    Are you OK with the scale of Castle Grayskull announced at NYCC?

    As shown at NYCC on the B-Sheet, the size of Castle Grayskull in classic form seems to follow the same scale as in the original toy line in the 80's (The jaw-bridge let 1 regular figure go through).

    So, are you happy with the scale announced or would you have preferred CG to be bigger?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just to give an idea of what should be the size in classics :

    Perfect scale. I'm totally fine with it. With all the other awesome things they've added to the possibilities (three tiers and a place to put your WR, etc.), I'm totally fine with the scale. We all knew that CG would be expensive. Don't make it MORE expensive just so He-Man can ride Battlecat into the castle. Not worth the extra $100.

    I always wanted He-Man to ride on Battlecat through the gate into Castle Grayskull ever since I was a kid so I am slightly disappointed this still won't be the case for the new CG in Classics. But at least Vintage He-Man on Battlecat will be able to in this Castle Grayskull!
    I think $250 is already a huge amount of money for one Playset so any more than $250 and I highly doubt we'll get enough people to pre-order so I'm ok for what it is scale wise. I'm super excited how much work is going to be put into recreating the inside of the castle with all the extra features! To finally be able to get a Castle Grayskull in MOTUC is Totally Awesome!

    Ideally double the size would be awesome, but it's extremely unrealistic. so I'm good with this scale, no complaints from me.

    I would prefer a larger Grayskull but I'm fine with the scale as is.

    Well considering it's gonna be great to get it, I was already just satisfied with the figures, I kinda thought everything else (beasts, raider, packs) were gonna hurt the line; and in ways they slightly affected it [won't say hurt]. So it's cool. BTW: new pics added to the Org Facebook folder I shared shows the B-Sheet of Grayskull. If there's anyone that can please copy and post on forums, I've reached my limit here.

    Um. I think that He-Man on Battle Cat WILL fit in the doorway. It's 9 + inches high.

    I'm fine with the scale.

    It's great for me!
    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

    It would be cool if it was big enough for He-Man on Battle Cat to ride in with his sword aloft, but I'm good with whatever. It's Castle Freakin' Grayskull!!!

    I think it's as large as we could reasonably expect.
    Sure it'd be nice to have a 1:1 scale castle with four walls and all, but where would you put it?

    Size is perfect....I could honestly go for the statue of Grayskull being put out for what room I have, but another $100 or so gives you an actual larger playset that is sculpted by the 4H & direct from Mattel....

    I actually would prefer it to be a little bit smaller. Or at least not as wide and deep. It would make it easier to display. Right now I am really struggeling where to put it once I get it.

    For the money and the idea that it is Grayskull from vintage ...for today, it's going to be amazing, and if it was "Full Scale" it would never happen. Not to mention I dont want it that big and it would never have a place to go.

    This is perfect.

    I'd like to change my answer... originally said bigger but after Scott's video I think the scale is perfect. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to display it anywhere.

    It could always be bigger, but it's great for what it is.
