Welcome To McFarlane's Warriors of the Zodiac
Are you ready for McFarlanes Warriors of the Zodiac Series 1 Action Figure Set ?
McFarlane's have declared 2008 the Year of the Zodiac.
With his usual flare of challenging the established and routine McFarlane will be releasing his representation of the traditional Astrological birth signs and as with his Twisted Tales these 12 new Zodiac action figures bring a whole new meaning to old traditional symbols.
Over the course of the next year McFarlane Toys will be releasing a series of action figures based on his vision of the twelve sigms of the Zodiac but behind this new line lies a more sinister story in true McFarlane's fashion.
Earth is being attacked by alien forces from a far off galaxy wreaking choas and destruction on an unthinkable scale, new armies and alliances are forming, but is it random or part of a larger more sinister plan?
McFarlanes Warriors of the Zodiac Series 1 Action Figure Setincludes:
Due May, 2008
Those born under the sign of Aries are friendly creatures with a forceful manner, a firm hand clasp and an instant smile.
They are naturally humorous and quick of wit, enjoying music and entertainment. As students, they have the ability to apply whatever they learn to good advantage.
Individuals governed by Aries are courageous leaders, genuinely concerned about the welfare of those they command.
Being a responsible soul, it is rare that those ruled by Aries will use a subordinate to obtain their own objectives but it does occasionally happen.
Aries is much concerned with self both positively and negatively. This self-reliant characteristic can sometimes lead to a self-centered attitude, with a tendency to be overly-concerned with personal advancement and physical satisfaction.
Therefore Aries can be a confusing sign because there is a complex combination of very strong masculine and feminine expressions all combined together.
Because of the male energy surrounding it, when a woman is born under Aries, it creates some of the most interesting women in the world, women who are adventurous, independent and have competitive natures.
It also tends to make them very forthright.
Doctor Acacandam dating from 1592 said that this sign for Aries was made from many stars which made up the head of the Aries (constellation) . The head of Aries is called Aluathay or Salhay and it is made up of four stars.
Sociable gregarious extroverts, Arians are fantastic to have around because they tend to add life and soul to any party because of their energetic, bouncy, enthusiastic nature.At times the Aries personality becomes very dark indeed when crossed by a lover.
If you were born on the first or last day of a Sun sign, in astrological terms you were born on a cusp. If that's the case, you will probably benefit from reading your own Sun sign and the Sun sign that ends or begins right before or after your date of birth.
Mesha Jatakas ( people born under aries ) never shy away from testing new grounds. Their approach may be construed at times as arrogant and domineering; it does take a lot of focus to be a leader.
Incurably romantics at heart, they will profess undying love for their beloved - a promise they are most likely to keep. Ideal life partners are most likely to be other Mesha ( Aries ), Simha ( Leo ), Dhanu ( Aquarius ), or Vrishchika ( Scorpio ).
Measures 6 3/8 inches at highest point (top of left horn). Articulated at neck, shoulders, left elbow, wrists, waist and knees. Includes bladed weapon.
Warriors of the Zodiac: Aries StoryTaurus
The second sign of the Zodiac, Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and desire.
A fixed (strong and solid) sign, Taurus governs practicality and security. It is a feminine sign and very magnetic.
Which signs would be able to give a Taurean all the things it craves and appreciate all that Taurus can give in return?
Aries is much too pushy and brash for Taurus. Gemini is definitely out because Gemini craves change and Taurus fears it. Sagittarius is far too independent for somewhat needy Taurus. Aquarius and Taurus are not likely to approve of each other's lifestyles. Libra is yet another sign that may keep Taurus happy.
Libra is a warm and romantic sign, and Taurus likes these qualities. Each sign likes to collect beautiful things. Both Libra and Taurus are ruled by Venus, making them highly sensual. Libra takes delight in pleasing others and Taurus is all about pleasure.
However, Libra can at times seem very casual towards love and this can make a Taurus feel insecure, causing problems in the relationship.
Virgo and Taurus can make a very successful team.
Both signs love home and the quest for knowledge. Neither sign cares to be wild and crazy.
Virgo is thrifty and likes that Taurus can keep track of their money. Both Taurus and Virgo are Earth signs, and can match each other sexually, though it may take some time to adjust to each other since Taurus is much more physical than Virgo.
One of the main characteristics of this sign is its dependability.
All Taureans to some extent will show this trait. Traditional and steadfast in their beliefs, Taureans may appear to many as being stubborn.
Much of this comes from the need to be secure. This security is a main driving force for this sign.
Sensual in nature, the natives of Taurus enjoy not only physical pleasures, but also anything that can be stimulating to their senses.
They are somewhat possessive, and tend to like to own things.
People born in Taurus are calm, patient, reliable, loyal, affectionate, and ambitious.
There is also something about their appearance, which makes people excited, which makes them comfortable to be with.
They are also strong, secure and stable. But they can sometimes want to have everything, or be stubborn, insecure, rigid, and be lazy and slow. They can also get jealous very easily. (a trait I must admit to having ;-) ).
Stands 5 inches tall. Articulated at neck, shoulders, wrists, waist and ankles. Includes removable mask and weapon.
Warriors of the Zodiac: Taurus StoryGemini
Gemini is the third Sign of the Zodiac.
Moving beyond the physical exploration of Taurus, Gemini examines the world through intellect. They are fascinated with gathering as much information as possible, and their facility as communicators -- both written and verbal -- arises from this need.
Bright and quick-witted, people born under Gemini display great imagination and tend to be very expressive. They love to learn.
As the third Sign, Gemini also rules the third House: the House of Communication. 1
Gemini is an air sign associated with cool detachment and reason. Air signs (Libra and Aquarius are the others) love to watch and comment, but don't like to get their hands dirty or their emotions overheated.
The sign of Gemini, having the symbol of 'The Twins', is considered to be the child of the zodiac. Just as its symbol, a Gemini person will always have two different sides to his changeable personality.
He changes his mind quickly, along with his clothes, his job, his love life or even his residence. Ruled by the planet Mercury, Gemini people tend to get bored too quickly and need new stimulating things every now and then. They seem to be surrounded by a nervous, crackling energy and mostly talk fluently and fast.
Geminians are socialiable and love spending time with friends and family.
There will be times when this outgoing sign would want to go bungee jumping, and there will be times when sitting at home playing cards will suit them.
Either way, friends are plentiful.
Those who can match the Geminian intellect and love of variety will go the distance.
One quality they seek out in others is communication. The Gemini loves to talk and gain insight from others. Without a clear flow of talk, the Gemini will lose interest pretty quick.
Family is important, especially those of like mind. Friendship with siblings is quite common for the Geminian, and time spent together is cherished. Meeting responsibilities with family can pose a challenge at times, but almost always, the Geminian comes through.
They are clever, sharp and intelligent, but may be extremely satirical at times.
Most of the Geminis tend to look younger than their age. They are pretty light on their feet, being here one moment and somewhere else the next.
They love to throw surprises, especially when they are in love.
The duality of Geminis gives them the ability of doing two things at a time.
However, routines bore them and make them feel imprisoned. Drudgery and monotony can easily put them off. Punctuality is not one of the Gemini characteristics.
Prone figure measures 3½ inches at highest point (spikes on back). Articulated at all four shoulders (ball joints), wrists and middle of back.
Warriors of the Zodiac: Gemini StoryCancer
Cancer is the fourth Sign of the Zodiac.
After the exploration of Self, the physical world, and the intellectual world by the first three Signs, Cancer people turn to nurturing the family group.
They are emotional and traditional, interested in heredity and ancestors, and this is reflected in their desire to care for relatives and propagate the family line. Their lives are generally centered around the home, including hereditary property and "family roots."
As the fourth Sign, Cancer also rules the fourth House: the House of Home.
Cancer is a water sign. Water signs are intuitive and emotional by nature. Cancer as a water sign displays great depth and variety of emotion.
Cancerians embody the indecisive nature of water, but when they have to they will choose. Cancers are quite emotional taking their association with water and the moon to the next level. One minute you could be talking to a perfectly happy Cancer, the next minute they could be snapping at you having transformed into a crabby Cancer.
Call it a sixth sense, good gut or intuition, but whatever the name, the Crab has it. Members of this sign have an excellent instinct for which partner will serve them well, and once they hone in, it's a laser beam shot. Cancer's charm and magnetism are qualities which will prove most alluring to a lover, and coupled with their nurturing need, will prove hard to resist.
The Crab loves to feel secure, so a lover who remembers birthdays and other special days, or simply pops a bottle of champagne for no special reason, will be rewarded with tenderness and affection.
If the Crab tests a lover with occasional bouts of jealousy, it's only because a stronger emotional response is craved. The ideal Cancer soulmate can spoon on the couch and watch TV all night long.
Measures 6 3/8 inches tall at highest point on head. Articulated at left shoulder, wrists, right claw (ball joint on pincer), waist and knees.
