    The Warrior in Yellow Who is Participating in Tug of War Support Thread!!

    You've seen the question as asked by mick4metal in the latest (May 2011) WTFWTK:

    You have said mini-comic characters are an option for figures. What do you think about the warrior in yellow who is participating in a tug of war against He-man in the mini-comic Skeletor's Dragon as a figure,
    The answer was:

    While we certainly could do this figure, we think it would take a lot of fan support to get him into the line. What say you He-Fans?
    Sounds like a Challenge to me! Here he is:



    So lets show your Support for: The Warrior in Yellow Who is Participating in a Tug of War against He-man in the mini-comic Skeletor's Dragon

    TuGor maybe?


    EDIT: Forum member oICEMANo provided a mock up of what The Warrior in Yellow Who Is Participating in Tug of War might look like as a repaint:



    Lovin that rope accessory!!

    EDIT: So, after 7 pages and summer deep of The Warrior in Yellow Who Is Participating in Tug of War action, bios have been requested from the left and right. So I'm updating this post to reflect some of the bio work we've begun on this essential classic from the original mini comics:

    EDIT: The Warrior in Yellow Who is Participating in Tug of War Mania has continued. This time, world class action figure customizer, Scotward and his beloved wife Mrs. Ward set out to create a custom The Warrior in Yellow Who is Participating in Tug of War to much publicity. Check out one picture here, and more in his post:

    Please...this is just ridiculous now.

    Do you really want this to take up the slot of another figure?!?!?!

    Definitely not supporting it.

    Just chalk it up to a Royal Eternian Guard

    I'd never want this guy to take the slot of a proper MOTU figure. I want a proper "adult" Cringer first before we get to this guy. He's just some random guy in yellow armor.
    I'm not supporting this.
    Awesome sticker included!

    HAHAHAHAHA.....ahhhh...it just keeps going. Yeah, lets do it! COME ON, PEOPLE! Let's get this guy in the line! If we can do this, then we can turn this line in any direction we please! If we get one completely useless background character in this line per year, then we'll be on our way to being as pointless as most of the Star Wars toyline! Come on! We can DO THIS!

    If anything from this page were to be made into MOTUC I would opt for Fisto or Dragon Blaster Skeletor and I sincerely hope this random yellow figure never sees the light of day

    You pretty much said everything I was thinking, even to the point of Cringer.

    So, guy in yellow, a big "no" to you.

    The outpouring of support so far has been overwhelming. I think fans really want The Warrior in Yellow Who is Participating in Tug of War. Like Disco Skeletor, Josh, and Songster, The Warrior in Yellow Who is Participating in Tug of War is proving to be a fan favorite wanted, better yet demanded by the fans

    WE have the momentum fans, lets keep this up!!

    It's so crazy it just might work! But what makes you think the warrior is a he? Looks like a she to me with that bob cut. A very buff she but a she nonetheless...

    You might want to look up the meaning of 'outpouring'.

    It's crap like that that drove me away from this line. It's also crap like this that ensured that I would never ever buy a subscription (because I wouldn't necessarily put this past Mattel).

    Real Name: Josh

    . . . he wasn't even worth Skeletor's effort to tie him up so I'm thinking doubtful.

    But no one should tell another member that this guy isn't important, right? We're all allowed to have our own opinions in this line.

    Funny thread though

    I would rather have every other item pictured on that mini comic page above, over that character in yellow... heck I would even rather have that pink cloud.

    He does more than that guy in silver and purple behind Teela. At least The Warrior in Yellow Who is Participating in Tug of War has a speaking part.

    And his boots can be reused for Sea Hawk once Mattel gets the rights!

    Um, no. Again, you don't seem to understand things. "Like that" does not mean "that specifically". I was referring to the obscure stuff showing up before stuff like Ram-Man and Fisto. I can understand wanting to milk the line for all it's worth, but everything doesn't deserve a $20 figure.

    the reason why i like these ideas more than others, is because it allows the horsemen and the creative team at matty to CREATE, and infused new ideas and thoughts in to a character that we have "seen" but never heard.


    count me in!

    This guy is awesome! He is seriously one of my top 5 anticipated figures for this line. I love the name Tug-Or.

    My top 5 figures are:

    1. Beastman disguised as a magician from one of the story books I had as a kid.
    2. Songster
    3. The Warrior in Yellow who is Participating in Tug of War
    4. An Eternian Wench
    5. Gwildor

    Well. He is about as important to the mythology as "Josh", heroic master of bringing the potato salad.

    I say let TWIYWIPITOW into the line.
