    Lost MOTU Commercial with original animation!

    Hey, fellow He-Fans!

    Check out these links : These are french MOTU TV commercials for Castle Grayskull and the Attak-Trak from 1983. It features the "lost" animated cartoon made by Filmation. Simply awesome!
    Also, you'll notice the background music, straight from the Blackstar TV show!

    Enjoy!

    Oh wow, that's pretty kick-ass!

    I remember seeing some of the cels from (I think it was) Busta Toon's collection, but I've never actually seen the animation/commercial.

    How exciting.

    Here's a little tidbit that you guys might or might not love!

    On the animated scenes, notice Teela's spear-staff when she threw it at He-man to save him from a dire fate?

    Well, I just came from a comic book store and I bought a DCUC Hawkgirl figure and the spear that she came with resembles the same staff that Teela possesses from that scene! One can just paint Hawkgirl's spear in golden color and you have an instant classic MOTUClassic Teela accesory!

    Just how cool is that!?!

    Yeah, someone please find that too.

    It's too bad there's not a lost episode done in this style.

    Hey John!

    I'll keep looking. I remember the commercial you're talking about... actually, I think it was the very first one, featuring only the figures and their "power punch" mechanism. It had a longer animated sequence and Battle Cat was in it.

    The french INA (which is our National Audiovisual Archives Institute) recently added many commercial from the last 40 years in great quality on their website www.ina.fr... there are TONS of vintage toys commercials for many brands... you'll spend hours in their website watching those previously lost footages.

    For MOTU, just type "Maitres Univers" in the search box, and you'll get about 25 differents MOTU commercials!

    Cool commercials! Thanks for putting them up!

    Just imagine if Filmation had a comparable budget between the production of the commercial's animation and the tv series...

    FINALLY I GET TO SEE PART OF THE FIRST FILMATION ANIMATED HE-MAN!!!!

    (a topic which has been discussed before)
    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...ight=filmation

    Thank you very much for this link!
    This is one of those RARE things we've heard about, but never truely witnessed, except for them animation-cel images provided by Busta Toons.



    Now if only we could see the parts where He-Man uses his shield, and Battlecat appears.







    .
    .
    .
    .

    .
    I can't figure out, how to save the video for my own computer.
