    Congrats Daniel! I can't describe how happy I am for you!
    It is totally awesome that a fellow ORGer took home the ultimate prize.

    Your figure is really cool and I hope you have a nice thick skin to shrug off all the people who are just jealous they didn't win!

    Do we know who else won? Since I wasn't contacted I guess it wasn't me.

    The blond hair reminds me of Tytus, who built the castle.

    Congrats Daniel! I could see the Sorceress using her magic to create these guys out of parts of Castle Grayskull. I love the swords and shield from the original Castle Grayskull as weapons, I always wanted those!

    I am sad that not a SINGLE figure in the 30th Anniversary line is a female (Terry Higuchi's was confirmed male and a villain a LONG time ago), so I find it very disappointing on Mattel's part for not making sure the 30th line exhibited the same diversity the MOTU line as a whole has FOR 30 years. That's a criticism of the 30th line as a whole, not the CAC winner, who I am very happy for.

    I have to be totally honest: when I FIRST saw the picture of the entry, I was shocked because I was hoping for something truly original like a werewolf or some freaky creature thing that is unlike anything we have in the line so far. I took a little while to post because I wanted it to sink in a bit and make sure I wasn't wearing my jealousy hat!

    The only think I would change on this figure would be the head. It reminds me of Hulk Hogan...a LOT for some reason.

    Poltergrayskull kind of fits with the vintage names don't you think? But he could also be mistaken for being an undead chicken man.
    I changed my mind I'll call him The Castle Grayskull Wraith, I don't know how to thank you!

    Congrats to the winner, and that is one interesting design idea. To me it is 100% nostalgia and I would buy one.

    I'm sure it's my petty jealousy that is making me think that Daniel is in on Matty's cruel joke...

    Congrats, Dan!

    Cool look - but I dont get how it fits the cannon - he better be EVIL!! Here's an idea - Skeletor raised a zombie corpse from the grounds of Castle Grayskull and created the evil Castle Grayskull Man - it would make a good army builder... If he's good - then I am BLAH about it. The spirit of Grayskull shouldn’t be able to act like Jesus Christ (God Incarnate) because if it were that easy he would be the most powerful man in the universe and we would have no need for He-Man... My 2 cents!!

    I like this figure a lot, and while the name is very weird it also works, somehow...I can easily see the figure (and name) having been in the vintage line.

    I think it is pretty funny. I don't like the blonde hair, it looks weird and out of place. Everything else looks pretty cool in a fun sort of way. I really love the shield. Congratulations to Daniel Benedict, he must be on cloud 9 right now.

    Congratulations Daniel (masque)!! What a unique and cool concept you created for MOTU. I really like how this idea of a living golem like character is made out of Castle Grayskull's stone walls. If Skeletor can create monsters out of rocks and lava, the Sorceress can surely create some out of the castle. I'm interested in his bio. Will he be an army builder type character or yet another Eternian defender of the Power sword like Vikor and Oo-Lar? He does look like he may have been fused with CG as well via magic<< which I prefer to think him as. I would like his hair a bit darkened though, other than that, such a great character!

    I really like the figure, it's a solid and safe choice, especially for the 30th. I think he'll make a good enforcer for Castle Grayskull. Maybe he's Scare Glow's nemesis?

    Triple H could play "Castle Grayskullman" in the next Masters of the Universe movie!

    Congratulations to the winner. A very interesting design. Reminds me a bit of Horde Prime who uses the head from the horde symbol.

    Yeah, it's definitely better than those two clowns but the name is terrible.


    The Grayskull Sentry or something along those lines would have been better. I also like the Guardian of Grayskull but that's He-Man's job.

    I could see this new character forming from the bricks of Castle Grayskull to defend it from lesser threats.

    I completely agree, I wish we had at LEAST one new character that was female. Pretty disappointing in that department, but defiantly digging the idea and concept of this character nevertheless.

    Agreed.

    I think he looks cool (would have done without the hair, though) and I'll definitely add him. Don't care much for the name, but couldn't care less for the bio as I don't think they matter for anything anyway. And since the name is just what will be on the package I will be tearing off, I don't care much about that either.

    So, I think it's a win.
