Well said Barezz.
I wonder if it's really a minority of those that were genuinely blown away. If that's really true, then I'm in that minority.
But I'm biased for one.
2, A huge fan of the early minicomics so the look of this castle is a home run for me.
and 3... I'm an enthusiastic dad that will play with this castle with my children.
The scale works with the figures, I see your joke there Lay-Ze, and am slightly ignoring it.
I was recently looking over my photos from NYTF, as well as some of the studio shots of it and I'm still very excited to get this castle. Love the secret doorways, the orb room, I've already picked out the shields I wanna hang on the walls, good grief I'm already thinking of the furniture and how to decorate the dang thing?! How un-manly is that?!
(BTW, Grayskull-Man's shield will go next to the front door, with the weapon's pack, teal King Carnivus shield going next to the elevator. )
I love the bulk of the floors, the sculpt in the wood, the computer panels. Look at that exterior! It's gorgeous!!! You can choose to let the scale STILL overshadow everything else that works for this castle, but I'll choose to build up my excitement for what it is, and remember, that HOLY CRAP WE'RE GETTING CASTLE GRAYSKULL!
It is bigger than all others before it. It has more features than all others before it. It's sculpt and design and paints by the 4HM makes it more beautiful than all others before it.
It is a crown jewel for this line, no doubt about it. Everyone that is working on it LOVES it and is bustin' their humps for it. From 4H Studios to Mattel.
I'm tired of reading all the negative posts about it, you're not the only voice in the matter, so I'm expressing my point over and over just like you're doing with yours. I would encourage anyone else that shares my opinion to share as much if they wish. The "canceling my Grayskull" polls still show the majority keeping theirs. Don't let anyone else spoil your fun.
Grayskull is alive and well and being made for Classics as we speak!
