    I'm eagerly excited to get this, even though I'm a genuine LEGO collector, builder and brick designer. I'm getting more than one eventually when the price drops down.

    Can't wait to see this brick line thriving with time, so much potential awaits it.

    Cool, I didn’t notice before that He-Man comes with an Alcala power sword.

    Have these images been shared yet? They're on the pre-order page on Amazon.

    I pre-ordered it from this website in Belgium, I know the guy who runds the site, he’s a great dude.

    For those of you in Europe, he can currently order it from the States and offer it for. EUR 350,00. That’s the cheapest I’ve found in Europe, other sites are usually 380-399 Euros.

    If you want this, you can order it here: https://www.wawc.be/star-wars/castle...ion-set-constr

    No, we only knew there’d be a Teela included but not that it’d be a variant.

    Green Goddess Teela was in the one of the pictures that Bat4life1 included at the start of the thread. That picture of the figures also showed the Sorceress, red Beastman, and moustachless Man-at-Arms.

    Mega Construx did a sneak peek back in February, it has the box art and also an image each of He-Man and Skeletor (they're a little different from the already released versions too).

    Amazon still lists June 30th release date. Both Game Stop and Amazon are at $249.99 price tag. Anyone see it any lower (US)?

    I haven't had occasion to buy anything from Paulmartstore, but he is a registered He-Man.org forum member with a marketplace rating that you can look up.
    Maybe there will be other retailers that will start to list the product as well when it's closer to the actual release date.

    Does anyone have an estimate of the dimensions of the castle? I'm trying to figure out if I have room on my shelf, but I think the dimensions listed on the websites are for the box and not the actual built building...

    Nevermind, found the picture with the actual dimensions on it:

    Just got into MOTU Construx, so just discovered this thread. This forthcoming Castle Grayskull looks superb, and I don't mind the "blocky" appearance, given that it fits with the bricks that make up the castle. I was a huge fan of the 1980's Vintage version, though don't have this anymore. Never got the MOTU Classics version due to the expensive price point.

    However, I don't anticipate getting this, for two reasons:

    -This is way overpriced @ $250.00, especially given that it's a relatively small "playset". The MOTU Classics CG was only about $100 more (MSRP) & was much, much bigger. I don't care that they're charging more for this Construx due to the "Lego-like" aspect of the pieces; it's still way too expensive.

    -It will take forever to put together.

    It's $0.07 / brick, which is generally how you calculate the value of these things. Compared to the soon-to-be-released Tantive IV from LEGO -- $199.99 & 1768 pieces = $0.11 / brick -- this is a great price. Admittedly, Mega bricks aren't as well-made as LEGO, so there's that (though they have gotten much better recently). It's also cheaper than the Mega Wind Raider, which was a LEGO-like $0.10 / brick.

    Stores don't have it yet. The May 15 release date on Gamestop has been amended, and that might have been a placeholder date they selected.
    The user "Kevin_MCX" shared an in-progress build photo on the Megaconstrux site.

    The outer box contains a few inner boxes with sharp-looking art, and the bags do have numbers.

    This...damn it...looks like something I'm going to need to buy. I've never built a set from Mega Construx, and the Lego brand enthusiast in me has always been skeptical but...this will get me!

    Just need it to show up somewhere in Canada.

    I love the idea of this. It looks great everywhere...except where it needs to. That skull and those teeth look REEEAAALLL bad. It's like a over bushy mustache. Which would be fine, but it's teeth. $250.00 for something that would annoy me every time I looked at it is just too much. Good luck to everyone looking to get one.
