I just saw the FILMATION sub poster and whoever chose the pictures wasn┤t really aware of the purpose. Most of them show FILMATION only characters but there are pictures of Angela, Flutterina, Mermista, Peekablue, Clawdeen or Glimmer which is weird enough but what┤s even more strange are the pictures of already released MOTUC characters like Adam, Adora, Fisto, Castaspella or Fang Man.
Clawful is there as well but since some consider his FILMATION look variant worthy, i didn┤t count him, although Mattel stated this FILMATION sub will only include FILMATION originals and no variants.
I think those characters shouldn┤t be on this particular poster but hey, that┤s just picky me
*Peekablue *Entrapta *Double Trouble *Mermista *Toy version Catra(blood red Prototype colors) *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Lizard-Man *Granita *Zilora *Battle Armor Marlena *Queen Veena *Calix *Prince Dakon *Pebble Ass..arghůPebblass(Minicomic) *Tung Lashor
Special wish: Female Snake Men
Everything looks AMAZING!!!
CG is a bit small, but whatever, it totally kicks all kind of behind!
$27 but a 100% new tool with no reuse Ram Man costs only $30.
I honestly thought that there was going to be a hangar or a sort of garage for Wind Raider.

There better not be any problem with the shipping combining for the Filmation sub with the main sub. I know the first figure probably won't combine, but that should be the only one. If I end up paying doubling shipping each month for the second half of the year, I won't be very happy.
* Yes, the door is too small - He-man needs to be able to stand in it. She-ra, too (isn't she a tad taller?).
* I don't get it - some say the dungeon isn't included, some say the grate isn't - why the heck are they showing things that aren't included? Are they at least going to be released? Like the Weapons Rack? I'm actually OK with that, but I want them with a definite time frame and a reasonable price. Of course I'd rather they be included at this high price point, but I will be most upset if they are not made available at all.
* I know it won't be as good, but the paint job better be dang close. I don't care if Scott has to fly to China and inspect every one as it comes off the finish line. I cannot paint and customize, I'm terrible - I want it to be done, and quality so it doesn't chip off taking it tuft of the box.
Besides Grayskull, super psyched about Filmation sub - though I hope some more familiar characters round out the sub. It would be a dream to get dual subs next year - just the 12 figs, amazing. I hope it's as successful as I think it will be.
Casta looks fantastic - her hair is perfect. Mantanna is also awesome - I'm glad people are pleased. I think he's a great combo of influences, and personally when I see him he looks like Mantenna, that's all I care about. I'll have to get two so I can display both heads.
Also pleasantly surprised with the new tier stands - but my god, PLEASE include two pegs for each figure slot!!!!!
Kowl, the know it owl!

On a separate note, based on the images shown of TOD Sorceress sitting on the thrown... is it actually possibly to remove the wings from either Sorceress figure without breaking them?
You guys are comparing huge pieces of mass market retail product with disposable junk pieces and carboard pieces.
WE ARE NOT GETTING ANY CARDBOARD PIECES HERE!! Everything is sculpted. We are getting large bells and whistles with this castle. You guys are also not getting your getting pieces of art here. The 4H worked night and day to sculpt CG for you guys. You guys know who sculpted Metroplex and the Turtle's Lair? It could have been nameless interns for all you know.
Get it over the size. It is a great size and we are getting tons of things with this castle. I completely understand why TG sometimes lashes out at you guys sometimes.
We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!
I┤m dissapointed by Castle Grayskull... Smaller than the b-sheet, no brick details on the inner walls, no dungeon... not worth the price, I won`t spend my money on this playset...

Updated the first post with some info, links and videos for easy of browsing.
I really can not believe we are getting this amazing, fully sculpted (no cardboard!) and fully painted castle full of accessories and people are arguing over an inch or two and saying it's not worth the money. Actually, I CAN believe it, it just boggles my mind.
This is Grayskull! This is the dream! People were paying $400 for just the front of it!
I think some people just let expectations get the best of them. I honestly think people who cancel their pre-orders will be kicking themselves once everyone gets their Castles and is loving them. But more power to you.
Do you think we'll eventually get a video of the panel so we can see the reveals that way like we did with Mattypalooza, etc?

I am very pleased with the look of Castle Grayskull. I really hope this leads to a Filmation Snake Mountain down the road.

Just got home, so I haven't looked up any information to go with the pics, but everything looks fantastic so far! NA He-Man just has me GEEKED. He's perfect (though it looks like his hand may have a slight problem holding the sword, but we'll see). I can't believe that we're getting the WHOLE deal with him! Last thing I need to find out is if they added the sword slot on the back of the armor like the toy.
King He-Man looks awesome as well, though it sucks that his sword is in his hand in the package. With a painted handle like that, it's adding to the chance that the paint will scrape off in his hand when I get 'em out of the package. Also, holding the weapon in-package stretches his hand out. Dunno why they keep doing that with some figures. Ah well, still an awesome figure all around!
Anyway, nice to see some production versions of some figures. Snake Face has come along nicely and his armor doesn't look any bigger than King Hsss'. Octavia is obviously not gona have bendy tenticles, but at least they're in a position for action, so that's cool. Castaspella has a clear shield to match her magic - AWESOME! She rounded out nicely with those items; perfect!
Next, the Filmation figures are lookin' good. Cool that Batros got a Spikor mace; I always thought that would be cool reused elsewhere. They reused items in the vintage line often, so it makes sense to get a generic item in different colors. Helps him fit in like he were in the vintage line (though honestly he looks like he fits in on looks alone). Shokoti is looking much better up close! Still a little plain, but I can see enough little details in the clothes to make me happy. Too bad she doesn't get a weapon of some sort, but I'm sure she doesn't need one.
Finally of course: Grayskull! Liking what I see. LOVE the spacesuit/robot thing! Too bad he doesn't move, but I honestly didn't expect him too. This is more than enough! Very cool to see him outside of a cardboard cutout. The whole setup has a nice amount of various items...at least two weapons that I can see; hopefully a few more. I'm gona have a heck of a time finding a nice spot for it, but I WILL. Oh yes.
Now, on to see what information has been written up about all the new stuff.
