Just to refresh your memory, the above bit of plastic wonderment is Castle Grayskullman from Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics Club line (which also features such fan favorites and obscurities as Rattlor, Procrustus, Netossa and King He-Man, amongst others).

Full details and info on what you can do about this after the jump.
On their Facebook page, the Four Horsemen break down the situation thusly:
