    I had to go to the store and show the amazon price and then they applied the 25% off. 125 total.

    Target has marked the castle down to 154.99. If you have a target red card they are offering an extra 25% off one toy purchase until dec 7th and 5% off one transaction until dec 14th. All this on top of the 5% for the red card. Pretty good deal.

    I wasn’t able to get the 25 but I ordered it.

    That is weird. Not sure why I had it then. Sorry for the misinformation. Glad you for it though.

    Target now has 25 off 100 dollars or more. If you call them they might be able to adjust the price so you don’t have to buy it and return the other. Almost the same price with the 25% off.

    Grabbed scare glow and stratos from megalopolis.toys Tuesday they had the castle for 75 but sold out in seconds. Heard target and amazon got it for 130 for castle. Downfall of megalopolis is there's no option for shipping other than 2 day so it cost 15 but will be here tomorrow or today I forget. But got em for 5.99. So. Now bring on the first motu wave to America. Honeslty thought I was gonna miss out on these versions of scare glow and stratos. Glad they are finally out the way after like 8 months of waiting.

    I'd register at megalopolis and keep watch on the site in case they get more in. Sucks the castle sold out in seconds that was a steal. But it would be smart to register and keep an eye onntheir site for more figures. https://megalopolis.toys/account/reg...=2802725978205

    Target price matches and walmart and amazon have it up for 129.99. Stack the 25 off 100 it brings it down to 104.99. 5% off with red card will bring it down more. Not 75 dollars good but with shipping that will be about even.

    Just scored Battle Bones for $60 shipped. Not too bad I suppose.

    Looks like I'm going to be going to the store. That's another $25 off that I can get!

    My scare glow and stratos arrived. Man the four horsemen weren't lying when I think it was Eric who said he was blown away how megalopolis packed their packages. Excellent job and the cards are nice and crisp. Being forced to pay 2 day shipping blows but that's probably cause most collectors need it now.

    On a group someone that was able to get a castle from megalopolis said the shipping was 15. The night before the sale stsrted I checked the shipping price in a mock up, they gave you free option or 15. I figured the free option would change but was curious on the price of shipping. So them that got it from there got it for 90. That's excellent and here months ago I was happy with the price I paid for it haha. Oh well..

    This megalopolis came in my newsfeed awhile back but I never heard of em so I ignored them and didn't take them serious. Then awhile later the four horseman partnered with them to sell and handle their line and I was like that's that place I seen in my fb feed awhile back. After that I could never remember how to spell the name and kept putting in megatropolis.com lol. I wanted to check them out cause now I knew they were legit with the four horsemen back them up and working together. Then in a group the other day someone posted a pic of their sale on the castle. In the pic showed a donatello and I was like wait, that's from that scarce glow wave. So seen the address and went there real fast, sure enough there they were for 5.99. So I hopped on it and then seen the shipping and only one option and for 2 days. I almost backed out. But then I was like man I got burned last time when these were originally showing up. So I paid it. Didn't understand the shipping at that point. I should've added more to balance out the shipping.

    Also, I love that they have a point system. I think it's a point for every dollar spent. After you spend so much there you can buy toys with them or put it towards a bill. I think 20 points equates to a dollar. I dig that alot. Love bbts Pol and low shipping, but a point system really makes things super cool if you biy a lot of toys. Noticed all their prices seem to be retail and not bumped up. Another plus. I foresee me and megalopolis.toys having a great relationship in the future. I only collect a few lines and so far these guys sell them. If they put up the s7 conan and other things then it makes sense to go with them. Just not sure how they work preorders if they charge now or later. Depending on that time of my life I need to think get hit early or get hit later cause I can't afford to be hit now.

    Like normally I stick with s7. But now that bbts does the same exact pricing, and don't charge now and low shipping, I need to start going there with everything. And I go to dorkside for sw bs. Low shipping, retail price, can order individually within a wave. Great site. But waiting on my wedge and luke to ship. They said Nov and it's now almost my birthday and then xmas. But it's cool. I dealt with him before and had great dealings so. And I'm never in a hurry to get my things. All I care about is being locked in to a retail price and they can ship whenever lol. But if megalopolis carries the sw bs and all s7 ultimates, and retail price, it clearly makes sense for me to shop there and gain points for the future.

    You have to be careful with BBTS. They are my store of choice but they don't always have the exclusives. Like Hasbro Pulse made them pull certain products.

    - - - Updated - - -

    So I just got off the phone with Target. The customer service rep told me "We will not price match until after christmas, I think...". WHAT?!

    Needless to say, I'll be speaking with a manager and if they don't give me the discount I'll return BOTH and order from Amazon Prime.

    That's just ridiculous.

Any suggestions that you have for keeping the bridge up without having pieces snap off is appreciated! Thanks.

    I affixed a figure (He-Man) by at least one of his feet to the "tongue" of the jawbridge. That served to give enough counter-weight pulling the door inward. Then you have a dramatic/surprise reveal when Skeletor uses the power sword to open the door.

    The castle needed a nose job in my opinion, so I found another way to frame the nasal cavity. I also had some InstaMorph sitting around and made a quick-n-ugly Spirit to go with the Castle. Y'know, a la "King of Castle Grayskull" and such.

    You'll want to use that part in Step 462. The purpose of it is to keep the elevator car flush against its rail as you slide it up and down. In the instructions, it's understandable that the part doesn't look spring-like and is thus less recognizable -- they have drawn it with the spring in coiled position (the two red ends pushed close together), but that's the part you use at that step.
