The Star Pointer is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is a mass-produced, sea urchin-based Badnik model created by Dr. Ivo Robotnik, and a variant of the Orbinaut.
The Star Pointers are similar to Orbinauts. They possess a green color scheme and a black line across their spherical body. Unlike the Orbinauts though, the Star Pointers have four crystalline yellow objects orbiting their body rather than spiked balls.
One time, the Star Pointers joined up with Penguinators in an assault on Knuckles the Echidna, and later Sonic the Hedgehog, in the Ice Cap Zone. Despite their superior numbers, Sonic and Knuckles still managed to destroy the Star Pointers and their cohorts quickly.
