Brand New Castle Grayskull for MOTUC Line
 
Currently, fans of Masters of the Universe are pre-ordering to get a new Castle Grayskull set made. Mattel has announced the project, but they can only start making it next year if they meet their pre-order quota.

The new set has been designed and the blueprints have been released. Four Horsemen will sculpt and make the new playset if the pre-order quota is met. This new playset is designed to be in the style as the original though it will be much bigger and it will have sculpted and painted details instead of stickers and decals. It will also have three floors instead of two like the original and a working elevator.

If this interests any of you can check out the early blueprint images and size comparison videos here:

i hope it get made for the fans but much like the matty subs crap i can see this doing nothing but cause fans between the fans

Do you mean cause more friction between the fans? Or cause anger?

Well this isn't a subscription release. And they will only make it and charge you if they meet the order quota. And you only get charged when it ships which is late next year.

I mean the price is high but overall I think this is a good deal.

I think a Castle Greyskull would be sweet, and I'd like to have one on my shelves, but not for $250.

Understandable Spider-Jay420. It's a hefty price even for a new playset.

Essentially both my friend, I know we both post on the org though personally not as much as I used to, so you should remember the sub push earlier this year to "save teh line"

Well during that while a lot acted fine, there was a quite a few that acted like for a lack of a better word complete *******s

A bunch of promo banners were made claiming if you didn't buy a sub, you were a Matty hater, not a true fan or anti Mattel, really sad bullying to try and force people to get the sub

That and if people put forth arguments that they didn't want a sub, couldn't afford it etc, where met with crys of get a better job or claims that if you don't have a sub you shouldn't be allowed on the org. Stupid stuff like that

Both side do have points, I mean its obvious Mattel is a business and needs numbers to produce a product, but the number of **** ups and dodgy practises are completely astounding, yet the fans are told you should be grateful and shut the hell up

I mean i love this line and have said in the past on the org many many times, i dont get everything simply because i don't have the space or the money, but What I mean is that with all current in fighting between the MOTU fandom( hell people were calling for protests and physical showdowns at powercon) if gravy skull doesn't meet it's quote I can see all hell breaking loose, with blame, arguing and the usual of Matty threading to cancel the line.

I don't think that's happening here right now.

I think this works well since it's not a sub item and only the people who really want it will get it. But they still have to get enough orders to meet the demand.

I think the sub model was very flawed for the line. I only did the sub once and didn't re-up this time around. I do want a Castle Grayskull though.

i agree mate, i've never had the sub, and i know there is no problems at the moment. but i've started to see facebook posts about how fans have to, and should do anything necessary to get the buy the castle.

i want to support this line and i really hope it doesnt end with fans at each others throats the org is bad enough with that now let alone if the classics get cancelled

Fans are just passionate about this series. I mean when this line goes away that could be it for MOTU for the forseeable future. Movie has been stalling for years and gone through multiple studios and rewrites.

It would certainly be better than the one I had as a kid.

Bullets, its going to be a lot bigger. It will have three stories :D .

Re: Brand New Castle Grayskull for MOTUC Line
 
I wonder how this will compare to the 2002 version. I'm guessing that version is in between the original and this one.

Re: Brand New Castle Grayskull for MOTUC Line
 
without pre-order? ehh...

TheVileOne 10-29-2012 02:17 AM

Re: Brand New Castle Grayskull for MOTUC Line
 
Hypestyle, it's all pre-orders, but this is separate from the yearly subscription deal.

But the only way they will produce it is if they hit their pre-order quota.

Thor The Mighty, this won't have lights and sounds like the 2002 Castle Grayskull. This will basically be a larger recreation of the original Castle Grayskull except it will have an extra floor at the top and 3D/sculpted details instead of stickers and decals. So it will be closer to the original but like twice the size.

Just FYI, if you pre-order the new Castle Grayskull before November 12, Mattel will send you a free Masters of the Universe cross sell poster.

And this is why a U.S.S. Flagg for the G.I.Joe could never be made, it'll cost the buyer an arm and a leg.

Re: Brand New Castle Grayskull for MOTUC Line
 
Well you'd have a year to save up, start a Castle Grayskull jar ;) .

I mean in their defense, this is going to be huge and much larger than the original.

Out of our hands now. If the project is approved, than you will still have the chance to order it through January.

Good news everybody:

So here is the deal. If you are still interested in this item, you still have until January 2013 if you would like to still get one.

On the contrary, it did get made back in 1985 & it was massive.
