    It kind of looks like he's wearing a smock.

    Eh, things happen.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    The next video will be, "Castle Grayskull won't be shipping out until sometime in the first quarter of 2014..."
    It's all about being polished when it counts!

    I guess working on those ravens really took up the Horsemen's time.

    Pretty sure most of the sculpting was done already, the rest was up to Mattel Design, Making the Molds, Factories in China producing and painting the test run, and plenty of other things I have not much knowledge of?

    Aren't they constantly changing it to see what they can do? dding stuff, taking stuff away, and lowering that jaw bridge? And then you have communication with the Chinese factory, which is out of their control. Mattel can SAY "Do it by X date or you're fired," but firing them would leave them with no factory at all.

    I'm taking this as a good sign
    Hopefully it means they're taking their time making sure they address fan requests and fix major flaws in the castle.

    good, it's billed when it's shipped, so ship it in the New Year, End of the year is always an expensive time
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    They should have had the final sculpt done....Mattel should have the prototype already and are scratching their heads over it at the moment....

    Sometimes in my head I picture the design team being like watching Beast Man and Trap Jaw in Filmation trying to make toys together....
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    "Amazing, amazing playset !"... but not final. So we actually CAN'T BE SURE AT ALL that the final product will be "amazing" and will measure up to what we were told.

    More people will drop their CG pre-order, I'm afraid.

    This is pathetic. It's an obvious attempt to stop people from cancelling by showing them the sub par finished item.

    They should just scrap the whole thing. What an absolute failure.

    That would be nice if that is the case.
    Hopefully it's taking them longer than expected to scrap that Wind Raider landing pad inside the castle that seemingly nobody but someone at Matty is asking for.....

    Conspiracy!

    Would you rather they said that it wasn't final and that tiny changes can still be made than "This is your Castle people." I am sure he is just covering himself here, its no big deal. Let's wait until we see the thing and see the changes before we get pitchforks...

    I'd rather they take their time to make sure its the best it can possibly be. It would have been nice to see the final product though - I'm guessing we'll see it around Power Con now.

    The largest toy company in the world continues to hit them out of the park!

    I for one wish it had been charged - the Aussie dollar has slipped and the wretched thing just shot up in cost for all of us down under.

    Surely the castle has to begin manufacture really, really soon in order to make its release date? Wouldn't upset me if it did move into 2014, however. Any extra money-raising time is appreciated.

    Exactly, it's a non-issue for me personally. It's done when it's done, we'll see a near final product. Which sounds good to me.

    Well this kind of makes you question the 1 year away and can't make any changes that TG keeps telling us. It's looking like the castle will slip in release date, but isn't it Mattel who has said that legal makes them release all the years items in the year? They can't have it go into the next year?

    I believe that is only for Subscriptions that have a date on them (i.e. 2013 Club Eternia). This had a tentative release date, so I don't think it would be a legal issue if it slipped to 2014. I'd rather it be in 2014 if it means they get things right.
