    Opinions wanted: Point Dread for MOTUC Castle Grayskull

    Greeting He-fans!

    My next large project is going to be a Point Dread style playset. I was thinking of just offering the top section, and not including the base.

    Options -

    1. Only include the top section that attaches to the castle. Price would be $X

    2. Three part kit, with separate top, base and computer section. Price would be $XXX

    3. One part kit, has a short and straight 2" base, with permanently attached computer section. Price would be $XX


    So what do you think? Is the base important or is the top section where all the fun is to be had?

    Hmm, I'd think 3. would suffice. Namely because it'd be easier to produce as a one-part kit. Oh, and if it comes with a Talon Fighter, I'll be glad to help.

    I'd be down for probably #3. Do you plan on prototyping all 3 options and then going from there based on interest?

    I think is important for us to see your previous works, so we can have an idea of what to expect.

    If it's at least half as cool as the manhole you made I'll buy whatever you make.

    That will teach me to try a different way to upload photos.

    I drew these quickly last night, and are a rough approximation of the final product.

    Since there is pretty much zero chance of Mattel releasing a Talon fighter, my plan is to have different display options.
    First, the Windraider/Jetsled flight stand and secondly, the option to display the flag.

    For option 3, the lower section will seat inside the castle tower which would have the added benefit of making it MUCH more stable when the Windraider is attached.

    I'd say #3 as well. More compact and wont stand so high.

    Personally, I like option 3. But please take into consideration that space is really an issue with how people are displaying Greyskull - room is at a premium.

    Will the pegs be set up to hold the MOTU Talon Fighter? How would it hold the Sky Sled?

    Thanks for doing this, can't wait to see some mock-ups!

    Like this:



    I added the Windraider and flag to show how they would appear, I will also have an attachment available for the old school Talon fighter.
