    NA He-Man looks like he has a new headsculpt too.

    If so, doesn't that violate Mattlel's internal rule about one unified look for the line?

    So when we were told a Filmation Hordak would just have the standard Classics Hordak head, shouldn't NA He-Man have the standard Classics He-Man head as well? That's good for NA He-Man, but Filmation Hordak needs a new head.

    Let's just leave it at "It's WAY too soon to start having Snake Mountain discussions".
    I merely pointed out what meaning the word likely has. You don't use the word when you confirm or promise something.
    It has the same kind of meaning as maybe. Maybe Snake Mountain will look like Filmation, maybe not.

    But, I agree, let's not discuss Snake Mountain just yet. Right now we don't even know if we're really getting Castle Grayskull or not.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    So is a replacement Snout Spout head possible or not possible? The wording seems odd. I'm taking it as Mattel is telling us no.

    And why would I want Filmation Snake Mountain?

    Nevertheless, like I said, I cannot afford to preorder Grayskull.
    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.

    I do sound really negative today, but Clamp Champ looks exactly how I expected him to look: boring. An easy pass for me. As someone else said, though, he had to come some time, like the dreaded Ninjor. NA He-Man, however, looks lovely. I really hope he has a helmet. Although it does look as though a helmet wouldn’t be able to fit on his head because of his hair. Maybe he has two heads?

    No it doesn't - it's still the same face just a different expression and longer hair I think

    I thought so as well. If they aren't authing the full amount on cards, it will be easier on people - but if they are, I think they will get less sales. Not a lot of risk for them, to be honest - as Scott said, if there are "day of" they will be "much" more expensive. They will sell them anyway, after a year of hype.

    As to the figure reveals, nothing at all to excite me.

    But Grayskull? Absolutely sold. Absolutely. They listened - I think it looks just like the box art, and that stupid little knob thing on the skull is removable. Perfect. A place to hold Wind Raider? Amazing.

    As long as it looks like that, I'm a happy camper.

    Pre-Sale is October 16th to November 10th.

    Q&A

    If they ever did a Snake-Mountain playset it would likely be based on Filmation desgin. If Grayskull does well a Snake-Mountain could be next.

    App game may have other characters you can use besides He-Man


    Pre-Sale is October 16th to November 10th.

    Are they serious? 25 days for a presell of a $250.00 item? They should be giving this till December 16th. at least two monthes

    Come on everyone, we can get a CASTLE GRAYSKULL, a CASTLE FREAKIN' GRAYSKULL! This is our ONLY shot! If we don't make this happen, there not only will never be a classics CG, but there won't be any other playsets and probably no more vehicles. So it doesn't have everything you want, what does?

    I know I don't want to be posting on here in a few weeks about what could have been, I want to be anticipating the GREATEST PLAYSET EVER CREATED! This is a classics scale CG designed by the FOUR HORSEMEN! LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!

    Yes, but they're not going to take the money until late next year. Lots of time to save up.

    Based on the blueprint with the He-Man figure in it as a comparison, Castle Grayskull will be about 24-25" tall. That's pretty huge!! I'm thinking $250 for a castle that size with all the trimmings is not that bad a price at all!

    Well, I'm sold.

    Except for the way DR preauthorize charges for things. they do a pre charge of the full amount plus tax. meaning we NEED to have 250+ tax on whatever cc we are buying this thing with, $250+tax that will be GONE for about 3-4 business days from our accounts. Thats how it works for both my Chase and Bank of America accounts anyway

    NA He-Man's hair doesn't look blonde enough. It matches too closely with his skin. Hoping we'll get more accessories for him down the line (helmet, translucent green armor)
    How does the CG pre-order window compare with the window we were given for 2013 subscription sales?

    Just another little worry, have they given any thought to people whose current CC expires between now and next fall for the CG preorder?

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.
    I must say I'm also not feeling very excited by the drawing either. It's a good rendition, but I had hoped for a stronger prototype influence for the skull. Now it's just too close to the Icon Heroes castle.

    If you have a card that will expire in the next year... call your Credit Card company TODAY and request a new card with a new expiration ASAP.
    You will have the new card in hand before the pre-sale window closes.

    Also - If you are using a DEBIT card, then the expiration date doesn't really matter... MattyCollector has been charging the same debit card for months and it expired in May 2012.

    If you think, then you're not sure are you? And you can't definitively state that it doesn't.

    I can't tell from the pictures, but if it is just a new hair piece, then it would mostly be consistent.

    The figure still looks nice either way.

    Exactly. Far too narrow. I feel slightly deflated whenever I look at it. The concept skull had much more character.

    You guys are missing the point, not everyone can afford a $250 pre-authorization charge. MY first paycheck is not until Nov 30th, and as such, I cannot afford to even have $50 taking out at this point in time.

    Clamp Champ = Boring character/figure. BUT executed as well as he could be executed. Also, it's simple characters like him that allow the budget for characters like Ram Man. And it takes away yet another vintage slot.

    NA He-man = Runaway winner this round of reveals. Long overdue!

    * Up until this point, NA and POP (specifically Great Rebellion) have severely been lagging. Hopefully we get a Hydron and one of the big 4 ladies from GR before the year is out. (Glimmer, Angella, Castaspella, Mermista)

    Mattel has been going through all of this trouble to build and entire mythos, they need to pay a little more attention to these two factions.
