    I'm wondering about that too.

    You see, I'm not really interested in super cartoon-y figures (I hate looking at the Club Grayskull figures) so, I am hoping that revelations are somewhat stylized, like what we saw with the leaked Moss Man. More 200X style and less Filmation.

    Which as you said, it makes me wonder if only the first wave is a tie in like how G.I. Joe Classified was a tie in to the Operation Blackout game, and they have subsequently reissued wave 1 in military colors. What will they do after that? 200X updates? Filmation figures?

    That's how I feel about Filmation as well. Like the cartoon is pretty lighthearted and silly and I love it, but I just hate those super simple character designs in toy form. I'm really hoping they go down the rabbit hole with 200x, those designs were amazing. I'd especially love a Mekaneck and some of those characters that only got NECA statues, like Stinkor.

    Honestly, if that Moss Man is an indication of what Revelations is going to look like then it'll have a similar style to 200X. That would be fine by me since I'm hoping that Masteverse will finally give us figures in the 200X style with articulation instead of the "classicized" 200X designs we got in Classics. I also have no interest in anything Filmation outside of perhaps Filmation exclusive characters like Sea Hawk.

    I don’t collect Origins but I do collect Man-E-Faces. Ordered him from Amazon on Friday and he arrived today. I appreciate that the entire head swivels.

    I did not realize the head swivels in addition to the faces inside. That is a good plus!

    I saw on a FB Group that someone in Ontario, Canada found Castle Grayskull last night in Walmart.

    Considering it's not slated to hit until way later, I don't buy that for a dollar.

    I believe it. Toy releases are all over the place right now. I’ve had three things ship already this year that were scheduled for May and June. I actually just went in and cancelled a bunch of preorders because the unpredictable and early releases aren’t jiving with my budget planning.

    I passed on the 200X Castle Grayskull, Classics, Imaginext, etc. But this one is HIGHLY tempting. I want it. The price is good. I just don't know where I'll put it.

    Edit: Oops. I meant to say Mega Construx, not Imaginext.

    Castle Grayskull is very tempting. Never owned one. I am trying to cut down on large item buys due to room. But is the iconic playset in MOTU. Snake Mountain is a definite pass if that comes out.

    Same here, highly tempting just no room.

    If someone could post dimensions once they have it in hand, that would be awesome.

    I didn't see a receipt, but I also didn't check. I think there have been a couple other sightings of it though as well.

    It's the Little People Grayskull I want to see.

    There's a decent chance at an Imaginext one too.

    Imaginext could make a pretty cool Grayskull with how they include figure activated gimmicks.
