The masters need a field magician powerful enough to battle the likes of evil lyn, marzo, skelator, and Damon. And that Character should be Tarrak. From the depths of the original comic, he fits this bill perfectly. I dont remember if he ever had some sort of staff or weapon in those comics, but since not alot has been fleshed out on him then we can create an awesome backstory behind him.
But Skelator? With an "A"? I've been seeing this alot lately. What gives?
And as for this character, yeah I'm burned out on all these obscure uninteresting things. I love obscure characters, but there are so many characters in so many walks that we have to get to that these things have jumped the shark.
Yes, I want Tarrak. And he's so easy to make from Preternia Disguise He-Man! But they (Scott, Mattel management, and certain "pragmatic"--some might say unhelpful--fans) have made it clear characters like this aren't welcome any time soon. Those of us who love the unfamiliar characters as much as the familiar ones can only continue supporting the line in hopes that it'll run long enough for Tarrak to get a figure along with Josh, Shezar, Queen Elmora, Crimson Fury, and a slew of others. I don't think there's anything else to do about it, except keep asking for favorites. I'm not sure if Tarrak's design will inspire a following since he has a kind of village elder look, but Josh has a similarly basic design and he's becoming a familiar name to the org.

yes! i love these wise wizardly looking old guys. motu needs more than just eldor, he-ro, hsss, hordak, shadow weaver, keldor, marzo as wizards. only eldor is an iconic wizard type. i would really like keclar as a wizard also.
I just read the comics again. I remember my granny sewing a robe and trying to find a suitable base figure to make a Tarrak....so yeah I want this guy bad for the fact I have a robe with no figure and he is a cool character that oculd use some development.
I was just reading your input on this wizened wizard, if you were to put your spin on the character the following will be sure to want!

When I replied to this thread I was trying to say for gbagok to draw him up but not far from his original design and the rest will follow! In reguards to how he is, as is he would be fine not this extrodinary figure some seem to want but some times it's not how a character looks but what a character does that can make him/her viable for any line! That being said I want as much as can be produced for a line I truely love! I grew up with all sorts of friends who collected like me, one had GI Joe, another transformers, others had robotech, thunder cats, star wars, and they solely collected that! But in truth with all those other things to collect they all were still intrested in the masters and some even started collecting, but by then it was to late, IMO so many things were hard to find with out internet! Now we have a chance at it again we need more support so it will not die and we as fans are completely satisfied!
Some times I go over board but it is some thing I do love and want!
Yes! still in support for this guy. But I have a feeling he is not going to make the cut into classic unless there is a large support fallowing.
Skeleton-Warriors, Ra-Jar, Spinwit, Rock Golem, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Prahvus, General Tartaran, Hawke, Slob-Boar, King Agho, Hunga the Harpy, Sh'gora, Masks of Power Demons, Nocturna, Lizzor, Horde Wraiths, Sagitar, Crimson Fury, Lodar, Vizar, Angast, Negator, Melaktha, ABC Giants, Stridor
Yeah as much as I love this character, I feel as though being replaced in the storylines by Orko (and I love Orko) has relegated him to the "still on the table but no" pile.
I wonder if DC would resurrect this character in their new comics--since they've you know killed off the Sorceress and turned Orko evil. Eternia needs good wizards now! Plus maybe a redesign would fast track him back into popularity enough for a figure....in 2016 or later I guess....
Be sure to read Book of Evil Part 2: The Bells of Doom, only in the He-Man.org Fan Fic & Media forums!
I'm on board for a Tarrak figure.
I'd love a Tarrak figure, heck I'd love any figure based on the classic DC comics. Give me Damon and Ceril too!
I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!
I'd buy him, always up for more Wizards and Sorcerers
