    The Official Castle Grayskull Arrival/Picture Thread

    At long last, the ultimate playset for MOTUC has arrived! Some of us are lucky to get their Castles almost immediately, due to overnight shipping or living close to the warehouse!

    While the rest of us are waiting for our Castles to arrive, we can check out pictures from fans who already have their castles in hand!

    MGM must have read my mind, as I was going to start this. I think it'd be good to have a separate thread for arrival/pics since the Shipping/Billing Thread is so long already.

    Yes, I've seen some on Facebook! And, apparently, if you take the dungeon apart, the Working Class villains Dungeon Grate WILL fit inside! It's a bear to get the dungeon part, apparently, but it will fit! Which is awesome.

    Come on gang! Those of you who have already gotten them (mine is on its way) need to tear yourselves away from the thing and share!!!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Yeah I'm worried about the box it's being shipped in. Sure it's great that it's sturdy. But there is no packaging/styrofoam between the cardboard box & our CG. One hit to the box =dent. Long hauls across the country or pond I'm a little fearful for. Fingers crossed coming in unscaved.

    Can you blame them? Heck I'd be a hermit in my He-Man cave for a month when this CG arrives if I could. The anticipation is becoming over the top. Excited......

    Never received a shipping notice. Just a knock on the door. Matty must have known today is my birthday, cause this is one awesome present!

    didn't get mine yet (though I DID get my shipping confirmation email!), but I just wanted to lob this out for everyone... out of excitement for these finally arriving:

    Thexxwatcherxx did in another thread... I only saw tiny versions on my phone while getting ready for class tonight. It has a new Bio on it for "Masters of the Universe!" I haven't read it yet...

    I'm really shocked… I got the shipping email this morning, and the castle was at my door when I got home from work. The packing box is nice and thick, so the toy's box is in perfect condition. Still really don't understand why Kronis is on the poster though.

    I just got home from a 16 hour work day, so this was a nice treat, plus my wife is conviently distracted by the live Sound of Music! Oh, and speaking of music, I put the MOTU theme on a loop the whole drive home!

    Alright, kids! I NEVER get anywhere near first crack, so I'm glad to share the big one! ;-)

    Welcome...?

    This thing is DOPE! I know it cost a lot, and we had to wait a LONG time, but there are very few times when I've had less buyers remorse. I am really stoked to have CG...finally! I think you guys will love it, and I can't wait to see what some REAL photographers do with it!

    For my part, I avoided the long shots until I can get some good daylight, and because there are so many floating around. This thing has a lot of close up detail and play value, and I think for a set like this, it's getting in close that really makes the illusion work. Anyway, hope you enjoy, and happy receiving!

    I wish I could paint! I so would love one of these but I suck at painting. And I'm not even sure they ship to Germany
    Awesome sticker included!
