    Looks around the board and you will notice a few dozen.

    Anyhow, Disney is taking over almost everything nowadays and I won't be surprised if MOTU becomes a Disney property to be honest with you, probably they'll treat it with some respect after all...

    We could only hope that Disney acquires this property. Completely agree. Look at what they have done with Marvel.

    MOTUC NEEDS: Sssqueeze, Dragstor, Saurod, Blast Attack, & Lord Masque.

    c'mon..relax. I think they were always gonna build a castle. All this was probably to generate sales. If there was any minimum, they hit it and that Toyguru guy is just waiting to announce on some goofy video..which takes time to film, post etc...

    Like I said before, I am pretty sure we made the goal ages ago and Scott is just holding back the thermometer to cause a bit of a panic on the desperate and get them to buy more castles. All these 'verifying last minute bulk orders' nonsense smells like BS to me.

    If it doesn't go through, I'll cancel my card just in case it does go through later.
    I haven't waited 30 years for this, its nice but its not my life's dream lol. Just another few cards short of a full deck at Mattel. In fact they've been riding off their 4H trump card for ages now. I wonder how many people saw the "currently unavailable" as a confirmation of sorts that the castle def had not gone through and began to call in to cancel? How many more preorders could we have gotten in by now?
    Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.

Keeping the pre-order open is simply to allow them to get more orders in but that's a matter of how many they make with the mold. What we're waiting for now is if they have done enough to go ahead and make the mold. Scott said on the COTFO podcast that he believes if they hit around 97% or so they'll probably go ahead as it's almost a given the rest would be made up in the extra time.
    So that was actually the case after all. Thanks for the clarification.

    Yeah, could you imagine Mikey-Mouse is holding a light-saber in one hand and the Power-Sword in the other?! That it'll be the day...

    that might hold true If the preorder page was still open during this time.. but it has been closed for many hours now.

    I think the delay now is Mattel giving ppl a 24-72 hour window to reply an verify they placed a valid preorder.

    Probably a few thousand. Nobody orders the first 3 weeks. It's always after the pre-order ends.
