    Do You Think MOTUC Grayskull Will Happen?

    I dont know about you guys, but I check matty collector every day to see how far along we are, and the anticipation is killing me, but also part of me thinks, nah, at the last minute we'll get enough orders to have CG be a reality. Like with the sub or this year, like last 2 hours we made it to 130% ..... so I wonder if the same thing will happen here.

    What do you guys think? as sort of a, lets try to predict the future ... poll. = )

    I agree. It may be a last minute thermometer update. But I think we will make it.

    Of course it will happen. At the last minute Mattel will raise the thermometer because I do think they purposely hold it down for extra sales. It's business folks.

    I personally don't think we are already at 100% of the min goal. the meter as of now is 71% at best if they are holding it back ; which I don't think they are after the Young Justice 2 Pak failure; that we might be close to 78%... at best.

    But again! I don't think they are holding the numbers back at all after the Young Justice 2 Pak failure. I think we are where we are... an at this point I think ppl are OVERLY optimistic that ppl will just miraculously show at the last day an order enough... we still need 29% ppl! that's a significant chunk of orders and $$$...

    Time to kick up the campaigning guys! An time to start considering if you can resell a second one just so this happens!

    I have to agree with the Evil One on this. PLEASE don't resort to these kinds of methods! As doing so would immediately hurt the chances of a Filmation Snake Mountain later.

    Downside is you just tipped your hand & Mattel will use black plastic for spite now.

    I'm sure it will go through, Snake Mountian...thats the one I think is uncertain. As much as I want one (& will totally pre-order) people are having a hard enough time justifying the price & figuring out where to put Grayskull. Meaning Snake Mountian will be a tough sell & one hell of an uphill battle.

    I want it to, but frankly I think it looks dire.

    Oh, mind you, I verilly hope I'm wrong. I kinda expect to be. But deep down I feel like it's just too much and there are just too few of us.

    Here's to being wrong

    I think it will happen.. BUT ONLY IF WE DONT SLACK OFF AN GET OVERCONFIDENT!

    I HIGHLY recommend that we go ahead an order a few extra just to resell at profit or to scalp-or OR just to keep MOC in a closet somewhere an sell at MAJOR MAJOR profit years later.
    Which is why I purchased 2, one for me + 1 to store MOC an sell later.

    I guess I watched the wrong He-Man cartoon then. I missed the episode that had He-Man telling the children that the ends justify the means.

    I think Castle Grayskull will get made. With all of that money pumped in?

    I'd love to see Mattel turn down all of those orders, even if it is close to 100%. They'll keep it open until January to maximize the orders.

    I think we'll all be very happy...
    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 better happen.

    I think a failure of this pre-order will be very embarassing for Mattel I hope it happens.
