    Given that I've been collecting He-Man and She-Ra cels since 1997, I really should start to post in this thread...

    While these are a lovely pair of cels they are not from the transformation sequence...

    The first of Prince Adam is from "Dawn of Dragoon" when he discovers he is unable to transform...and the second is He-Man from "A Beastly Sideshow" when he is spinning Beast Man around...

    Dude, these are AMAZING finds - I've been collecting cels since 1997 - And while I have a great many key moments in the series, I don't have any from the transformation sequence!

    Trust me, I feel your pain when it comes to spending money on He-Man and She-Ra animation art...

    I can say for a FACT that the bottom has now completely dropped out the market...

    Back in the late mid-to-late nineties animation cels were SO hard to come by - I once parted with about $275 just for a random cel of Whiplash walking...simply walking... - The same cel now you could pick up for about $10 - Ouch!

    I was fortunate enough to visit the warehouse in Los Angeles where all the Filmation cels were stored in 2001 and 2005, and from those two visits I managed to pick up all the cels I wanted!

    Wow! ...nobody told me that there is a warehouse with all the great animation stuff from filmnation! ...too bad... so that's the reason why all the good cels are gone!

    btw i would like to see a picture of this warehouse from inside ^^, with all the nice cels. I was wondering if any member of this forum is in possession of some cels from the intro, where adam is talking and then transforms into he-man! I searched for a long time for the original background of grayskull where adam transforms into he-man, but no one out there could help me. I would pay 1000+ USD for it...

    Believe me, some of the storage conditions were AWFUL...I once saw a lovely panning cel from "The Problem With Power" with the foot of a stepladder on it!

    I'll see if I can dig out the ol' photos from 2001...

    I own a few cels from the introduction sequence - Mainly the title and Adam walking into shot for the first time...

    Here's a quick photo I just took...

    Oh no...

    I've seen this photo before; it's from Mark Sheard's collection - He's a lucky fellow! - However, there IS another Prince Adam sequence of him holding the sword out there - The details on the folder for this sequence indicate that this was re-animated for the 1985 batch of episodes, as I had long suspected!

    I've just started to buy some cels myself and I'm happy about this, even if some might disagree. My intention is not to collect a big collection, but just to buy few pieces of history from the animated series I love. The most wanted/popular cels might be long gone from the market, but like in many things, I tend to like things that might not be so popular among the majority, so it's not a big deal for me.

    I don't think anyone is against cels being cheap to purchase - I'm still collecting so I'm VERY happy the price has come down!

    ...It's just hard to believe what I spent on certain cels back in the nineties...

    A bunch of cels from my collection

    OK. Here are some cels from my collection. I love secondary characters so you will find here some villans and heroes from both MOTU and POP episodes.

    I like the young Adam cels. They are from the episode "Battle Cat":

    I've uploaded some more model sheets to my album. Added Kuduk Ungol - The Sorceress' predecessor, and also some vehicles.

    James, do you remember that I told you about that cel of He-Man transformation?! You answered isn't were from the trasnformation sequence but a publicity cel

    One thing to always be on the lookout for is animation cels from DELETED SCENES...

    I have quite a few cels that are from scenes left on the cutting room floor - They're easy to spot; you just have to know the series inside out!

    I posted these two on my Blog recently...



    This second one is not a cel; it is line art from a deleted scene that I colored...but you get the idea...
