    What have you done with YOUR Castle Grayskull preorder?

    After seeing some of the comments in the various Castle Grayskull threads, I'm curious to see hard numbers on what fans (who preordered) really think and how they are expressing their thoughts/concerns.

    This poll is for those who preordered CG in either window. I want to know if you have already cancelled any preorder you may have, are you considering canceling your preorder, or are you (like me) pretty dang happy with the Castle Grayskull we're getting and have no intention of canceling your preorder.

    There are little tweaks I wouldn't mind, but nothing critical keeping me away.

    I'm keeping my pre-order but I'm not as ecstatic as I was when it was first announced.

    If things drastically change when the final product is revealed at SDCC I'll cancel, but I doubt that's going to happen. Really looking forward to displaying all my figures with the Castle.

    Keeping! I do with the entrance had more headroom and that the dungeon window was higher.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    This poll is interesting. Five people already have cancelled (out of the pollers). Just curious.....what would happen now that they have offered cancellations, if the number of cancellations made the total number of remaining orders drop below the original goal mark needed back in November to make them? Highly unlikely for sure. Though it does surprise me I must admit that people are cancelling. Not that I care if any certain person cancells or not, it's obviously not my business and I don't really care, but it does surprise me.

    I wouldn't be surprised if day-of-sale stock is comprised mostly, if not entirely, of cancelled pre-order quantity, personally.

    I am still super stoked! I would like a little angrier look of CG, but I'm 100% happy with it being as is!

    Good point, I guess cancellations now will help the day of sales buyers...and Matty because the price will be higher....that could explain why they don't seem to be too upset about people cancelling....they put them up day of sale for more money and make more cash......You are wise mjharwood.

    The size difference is offensive for the loyal customers? YES
    The size difference makes somethin' in the castle really laughable, like the prison and the entrance size? YES
    So I understand all the concerns about the castle especially the concerns of the loose collectors but there's no way that we'll have another castle so, as a MOC colllector, I understand all your concerns but I'll keep my Castle Grayskull... I'm dreamin' about it since the 1984....
