    Sorry for the long delay guys.

    Well ive been working on some upgrades... Remember that i mentioned i dont want visible joints, but i didnt want the figures to be static ider, so here is was i was able to come up with:


    Bendable arms and legs... Hope you like it.

    Interesting. Did you use a wire inside the plastic to make it bendable?

    Personally, I would have stayed with the solid plastic just because there's less chance of it breaking down over time maybe... Plus you were using magnets for the joints right? So at least the arms and legs could move a little.

    Did you ever get around to making the Filmation colors Catra?

    Great work as always - stay safe and healthy!

    Yes it is wire and i made the first test longer than a year ago, so im pretty sure, it will keep its flexibility; it is not the same material as it was with the solid resin. And testing the material for this long was a must from the very begging, i wanted to make sure my figures have duravility.

    But im always leaving the option for anyone who wants my work, to decide wich way do they prefer their figures.

    The joints are made of resin, im not using magnets on any of them... i though to add magnets but only on the feet, so they can stand alone, but magnets this tiny are quite expensive, plus you have to add a metal base to work, so i quite with that idea.

    Right now i have several pieces on hold... Due to the covid-19 stores had been closed for more than a month, and there are supplies and materials that i lack right now.

    So to avoid not working on pieces that allready have molds made (but i can not complete), im working on pieces with new sculpt, diferent type of boddies and heights.

    That is the reason you dont see me posting updates quite often, i tend to work on sculpting pieces that im aware i wont be casting imediately, and also, there are some others that i ended up modified them, or not even finishing them at all.

    Thank you, You as well!

    You have no problem in hunting old toys, and waiting if new one will be released... you simply make your own.. you got an awesome talent sir.

    Yes, in the back will be a "halo" to represent Light Hope, and it will have a light up feature... At the beggining the desing that i had in mind was bigger and complex, but at the end i decided to go with a much simpler version, totally filmation inspired... Im making this for sale, because i think making OOAK hand made playsets, it is a good way to keep working, earn the money required to be invested and avoid to violate copyrights.

    I place the link in the proper area (market place one) when the time comes for you that may be interest for this playset.

    Ill be doing something similar to this Frozen playset for the interior:

    BTW its heigh is 37 inch on top of the vintage playset... so it is 1 inch taller than Snake Mountain Playset.

    What I'm looking at in the pics is so amazing that I can't exactly understand what I'm looking at.

    The thing about it being taller than the Snake Mountain playset puts in some perspective.

    Wow!
    There's a YT channel "PlayerDez" --- a toy-related show I help with... and here's a link to a He-Man parody video LIVING IN ETERNIA part 1 on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6ySlu94Yfg This video is currently being re-edited for a full re-release in 2021. Shout-out to animator He-Bro!
    GOOD JOURNEY, ORGERS!

    Thank you for your words!

    That was just the first prototype. That was a fiberglass casting, the "good one" will be casted fully in transparent resin. Im working on it right now.

    BTW i'll be making SM playset as well - my version - . Actually i'll be making Grayskull, Fright Zone, Whispering woods, eternia, etc...

    This is the final version on the filmation castle topper... The custom playset is still in process but almost done, as you can see.

    This is how the interior is looking so far... it will be inspired on the filmation castle and due it is a 360 scale model it will contain everything we saw on the tv show.

    I like your interpretation. I actually usually don't like when people change the castle's face too much, but I like this one quite a bit. Also how it's taller and skinnier than most other versions. Should be cool.

    I made a forced perspective, so it looks taller, although it is in right scale for 6" figures.

    Im glad ypu like it so far.

    Here is probably the last WIP photo before revealing the final facade at least... this will be a long term project due the dimensions.




    Hope this photos help others to build their own version... This is a recipe for a huge, light weight, 360 playset.

    Yeah, I'm diggin' it. I really like the forced perspective. I'm building my own and it's the opposite of yours - SUPER HEAVY. Sometimes I wish I went the lightweight route... I started off down that road, then it broke and I was like, ok I'm going heavy duty with it. I'm clumsy with things. I break my toys often - going back to breaking my G1 Optimus Prime. Man that was a tough day... I was heartbroken.
