Skeletor is spying on Man-At-Arms with King Hiss, Snake Face, and Sssqueeze. Man-At-Arms is introducing Rotar, a soldier whom he saved from death with the help of his new gyro machine. Skeletor resolves to build an army of robot soldiers with the machine to battle Hordak.
Skeletor, in the Fright Fighter, captures the machine as well as Rotar when Sssqueeze holds Rotar in place while Snake Face turns him to stone. Skeletor releases Rotar in his Arena of Doom to fight Twistoid, the first of his new robot warriors.
Rotar uses Sssqueeze's arms to tangle up and defeat Twistoid. Sssqueeze, Snake Face, Rattlor, and Tung Lashor then attack him. Suddenly He-Man bursts through in the Gyrattacker (a prototype vehicle, see Related Pages link) and both he and Rotar defeat the villains. Taking the gyro machine with them, they return to the palace.
1987, Series 6.
