Happy Birthday He-Man #2 - The setting suns...

In the storyboard panel from "The Problem With Power" we can see that the original shot of He-Man looking out over Eternia's landscape atop the turret of Castle Grayskull was much different to what was seen in the final episode. Tom Tataranowicz's original vision for this shot called for a close, but low angled view of over Eternia. If you read the directions you will see that Tom Tataranowicz wanted the scene to take place as the Eternian suns were setting...

How I would love to have seen this shot completed just like Tom T. wanted it. I am sure it would have been even better!

The use of shadow effects dominating He-Man is amazing!

One of the most impressive scenes from any toon from the 80's and this would have brought it to another level and wished they had included it.
