MOTU Origins: He-Man & Skeletor

origins_11
By sheer luck, I HAVE THE POWER! It has taken a lot of patience and a lot of stops in random Wal*Marts, but I finally got my hands on a Masters of the Universe Origins He-Man and Skeletor. After watching seemingly hundreds of fellow collectors defy the odds and the scalpers and post pics of their own hauls, I finally had my day. I took a ton of photos, click below for more!

Glow in the Dark Aliens in slime

Glow in the dark Xenomorphs

I recently bought a display box of Diamond Select’s Glow-in-the-Dark Aliens on eBay. Each Xenomorph minifig comes blind packed in a plastic egg with glow in the dark slime. I couldn’t pass up the deal and I got a display box to boot! I was super psyched and couldn’t stop checking the online tracking. Once I got the set in my grubby little hands on the box, I started cracking open eggs, and I was heart broken.

Mega Construx Castle Grayskull

castle_18
With the current at-home situation, I got inspired to check out the Mega Construx Castle Grayskull. At 3500+ pieces it was a little daunting. The $250 price tag also made it prohibitive, but I managed to snag it for $85 on sale online. With all the pics I had seen online, and the fun I heard from others, I jumped at the chance. This thing is full of detail and play features. It was a ton of fun to put together, and now that it’s done, my son and I are having fun playing with it too. Check out the details, and a sweet time-lapse video of the build.

I received a vintage 1982 Castle Grayskull for Christmas. On the outside it looked like it was in great shape; but inside, most of the accessories were missing. I decided to do what I could to restore it to its former glory. Using a combination of 3D printing, eBay, and facebook trades, I just recently completed the restoration. Check it out! …continue reading Restoring a Vintage 80s Castle Grayskull
