    as a kid i never understood why the frightzone looked nothing like the cartoon one.

    as for interlocking... i'd just be happy if they could lock in to the battle stands somehow (if there's a horde one coming)

    It might be blasphemy, but I'd almost rather have a classic's Fright Zone and Slime Pit before Castle Grayskull.

    I've never seen that fright zone poster before. It looks awesome! (though not really as a Fright Zone though.

    you should ook at the Earl Norem posters and book covers, some AWESOME artwork you might be missing out on.

    I love the idea of these playsets linking up.

    I, too, would prefer a Fright Zone (Filmation-style) playset before Snake Mountain or Castle Grayskull.

    Not at all! A lot of people (me included) love The Horde! I think a small diorama (cough playset cough) like the Slime Pit would look incredible, sell well and be more feasible than a $300 Castle Grayskull

    And I LOVE the idea of making the Slime Pit and Fright Zone interlock in some way... I wouldn't be able to buy that fast enough

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who would rather get the Slime Pit or Fright Zone first. I love them, The Horde aren't even my favorite faction. As characters they were kind of weakly developed outside of Hordak, but they were hands down the best toys in the vintage line. That's why I love them so much.

    That was my thinking. I need a Castle Grayskull, but as a kid I got more enjoyment out of the Slime Pit and the Fright Zone as toys.

    I think a Classics Slime Pit as sort of a large diorama to test the waters, so to speak, would be a good idea.

    I agree!
    You tube recommended me a review on the Fright Zone.
    The guy is complaining about that it wasn't cartoon accurate and that it was too small, with a few tricks and too fragile.
    I always liked it even though I was never able to get it, but now I saw it with different eyes, it's not the cartoon accurate issue that bother me but for the fact that it was nothin' compared with the Heroic Warrior playset, Castle Grayskull, and the Evil Warriors playset, Snake Mountain.
    Then looking at the review I've come up with one thing: the Horde also had the Slime Pit!
    And if Mattel rather than sell an entire playset had thought of a group of mini playset to create the real Fright Zone?
    After all the vintage Fright Zone seems to be a part of the real Fright Zone, as well as the Slime Pit!
    So I came here on org and ta-dah! You had the same idea!
