  • Joe Amaro: The Four Horsemen's Secret Weapon...

    I just saw this over the 4HM's website Powerlordsreturn.com and I think it's a good source material to share with you here:

    Meet Graphic Artist and Designer Joe Amaro.

    This Caballero Solitario from El Paso is not one of the Four Horsemen, but he is an unsung hero when it comes to the Masters of the Universe Classics line and he has been one of Four Horsemen Toy Design’s key collaborators when it comes to creating playsets and vehicles.

    Mr. Amaro collaborated with Artist Nate Baertsch and the Four Horsemen’s Sculptor Eric Treadaway to help design the (yet unreleased) Snake Mountain and Roton, and other vehicles that have been released like The Battle Ram, The Wind Raider, Night Stalker, The Talon Fighter and the Hover Robots. He was also part of a team effort to help the Four Horsemen create and produce the Modern Castle Grayskull for the Masters of the Universe Classics line. I had the great pleasure of interviewing Mr Amaro on video about his role in Master’s History and asking him about the possibility of getting Power Lords and ThunderCats playsets and vehicles like the ones he helped create for Masters of the Universe Classics.

    In Powerlordsreturn.com’s exclusive video interview with this amazingly talented artist, he speaks publicly about his role working with the Horsemen on Masters of The Universe and more.

      they were pretty interesting videos. it's too bad the interviewer isn't a motu expert. there were some customs in his cabinets that I wished they had zoomed in on.
