Weekend Away #11 - He-Man's heroic chin!

In the season one episode "Dawn of Dragoon" He-Man saves Dragoon from the Bottomless Hole of Trolla! When He-Man frees Dragoon from the vines that bind him to a large boulder we see some animation of an almost off-model He-Man. While he is obviously He-Man the first image you can see he looks a little too detailed around the face, and in the second image he has the most heroic defined chin we have ever seen in the series! Obviously the director was okay to let this slightly expressive animation slip through, even if it is a little odd...

Agreed, James. :) He-Man's face is illustrated much like Superman and Aquaman, here!

This animation reminds me of the "Lion-O-esque" detail on He-Man's face, in the close-up shot of him versus Skeletor aboard The Collector, from "Colossor Awakes." :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Dang that second screengrab looks interesting.
Never even noticed it so thank you very much for pointing it out.

Maybe the director didn't notice it, though I do like the idea that they did see it and let it pass...
