    Does anyone display or play with their MOTUC figures on the original Snake Mountain? How do the current figures stack up?
    I googled it the other day, and it looks rather dwarfed with the MOTUC figures, but here is a nice custom painted vintage set with the new figures:

    With the Grayskull accessories... I'm looking at a couple compositions, but my favorite right now is a kind of Isometric view of Grayskull, pullled back further than the original was, so we can see the base, the bridge, Point Dread on the top of it, the flag and gun, etc.

    For Snake Mountain? Much like I paid homage to Rudy's original painting, I'd like to do a similar thing with Snake Mountain's box art paying homage to William George's original box art painting... So the sky will be deep blue/black, but we'll be pulled back further to see the mountain.
    There will probably be Skeletor fighting He-Man in there, with a variety of Skeletor's minions and thugs around the mountain paths and such.

    I'm actually needing to get it all sketched up nice enough to send onto Icon Heroes and Mattel for approvals. So anything could change at this point.

    Oh, so the Grayskull expansion pack will have new art as well!! That's awesome!! Somehow I though you were only talking about Snake Mountain!
    Cannot wait for both!
    Also, any news on possible prints? I got the mousepad during Power-Con but would love a nice print of the Grayskull art.
    Por el Poder de Grayskull!!!...
    Ya tengo el poder!!

    I have no doubt it will be awesome. You do GREAT work, my friend! Can't wait!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    The Snake Mountain statue was the coolest thing I saw at Power Con. And that's saying something considering how awesome Blade and Scorpia turned out! It actually made me reconsider buying the Grayskull statue after I had already decided to pass on it because I know both of them together will make one heck of a display environment. I can't wait!

    No word on prints right now.

    I would love to see this happen for sure... Time will tell.

    Ah, thank you!

    Yes it makes SM look like the Fright Zone (size wise) but very cool nonetheless!
