Man-At-Arms' mystery construction.

Throughout the He-Man series we often saw a panning shot of Man-At-Arms' laboratory, revealing just how vast it was. One thing that never really occurred to me until a few years ago concerns the extremely large construction in the background. It almost appears to be a large tank-like vehicle on treads. We can see that it is incomplete as there is machinery surrounding it. Did Man-At-Arms ever finish this construction I wonder? And does anyone have an idea as to what they think it may have been?

Looks like a laboratory on wheels! It must be solar-powered, just by looking at the solar mirror on top. Plus, it's got 2 headlights right next to each other. The attachment on the right-hand side looks like it either carries luggage or a torpedo, or probably both! It could be the Eternian version of a mobile home! Very impressive contraption, though. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Howdy

It looks to me like a war vehicle a sort of ultimate tank if you will:)

Which ep does this appear in?

Just look at the details on that thing! People can say what they like about Filmation's animation style, but their famous panning-shot backgrounds were sublime!

It's hard to say, but it looks like some sort massive transport or war machine. Perhaps just to have around in case the Palace was destroyed and they needed to make one heckuva get away?

It's cool enough to make me want to put it into a fanfic, I'll say that much.

I think it's a giant spaceship left over from Filmation's Flash Gordon cartoon or something. Actually, it reminds me of Star Crash and Krull.

I'll tell you one thing. It's massive. :)

Tank is what I'm thinking as the most propable explanation.
But did you ever get any official information about it and what it is?

I would really like to know if there is any information out there. :D

reminds me of that massive prison transport from the secret of the sword movie.

perhaps its a former horde war machine he's trying to re-purpose into something the eternians wouldn't be ashamed to use
