Tataran's Army!

He-Man's "The Arena" is one of season two's best episodes. There are two opening panning shots where we are introduced to General Tataran's warriors. While these panning shots are very much filler material they do function as great expositional scenes showcasing the scale and variety of General Tataran's army. Be on the lookout out for the obvious extended background joins in this image!

And here we have the very familiar panning shot of Snake Mountain covered by General Tataran's army!

These two panning shots of Tataran's Army are well done, in a spooky sort of way!

On this occasion, the first panning shot is a prelude to the usual panning shot of Snake Mountain. Usually, any introductory scene of Snake Mountain opens up with this well known view, as shown below, but never before have we seen another shot of the Snake Mountain environment featured BEFORE the familiar panning shot!

Also, I get a kick out of the typical animation of the villains raising their fists like they are ready for a fight, as the goblin on the right-hand side of Snake Mountain does, in this scene!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

It appears that the General Tataran has avery valuable army! I agree with Busta in the episode The Arena is one of the best of season two. There is a long battle, good new characters-pictures (like this) and much outside scenes.

WOW. Just look at that army and them Lizards the army rides on!

They need fan-art! Stat!

Thank you for making these pan-shots. Nice to see the intercut skies of Filmation.
