Unused Zem design #1

The season one He-Man episode "The Return of Granamyr" is notable for its character model reuse. We see Zikran and Jarvan from "A Friend in Need" appear as Brindle and Zem respectively. And the character model of Aroo from "Masks of Power" is reused for Braylok. Interestingly, in the development of this episode, the character models were going to be completely new! For example here is the first of two images showing the original design of Zem...

This design definitely would have worked indeed. :) The hunched-over, disgusted look for this character is classic!

I can almost hear Alan Oppenheimer's voice when I look at this design. Even though Zem was voiced by 'Erik Gunden' in the episode. Shame they never used this design in any other episode...
