    Preternian Castle Grayskull

    I was going back and watching the 200x series. I’d forgotten that Castle Grayskull was white when Grayskull died and had some detail differences (carved detail in silver bands on the towers with gold trim, more symmetrical bricks).

    I know it’s all retcons but since He-Ro is said to die before Grayskull and a lot of 200x has entered the lore, has anyone done artwork or customs of a vintage 80s Preternian Castle Grayskull?

    I’ve seen a few Etsy and eBay sellers doing novelty Grayskull customs but I’ve never seen a Preternian white Castle Grayskull, either 200x or Vintage.

    I think it’d be a really cool facade for He-Ro and Eldor with a bit of putty/clay, a white coat of paint, some accents.

    Here’s a quick album:

    Like I say, color, more symmetrical bricks, the two bands under the windows.

    Otherwise it’s “on model” with the MYP Grayskull.

    There does exist a different-looking Preternian Castle Grayskull in 80s materials.

    It's by no means a "new invention" in 200x (just like they didn't invent the Mystic Wall, yet fans believe that).

    Reference appreciated! I wouldn’t mind seeing the deco tower bands from 200x added.

    The lack of a jawbridge in favor of double doors is a neat touch.

    This might be a very fun custom if budget ever permits.

    @jukka, that's an awesome image! (I love the ghost in the lower right.) Is this from the minicomics?

    So something that hit me on this:

    I wonder if the Powers of Grayskull box art should be interpreted as Castle Grayskull.

    That would make the deco a bit more interesting.

    White Castle. The gray and gold decorative bands from 200x. Chrome skull with some translucent green overspray around the bottom of the cheeks and around the eye sockets with black sockets.
