Heroic Fan ART Mod!
PART 2: TRI-KLOPS, TRAP-JAW, ZODAC, TALLSTAR...MOTU ORIGINS Art Cards!!
Here's "Part 2" of the 10-Part MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: "ORIGINS" Art Card Collection by Jafaristew! The project started off with the unpublished Whitman Origin characters as the basis, & before I knew it, I expanded the universe "art card idea" to include 50 characters total for the 30th Anniversary of Masters Of The Universe! Next up is the 1st of the set to include mostly "non-Whitman Origin Comic characters," this time with influence from various sources such as the Mark Texeira mini-comics, original card 8-back, & prototypes!
TRI-KLOPS: based on his appearance in the Mark Texeira run, most importantly "The Terror Of Tri-Klops!!" This was always my favorite appearance of Tri-Klops as the unbeatable bounty-hunter, I dedicate this one to my brother PoweredConvoy!
X-MAN (aka TRAP-JAW): based on his appearance in the Mark Texeira comic "The Menace Of Trap-Jaw!!" I have always loved this comic & I made sure to power X-Man (one of Trap-Jaw's original names) up with the "Warrior Ring!"
ZODAC: based on his appearance from the 8-backs & "The Power Of Point Dread" record book, where he appeared to have white monster feet...I always loved that coloration as a kid & it was my 1st impression of a figure that I very much wanted, the mighty Zodac!
TALLSTAR: She is based on the original 80's prototype figure mixed with my own ideas about the character, kind of gives her a circus meets goth vibe... & in this art fanon , she is the last her kind!
DEMON(S): These appear in the unpublished Whitman Origin Comic as Skeletor's main devoted lackey's, & they also make appearances (with a slightly different look) in the Mark Texeira mini-comic version of "The Power Of Point Dread" as Skeletor's army!
Special thanks to my brother Brian for all of the feedback & advice, & to my brother Randy for his enthusiasm! Part 3 should be up before the end of the year, & parts 4-10 coming in 2013!!
