Wow! This is amazing! Such fascinating stuff. It's crazy to think how much of what many think of as the negatives for the NA series (the humor, bumbling Skeletor and even the scientists!) appears to have come from Mattel as part of this pitch!
The live action things sounds insane and probably would have been terrible, but it's kind of a fun idea. I wonder what the thinking behind that was?
Such cool info! Thanks so much for sharing!
