This is a limited-edition promotional action figure of an awkward-looking robed teenage wizard, still in its original blister pack. The poorly-translated text on the back says that he's a student of "Hugwallow's School of Magic and Mysticism," and urges you to collect the whole set.

Notes

  • August 2007's item of the month from Mr. Store.
Its in-store description: Does all kinds of groovy magical stuff. See this forum post for specifics.
  • The forum post in question reads:
    It's here!
    And it's kind of complicated, so I'm posting exact technical details in this thread so that people know what they're getting.
    If you don't care about numbers:
    It's a wizard! It casts awesome spells that help you win!
    If you do:
    Prior to combat, it heals you if you're hurt, and delevels your enemy if your enemy is significantly stronger than you.
    During combat, it attacks (every other round, on average.) It picks a random element to attack with, and shouldn't ever pick a "bad" one for a given monster.
    After combat, it acts as a volleyball and a gravy fairy at 1/3 weight, unless it's properly equipped, in which case its effectiveness is doubled to 2/3. The equipment wears out after 25ish turns and is destroyed.
  • First prize in The Raffle House on January 13, 2008.
