    Now the box is incredible too, I love the vintage style artwork, it is, as Sean Connery would say 'a beasht'.

    I am, however, a little concerned about the packing and shipping of this monster. I really hope they take the time to pack CGS well, as we have seen how mangled some of the figures can get!

    Super looking forward to getting my claws on mine!!! >drools<

    Just in case anyone cares and missed it, the box says that the jawbridge can be opened by sword OR hand!

    Looking at the back of the box, I feel that Mattel needs to take a chance and release everything that is on there to the general public. :P

    A said on the Power Con thread:

    It was Scott's idea to have a picture of an adult collector. They tried to find a model who looked like the kid from the original box and dress him similarly.

    OK, that just makes it sound even more creepy.

    the model they picked is absolutely the worst thing about Grayskull, box and beyond. it's creepy enough to make me want to take a big giant black Sharpie to those photos the moment it arrives at my house. *that* is Scott's idea of us?

    I was impressed with this. The box was great, the Castle terrific. Lots of features, hidden doors, compartments, accessories and weapons. They could have made at least 2 Weapons Packs with all the stuff included.

    $250-$300 is a lot, but it's the same price as one Statue from somewhere like Sideshow.

    It really does feel like they're mocking their fanbase.

    Um, how so? This is an ADULT collector line. This line is for ADULTS. Are you a kid? Because I'm not. I realize a lot of use don't want to look in the mirror and see that we're a bunch of grown men and women collecting toys, but it is what it is. The picture just depicts reality. Shesh.

    I actually did just laugh out loud at this. The guy on the box doesn't bother me, but I guess it's a little odd I suppose. >shrugs<

    People are overreacting. Greyskull is getting released 30 years later to an adult collector now and we are the majority of buyers. I think it's hilarious that they put an adult on the box playing with the toys.
    Contact me if you have MOTU Merchandise Items for sale or trade! Please view a sampling of what I am looking for Here:

    So... this was the first time I got to see the Castle in person.

    You guys... it's just so amazing. Honestly, words cannot describe it accurately enough for me. It's so huge even on a big Con floor. I can't imagine how it'll be in my house. I didn't get a ton of time to play with it, but I did a little. I just have stuck the power sword in the rock 10 times. I'm SO playing with this sucker when I get it. I put Castel Grayskull Man on the throne and he looks pretty epic there.

    The throne thing with the Sorceress is unfortunate, but I'll be honest in saying that, to me, this is not the Sorceress's throne. Her throne is the Filmation one, and would make an awesome addition to an accessory pack. But I know note everyone feels that way.

    The golden skulls are just SO much fun. I have to give them credit for that one. What a fun little surprise. I AM getting a lazy Susan, though. That was just too great to have not too.

    This Castle Grayskull comparison picture was posted by MattyCollector. The Icon Heroes Castle looks like it can fit in the MOTUC Castle Grayskull's mouth!

    It's that we were all "cool" there. Power-Con is so low stress compared to other conventions I've been to.
    I played with it Saturday after the floor closed to the general public. You can pop off the gold skulls that sit on top of the elevator poles the same as the figures. hmmm... I got to fly the sled around the castle. That formica lazy susan and stand were awesome.

    Wow, that castle is so impressive in the walk-through video.

    I think Mattel should throw in that vehicle stand with the CG. It'd be a nice gesture, and would not cost a whole lot more. It would not need the circular base that came with Wind Raider, just the support stand to plug into the castle floor.

    Same with me for each of the MOTUC figures I got. Originally, I had them displayed on a desk at my old office....then our office closed and they've been boxed on my attic...I'm thinking about a mass prison jail break soon, but I always recycle the boxes when I get them. So technically they'll never be MIP. Lol

    And I have no idea where I'm going to put this puppy yet.

    I was so excited about the packaging that I showed my wife and then her response was all about how it's a waste of resources and an example of blatant consumerism. It is for her that I will find a way to preserve the box forever. I love it. Before, it might have been recycling fodder, but now it will be reinforced and as permanent as the castle itself.
    Any ideas on how to preserve cardboard to prevent fading, denting, ripping, etc.?

    PS. I'll put a picture of my own head over that of the man on the box!

    Ohhh, good question! Technically the Castle was its own sub and since sub items are not usually included as part of EA I would like to say no, but I could be wrong.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!
