I believe it was winter of 85' or 86'. I also remember getting all the Golden Books as well. A great X-mas.
I remember the Christmas morning I got my Greyskull, my brother who is 10 years older then me was able to get his hands on one! It was so cool I loved all the weapons it came with and would give my he-man figures some variety. The box art was the best packaging art ever. I also keep my big toy packages until they got beat to **** then I would huck them, like the deathstar star wars playset box. The castle was such a cool playset for my masters to fight over, skeletor and his crew would shitkick the masters and vice versa, always over the ownership of greyskull, also often played with them as conan the barbarian and the Castle was to become my generic castle for other toys I played with as well (ad&d, sectors, m.u.s.c.l.e.s., gi-joe, star wars, you name it! Snake Mountain was another year and was still never as cool as Greyskull in my opinion! I still love the one I have but I somewhat wish I had my original! I sold my entire he-man collection at a garage sale when I was a kid (huge regret trust me) I love Christmas morning memorys.
i'm sure it was x mas i got mine, not sure on the year, i beleive i was in kindergarden. i got my first motu figures for easter before i started school. it's tough to remember when .

Got mine for Christmas 83.. well, technically. My Parents wanted to get me CG but it was so hot it was sold out, so they got me some figs and whatever instead... then right after Christmas the stores restocked and I got it anyway.
Uncle Montork has returned from Trolla!
I did! Christmas of 1983. I'll post some photos if I can find them.
I think I got mine on Christmas of 85 or 86. What a great Christmas morning!
I got mine Christmas of 1984
Me with my dad that Christmas Eve evening. If you look closely, you can see a Jitsu card-back on the floor next to us.
Here's the setup I woke up to. Now Castle Grayskull was the Christmas present. All the others were items I already owned.
And finally my reaction to Castle Grayskull that Christmas morning.

I got mine for Christmas 1983......but I remember getting Snake Mt and my Fright Zone more vividly
I remember not having much money as my mom was a single mother. My aunt was a 21 dealer in Las Vegas and made very, very good money. I dont remember what year it was but i remember having our normal Christmas morning Presents from Santa and from my mom. A couple of Masters of the universe guys, not much but she always did great and tried her best. This one Christmas though was special...........after all the presents were opened my mom went in her room and brought out a huge box from my aunt. I remember opening that box and out came a Castle Greyskull, Snake Mountain and about 10-15 different guys and vehicles. Best Christmas of my childhood! To this day i can look at the boxes for Castle Greyskull and Snake Mountain and its like im taking back to a time when there was no evil in the world other than skeletor and his goofs. God i loved that christmas
