    What a great idea. What was pretty much a simple design to fill some vintage Grayskull playset wallspace, becoming a fully fleshed out figure. (Well, not fleshed... you know what I mean!).

    Good work.

    ah, cool! I loved that cardboard robot/spaceman/whatever. Nice to see a revamp =D
    People who say certain characters should never be remade is stupid. Throw rocks at them.

    I support Filmation characters for MOTUC! Let Mattel know it's worth their while to get the rights to those characters!

    That's one fine piece of art! I can imagine Webstor or any other Skeletor henchman sneaking into the inside of Castle Grayskull and then Defendor appears and pummels the bug like Robocop.

    What an inspired idea! As either a robotic sentry or an Eternian space suit this concept is wonderfully re-imagined. Great work Buffalo-Bill-Man.

    No custom needed. Just print it out and there you have it
    If anyone wanted to do a custom of this character I'd be thrilled.

    That's what I was going for. So it's nice to see it worked.
    One little detail that I changed was the little blue square on his helmet I moved from one side to the other. I can't remember why, probably to fill a blank space that needed something.

    I'll be interested to see how people handle the Cut-Out portion of this. I have some ideas but haven't done my own yet.

    Thank you.
    I like to think he could be both a Suit and a Robot. Basically a hollow Robot/Suit
    Like if Prince Adam had to go into another dimension he could where the suit and then while in it, if he were knocked unconscious, the suit would take over and bring him back to the gateway in Grayskull. Just how I saw him anyway.

    Thanks David,
    I for one can say I'm very greatful to have done some fun work for you too.
    By the way, I have not forgotten about your most recent project Either. I ended up having to take on a TON of work unexpectedly, but you should be getting some previews by the end of the week

    It was really fun being able to finally show this because it's just been collecting dust in my hard drive for sooo long...

    Love the imagination! He'd have to say "Thank you for your corporation" LOL

    Yep, I did notice that. I think you made it a bit better that way. But yeah, that's basically the only difference I could spot, so that's pretty incredible! Nice attention to detail man!

    DEFENDOR with Graykull background:


    Here's another version of Defendor with a simple background for an easier cut-out.

    BBM: i've said it before, and i'll say it again--obscure characters are my favorite kind of characters! great work on the illustration, and the DIY cardboard cut-out idea is sweet.

    has anyone on the org ever made MOTU/POP paper dolls? errr, i meant paper action-figures.

    I always thought that was supposed to be some kind of old space suit or something. Of course, I first encountered Grayskull in the pre-Filmation days when the basic idea was that it was a fortress left over from before the Great War and held technology that most of Eternia was ignorant about.

    I like what you have done with it, though. It does indeed make good use of this mysterious artifact.

    BBM's redesign was brought up over in the MOTUC forums so I had to do a search... this is fantastic!! I'd love to see this suit/character be made into a figure for the MOTUC line!!

    I hope you don't mind BBM but I snagged the file for personal use (just to store it on my hard drive for easier searching in the future).
