    Custom Alcala GraySkull Interior

    So I've always been abit bummed about the Castle Grayskull Classics playlet we got. Although its an amazing piece in its own right and amazing from the outside, I felt the inside was lacking, in features and scale. Being a massive fan of the earlier Alcala mini comics I wanted to create something to fill the gaps. With Snake Mountain on the way, i thought id attempt to make some better display options for the inside of Grayskull. I'm currently working on a lower level and rock base to stand the Castle on, but this is a massive project! and I'm only half way through. So for now I'm content to show you guys how I've been spending lockdown in the Uk and grieving for a family member who recently died just as i was finishing this up. Based on the very first mini comic, HeMan and the Power Sword. All of it was created with foam and coving adhesive, spray paints and wood, even the extra candles, crate and stone slab. I haven't posted for a very long time but been around for over 10 years on here and visiting often. heman.org is still the kingpin of the MOTU community! Enjoy Keep Safe and look out for my new character I'm creating that I'm gonna show soon and more images of the Grayskull base !xx

    If you need more source material to draw from check Battle Ram's Blog. He has like 3+ articles on Castle Grayskull from a bunch of different media, including some prototype stage stuff that got cut before the CG we all know and love came to be. There are links to him all over the news section on the .org's homepage.
    I need help selling some items. look for my listing in the Miscellaneous Marketplace Forum. Important details in thread

    I collect MOTU/POP, Transformers, Garfield the Cat, & 80's/90's Book & Tape/Record Sets. I collect VHS & DVD of 80's-00's properties and comics. My YouTube Channel titled: Feb Mon

    Thank you @Griffen112182! I shall indeed check stuff out. I am planning on creating all the prototype extras for Grayskull. Thanks to everyone for their kind words. Making this stuff is a total labour of love.

    So i thought i would add a few more images of my Grayskull Alcala room without anything included so you can all see the structure abit clearer. You get the sense of colour used and scale.

    Here are the next set of images I'm working on for the Grayskull base. Its scaled for classics but works great with the vintage figs too. the idea was to build a base for the castle to sit on. Again taking inspiration from the Alcala mini comics I combined the secret cave , where the Goddess presented the weapons to Adam ,as a secret space into Castle Grayskull! The back of the cave opens and takes you in to the lower depths of the castle! Where there's also steps to the Well Of Souls! This is just one half so far and I still need to finish the doors on the higher levels.

    What material did you use to make this? I have been long considering making a massive dio in my room based on the filmation design of the Castle and its surrounding area.
