Happy Birthday He-Man #14 - Power of the Iron Master!

Possibly the most memorable image from Ladybird book "The Iron Master" by artist Robin Davies has Skeletor's evil robot holding aloft the Sword of Power! This book is filled with very powerful and striking images, most if not all featuring the Iron Master. Sadly the image that followed this one of the Iron Master would show his demise, melted by the lighting hitting the sword...

This illustration is just as phenominal as the one featured in the "Fly Stratos! Fly!" Blog entry with those haunting, atmospheric dark blue clouds ... Just looking at this image alone, the Iron Master appears to be unbeatable!

Don't remember owning a copy of this story book, but I do remember one story that featured an underground entrance to Castle Grayskull via a dried out water well ... Can't remember the name of that book, but I used to own that one. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Evil entity holding the Sword of Power! This breaks all the canons! LOL!

Awesome image from Robin there.
The expression especially is an interesting one. Sad to hear of IM's demise...
