That’s right, it seems a crucial piece has been overlooked – the connector bridge between the Grayskull Tower and the Central Tower.”
You might be wondering about this mysterious piece of MOTU history so to understand the significance of the Castle Ramp, we have to look back at MOTU history at the vintage Eternia Playset.
Vintage Eternia Playset
Looking at the vintage Eternia playset, you can clearly see a bridge or ramp connecting the Central Tower to Grayskull Tower. The ramp appears to be blue in the catalogs shots but the piece was actually brown in the produced set.
In the Eternia Playset instructions, you can see the “Castle Ramp”
The grand vision would concept the vintage Eternia playset with Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain.

Could this have been overlooked by the Mattel team as they were designing the gigantic structure? Possibly! Eternia comes with the Snake Bridge but did they forget the most important bridge of them all. If you recall, the vintage Eternia playset also came with a bridge that not only connects the Central Tower to the Grayskull Tower, but it also connects the Castle Grayskull! As Mattel was showing concepts for the MOTU Origins Eternia Playset, they created updated connector pieces that never made it into final production.
Castle Ramp Add On
As Yerco states on his Cults3D page,
“🏰✨ Attention, Masters of the Universe Origins enthusiasts! Have you noticed something missing from the new Eternia Playset? That’s right, it seems a crucial piece has been overlooked – the connector bridge between the Grayskull Tower and the central tower.
But fear not! I present to you the missing bridge, completely free of charge. 👑
This bridge, compatible with both vintage and Origins sets, was brought to life with the assistance of Ryan Charlie. He flagged the issue and collaborated during the printing and testing phase with his vintage and Origins Eternia. A huge shoutout to my friend, Ryan – your help was invaluable.
A word of caution: The Grayskull Origins Tower (2024) is taller than the vintage version, so they are not interchangeable. Pay heed to this detail as you enhance your Eternia Playset experience. 🌟💪
