I never noticed Green Goddess lurking in the background until now. I presume it is on the original cover box cover too. :)

On the vintage box from 1982?  I like to think she's back there. ;)

No, no... I meant the castle model. I do not own it, but I did not notice her when box art was released. :)

Gotcha… :) Yep, she's always been there and is on the packaging.

Hey man.  I totally respect you wanting to honor contractual obligation by not making a high resolution image of this available, or just flat out selling posters of it.  That being said, I need you to sell me a poster of this.  Kidding.  But seriously, I desperately want a poster of this image.  Who could I talk to at Mattel, or whoever holds the rights to try and get permission?  Or to license this image and sell copies as a licensee?  Please help!!!

Icon Heroes owns the art, under license by Mattel. ;) Good luck!

My eagle-eyed son just spotted something that I never noticed before. Can you confirm who is emerging from the jaw-bridge? Here's an image for everyone else to reference. i164.photobucket.com/albums/u1…

Nice! While it does indeed look like someone is coming from the jaw bridge... I didn't intend to paint anyone in there, so we can just chalk this up as a happy accident, tell your son, he can imagine whoever he wants in that shadow. :) The outline you've made there looks like either Clawful, Fisto, or Jitsu.

Could we please have this is a bit higher resolutuion to use as desktops? That would rock!

As much as I'd love to, I need to respect the owners of this art and not distribute higher resolution images. I hope you'll understand. :)

Need money... to buy... this! Buy two... one MOC, and one... to display.

This might sound odd, but I hope the MOTUC CG box can hold a candle to this piece as far as quality, composition and characters selected. Great work!

The fact that you're now involved with MOTU in an official capacity is the best possible thing for the franchise! Having someone of your skill level who is passionate about the product...well, the results speak for themselves. This rendition of Grayskull rocks my socks off.
