MOTU Origins: Castle Grayskull

grayskull_08
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. Click below for a break-down of features and more photos. …continue reading MOTU Origins: Castle Grayskull

MOTU Origins Vehicles

panthor_11
I got flocking lucky. Through some perseverance and oh-so-many visits to the same stinkin’ Wal*Marts day after day, I have a fuzzy Panthor in my ranks. Hoo-ray! Is Panthor or Battle Cat really a vehicle or a character? I feel like officially it would be an Accessory, but that sounds like a purse. Maybe it’s a deluxe figure? Battle Cat had a speaking role in the cartoon. Is this another Turbo Teen debate waiting to happen? Let’s take a look at Battle Cat, Panthor, Land Shark and the Sky Sled.

Mattel Creations’ Crystal Skeletor

skeletor_06
I got a great surprise on my stoop this morning. The Mattel Creations‘ Skeletor I ordered on a whim back in October showed up! I have gotten into the Masters of the Universe Origins line and when I saw a link for the clear Skeletor pop up, I thought to myself, this isn’t my top dream figure, but if I don’t preorder it now, I’ll be disappointed when it comes out and everyone else has it and it’s too pricey to get. So I did, and now I have it, and I’m thrilled! Click below for more pics.

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!

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.

Restoring a Vintage 80s Castle Grayskull

grayskullint_01

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
