Choose your roof!
Did you know that a pig kind of introduced Asterix in his very first animated movie Astérix le Gaulois from 1967? That's why I have included a little piggy in my Asterix the Gaul LEGO IDEAS product idea.
I also made a links between the hay cart and the pig, that needs hay to sleep upon and between the hay cart and the roof. In some comic books the roof of Asterix' home is made out of wooden bars but in others the roof is covered with hay. This increases the ability let the cow merchant interact with Asterix in another manner: he delivers hay to Asterix for the pig and for roof covering during the colder days in Gaul.

P.s.: if someone thinks there's no menhir for Obelix, look closely next to him and at the left side of the house ;)
In this set idea Julius Caesar comes with this chariot and he could rally his Romans to attack the Gauls or to leave them in peace.
Asterix in the actuality: The Golden Menhir - Cacofonix as a music hero
Last Wednesday (October 21st, 2020) Le Menhir d'Or (The Golden Menhir) was released in France. It is an adventure from the comic book series written and illustrated by Goscinny and Uderzo. But it was not that of real success. Hopefully this time, it will be! Cacofonix or Assurancetourix the Bard is the main character in this quite unknown adventure. He is going to show his talents outside the Gaulish village in the hope that he will win The Golden Menhir.
Asterix in the actuality: Asterix and the Big Fight
In 1989 Astérix et le Coup du Menhir came out in theatres in France. In my country, in the Netherlands it came out on the 12th of October 1990 … 30 years ago! It happened to be on my birthday. This movie is based upon the comics 'Asterix and the Big Fight' (1966) and 'Asterix and the Soothsayer' (1972)
Here is my rendition of the movie poster and VHS/DVD cover in LEGO form!
Here is a better look at Le Devin, the soothsayer and his name is Prolix. In the Dutch version: Xynix which means: I don't see anything! He is an extra antogonist in the Asterix the Gaul playset. Prolix conspires with the Romans to subdue the invincible Gauls but Asterix is not very susceptible to this Gaulish soothsayer ...
A better look at some Gaulish heroes that back up Asterix!
Perhaps the best way for LEGO is to let him look like Obelix by merging these two concept minifigures together into one. In the picture you can also find two Dogmatix dogs. A small one but that one is brown and Idefix/Dogmatix is white, so I also added an existing white dog. But my preference is the small LEGO chihuahua dog in white and with black pointy ears. Obelix can also hold him in his hand as Obelix often does in the comics.
To be continued!
Note: check the newer Obelix in the updates above. I made a buildable Obelix with a bigger belly.
