    Oh, I wasn't sure if that was a common thing with dry brushing. I've never dry brushed anything before. Either way, it's okay because they were easily removed.

    I hope we see everything at SDCC that's been teased to us this year! Having the castle in hand, I can't wait to see the Filmation inspired base AND Talon Fighter displayed! And Can't forget about Snake Mountain!!

    Not sure I'll add the add-on base, as cool as it is. But I'd be very tempted by Point Dread. I wonder if they'll be separate or a set? And Snake Mountain will definitely be mine. It'd be awesome if they showed us something they haven't teased like the Crystal Castle or the Fright Zone.

    Yes that is the Castle Grayskull add-on they hinted at shortly after the Castle was released. It sits on top and there is a Point Dread to do with it

    You need to convince them to take on the POP license.

    I'll ask about She-Ra. There might be a licensing thing there, so I obviously can't promise anything... Yet.

    If it follows last years schedule dealers will be able to order their stock next month sometime. I can't wait and I have AFX Sales on speed dial so I can place my order immediately when the solicits come out.

    So happy MOTU is getting this awesome treatment!

    Wow, did anyone notice that Castle Grayskull now has the blaster and the flag ontop of the towers? I wonder if they come with Point Dread or the Filmation-base.
    (look closely at the background!)

    Toy news has some amazing pics from different angles! Yeah the blaster and flag are there and it appears as if Point Dread has a detachable base so it can go on the castle!

    Why is the MSRP so high on the Castle Grayskull accessory set? It's $175, compared to $125 for the castle itself. It looks like roughly the same amount of raw materials. I think they might have a tough time selling an accessory that costs more than the item it goes with.

    I'll definitely get both the Castle add-on set and Snake Mouintain.

    The add-on set is little bit on the expensive side though... I wasn't expecting it to cost (that much) more than the original Castle Grayskull itself.
    Awesome sticker included!

    Hopefully I can answer some questions here.

    I believe there's more material in the Grayskull Set compared to Grayskull by itself. The Base alone is nearly the same amount give or take a little. It's quite a bit wider than overall than Grayskull. But then on top of that, the pack comes with in addition to the base, the bridge, the flag, the gun, AND Point Dread and the Talon Fighter. And if everything goes according to plan, that top Portion of Point Dread with the Talon fighter IS designed to sit on top of Grayskull as well.

    Keep in mind also, there are more paint apps on this accessory set than there were for Grayskull itself. As we know, paint apps can cost quite a bit in production.

    Hope that helps justify the price point a little for anyone who is curious.

    Snake Mountain is huge, and it's paints should be interesting... Not exactly sure what the price point will be on it yet, but if you want it, I'd say start saving up!

    Also keep in mind that I am going to try to help orgers like I always do with discounts so hopefully that helps some of you guys. Also I can do payment plans so when the time comes if you really really want it talk to me in private.

    Nobody should miss out on these, they are too awesome!
