    Whatever makes sense. The one donated to the charity auction went for $605 all signed and framed!

    I would rather have this artwork printed on canvas than buy a cardboard box that is going to fade though.

    The way the artwork is printed on my original castle grayskull box shows no sign of fading anytime soon.

    I would love to get them all but $200 for just Grayskull is very steep no matter which way you look at it. I'll have to see what the final product looks like and think it over.

    Cool, thanks for the link. Is this the actual prints colors? It's interesting that it's much darker than what was used on the box.

    It looks even better in person!

    I just sent an email to Rudy for exact details so I will let everyone know the specifics when he gets back to me!

    I bought the Battle Cat box art from him for $50 at PC. It is amazing artwork and printed on a thick cardstock like canvas. I pre-ordered the Castle Grayskull as well. It is extremely impressive and much larger than the original box. The only thing I am worried about is the cost to frame these bad boys!

    $220 is steep, but i'll save for Grayskull. i've wanted it for a long time I can likely save for the sacrifice. they look huge!

    You know, I had some major sticker shock at first... but, this is actually on par with how much prints cost in the real world. You've got the original artist offering you a high quality print. Once I saw the prints themselves I realized it was totally worth it. I couldn't do it right at the show, but I'm definitely getting one of these bad boys after I recover from PowerCon.

    May have been answered; but will Rudy be signing them as well?

    Cause I think a signature would help the 200 price, although most prints like this can be higher pending on what vendor/dealer you are buying from...

    yeah i was REALLY hoping for less but you're right. I will do my best to save for
    Grayskull at least!

    Yes you just have to request it when you order. No extra charge. I'll take a picture of my Battle Cat print shortly to give you an idea of what to expect.

    Does anyone know the rough dimensions of the Grayskull piece and the other pieces that were available? Any pictures for those of you that picked them up at Power-Con would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I don't know the exact size but you can see the Grayskull print on the easel behind Rudy. See that other guy behind Rudy? That's the actor that played Blade doing a live weapons demonstation! Power Con was amazing!


    I also took pictures of the Battle Cat art print I purchased. I included vintage Battle Cat to give an idea of scale. It is 22"x13". This is printed on high quality canvas stock and Rudy signed it in silver ink. I am really happy with the print.






    Hope this helps make your decision easier!

    That is awesome! I think I will have to get that one. What other prints did he have available other than Grayskull and He-man/Battle Cat?

    If I remember correctly he had another one with Battle Cat (smaller), Battle Ram, Wind Raider, and the Manta Raider. I think he had others but they sold out really quickly!

    Check out his professional work here http://rudyobrero.com/professional/. I should have brought some of my daughter's Barbie DVD covers for him to sign

    Can't wait to hear more about this! I've wanted this artwork for years and just didn't know of a way to get it.
