Road Rage!

This image always makes me laugh - It's an illustration from one of the Masters of the Universe coloring books (one of a thousand or so) that they produced throughout the eighties. It makes me laugh because the scenario surrounding the illustration appears to be strange...at least the one I create anyhow. From the image I get the impression that one day Trap Jaw was just peacefully driving along the Mystic Mountains in his newly designed vehicle, when loutish Ram Man decided to strike out at any passing Evil Warrior. Just look at poor little Trap Jaw's expression. Even he cannot fathom the reasoning for this completely unprovoked attack! And if anyone feels like coloring this image I'll send you a big nice scan! :)

I remember that one! There were some aweful illustrations on those colouring and activity books. But there was one particular one that had a kickass cover. It was a blue cover with He-man charging into battle on the Battle Ram! Awesome stuff if anybody can post a pic!

Yes, it does look like Trap-Jaw's the innocent "good guy" in this illustration! The poor fellow probably ended up in the mud, as many villains in the He-Man series have. :)

A rather odd looking vehicle for Trap-Jaw to be driving, as well ... It looks so un-Eternian!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

LOL Fantastic image! Thank you for sharing it!

Anyone who has read the mini-comic "He-Man meets Ram-Man!" will know that old Rammy will knock anyone who gets in his way. Maybe Trap-Jaw crossed paths with Ram-Man without budging...

This is nuts! What the heck is Trap-Jaw doing driving a car/tank type of vehicle?
