Is anyone else having preauthorising problems with DigitalRiver. Be curious to know if anyone who used an Amex had their order cancelled, or whether its just limited to Amex orders?

I'm half tempted to buy a backup during Early Access, so if there were anyone else wanting to order let me know. I just don't want to be left holding a spar though. Do you think they'll be peg warmers?

It came out a lot better than expected given some of the scary moments of Mattel cost cutting after pre-order sales. Lucky that the 4H got clever and compensated by making the best out of the limitations and now looks really good. However it is by far not $400+ worth...

Anyone know how much the 2003 Castle Grayskull goes for? I've seen MISB ones on Amazon for $239.00 and loose ones with minor damage from $140.00 on ebay. Just I have a MISB one I'm thinking of selling for a bit of extra christmas money.

Apparently I also paid for express

I asked for the cheapest option and it's traveled half way around the world in a few days.....I'm hoping it will arrive pre Xmas day ;)

I received this on the day I was going to fly to Japan (2+ weeks ago) and got a huge shock. This friggin thing is SO big. I was imagining it to be maybe somewhere the size of the vintage set (and box), but this is like 4 times bigger.

I'd probably be forced to sell this as I just have no space.....

I'm waiting to when I build my new place and have a dedicated hobby/toy room

It's doesn't help that Santa bought the tmnt secrete sewer play set and metroplex for my boy this year.....we have no space whatsoever

sadly, I have sold my Castle already. I simply cannot find a space for it and I will not sacrifice selling TFs to make space for it... *sad*

Just saw some pics online, it got me curious. Im content in owning the 2002 version , but the way it looked that it's got the drawbridge details and moat from the cartoons, looks awesome, Im also seeing some prototype Snake mountain (grey plastic) next to it - on Fwoosh (not sure if that's the spelling) ... makes me wanna get this as well, but I don't have the space anymore, from what I've been reading this is not something you can put on one side, it's a real space taker....:(:(... and Im about to buy the TMNT Sewer set up as well, sigh.... I need a fourth room :o:o

the castle definitely eats up lots of space. It's not just the size, but also the volume of space it requires.

My wife looked at it when it arrived and said....... "that has to go".

hahaha, so Edith puts her foot down ei? I guess when it's like an entire table then living space would get topsy-turvy... I wonder though if I can afford it in the first place ;P

Sewer is huuuuugggggeeeee man

Be warned. Got this for my boy for Xmas and while it is truly fantastic and everything u want for a turtles lair, it's a space taker ;)

My CG is still in shipping box, I just don't have room until we build our next home

Hmmm I might have to rethink arrangements for the other collection room - for NON TF. I still would like to get that Sewer playset so a little re-arrangement will be in order..
