    Well, two half-sides that fold-in, actually. They aren't full-sized.

    Though I agree - at 30", it would have been even more impressive (the new one, that is). As to color, etc. - it's just a mock-up, I don't expect them to be exactly what we see.

    Honestly - that's what I think I am doing. You can build or buy a lazy susan for $20ish, more if you want it auto-rotating of course. But it seems the only way to really display this unless you indeed end up making a dual display.

    #2.) Sick...sick...beyond words...amazing...

    #3.) HUGE!!!!

    #4.) The scale for the back of the castle....amazing.

    #5.) 4H Sculpt CG in THAT scale...$250 is worth it!

    DR came through! I requested to cancel my CG pre-order because of the wrong shipping costs issue and they did.
    Now I can place a new pre-order with the correct (lower) shipping costs!
    I'm so happy I might even order 2 now
    Awesome sticker included!

    I'm so glad this idea has caught on.

    Although it's not terribly original, I think I was the first one to bring it up in the "what do we want in it" discussions when it was announced, and it got a great response. I really hope this one makes it in - it's really one of the most iconic Filmation items in the Castle.

    To me it looks like that Horsemen are set on to do the castle as it looks by the Iconheroes, especially the front. I am not too keen on symmetrical skull look that they have been doing. However that is an overall detail, not necessarily a deal breaker.

    But how does one display this thing? Outside is the most iconic, meaning that inside just doesn't get shown? With the cost and shipping, I am just on the fence. Maybe front only would have been the way.

    A fašade would have been way more affordable indeed.

    Question:

    I pre-ordered CG Tuesday at $344. Reading my credit card statements today, Sunday, I'm missing exactly that amount, but there are no details or transactions from Matty. Anyone else experiencing the same?

    I am glad that so many enjoy the full playset, but personally I fail to see where most people need it. From what I see, some even just keep everything in boxes or opened up on selves, like me. Do not read me wrong, I am tempted, but it is these sort practical reasons that keep me so far from ordering.

    HEY SOULGEM! Awesome avatar


    HOLY CRAP THAT WORKED! I sent a message through the matty contact us thing like 4 hours ago complaining about the shipping charge changing and wanting to place a new preorder for the castle and just got a cancellation email letting me know it is done! Never call only email it would seem!

    A few things:
    First, at power con Scott announced a $200 price tag for CG and the crowd went wild. Scott looked over at Eric Treadaway, Eric looked back over at Scott, and both gave a look like, “Man, with this response we should have asked for more.” So I am happy we cheered ourselves to a $50 hike.

    Second, I loved the video Scott did. I lost it with the intro, “Hhhheeyyyeee.”

    Third—on a serious note—words cannot describe the amount of excitement I’m feeling for the release Castle Grayskull. With everything they have shown and the features they’re talking about makes this Grayskull sound every bit as fun as the original. I really hope Mattel goes forward, and it is important to remember that unless something drastic changes in the way toys are made, this very well may be the last time ever we see something like this happen.

    I've said it already, but I do think there should be a couple of filmation accessories inside, at the very least.
    Although, if it doesn't happen, there is always hope for extra preorder Grayskull walls if this one does well. Imagine a right wall dedicated to 200x elements, and a back wall for filmation elements?

    All of these are things that I want.

    They're going for the most ultimate playset ever. They want to go all out and create something iconic. Facade, while convenient for space, would have been incomplete.

    I appreciate that Matty is giving us this chance. I was just wondering.. Considering how we had to rally around MOTUC for the next year of subscriptions, do you feel if Castle Greyskull was offered earlier in the line, it would be an easier sell?

    Thermometer is still the same one as was there Friday. At least as of 2:21PM EST on Monday. What is it they say about a watched pot?

    Ok tried to Pre order the castle and it says card validation failed, that's funny because I have plenty of funds available and it's the same card that's used for my subs. Anyone else have that issue? I'll try again but if it does the same thing then I'm going to say the hell with it.
