Grayskull. Interesting. That $200 price has me a bit worried though. It could be awesome or could turn out like the Helicarrier. $200 seems awfully "low" considering how big these figures are. But I'm hoping it'll be awesome.

I think it will end up more like a Facade similiar to the CNC HOJ from the YJ line-(- which they keep trumpeting)-- its nice for a display but not really a playset for your figures.

That's the price they are hoping for but they did say they weren't sure yet. It would be in the range of $200-250. It seems to be a fair price for what they are hoping to do.

See now I look on it as it really isn't going to use that much plastic if they follow the design of the original. After all it's just two sides, the plastic used on each side will be about 5mm thick, there's probably the same amount of plastic in one Castle Greyskull thats used in three Battle Cats. It will no doubt be cast in one colour and then just sprayed with highlights. Any platforms inside will be the same, cant imagine that they'll start putting in action features as they've avoided that with the figures.

I personally would rather have nothing inside and use the budget on making it as large as possible. I mean most people will be using it to display their figures in front of, rather than the playset the original was used as. So I don't see the point of putting too much effort into the inside when that could be spent on making the thing as big as practically possible for that price point.

Picked up the He-man/Battlecat bundle today for a buddy of mine. He recently saw my MOTUC collection and fell in love with the line. It should be a great surprise for him. :D

We'll see how this goes...

I picked up a vintage one for $20 at my LCS. That'll do just fine for me.

I just wonder how bad the customs charges are going to be to get this to the UK. I have to pay extra on my Sub figures each month, and on the JLU stuff (although thats not for much longer) but the charges on something that big and expenses are going to be ridiculous. If it could just be send from somewhere in Europe or even sent out from Mattels UK distribution center it would be way cheaper. I would be great if they shipped all the UK orders to their UK distribution center and then mailed them out, but I know they'd never be that helpful. :(

I have the 2002 one but the scale of this Matty one has my playset collector urge on fire.

I agree Frequency. My kids and I starte watching some New Adventure episodes on DVD recently. The NA He-Man figure looks nice. And can't wait to add Clamp Champ to my Heroic Masters shelf. Hope they get to Rio-Blast and Extendar.

That's cool of you Alcinde4 and something I like about you. I missed out on this thanks to it being a tight month financially. How much was it with shipping and tax, $40? Still, not a bad price for both figures given Battle Cats size. I need to go down south to one of the shops and see who they have in stock. I wish I could get a Fisto sword for my 200X figure. Although I have been eye balling his classic counterpart.
