    Leoghan: I like that idea about the egg and dying before it hatches.

    Btw, the new deadline has been set for HALLOWEEEN!

    And I've spoken with some of the other artists, and there should be a few more entries on its way.

    I have recently been asked by a few artists for more time to complete their entries, and since there are so few entries here, I have decided to post-pone the deadline. (again)

    NEW DEADLINE IS MONDAY, KIDS!!

    Well, as you can see in the poll, the 3 Towers of Eternia won...

    But I gotta' be frank with you lads, I think it'll be like this challenge all over again, wherein it becomes frighteningly obvious that even tho there's obviously fans of the playsets, not very many of those fans are actually artists, and interested in taking a stab at them.

    So I'm actually a bit hesitant to do it, but it did win, so it'll have to be done.

    That's why I asked in the 1st place Pred ole' buddy..
    I have a feeling characters are definately the preference over playsets so I was wondering if you were going to bend the rules...
    I think artists here are fans of the playsets, just not maybe fans of drawing the playsets as much as they enjoy recreating the characters...

    But it's all good!!

    I'd maybe take a crack at the Dream Mistress or NA Teela myself.

    You know... I think you've put the pin on the head here. I think I'm going to have to put down that ironed fist I talked about when I took the "job".

    Next challenge will be NA Teela folks!! The 3 Towers are on hold until further notice, or when Monikasvo takes over the challenge once more. ; )

    We're always glad to have ya' Jazyl! Great entry! I think it's actually my favourite so far. Definitely a contender.

    Now... if we could just get 3 certain artists to finish their artwork, that would be nice...

    I have to admit, The Talon Fighter was one of my fave vehicles as a kid because of the stuff like the record it came with, plus it seemed to be the ultimate vehicle!!

    I also loved the Battle Ram, Attack Trak, Spydor, Bashasaurus, etc...

    great entries everyone--i like 2-bad's the best so far.

    sorry about the delay, but here's my entry:




    ***EDIT***
    here are my revised and expanded notes/background info:

    Woof, there's a lot to cover here, so I'm going bullet-point:
    • The Talon Fighter is very close to the design of the original toy, but I gave it room for four (the toy seated two, but I seem to recall that it could carry more passengers in the classic cartoon--I may be wrong).

    • General notes on all Talon Fighters shown--the original toy had a handle, like a gun, so that kids could hold the Talon Fighter... um... like a gun, I guess. I replaced this "handle" with a tail section to make the fighter even more bird-like. I gave the legs, feet, and claws a more mechanized design, as I imagined them being used in combat, almost like a real bird of prey, thus making the name Talon Fighter even more appropriate. The clawed limbs can also be used to let the vehicles walk or climb. And I added racing stripes, which I feel are pretty sharp.

    • The Point Dread playset was a single tower, and source material from the era indicated that it was located on an island. I decided to portray Point dread as an entire outpost, used as a base of operations for the Talon Fighter (more on that below, in my in-fiction background material).

    • The Prototype XTF-1's are based on the Monogram model kit version of the Talon Fighter. The box depicted the Talon Fighter in yellow and scarlet, but photos I've seen of the model itself have the colors reversed, hence the two versions shown. As far as changes, I added visible engine units, with air intakes, and gave the cockpit a two-seat configuration like something you might see in a military helicopter.

    • The TF-2 variations are all pretty self-explanatory. The standard version of the TF-2 has a small radar dish, not so different from the original Talon Fighter, while the Long Range Scout (TF-2LR) has a large dish, inspired by real life AWAC systems. Extrapolating from the colors of Man-At-Arms's uniform and the Wind Raider, I deducted that green/yellow/orange must be Eternian military colors--thus the coloring of the basic TF-2 model depicts "standard issue" coloration. The other TF-2 variations are depicted in colors from specific squadrons. Of particular note--the XTF-2E is colored to resemble either Zoar or the Sorceress.

    Now, how about some in-depth, in-fiction info?

    * * *

    Point Dread: In the distant days of King Grayskull, the children of Zoar the falcon god flew freely in the sky. These giant birds of prey were friends to good, and enemies of evil. Point Dread, was originally a meeting place for the children of Zoar and their humanoid allies, an outpost against the forces of evil. Today, Point Dread has been reclaimed by a small force commanded by Man-At-Arms, once again establishing an outpost against the many dangers that threaten Eternia. The giant perches where Zoar's brood once roosted are now occupied by squadrons of Talon Fighters.

    Talon Fighter: Talon, Zoar's youngest child, was an ally and close friend of King Grayskull. He was widely known for his bravery, but also for his stubborn recklessness. Disobeying his father's warnings of caution, Talon fell in battle, mortally wounded. Zoar would not heal his foolhardy and arrogant son, so King Grayskull ordered his followers to rebuild Talon's body from sacred metal that had fallen from the skies. Even in his new form as the Talon Fighter, the son of Zoar was willful and reckless--only his good friend King Grayskull could calm him and fly him into battle. In the modern age, only He-Man can pilot the Talon Fighter, due to his genetic lineage to King Grayskull.

    Talon, the Son of Zoar Reborn: With He-Man missing, and Eternia in dire need of heroes, Zoar has decided to give his brash son another chance to prove himself. Talon's consciousness has been fully restored, and he can shapeshift freely between the the shape of the Talon Fighter and his new humanoid form.

    Prototype XTF-1 (Experimental Twin-Seat Fighter): Charged with fortifying Eternian defenses in the face of invasion, Man-At-Arms has been researching new technologies from Point Dread. Seeking to duplicate the awesome power of the Talon Fighter in a more controllable form, Man-At-Arms and his team of scientists and engineers created the XTF-1. Mass-production of the XTF-1 was scrapped, but its creation did eventually lead to the development of the TF-2 series. Only two XTF-1's are in existence, and are still used on a limited basis. The XTF-1 has speed and firepower comparable to the original Talon Fighter, but has slightly weaker armor, reduced maneuverability, and poor fuel efficiency.

    TF-2 Series (Mass Production Single-Seat Fighters): With the help of newly discovered partial blueprints from the original Talon Fighter, and the Sorceress's arcane knowledge, Man-At-Arms has successfully perfected a Talon Fighter design suitable for mass production. Faster, and drastically smaller, the TF-2 series are invaluable in the aerial defense of Eternia against the forces of evil. Several variations have arisen for specific uses, including the TF-2LR (Long Range Scout Fighter), and the TF-2H (Heavy Assault Fighter).

    XTF-2E (Elite Space Fighter): Still considered to be somewhat experimental, though already approved for field use and eventual mass-production, the XTF-2E is the crowning achievement of Man-At-Arms's Talon Fighter program. Capable of space flight, and equipped with the latest in hi-tech armaments, only 15 XTF-2E's are in existence. Talon Fighter pilots are already regarded as elite amongst the Eternian military, and the pilots of the XTF-2E are regarded as the elite among the elite. Historians may also note that while Man-At-Arms and the Sorceress had begun to slowly rebuild their personal relationship during the development of the TF-2, it was during the development of the Elite Space Fighter that the two finally rekindled their long dormant romance.
