|Captain Glenn sketch card by Taylor Lymbery|
Today's deviation is Captain Glenn! Captain Glenn, or Queen Marlena in a space suit. Yes, they are one and the same. Recently, Mattel put out an action figure in the Masters of the Universe classics line that has interchangeable suits and heads. It's a really cool figure. I do have this toy and I have her set up in her space fairing outfit harking back to her filmation days (although her space suit in the original cartoon is white). One big feature with this figure is the fact that she has the ever wonderful trooper rifle that is modeled after Skeletor's Troops' guns in the Motion picture! Squeel! Overall, I like the Queen, but I'm not a gigantic fan of her...until we get into the Modern 200X series. I do feel that the Masters of the Universe writers of that series actually gave her more of a purpose than being the mother of Adam and Adora, and wife to Randor. She councils Randor and Man-At-Arms several times keeping the throne of Eternia at peace within the palace. In one episode, she is stranded in a far off land that has a maze of caves. She is being tracked by Snake men and defends and holds her own against her assailants until Randor gets to her and helps her run off the rest of the snake men. I just don't feel that she has the same treatment in the original series. I might be wrong. Also, I really like her armor in the 200X series. I don't remember her having armor at all in the original series. Now, I haven't watched the original series as much as I have the 200X series, but that's just me. Oh, maybe Mattel will make a Queen Marlena in her 200X armor! Just title her a Battlefield Queen Marlena. If they do, they should know that they will have at least one buyer; me!

Now, I'm going to have a bunch of these sketch cards available at the Dallas Comic Con. I'll be selling them for $10. I am also opening commissions of sketch cards. They will also be $10 + shipping and handling which will be $6 in the continental United States of America. I'll have to get a quote for any territories outside of that. I will also open up my colored page line drawings for commissions. Same price as the sketch cards, but I'll have to check on the shipping (due to the difference in size). If you want to see what I mean by colored sheet drawing, go here. If you want a sketch card, send me an e-mail to email@example.com. Name your character and we will go from there.
