Strongarm was Chopper?! #2

Here is yet another storyboard panel showcasing how artist Don Manuel illustrated Strongarm in place of Jitsu for the season one He-Man episode "The Dragon Invasion". It is amusing to see dialogue and scenes that would end up as Jitsu's given to Strongarm. I personally would have liked to have seen Strongarm make at least one more appearance in the series...

The sketch of Strongarm reminds me of Hordak smiling, when he is up to no good. :) Yes, I totally agree with everything you've said, James! Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

I hope to see Strongarm as action figures motuc!

I didn't know this at all. I wished he had stayed instead of Jitsu/chopper.
Strongarm deserved more screen time.

Strongarm is awesome.

I would of loved to see Strongarm in more episodes. i think he is a great villain. And I am glad they changed the name from Chopper to Strongarm.

I would love to see a Strongarm figure as he was terrific in the show. Sadly we only see Jitsu once and both these figures need made!

Yes, it's so obvious when you think about it, Strongarm and Jitsu had the exact same action feature and were both villains, it was only natural that only one of them made it to production.

That being said, for Filmation purposes, Stronarm would have been a lot more PC (even before that term was widespread) to feature as a recurring character than Jitsu...

Strongarm was vastly underused, in my opinion. I loved him as soon as I saw him, and have always wanted a figure. At least there's light at the end of the tunnel now that Mattel have the Filmation rights! Now, let me get this straight... in the cartoon series Jitsu was called "Chopper"?
