Roast Gooble Dinner, the .org's podcast had B-Flynn and they squeezed some info out of him.
-Super7 is using a different factory for the playset.
It's not their usual factory, but it's not the one used by Mattel to make Castle Grayskull.
That is a bit of a wild card. It's a different factory, so the usual mistakes shouldn't happen. But at the same time, it's a different factory, so other mistakes could happen.
While there is a bit of uncertainty here, I'm leaning more towards a positive outlook.
-The swamp monster sticker from the original will be a 3D item. It may or may not get bendy wire tentacles.
They are giving me a Tentacle monster... it Better get bendy tentacles...
-There is a Minimum of orders needed for this to go through. If this doesn't go through, we'll be refunded.
Seems reasonable enough. Hopefully it'll happen. I'm very likely to take the plunge.
-The net may or may not happen...
While this was a key feature from the vintage playset, getting a net should be easier... if they don't add it. Going to a craft store and probably for like $3-5 you could get a Yard of netting.
-The playset would ship directly from the factory in China.
This is the only thing that worries me. I'm not a fan of ordering straight from China.
That's pretty much it. Hopefully by Wednesday, they'll have all the answers to entice us to get this.
