It might be Halloween, but that doesn't mean ghouls and ghosts are getting all the attention in the toy world. In fact, Mattel's announcement of a new Castle Grayskull has taken the industry by storm and grabbed collectors by the wallets. The original Castle Grayskull is one of the most recognizable monuments to a classic era of toy lines, and collectors are already clamoring for this updated version.
The hulking new $250 playset is unlike anything the action figure hobby has ever seen. Not only will it fit the modern scale of today's Masters of the Universe Classics line, but it will include loads of action features and an all new sculpt to catch the eyes. Castle Grayskull will only be available for purchase online, and require a successful preorder drive before it's put into production. In other words, fans have to support Castle Grayskull for it to support their figures.
So the Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull is officially named October's Cool Thing, because it might just be the coolest playset the industry has ever seen. Find more information and preorder the toy on MattyCollector.com.
