Coloring book #24 - Evil controls the Talon Fighter!

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, the final showcased illustration from this particular coloring book, we see He-Man once again attacked in front of Castle Grayskull from high up; this time from Skeletor piloting the Talon Fighter. This is of course based upon the cover of the minicomic "The Power Of... Point Dread!" Is it me, or does it appear that Skeletor is wearing a Prince Adam-like jacket?!

Ha, ha! :) That's true, plus it looks like Skeletor's blast, which landed in front of He-Man, instead of striking his shield, is about to force poor He-Man to fall backwards!
