    Seems like a really LONG way to go if that meter is accurate and we are really only at 2500. Looks like the goal then is 15,000 and I think it is pretty unrealistic that we'll actually hit that... unless of course we get a

    WHALE!!!!

    We need to call on celebrities again... get Charlie Sheen to twitter that Castle Grayskull is WINNING!!!!

    I love that somebody actually created a foam model to show the scale. That was an awesome idea, and it gives you a much better idea than just 2D blueprints. Kudos HORSEMEN!

    Well...I'll never own one, but I really hope this goes through and it gets made. I'm crossing my fingers, toes, and swords.

    When he pulled up that foam model, my eyes grew wide and my grin grew wider. I can't say the words on this forum. Friends, this has to happen. I know it was a cutout but I can see it...

    TBH, I think it probably will go through. As was said earlier (or was it in another thread?), Mattel have probably already given it the green-light. The brand as a whole seems to be moving forward for the better (comics, other merchandise, movie looking like it may finally happen, which itself would re-launch the brand). No way would Mattel set something this big up, only for it to fail miserably (and embarrassingly). My guess is it will be another "2013 Subscription" episode. Scott will post about how it’s struggling, then BAM! It went through at the last minute. I genuinely think that's what will happen.

    I cannot wait for this! It's huge! Liking what I'm seeing so far. Still curious about the orb room as it doesn't look like anyone but Orko will fit. I can live with it though. So excited! Only thing that sucks is the over a year long wait.

    I have sooo many plans for this thing. Gonna be buying lots of duplicate figures to use their accessories to decorate the castle. He-Man's hall of armor is a must for me. SCB (I think) posted a pic with all of Skelly's armor & weapons on the rack (which I have no idea what thread it was in, still learning my way around) and it was awesome. Totally doing that for He-Man!

    Hmmm.... I'm wondering if anybody that could never afford the castle would be content with just a highly detailed, yet still 2D, foam 'front of Castle Grayskull' prop? Seriously! It could come with a foam base so it stands up, and it would be one helluva great looking back drop.

    It would still be really cool!

    The size looks great! Please let this thing happen! Just knowing that if this goes through we will get a Filmation Snake Mountain made me order it. I could also see this possibly getting vehicles back on the table. I know they are not the same sku but upper management may consider it again if they sold a playset. Just speculation though.

    Regardless this Castle looks like it could be a fantastic addition if not the ultimate centerpiece of a MOTUC collection.

    $121 freight for me to get this! Jeez

    If this doesn't go ahead it will be the first time the fans actually dropped the ball IMO. Mattel have blamed us in the past for their MOTU failures but one cant reasonably ask for more than they have offered with the castle

    Agreed!

    I can understand 'not being able to afford it'... but man, Mattel has really done everything they can this time around.


    From the 14 months to pay... to the $0 authorization price... to already having a foam display example to illustrate...

    If people can't afford it, then that sucks... but Mattel gets props for this promotion

    I also agree. When things have gone south for MOTU things in the past, fans have been unjustly blamed. If MOTUC Castle Grayskull doesn't get made, it will be 100% on us. I mean, sure, everyone would love to see something added here, tweaked there, but it's freaking Castle Grayskull! If that little bit of something is making you hold off, thinking a different or "better" one might come along, it won't. It's this Castle Grayskull or NO Castle Grayskull. Also, if Grayskull doesn't make it, the vehicle fans will most likely never see the Battle Ram...and it would also be a long-shot for us to see any of the diorama pieces Mattel has talked about (nothing's ever materialized, though).

    This or nothing, folks.

    I hope a lot of people who are on the fence regarding Castle Grayskull end up pre-ordering one. Remember how excited everyone was about the Ikon Hereos Castle Grayskull? The MOTUC one pretty much looks the same as it (the 2 sides, at least) and I don't recall a lot of back and forth regarding how it should look. I DID see a bit of talk about longer teeth, but that's an easy fix (as someone suggested, include optional long or short teeth).

    If you really want a Castle Grayskull in your MOTUC collection, I really can't see how someone would pass this (possibly LAST) chance up. We were always told "maybe in a movie year" and everyone would sigh and be sad and campaign for it...well...it's finally here! Mattel listened guys and gals and put their best efforts into it. It's all up to us now.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    It was mentioned during the Q&A at NYCC. TNI reported it here.

    If you want a Classics Snake Mountain in Filmation style the Castle must sell.

    TBH, I believe that was in response to a question a fan asked - and I don't put a lot of stock in it. Kind of like how whenever anyone makes a request for X-vehicle, he says, "Best way is to buy Wind Raider!" Kind of his stock answer - they could have very well asked for Crystal Castle or Fright Zone or Eternia Towers, whatever and would have gotten the same answer. And if they set their selling numbers high as they have with Grayskull, there is no way we would sell any of the other playsets nearly as much - Grayskull is going to be the most popular, hands down.

    While I too would love a Filmation Snake Mountain (the original toy wasn't really a mountain to me - more of a cliff, LOL), I foresee that having even more issues than Grayskull has had. At least Grayskulls all pretty much have the same basic design, whereas there are quite a few disparate versions of Snake Mountain.

    Zombi, is that your model of grayskull a few page back? Do you have any more photos of how it ended up. Unfortunately your Facebook link doesn't load.

    Just curious more than anything but why the change of heart from Mattel re: Castle Grayskull? We were constantly told that it'd only happen in a movie year or something along the lines.

    I think it's great we're getting the opportunity like we are now and i'll be hoping till the last day of pre-orders that CG gets the green light!

    Probs because they know that the sub line will be down in both price and slots in 2014,thus the November release date, and testing the water with a pre-order system.
