    There was NO hold or charge of $0.00 for my 12 castles either.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

I am of the honest belief that Mattel just doesn't care about the MOTU property & Scott is the only one fighting to keep it in the minds of the people and they issue these insane goals for him to meet.
    Well, they have to pay the 4 Horseman for their work on the Castle from that amount, and Rudy Obrero for the new art for the box. They need to make molds of all the pieces, and pay for production of the castle in China, and the printing of the box in wherever. I imagine some part of Ruben's salary will be paid out of it as well, and maybe even some of Scott's (though I seem to remember reading that he more or less does his work on MOTUC in his spare time). I'm sure there are lots if people working logistics on this line that we don't even know about who have some part of their salary coming out if this.

    Anyway, after all that, no I don't think Mattel is making all that much off the castle. Hopefully, the 500+ we've tallied up on the org is actually only a small portion of the total units sold. Regardless if what you think of the other people involved in making Grayskull a reality, I want the 4 Horsemen and their assistants to be well-compensated for their wonderful work.

    Hmmm....the thermometer has not moved in a couple days. I know the thermometer doesn't actually mean crap, since we have no idea how it is scaled or what each tick mark represents. But still, it makes me feel better when I see it move. Hope the lack of movement is just laziness on Matty's part and not because sales have been so slow it's not even worth updating. *cringe*

    Sweet! I'll take that to mean we're at 130% of what is needed.
    I have also taken to assuming that because they named their new thermometer "thermometer130.jpg" it means we're at 130%.

    Uhg...1 tick isn't good enough. This has dampened my spirits slightly. I sure hope there are a TON of procrastinators out there waiting for the final days....

    Really? Matty seems to think it's been updated? Though it's harder to tell where the end is than how many are filled, so maybe people are counting the marks differently.
