    Calix in MOTUC

    Of all the rock people that came to Etheria, You had to figure that one of would have been turned by the horde. And for 200x fans, you get a brand new figure from the series. And since his design is different from the other rock people, you dont feel like you are getting a repaint of one of the rock warrriors. Just give him a stone Horde crossbow, and you got yet another Horde member to add to the ranks.

    I'm surprised there isn't already a thread for this guy.

    Along with Dactys, Calix is my most wanted 200x figure, and very high in my over all list as well, there both definitely in my top 10, so bring him on, the sooner the better I say.

    I guess it all depends upon whether or not the Stonedar and Rokkon have their action feature, or not. If they do, and their sculpt is compromised like the vintage figures, I don't want Calix to share the same body. However, If they create what is essentially a new rocky buck, I'f be cool with the shared parts.

    I'd love to get a Calix! I think he was much cooler than Carnivus. Hopefully he'll be one of the 200x figures we get in 2012
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    I definitely want to see Calix, and the sooner the better! That being said, I'd prefer for him not to share a body-plan with Rokkon or Stonedar.

    That's actually a great point. I'd love if they made him of the same race (or planet) as the rock people.

    And since they stated they are trying to tie all the timelines together, this is a great idea.

    didnt even think of that. Great connection. I love Der Golem. Great connection. HOrde = Classic Monsters.

    Maybe something like:
    Hordak used a combination of magic and technology to create the Stone Ray. A device capable of creating rock soldiers out of solid stone. However Hordak was never able to perfect the device which left the rock warriors it created with a fatal flaw. Any contact with water and they would crumble back into to the rocks that birthed them.
    With the help of his Witches and their combined magic, Hordak was able to create one Rock Warrior not susceptible to this weakness, the mighty Calix.
    Calix rose to become a Commander in the Horde army until the fateful day of the assault on Grayskull when Hordak executed Calix for failing him one too many times.

    Centuries later Skeletor found the Stone Ray in the ruins of a Horde temple and used it it to create his own army of Rock Warriors which he sent to attack the royal palace. A huge battle took place untill the Masters drove the Rock Warriors back to Snake Mountain where they discovered the secret to destroying the Rock Warriors and the Stone Ray for good.

    Calix could even come with the Stone Ray (pictured behind Skeletor on the cover of the book) as his second accessory.

    What's great about the cover to that is that Rock Warrior looks like what VIntage Calix would look like. Just make him grey and throw on a (removeable?) horde symbol!

    Exactly thats why I think it such a good idea to link them, and my bio explains why Calix looks a little different as Shadow Weaver and the rest of the witches helped throw some extra magic into to his mix.

    I like Calix. I'll probably be verbally whipped for saying this but I think his design is far superior to Stonedar and Rokkon. He's more visually appealing to me. In the bios I hope they resurrect him by saying that he doesn't really die when he's blown to bits, he just needs to reassemble. I'm not a fan of death in MOTU continuity.

    Would love to see him use the bulkier bucks such as ram man/ Leech. I really sizable Calix would be awesome.

    Calix in MOTUC: Rogue Rock Warrior???

    In thinking about Calix, and the problem faced by the need or a 100% tool, I started thinking about Stonedar and Rokkon, also needing 100% tools.

    Does anyone think that one of the following could work (and work well)?

    1) Calix in MOTUC is an evil rock warrior, making him look more like one of our vintage rock guys.
    2) Calix in MOTUC is NOT an evil rock warrior, but all three share a basic rocky buck that, when different armor, heads, and paint apps are added, make them all look unique.

    Callix is a humanoid made of stone. Stonedar and Rokkon are spacemen with rock armor.

    IMO anyway.

    Rokkon, Stonedar and Calix can all share parts.

    I actually really like the idea that Calix could be a rock warrior race like Stonedar and Rokkon. NOt only does that tie together the intergalactic nature of the Horde and their (evidentally) common practice of subverting local warriors and creatures to their cause, but it certainly would help link old continuity to old, and if their bucks were similar (or even reuses) I would be completely fine with that. Armour, head sculpt, ect, gives a buck alot of variety.

    Bring it on, I say.

    Wasn't there an old He-Man book that was called "He-Man vs the Rock monsters" or something that had a very Calix-y looking group of charcaters on the front?

    EDIT:




    If he has ties to Rokkon and Stonedar (and Granita) then he can also have ties to .... OMG .... THE METEORBS!!!!!!!!!!!

    In that book though, they're non-sentient creatures created by a ray that Skeletor possesses. They (and oddly, the gun itself) were water soluble! (I'd love to get a few Rock Warriors though!)

    As for Callix, I like the idea of him being of the same race as the Rock People! Figuring, if he'd been made in the Vintage Line, he'd have been one of their kind. He could share parts with Stonedar, certainly.
    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
