His eyes shift...

Here are a couple of lovely panels by storyboard artist Rich Chidlaw from the season one He-Man episode "The Region of Ice" showing Man-At-Arms. One of the interesting things to note is that in blue pencil, aside from the rough illustration below the final line art, Rich also wrote the dialogue under each of his panels. Sadly, in the actual episode Filmation did not use this awesomely expressive close-up; instead they opted for a full body shot with a slow truck-in...

What a coincidence as I watched this episode a couple of weeks ago and thought that this was one of the most effective shots in the episode! :) This view of Man-At-Arms looks amazing here and would have translated perfectly to the cartoon! The actual footage is still very good, as he really looks "on guard." :)
