    Fright Zone Hordak Throne Room Guards?

    I've checked the forums and haven't seen this discussed, but out of sheer curiosity, does anyone know the history of said guards as seen in the episode title credits in certain episodes? Or, more to the point, if there even is a history? Aside from looking cool as the heads (or helmets) resemble an evil reptilian eye with slit pupils, I was always curious if there was some kind of backstory to these guys.

    I don't know if there was a backstory for these guards, Shecky.

    I've never notice the guards in the cartoon. I think they are just in the title card like this one.

    The design looks like a cross between Horde Troopers and some kinda video game suit from the 80's.

    We'll, given no one has really answered this, I guess it's safe to say these guys were probably just filler.

    The Filmation Fright Zone was designed like a Giger painting in places, I always assumed they were some kind of statues maybe

    Has James Eatock seen this? I'd ask him.

    You know what? That should have been obvious to me given he's a guru on all things Filmation MOTU, so I'm slapping myself upside the head for overlooking that.

    I'll shoot him a message, thanks for the tip !

    You're welcome! Hopefully there is something to them because it is a truly cool design.

    My guess is they aren't characters as much as concepts that were abandonned. They only appear in that title card.
