Mattel today announced the following update about the upcoming Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull playset in regards to the packaging for it:
GREAT news... we confirmed the ginormous 2013 Castle Grayskull would be packed in a closed box with all new art by Rudy Obrero, the designer for the original packaging! (Rudy also did the box art for Wind Raider and Granymyr.)
Mattel will only go forward with production of this item if they meet their MINIMUM number of required orders by NOVEMBER 12, 2012 11:59 p.m. PT.
The price for this item will be $250 + Shipping and Handling. If you place a pre-order, you are committed to the purchase and will be billed when the item ships. That means you WON'T be billed now. The playset is not slated to see actual release until 12/11/2013, which is when you will be billed. When you place your order, the card you used will be “pre-authorized” for a zero dollar amount. This pre-authorization simply verifies that the card is valid. Again you will NOT be charged until the item ships, at which time you’ll be billed for the product, shipping costs, and any taxes/fees. So our recommendation is that if you pre-order now, start saving now.
