    Icon Heroes Castle Grayskull Business Card Holder Arrival Thread

    You know, I almost completely forgot about this item- I preordered it so long ago. But apparently it's waiting on my doorstep right now courtesy of AFX & UPS! Pics to come... has anybody else gotten theirs yet?

    Mine will be here tomorrow
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I seem to have reached my photo upload limit, so this is what I got... and for the life of me can't figure out why it uploaded sideways... but here it is! It's small yet kinda heavy... a lot cooler in person than I was hoping! And it doubles as a Star Seed holder... and will eventually go to rest somewhere in the Castle Grayskull playset

    Great CG card holder. I knew it was small but it looks waaaay too small judging from zodak74 holding it in the palm of his hand. I thought it was a little bigger. Personally I can't wait for my ICON heroes CG to arrive. I think Feb.......cheers

    Mine was just delivered and it is MUCH SMALLER than I thought it was going to be, BUT I love it nonetheless

    I got my card holder and letter opener! I love the FILMation inspired design! Very cool! I've got it on my computer desk at home.

    I got mine. It's cool, but mine is missing two front teeth. I guess the drawbridge was flapping around in shipping, so two chipped off and were lying in the bag. I contacted AFX and they're going to send me a new one, so that's nice at least.

    So I received mine 2 weeks ago and 2 teeth were broken. Contacted AFX and they sent a replacement. The 2nd one also had a broken tooth! So they sent em a 3rd one! And guess what, it ALSO has a broken front tooth. WTH??

    Got mine with the letter opener, and I'm actually glad it isn't too big (not a lot of room on the computer desk). It really does look good, and mine came through fine (BBTS). I'm really liking that MOTU is spawning new products even without any media support, even if it is directed specifically at the collectors market rather than the mainstream.

    I got mine yesterday (also from BBTS - I had it preordered, but waited for some other collectible stuff to arrive to save on shipping) with both swords. It really looks sharp and I was pleasantly surprised that the jawbridge doesn't flop open at the drop of a hat. On the downside, it is a bit smaller that I expected, and I would have liked for the top to be able to hold two swords (especially since Adam and Faker swords are supposed to be on their way later this year).

    I have nothing but good things to say about the swords - they're a lot bigger, sturdier, and of higher quality than I expected. They're like spot-on versions of the MOTUC swords in design terms, and the paint apps are even better. Now, I just need some mail to open, which I'm actually looking forward to - and how bad is it that I'm actually thinking about opening bills with the Skeletor sword and saving the He-Man sword to open 'good' mail?
