By the power of MOTU gods… I have the Grayskull! I don’t know how it happened, but my WalMart preorder from August last year actually arrived. It’s a reasonable upgrade from the 1980s Castle Grayskull, and worth getting it at retail price.

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.

Grayskull Restoration Project: Elevator Rail

For Christmas this past year I received a vintage 80s Castle Grayskull. This was one of the very top items from my childhood that all my other friends had and I did not. Apparently it was gained for $35 at a comic book shop on Black Friday (20% discount was in full effect).
I’ve decided to start restoring it the best I can, using non-traditional methods when appropriate. Follow along as I restore this Grayskull to its full glory. In this article, I 3D printed the elevator rail. …continue reading Grayskull Restoration Project: Elevator Rail
