Is that a Hover Robot?

In the She-Ra season one episode "Small Problems" we are treated to one of the oddest appearances in the series. One of Skeletor's Hover Robots appears on Etheria, manufactured by the Evil Horde! Now those with a keen sense of vision will have noticed many moons ago that the head of a Horde Trooper is basically that of a Hover Robot. So it could be argued that a Hover Robot on Etheria is not really all that much of a surprise!

What shocked me was how much BIGGER the robots were compared to the ones in the He-Man series ... These looked unstoppable! Thanks for reading and God Bless!

No surprise...Hordak was Skeletor's mentor, and ol' Bonehead probably cribbed the design of his weapons off him. Do you think the ultimate evil gives two frigs about intellectual property and copyright infringement?

I was just about to post the same comment that Haggis McCrablice made. Sure, they appeared on "He-Man" long before "She-Ra"--but we can always retcon the story, and assume Skeletor stole the plans for them, right? :)

I would really like to see Mattel make these robots for their MOTU Classics line. I always liked them as a kid.

Skeletor once worked for the Horde, so the hover robots he used, could have been from that same design.

I'll bet you're now bamboozled by my logic and I'm not even a robot, LOL. :D
