Coloring book #22 - Toy Attak Trak.

During the eighties there were many Masters of the Universe coloring books, all of which featured a variety of artwork, with varying degrees of quality. Some artists put in a great level of detail, other artists simply copied model sheets, and some artists were just plain questionable. There were a batch of illustrations by one particular unnamed artist that I have a great affection for, mainly because the style is close to the cartoon, but bold enough to be identifiable as the artist's own! These images also showcased some pretty impressive scenes that I personally wish could have been seen in the Filmation series. In this illustration we see He-Man piloting a toy accurate depiction of the Attak Trak. It is always nice to see the Attak Trak illustrated in the style of the cartoon, as it only appeared once in the series. And even then it was not completely accurate to the design of the toy.

This is true. :) Uh oh ... From the direction that the Attak Trak is going, especially from looking at the front wheel, it looks like He-Man is about to take a fall!
