, if you order others, you can arrange to have them ship at once.
    I'm not TG, I don't work for Mattel, but I know TG wants to put more power like this in our hands and that the "my sub" page is a step in the right direction.

    Lastly, I'm tapping into my old advertising days... Feel free to use or share this anywhere you want, let's get the word out! (see the full sized piece and my write up at www.natebaertsch.tumblr.com

    They are selling pre-orders or a pre-order. They are most likely waiting until they have a final figure on the 12th to order one order and not have over ordered by too much. Personally I don't think it would make sense for them to place an order this early but they still could've I guess.

    I bet that if this goes through it will help convince the execs to approve more skus for the 2014 sub. So maybe we can get 12 or 14 figures next year.

    I would have agreed with you had we hit the minimum goal within 1 day... but with it dragging out yet again just like how the last sub drive went.... I dont see it now.

    Plus we already have the last sub drive almost not going thru without ppl double an triple ordering sub's just to push it thru... so a increased SKU sub wont happen now I think. We will still be lucky if we can get 12 figures for a 2014 sub... an sadly, I think that may be it for the MOTUC line. As if 2014 doesn't go thru easier than 2014 did... ya.. I figure they wont bother with 2015 sub at all.

    I would have thought that TG would have kept up the pressure to sell Grayskull, but things must be going pretty good, sales-wise. He was practically making podcasts and videos every other day to sell the sub.

    I'm with you on this train of thought. It can't be a lost cause yet.

    I agree. we'll probably see a jump in the meter the last few days. Of course that meter may not be completely accurate. As long as I get Castle Grayskull I really don't care. MOTU may not be the main thing I collect but I committed the past couple years, I'm committed for 2013 so I'm in it till the end.

    After the hoverboard, I just cant pre-order and bite the bullet. It was too much of a let down and too many changes that no one wanted.

    This is what scares me the most. I fear certain features (selling points) will be *costed* out!

    I wouldn't worry about the thermometer. It is going to happen, as it is more than halfway there and will suddenly jump up to 110% come the 13th.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I completely agree with Dr Kain above - the thermometer updates and news bites have been few and far between which makes me think we are already nearly there and this is happenning regardless.

    Scott has been on vacation. So I wouldn't use that as a indicator of anything either way.

    I may end up eating my words but yeah…I agree with others saying that it'll ink past the minimum at the last minute.

    I just got into the line a month and a half ago or so and i guess it was pretty good timing for the castle pre order but no so good for the line since the prices on a lot of them are pretty up there. Castle Grayskull was day one pre order for me very exited that theres a chance it can be made. ^_^
