    Most of us older folks who watched Transformers G1 also loved us some He-Man too. I know I did, so I finally got around to tackling what might be the biggest paint job I've ever done. Mostly hand painted aside from a few base coat spray colors.
    Its not just a paint job though. I added a few things too. Can you tell what?

    Base playset was the 200X MOTU 2nd edition Grayskull. The 200X show and figures were great, and I'd like to think it brought some love for MOTU to younger generations as well as giving us old fans something cool.

    Hope ya like it!

    All I am going to say is WOW,WOW I LOVE IT. I surely hope we can get a castle like this from Mattel in Dec 13' cause that would be awesome. This is sooooooooo cool that I commend the person that painted this big time.

    Thanks a crap-ton guys!

    Things I did ya might not have noticed-
    Tinted skull eyes so they are near black when off and have an eerie dim glow in the middles when lit.
    Moss patches at the base (will soon add better moss creeping up the sides once I go buy the right stuff).
    Longer chains in dungeon to actually fit on figures (and actual chains too).
    Blood, piss, and sculpted turds (rat is eating a pile) on the dungeon floor. Claw marks and blood on walls.

    Very cool. Looks awesome. I love the 200X series. I didn't start collecting anything until after the first TF live action. It's a good thing I didn't start collecting with THIS series. :)

    Holy crap balls,bro!That is some EPIC work you've done there!I'm seriously impressed of your skills with this.No,I didn't notice the turds,and piss though.My eyes were averted else where.Lol!Yeah,I had some of those toys too when I was a kid.I was a lucky kid thinking back on it.I had a lot of Star Wars,G.I.Joe's,MOTU and Transformers.Most all of that stuff is gone.I sold off the last of my bulk collection in June which was my original Transformers collection....and 3 months later I discovered this website and the world of customs. -_- DOH!
