Also, remember that piece is removable, so you could have a more natural looking stone base for the WR or the BR if you wish.
It's mostly about giving people a few options, a few play scenarios if you will.
I would absolutely be in favor of giving that hole a plug of sorts to disguise it or hide it. Or have another accessory plug into it like... Maybe a Filmation Sorceress throne? Or another weapons stand, or the torture rack?
Ideally it could be a universal plug for other items if Mattel wishes.
If there's another "Grayskull furniture pack" made with the "well of souls" (dungeon grate), they could include said plug or other accessories to make use of that hole.

At any rate, the castle is still great. Just doing some playful over-thinking. That was fun!
Has anyone had to change their credit card information for their pre-order?
I just called and handled this today. Pretty painless process, nothing to complain about. But I'm worried about my order number. Am I going to be issued a new, later order number by making this change? I also upgraded shipping which makes me a bit worried that they're going to cancel my order and establish a new one, which will move my ship date out. I preordered on day one so I'd be mega bummed if I end up having to wait till a later wave of shipments.
So that is another order cancelled and re-ordered (that's two now).
I don't care when I get Castle Grayskull. I just want it for the price I originally ordered for it.
The thing I'm worried about, is that after getting a new order number, they will probably not include the poster that I was supposed to get for preordering early.

Anyone changed the shipping address on their order? Just wondering if this will also result in my original preorder getting canceled..??

If you purchased through Matty then your shipping is hugely discounted because they ship in bulk. But these are the prices for me to ship as an individual.
Below are the shipping quotes from various shippers TO Australia from the USA:
UPS Worldwide = $993.48 BEFORE insurance
DHL Express = $863.60 BEFORE insurance
FedEx = Between $786 - $1,008 BEFORE insurance
US Postal Global Express = $411.70 BEFORE insurance

I've said it before, the people who cancelled thinking the castle was too small are missing out...
and those who kept their orders and also think it's too small are in for a surprise!
Castle Grayskull is huge!! And I foresee people complaining about "Where am I going to put it now?"
And yes, I was finally able to get the dimensions...though it took a lot of gnashing of teeth and being sent back to 3rd grade...but I got them. lol.
Alright...Are you guys saving opening up Castle Grayskull on Christmas Day or opening it up immediately?
I'm leaning toward opening on Christmas Day. I originally got Grayskull back in Christmas of 1981, but "Santa" assembled the castle before I got up. I guess it ultimately depends if I'm working on Christmas Eve or not.
IF I did wait I would want the box as well as the playset to be a complete surprise, but since I have to ship 13 of them to international friends then I will be seeing it anyway.
There's no way I'm waiting 'til Christmas!!
Unless DR delivers it until or after Christmas...
I will open it right away. But, to be honest, after a few days of playing with it, it'll probably have to go back in storage until I move into a house. I'm a bit torn as I know some of the pieces don't come out once they snap in. But I want to be able to put it back in the box.
