We just spent a toon of money in the castle, support this line, and where denied of the castle's dungeons floor when this could make part of the sculpt of the castle... For what?? For making it a battery cover for imaginex?!
You know this sucks right?
Please tell us that we'll have it for our made of gold castles
Imaginext incorporating an Easter Egg to the vintge Castle Grayskull in their tower dungeon playset has zero to do with or is in any way related to the MOTUC castle.
We unfortunately could not include a sculpted painted dungeon door on our MOTUC Castle due to cost. The incredible amount of deco hits alone that a sculpted painted dungeon door would need was about the cost of a standard figure. We did not want to increase the cost of the castle 25.00 for a detail that could be done as a sticker and was never expressly called out as a sculpted figure during the presale in the written description of what was included. Additionally, after sculpting it was clear now the dungeon would not be seen as clearly as the Horsemen designed the dungeon door as an element inside a closed cell.
And we did not want to leave any part of the castle unpainted and derail the high quality we were going for. So any unpainted but sculpted dungeon was also not an option. To keep the castle at the lowest possible price, the dungeon was done as a sticker, just as it was on the vintage toy.
It doesn't mean doing a dungeon door one day (like in a "furniture" pack like Barbie or MH does) is out of the question, but their are no plans to announce right now.
The FP toy has a cool Easter Egg. This is in no way a slight to fans or in anyway related to the Classics Castle from a cost or logositc POV. All just part of toys being fun!
