Extended fight scene! #2

"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! In these pages you can see how the battle between Trap Jaw and Stratos was supposed to conclude, as well as a scene in which Battle Cat fights Panthor!

Awesome, once again! Notice the sketch of a portrait of The Sorceress on the wall next to Trap-Jaw! I'm pretty sure that Stratos' remark to Trap-Jaw was identical to He-Man's dialog in a scene from "Creatures from the Tar Swamp." :) It looks like Battlecat uses a similar energy prison against Panthor like the ones featured in "Game Plan" and "Cat and the Spider." :) Skeletor's additional dialog, about escaping through an energy portal, was amusing too! Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Stratos really has an advantage over Trap Jaw here, due to the fact of his ability to fly. The Dragon Invasion was one of the best episodes of the cartoon. Totally awesome
