UPDATE: Good news for international fans! Reports have been coming in that Matty has adjusted the shipping costs on international orders. They are about half the cost now, which most seem to report as being accurate. Thank goodness!
Original: The pre-order for the Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull playset have opened up on MattyCollector.com. You can Pre-Order it and read the full details of the playset here.
The final cost of the playset is $250.00 plus shipping/taxes. Matty will not charge you for the playset until it ships, which isn’t until December 2013. So I guess you’ve got a little over a year to actually save up for it, which is kind of nice.
Shipping costs are already looking really high on this one, though. For me, shipping and taxes to Illinois ran $54. Already, many International fans are reporting shipping prices as high as $200, which is incredibly steep. So be warned, this is not going to be a cheap purchase.
So here’s the question: will the shipping charges keep you from ordering? And also, do we think the high shipping costs will hurt the overall chances of the goal being met in order to actually produce the playset?
