Remaining Evil...

Trap Jaw, Tri-Klops and Faker were always the last three Evil Warriors mentioned during the introductory section of the UK Masters of the Universe annuals. This first occurred when their action figure prototypes were featured in the 1984 UK Masters of the Universe annual; they were all mentioned in the 1985 Masters of the Universe annual, but Faker was not illustrated on this occasion; and finally in the 1986 Masters of the Universe annual, the last one to give an introduction to the series, this illustration was featured...

The color variety is awesome in this illustration. :) What a team ... Looks like they're planning an ambush! Faker really means business, on this occasion!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Long haired Faker looks very cool here. As a child, I always thought his colours were a bit too silly (even though I love blue!) But now, Faker is so retro-cool. It's funny how time changes your mind sometimes.

They make a great trio! I can see Klops and Jaw being the brains and taking charge of Faker as their enforcer! Trap Jaw programs him and Tri-Klops trains him!

I've still got the 1984 annual, I used to just pore over that picture of all the toys for hours on end, just like I would with the WWF Hasbro figures a few years later. Still probably could pore over it actually, might go dig it out now!

I do not like this picture at all. Trap-Jaw's head just looks strange, Tri-Klop's has a square looking visor, and Faker has too much of a "human" expression on his face.
