Real name: D’vann Grayskull
Growing up under the oppressive rule of the Snake Men™, D’vann was driven to rebel against injustice when his brother was captured and eaten. Others flocked to Grayskull’s banner and his legend began to grow. Declared King for his courage, compassion, wisdom and strength, Grayskull™ became a great leader, ruling along with his council of wise Elders. A destined guardian of the Sword of He, Grayskull™ magically passed his essence into the blade with his last breath – ensuring that only his heirs would now wield it and tap into the great power it harmonized with. After his death, the sword was split in two and its power transmuted into a great orb inside his castle, protected by Grayskull’s devoted and loving widow.
To help celebrate the return of Masters of the Universe® toys to collector's shelves, Mattel created a special variant of their San Diego Comic Con exclusive King Grayskull™ action figure as a "Spirt" that will forever live in the walls of his castle. Only two editions of this all-clear version of King Grayskull™ were made for the public. One was raffled off at 2008 San Deigo Comic Con, the second was auctioned for charity at the 2008 Dream Halloween event.
