Weekend Away #2 - Swords at the Ready!

"Treasure of the First Ones" is full of great visuals, for the most part due to its change of location, and for its inclusion of the pirate Sea Hawk and the debut of Octavia of the Evil Horde. One of the more memorable shots of the episode occurs as the Evil Horde prepare to raid the building on Mystic Isle, but are greeted by She-Ra and Sea Hawk. I love the angle on the heroic pair as they stand swords at the ready for the immanent battle.

A very powerful and colorful upshot of the main heroes from this episode. :) This island is just as impressive to look at as the one featured in He-Man's "The Ancient Mirror Of Avathar!"

Hope you can showcase some stills of the sword fights between She-Ra/Sea Hawk and Octavia, in the future, James. :) I was blown away by how tall Octavia was compared to the heroes! She probably stands between 6' 5" and 7 feet tall! No wonder she was too much for poor Sea Hawk to handle!

Still, this was a magnificent episode, and I got a kick out of the defeated Octavia laying on top of a disgusted Hordak, near the end of the episode. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

This angle on the heroes is a great one!
I also like the fact that She-Ra has her sword on the left hand and Sea Hawk has it on his right hand, so they are "bookending" their poses with their respective weapons.
