I'd buy a Calix.
But I love the Horde characters, I'll buy anyone with a Horde symbol lol
He who dies with the most MOTUC wins!
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.
I would love to see Calix. Though I think it might be good if he has the normal red Horde symbol instead of the gray one. Also I'm not against a connection to the rock people like Rokkon and Stonedar (if done right he could share some parts with any future rock people without seeming too recycled). Although I don't know what kind of accessories this guy could come with. A stone Horde crossbow or a cracked second head?
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.
PoP Variants are part of the vintage line, too! Starburst She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, and Scratchin' Sound Catra for 2015!!!
Callix is a humanoid made of stone. Stonedar and Rokkon are spacemen with rock armor.
Planet Claire has pink air
All the trees are red
No one ever dies there
No one has a headThe B-52's
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.
CALIX is a shape-shifter Rock Warrior. After his apparent death by Hordak, he recreates himself...

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

MOTUC WISH LIST: SNARRRLLL:
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.
MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeleteen, Prince Keldor, Captain Randor, The Great Black Wizard, Lady Slither, Spirit, Tuvar, Baddra, Cursed Marzo, and for the love of Grayskull, ODIPHUS!!!
I've always thought Calix should be a rogue rock warrior.
Skeleton-Warriors, Ra-Jar, Spinwit, Rock Golem, General Tartaran, Hawke, Slob-Boar, King Agho, Hunga the Harpy, Sh'gora, Masks of Power Demons, Nocturna, Lizzor, Sagitar, Crimson Fury, Lodar, Vizar, Angast, Negator, King Miro, Melaktha, Crystal-Man, ABC Giants, Stridor, Road Ripper, Land Shark
If there's one thing i didn't like about 200X, it would be the fact that Calix lasts a minute into the show. But he made enough of an impression on me to make me think what could have been...
Totally support Calix making it into the Classics line, preferably without any attachment to Stonedar/Rokkon nor the vintage Rock Soldiers. I don't see why they have to be connected to Calix at all, why can't they be individuals in their own right? Also, I don't think interchanging parts with Stonedar/Rokkon is a good idea... How could they possibly share parts being different sculpts?
Anyway, looking forward to the day Calix becomes part of the line.
Most Wanted MOTU Classics:
*200X ~ WMD Roboto/Sorceress *Filmation ~ Teela' Na/Hawke *Play-Sets ~ Eternia/Crystal Castle *Vehicles ~ Land Shark/Roton *Beasts ~ Stridor/Dragoon
I'm definitely onboard for a Calix figure. However, I see no connection between him and Stonedar and Rokkon.
My trade feedback: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=212100
I would love to see Calix sooner than later. I am getting worried that some of the "obscure" MYP characters may be falling off the roadmap with all of the filmation possibilities.
Rambo was a documentary filmed in real time.
After seeing Castle Grayskullman I think, he could be in the not too distant future. He only had a very short screentime. Who knows how he would turn out as action figure? If you take a look at the Faceless One, he doesn't exactly look like in the cartoon, neither does Horde Prime.
So would if they'd reuse the Grayskullman boots and feet, sculpted a wider torso over the standart buck like they did with King Hiss- then he wouldn't need that much of new tooling and would look different enough from other figures.
I also though they might be able to used some Grayskullman parts for him and he was also in one panel of the the MOTUC mini-comic #2 which I was pleased to see.
He's my most wanted 200x character after Dactys and I hope we get them both soon
The more Horde members the better. I'm thinking he might be more suited to the Ram Man buck? I guess they could retool him to make him look smaller (Leech buck) but there's something about a rock creature that implies a more hulking stature. Rokkon and Stonedar seem to be more a rocky exterior as if they are fused with the rock rather than being made out of rock...

according to some rumors, Calix is next horde member, right ?
Calix is very cool. I made a custom of Calix back in the 200x days using a Yu-Gi-Oh figure. Would love to get a classics version of him.
MYP Sorceress is a MUST HAVE figure for MOTUC!
