I am trying to finish my Castle Grayskull, which includes making the other side and the inside. I'm trying to replicate all the items in the stickers and cardboard cut outs that the original toy had. So here is "Protector" made mainly from Roboto, Captain Glenn and Carnivous.

The hardest part was figuring out how to paint him. I wanted to match the colors of artwork but I didn't want him to look tie dye or psychedelic. I tried several versions until I finally came up with this. Plus I also wanted him to fit in with the MOTUC figures, so I couldn't get too crazy with the sculpting. I used the same rules from the character contest, I tried to use as many existing parts as possible.

I added the original artwork at the bottom for comparison.

It's been a while, sorry!
I don't think I have ever posted images of my Ram Man custom on my sites.
I'm thinking about casting the top part because he is way too heavy!
