Finding the sword...

Prince Adam has gone missing, and it is up to Orko to deliver the Sword of Power in the Ladybird book "He-Man meets the Beast". What I like about this image by Robin Davies, and all subsequent images in the book showing Orko with the sword, is that it is far too large for him to hold upright. In the animated series, and this is something that I think Filmation got wrong, Orko was always able to hold the sword effortlessly, except of course in that one commercial bumper!

Amusing how Orko looks as though he is seeing the Sword of Power for the first time! Love the "Hawaiian Punch" reds used for Orko's hat and robe. :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

Could it be that Orko didn't have any problems picking up the sword because he would use magic everytime so as to lift it effortlessly...? Just a wild guess...
