Toy accurate Trap Jaw!

As a huge fan of Trap Jaw I can honestly say that I prefer the cartoon design more than the toy design. Don't get me wrong, I love the toy, but the simplicity and vibrance of Filmation's version will always be more appealing to me. That said here is a fantastic panel of a highly toy accurate Trap Jaw from issue one of the UK Masters of the Universe comic that always stuck in my mind as a kid...

An impressive rendering of Trap-Jaw with lots of detail, especially on the cyborg arm attachment ... Looks like the illustration of the action toy on back of the packages that housed the figures. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

I liked both the toy and cartoon version of Trap Jaw (one of my all-time favourite characters), but I always felt that the cartoon version's arm was too short and stumpy. Granted Filmation often simplified designs at the best of times, but TJ's arm alwasys needed to look me pumped up IMO.
