    Thank you my fellow Eternian ! All this craziness going on has given me a little more time to work on some of the smaller details. Helps me take my mind off stuff. You folks stay safe out there. Wherever you are

    Now he just needs to hold aloft his magic sword and say "By the Power of Grayskull!"

    Can't argue with that. Honestly, I've never really wanted a 'back. Possibly a 'third wall'.... but if I couldn't get inside the castle to play, then it wasn't much use to me Bridge gives more play room, back takes it away.

    LOL I see yíalls point on the bridge vs the castle back. Iíve had fun building the bridge Iím satisfied with its turn out. The bridge cost me a little under $15 to make and most of its supplies came from the Dollar store and Walmart

    Iím amazed at how much the spray foam completely sells the look. And your paint job is perfect. You are killing this.... Iíve tried finding that same skull bowl lol
    Please check out my custom figures. The first few stink but I get better.

    I love working with that spray foam. I found the skull bowl on eBay it was the only one I could find that was large enough and the skull eye sockets just screamed Greyskull lol

    Did a bit more work to the front door/jaw bridge on my castle grayskull

    The crest is a custom done by a guy that goes by wartoy bunker on eBay. I think he did great work and these would also be great for some of you that do MOTU custom figures. This would be a great shield just add a handle

    This is looking absolutely beautiful so far, it's going to be such a wonderful display when you've finished it.

    Keep up the great work.

    I wanted one when he first made them. Just the price is a bit high. I remember his post when he found that sticker to put on em. This was awhile ago. I should bite the bullet and get one though before he decides to not make anymore. I'm pretty sure he's the one that came up with the manhole cover back in the day for the castle. I got one of them right away. That thing is cool. Only was like 12 or 13 bucks.

    Hey, I'm in the middle of doing a grayskull dungeon dio for one of my new display cases. What brand and color green did you use? I was gonna head out to walmart and check their craft paint out and buy all the colors that come close. But with your info you can save me time.

    Iíve found 2. Both are the same color which is Laguna but both just as good and Iíve found them at Hobby Lobby and Joanns. I usually do a base coat of flat black then a dry brush of gray then top coat it with the laguna. As for the mirror man I know itís like $30 but I highly recommend biting the built cause pictures donít do it justice lol

    Went to my Walmart the whole craft section was wiped clean. No paint at all. Went online to Michaels hobby lobby and Joannes. Michaels has one that called teal green from their brand craft smart that looked good but sold out. Hobby lobby was sold out of basically everything especially any teas or greens. Looked at adrift as an accent actually and luguna I may have of apple barrel. I'm pretty sure I have that color for when I did my granamyr dio. I grabbed a bunch of colors and did samples and that was one of them. OK cool. At least I know I was on the right track looking online. Joannes looked to be my best shot as the other two stores were out of the colors that were in that color range.

    Yeah I know ow man. I made brick work individually on a few of my projects. Lol. Drawing out the grayskull style brickwork sucks too. It's like tetris. I'm in the middle of it right now. Had like 10 ft x 12 inches to do. Almost done lol.

    But I think there is a certain feeling of satisfaction that comes from a job well done. It's looking great!
