That's no mouse...

It is funny how a panning shot can make a monster look so much larger than it actually is! In this assembled panning shot from the season one He-Man episode "Orko's Favorite Uncle" we can see the Manticore was very big, but by no means a towering giant. For some reason I always imagined the creature to be so much larger, but this image shows its true size! Also it appears that Prince Adam is not even looking at the Manticore...

Imaginary deleted dialogue...
Prince Adam: "Huh, Orko! Those are some very big claws that guy's got!"
Orko: "Uh, Adam! There's more to come! Keep looking upward and check out his razor sharp teeth and the rest of him! Yikes!" :)

But really, the Manticore does look smaller than expected here, and I agree with you, James. Funny "illusions" these panning shots create, eh? :) Would be amusing to see an assembled shot of the giant from "Orko's Missing Magic," at the end of Act 1, on this Blog, one day ... Maybe. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Manticore is no mouse! haha!

Awesome pan-shot. I never noticed that Adam's eyes are not directly looking at the Manticore.

Thank you for pointing it out.
