Por el Poder de Grayskull!!!...
Ya tengo el poder!!
My Feedback thread!!
I serve up lots of hot, fresh action figure reviews on Action Figure Barbecue!

"A knight is sworn to valor. His heart knows only virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the wicked."
OMG - so excited - THIS THING HAS TO GET MADE!
just in case any international fans haven't noticed, the shipping charge was wrong and its now much lower UK rate on UPS is around $98, Argentina i saw someone say was $107
so yeah it was very very wrong
(let the conspiracies commence)
The CG meter on Matty has started to fill!
Still a long way to go!
They added the old commercial to the ordering page!"Dad, you saved the castle!"
Help a homeless Evil Warrior! Build a Snake Mountain today!
The homepage of MattyCollector is all decked out like Castle Grayskull. This is so frickin' cool.
For the $250 pre-order now and no prototype pictures, we should get some sort of figure accessory.
"This is true. This is real. This . . . is . . . STRAIGHT EDGE."
Haven't decided yet if I'm biting the bullet. I mean, I'm sure I will, but I'm still so disappointed in how small it's going to be. If I don't order it tonight, it will officially be the first motuc item I didn't order on day one.
Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!
Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?
Just went back to see if it was updated... it's only filling the red bowl at the bottom.
I'm *really* hoping that the majority of us *didn't* pre-order today. This has got to move forward!
I know, I know, it's *only* day one... but I just hope we reach the goal, like everyone else.
It has been mentioned many times elsewhere that this is the starting point. The meter has not yet been updated.
I don't see it being as many as subs, but I'll be willing to bet with tooling costs, and paying the 4H to do it....it's up there in the vicinity.

Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Jitsu....
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
So if the preorders reach the required amount by Nov 10th, are they still going to let anyone preorder until Jan? Or is it the moment the thermometer is filled, they stop taking preorders?
Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
Basically, they need to have enough to know it's a "go" by the Nov date, but they can add to the production run until Jan so the later date is there to order until, if they meet the min.
To confirm, these are manually uploaded. They are being uploaded to http://news.mattycollector.com/wp-co...loads/2012/10/ . You can see in that folder that it is "thermometer2". (Note: No "hacking" involved here - you can easily find this folder by clicking on the thermometer image and seeing where it comes from.)
Hell, why not?
These two are from my own personal collection. I sold all my toys when I was 12, but kept all the minis/books/artwork, as they were what really spoke to me and why I became a fan. I couldn't part with them.
I also own the 2nd viewmaster (King of Castle Graskykull is the story, with Beast Man added into some of the frames!), and my cousin had the game. God knows how much other merchandise I saw that on as a child.
For anyone to state that they are 'rejected concepts' or 'unknown by normal people' is preposterous. It's why a lot of us are even here.
The vintage toy is one of the single most iconic playsets--and toy, in general--that has ever been produced. Of course they want to recreate that, and make it even better. It makes sense to base it on the prototype, which is likely b/c it's just the vintage toy, but spruced up more. It's what people want. I understand that some people didn't care about the toys as much as the cartoon, but please don't try and downplay the awesomeness of the original Castle Grayskull.
I've encouraged people to get on board and order this playset NOW on my toy news blog.
We have got to get this thing made!!! It's going to be incredible!
The best part for me is the perch for the Wind Raider! Awesome!!!
GAH!!!! This is so bittersweet!!!
CG is awesome!!!! Especially the 4H version!!
Theres no way I can afford this, not with the exchange rate slipping like it is at the moment!
I would have to bring in a major freelance job or do commissions like crazy!
I can't wait to see the actual sculpt!!

The only Castle Grayskull version I do not like is the 200x one. Any other version is fine by me. I quite like how the classics CG looks in the concept for from comic con.

Some of you guys will never get this concept. You simply do not understand the difference between people who obsess over this stuff and the other 99.99% of the world.
And what is hilarious is that you are not listening to me, either. I am not saying they should make it more Filmation on the outside. However, yes, MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of kids watched the TV show intently every day. THEY THREW FIGURE CARD BACK PACKAGING OUT.
The current version looks like the toy box and the toy itself, which also was in many hundreds of thousands if not millions of homes.
I know a few of you sat and studied the tiny little picture on card art of the original few characters and obsessed over it, or took the first few minicomics and prayed to them nightly, but truth is - most kids who got these toys couldn't even read yet - I didn't know a single person growing up who gave the comics much look. We were too busy watching the show with every other kid in America.
But...this will again go over your heads and you will post more obscure stuff that only obsessed internet fans remember, for no reason at all other than to continue to prove my point but have no idea what my point is because your mind just cannot get around the fact that yes, every one of those pictures was obscure, was not something a "normal" person would remember, and dwarfs in comparison to both Filmation and the actual toy that was released. They are ICONIC, to a GENERATION - not little bits that were thrown out by most families as trash and was only at the beginning of the line to boot.
- - - Updated - - -
Does it have the little dunce cap dot on the top? Do any of them have the grossly elongated face?
No they do not.
It looks like the toy box art of the released Castle.
Which is what I have been saying this should look like, what it DOES look like - yet you guys are picking an argument.
You will never get it...
