The first time it became apparent that the digital master of "Diamond Ray of Disappearance" had something wrong with it occurred when Mattel released certain episodes of the Filmation series to video cassette during the 2002 toyline. When I watched the episode the first thing I noticed was that an entire scene was missing. After Skeletor makes King Randor, Queen Marlena, and Man-At-Arms disappear, we suddenly cut to He-Man and Battle Cat outside of the Royal Palace; thus losing an entire scene showing Orko's escape! Sadly the same version of the episode appeared on DVD, too. It is sad to think that this brief comical scene has been lost forever. Here are some stills from the missing scene; for those of you that have never seen it!
