With pleasure!

Here is an action packed panel featuring Fisto and Trap Jaw from the minicomic "Masks of Power". Very few artists could draw panels as detailed and explosive as Alfredo Alcala, and I for one am so glad that during his lifetime he worked on Masters of the Universe.

I was so surprised when I recently downloaded a pack with all the mini comic scans (mine got lost in time) and found that the one featuring the earliest origin of he-man for the toyline was illustrated by him, his work there is astounding. I love his swamp thing work.

I'm not sure if I've commented before, I check this blog regularly and I love it.

Poor Trap-Jaw ... Right in the kisser! Check out Trap-Jaw's green-colored jaw ... This reminds me of the goof-up in "The Region of Ice," when He-Man throws Trap-Jaw towards Skeletor and Beast-Man. Trap-Jaw is once again shown with a green jaw in the shot where his face moves closer and closer towards the audience, as he is thrown. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless!

lol, when I was a child I always tought this scene was too much violent! probably this is because of Trap Jaw's face expression! the poor 'tin brain' faces a direct punch on his nose :(

Fisto is the best! His one liners prove it. Sven-Ole Thorson, who appeared in almost every Arnold Schwarzenegger film in a supporting role would have made a perfect on screen Fisto at the time.

Even as a kid I loved this illustration. It defines the character (and action-figure) of Fisto just perfectly. And you gotta love the look on poor Trap-Jaw´s face.
