Believable action sequence...

I thought it would be interesting to feature a specific image from a great little piece of action as seen in the season one He-Man episode "Quest for He-man". This frame, which is shown all too briefly, beautifully showcases Ram Man's destruction of Tri-Klops' War Sled beyond repair! I should mention that in the original script a more believable conclusion to this action sequence was written. Instead of falling from a great height into small mud pond, He-Man catches Tri-Klops in the Wind Raider, flies close to the ground, and then drops him into a fish pond...

Watching the episode, the impact of the collision is very powerful, for this scene! Ram-Man using a parachute to land is priceless, also. :)

The original idea, for this moment in the episode, is similar to the scene in She-Ra's "A Lesson In Love," when Hordak punishes Mantenna by ejecting him from Hordak's ship, followed by She-Ra catching Mantenna, as she is carried by Swift Wind, and finally She-Ra dropping Mantenna into a nearby lake. As She-Ra would state, her solution would make for a "softer landing" for the villain ... Maybe the creators of the She-Ra episode referred to the original sequence in "Quest For He-man" for the scene featuring Mantenna. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
