    Did you know about the SB He-Man VS SB Skeletor 2-pack? (w/ a comic too!)

    Well, it never happened... that's why you don't know about it.
    There was actually going to be a Target 2-pack featuring everyone's two favorite love-to-hate variants: Smash Blade He-Man and Spin Blade Skeletor.

    It's probably for the best this 2-pack never happened, given how those two figures plagued toy isles for nearly a year, and probably contributed to the downfall of the new toys.

    But, what was going to make this 2-pack special was an exclusive comic.
    Much like the previous Target 2-pack with the comic, this one was going to have a full-sized comic with a 10 page story that told the origin of these two figures in a mini-comic style stand-alone story.

    The comic was actually written, pencilled, colored, lettered... the whole kit and kaboodle.
    I actually have it, and had forgotten about the thing until Robert Kirkman made mention of it to me lately.

    It was written & lettered by Robert Kirkman,
    pencilled by Kevin Sharpe,
    colored by Brian Buccellato and Steve Cobb,
    with a cover by Emiliano Santalucia w/ colors from myself.

    It was done very quickly, as the 2-pack sprung up out of no where.
    I think we had to do the whole thing in 2 weeks.
    Emiliano was able to do the cover, but because he was busy on the actual comic series, he couldn't do the interiors (much to his disappointment).
    We still managed to get it all done, but at the last minute, the 2-pack never happened and the comic never went anywhere after it was finished.

    We're considering putting it online for you all to check out.
    Is it something you'd like to see?
    We can't guarantee we'll get it up any time soon, if at all. but I'm curious who might be interested.

    And here's hoping for the return of Power-Con!

    PLEASE PUT THAT ONLINE VAL!
    I would love to see the story & art and give those 2 figures some extra dazzle by having a little something special to go with them!
    I think it would be a real treat for all the fans!
    I would say nearly all of us have the Smash-Blade/Spin-Blade duo. This comic would give them some more signifigance in the Masters history (instead of just being the 2 guys that there was too much of) ... If we got to see a story that was planned for them, it would give them some new life and depth in our collections!

    I wonder if posting the comic will raise the demand for these two figures.

    I was thinking the same thing! Now that there's an actual reason for the SB He-Man & Skelly, will everyone want to own one? I think the last KB I was at still had about a dozen of each.

    AS for the comic, easy answer: YES! Gimme, gimme, gimme!

    Comic?! HELL YES! Heck, and as much as I hated the two figures, I would even love to see what the packaging would have looked like. I'm a sucker for these sorts of things. That, plus I really dug the comics that came with the Gameboy game and the other Target 2-pack.
    It's too bad this two-pack never saw the light of day- that is, if they were exclusive to Target. Sort of like how Wolf and Snake Armor He-Man and Skelly were exclusive to TRU, as opposed to being single-carded figures taking up too much peg space.

    I'd like to see it. By the way, there is still a Kaybee near me that has SB He-Man on the shelf. Probably at least 5.

    DEFINATELY! Let's see it!

    You playing with us aren't ya?

    Of course the comic would be most fascinating to see, like all origin-stories. Especially if the thing was finished it would make a great addition to MotU-mythology of todays.
