    Manhole cover for MOUTC Castle Grayskull - Double sided

    Since Mattel didn't include one with the Castle, I've sculpted a manhole to fill the Wind Raider/Jet Sled hole.

    It was designed to fit into the same hole as found in the base of the Windraider stand, which is the same plug as found on the castle. I can provide a photo of the cover set into the Windraider stand if you would like.

    Basically, if the manhole doesn't fit, then the Windraider flight stand won't fit in the castle either.

    Looks great! I had an idea to cover the hole too, but with a well like this:

    A tea light inside the bottom lights it up with "power".

    I wasn't sure where to out this but I got my Castle Grayskull manhole cover from BadVermin. It's a really cool little piece that has truly been an appetizer for the main course that will be Castle Grayskull! I reviewed it this afternoon here

    I cannot wait to add this to me Castle when it gets here! C'mon, Mattel! Ship! Ship!

    Oh, and no I'm not done with my MOTUC. If anything, the space I made for Grayskull has given me more room to display more stuff. I'm contemplating going back and snagging a Granamyr now.

    Thanks for the kind review!

    The manhole does fit in the flight stand tightly, however the hole in the Castle itself is slightly larger, so you will not need to use a tool to remove it from the floor.

    I test all the manholes in the floor section to make sure they fit before I send them out.

    Just to clarify, the manhole is double sided, so both designs are included. I've received a couple of requests asking for one design or the other.

    Do NOT ask if these are available! Please go to the marketplace.


    A mod has repeatedly given me infractions for answering this question.
