We will keep this one firmly in the rumor category for now, but listings from an online distributor have shown up listing both a Castle Grayskull playset as well as a Moss Man figure for Mattel's Masters of the Universe Origins line. The other things listed were items revealed back in August during Mattel's Power-Con at home panel. The Castle Grayskull playset is listed with a 11/20 date and Moss Man with a 9/20 date. Moss Man is also listed as being for Power-Con which is odd. Not sure if those are supposed to be releases dates, but that seems unlikely to see these items on shelves that soon. Any items released this year for MOTU Origins would be released as Walmart exclusives here in the US. Again for now, I would take this one with a BIG grain of salt until we hear something more reliable. Thanks to Adam for the heads up. UPDATE: An image has surfaced via ENDZEIT for what is said to be the inside of Origins Grayskull playset along with a Sorceress figure. At this time we cannot confirm the legitimacy of this image.
New to the forums but been a longtime browser of TNI--love this site! I wanted to share a couple of custom painted vintage Masters of the Universe playsets: Grayskull and Snake Mountain. I absolutely love MOTU and as I was gearing up my anticipation to collect the Origins line, I wanted to revisit Grayskull and Snake Mountain with an updated paint application. I normally don't like the idea of touching a vintage toy, however, I believed there was a killer playset waiting to come alive from behind the subpar and uneven factory paint job given to both sets. After priming and dry-brushing applications using acrylics (standard colors and vibrant neons for SM). The only portion sprayed on is the primer I used as the rest was hand brushed. I only amplified the amazing details that were already there. Grayskull's interior was painted with purples and blues (with stars added) to give off a mystical effect of universal power emanating from the Castle. I was inspired by the colors and themes from the original mini comics. I left the accessories alone as their vibrant, flat colors was a nice contrast that actually made it feel (for me) as though this scene popped directly from the comic pages. For Snake Mountain, the interior paint work was highly influenced by Youtuber "Count Stankus" who gave his custom a Monster Golf /fun-house 'glow' vibe--a great 80s look for a great 80s toy! I took notes off his work because he really nailed the effect. Either way...displayed is my love for ALL things MOTU and my process leading to the final product....hope you enjoy and thank you for letting me share!
