Not unexpected, given the "we have to check the big orders" delay (no reason to if the min hadn't been hit). I have no clue where I'm going to put it next year, of course, but, hey, that's never stopped me before.
But as great as the simple fact of getting a Classics Grayskull is, I think the implications here are even broader. The sinking subs undoubtedly gave the big wigs the impression that MOTUC was not long for this world. But now we have the biggest, most expensive offering ever made on Mattycollector meeting and passing the minimum orders (with more likely to come before January). Even the most stubborn of nay-sayers behind the scenes has to see not only the potential in the way this was offered, but the strength that must still lie in the brand for it to go over like this.
