    I'd love to get this guy, but I prefer him as a villain as seen in the new mini-comic.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I actually disagree. Well, I don't truly know what the creator intended, but I love this bio written for him and I LOVE this figure. When I designed my character, I asked myself how the design at 80's Mattel would be approached:

    -I always thought that it should fit the re-use of molds in new and creative ways.
    -New desired characters would be a different ethnicity for me, expanding the aesthetic diversification on the shelf.
    -The gimmick would be very much in-tune with that culture in a non-offensive and fun, toyetic way.
    -Would the gimmick be used or work if this was done in the 80's? Can the concept be "reverse-engineered?"

    This toy is all that in spades. I am utterly enamored with it. The extra turban gems. The monkey. The clever use of Evil-Lyn's daggers, the Webstor backpack, and the Vikor Shield. THIS was how I approached my character, and Ra-Jar has that in spades. There is so much AMAZING with this character that I didn't notice before.

    I, we, NEED this figure exactly as designed here, like, yesterday. Amazing how a custom figure can change my perception of the character. The art shown previously did nothing to evoke this yearning from me.

    Which org member designed him? STELLAR job!

    I would buy him in a heartbeat!!! Awesome looking character!!!

    Hero or villain, I don't even care. I simply buy characters that look cool, and he is, by far, one of the coolest designs I have ever seen in years of collecting toys. MATTEL absolutely needs to make this fast.

    The plans of mattel are unfolding, they said they had plans for the runners up of the cac. So now start introducing the figures into the line. Maybe we are getting a mini sub of these guys next year to add more depth to this already great line. So I guess what im saying is yes make him good or evil.

    Can't blame them really - why have all these great designs relegated to the sidelines when they're all far better than the lousy figures Mattel designed themselves (with the exception of Draego-Man) for the 30th anniversary sub in 2012?

    However Mattel chooses to engineer a solution for Ra-Jar's six arms, that solution could be reusable for Hexor (one of the evil Obelisk warriors).

    Wasn't thrilled with this guy when he was originally shown. But the mini comic and the customs I've seen have totally swayed me. I think he'd look really awesome.

    he was (and is) my least favourite design from the runner ups (not countingterrible gang stor or whatever)

    that being said that toy mock up looks pretty tops. If he was part of the Snake Man Faction that would also be great. They need the support.

    I would expect that he would use the NA Heman boots as portrayed in the minicomic and that would be just fine by me.

    Would all of you still want him if because of all the arms he got like no additional accessories? Like either the sword and sheild, or the 6 daggars? Which would you want if only one set of accessories?

    I'd rather have the sword and sheild.

    Rajar in MOTUC

    Rajar takes a simple gimmick of giving a guy extra arms and giving him a Indian type motif, some cool accessories , and an awesome mustache to make a really cool villain. As part of the Revenge Squad, he seems to be a handful to fight and but in terms of making him into a figure, Real easy. Prince Adam Vest, Boots could be Geldors, Bow,or Strongarms, and a new head and backpack idea with 4 other arms. And the accessories are already made, Evillyn Daggers, Demoman sword, and Vikor Shield. And his little monkey sidekick, not sure if he had a name, But I look this characters look alot for some reason.

    He is such a cool character but I fear he would end up losing a lot of accessories if he ever got to figure form. Love the monkey!
