    It will be quite depressing if it doesn't happen. We have to keep up hope, all the while keeping our friends on the east coast in our thoughts.

    I noticed that too. With the sub it was a new video every day, with CG.....not really much of anything. It shows the popularity of MOTU that the meter is as high as it is with no real marketing attached. I mean other the TG's white mock up and Pixel Dan and Castle Grayskullman doing that hilarious video, I haven't seen much.

    I talked to Rudy about this on Tuesday when I picked up my prints from his art studio. He is really looking forward to working on this and he said that the Granamyr box art turned out great!

    Awesome! What prints did you get?

    From the Q&A's

    Castle interior

    Just wondering how Castle Greyskull's interior walls are going to be done, is it going to be just as the original? ( negative of the exterior walls) or will it have actual interior walls and details?

    also, is the Jaw Bridge going to have chains, like a real draw Bridge?

    Ideally the inside will be a unique sculpt and we hope to include chains. But I can't 100% confirm either until we get to the sculpting stage. But that is the goal.
    Oh Yeah!
    Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!

    Is there an active meter to know how close we are getting? If not, where is the current status being shared from? And how often?
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!

    ??????

    Has Grayskull EVER had 'chains'?? From minicomic to 200x I can't picture the bridge being dropped by chains.

    Honestly, I don't think I'd like that. The Jawbridge is always magical... Skeletor hasn't been held back all these years by mere 'chains'. Not to mention the 'mechanical dificulties' that having chains would have on the toy... I picture them either getting stuck in the winch mechanism, or caught in the teeth somehow....

    I think he means the chains in the dungeon prison

    ..
    They mean on the inside. Like chains to hold a character prisoner.

    As far as remembering Grayskull with chains attached to Jawbridge..



    Also there is one oddity in Filmation single episode where the Jawbridge is already open. And for some reason it has these chains. An ERROR if I ever saw one.

    Haha that would be quite a cool little easter egg joke. They should indeed include one. Or like a key chain thermometer that looks exactly like the meter on Matty's site.

    arrrgghh this is killing me, I think i could have accepted it if it failed at 60% or less, but if it fails this close (over 80%) I'm going to be crushed.

    Come on fence sitters, make the jump into Grayskull's yard!
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    Only 81% ??? It looks more than that on the thermometer.

    I just want to thank my fellow fans who have preordered this marvellous item. I myself have ordered 2 on the first day when the exhorbitant shipping to Australia was in place.

    I hope we make the minimum cut off and get the opportunity to own this marvellous creation. It would mean so much to have a MOTUC Castle Grayskull, and if successful, ultimately a Snake Mountain as well (though the Goddess only knows where I'll put them!).

    If this happens, it will be because of us fans. The ones who had faith in Mattel and the 4H and realise our lives will be better for having this item in our collections.

    When next I log in the presale will be over. I leave it to the Fates! Good luck all!

    Come on Matty... give us an update on the % or thermometer... some of us are DYIN to know here... lol

    .
    .

    Lets not take the chance that we might come up short on the goal. It's now time for me to ask ppl to "CONSIDER" ordering another Grayskull just to resell as a Scalp-Or at a profit or store MOC for years an sell at MAJOR profit later!

    WE DONT WANT TO "ALMOST" hit the goal!!!

    WE CAN DO THIS!!!

    COME ON HE-FANS & SHE-RAVERS WE HAVE THE POWER!!!!

    I have a feeling we will not get any updates until Tuesday morning since Monday is a federal holiday... I'm afraid will be left hanging until we know if it is going forward or not. :/

    Then we need to assume "AT BEST" that we are up 1 mark as per our usual gain on here per day [working off the numbers posted per day on the Order thread]

    Which means we need to contact vendors an confirm if they have ordered there's or not so we will know if we need to start hitting celebs up to help hit the minimum or order more just to resell ourselves...


    ITS TIME GUYS!!!

    "CONSIDERING" ORDERING ONE FOR RESELL LATER!
