    king hiss staction

    I am looking at my snakemen, lashor included and I can't hep but feel the need to publically beg the four horsemen to redo hiss into a staction. I thought it would be interesting to poll this and see what you all think.

    So let's pretend a hiss staction was confirmed for a soon upcoming wave but it could not have an interchangable torso what would you like to see released?

    Myself it would have to be hiss in his snake form and really terifying looking with snakes everywhere!

    Just imagine what the guys could create!

    The human form of the toy isn't perfect.....but the snake form is just SAD.

    Snakes all the way, though I REALLY vote for 2.

    Snakes in wave 8

    Human in wave 9

    or whatever

    This was extremely hard to determine, because I want both equally. I voted human, though, because a more charismatic and evil looking human form with a cape and everything will look better leading the rest of the snakemen at the moment. Getting a snake-form version is still a must, but maybe after.

    Really tough call, though, because I'm anxious to see a REAL 4HMized snake Hiss.

    I'm thinking, if you have a human suit that snaps in and out, techincally that's not articulation, is it?

    I voted for Human.

    But an alternative torso & head would be welcome.

    A "Deluxe" Staction maybe?





    Hey, what are the chances of getting a Deluxe boxed staction every wave to go with the 3 carded stactions? He-Man & Battle Cat anybody?

    I voted for snake form. I'd loooove to see a proper dynamic King Hssss in his true form, with his hydra like snake body. J-sun's custom toy of that was very inspirational.

    If he was made couldn't it be possible to do both as one figure?

    The snake form and the human form could be seperate upper bodies which click onto the legs, or something. I don't think that would be classed as an action feature.

    I agree, that would be the perfect solution. Seeing as the 'stactions' come with click-on accessories, I'm sure it could be done.

    Sssnake Form! He would look absolutely incredible with the tender touch of the 4H to his mass of venomous reptilian heads.

    But I'd be interested in the snake form as an exclusive, so as not to take the place of any unmade characters.

    This is something at the top of my need list. I'd like both in the same package, but if only one is possible, then snake form all the way. The king hssss toy was just crappy all around. But I felt the snake form was the worst part.

    Oh lord, HUMAN FORM!!!

    I find the Snake Form boring and a little goofy. A tangle of snakes on a pair of human legs...ugh. The human form originally had that great wicked smirk, and the new one just had a frown. I want to see them fix that! Also I'd like to see him with at least one arm bent at the elbow so he can hold his staff upright.

    Unless it is a major re-design, I want the human form. Those five snakes look stoopid - even in the cartoon. He seems to go from being a single being to a... ...group. Also the fact that he loses his arms when all of his followers have arms seems like a disadvantage to me.....

    Personally, I think Snake Face would have made a better King Hiss, but it's waaaay to late to change THAT now

    The only time Hiss looks good as a snake is early on in the MYP transformation, when the main snake head pokes out of his helmet...

    No, but howsabout Cringer?!? I don't know about the rest of you guys and gals, but I've been waiting for a Cringer since the *original* cartoon aired. Not just a naked Battle Cat either! Cringer was a main character, and he deserves immortalization (is that a word?) in plastic... staction plastic that is.

    A Cringer & Orko set has been due for many years. Why mattel kept giving Orko crappy accessories is beyond me.

    Could you imagine if we got a Cringer and (correctly sized) Orko staction!!! Manufacturing costs wise, it is very do-able. Neither need any accessories (except for Orko's wand). The only problem is that the 4HM/NECA would have to have to pay for the licence of two characters on the one staction (I'm pretty sure).

    Back onto the Hiss issue - I don't want no deluxe box sets! He is not popular enough to support such a thing and these sorts of crazy releases have the potential to kill the staction line.

    I'm not going to vote because my selection isn't there. I would like for him to come with parts like he did back in the day. You can clip them on so you have both forms.
    Auto-reply: out of the office until further notice, please shoot me an e-mail below or wait for a long time to hear back... happy MOTUCing

    I did vote but none of the two possibilities matches my wish for a King Hiss staction... why that?

    I'd like him to be just in between. Cast in the second he changes from human to snake form.

    I voted for the human form... but after rethinking my choice it could be great to see him in snake form, since it would be more than just a rehash of a pre-existing figure.

    SNAKE FORM!

    Well said and I agree it's a very tuff question to answer. In the end I went with human form.

    I went with snake form because of the awesomeness of Snake-Face, I know Snake-Face would have still been cool without the snakes all out and so would King Hiss but Hiss will be way more awesome all snaked out and I believe Bigger. I would think just King Hiss in Human Form would be about the size of Hordak, while a Snake form Hiss would be some what closer to Tung Lashor's size... I can just see the awesomeness now. Hopefully Hiss comes with a couple of SnakeMen relics from the cartoon that would be cool too.
