    Grayskull Standard - news, updates, stuff!

    Iīd like to use this thread for everything related to the Grayskull Standard, which we introduced last year as a Grayskull Convention exclusive. Since I am constantly developing new additions for this accessory, I rather have everything collected in one place instead of a gazillion of threads.

    So here we go :-)

    The original Grayskull Standard Con-Exclusive was this set:

    It was offered exclusively at Grayskull Con 2013 in a very limited supply. However, we underestimated the demand by large, so we offered attendees at the convention and for a brief period of time after the convention online to order more Standards, which sported a "The Original" sticker.

    This Standard came with 5 fabric banners (hand cut and sewn):
    Horde (donated by Karsten MAXX Klintzsch)
    Snakemen
    King Grayskull
    King Randor
    Castle Grayskull

    I donīt have the final numbers of how many sets were sold, but they were still very limited and I think less than 200 units are out there. So if you ever should find one online and feel you should need it, get it while you can ;-)

    Earlier in 2014 I came up with 5 more banners:
    Horde Invasion
    Great Rebellion
    Galactic Protectors
    Skeletor (based on Daniele "Danbrenus" Spezzaniīs design in the Grayskull Con minicomic "Under Grayskulls flag")
    Temple of Power (based on Axel Gimenezī design in the MOTUC minicomic "Their final battle")


    The first run of this set has been sold out, but I will definetly do a second run if there is enough demand. I need 20 preorders paid in advance to start production of a second run.

    There was also a contest for this set, where I asked fans to send in a photo of their collection featuring the Grayskull Standard. The winning photo was used as the cardback and was taken by Sascha Bischof:


    I recently showed a teaser of a potential third set of banners:

    There are many many ideas for future banners and I will keep making these as long as you want them.

    Furthermore, I just finished an add-on for the Standard itself: A display base:
    Directly from Preternian times and all the way into the future comes this Grayskull Standard display base. Fits the original Grayskull Standard and allows for a secure stand, when all your actionfigure warriors need their hands free to fight for good or evil.


    Last but not least:
    If this is the first time you hear anything about the Grayskull Standard and you think to yourself "Dammit, I need this awesome accessory!", please head over to my Shapeways shop, where you can get the Standard and its display base. The first set of flags is sold out and will not be reprinted, to honor the exclusiveness of the Grayskull Con release. If you want those flags, your best bet is ebay or to check out the marketplace sections of fan forums worldwide.
    As mentioned before, I will take preorders for a second run of set #2, but I cannot start production on this unless I have 20 sets preordered (at $12 each, including international shipping)
    You can find my Shapeways Shop here:
    https://www.shapeways.com/shops/weapons-forge


    Please feel free to discuss the Standard, ask questions, suggest new add-ons and keep checking back for more infos on future releases!
    And:
    Thank you SOOOOOO much for your continuing support!

    I really love these, wish I could have picked up the first set when it was out - but I respect what you are doing by keeping it an exclusive.

    The stand looks really great DJ Force!

    Love the standard and all the flags released so far. So happy to have them in my collection.
    Looking forward to the proposed third set and many many more.
    The stand looks nice as well and is a great idea.

    Just got my set of Wave II banners and I almost don't want to take them out of the packaging, they look so cool! Luckily I can & not have to worry about ruining the cardback since they come in a polybag for easy open/close. I can't wait to see what you come up with for Wave III or any other add-on accessories!

    I am very glad you like the stuff so far.
    Hereīs another teaser for the third set of flags, coming somewhere in late 2014.


    If you are interested in the recent set of flags, please drop me a PM with your full name, address, email and the number of sets you want.
    Each set is 12 Euros and includes international shipping. However, I need a minimum of 20 preorders and upfront payment to start production on a second run of this set.

    Unfortunatly, no. Otherwise 5 other sets would be missing their Horde Invasion flags. You can always trade with other fans, though. Most people have one Standard and at least 5 flags, of which they can only use 1 at a time. Maybe they bought their set just for that one flag, so the others are leftovers they might be willing to trade. I encourage you to just ask in the marketplace.

    I was just able to slightly reduce the price of the Standard at Shapeways, while at the same time installing the order-option for Polished Metallic Plastic. This way the Standard will come pre-colored in a nice silvery plastic.
    If you want the Standard, get it now. It wonīt get any cheaper.

    Do you have a website where we can go to get a pack of all of the currently made and released flags so we can catch up with them all?
