    Castle Grayskull at C2E2

    Ok, I saw the post by board member demiscy, and I looked at that photo and I was amazed of how cool would a castle Grayskull will be in this line. But questions began filling up my head...

    1. Do we need CG to be a playset like the 80's one?
    2. Do we need it to be green?
    3. Do we need it to come with lots of pieces and parts?

    After thinking about it... Even I was shocked over my own thoughts.

    No, I don't need the CG to be a Playset, nor it to be green....And not even the parts and stuff.

    Why? Simple, this is an ADULT COLLECTOR line. I for sure won't be playing with my MOTUC figs. Yes I will display them and change them from time to time.... But no, I will not play with them. At 33 years old I don't see me doing that. My vintage Castle Grayskull is displayed CLOSED... To show the awesomeness of a Skull faced castle!!!

    Also, as an adult collector I understand that my current MOTUC figures looks more adult themed than the vintage ones. And for that reason I want a castle Grayskull that looks the part for those figures.

    As you can see in the pictures, that castle does not open, does not have loose parts, it's not a playset...It is a display device for your figures.... With awesome Classic/Vintage/Wheathered colors and shades, it gives the figures a vibe of and ancient temple/castle of power and magic.

    So the main question here is...Would fans accept a display CG instead of a playset CG....

    I, as a 33 yr old Collector, vote for the display castle...in style with the one displayed there! Obviously, it needs to be a bit more scaled to the current height of the MOTUC figures.

    I would prefer a playset, but would be happy with a display, on the condition that it looks NOTHING like the one from C2E2. That is NOT the Castle Grayskull that I want. It has to look like the original playset.

    I totally agree, would you imagine a classic version with those paint apps and details....Just as a display.... That would be crazy awesome!

    While My main use will be Display, the advantage of a Playset is that I can do a Display about events "inside the Castle". Also a Playset would have to bring props and other stuff for "play value" that can be used as props for a Diorama.

    As long as it DOES NOT LOOK like the C2E2 Castle I'm OK with it being a playset or a Diorama Background!

    I wouldn't want it to look like the playset, which looks quite frankly horrible. The C2E2 one is fine, APART from the "baldness" of it - it needs the "crown".

    Really, there's only one Grayskull I want to see, if I'm honest:


    But if they can't do that, the original playset is NOT the way to go.

    I want a playset. The interior of Grayskull is just as important to me as the exterior. I want to be able to put my figures inside the Castle as well as the outside.

    But most important of all, I want it to be just like the rest of the Motuc line - and be the best Castle Grayskull toy ever made. No matter how well it's sculpted, a display piece/diarama will never surpass an actual playset.

    I want a playset version of what the 4H sculpted for Scareglow's reliquary.

    I'll be disappointed somewhat if it looks like the 200X castle, or at all like that display castle at C2E2... which is fine, for display, but I wouldn't want to spend money on that.

    I will accept nothing less than a playset Castle Grayskull because I want a playset Snak Mountain. This I command!

    I agree, but am a bit more evhement on it being a playset.

    It must look like the Vintage boxart in my book!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time.

    CURSES!!! we did too.



    they had one at SDCC 2009, but we were performing in the Masquerade that year as Skeletor and Evil-Lyn.
    so they would not allow us to reveal our costumes until the show.

    I dont want the CG displayed, but I do want one more in scale with the figures. I do want it to be a playset, although I dont intend to play with my figures, but, as others have stated, I do want the additional display options that a playset may offer.

    Whatever we get, I hope it looks NOTHING like the one from SDCC last year or from ToyFair/C2E2/Wondercon....or were they the same one? Either way, it/they looked TERRIBLE.


    I prefer a display Castle since I won't use a playset and thus don't want to spend the money it would cost.

    I don't care if a new CG isn't the same as the 80s one but I don't like that one on display. Maybe if it were bigger.

    I did vote for the display, but a playset that separates in two, for an inside (throne room/portal/orb,etc.) and outside (front of castle, NECA-like working door) view, thus two diorama options, would be sweet.

    Realistically, how much would a working (lights/sounds/accessories) playset in "classics" size cost?


    20 "easy" payments of $19.95?

    Perhaps a diorama of the front of Grayskull would be a less expensive option.

    I think i may have put in a wrong vote. I actually don't want a Castle Grayskull until they make Snake Mountain first!

    At this point right now (and i was all for the play-set not long ago, but space dictates LoL) i'd perhaps rather have a diorama piece instead of a play-set - although not what we've seen pictured. Since i don't play with figures, a display piece such as CG/SM would add a nice touch. It's not a definite decision though as i'd want to see what potentially these play-sets would look like.

    Guess i'd better start saving for the shipping costs now...

    Everything about my figures is for display purposes. I never show the inside of my toy CGs, It's the skull that is the money shot with the figures, so a display would more than make me happy, as long as it is to scale, meaning the Neca Door is the scale it is based on.

    Any playset they make will never live up display wise to individual dioramas. Skeletor, Hordak, Sorceress, Randor Throne rooms, Tri-klops / Duncan's Lab, Evil-Lyn / Marzo chambers, Snake Mountain / Horde Prison's Whispering Woods etc.

    A display set would be just fine by me, so long as the price reflected the fact it's just a display and not a functioning playset.

    You guys that don't want it to look like the playset just aren't thinking 4 horsemen classic-izing. I don't care if it is a display or a playset as long as it looks as bad-ass as Zombiehamma's castle grayskull that that lucky S.O.B Eamon got a hold of. Perfect use of old toy to MOTUC.

    take that castle grayskull extend the ridge on the crown so people can stand there and add the 200x balcony in the tower and itll be as close to perfect as id like.

    my true preference is for a bunch of modular rooms that can be swapped out so you can make your own interior depending if you prefer vintage, filmation, minicomics, original movie, or 200X
