Hey Busta toons, Why does Stratos have the Sword of Power in that story? That sound like a story I should be reading. Plus could we get more details on the Iron Master?
As for Teela, love that the UK gave power to Teela's staff, I myself say that her Staff of Ka(as it is called now) shots lasers from its eyes because M@A installed a laser module in the head of the Staff as well as it has it's magic tracking powers.
Busta, interesting info on Teela's staff. She-Ra's leaping must have become stock animation because I remember seeing it in several episodes that I enjoyed. It's a great piece of animation.
Do you happen to have any information on why The Sorceress runs in "The Taking of Grayskull?"
There's a pause between seeing the other characters run followed by the Sorceress. I thought for sure the animators would cut away and have the Sorceress simply be outside, but instead we're treated to seeing her dash outside of Grayskull after Skeletor. I always wondered about what lead to that decision since it seems like a rather unnecessary bit of animation.
RIP Andy Conrad.
I really enjoy your blog entries!

Oh and I do enjoy your blog posts here on the .org!
love the pics of the sorceress. Bruce Timm knows how to draw women really hot!/
also cool to see a lot more info on the shows and minis this time around. Hope we get some more from the "Powers of Grayskull" storyline?
That Faker image from 0041 brought a forgotten childhood memory rushing back and I thank you for that! Hadn't thought about that book for years!
Also Happy Birthday Busta Toons as of the time of this post.
I remember when it was published seeing an advert for that UK Special issue in the regular fortnightly magazine and wanted it so bad. Something about the cover really captured my imagination, but I never got it for what ever reason. It has always eluded my on eBay as well and I only recently got to read it when I noticed it had been put up on the org publishing section. I wish the UK magazine section on the org was complete so I could read the few issues I'm missing.
I love this pic of Stratos & Teela...
It reminds me so much of Superman & Lois Lane...
That is an awesome picture of Teela and Stratos, but I'm a little worried that her neck looks uncomfortable. lol
RIP Andy Conrad.
Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.
Nice blogs as always Busta, the evil Trollans is an interesting idea.
I'd like to see and know more about the evil Trollans. You mentioned the book has a few, can we see the others please? Is there some significance to the X logos on their robes?
