    A castle for my son

    My older son kinda ruined my 2002 figures way back when but now my 3 year old loves He-Man, so now he plays with them. My Castle Grayskull was damaged pretty bad and buying online is crazy expensive for a 3 year old so I made him a huge minus the skull I'm not that good. So here are a few pics

    Very, very cool!

    Man, I wish my dad had made that for me. As it was, my brother and I thought the empty refrigerator box was the coolest toy ever.

    For the skull you could use a skull mask. Check any costume shop that sells masks (since we're not near Halloween, you may find them even cheaper.) You should be looking for the ones that are made of harder plastic. Like Vac Metal Skull masks that are made of hard plastic. Just cut the lower half of the mask, sand it to dull any sharp edges (and remove the vac Metal if your skull had any vac Metal) attach to castle and paint.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    This is a great idea. Thanks for sharing, the castle looks like it has a lot of play possibilities.

    That does sound cool. The funny thing is that I found him a 2002 Castle Grayskull for $50 new in box on ebay like 3 days before I finished, so he'll have for Christmas right when I get mine.
    My next 2 projects for him will something like snake mountain and a weapons rack for swords, ninja turtle weapons , ect

    That looks like a fun castle Now that you've got a Grayskull coming, this could make a cool Eternian palace
    The pictures of him inside it are adorable ^^
