    Another Primadon hero to help the gorillanators. Possibly a defensive aura and Gorillanator movement bonding.


    Sounds like a cool idea. Can we get a pic of him for size comparison to Quasatch and/or Gorillinators?

    Here are some comparison pictures:
    Spoiler:


    As you can see grodd is slightly larger than the gorillanators, but smaller than the Dzu-Teh. I also took a picture with the grodd figure from the Arkham Asylum set.

    Cool, thanks for the pic. I'd have to read up on the Gorillinators to see if "magic" is in their back-story. That's why I was thinking more Quasatch for the shaman aspect.

    Still, could be a good new figure.

    Yeah, I was only thinking warwitch because of the marro who have mainly technology, but still have Kee-Mo-Shee.

    I think he might do well as a religious leader to help give reasons for his leadership abilities. We could also make his name an anagram of Ceasar from Planet of the Apes to give a nod to that.

    I found this is in the HS Compendium.  In Laglor's Bio there is mention of the Primadon Elders .. perhaps that is what this 'shaman' figure could represent.

    Primadons

    A technologically advanced Gorilla-like species from the
    planet Marr. Laglor is known as an Alphallon, which
    may be a title used to describe high ranking Primadons.

    Prior to the dominance of the Marro on the planet Marr,
    the technological advanced Primadon used their technical
    knowledge for the advancement of peace, rather than just
    the preservation of it.


    Laglor
    Spoiler:

    Primadon from Marr that fights for Vydar. Laglor is
    an alphallon that serves as Vydar’s flag bearer. Laglor
    is known as an alphallon, which may be a title used
    to describe high ranking Primadons.

    Primal instincts
    awaken. The beast within cannot be contained. Laglor’s
    broad chest rises and falls; a faint whistle escapes from
    his wide nostrils as the great ape pulls in a mouthful of
    air and releases it in a snort. His eyes narrow, a wicked
    grin spreading wide across his shaggy face. Laglor’s mind
    summons the stories of his youth, stories told by the
    Primadon elders
    , of a time on Marr before the Marro
    infestation threatened to snuff out all other life on the
    planet. A time when the Primadon’s growing technology
    was used for the advancement of peace, rather than just
    the preservation of it. Laglor can contain it no longer.
    With a guttural howl he leaps high into the air, letting
    loose the beast within him. His thick arms flail, grasping
    at hanging vines. Snatching one out of the sky, he swings
    low over the swampy terrain and uses his right foot to
    grab hold of the skull of a Marro Stinger. Releasing the
    vine, Laglor soars through the air, catching hold of a
    branch which he nimbly pulls himself up onto. With a
    quick twist and snap, he disposes of the Marro Stinger
    and tightens his grip around the trigger handles of his
    autoloader, using it to fire down upon the swarming
    Marro that enclose Vydar’s agents below. Looking up,
    the agents see Laglor bearing the mark of Vydar high
    above. Using the distraction he’s created, they regroup
    and take aim upon their enemy with a heightened
    precision and range.

    Gorillanators
    Spoiler:

    Primadons from Marr that fight for Vydar. When
    Vydar had a vision of these agents, he was not sure what
    to think about these reclusive Primadons. He suspected
    that they were too primitive and lacking in the ways of
    warfare to be of any use in his army, but Vydar took a
    chance on them, and luckily, he was proven wrong. The
    Gorillanators are more advanced than many others on
    Valhalla. The secret development of superior technology
    on Marr has given them awesome capabilities in battle:
    they can move at astounding speeds, overtaking enemy
    positions in minutes; they can use their ranged attacks to
    neutralize any threat; and their body armor is made of
    Kiradium alloy, which makes bringing one of them down
    a daunting task.

    I really like the Primadon Elder connection to this figure. Toog, do you want to throw out some stats/powers to begin the brainstorming and generation of ideas?

    Okay here are some stats that I've been thinking about.

    Primadon
    Unique Hero
    Warwitch/ Elder
    Inspiring
    Medium 5

    Life 5
    Move 6
    range 1
    attack 3
    defense 3
    Points 100

    Gorillanator Movement Bonding
    Before taking a turn with ______, you may move 3 gorillanators you control up to 7 spaces each.

    Primandon Resolve Aura

    What do you think about the moving bonding allowing 3 Gorillinators or 1 Primadon hero moving 6 spaces?

    Since Laglor, Kursus, and Zaeus are Primadons .. this figure would give them an auto-shield against specials which is nice.

    I really like the auto shield vs. special attack. Nice.

    The move of 7 gorillinator bonding is the same as the Nakitas. Sounds good to me. I wouldn't mind Kai's suggestion, which would give the figure more flexibility - in case you went with an army without gorillinators. Or, keep the Gorillinators move at 7 and the Primadons at 5. There will be another common squad of Primadons released by C3V, so we should keep that in mind.

    Suggestion:

    PRIMADON MOVEMENT BONDING
    Before taking a turn with ______, you may move 3 Primadon squad figures you control up to 7 spaces each or you may move 1 Primadon Hero up to 5 spaces.

    Nice start Took! I can't think of any powers to suggest at this point.

    The anagram of Ceasar provided is the same as Ceasar. How about "Cearas" or "Raceas" or "Arceas" or "Scareas" . . . just thinking. Great theme!

    Arceas sounds good!

    I was trying to keep it so the Gorillanators moved at 7 still, but the C3V squad probably has lower move so maybe something like this:

    Primadon Movement Bonding

    Before taking a turn with Arceas, You may move 3 Gorillanators you control 7 spaces each, or move move any two Primadon Heroes or Squad figures you control up to 5 spaces each. Arceas cannot be moved by his own Primadon Movement Bonding.

    This gives a little more incentive to move up the heroes together or with a squad figure and will be okay of the 2 figure squad the C3V is coming out with.

    Pretty interesting idea. It would have to be noted Arceas couldn't move. You could also go 1 Primadon hero and 2 common Primadons along with the Gorrillanator option of 7. Pretty neat so far.

    Tuk hasn't been on the site for 2 months.

    I liked what he had going with this figure.

    Do we keep pushing forward on it? Or, do we let suffer in purgatory until Tuk comes back?

    I am torn here. I could wait until he gets back (if he does) but wouldn't mind if someone spear headed this as well.
