Castle Grayskull & Snake Mountain repaints by Ryan Lansdon

One of the most famous childhood playsets of all time, Castle Grayskull was a huge epic looking beast with ladders, guns, weapons rack, trap door and came in a wonderful shade of murky green. Here’s where Masters of the Universe fan , and toy collector, Ryan Lansdon stepped in and unleashed his artistic skills upon the classic He-Man playset. Ryan got to work and now the castle looks like a real castle! Below you can see the highly detailed repaints and the classic originals for a side-by-side comparison. “By the Power of Grayskull…I Have the Power!” Masters of the Universe Snake MountainHe-Man and the Masters of the Universe Castle Grayskull Next Ryan took his hand to Snake Mountain, the rather amusing looking playset that was always the poor cousin of Castle Grayskull despite packing a trap door, voice changer and huge snake. Anyone else think the face on the front looks like Cyril Sneer from the Raccoons? Anyway, another glorious repaint later and you have two awesome looking playsets with details that really pop! I wonder what’s next for this talented artist? I vote for the Ghostbusters Firehouse.

He-Can and Skelecan: The pop culture art of Grim Nyberg

Graffiti and mural artist Grim Nyberg has taken a couple of broken Masters of the Universe figures and created He-Can and Skelecan. Custom figures taken to a whole new level of awesome, they have the power!

His work also includes huge bespoke murals inspired by Ghostbusters, Star Wars, RoboCop, Mario and other Pop Culture Icons. I’m sure he would be happy with more commission work so drop him a line via the website.
