A pin-up of Roboto, the same as the one in issue #27

story 2: "The Fall of Eternos City"
Skeletor, King Hiss and Hordak all join together to
begin the ultimate attack on Eternos City. But first
they have to get He-Man out of the city! The next day,
at the palace, Man-At-Arms receives a call from Planet
Teekay, the planet of plants. Matmos Mount has blown
up once again, and they need He-Man's help! Together
with Sy-Klone, He-Man and Man-At-Arms go to Teekay...
but instantly they find they have been tricked- their
teleportation machine explodes, and the planet is totally
peaceful! Back on Eternia, now that He-Man has left
the city, Skeletor, King Hiss, and the whole of their
armies launch their attack on Eternos. The people of
the city are evacuated through underground escape tunnels,
as the heroic warriors attempt in vain to defend the
city. Meanwhile, on Teekay, the plants have recognised
He-Man from the last time he was on the planet, and
so He-Man asks for their help in building a new machine
to teleport them home. But the plants say that the last
machines on Teekay were destroyed thousands of years
ago in a war with the humans. So the plants transfer
their thoughts to one another, and conduct a planet-wide
search for any trace of machinery. Eventually, they
find a fallout shelter- an old building that was once
used by the humans who blew themselves up! The plants
form a living passageway to lead the heroes to the fallout
shelter- but as He-Man, Sy-Klone, and Man-At-Arms travel
there, they fall into a trap- and find themselves prisoners
of underground creatures, human-like but different in
appearance! The leader of these people tells them that
they will be executed if they have been working with
the plants, whom they believe to be evil. But He-Man
explains to them the true story, and how the plants
believe the humans are evil- and the leader is astounded
that maybe things aren't as bad as they have seemed
for the past centuries! He-Man suggests to the people
that he could move them to a new home on Eternia if
they help them rebuild the teleporter. Together they
reconstruct the machine, and teleport back to Eternia.
But they get the shock of their lives when they see
tht Eternos city has been destroyed! They find Hordak,
Skeletor, and King Hiss, now totally confident that
they will conquer Eternia! They escape, leaving the
heroes convinced that their planet is doomed. But then,
the heroic warriors appear through their underground
hideout, and Fisto suggests they rebuild the city so
Skeletor's victory will have been in vain. The people
from Teekay suggest that they could help them rebuild
the city so it looks even better, as they are skilled
builders. So they help the heroic warriors build a brand
new Eternos City, more futuristic and brighter in appearance.
The people from Teekay are thanked by King Randor, and
agree to stay on Eternia to help they heroic warriors
in the fight against evil. Then He-Man decides to move
the heroic warriors to a new base in Viper Tower, so
the city will not be so much at risk from evil warriors.

is a classic issue- it makes for great continuity with
the events on Planet Teekay, and the fall of Eternos
is one of the most important turning points in the comic's
entire canon. We see some very strangely colored evil
warriors here- Tri-Klops dressed in gray, a blue Clawful,
a brown Rattlor and a blue Beast Man!)
