Looks like they officially unveiled Castle Grayskull this morning. Currently up for preorder at Wal-Mart (not sure if it is WM exclusive) for $75. Looks nearly identical to the vintage one honestly, but fits right in with the overall feel of this line. Ive always regretted not ordering the Classics Grayskull when it was available (although I still dont know where Id put it), so I went ahead and preordered this one. I still have my vintage one from when I was a kid, but it could use a few small repairs and TLC. It will be nice to get a shiny new one...plus, that packaging art is outstanding! (Although the typo that Im assuming should say fortress and not fortess is bothering me.)

I like that theyre releasing Grayskull in this line. Itd be incomplete without it. I have a vintage, 200x, and was lucky enough to get a Classics version on sale, so Im sure Ill get this one.

Id love to see a Slime Pit in this line, but Mattel will have to release the Horde first.

I received Man E Faces, Trap Jaw, and Orko today from an online order, looking forward to digging into those. My order for Scareglow unfortunately was cancelled (from both WalMart and Amazon), so that is kind of a bummer. Excited for the other three though!

I too had my Scare Glow canceled. And the rest of them as well, so now Im back to stalking the website. Glad you got them!   :)

Been awhile, is anyone here collecting or keeping up with the new age-Man line(s) and figures? To be honest, I always looked at my Classics collection and thought Im good on He-Man stuff for now. I missed out on a handful of characters, but otherwise felt good about it.

Then Origins hit and I checked those out, and loved them. Sometimes a headache to find, but affordable and to me sort of vintage He-Man 2.0. Those original figures dont hold up the best over time, and Origins is a chance to get a collection of those that are complete and more durable. Im pretty complete aside from Power Con stuff, and Ill probably continue.

Now we have Masterverse, which are pretty good for that $20 price point. I have what is released so far, but have only opened He-Man, Skeletor, and Battle Cat. Plus they showed a lot more cool stuff this weekend at Power Con. The question I ask myself (as Ive been selling off chunks of my collection to clear up space, etc), is do I really need three (or more) versions of these same characters? Outside of by absolute favorite characters or lines (specifically Spidey, Marvel, and parts of Star Wars), I try to limit the other franchises to one line, or one version. That is getting more and more difficult.
