GIANT Picture Book (Heroic Warriors) illustration #34

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 two pages focusing on King Randor and Queen Marlena. Here we see a fantastic illustration heavily showcasing the regalness found in the Royal Palace. I love the moment shared by King Randor and Queen Marlena in this piece, as well as both Prince Adam and Teela sporting alternative costumes for what appears to be a very royal occasion! We should ask, who is Man-At-Arms flirting with?

The woman standing next to Man-At-Arms reminds me of Belle from "Beauty and the Beast." :) Awww, even the guards have lovely ladies to dance with! Poor Orko looks so lonely on the dance floor ... Where's Dree Elle?! :)

Who is MAA flirting with? And why didn't he feel the need for a change of clothes for the occasion?
