Extended fight scene! #1

"The Dragon Invasion" is one of the most memorable episodes of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. One of the best scenes in the episode occurs when the Heroic Warriors storm Castle Grayskull to battle the Evil Warriors. In the actual episode the fight is almost over before it has begun; we see Jitsu battle Ram Man and lose, a very brief shot of Trap Jaw trying to blast Stratos, and Skeletor fleeing Teela. However, in these fantastic storyboards by Don Manuel we can see that the fight scene was supposed to go on a lot longer! Most notably in these first two pages we see Evil-Lyn attack Man-At-Arms...

What an amazing scene that would have been ... Evil-Lyn is illustrated beautifully as she casts the spell! The far off images of "Chopper/Jitsu" make his head look like Spikor's. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

I absolutely loved these fight scenes in the cartoon. i wish we had more of them happen in the show. They were always a welcome addition.
