Castle Grayskullman Customizing Kit from Joe Amaro on sale December 12th

You might remember that awesome Warlords of the Universe commercial I posted a while back. It was a collaboration between toy-maker Joe Amaro and Castle Grayskullman creator Daniel Benedict which showed off some cool new accessories to turn your MOTU Classics Castle Grayskullman figure into, well, a different looking version of Castle Grayskullman! Basically, the idea would be to create an army of Castle Warriors!

Well good news! Soon you’ll be able to buy your very own Castle Warriors Customizing Kit!

Warlords of the Universe – Fake toy ad from Daniel Benedict and Joe Amaro

My good friends Daniel Benedict and Joe Amaro have teamed up to bring us this incredibly fun fake toy advertisement! Gotta love how the commercial looks like it came right from an old VHS tape!

I know what you’re thinking, but I can tell you that as of right now there is no word on if this is something Joe and Daniel will actually be selling. But, they do have a website set up at WarlodsoftheUniverse.com. So, I’d probably keep my eyes peeled there just in case an announcement is made about a sale!

Interview with Daniel Benedict, creator of MOTU Classics Castle Grayskullman

At the 2012 San Diego Comic Con, Mattel revealed the winner of their Masters of the Universe Classics Create-A-Character contest. The winner announced was Daniel Benedict for his creation Castle Grayskullman.

For his win, Castle Grayskullman will get a release in the 2012 Masters of the Universe Classics 30th Anniversary Collection toy line. He will receive the same treatment as the other figure, even getting sculpted by the Four Horsemen.

The new figure was on display at the show in the the Mattel display cases. He’s a very interesting design, featuring the look of the famous castle from Masters of the Universe. His face is that of the castle’s, his shield is from the drawbridge, and even his swords are taken right from the designs seen on the flag that stood atop the vintage Castle Grayskull playset. It’s a very creative idea for an action figure, and I immediately felt that this felt like a great figure for a “create-a-character” contest win.

Soon after the event, I was contacted by the winner himself, Daniel Benedict. I took this opportunity to ask him if he’d be willing to do an interview with me, and he obliged.

Read through to find out Daniel’s reaction to winning, and to see his incredibly creative “vintage” toy commercial for Castle Grayskullman!
