    What Would You Cut From Castle Grayskull?

    One thing that got my attention from Pixel Dan's CG video is that Toyguru didn't guarantee that all the accessories presented at NYTF will make the final cut by SDCC. It's a bit disappointing to hear but after compiling the list of extra accessories, I can see that it's a lot of stuff to include and I wouldn't be surprised to see some items pulled from the final castle. So I wonder: Which items would you prefer to see cut, if you had to let some go?

    Vote for as many items as you want...Or don't want...Sigh, you know what I mean, heheh!

    I don't care for:

    - Windraider base
    - Ladder
    - Grayskull robot
    - all the stupid terminals
    - removable handle
    - bat jetpack

    I'd happily trade those for the dungeon grate

    Get rid of the pointless and nonsensical Wind Raider base, for sure.

    Here are my votes:

    Wind Raider Base: There's only one vehicle that belongs in Castle Grayskull and it's the Talon Fighter!
    Grayskull Robot: He's cool, I know...But I'd rather see the empty shell scrapped and have them release POG Gladiator as a full figure later on (Traveling Con Exclusive?) and tie him into the story as the Grayskull Robot so we have a fully articulated version!
    Throne Room Computer Terminal: It just looks like the Grayskull Robot's boombox to me, heheh!
    Dungeon Shield: I can put Castle Grayskullman's shield there instead.
    Weapons Rack Mace and Gun: They can be included in the upcoming Weapons Pack, along with some more silver weapons!

    Crusader, I like how you think...If all that could afford us the Dungeon Grate, then that would be a good trade!

    I put my vote down for Other, as in i don't want to see anything further cut if it came down to it. It's bad enough those tools at MTV Geeks had shown the picture with the dungeon(?) door that will apparently only be a sticker. I wouldn't mind Mattel swapping that WR base for the dungeon(?) door rather than use a sticker!

    none!!! We got screwed on the size and now they want to take more away. People stop taking the abuse. Tell Mattel to go south of heaven.

    By the way I canceled my Grayskull order. Scott said if you don't like it then cancel. That's what I did. Just returning the wonderful attitude he feeds us.

    The Wind Raider spot is useless and makes no sense...

    I DON'T want to cut the Wind Raider part because that area will be a good place to stand figures on. I don't have a Wind Raider and I'm not interested in getting one to display there (the whole idea is goofy to me too), but it's a good stage for figures.

    Bat Jetpack: It's not a jetpack! There's no way for it to attach to a figure. It has a handle, so I guess a figure is meant to hold it and it carries them up in the air or something? I don't know, it doesn't make sense to me.

    Dungeon Cell: It's too small to be practical, and why would I want to hide a figure in there? I'm considering leaving these pieces in the box anyway.

    Grayskull Robot: This is a very expensive piece with all the paint apps. I'd rather they held him back to do him right later down the line. A hollow, static robot seems like no fun to me. It will take up the space of a figure, but without any of the fun of a figure. He can't be posed in battle scenes, he just stands there, taking up space. I'll probably end up keeping that in the box too, so I have more room for figures in the castle.

    The Wind-Raider stand is utterly stupid.

    I voted for:

    Windraider base
    Grayskull robot

    I'd much rather have the dungeon grate over both of those items.

    I'd cut the Wind Raider base regardless of wether or not we get something in return. It is a purposeless piece in both function and positioning in the castle and as much as Scott's intention with including it was to sell more Wind Raiders (and in turn we get more vehicles) its not going to do that.

    But cutting just that piece is not going to allow them to include the dungeon grate. The major cost of the grate is in the deco as he explained. Perhaps we should be lobbying for a reduced or no-decoed version of the grate as it has a higher probability of being included that way. Personally, I'd prefer an un-painted one over a sticker.

    The jet pack and orb holder also don't do much for me so if that gets us closer to getting the less-decoed grate, I'd sacrifice them as well.

    Funally, as much as I wish the robot was a figure or at least had removable armor that a figure could wear, I can't see losing him as he is an integral part of the throne room for me because of his presence in the vintage castle.

    just the base. though i actually like the idea of both sides of the castle having a connectible floor.

    if the hole for the stand comes with a plug to cover it if not used with the stand tha would be great. as it is ill probably put the tod sorceress orbstand over it with the starseed in it (if the orbstand will cover it. even if it doesnt fit ill make it work)

    love the new weapons and bat jetpack.

    everything else is great so far. excited to see what is next.

    and i for one have no problem buying the prison monster grate latter seperatly. much like the weapons pack with the cut accessories, im just glad if i get it, not how i got it.
