Blackstar's sword?

Here is yet another wonderful Barry Caldwell illustration from the storyboards to the season one He-Man episode "The Return of Orko's Uncle". Once again we see a style of artwork that one would not associate with a Filmation cartoon! While Orko should be the focus on this cropped panning shot, notice that Blackstar's sword appears on the ground! This was going to be Caldwell's nod to the Blackstar cartoon, but sadly the sword was removed at some point during production, probably during the layout stage. Fortunately, there would be other references to Blackstar in the He-Man series...
