    Wow! Pixel Dan. The legend. The man. Thanks so much. Working on it right now actually! We were thinking of getting a copy of this in front of you to review at somepoint if you'd be interested. We haven't worked out all the details of that, but we know we'd like you to check it out. Thanks again.

    To everyone else. I see this thread went on to talk about the 4h and mattys likelihood to make a grayskull (even though this is a fortress of power. Sheesh. )
    That was fun to read. And I'm glad the thread got people thinking. My thoughts? I think the 4h could sculpt this well. OF COURSE! I can't believe anyone has that doubt. They are the masters. So amazing. BUT I don't see Mattel ever making a castle grayskull. There are many many vehicles they will test the market with first. And if they did make a castle. I really don't think it would be to scale. Even the original was not to scale. Plus. Without getting too in depth, I dontthink toyguru gave too many collectors a good feeling in their mouths with his recent letter about next years sub being the lowest yet, lowering monthly fig numbers and wanting to "keep the secondary market alive". That didn't give me a good feeling about the line I used to think would have no problem lasting until 2017.

    That is all. Thanks Dan. And everyone.
    Pics soon! Any areas of the fortress people want a closer look at?

    Well, I absolutely would love to check that out! You know I can't say no to that! Just let me know when you guys get closer. We'll work something out.

    But for now, just get that thing finished! I can't wait to see the final results!!

    i can try and finagle a photo of such setup of course... were also working on the removable sidewalls, which will really make this thing come together.

    My anticipation is growing!

    1) Any plans for box art?

    2) What will be the dimensions of this sitting on furniture? I thought I heard you were going to include the bridge? That would extend it out pretty far I'd imagine. What kind of floor/shelf space are you looking at?

    3) Any plans for stickers?

    hey man. sorry for the long delayed response...

    who says there will be a box?
    if there wassssss. yeah im thinking of some stuff.

    the bridge/door will be part of the fortress for sure, but it only extends out to meet with the front steps. without having taken precise measurements yet, i know its about 3.5 feet tall, and i think the base is like 2.5 wide by 1.5
    i think. ill have to take rel measurements at some point... it seems its always getting bigger.

    no stickers. but there are a few secrets/extras of the fortress we have yet to reveal.
