I Think I Am In Love

2012 was the thirtieth anniversary of Masters of the Universe. To celebrate, Mattel offered a line of six "new" characters in their subscription-based Masters of the Universe Classics toy line. Even better, one of the figures would be designed by a fan as part of a Create-a-Character contest.

The winner of the 2012 contest was Daniel Benedict, who created Castle Grayskullman. He's sort of the living embodiment of Castle Grayskull, only with swords and Hulk Hogan's hair. As sculpted by the Four Horsemen, the character perfectly embodies everything great and everything goofy about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe in the 1980s.

I don't have any Masters Of The Universe figures in my collection but I often see ones online that I wish I had. This one is so goofy so it goes to the top of the list.

I have VIKOR. Is this an official figure or just a model?

I understand it's an official figure that was the winner of a 'design a figure' contest from Mattel.
