    Obelisk warrior appreciation thread

    From the mini-comic 'The Obelisk':



    Who wants these cool Obelisk warriors added into MOTUC?

    Personally, I always thought the speech balloons mixed up 6-Arm-Or and Rep-Tail between good and evil so I could never work out who they fought for! The bad guy wants to rescue people and the good guy wants to use his tail to destroy!!

    Anyway, these could be neat additions to our collections, either as more fully fleshed out good and evil warriors or even just as random evil beasts fighting for Skeletor.

    I think what's going on in the comic is, because He-Man & Skeletor shouted their commands at the same time, they "confused" the Obelisk, thus, making "confused" monsters.

    The sounds of crickets tell me not to expect these guys any time soon

    Good thinking 99! I can't believe I never thought of that! Funny thing is, as a kid I wrote over the speech balloon in one mini-comic to change 'good' and 'evil' to fit with each warriors intentions.

    It could be a cool army builder with different body parts to combine and get your favourite confused monster and some confusing variations.

    Well Swanmarsh, you know I want them! I will buy anything pertaining to MOTU minicomics, poster art, and so on. It keeps the line fresh, and hopefully going for years to come. Hopefully your thread won't go sour and have people posting "These characters don't interest me at all" and things of that nature like they do to my threads. People should have the respect to only post if they want to see them since this is a "appreciation" thread, and not a "non-appreciation" thread.

    If they can make Vikor and Carnivus they can make these guys.

    That is a cool idea with great potential! An Obelisk pak with body parts (like Modulok, only more-so) to piece together and create many potential warriors to fight for good or evil.

    If we all had your talent for customising we wouldn't need Matty to release these guys! Then there'd be nothing for folk to complain about.

    I doubt we will see these any time soon, but they could be made by Matty with a large % of re-used parts, IMO.

    I think Rep-Tail would be a monty for a Saurod buck and tail, without armor, monster hands and feet, plus a unique head. About 85% use of existing parts (that is, after they release Saurod).

    6-Arm-Or would be more difficult as he would need a unique torso buck but may be able to re-use Modulok or Mantenna arms and legs.

    Red Horn could just be normal monster buck with unique head plus a large, oversized right hand with long claws. Again 85% use of existing tools, so at face value, very easy for Mattel to make.

    The Obelisk is the trippiest minicomic ever! It reads like someone wrote it while very very high.

    ...and little new tooling would be needed... just some new heads or maybe repainted (unflocked modern MossMan head would fit). The body parts could be repaints of used parts (once made swappable like TrapJaw arms and King Hiss body)

    I agree, they look so generic that only a minimal tooling would be required.
    I never thought about them as potential MOTUCs, actually, but if they do them I will buy them for sure. I love obscure characters from minicomics!

    A Modulok type concept might work very nicely here. THat's something I'd definitely buy.

    I'm all for random mini-comic (and any other) characters being included in the MOTUC line! These guys, the Masks of Evil creatures (in both forms), the Manticore, Ice Hackers (fairly easy working off of Gy-Gor's buck), and anything else!
    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

    Yes, I'd like these, as well as other mini-comic characters.

    I want those! Most Alcala's creatures look great anyway. And I do want a good creature that searches and destroys, and an evil one that rescues people. Why not?

    Count me in, for sure! An Obelisk Warriors multipack would be great.

    Personally, I always thought the speech balloons mixed up 6-Arm-Or and Rep-Tail between good and evil so I could never work out who they fought for! The bad guy wants to rescue people and the good guy wants to use his tail to destroy!!
    It would be nice to hear more suggestions on how these guys could be named. For example, to avoid digits, the six-armed one could be Hexor (playing with two meanings of hex). How about something like Demonor for the third? Rep-Tail for the second one sounds nice, but somehow I feel there's something missing; because his head has a somewhat mammalian feel, so he doesn't look fully reptilian. To make him more distinct from other tailed characters (Whiplash in particular), he could be cast as a chameleonic master of shapeshifting whose appearance would "blend" with that of the environment, and named, say, Kam-E-Lion, Man-E-Shapes, Cop-E-Cham or Blendor.
