A change in the transformation #2

I am always fascinated by the fact that the Adora to She-Ra transformation sequence was altered after the first five episodes. Surprisingly, it is something that not too many people have noticed over the years. In these two images below you can see that the first image from "She-Ra Unchained" features She-Ra stood at Castle Grayskull without the jaw-bridge. In the second image from "Duel at Devlan" you can see that the jaw-bridge is now firmly in place. What amazes me is that by deciding to insert the jaw-bridge into the transformation they would have had to re-animate this entire complicated sequence of special effects-laded animation!

That was always a cool shade of blue used for the painted drawbridge. I prefer the colors from the image on the right because they appear brighter and richer ... She-Ra's hair borders on strawberry blond in that image, too. :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

Unlike the previous (later?) image of the transformation change, I prefer the darker image here--She-Ra (and the fx) look more vibrant, and everything really pops, despite being so dark.
