    See, this is why I always referred to that Skeletor as Mispaint Variant Skeletor (as opposed to Repaint). It looks like a prototype from before it's painted. Seriously, when I got that figure, I thought I got lucky and got some rare figure that somehow avoided the painting process. When it turned out that it was a real variant and the only one the store had left, I was very disappointed that I never got a real Skeletor.

    Anyway, I think Grayskull looks pretty nice right now. I definitely understand the criticism I've seen, but seeing as I can't justify the money anyway, it's ultimately irrelevant to me.

    I did... it still does not look like Nepthu to me at all.

    Nepthu would be bare chested with a blue ring at top of the core buck... I mean look at this enlarged image..



    It does not match Seahawks color patterns either... no browns, no light blue on either side of the ne [that would be EASILY visible at this viewing angle].. it .. almost looks like a dwarf-like "chunky" style character.

    I see red on the mid chest are that looks like a beard, dark blue or grey shades of color on what appear to be shoulder armor on the shoulders. Dark blue on the legs. IT appears to have a red X shaped harness under the brown/red beard....

    I mean look at the images of the figures... below... the color locations and general rough shapes dont even match up..

    Nepthu

    Still pretty sure it's Nepthu. I think you're mind is just filling in some of the blanks. You can see the crystal bird, as others have pointed out. This might help for comparison's sake. What you're seeing as blue legs are just his boots. The harness is actually his loin cloth. Because of the angle, his head is hidden.

    Still not impressed. The sculpt is great or wouldn't it have been done by the 4 Horsemen, but the interior features are the epitome of silliness.

    If it was in scale with the figures (ie: Zombihamma's sculpt) I might have consider it but as it is... it's just a missed opportunity in my book.

    Anthony's like a hawk,i'm telling you,
    he could see a rat running a thousand feet under.
    But it seems like you're right guys,the transculent bird gives a quite reliable indication.

    Can see it now, these will be the final colors, then there will be another video after people recieve there castles in these colors.

    Then there will be a video about how he said these were the final colors.

    Wasn't He-Man on battle cat supposed to be able to pass through the door?

    Pre-orders are selling on Ebay well in excess of that. If it's a quick sell out when it comes up for sale, $300 will look like a bargain. Probably won't be another Grayskull of this effort for 10+ years..... if that.

    It's Nepthu, look really close at the packaged pics of him, the white belt and the orange sash. It's him. Plus he's a big favorite of Scott's....Look at the placement of the crystal bird and all, it's him.

    Seriously?! When Scott picks up the Castle, it makes him look like a 5 year old lugging around a playset! It's the size of his entire torso! I'm not sure how much bigger people were expecting/wanting. I mean, we're not going to be able to walk inside one. As is, it's pretty darn big. I just hope this will fit on my dresser, like I planned! Seeing how darn big it is...not too sure, but I sure as heck am keeping my pre-order. I love it a lot. Could there be some better interior accessories? Yes. Could some things have been done better (like lining the trap door/dungeon up). You betcha. This, still, is probably the best Castle Grayskull playset* that's ever been made...or ever WILL be made.

    I think it looks gorgeous, I'm happy with the size and I LOVE the Mattel/the 4H listened to all/most of the concerns people had about Castle Grayskull and fixed nearly all of them. Grade A, in my book.

    *The polystone environment Castle Grayskull is amazing and I love it, BUT it's not a playset.

    I don't think it will retain its value honestly. I'm just not that impressed. For $300 It should have no stickers and be fully loaded. It should be more in scale and the trap door should lead to the dungeon. The Throne should be able to be utilized without having to jack up the sorceress' feathers, ect. I'm just very glad I didn't preorder it. As far as another Grayskull in the future....there will be one as soon as the new movie comes out.....and it won't be $300 bucks. And in a few years I'll buy a classics Grayskull at Big Lots for $20....lol.

    The mass marketed Grayskull, if there ever is a movie, still won't be close to this scale. Most likely it'll be some jacked up new vision of Grayskull to match the movie look. The last two weren't to this scale either. Sometimes I think people feel it should have running water and plumbing installed lol.
    As for $20, I'll just assume that's a joke of exaggeration and call off the paddy wagon. =)

    I think some people were wanting it impossibly big. Like, 15" tall castle door tall.
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    People.

    Trust me. I thought it was small when I saw the pics after Toy Fair.

    It's HUGE.

    I am SO glad i got to see / play with it at sdcc.

    It's GIGANTIC.

    DO NOT CANCEL.

    You WILL regret it.

    My only regret is That they did not tool the throne to accommodate the wings of the sorceress on either side of the arms of the chair

    There is a actually a logical place where the mold could be filled in to reduce the Arms of the chair on either side.

    Dan pointed it out to Scott. Scott said no because it was already tooled.

    But the mold could be filled to reduce the back end of the chair arms. That would allow for her wings to sit such that her arms could sit on the arm rests.
