Cut 1728. Rushing to the captured puppet's aid, Shatta is shocked to find the partially deconstructed Palme in a chamber that is spattered with the blood of the scientists who were trying to extract his precious Egg. He asks if Palme has done this, and in response a blue stream of energy emerges from his power source and snakes toward him as he reaches for his sword.

This set-up is powerfully difficult to image, as the nearly (but not quite) black background is covered by two oversized cel layers, one the A1 with Shatta's figure, the other an unnumbered layer with the airbrushed shadow. This was the best digital image that I could manage of this huge set-up, basting together four separate scans. You'd just have to see this item in person to get a full appreciation of the amazing detail of this image, even without the CGI effect that was later added to show the blue stream of light slithering diagonally toward the horrified Shatta.

I've added a separate photo of the background by itself to the "Sketches and Backgrounds" gallery.
