He-Man - The Shaping Staff - COMMENTARY

During dinner at the Royal Palace Orko prepares to entertain King Randor, Queen Marlena, Prince Adam, Man-At-Arms, and Teela. Proceedings are interrupted when a beautiful female magician calling herself Magestra appears wishing to entertain them with her wondrous illusions. After a few moments of magic she presents the Cabinet of Wonders, which an intrigued King Randor volunteers to step into. When the door to the cabinet opens King Randor has vanished, prompting shock and horror from those gathered. Seconds later, King Randor exits the cabinet, praises Magestra's talent, and invites her to stay overnight in the palace.

Orko becomes suspicious and discovers in the dungeons that Magestra and the King are actually Evil-Lyn and Beast Man in disguise. Evil-Lyn reveals to the real imprisoned King that she is now in possession of the Shaping Staff, an incredibly powerful weapon. Evil-Lyn uses the staff to transform the King into a goat, and Orko into a cricket. Orko manages to warn Prince Adam and Cringer of the situation, and as He-Man and Battle Cat they battle the villains, with Man-At-Arms and Teela joining the skirmish. Evil-Lyn uses the power of the Shaping Staff once more and transforms Teela into a frog and He-Man into a gold statue.

Outside Castle Grayskull Skeletor creates an evil double of He-Man which he dubs Faker. Faker successfully tricks the Sorceress into appear outside of the castle, where she is immediately overpowered by Evil-Lyn. He-Man manages to break free from his statue form and battles Faker, with the villainous double falling into the abyss that surrounds Castle Grayskull. He-Man breaks the Shaping Staff and the villains hurriedly depart.
