    Can anyone I.D. this Castle backdrop piece??














    I found this Castle backdrop piece at a Thrift Store the other day....and immidiately thought itd look great displayed behind my Heroic Warriors MOTUCS! (Which it does!) Its made of a stone material or plaster. Its pretty heavy. The only markings it has is CHINA printed on bottom. There is a hook on top of the doorway....which might either have been for a drawbridge...or maybe to hang a plant or something(?) Sorry its not the greatest pics. Anyone have any idea on what it might be from?? Thanks!

    EDIT: I added a few more pics to show the width of the castle and the hook and inside of archway.

    It could be,....but theres a metal hook on the front of it above the doorway. Dont think thatd be on an aqaurium piece as the hook is metal.

    Im thinking its some sort or hobbyist castle piece....a garden piece, or a generic background piece to display. Whatever it is, it looks awesome! If anyone has any ideas please chime in!!

    It's too big for most aquariums. Probably meant for a garden. The hook is a total puzzle to me though.

    Ya between its size and that metal hook....I doubt its for an aquarium. I think the hook is prolly for something to hang down inside the doorway/archway.

    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    Thanks! Ya I think its perfect for a castle background display. I never would have room for a Castle Grayskull.

    Could be some sort of gaming terrain, maybe, but those figures are usually a lot smaller than MOTUC. Might even be some kind of custom piece, but I have no idea for what.
