    Iceman and Gbagok's Return to Anwat Gar

    Iceman and I have been planning the first of several Masters of the Universe movie ideas, all of them seen as sequels to Season 2 of the animated series. These movies would introduce characters and ideas that the TV show never got a chance to explore. For this project, we focused on Sy-Klone and Anwat Gar. He and I will be posting the story in phases because believe it or not we still have more pictures we haven't finished painting. But we have let this teasing go on long enough.


    Our story begins with Sy-Klone after the final battle with King Hsss and Serpos. As the other Masters celebrate their victory, Sy-Klone finds himself restless. He thinks a flight through the Mystic mountains will relieve him of this disquiet, but on the way he encounters a strange creature made of wind. It sings to him, and calls him by name. He follows it, and it lures him half way across Eternia to a lone shrine on his island homeland of Anwat Gar. There, the creature takes the form of a woman. She reveals that she too is a native of Anwat Gar who has been sleeping these long centuries. The destruction of the Legacy Stones awakened her, and she has watched Sy-Klone, the last ember of their once mighty kingdom, with great interest.


    "You have forgotten your way, Warrior of the Wind," she tells him. "You were supposed to guard the Legacy Stones."

    "I have not forgotten," he says sadly. "The Legacy Stones were destroyed to keep them out of evil hands. I fight with the Masters to protect all of Eternia. There is nothing left for me in Anwat Gar."


    The Woman of Wind laughs at him playfully and begins to fade away. "Ah but there is, Wind Warrior. You guarded only two of the stones, but there remains the third and most powerful of them all. Find it Sy-Klone, as you were meant to in the beginning." When she disappears, Sy-Klone is awestruck. Could there still be a third Legacy Stone on Anwat Gar? He decides to search every inch of his old home until he finds it.

    Back in Eternos, Prince Adam is summoned to Grayskull by the Sorceress. She tells him that once more she has seen visions of a great darkness coming from the lost kingdom of Anwat Gar, only this time she knows that the threat does not stem from the machinations of Skeletor. No, this time it is one of Adam's own allies who will unleash the danger. Adam turns into He-Man and hurries to Anwat Gar with Man-At-Arms and Battle Cat. They find Sy-Klone uncovering a hidden passageway in one of Anwat Gar's mountains. They try to speak to him, but he he will not listen. He is sure the Stone exists, and that it is his duty to protect it, the last talisman of his homeland. He-Man and Man-At-Arms follow him into the dark caves beneath the island. There, they find a huge cavern full of unmoving stone soldiers. Above them, on a floating alter of rock lies a glowing stone, the last of the Legacy Stones.

    "It's dangerous," He-Man tells Sy-Klone. "The Sorceress warned us--"

    "No," Sy-Klone yells, sounding very different from his usually calm self. "I will not let you destroy this stone. It is part of me. You took from me my one true purpose when you destroyed the other stones. I will not let you take this from me as well." He fights them, forcing them to retreat while he flies toward the stone. He-Man warns Sy-Klone to stop, begs him not to force him to hurt him. "We each have our purpose," Sy-Klone realizes. "I did not want to be your enemy, but if this is the only way, then so be it." And with that, he activates the Stone. Green light blinds He-Man momentarily as Sy-Klone and the Stone merge into one.


    Possessed by the Stone, Sy-Klone speaks an ancient spell and the cavern begins to quake. The power of the third Legacy Stone is obviously far greater than its brothers, and the very mountain begins to break apart around them. The stone soldiers begin to glow and move with an unnatural life, and above everything He-Man and Man-At-Arms hear the voice of their former ally before the cavern completely disappears in a blast of light.

    The first thing we see when the debris begins to settle is that He-Man has reverted to Adam. The power unleashed by the Legacy Stone somehow severed his link to Grayskull. He finds Man-At-Arms, Cringer, and himself all surrounded by the stone soldiers. They lead the Eternians to the surface, where they are stunned to see that Anwat Gar has suddenly become a much larger island. Huge ships hover above, and human soldiers stand waiting for the prisoners to emerge. The man leading the army is huge, possessing a malevolent grin and a large golden hand.



    To be Continued...

    Wow, this sounds really promising. The movie poster is very cool, especially He-Man's design looks amazing!

    Edit: Oh, the second post is even better! The shot with the stone warriors...
    And I have to ask: Is Legacy Stone Sy-Klone's design based on / influenced by the repaint pictures?

    Thanks, Irian! Yes, that color scheme comes directly from the toy. Iceman is behind the desgin for Jitsu and his army of stone soldiers, the Terrorcotta Warriors.


    He and I both contributed ideas for He-Man's Anwat Gar armor, which will come into play later in the story obviously.

    I am by no means a writer!! Gbagok pretty much conceived the whole story but we both threw around ideas, added stuff or took stuff out.

    Its pretty much a well collaborated project which started waaaay back in Feb or March; I think; when I tossed a few character designs his way...

    Thanks for all the comments guys! There is more to come!

    Gbagok, I hadn't seen that cavernous warrior pic yet...AWESOME!!

    P.S. Your Legacy Stone Sy-Klone concept is so damn cool it's starting to make me want the repaint! Must resist!
    I'll be getting mine!!

    This is awesome, guys! What little you've given us so far is extremely compelling and I'm eagerly awaiting more.

    But tell us . . . what is this exactly? Will it be fan fiction or some kind of read along book? Or are you actually interested in animating this awesome concept like the ideas being thrown around the toon forum?

    Great stuff!
