Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull
Fair warning: Mattel’s incredible Castle Grayskull playset won’t actually be available until fall 2013. But you can only pre-order it between now and January 4th, and this thing is so massive we doubt anyone would be disappointed to find an “I.O.U. one Grayskull” note in their stocking. It’s scaled to the new 6-inch He-Man line, has three floors, and so many features — you can see how it dwarves the original ‘80s Grayskull playset here. It’s $250, but at least you won’t be charged until it actually ships.
