    Yes, it's in that shot. Again, it's covered in part. and what you can see in that shot is about a third to half of the symbol.

    And yeah, Skeletor should try the other doors.

    Ordered mine and can't wait to get it in the mail!

    Really hoping a customizer will make a nice laser canon and flag pole to go with it. Not to mention the training weapon and rack!

    Hmmm, part of me wants to avoid these threads now until I get it so I can be surprised.

    Maybe it will sell well enough to convince IH to do a bonus pack of stuff to add on.

    A mini Sorceress, the canon, flag, maybe even a Point Dread?

    Endless possibilities for cool stuff!!!

    This CG is freaking awesome! I don't care how small it is. This could possibly be the best item coming out of the Classics era. My mind went in a million different ways when I saw this. I want a Snake Mountain as well. DO IT. DO IT.
    As for the symbol. Check the spine on both sides. One side is stone & the other has deep indents. Don't know if this is it or what I'm supposed to be looking for at all. We'll figure it out.

    Is it the Grayskull "G"?? The same symbol on Tytus' chest harness?

    This really is quite exceptional. I don’t think I could ever justify not purchasing this. I’d never forgive myself lol. I’d also love to see a series of miniatures produced of the core characters for display purposes.

    Really hope you guys do Snake Mountain.

    This could be the start of something special.

    This looks beyond amazing. Not crazy about the knob on the top of the skull (it looks like the ridiculous helmet that Vykron wears) but that is nitpicking. Everything else is incredible and as soon as I am able to I will pre-order this bad boy.

    The "knob" on the top of the helmet harkens back to the prototype of the play set and all the Alcala art in the first few mini comics. I think it's a great nod to the castle's initial appearance.

    That's correct. that's exactly why it's there.

    I'm really struggling on this one. I love everything except the "brick" brows and nose. The organic look of the Alcala and Obrero skulls are my favorite interpretations...but everything else about this piece is soooo right. Oh, the pain, the pain of decision making!

    Just got it ordered. The measurements mean it won't display in the Ikea cases except displayed sideways. But the thing is awesome!

    Nate, this is a gorgeous one. I don't fully agree with other posters that the non-Filmation Grayskull is the "true" version, but this is the best non-Filmation version I have seen, a true piece of art and excellent in its medium.

    Hat's off to ipsissimus_clay for catching that Cosmic Enforcer symbol as I was totally not going to see it from the angle posted (or any that I've seen posted either).

    Very clever putting the Cosmic Enforcer's symbol on there, very clever indeed.
    Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!

    Put the CG on top of the Detolf case. I think that's what I'll do.

    I'm very tempted but would probably have to be a UK seller as postage and customs would no doubt kill me.
