    Filmation Snake Mountain if Castle Grayskull sells well enough? Yeah, I don't look for that to happen, though I'd love to be wrong.

    Scott said we'd need to buy however many Castle Grayskull's as we bought subs, if I remember correctly.

    I bought three subs, and I'm not buying 3 Castle Grayskulls.

    I'd have bought 2 Castle Grayskulls if it had been based on the Filmation design, but not the prototype. I think the obsession with prototypes and pure vintage designs has hurt this line in the last year or so.

    ----------

    Good news that Clamp Champ will have new armor.

    Although, one again wonders why Evil Lyn was screwed over twice, while Clamp Champ and Jitsu get new armor. Jitsu looks amazing, but the complete lack of effort that went into both Evil Lyn figures is still pathetic in my mind.

    NA He-Man looks neat, but I honestly don't need any more He-Man variants. We're already getting King He-Man, we just got TP He-Man, and Pre-Eternia Disguise He-Man last year.

    Seriously, Filmation Hordak anyone? Filmation Teela? An actual 200x Evil Lyn? MYP Randor? A teen 200x Adam?

    Instead another He-Man variant so soon? I'm not happy with that, but he does look cool.

    I must be honest; I would have preferred a Filmation Grayskull. I've always loved the "fat skull" look. This one just looks far too narrow, like the Icon Heroes statue. It’s actually the interior that has me more interested. I, too, am a bit tired of this relentless love for concept art.

    Nope, door looks to be about 10.5-11"... That means the Castle will be around 25-30" tall!!!

    Id take that comment with a grain of salt. he was comparing it to the relative sales of dc. lets use 4 as a base of reference. if last yr dc and motuc both sold 4, and this yr motuc sold 3 and dc sold 1, dc is WAY down from last yr, 75%, while motuc is only a little, comparatively, but realistically still down 25%

    It's a tiny window for SALES, but for presales that may not even authorize your card for the full amount right now, that's plenty of time for folks to make the decision that they can plan out their budget for the next 11-12 months and be able to afford a castle or two next year. And as someone else pointed out, if we want to get this thing in the fall of next year, the presales has to end in time to give the green light to start the work.

    Can anyone read the print on the blueprints?

    I'm liking what I see, but it's hard to make out exactly. I see shackles above the creature-crate, the throne, and what I think is a place to set the orb in the dome above the throne. I think there is an elevator and a nice big-screen computer console next to it. What is the extended, round floor from the bird's-eye-view? Is that the Wind Raider spot?

    Over all, I love CG! The ledge!

    NA He-Man is leader of a whole new era of MOTU, so he's more than another variant. Original He-Man wouldn't work in New Adventures.

    NA He-Man looks really good! I love his sword, shield, new belt and the added cross on his chest strap. I really hope he comes with an alternate helmeted head and his clip-on armour. I doubt he will have it though. Bow also lost his clip-on armour.

    I think Clamp Champ looks great! I personally don't think he needed new armour, but I'm positive it was done because of the complaints about the big hole in Fisto's armour at the back. I forsee this released in a future Weapons Pak for Fisto.

    I hope Mattel or the Four Horsemen post large, detailed pictures of the blueprints. I would like to see what they have planned for the inside of Castle Grayskull. It's pretty hard to see in the pictures. The outside looks nice, but I think customers need to REALLY be wowed to fork over $250 + shipping + taxes + customs (for international folks). This is a MAJOR purchase. In my initial gut reaction, I like it, but I'm still more impressed by the Icon Heroes Castle Grayskull. Four walls and the Filmation spine was just way too awesome!

    That's true. I was okay with it though, because I was never a fan of how crazy and trampy she got when he visited Etheria.

    Mattel is saying that if Castle Grayskull does well, Snake Mountain COULD be next. That is by no means a confirmation, that SM will absolutely get made, even if CG is produced.
    ALSO the message says that Snake Mountain will LIKELY be based on Filmation. Again, that is by no means a confirmation, that even if SM gets made, it will look like Filmation. The word LIKELY means PROBABLY, PRESUMABLY, PERHAPS etc.

    Let's not make the same mistake we did with Battleground Evil-Lyn, where Toyguru said she would LIKELY not be a repaint, but then after she did turn out to be a repaint, everyone accused Scott of lying, when he did no such thing.
    Let's not get cute with the technical points of language. If we just say that it was MISLEADING to say that the 200X version of Evil-lyn would LIKELY not just be a repaint is it ok then?

    Regardless if they say the Filmation version is LIKELY and then we get a version that is vastly different (as the vintage toy is) that's a bit more than debating the finer points of the word LIKELY.

    Let's just leave it at "It's WAY too soon to start having Snake Mountain discussions".
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Agreed on the concept cpdesign obsession. Castle grayskull just looks like the vintage castle grayskull. I would have been way more excited if it was more Filmation-esque. Instead of having that silly removeable minaret, give us a snap-on filmation skull facade!

    Will be posting images of the new MOTUC product from Mattel's booth soon so check back to TNI this afternoon.

    Sony continues to work on live-action movie. That could possibly lead to new TV shows and other cool stuff according to Scott.

    Yeah, I'm going to have to pass on the Grayskull preorder. I'm sure it will be awesome, but my first paycheck is not until Nov 30th, so there is no way I can order it when there is a pre-authorization charge.

    Clamp Champ is cool I guess, as is NA He-Man. I take it he is the $25 preorder? Nothing as amazing as Bluefin's Figuarts reveals though.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    NA He-man looks great. That we're likely to get the 1st version of NA Skeletor instead of the DoD/BB Skeletor version makes me sad.

    Also, there were several reports that those who had pre-ordered the Young Justice 2-pack said that the pre-order charge never dropped off until after the pack was cancelled.

    What was said about what it will come with?

    Looks like they solved the handle breaking the aesthetics issue
    Gaping holes in my collection: Regular old Teela, Weapons pack 1, Power & Honour book 1, SDCC artbook (maybe)

    In defense to Na he-man, he's actually not a variant, he's a new character with new face sculpt and hair. Which, it just occured to me, makes him the first new sculpt for He-man since the original figure. ( aside from king he-man)

    Clamp Champ is not the most exciting figure, and looks pretty much as expected. He needed to come out sometime though, and July 2013 is as good as any time.

    New Adventures He-Man looks awesome! Very excited to finally be getting him.

    Castle Grayskull sketches look pretty good. Love the size of it!

    Could we see themed exclusives at NYCC or Powercon like seen with Joecon and GIJoe? Every single one of those would use up a sku. So if they only get 14 skus allocated for the year those exclusives would use up valuable skus.

    Sadly, I'm starting to look at it from this POV, too. Filmation CG has always looked so much more striking. That’s one of the reasons why I’ve never been crying for a CG since day one; because I knew that it would likely look like this. That’s why the mention that a (possible) SM would “likely” be based on Filmation is welcome news.

    I have nothing aganst NA He-man necessarily (although my personal preference would have been for NA Skeletor) I just don't want that variant to count for the other NA slot for the year.
