Obelix EAN 674457 by Steiff European Exclusive (excluding Germany, UK and Ireland) ONE ONLY IN AUSTRALIA by SPECIAL REQUEST - Ltd Ed Number 000345 Determined to make Asterix an anti-hero flying in the face of the established order of the world of comic books, Rene Goscinny certainly did not want to give his main character a sidekick who would play the classic role of stooge. But Albert Uderzo, somewhat frustrated at not having made Asterix a beefy Gaul like he dreamed, could not resist placing at his side a big strong warrior, more akin to the impressive muscle-bound characters he already excelled at drawing. Although he had only a minor role in the first adventure, Obelix quickly became an essential character that his authors developed as they went along. He is actually the readers' favourite hero: all opinion polls place Obelix at the top of the list of favourite village characters. In the adventures penned by Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo, we find him by turns easily offended, sensitive, and definitely a glutton. An overgrown child who grew up too quickly and who is not yet aware of his own strength. In his defence, it must be said that not everyone falls in a cauldron of magic potion when he's a little boy! Obelix is made of finest mohair standing 18.4 inches tall. He is jointed at the neck and has embroidered eyes and eyebrows. Every detail has been carefully crafted... Steiff artisans truly captured this beloved character in all his rotund glory! Obelix EAN 674457 is a 2017 Steiff European Exclusive white tag edition limited to only 750 pieces.
