    In the states there are forms on site where you can complain about this stuff. You can also give him a poor rating for the feedback if you haven't already. I got mine from GameStop during that sale window, mine had the brown mailer and it was in another box with bubble wrap on top of that.

    Separately, I would go over every bag and box and make sure they didn't send you an incomplete set. There is a parts list in the back of the instructions that should help. Be sure you didn't get someone's leftovers they used for parts scavenging.

    From a private, 3rd party seller? CG has a brown distribution box that snuggly fits the gorgeous retail box inside. Yours shoulda been shipped in this from any reasonable seller. It's how mine came from Game Stop
    from amazon llc, I don't think thats a private seller, and no brown mailer box

    Thanks mate, I have opened it up and none of the 4 boxes inside appear to have been opened so should all be in there

    I used the web form as well...no response yet but it's only been a couple of days. The only part # I could use was for the whole figure, not just a hand, so I wasn't sure how they would...handle () that.

    But I will definitely contact them further if nothing comes of it (in a reasonable amount of time).

    Any progress on your figure replacement? Or can they do just the hand? Any contact from Mattel/MCX at all?

    They sent a survey asking about my experience with their service...but that's it...

    I've been really busy and kind of forgot, otherwise I would have tried calling and speaking with someone. We'll see! I tend to be (overly) patient with things like this...but I'll probably try and speak to someone next week.

    I saw a couple here in TN. We are near a Huge distribution hub so that may be why.

    I LOVE this set. I made a few cosmetic changes so that the teeth don't swing out sideways etc and lay more natural.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I’ve been planning / designing a platform-diarama to display my CG. I’m going to embed some LEGO blocks in the surrounding platform. I’m going to be fiberglassing the whole thing and hand airbrushing it. What I can’t decide on is, should I design it for CG to be open or closed? I may try to design it to be displayed either way.

    Thoughts?

    It probably is best if you can display it open, closed, and with the inside facing out so you can see the different floors. Maybe a "lazy Susan" under your display platform could give you some more options?

    Has anyone tried contacting Wal-Mart through some form of social media?

    We aren't getting much from Mattel/MCX and Wal-Mart is the other side of the equation. I am glad Pixal Dan will be trying to get a statement from Mattel at Power-Con. Hope he can clear up this issue.

    I forgot to call for an update but... my replacement He-Man arrived! Just got my mail and was confused about what it was until I saw the label.

    So... I'm impressed. It took a little while but they sent out a whole new figure... with both hands and everything!

    That's awesome news. I heard they stood behind their products, and it's good to see proof of that!

    Really??

    Well, damn! Hopefully there will be a restock for you at some point. I would add it to my cart on Amazon (from whatever third-party seller), "save it for later" and then keep checking to see if it comes back.

    Amazon Warehouse Deals has an extra 20% off the already low prices on some "used-very good" and "used-like new" condition Mega Construx Castle Grayskull sets:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-list...condition=used

    It brings the prices down under $150 before tax. Better get them quick because there might only be a handful of these available.

    Amazon and walmart have it listed as 166.99. If you have the target 25% off one toy item it applies to the Castle. You just have to get it price matched to the 166 get the 25% off and 5% off with the red card which brings it to 118 or so before taxes. Had to buy it at this price.
