GIANT Picture Book (Heroic Warriors) illustration #30

Golden Book published a great deal of Masters of the Universe material during the eighties. Two of the most notable and yet rarely seen books are the Giant Picture Books; oversized quality publications printed on thick quality paper featuring artwork by Fred Carrillo. One book focused on the Heroic Warriors, whilst the other focused on the Evil Warriors. Here I present, from the Heroic Warriors book, the second of the two black and white illustrations focusing on the transformation sequence, resized for you to enjoy! In this piece we see that Battle Cat has been illustrated to look a great deal like the Filmation model sheet.

That's true! This illustration also reminds me of footage of Battle Cat roaring at the Manticore in one shot from "Orko's Favorite Uncle." :) Once again, I really like the "rocky" look of the text! Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)
