Check out the Tri-Klops Netflix CGI Official images from the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Animated series
Another one of Skeletor’s evil henchman. Tri-Klops, made his debut in Season 2 of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Netflix CGI animated series. In the series, Tri-Klops is a levitating drone made up of a large mechanical headgear ring that is connected together by several cables. Like the vintage figure from 80’s, the headgear has the familiar three optic lenses of red, green, and blue that can rotate to the front one at a time. According to the Wiki Grayskull,
Tri-Klops was built by Kronis as a surveillence and retrieval drone. When Beast Man was unable to locate King Randor, who was being granted sanctuary in the sewers, Kronis deployed Tri-Klops to intercept the Sorcerer Tribe protecting him.Tri-Klops
We were taken back when Tri-Klops first appeared in the series as a drone but it was only a matter of time before the grand plan for Tri-Klops was revealed. The drone has the ability to possess another being although the main objective for Tri-Klops is deception as it can also command its hosts to do other actions, such as dancing and singing. Tri-Klops take on the hosts natural skills and abilities and use its camouflage technology to hide itself. We saw this in the animated series as Tri-Klops possessed King Randor and we were non the wiser as Trap Jaw bonked Randor on the head revealing Tri-Klops was indeed attached to him.
CGI Animated Series Appearance
Tri-Klops deploys the use of camouflage technology to hide itself when controlling a host, where the being does not even realize they are being controlled. In a battle scene in Episode 8 of season 2, we see Tri-Klops has possessed yet another person but this time it did not try and deceive anyone as you can clearly see the drone attacked to another’s body using the tube like tentacles to take control of their mind and body.
200x Figure Vibes
This is also the closest an animated figure has come to looking like its former self from previous toy lines as the Netflix Animated series figure gives off some serious MOTU 200x vibes. With the 200x repaint of Tri-Klops specifically, the use of greens and blacks pay homage to the Mike Young Productions version. The hoses that the Tri-Klops drone uses to attach to a host in the animated series have an eery resemblance to the hoses in the 200x version of Tri-Klops. The loin armor is also similar, yet different, and it gives Tri-Klops a cooler look than the vintage figure that just had a furry loin cloth.
The actual Tri-Klops figure is on the core figure blister card where you can see an illustration of Tri-Klops in the upper left corner and it also gives a demo of the attack feature. Like the images of the animated Tri-Klops from the cartooon, Tri-Klops is packed with a techno staff versus a sword like every previous of the figure. If you look at the gold chest and the staff, you can see that he has possessed a member of the Eternian Guard as you can see the crests on the figure and the weapon. The color pallet used for Tri-Klops really sets him apart from the other figures as he is a much darker figure than the other figures in the CGI line.
The cable design is one of the more unique aspects of the figure and you can see how they plug into the back of the figure and weave around and attach to the forearm bracers. It definitely gives off a machine vibe to the figure and the cool part is that the cables are long enough that you can weave them around to the front of the figure or leave them in the back to change up the look on your shelf.
