    First in thirty?

    Why do the advertisements on the Matty page and in the email say ours the first Castle Grayskull in thirty years? We just got one ten years ago. And one twenty years before that.

    The first castle came out around 82' and the 200x castle didn't exist in my world. Apparently not theirs either.

    "You've waited over 30 years for it"

    I think it's reference to the original Mark Taylor prototype-version of Grayskull 1981 (the one seen in Alcala mini-comics).

    The vintage Grayskull was different, then 200x was even more different than what they had "originally" planned.

    I was wondering the same thing too. Thanks for clearing that up, Jukka!

    Although, didn't TG say something about there not being a mat around the castle in MOTUC like the first design had?

    The corner down says

    You have waited for 30 years

    the says based on the 1981 prototype.

    I was all of three at that time so, and four when I actually got my Grayskull and probably didn't know much difference from the minicomic and the actual playset.
