    Thanks man! Yeah, I wanted a Grayskull that actually looks like it's been around for god-knows how many centuries; worn down, forgotten by time. I like the feel of the mini-comics castle the best out of all incarnations, so tried to go from there. I kept all the "must-haves" like the wooden balcony, the ledge, the wooden braces on the brows etc. and kinda freestyled the rest. It also has a fully detailed backside with doors that lead to the towers and a winding staircase. Stay tuned for more

    Great work and craftsmanship! You should take some photos with the mini-figs from 200X or some of the die-cast vintage figurines (if you have any)!

    Thanks for the kind words I got some more work done. Still needs some more paint and I still need to sculpt the crest for the door... It's sculpted with 2 part epoxy.

    That is really well done - I love how ancient it looks. That was a great direction to go.

    I could never figure out how those guys got to the top of the towers, so I took the "realistic" approach

    I'm working on the crest, "pawn" and additional (separate) pathway piece up to the drawbridge.

    Stay tuned

    Edit: My Castle Grayskull measures approximately 10.4" H x 9.2" W x 7.6" D, so in hight and width it's slightly larger than the Icon Heroes version; that one measures approximately 9.75" H x 9" W x 11" D.

    Thanks man!

    Well, I´m a casual MOTU fan (collect ThunderCats) so have no need for a large (MOTUC) scale castle. I've thought about maybe getting the Icon Heroes piece, but I really, really dont like the front of that thing, so I deceided to make my castle The fact it's almost the same size as the I.H. GraySkull is just a coincidence, just how it turned out

    ok, YES, this is fantastic! great sculpting job, and great painting job! and, I too love the decrepit direction you went in, as well as the fleshing out the rear/doors/paths/etc. really awesome interpretation, and flawless execution! some of you folks' talent is just awe-inspiring!
