Heman and the Masters of the Universe burst on to the pop culture scene in the early 1980’s.  The storyline featured a battle between good and evil and centered around the control of Castle Grayskull.


Presented is a rare factory sealed original Series 1 Castle Grayskull in outstanding condition.  Recently graded just a few short months ago, this AFA 80+ 12-back example is the highest graded Castle Grayskull we have ever offered.  Those that follow the market will recall the Castle Grayskull sold in our previous Fall Auction, an AFA 80 first release, set a record for the iconic playset realizing a final price of $22,206.  The sale made headlines and was featured nationally on Fox Business News.

This example is nearly flawless with the only blemish of note being a crease on the front extending from the bottom corner near the Mattel logo.  We invite all interested parties to closely examine each panel as we are quite confident you’ll be impressed.  Simply put, this is the highest graded Castle Grayskull that has come to market in recent memory.  Best of luck to all of our bidders!  Approximately 28.5 x 6.5 x 21 inches.   Encapsulated by AFA (80+), #12051660


Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000
