    I haven't seen a lot of this, but some peeps say they just won't order from Matty regardless because they don't want to deal with Digital River anymore. I haven't had issues, but some have. Plus, I figure some toy sites will order a few to sell high later as well.....

    Sorry if this has been mentioned (I don't remember reading it, though) but today I was in TRU and saw that they had a Star Wars Millenium Falcon re-issue in it's classic box. It cost... $250. The Millenium Falcon is decently sized, but not huge. Certainly not as big as this sucker is going to be. Just food for thought when thinking about the relative value of Grayskull.

    EXCELLENT bit of info about the TRU Millenium Falcon.

    Hopefully that will help some ppl to better understand the true value of this playset an why we need it made!

    That video is awesome. I wish I would have won the CAC contest, but I think Masque was picked for more than just his idea, he's saving the line too! It was pre-ordained by the Elders. Fan power!

    It's not a reissue of the original. It's the Big Millenium Falcon (or BMF as it's often nicknamed on Rebelscum.Com ... any similarities to certain slang terms are purely coincidental ) with the TRU-exclusive vintage-style packaging. It's $250 of amazing movie accuracy, sounds, lights, and play features ... and Hasbro's quality control. Just food for thought when comparing it with ToyPrototypeOnly!Castle Grayskull.

    GO FORWARD. Please support the Christopher Reeve Foundation by purchasing a set of Superman tags at www.ChristopherReeve.org

    If nine hundred He-Man.Org members get eaten by Thundercats fans, but neither of them has a toyline, does it still count as a fan movement?

    I'm so glad this is back out!! I waited too long and missed it the first time and they are crazy expensive on Ebay. I will be grabbing this thing for sure. Thanks for the heads up.

    Oh do you guys remember when Scott attacked Hasbro's QC because the figure of Luke with the part on the wrong side? Say what you want but Hasbro is a much better company than Mattel. I'd gladly preorder a Terrordrome or Jabba's Palace or Cobra-La playset from them based on a drawing, and I wouldn't be worried about what I would end up with.

    I think with the exception of people with serious money issues; noone is disputing how awesome the Castle could potentially be.

    The problem here is where things go from the preorder stage to the final product. Many of us have very recent memories of being promised the world then being screwed over on the Hoverboard and so we're understandably more than a little nervous about the final product.

    It would be one thing if Mattel had come out guaranteeing that this will be the Horsemen's baby virtually from start to finish and that they've already talked to the Horsemen and that this has been properly costed and those features listed will be included in at least 95% of their entirety (where the remainder could be offered as pieces in an "add-on kit" if worst came to worst).

    Yet we're not getting that. What we're getting are not only canned lines from Scott, but canned lines where Scott hopes this is on par with the disaster that is the Hoverboard. That just does an absolute number on my trust with Mattel.

    It's frustrating, because on one hand, I'd love to preorder one, but on the other hand, I'm reminded of the old saying "fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me!" I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who feels that way either....

    My big question is, why aren't the 4H sculpting already? I was under the impression they did the 200x stuff and King Grayskull before Mattel told them to. I personally would have started sculpting if I were in their position because I'd want to see it/own it even if it was one of a kind. I just feel like they are being reined in on what to be doing so they must wait on Mattel to tell them what to do. Scott has stated twice now that we will be getting at least what has been shown, no less. So he better keep his word.

    Ohhhhh.... that's pretty neat. The packaging looked so much smaller than the BMF. That's pretty cool, then and not as outrageous as I thought. LOL. I still think the comparison is pretty good though. Just some people were saying they didn't think the price was right for what we get. I think it's pretty comparable.

    I've been ignoring these many posts about the Hoverboard but this is the last straw... I have to say something!

    I'm amazed how much poo poo this prop is getting. It looks awesome. It has lights, it has sounds. As for the lenticular sticker and that whole pink fur / velcro thing, there are a lot of different props in a movie. Some are for close ups, some are for action scenes etc etc. i.e. there isn't just 'ONE' hoverboard. And from what I believe, Mattel really worked with the people who designed the prop. If fans think they know better than the original craftsmen who actually created the prop, then it's getting a little ridiculous as far as I'm concerned. And if a fan really wanted a hoverboard, why would he change his mind just cause a sticker's missing? People feel so entitled sometimes!!!!

    As for Castle Grayskull, I'm sure people will wail to the heavens about whatever thing that they REALLY THOUGHT they were going to get not being included in the finished product... How dare they not give us the torture table! How dare they not do this, that, blah di blah.

    I'm happy we're getting a castle Grayskull. If you don't want one because of the prospect of what new disappointment / betrayal you may be able to complain when it comes out, suit yourself. And I'm really not saying that in a mean way. I just mean it like 'do whatever you wanna do'.

    I for one would have loved Mattel to END ALL PRE ORDERS on 12th of November instead of extending it to January, so that only the true believers and the ones who pre ordered would get the castle. And a year from now the ones who hesitated and didn't preorder would basically be consumed with regret and bitterness 'cause the Castle is GOING TO KICK ASS!!!!
