Oh gosh, time to recollect.
I remember Emil and I talked about that, but I've since forgotten exactly which statue is what.
It's been a long time!
My memory on all the little details isn't so good unless I go back and look at the art, and notes, etc.
It was just more violent, especially the intro.
They were so used to the new MYP level of violence that they forgot how violent some of the past MOTU had been back in the early 80s.
But we intended to use it sparingly.
We had no desire to actually make all of MOTU a violent story.
I was perfectly fine with the level of violence in the comics. I cannot stand fan stuff where the characters keep raping and slashing each other just to please a so-called mature audience. But stuff like Tri-Klops stabbing He-Man's leg was enough to bring the message without exaggerarting the "blood level".
"Why's Dragstor riding on Night Stalker?" "Cause he can."
BY THE POWER OF GREYSTONE! I am the power.
What about the VOL 2 trade version?
The gifts keep on coming! And this time, we're starting a special segment about the 200x comic called Did You Know?
Every once in a while, we'll post this segment on the main page where we reveal cool concepts for the comic that you never knew about.
And what better way to kick this first segment off than with a special Video Blog of Evil from our friend Unemployed Skeletor!
Check it out below to hear secrets revealed about the 200x comic!
It may take a few minutes to load after clicking the play button in the middle of the video, depending on your connection.
And please forgive Unemployed Skeletor for saying "Mer-Man" instead of "Man-at-Arms" at one point. He has his minions on his mind.
Also I would really like to know all the comic-revelations made in Roast Gooble Dinner -podcast, because they are better explained in the show actually.
Like the part where Emiliano talks, that it was his own notion, that Kronis would be time-traveler. While a cool piece of information, I think it needs better description, so
as not to be thought as something specifically planned for comic-verse.
This example is precisely that. In episode18, about 53:00min time, Emiliano states that the part about Kronis being a space mutant, sent in time, was his own personal view to MOTU.
It is never said to have been anything that was planned for comic or put forward as that.
So in that sense, if you include this information-tidbit into this thread that is about the 2002-2004 comic; I would have hoped a better way of describing this particular piece of information, since it is not one of those tidbits that Emiliano and Val were trying to implement to the comic.
There may also have been something about it in the Toyfair article, but I cant remember for sure.

The info about Kronis in this "Collected Info About the Comic" thread predates what was mentioned on RGD. Here's the thread from October 2009 where potential comic plans were discussed.
Telkan2 had asked if I could keep him posted on any RGD-referenced comic plans, so (as far as I know) the only things he has incorporated from RGD were the tidbits that I sent along. I made sure to only send him the things that were specifically mentioned as being planned for the comic (such as the Teela/Green Goddess info, Battle Cat talking, The Great Forge, etc.) If the words "planned for the comic" were not used, then the info was not sent. Therefore, nothing in the Kronis entry came directly from RGD. It already existed in this thread prior to being elaborated upon in that episode. Hope that helps.

That is great. Soo now I'm confused; Emiliano has mentioned the Kronis being sent from future as part of his idea, and that they would have played NA-stories in the comic, but in RGD he makes a clear mentioning that it is only his own personal view.Telkan2 had asked if I could keep him posted on any RGD-referenced comic plans, so (as far as I know) the only things he has incorporated from RGD were the tidbits that I sent along.

Where does the line go between Emiliano's own view to MOTU, and what would have ended up on the comic? LOL.
I'll try to clarify
That was an idea I had before the comic. Let's put it in the "Homecoming" continuity
I don't think we could have used this idea in the comic because TJ origin was different in Icons of Evil.
But, yeah, maybe it could have been included too. But in my idea, this was also connected to Roboto's origin and that changed quited a bit from Filmation's cartoon.
Wow, I've missed quite a few posts apparently! Whoops! Thanks to Emiliano, Penny Dreadful and 13977 for help in clearing up the confusion in my absence. Though it has been cleared up at this point, as the original poster it would be remiss of me not to highlight the special note Emiliano asked me to incorporate in the first post which read:
No worries Telkan2.
Emiliano you mentioned in a proposed Masters of the Universe / Thundercats crossover there would have been a meeting between the Qadians and Thundarian survivors. Did you have any ideas in mind for the plot/story for this crossover?
I've always wondered what plans you guys had for the Cosmic Enforcers in the comics and what role they would play in the grand scheme. In the ongoing series in the issue where the sorceress looks into Evil Lynn's mind to see what is going on and gets the vision of all the stuff we see some cosmic enforcers. I know Emiliano has said that two page spread gave a lot of clues to their overall story arc ideas so I figure the cosmic enforcers would play a major role. Also in the Rise of the Snake Men comics during Hsss's battle with Zodak I think Hssss mocks zodak saying something like he isn't a true cosmic enforcer.
