Scorpio?

As you can see in this image, the original design of Scorpio from the He-Man season one episode "The Heart of A Giant" was very different to what appeared in the final episode. The Scorpio design originally was more humanoid in appearance, whereas the creature in the actual episode looked more like a scorpion. It is hard to see why such a change was made, and it is a shame as this creature looks a lot more threatening...

Perhaps because of clumsy looking arms?

Looks like flower petals around the face in the original sketch ... I prefer the final version, but I always found it strange how the creature has a cat-like snout! :)

Thanks for reading! God Bless...

Actually, the flower petals to which kevin is referring make Scorpio resemble a lion (like King Grayskull's cat in the 200x MotU) In my opinion, he looks much more menacing in the sketch...
