Castle Grayskull Watch: 3 Days Left to Order – The Four Horsemen Pitch
November 9, 2012

There are only 3 days left to pre-order the MOTUC  Castle Grayskull.   Today on the countdown the Four Horsemen speak out about this epic playset they are chomping at the bit to sculpt for fans:

PLEASE HELP BUILD CASTLE GRAYSKULL!!

One of the main things we’ve dreamed of doing since we very first pitched the idea of Masters of the Universe Classics to Mattel is to get the chance to re-create one of the most iconic playsets of all time, CASTLE GRAYSKULL! Well, the time has come, and we’ve got the chance to not only re-create Castle Grayskull so that it fits in with the level of detail and styling of Masters of the Universe Classics, but this thing’s gonna be HUUUUGE! Plus, we’re going to include all of the features and fun details of the original, and try squeeze in as much cool new stuff as we possibly can as well.Here’s where you all come in. Unfortunately, this incredible playset isn’t going to be cheap to purchase and we understand that. But the price Mattel’s going to be selling it for is the only way we’re going to be able to make it and get it into the hands of Masters of the Universe fans. Mattel has to have a certain amount of pre-orders before they can even have us start building the thing. If they don’t meet the minimum number of pre-orders required to set this process in motion by the deadline, then Castle Grayskull for the MotU Classics line will never happen. It’s as simple as that.So, obviously what we’re asking from you is, if you can afford it, get over to MattyCollector.com right now and pre-order this monstrosity of a playset before it’s too late. All of the details can be found at this link: http://www.mattycollector.com/DRHM/store?Action=DisplayProductDetailsPage&SiteID=matty&Locale=en_US&Env=BASE&productID=258165100

You can also watch Mattel’s own Scott (Toy Guru) Nietlich show off a foam-core mock up of the castle in a video he made recently by clicking here: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GpAEhXAmDs[/youtube]  Even though the mock up is very two dimensional, it’ll give you a pretty good idea of just how massive this thing will be when it’s finished!

We’re pretty darned excited about the possibility of making this beast of a toy and we’ll promise you right now that if we get to create Castle Grayskull for you, we’re going to put every ounce of heart, soul and creativity into it that we can to try to make it worth every hard earned penny that you’re going to be spending on it. We’ve already been going over the blueprints and planning our direction of attack so when (not if) Mattel gives us the green light we can dive right in. Now all we need is you. This time you truly DO have the power! Thanks in advance.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
