Just regarding Castle Grayskull :
I'm very happy with the idea of seeing CG to classics... but as I was imagining, the scale doesn't satisfy me.
I know that from a financial point of view, its size has a big impact on the price and that 250$ is already a lot for many people.
But at the same time, I was hoping to see a jaw-bridge twice as tall as 1 figure and not only the same size as a figure...
Castle Grayskull isn't a big house... it's a Castle, and in all the cartoon its "mouth" is a lot bigger than the zise of a simple man.
So I'm happy overall but I'm already frustrated because of its size compared to the size of a figure... He-man riding Battle cat won't be able to enter Castle Grayskull...
Got to go to nycc met Scott which was really really cool. Thanked him for all the great toys so far. I think I was a little over excited to meet him. The Mattel booth was giving out he-man t-shirts too from the new video game. Very block-o looking art.
Fang Man looks amazing in person much better than in the photos.
Another cool thing was at the very end of the day I found the POWER AND HONOR FOUNDATION BOOK!! Which is a total ***** jam. Love love love the pictures.
Veebs stole my pic!!! LOL That thing was in the booth for two seconds. I turned to say something to my friend, looked back, and it was gone. Toyguru then disavowed all knowledge of the crossbow, stating that "Octavia has a purple one with an octopus on it, not white" LOL. Clever guy
It has to be for a Hordak variant. Note every crossbow to date has looked unique. This is Hordak's signature crossbow in white white. I hope it stays that way. I assume Buzzsaw, but probably Filmation more since there is more white to his face.
Oh, and I have a ton of Castle Grayskull layout pics. How do I post them? I took a ton of close ups of all the schematics.
All white with red eyes? I agree with those who said Filmation Hordak...seems like a waste of an accessory thought since Filmation Hordak never used a crossbow in the cartoon. If it is, I hope it's for a separate Filmation line or a bonus figure as I'm not interested in a Filmation style Hordak.

Filmation Hordak WITH Imp would be a really good choice for the white crossbow. However, I'm gonna go with Dragstor. His toy crossbow was gray but, since Hordak already came with a gray one, you can swap it with the one that comes with Dragstor.
Either way, I'll be psyched.

Could this be an extra accessory for the Horde Troopers?
When Scott announced that they have made plans for this yet to be revealed special program to deliver more of the fan-demanded characters, I immediatly thought of a filmation-mini-sub. But when are they gonna start this? Febuary, directly after their announcement?

On the matty forums someone asked about NA He-Man getting his armour and helmet. Scott said this was answered at the panel.
I must have missed the definitive answer from Scott on this, what was it?
The minimum he will come with is the harness, sword, and shield. The armor and helmet (or helmeted head) are being analyzed for cost, which means they will may be included or they may get dumped in Weapon Pak 4.
Press down on dragon's head. It sprays enemies with a jet of water!
Press down on a camera's shutter release. It will take pictures that tell stories!
Unfortunately, he tends to make assumptions that all fans are obsessed with seeking out every bit of information.
Casual fans may have questions, but not the time or desire to go searching message boards for an answer.

I just figure with most of Scotts answers it would be easier just putting yes, no, looking into it then when he writes things like that. Use search, it was addressed at a panel!! etc.
Much easier and better sounding if he just answers

Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
I think they might kill two birds with one stone and make Buzzsaw Hordak in Filmation colors. Since without the action feature he just has a buzzsaw in his chest sitting there, it makes sense that he would come with a new torso, new Hordak armor that when closed covers the full torso, and then paint him in the Filmation/Style guide/mini-comic colors. This also gives TG the out by saying Filmation Hordak is not planned right now.
That way people can use the full body armor on the old Hordak if they want to, or they can have Filmation Hordak doing his thang.
Of course, this doesn't please those who want Buzzsaw Hordak in vintage colors, but I'm not sure what to do about that.
The power of Grayskull compels you!
My daughter's Hebrew name is Shira.
I think that bow could be long to Calix. I mean, he probably would be more exp to tool than other figures--so maybe they would cut down on costs by just doing a repaint of the Hordak bow possibly?
Harken the coming of Dragstor!!
As much as I wish it was him, Mantenna comes with a grey bow. Although they did change the color of Hordaks bow so, it could be anybody. I really hope it's not a filmation Hordak.
