Looking forward to seeing the eventual reveal, D.R.!

As for that moat thingy: it looks too cartoonish for my tastes. Might've gone for it when I was 10, but not when I'm within spitting distance of 40.

I ended up buying a moat print for the vintage castle, since it looks MORE appropriate with it... rather than the new castle. Bought it on the 19th and still waiting for it... for the money they should have sent it priority, but whatever. For me, part of the fun will be mounting it on a piece of poster board, and cutting it out. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like under my castle with my complete Waves 1-2 figures, vehicles, etc. standing around it. :)

As beauty is in the eye of the beholder, worth is in the bank account of the beholder. I think it's worth every red cent this thing cost, and every headache it caused. It's simply magnificent.

I'm used to having to resort to third parties to flesh things out, so the manhole cover and dungeon grate are right up my alley. The cover is in place, the grate is in the mail. The only true "mistakes" I see is are 1) the color/texture of the interior (It needs a matte finish) and 2) The exposed screw holes on the elevator stalks.

... and the floors are extremely flimsy. They shouldn't be flexing from the slightest pressure of my finger pushing down on them.

Yeah, I'll second the flimsy floor thing, Spock. While mine are not as bad as some people have said they are, they could still be sturdier.

Surely you're mistaken. You're talking about a $300 item from a "high end adult collector line".
