    Please identify: Custom or genuine prototype

    Can anyone identify what this is?
    It's located in China from a seller selling a bunch of other MOTUC parts...

    Is it a genuine snake men prototype that got canned or a clever custom, if the later, where are the heads from used in that custom?

    Not sure what that head is from. Probably another line and they put the wrong parts together.

    Val, ...what about the 200X-y looking snake hands? ...& I agree about the head, too small, but cool nonetheless!

    I think that head is from some version of Spider-man Lizard, probably Ultimate or some other redesign version. But the hands seem to suggest possibly otherwise, it looks like the arms are molded pieces instead of the heads plugged into the wrists. What about the armor, is that reused from MOTUC?

    What's the seller's name?

    100% NOT a prototype - unless Mattel started stealing old molds from old Toy Biz figures.

    Looks like a custom. If you need another random Snakeman, this might be very exciting...

    I'm still clueless on the head-hands, I can now see where they plug in but it's behind the bands.

    How many copies did the seller have?

    The hands are also a version of Spiderman Lizard, probably from the Toybiz line.

    The heads on the arms are also old Lizard heads, from a Spidey line.
    Does Galactus fart?
