The day is finally here, the day you can start pre-ordering the recently announced Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull! Mattel first announced word of this last month at the annual He-Man conevention, Power-Con. They announced they would be taking pre-orders for the updated classic playset, but would only be producing it if they get enough orders. Priced at $250 plus shipping it certainly isn’t something everyone will jump in line to get, but many fans have been asking for this and here is your chance to put your money where your mouth is. Mattel will not be charging you for the playset until it ships next December (though you may see a charge appear now, but will drop off). So head on over to MattyCollector.com and place your pre-order soon as possible. The deadline is November 10th, 2012, but if initial pre-orders are met, it will remain open until January 3rd, 2013. The estimated shipping date for Castle Grayskull is early December 2013. (Source: Mattel)
Standing solitary in the desolate lands of Eternia®, the legendary Castle Grayskull® offers sanctuary for He-Man® and those who stand for all that is good. An essential component in the original Masters of the Universe® toy line, this long-awaited icon is finally available for pre-order. Whether you’re a dedicated fan of the original series or new to the Classics line, no collection will truly be complete without Castle Grayskull®!
Our all-new Castle Grayskull® playset is slated for a late 2013 release. Because it’s still in its very earliest stage, the final design is subject (and likely) to change. Why are we offering it for pre-order now and asking you to make a commitment when the design hasn’t been finalized? Because the production cycle for an item like this takes over a year and is extremely costly. If we don’t reach the minimum pre-order goal by November 10th, we can’t go forward.
