a.k.a. Castle Grayskull Mug Set
This is a three-piece mug set that when grouped together forms a castle very similar to Castle Grayskull from the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe story franchise.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is an American animated television series produced by Filmation based on Mattel's toy line Masters of the Universe. The show, often referred to as simply He-Man, was one of the most popular animated shows of the 1980s. The franchise has since spawned a huge cult following and resulted in further toys, collectibles, television series, a film, annual convention and much more. Castle Grayskull is a fortress located on the fictional planet Eternia and was a pivotal part of the franchise, having been issued as a playset in the 1980s and serving as a great topic of mystery and machinations in the extended storyline.
Hale Pukaua MOTU is perhaps from an alternate reality where Castle Grayskull was turned into a tiki bar. Some subtle tiki elements decorate the castle, such as a glass fish float in the eye and hibiscus flowers around the ram skull on reverse. It also features the STARR TIKI logo on the reverse. The three mugs included in this set fit together together for display but do not actually interlock. The left and right mugs have indents that allow the center mug to sit into place.
This mug set is STARR TIKI's first foray into the mug manufacturing world. Designed and produced by Jesse Starr. It was designed as a pre-order of 150 pieces on July 12th, 2020 and orders began their first delivery in December 2020.
