Well with a real CG now coming, this seems like a dead letter. Just sayin'.
I just cancelled my pre-order at BBTS. I feel bad about myself, but there's no room for two Grayskulls in our home. It's a great looking product and I hope it sells well!
This is a sad day for Icon Heroes and Beana. I was on the edge of ordering this but now there's no way I'll do that.
I wonder what kind of contract/agreement Mattel has with Icon Heroes and how this will affect their relationship.
Timing couldn't be worse for Icon Heroes.
It's fair to the fans, however, because it'sto cancel pre-orders or to make the decision not to order this at all.
Awesome sticker included!
Yea, you just know that Icon Heroes and re-sellers just blew a gasket within the last hour, but what can you do. The whole business is a gamble for every one involved, but it looks like the consumer won out on this one since the I.C. version has yet to be released still giving them a choice.
I'm sure that a few people with still shoot for both, but I'd imagine that most won't and will try to nab the Matty version as long as it gets made.
I'm still getting both....assuming both come out. This is an awesome sculpt and if nothing else, it works more in scale with vintage figures than classics figures, so I can use it in that manner as I don't have a vintage Castle.

Yea, but if you want to blame any one blame BBTS for allowing it to take place, in the first place. They make the rules and at the end of the day their own rule in a sense came back to bite them. Heidi nor any one else in this situation is doing ANY THING wrong if that's the store's policy on the matter.
You usually have a negative and positive in a situation and I'm assuming that the system that they have in place makes a lot of money, but of course the draw back is some thing that we see here. Some times it works, some times it doesn't.
What will you do if the MOTUC Grayskull preorder doesn't sell through?

I'm getting both, but currently I'm way more excited about the Iconic Heroes version. Actually I think the Matty version has a bigger challenge because while I got three subs, I won't preorder more than one Castle Grayskull. They need to sell about the same number of CGs as they sold 2013 subs. Good luck there. Just saw the IH version here at the con and it is too gorgeous not to get.
Be sure to read Book of Evil Part 2: The Bells of Doom, only in the He-Man.org Fan Fic & Media forums!
I kinda want both, but the Icon Heroes version is more affordable for me.
"A knight is sworn to valor. His heart knows only virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the wicked."
They're both unique enough to have both. Of course the Playset Grayskull will be the hands down winner…BUT I absolutely still want the Icon Heros Grayskull. It's a thing of beauty. I'll take it to work and put it on my desk there.
200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!
Plesae don't pick on Heidi. Anyone who purchased a figure on that site can cancel their order, and as a consumer they're wise to do so if they no longer want the item. Otherwise they're stuck with an expensive purchase that they may regret, and that's no fun. Not every business holds people to their pre-orders (not to mention subscriptions) like Mattel does.
I´ll still buy the icon heroes one. It`s a high end collectible statue.
And the MOTUC version is not set in stone yet. No one knows how much units Mattel wants.
enjoying era wars
Now that Mattel has announced that a MOTUC Castle Grayskull is in the works does anybody still plan on purchasing the Icon Heroes Castle Grayskull? Do you think Icon Heroes had any idea? If not, I think that's pretty messed up on Mattel's part.
We also have to buy the "Fortress of Power" for $400.
What was this Icon Heroes Castle you speak of again?
