Happy Birthday He-Man #19 - Breaching Grayskull...

Here I present another illustration from one of the Masters of the Universe coloring books, and once again it is an image that always makes me laugh! In this picture we see Skeletor trying to enter Castle Grayskull. Now that's nothing new. But the manner in which he is trying to enter the castle is highly comical. We see him trying to pry the door open using a jack, but the joke is more focused on the equipment he has already tried, items including a blowtorch, a hammer and even a saw! If anyone feels like coloring this image I'll send you a big nice scan! :)

No hook? No rope?

Now that makes for a huge belly laugh! :) I remembered you e-mailing me about looking forward to uploading this image to your site, and now, at last, it's here ... Excellent job, James! :)

Too bad this version of Skeletor didn't think of using Man-At-Arms' Rock Softener, from "The Royal Cousin," or try answering 'The Drawbridge's Riddle,' from "The Secret Of Grayskull!" :)

Also, is that the volcano from either "Disappearing Act" or "Quest For The Sword" in the background?! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

hahahaha Skeletor must have been really desperate this time.

I love that he's doing it by himself, no Beast-Man or anything, no group of villains 'tug-o-warring' it, just trying to pull it down by the aids of modern carpentry!

Just goes to show that Skeletor will do anything he can in order to get inside Grayskull.

Go through from below, using another dimension....or a rope. :)

Love the pose Skeletor has. I am not sure but I think an image very similar might have been in a mini-comic. Need to check it though.

The array of weapons and tools on the ground is simply hilarious!

Now this image is just classic! I am surprised he didn't try a can opener :-)
