PART 2: TRI-KLOPS, TRAP-JAW, ZODAC, TALLSTAR...MOTU ORIGINS Art Cards!!
Here's "Part 2" of the 10-Part MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: "ORIGINS" Art Card Collection by Jafaristew! The project started off with the unpublished Whitman Origin characters as the basis, & before I knew it, I expanded the universe "art card idea" to include 50 characters total for the 30th Anniversary of Masters Of The Universe! :tjlol: Next up is the 1st of the set to include mostly "non-Whitman Origin Comic characters," this time with influence from various sources such as the Mark Texeira mini-comics, original card 8-back, & prototypes!
TRI-KLOPS: based on his appearance in the Mark Texeira run, most importantly "The Terror Of Tri-Klops!!" This was always my favorite appearance of Tri-Klops as the unbeatable bounty-hunter, I dedicate this one to my brother PoweredConvoy!
X-MAN (aka TRAP-JAW): based on his appearance in the Mark Texeira comic "The Menace Of Trap-Jaw!!" I have always loved this comic & I made sure to power X-Man (one of Trap-Jaw's original names) up with the "Warrior Ring!"
ZODAC: based on his appearance from the 8-backs & "The Power Of Point Dread" record book, where he appeared to have white monster feet...I always loved that coloration as a kid & it was my 1st impression of a figure that I very much wanted, the mighty Zodac!
TALLSTAR: She is based on the original 80's prototype figure mixed with my own ideas about the character, kind of gives her a circus meets goth vibe... & in this art fanon :shlol:, she is the last her kind!
DEMON(S): These appear in the unpublished Whitman Origin Comic as Skeletor's main devoted lackey's, & they also make appearances (with a slightly different look) in the Mark Texeira mini-comic version of "The Power Of Point Dread" as Skeletor's army!
Special thanks to my brother Brian for all of the feedback & advice, & to my brother Randy for his enthusiasm! Part 3 should be up before the end of the year, & parts 4-10 coming in 2013!!
