More On The Masters Of The Universe Origins Castle Grayskull

by Jay Cochran
September 17, 2020
Earlier this week we got our first indication that Mattel was planning on releasing a Masters of the Universe Origins Castle Grayskull playset. This was thanks to a listing that showed up on a Florida based distributor website that had it listed with a November release date. At that time I found the listing strange, mainly because we had been previously told by Mattel that Walmart would be the only place to carry Masters of the Universe Origins this year.

Shortly after that listing was reported, a very low res image surfaced online that was said to show the interior of the new playset.



I still haven't been able to confirm the legitimacy of this image from any sources I know to be reliable, but for the sake of argument I am going to say it is legit.

Since the other day, we have since gotten indications of the set showing up in the Target store computers. I also did some checking with few of those sources I find reliable. They have confirmed for me that in fact there is a Origins Grayskull playset coming from Mattel. I am told the price will range from $75-$80, and it should be available anywhere that chooses to carry it. In other words it's not going to be a store exclusive.

As for when it will be released, that still seems up in the air. I've heard anywhere from November to late December or early January. My guess large retail outlets like Target and maybe Amazon will get it before the smaller etailers.

If the image above is legit and final, I would say Mattel has taken their original Castle Grayskull playset (not to be confused with the more modern and larger Classics one) and made some slight alterations to it. It's also still unclear if the Sorceress figure seen in the image will be included, but my guess is that it will since the other vehicles we have seen for this line have included figures.

I don't know when Mattel is going to get around to officially announcing this thing, but I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't show up someplace like Amazon before to long. As we reported earlier this morning, Amazon is already taking pre-orders for Origins figures and listing them with a November 15th release date. Since this morning they added Beast Man and there is a place holder for Trap Jaw as well. Check out links to the figures currently listed on Amazon below.

Man-At-Arms

Evil-Lynn

Teela

Scare-Glow

Man-E-Faces

Orko - Is being sold by the Amazon Global Store right now

Beast Man

Trap Jaw - Currently listed as unavailable but will want to keep an eye on

I saw the entire Hordak wave except Hordak at Target the other week. Got Tri-Klops and Strastos but held off on Ninjor for now. Mostly all I see in the wild though are He-Man and Skeletor figures clogging the pegs.

Just found the whole wave at my local Target today & picked them up for my buddy. There was one of each, except Tri-Klops which had 3, I think.

Yeah when I watch American Toy Hunters, almost every store is just clogged with Skeletor and He-Man, here in Canada people are cryin they can't find He-Man or Skeletor, all we have is Battlecat and Adam + Sky Sled, they need to get this distribution down, I know a ton of collectors that don't even want to start on this line because of the lack of essential characters being released here in Canada. I love this line myself it just takes a bit of work to find everything, not sweating it too hard that I have not gotten the Hordak wave yet it's still pretty new, I'm only a bit mad at myself for passing on the one Castle Grayskull, I thought I'd see them again.

yes, Target, just like Walmart and Amazon doesn't really care about collectibles when it comes to shipping, at least in my experience, boxes are usually too small or too big with not enough padding

Oh I didn't knew that...  Thanks for letting me know man...????

I picked up the entire Tri-Klops/Hordak wave at  Target last week and also got deluxe Ram Man and Battle Armor Skeletor the past couple of days from BBTS. I've been able to find everyone of the basic figures at either WM or Target with the exception of Scare Glow (which I have preordered at BBTS). I managed to upgrade my Man at Arms and Trap Jaw when I found them at two separate WM a couple weeks ago. The Tri-Klops wave is at at least 3 Targets in my area, so it's starting to saturate a bit after it being dry there for a while. The Roboto wave and Battle Armor He-Man was showing up at those same Targets there for a while before that dry spell hit. Hopefully, future waves will continue to be easy to semi-easy to find from here on out. Got my Land Shark and the plastic is a bit rough, so I'm on the lookout to upgrade it. My Panthor arrived destroyed from Target but a friend has 2 or 3 incoming and he'll trade me for an upopened one that doesn't look like an accordion. He'll use mine as his open piece. I don't know how he finds the room to have an open one and MISB for literally everything and still has an unopened Snake Mountain and Unicron just sitting there.

Nice, but it means nothing when I haven't been able to see the early waves at any of the stores in my town yet.

Lord_Scareglow - 2021-04-10 @ 6:32 pm

Well hey I am still looking for the regular Hordak, guess this just doubled my chances of finding a Hordak, I'll take either one.

Shown below is our first look at the Masters Of The Universe Origins Deluxe Buzz Saw Hordak figure coming from Mattel. Like the original figure, this one has saw blades that will pop out of the figures chest. You can pre-order this figure from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com

Looks good.??? I will add it to my cart but check first if I didn't pre ordered already...?
