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!
The Masters of the Universe Classics massive Snake Mountain playset was first shown off several years ago by Mattel at one of the San Diego Comic Cons and then shelved for awhile until. Super 7 then took things over for Masters, and they showed it off at last year's San Diego Comic Con. Now it finally looks like pre-order's process for this will begin. While we still don't really have specific details about the set, Super 7 has announced that they will begin taking pre-orders for Skeletor's lair starting in May. Stay-tuned for more on this to be released soon and be sure to check out their new teaser image as well as our detailed images of the prototype they had on display during Comic Con last summer. UPDATE: Super 7 has announced that the playset will cost $600 with a 6 month payment plan.
