Positioning the mirror.

The Ladybird book "Shadow Weaver's Magic Mirror" features an extremely rare appearance by Hordak's Horde Troopers. This illustration would be one of the few times that Robin Davies drew these characters. It is worth noting that his style seems to alter for the Horde Troopers, giving them black areas of shading, something he would rarely do in his illustrations on the She-Ra books. It is even more evident as Hordak and Shadow Weaver are drawn in his more traditional style...

Hordak almost looks like he is in the pose for when he transforms into his various machine forms, as seen in the cartoon. :) What a wicked looking mirror! Imagine if that was the design for the mirror used in the "He Ain't Heavy" episode? :) Fantastic variety of colors featured here!
Thanks for reading! God Bless...
