I watched the 2 videos of the pre-sell castle and the measurements. And yes it is smaller but its not to much smaller. That inch or 2 would have did wonders but if they get the draw bridge sunken I think it will be great.

i didnt read this whole thread..so i might not be the first to say..250-300$ for a freaking MOTU castle is ridiculous..really? Its not a vintage original castle its new..it has no connection with my childhood like the original did. Its going to cost what,50$ if that to even make it? This just shows me how much these companies do NOT appreciate us fans..BUT yet take advantage of us..Im sure im the only person that feels this way..
$50 would not even cover the freight shipping on 1000 of these from China
A lot of you guys tend to forget its not just materials to make it, you have to pay for the sculpting, the prototyping, the steel molds, the packaging, the freight and that all comes out of the same pot

Fear is faith in failure
The steel molds for CG command a staggering cost, that's true.
Gotta say though, I'd feel a lot more comfortable investing the kind of money we're being asked to if we could get assurances the molds won't be used for retail versions of CG down the road . . .
I'm waiting for the big repaint though, the pink Castle, with Gold spray highlights, glitter, and purple flocking on the dome.
Remember that one? It's when Disco Skeletor finally takes over.
Really though, I agree, IF it went into retail... Then it wouldn't likely have everything we're getting in this one.
But Mattel is a business, and it just makes sense for them to re-use whatever they can possibly re-use.
Maybe say the movie does happen, and maybe the design for Grayskull is close, such that all they need to do is add a smaller tooled piece here and there to change up the look a little?
And what's to say this castle couldn't work for the mini Masters if they ever get made?
