    It happened. And it is not a great character.
     
    He-Fans and She-Ravers,

    After almost one year and over 1,300 entries, we have a winner of our Masters of the Universe® Create a Character Contest!

    During the Mattypalooza fan panel at SDCC it was revealed that “Castle Grayskullman,” created by Daniel Benedict, was chosen as the top entry and will be made into an actual figure available this fall as part of the 30th Anniversary line.

    The contest gave fans the opportunity to create a new MOTUC character based on bucks from existing 6” figures. It was the perfect chance for them to let their creativity shine.

    The panel of eight judges included members of Mattel’s marketing, entertainment, packaging, and design departments. They evaluated each entry, looking for concepts that had an original name and look, used approximately 50% shared parts, were easily translated into a toy, and fit into the world of MOTU. Daniel’s “Castle Grayskullman” wowed the judges, cleverly incorporating details from the vintage Castle Grayskull® Playset.

    The big announcement was made during the SDCC fan panel, where new art created specifically for Daniel’s concept was also revealed. In addition, Daniel will receive a 2013 Club Eternia® subscription, and he will be interviewed for an article right here on MattyCollector.com. Best of all, he’ll have lifelong bragging rights as creator of a new MOTUC character!

    In addition to the winning entry, five runner-ups were also announced during the SDCC fan panel, and each of them will also receive a 2013 club subscription.

    We congratulate Daniel and the runner-ups, and thank everyone who submitted for an incredible turnout!

    –Matty

    P.S. Per the contest’s Official Rules and entry form, all entries remain the sole property of Mattel and may not be used or posted by anyone else (including any entrant), in any way, for any purpose.

    if that's real, I quite like the design. hate the name and fear the potential bio.

    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.

    I actually think it's cool. Totally wacky awesome, like MOTU should be.
    I'm not 100% certain that this is real, though.
    EDIT- The more I look at him, the more I love him. I hope this isn't a gag!

    I've got the same feeling

    Regarding the character in itself, I'm quite... perplexed

    I really like the design and look of that character. His name is blah but he is full of awesome details. He would make a good army builder for guards for the Sorceress and Grayskull. He is my second favorite of the 30th thus far and he is only less cool than Draego Man since he lacks wings.

    Totally, good call!!! The Sorceress is under attack, with most of the Heroic Warriors busy elsewhere, so she casts a spell and conjures an army of these soldiers as a last ditch effort to defend the castle.

    Congratulations, then! (You lucky so-and-so. )

    I've already started getting the parts to customize one of my entries - didn't figure I'd win, but it was worth a shot.

    This figure is freaking awesome! Very excited to add this to my collection.
    I would love to hear what inspired this creation.

    Congratulations, man!!

    You just became a controversial artist, Daniel!
