    I noticed only two "complaints" about scale. There was one saying that the bridge should be bigger. And mine, of course, somewhere among the first ten posts. And I actually said I want a smaller one.

    After all these years in limbo, I can’t believe it’s actually going to get released. Snake Mountain looks absolutely amazing.

    It’s gonna stick out a little on the shelf, but it’ll fit!!

    Bittersweet.

    I sold off my collection after the disastrous QC Wave 1 issues from Super 7.

    It would have been great to get this, but I have no faith in their QC. Sad, cause had S7 paid more attention to detail, I would still be an All-In Collector.

    I would have loved displaying this playset. It sure does look amazing in prototype form.

    And to add insult to injury, Super 7's lack of attention to Collector's Choice continues. So it appears I definitely got out at the right time. I refuse to pay $40+ each for Filmation quality figures. Especially if they are of the same quality as Waves 1.

    And the lack of attention to detail and consistency from S7, shown with the Laughing Prince Adam Filmation figure being produced with the Classics sword and not the Filmation is just another cautionary tale for this line going forward.

I'm planning for the worst considering Hasbro was charging $500 for the Sail Barge and had to sell 5000 of those to make it worth their time. I don't know how the size compares since it's a different scale, but I would imagine it's equally as complex.
    I feel exactly the same way. But so far, Super 7 has released everything they said they would, albeit with some QC issues along the way.

    I believe Dan's video walkthrough showed the trap door behind the gate.

    Besides doesn't Grayskull have a lot more separate and functioning parts? Snake Mountain probably only has the bridge and table and throne being the only other separate tools? Then again it has a more detailed interior which won't help cost... Still I think $350-$400 should be their aim, otherwise a lot of people just won't bother.
    I thought Castle Grayskull originally came out for like $350, no? It felt like that much, anyway. I imagine this playset, which appears larger, and seems to have about as much going on inside, would/should be about $500 shipped (look at Hasbro's Jabba's Sail Barge) - maybe more if they plan on doing a Kickstarter where the more people who order, the more add-ins S7 can supply.

    I think I can handle about $500. I showed my six-year-old daughter this morning as soon as she woke up, and she literally squealed with delight. We love our Castle Grayskull, but the villains always have to hole up on an empty shelf in our adventures.

    I wonder if there will be a net into which the figures can fall from the trap door?

    I have kept all my old Matty emails, and I bought one Castle Grayskull on 10/16/2012 for $250 with $36.85 shipping, for a total of $286.85, and another Castle, that I ended up selling, on 11/03/2012 with the shipping price of $19.65 (I think they had problems calculating shipping at first), for a total of $269.65. I do remember Scott saying they were heavily discounting the shipping on this thing.

    So, almost 6 years ago, pre-order customers got it for just under $300. I think the starting price was $300 when it was put up on Matty, not including shipping. So, for something that is much bigger, being made by a much smaller company, in likely much smaller quantities, with shipping and plastic prices likely higher now than then, a price tag of $400-$500 seems in the right range.

    I wonder if they plan on making this at the Mattel Factory or the new Super7 factory. I would feel much more confident dropping $500+ on this if they use the old Mattel Factory.

    So, the wolf tower (former microphone) looks to have a door in it. Does anyone else think that maybe that's where Skeletor keeps the Havoc Staff? Other ideas?

    The face on the right side looks like a fan custom unfortunately. I miss the super professional look of the original ... the rest is great but that face. Looks like it was sculpted from Super Sculpey

    Ugh I want this so bad but I just don't have the space and if it really is going to be $500 I just can't justify putting forth that much money.

    Quoting myself from another thread:

This appears to be an indication that they are ready to start that release strategy, and no surprise that the more popular and higher-selling of the two lines is shown first at SDCC. I would expect that once the pre-order for this Club Grayskull Wave 3 is done, we will then see the Collector's Choice Wave 3, perhaps either at Power Con, or maybe a little later at NYCC.

    I think it’s also plausible that this could conceivably take the place of a CC wave. My credit card debt would appreciate that.

    As others have said, there might not even be a CC wave right now. You can only release so much stuff at any given time before you shoot yourself in the foot. This isn't the Matty model where they could show all of this stuff because it was spread out and you didn't have to pay for it 100% upfront.

    I don't think that they have plans to show off stuff that isn't on the verge of going live via Pre-Orders. You've already got people 100% paid and all in waiting on Wave 2. They just launched the Adam Pre-Order. Now they've shown off W3 Filmation and SM. That's a good deal of stuff hanging over people's heads right now and I'm not even counting the PC exclusives which is another added expense.

    This could be it for a bit, although I'd be shocked not to see any thing at all at PC.

    I had exactly that thought. It looks very odd. But everything else looks promising. It needs some more shading though to give it some texture.

    Above the Throne you can see a picture. I see Hordak on the left and Adora on the right, like facing each other. But in the middle I also see a Hordak and Adora as figures. Any idea about that "painting hanging on the wall"?

    It is the two pack of their re-Action Exclusive She-Ra vs Hordak which seems to reflect in the glas.

    I am new to this site and before joining recently hadn't followed MATU since the mid 80's, but I'm going to guess the demand for Snake Mnt is going to be less then Castle Grayskull. Thinking this might keep the price in the 300 range. Yes? No?
