The Spirit of Grayskull could attach to the top of the Turrets like the Flag did, just like in Crusader's picture.

I'll take a Spirit of the Castle any way I can get it, but it would make sense to come with the Castle.
As for the Wind Raider--I never had it either. I knew better than to ask for vehicles and such, as it was never going to happen. But that doesn't mean I didn't like it, or want it. I can't believe people aren't buying the Wind Raider, but whatever. Hopefully they'll do a preorder for the Battle Ram one day.
I wonder what that third floor walkway is going to look like... I'm tingling for the B-Sheet already!!
Unfortunately, the CG will never be ultimate until Point Dread gets released.
I am excited by the possibility of a CG in Classics but I am so worried about where it will fit in my display and worried if I am going to stick with my normal two or go for a third. I guess in a couple of weeks I will have a better idea of what to expect
Love the idea of hidey holes within te castle
Neat idea huh?
I want my other half.
I remember Scott and Terry saying they'd never do the Sorceress throne last year at PowerCon because it would require too much tooling. This might be the closest chance to make one as part of the Castle Grayskull project.
I really think the price is too much. Anyone else agree?
Nope, they addressed that too. They said if they ever did make a throne for her, they'd make slots for her wings to go through.
I trust the boys on the exterior of the castle. I'll be happy with big tusks or classic teeth, and honestly I always liked the crumbly ruins of the old minicomic art, so seems like I'm set there. Iconic Grayskull bits for me include a proper toothy drawbridge, laser canon, and a flag. Anything else is flexible.
Most of my wishlist is for interior features. First and foremost, I hope that it's not the undetailed concave of the facade. Those flat, featureless floors and plain walls always bothered me a bit as a kid. The interior improvements (slight though there were) were the bright spot of the '02 castle.
Stuff I'd love to see:
1. I think it'd be awesome if the dungeon grate could open and you could perhaps lay a figure down inside it amidst the gruesome beasties.
2. Portal/door with Pigs in Space style interchangeable backdrops for a shimmering Filmation portal and Etheria at least. Trolla would be nice too.
3. Some sort of alcove with a pedestal for whatever you want to put there: Grayskull Man, Bronze King Grayskull, the space suit, or just that vintage banner. Perhaps this could be part of a secret compartment for the orb and the power sword as well.
4. I hope the throne has some sort of Filmation nod to it, even if they do scale it down. I just dig the organic look. I never did like that Zodac chair (except when I pulled it out of the floor and used it as Zodac's chair) I, too, would love to see the Eye of the Universe behind the throne.
Other stuff. The weapon trainer and a three dimensional representation of the small cardboard weapon rack would be grand. Less excited about the torture rack and jetpack honestly. I'd probably just end up using the rack as Grayskull Man storage, Frankenstein-style alongside the weapons rack we already have. The playmat, if flagstones on the inside and abyss on the outside, sounds cool, but the flats always bothered me in the old castle, and a 2D playmat would likely go unused in my display (as I plan to sculpt my own base for it and incorporate there the things that I want but don't make it into the final piece. If the playmat is some sort of sculptural base, however, that would rock my socks.
Preorder or not, as much as I want Castle Grayskull? I can't justify spending $200-$300 on it.

I really hope it stays at the $200 mark. They are pushing to go beyond that.
I´m sorry but I do not think that I would afford it, but time will tell.
I think the price is fine and could go up if needed I just wan the best Castle we can get an dI'd rather pay more than get an inferior product. Part of me wants the play mat to be sculpted, but if its a large circle that can't be removed it would make display kind of difficult. Really cant wait to see the picture at NYCC
