    I wouldn't be willing to pay much for Castle Grayskull. $125 maybe $150 shipped. So probably even less for Snake Mountain. I have no interest in paying high prices for these castles. Really all I want is Castle "Fronts" to put my figures on. These full on "Playsets" drive the price up way too high.

    With the playsets being that expensive, they need to hold off until the end when the figures are done, and many more people would be able to afford just a playset, without worrying about paying for figures also.
    that's very selfish imo. It s not because you cannot buy you have to wish nobody can have this great item.
    Even if I didn't have enough money to purchase one I would love to see one and see a lot of collector fellows get one.
    So the way you think is incomprehensible for me

    I would want Eternia before Snake Mountain. I just think Eternia is a better play set. The one thing I didn't like about the snake mountain play set; is they had a door on top of the mountain that went to no where.

    If they could actually design and deliver something even remotely close to this, I would. Not for $350, but for the same cost as Grayskull. Snake Mountain doesn't need to have as many moving features, IMO, but should be just a touch bigger or wider in some areas than it is in that mock-up just so that the figures can stand on certain areas without teetering over (like the stairs, for example). But I do so love that mock-up! And to have it so that you could spread the whole playset out like that, rather than having it just open at a 90 degree angle like Grayskull, is a fantastic way to fully represent both the Filmation and the classic toy version of the mountain all at once

    I would love to get a Snake Mountain but $350 sounds a bit steep. For that price, i'd assume it'd have a few more extra features or something in which case I would buy it.

    The reason I set the price so high on this playset was to make sure any offical eyes might gauge fan reaction. I know $350 is very expensive but I for one dont want futher mistakes like we saw with GRAYSKULL. The size issue really threw alot of stuff out scale wise and those extra inches would have made for a more perfect playset. I dont wanna hear about scale issues with Snake Mountain due to price. I also think its asking way too much to get a Bone Throne and table as in Filmation. The Throne alone is a big complex bit of plastic to do it right and alot of detail..I know this from making my own....that piece alone done right might cost $50 in todays market.. Please remember to be realistic when answering..

    I cannot imagine how cool Snake Mountain would have to be to get me to spend 350. I would if I had that much free money to spend, but I dont.

    Well there is a much smaller statue that people are going to buy for $300 coming out this year. $350 for a full sized playset is a steal compared to that!

    I would like to but I can't even if I could afford it. It took me a lot of thinking to get Castle Grayskull and I don't know if I'll be convinced to get it.

    Yes, I'd pre-order it now, for payment in a year or so, if it's well-done.

    Sign me up, my wife wants the castles more then me getting the figures. But the snake mountain should be based off filmation or a hybrid of both.

    If they went with the same design as the Icon Heroes statue (likely) we'd be talking $500 for a MOTUC sized playset. I personally can't stand that design, and would only pay for something that completely ignored the vintage toy and melded aspects of Filmation and 200X.

    Yes, but this time I want a more accurate playset, with also Skeletor's bone throne and scrying table.

    At 350 no way. It's just not worth it. Despite my love of Masters there is no way I would do it at 350. CG was overpriced and after I got it out of the box it was a bit underwhelming, the value wasn't there. I don't think Mattel will produce a Snake Mountain before this line ends. The price is just out of control and completely unrealistic.

    Just stop for a minute and think about that: 350.00.

    Thats a lot of cash for a mass produced piece of plastic. The over-inflated prices of new toys is just starting to wear me down. It's tiring.

    True, although I can see many improvements being made to Snake Mountain, up to and including a complete redesign to fit the Filmation theme. Skeletor's throne room would look amazing on the inside! Or the Slime Pit featured in the episode where he intended to create an army of skeletons to terrorize the villages of Eternia (maybe this could be an addon much like the Wind Raider's ability to snap into Castle Grayskull's base?) Perhaps Snake Mountain could be given a hiding hole to place the Golden Disks of Knowledge in, as a nod to the cartoon. How about a trap door in the form of the transport portal (giant snake in the floor) that ate Skeletor and was later used by him and his minions to escape to the lower sections of the mountain when the mountain was transformed into Serpentos? Or a sticker on the floor representing the portal in which the Snake Men broke free from their prison in Despondos?
