GIANT Picture Book (Heroic Warriors) illustration #36

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 King Randor and Queen Marlena, resized for you to enjoy! Although their thrones are not as impressive as they are in the Filmation cartoon, I absolutely love the detail in this illustration. Fred Carrillo had a knack for making the royal couple looking incredibly regal and important.

Queen Marlena's hairstyle looks great. :) These two look so content, I can't help but think of them wanting to sit outdoors on a porch swing!

Very nice, but I did prefer MYP's redesign of them looking like they had a bit more balls and battle potential rather than just looking stereotypically regal.
