Here is something interesting given the answers to Kastor's Korner. TG states that 2013 was locked in over a year ago. So, 2013 was locked in at the latest in October 2011. It is also stated that 2014 has not been locked in yet. However, if 2013 is like 2014, then 2014 should be locked in by now given the schedule. This leads me to wonder when 2014 will be commented upon?
Because Batman is that awesome.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
My understanding is that 2014 characters was locked but 2014 b- and c-characters while be replaced by a-list Vintage/PoP/NA/Filmation. That's all. So maybe three or four are so far in, with the rest swapped in. How many will be determined by sub sales.
Regarding castle Grayskull, Scott said Mattel doesn't do playsets anymore not even for Batman. A new Batcave just came out so was this statement in regards to the future of playsets? I think Grayskull and certain other items should sell well but they need the resources. The new turtles sewer is awesome and if more sets were like itmorepeople would but I'in. Once NYCC comes and goes people will be buzzing about CG and it will hit goal. As long as they don't cheap out it will be epic.
I only have the last run of the Batman Returns\Animated Batcave. I kinda always wanted the Kenner original Tim Burton Batcave but I think the one I have is the best version.

In reality a Greyskull set being greenlit for 2013 speaks volumes as to Mattel's willingness to keep the MOTUC engine going. Granted, fans have to come to the party and support it financially of course, but managements very willingness to consider it is telling. Believe what you will- cynical or optimistic- as to 2014's chances, but I personally feel that 2014 is all but assured for at least the minimal SKU's. Perhaps the elimination of beasts and/or 3-packs, but otherwise at a minimum at least 12 monthly figures plus quarterlies.
Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

Yeah, I've seen that Batcave a few times in stores lately. Not as nifty as the old 1989 Toybiz cave...
I think Grayskull, if even nearly as awesome as I think it'll be, will garner lots of new support.
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
The one "I" always wanted was the combo 'wayne manor/Batcave' one... but I was JUST about out of toys when that hit the market :'(
As for 2014... this is no surprise at all. They have gone on record as saying we will not hear anything till SDCC...
the SAME time they announced the 2013 Skus. Seriously... have we EVER known ANYTHING about an upcoming sub... 16 months before the first figure hits?
Mattel knows exactly what's coming... the same as they know what the line up is for 2013.... but they aren't telling us. They like to keep the surprises and let us light up the forums with speculation!
But... YEAH, Castle Grayskull is a GREAT indicator

TBH I'm thinking if 2014 is scaled back it's a good thing. I'm already commintting to 1 Grayskull, and considering a 2nd, so a one year "break"/slowdown would be nice financially. Afterall once they sell 2014 subs next year, lets say they hit 200% or more, that will mean 2015 SKU's will go back up!
If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!
Slow month, isn't it?
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
Mattel: We arent able to make any changes to 2013. It was locked in over a year ago.
Oh good. We're back to this it's been locked in for ages answer for the sub. Funny how when the sub was in trouble and people asked for the lineup to incent, we were told that the Sub hadn't been locked in yet.
Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!
