    I was really beginning to wonder if there was a real chance of it going through, but it is getting very close. Here's hoping.

    Holy Schmooley... it looks like this thing may actually happen! We're within a stones throw of the minimum and we still have all weekend and all Monday to do this. I just have to say (and I felt this same sense of 'all for one and one for all' during the push for the 2013 sub) that I have utmost respect for the power, passion, and absolute rock solid devotion to this toy line that my fellow MOTUCers have. You folks are beyond awesome- yes, even the naysayers- and I really look forward to checking out the meter on Tues morning and seeing that we pushed well beyond the minimum needed!
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    We are so close. Hopefully they update it Monday morning so we know what the weekend brought us and what to expect for the last day.

    Castle is at 81% Straight from Toyguru's mouth since he was a guest on the latest episode of The Great Rebellion Collector's Club Council of the First Ones podcast! 3 more days and 19% left! If you CAN preorder it you should.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    This info is from about 2 hours ago when the episode was recorded. It hasn't aired yet, but we thought this info was important enough to be revealed before the episode, due to the deadline being so close.

    Yes. Do I believe their public target is their actual target? Who can say. But whatever their internal target is, yes. They would absolutely pull it at 90%.

    Awesome thanks for sharing that. Hopefully today's orders weren't included, and hopefully the weekend orders push us over the top.

    Yes, I guess I should have worded it like that. My guess is that we'll be 5-10% over the minimum by the time the deadline comes and goes. Especially since a lot of people were vocal about waiting until the last minute. I can only assume that's an indicator of the overall picture, including those that don't frequent this site.

    I only hope that this sudden spike isnt ALL of the remaining orders from around the net that ppl have mentioned that retailers are placing on various sites like BBTS an such.

    4 or 5 marks 19%... OMG SOOOOooo CLOSE!!! I think I am gonna have a stroke.... COME ONE ALREADY HIT MINIMUM!!! lol.

    No way Mattel is passing up at least 81% of these orders. I'm also suspicious of TG not pushing Grayskull as aggressively as he did with the sub (his vacation notwithstanding). Grayskull is probably doing so well that he might not be worried.

    In any event, I expect that the fence-sitters are going to have to make a choice this weekend.

    ...or we could be just right on track for what they are hoping... or even better to think...... maybe this is surprising them as maybe they DID think it would fail an we wouldn't step up and actually place our preorders an hit the minimum!

    Well with 604 preordered here, at 250.00 a pop, that's $151,000. No idea what they cost to make but I can't imagine that at least half of that would not be profit. Who knows how many were ordered by people who don't most here. Seems like a lot off money to throw away.

    I expect this is very accurate. We could've very well hit the minimum by now and they are simply sitting back and waiting on more and more orders. We will be told Monday that the project is a go and the peasants will rejoice!!!!

    I find it funny we're over confident about CG one minute, then down in the dumps the next. I'm just as guilty.

    To anyone on the fence, order regardless (as long as you can afford it). If we get Castle Grayskull, Snake Mountain might be the next dream come true! We can do this! I feel this pre-order is the next step in MOTUC's evolution. It's make or break time.

    Rep, no failing allowed! I am really encouraged given all of the orders just here on the org today, which would have to add to the 81% number quoted earlier. Just think, if we are so small, the orders must have been steam rolling in all day from other boards....
