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!

Manta Raider Packaging Revealed and Possible Delay

Joe Amaro has sent out an update concerning the upcoming Manta Raider, which was first set to be available at Power-Con this weekend.

From Joe:
The Manta Raiders casts have not arrived, there is still hope, but we may not have them in time for Power Con. Unfortunately, this means I may not have time to do a pre-sell. I am sorry.

The good news is that the Manta Raider is still happening and Rudy has agreed to sign all the back cards so if we don’t make it to Power Con and we have to do online ordering all the Manta Raiders will come signed by Rudy Obrero.

Along with this announcement, Joe has given us the first look at the awesome blister card packaging for the Manta Raider, featuring the artwork of Rudy Obrero! Looking sweet!

We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on the status of the Manta Raider sale!
