I think if done, Castle Grayskull should not be broke up into pieces! Despite all the bickering people would do about not getting that piece from Matty. There would always be some complaining when you get two pieces and they don't connected properly! So just stick with selling it as a whole!
I would like to see Grayskull to look similar to the way it does on Scareglow's reliquary. But have it close up similar to how the 200X version did.

A true Castle Grayskull from my childhood works best for me. I would rather have it not be skinny and missing all its environment. I dont need it to open in half either. Tower tops and opening the door, using the bridge before would be plenty to place figures.
what i should have said is that I'd like to see CG in person at my local store and be able to purchase it there if i wanted to, rather than pay the outrageous online prices and shipping for something like that. Alot of times when I'm not sure whether to get a 'big' item, seeing it in the store (how big it is, looking at pics on the box, the features, etc.) can influence my decision on getting it or not. like the new Millenium Falcon...
IMO, things always look better in person than any pics on a website can ever depict. I guess i'm still old school. i like to see what I'm purchasing before purchasing it. unfortunately that's not an option with this toyline.

If we ever get a Castle Grayskull,this is the one I would want ,but maybe with some flashing lights and thunder sounds like the 200x one.
What would your ideal MOTUC Castle Grayskull be?
Indeed. That version is very, very good. I would want a version that combines the original & the MYP version. I know that's a rather vague answer.*shrug*
I'll edit this post when & if I can come up with a clearer image of it myself.
I'd like a Castle Grayskull that is very similar to this:
But with at least one side that could be hinged and pulled out to showcase an interior as well. I also don't care for the gun on my Castle Grayskull, but that's just me (I know it was on the vintage one too, but blah).

Size is the major problem here. I seriously believe the jawbridge alone should be the size of 2 classics figures tall. This would make it very expensive to buy and ship. I can't see it being done as much as i want it.

I would like my CG to be big enough to look right with the figures. I would want it to look like the vintage one externally and then have new features on the inside. I would love to see a "magical portal" somewhere in it and the bottom level could have the crystals from the 200X toon. I think an elevated throne for the Sorceress would be a nice touch too. And make it so that lots of figures could be standing on and around it.
I preffer a mix between Rudy Obrero's castle with some styles of the 200x one but not the front, I like to see that in Rudy's style
and I want to see a full castle grayscull not just two halves of it
I cannot believe I have never thought of having a complete, 4 wall (and roof) Castle Grayskull. This is a brilliant idea! Of course, it would have to be able to be opened up for play and display with all the interior features that have been raised in this thread.Originally posted by gucky:

Let's make it the biggest "Build a" thing in history. Every figure until 2016 gives you one small bit inside the pack...

4) With all the tooling dollars required for a new Castle Grayskull, would you be willing to try what Playmates did with their Star Trek line, and possibly include pieces of the Castle with future figures? This could be a fund way to build up a small display scene or Castle Grayskull diorama to display the figures with.
We’d rather just do the whole Castle to be honest. Maybe in a movie year…

Castle Grayskull would be just epically awesome. I would happily pay upwards of $150 for a good sized CG. The Star Wars BMF was well worth the extra money it cost, and I would be even happier to pay for a great looking CG.
I would prefer one done more in the classic style with plenty of depth and excellent sculpting. It should have props inside it like were shown in the cartoons (portals, sorceress throne room, maybe the cave of the elders, etc). And I agree...it needs to have a portal large enough for He-Man to ride Battle Cat through the portal. It needs to be 2+ feet tall to really capture CG sense of scale. Larger is better.
I don't see them making CG on the scale it would need to be in order to be accurate scale so they'll compromise like they've always done and bring it into something managable. I'd like to see a CG that looks like the vintage set but which has the updated look and features of the 200x version. I would like to see at least a third wall on it. And I would pay up to $200 bucks for one just fyi TG.
It's all about being polished when it counts!

Zombihama's Grayskull is about all I would ever want. I just need the front, with a working drawbridge.
I say that for a number of reasons:
1.) Space. I don't have the space, especially not come 2015-6 or so when we have a ridiculous amount of figures to display, to have a display piece that is extremely tall, fairly wide, AND extremely deep. It would just take up far too much space.
2.) I don't need an interior. With such an already large item on display, how would I ever have the space to open it up and use any interior detailing? Either I'd have to open it and have it on display with the figures inside the Castle, or I'd have to display just the front and the interior would be worthless to me.
An interior just doesn't serve a purpose for display purposes. Unless you buy two of them so you can have the front of Grayskull facing out, AND the interior exposed somewhere else in the display.
Plus, unless the Castle were three feet tall or more, you're not going to get a convincing interior anyway. It'll always seem too small and cramped inside. No thanks.
I'd rather have separate dio sets depicting various areas of Grayskull's interior. For instance, a Sorceress's Throne Room set. This would allow the 'interior' places to be better-scaled to the figures rather than having to try to fit them inside the Grayskull model itself.
Ultimately, this is how I'll be making my own display. I'm already planning to build it all myself. If Mattel comes out with a nice Grayskull front, I'll be all over it. But if they make an actual playset/model, it'll either be too big to be useful to me, or too small and unimpressive. In either case, I'd pass on it.
