    Got my CG statue today and I am THRILLED! It looks great! It really puts the Cast Lair to shame. Decided to use my 200X mini-figures with it and love how they look. VERY pleased
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    It really does and I was surprised at the difference, its almost like its from 2 different companies but I guess that speaks highly of people like Nate who made sure it was kickass!

    Very envious that you have one of those little pewter sets! I would love to set my castle up with some of those. They strike me as being perfectly in scale.

    Congrats!

    Oh my God, look how CUTE everything is!!!

    I would like a mini-line of main characters like this to fit with these statues. That would be SO awesome! I wonder how many people would be interested if Mattel made them in single colours, like the gumball MOTU figures from the 80's? We could paint them ourselves and they would be pretty cheap to make.

    Got my CG yesterday. I opened it this morning with my oldest boy. Freaking awesome. Love it....love it. I can't wait until ICON Heroes releases more stuff. I wish I knew how to post pic/videos. But I have it displayed opposite of the vintage CG with the box. I have the ICON Heroes CG sitting right on top of the box . The box art is truly amazing.
    But Nate....I want a larger print of it. Anymore hints?????

    Great pics man! I actually have a set of those little pewter figures on the way for this very reason! Mine are unpainted. I may end up painting them, though. Yours look great with the castle!

    Really enjoyed the Pixel Dan review! The pewter miniature photos inspired an impulse buy.

    My Castle Grayskull was under attack!!! It arrived today and had a giant screw jammed in the side of the box! Even though BigBadToystore had it in a nice box and covered with bubble wrap, the screw STILL pierced through the top of my Castle's box. Luckily, I'm not a MOC collector. I have NO idea how this screw got there. Grrr.

    The Castle itself is very beautiful and impressive. I'm not sure if anyone else's Castle had this...but mine was covered with paint brush hairs everywhere! It was like the paint brush was shedding it's winter coat or something! Luckily, I was able to remove almost all of them. The person who painted mine forgot to paint one of the wooden planks holding up the one tower's roof, which is a major bummer, but I'm still really happy with it. It's so beautiful and nice to FINALLY have a full Castle (all walls and the roof)!

    I have no where to put it at the moment, so no pics from me. Sorry.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, did anyone else notice Zodac's symbol on the top of the Castle? I freaked out when I saw it. SO cool.

    If I had more guts, I'd buy one of these and resculpt the stuff I don't like about the face.
    And then cancel my MOTUC order and be happy.

    But, I'm not quite that daring yet...

    Would this be the right scale for the little he man and skeletor figures that are being released at SDCC this year? That would be cool if they did. May have to get one then.

    Broke down and ordered one from eBay.

    It's more than awesome! In person it's even cooler than in the pictures.

    However, for German fans this is quite expensive:

    $124,54 + $62,80 (USPS Priority Mail International) + $48,86 customs charge

    Was it worth it?
    Yes, every penny of it!
    Awesome sticker included!

    The Mini Masters figures might be close to scale. Won't know for sure until PD does a review. Having these figures is an extra perk for getting the Icon heroes CG. I hope they do a Snake Mt.

    Mine came yesterday and it's truly amazing! I would highly recommend this to anyone. Also the box art is pretty awesome. I'm thinking of scanning it at work and printing out a poster.

    My castle just arrived tonight (3 days early!). I am so stoked. I'm displaying it on my night stand for now. Convinced the wife to let me move our alarm clock for now. The Fortress of Mystery and Power defined my childhood and I spent HOURS staring at my old toy imagining what was happening in each room. I imagine that's a big part of what made MOTU great in the 80's. You were given just enough info to let your childhood imagination fill in the blanks making you feel like you were part of the story. I love it!

    Yeah the paint brush hairs would be due to the fact that castle was completely "Dry Brushed" to give it those black creases that make the details pop out.
