    Colour variations for Castle Grayskull® Diorama & Stands

    Who is hoping for colour variations and what colours would you like?
    Here is what I hope for. Since I don't see these coming anytime soon I will probably do some repainting myself.

    These would be my choices:

    He-man Green
    Skeletor Purple
    Hordak Red
    Snakemen Black
    Pop White or perhaps Violet, Pink???
    NA Blue??? Or should there be differentiation in heroes and mutants?

    Nah, just stick with one color pattern/ design for the display stands.

    I don't know about color variations of the stands we're getting (that said, I would likely get some), but I wouldn't mind other stands as well. I need to figure out how many sets I'll be ordering next month...
    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. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Hopefully they'll give us different sculpts for Grayskull bases so we can get a BAF Grayskull (Well, probably it's just me but i can dream, can't i?)

    That's what I meant, it would need to be different sculpts!

    So what should they look like then?
    I mean, a brick is a brick. A different pattern?
    Rocky for the fright zone? Tech floor for NA?
    Suggestions?

    I'd like to see some black or dark purple rocks with lava running through the cracks for a Snake Mountain themed stand.

    This could work as a generic "villian" stand. I'm not sure if we really need different stands for factions such as the Horde and Snakemen. If they made a bunch of different designs I'd buy them, but I think just Grayskull and Snake Mountain would work fine.

    No bricks, just different sculpted floors.

    Purple rocks for Snake Mountain
    Brownish rocks for Fright Zone
    Snakeskin floor for Snake Men
    Crystal Castle floor for POP
    Techno floor for NA

    YES ! Skeletor's evil warriors stands should be purple with bright orange lava between the stones (for a Snake Mountain effect) !

    That would look so cool, in my opinion...


    And for the Horde, rocky brown or black, with sculpted vines and a red horde bat !

    For the Snakemen, a dark green, scaly stand with neon green between the scales, and with the Snakemen logo in the middle !

    For POP, I could see something really different, golden with gems, for a Crystal Castle effect !

    For NA evil mutants, a purple and gray asteroid stand, reminiscent of the Nordor base.

    For NA galactic guardians, a white and blue "space opera" stand reminiscent of Starship Eternia.

    When are we getting those stands? I haven't read of the release date, and a pic of Adora standing on one is the first I've seen of them. Am I out of the loop?

    I thought I read somewhere that figures were eventually going to start coming packaged with a stand, but I can't seem to find where I read that.

    Does anyone know if that's true / when that's supposed to start?

    Yes. I hope that they would issue different stands.

    -Snake mountain floor with purple black rock with lava cracks.

    -Horde stands would have metal looking floor similar to the 4hm neca motu 200x stand design.

    -Snakemen would have a jungle floor or a re-paint of grayskull floor preferably a light brown rock color.

    I would be all for this idea as long as Matty would make the appropriate amount of stands to sell or at least offer them for sale once every 2 months.

    I like it but would prefer a gold Crystal Castle over pink as I prefered that version and would interest male collectors more. Though, I dunno if Mattel would do gold version due its origins in Filmation.

    I like it, sign me up. Also, a re-release of the Grayskull stands too. Also, if possible, on the next ones, use standard pegs and not the kind they use now.

    Good point!
    Making Grayskull, Fright Zone, Viper Tower and Snake Mountain stand sculptures would be great...but in case there is no planning for making 'em, I think repainting the current Grayskull stands would be cool so that every color goes with each of the Masters according to their side.

    I don't want re-colored Castle Grayskull stands. I need new tooling for potential Snake Mountain, Fright Zone, or Whispering Woods/Crystal Castle stands.

    Snake Mountain - dark blue/black stalagmites like outside of Filmation Snake Mountain

    Fright Zone - dark black with red highlights techno floor

    Crystal Castle stands - iridescent pink crystal shards would be cool

    Anything of those sorts would be great. Any MOTU environment is cool to me for stands/dioramas. One of my favorite things about MOTU and POP are the scenery, backgrounds, and locations.
