Hail the champion.

Here is an impressive final panel from issue sixty-nine of the UK Masters of the Universe comic. Having beaten the forces of evil in various competitions the Heroic Warriors are victorious, and of course He-Man is hailed as a champion. Interestingly King Randor is seen here with the costume that his action figure sports. In previous stories by this artist King Randor wears the same costume that appears in the Filmation cartoon. That said, during this artist's run on the UK comic the latest wave of Masters of the Universe figures including King Randor had just been released, and so he was almost definitely asked to adhere to the design of the action figure.

Ah, more beautiful colors. :) In case you didn't know ... He-Man won! The guy all the way to the left, in purple, looks like an impostor who is up to no good ... Think the opening scene to "The Dragon's Gift!" :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!
