    Yeah that was part of the motivation, I have 2 sons (10 and 8) that have been playing with MOTU since birth... they thought the idea would be cool, so I went with it. Now they tell me that they will NEVER move out, and if they do, they are taking these painted walls with them!

    I love how you integrated the shelves into the mural. Really nice work.

    Here's another angle of SM. I think it looks pretty 3D here, especially the stairs... just a cool optical illusion.

    This is before I painted The Grayskull teeth.

    Yea I figured a lot of people would just want a cool background of these settings to display their figures on, if they don't have the space for the playsets.

    Really cool Rydell!!! The best part is this will be ingrained into your boy's memories forever. The lengths and creativity their Dad went through for them. Very clever work there!

    Nicely done!
    I'm thinking of turning a small bookcase with doors (like the old VHS tape cabinets) into a Castle Grayskull. Should be relatively inexpensive and will be HUGE in comparison to the MOTUC Castle. Comes with three leves, plus a top that would just need some Castle like ramparts and maybe a tower. Just an idea I'm kicking around.

    This is really great!

    I might try something similar for my son's bedroom. He watches the Filmation cartoon religiously and I'd have no doubt he'd be really excited at having Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain backgrounds painted on his wall.
