At Skeletor's mercy...

Although I was not a fan of the way in which the artists drew the backgrounds during the Mike Young Productions version of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, this background from "The Price of Deceit" is beautiful to behold. Larry DiTillio originally wanted to make this location the ruins of Shokoti's temple from the original Filmation series, but that idea was vetoed by those in charge of the show. I love how tiny Evil-Lyn and Skeletor are when compared to the evil that clearly lurks throughout the vast structures of the ruins...

This is one of the best episodes of the MYP series, and I love the background so much! It seems to be a locale that could have been revisited again, and fleshed out in even greater detail. Shame it didn't have the opportunity.

Agreed! One thing I loved about the 200X series was that it showed how evil Skeletor was and it doesn't matter who you are. You cross him, your dead! But of course, Evil-Lyn did have a spell on him that wasn't made of magic!
