Warlords of the Universe – On Sale 12/12/12!

Joe Amaro is back with a new cool custom creation that you can buy for use with your MOTUC figures!

On sale this Wednesday, this custom set allows you to transform your existing Castle Grayskullman into a brand new character, or for those lucky enough to grab some extra CGM figures, an army builder!

I suppose you could buy this just as a base for CGM and use the skull and helmet to create an additional character of your own using another MOTUC body or as set dressing for your collection.  I have to say, I love this concept wholeheartedly and hope to see more add on parts for MOTU figures in the future.  I can imagine tons of custom kits that would allow you to create a host of brand new characters by adding parts to existing figures.  It would take advantage of the existing parts-swapping capabilities of these figures and could actually help Mattel sell extras of the figures to fanatics like me.  For a line that seems to be always teetering on the edge of cancellation, that can only help, right?

The set going on sale this Wednesday at 9 PM, EST includes the rocky base, a skull, and a helmet all for $30 shipped in the U.S.  That seems a little high until you factor in that it’s hand cast and painted.  If you haven’t seen it, check out the vintage style commercial at http://www.warlordsoftheuniverse.com/.  It sells this set better than I ever could.

  1. Awwww man….I passed on getting a CGman mainly cause he looked like Hulk Hogan….well after he had been interred for a couple of years anyway, his body sculp was kool and I saw the potential for an army builder especially a guard detail for the new Castle GraySkull on the way…..but the too ugly for radio mug drove me off and now I know they’re not going to release them anymore, even if fans demand one more go so says Matty nooooo. So I missed out I guess, shame too if I hadn known about this juicy extra I may have bit on a CGman or 3…….

  2. You better not let Mattel see you plugging a 3rd party option! They might get mad and not let you do First Look’s anymore!
