Pre-Production Painting:
"Stalking He-Man"
(By Claudio Mazzoli)

This piece of art was part of a batch of pre-production paintings for the film sold on eBay recently. The painting depicts a scene of He-Man and Julie hiding amongst the trees, while an army of Skeletor's troops moves from the city towards them. While this scene does not appear in the film, the He-Man and Julie pairing survives in the scene where He-Man defends her from the "curious quartet". Of interest here is the early take on He-Man's appearance. While the sword is fairly close to what would be seen in the film, He-man's attire looks very much like the vintage "Battle Armor" action figure...
