    King Hiss--which of his 3 skins do you want?

    This poll basically gauges interest and is multiple choice. (Yeah we know the original version is sure to win, but this is to gauge the other versions in comparison.)

    King Hiss, like Roboto, is a character with the same multiple versions. Whereas Roboto could download himself into possibly three different bodies, Hiss could wear different skins for different effects...

    Original Figure King Hiss

    This was used to fool people into thinking that he was heroic.

    Mini-comic King Hiss

    Same purpose as the original figure, but this one is unmasked, with a craggy looking face and burly body. Designed by Bruce Timm of JLU fame.

    200X King Hiss

    This skin isn't hiding at all--I guess you don't need to when you rule Eternia and everyone has been transformed into a Snake Man.

    Using ALL of these options, it's a way to refresh King Hiss up to three times. Of course the snakes underneath would stay the same.

    Original again. I cannot wait for them to release good ol King Hiss in the Classics line. I loved this figure as a kid. I soooo use to creep out my sis with him.

    I'm a big fan of the 200x look! That one gets my vote, but I have a feeling that we would most likely only end up getting it in the form of an additional head if at all.

    BTW: Hurray, I finally have an acceptable email address! I've been lurking on here since 2006!

    My vote goes to original and mini-comic appearance. Bring back his creepy human disguise!!

    I always viewed his mini-comic and toy appearance as the same. I just think the toy was made with a lot less attention to detail.

    As far as the 200X figure goes, I don't see any need for him to have a human looking skin. It's way to evil looking and defeats the purpose. No self-respecting Snake Man would wear a human skin, unless it served a purpose. Especially the King of the Snake Men.

    I vote for the mini-comic version. I always thought that version was much more menacing than the toy version. I would also like to see the 200x version somewhere down the road. Maybe as a bonus figure.

    For me mix of original AF and minicomics design, not 200x influence!

    Original Toy for me. I love them all, but that one was my favorite. I hope his Snake form is really well done, though...

    Because of his snake form, I think Kink Hsss will be considered as a "large scale" figure.
    The only way to make him have a normal and a snake form is to have 2 figures or an alternative bust.

    I don't think we will see a King hsss with both forms at 20$.

    Personally, I voted for maskless and 200X. I've never liked the "superhero" King Hiss. But I definitely wouldn't be opposed to all three coming out eventually as ways to refresh King Hiss.

    I voted for 200x. I was never a big fan of the original and dont remember the mini comic version. 200x version I thought was very cool

    Orignal with mask, very super-hero like indeed.
    Probably the only snakesman i'm gonna buy.
    I liked the old toy, just he should simply have been another of Skellye's evil warriors rather than the leader of a new faction.
    If i remember well, however, in the ol comics he occasionally worked with Skeletor (and of course both planned to betray the other), while he had an healthy dislike of the useless cabbage-bat thing known as hordak (man, i would really liked the evil horde never happened, what a waste of creativity).
    His 200x version, on the other hand, is just another plain enemy to Skeletor as he is to cabbage head hordak and mr. muscle he-man. A shame if you ask me.

    The maskless mini-comic skin for me hands down!
    a superhero mask (like batman & robin) is unfitting for a king imo.
    The myp 200x looks too much like a pharaoh.

    I love the original version.

    The mini-comic version is really cool too, I think.

    I really don't like the 200X version. I can do without that.

    I voted for the mini-comic version because I think he actually looks more MOTUC-style than the actual vintage masked figure, AND he justifies the NA Lizorr possibly being a Snake Man, because of what King Hiss says about ruling thousands of planets AND because he talks about a "Timelesss dimention..."

    I also don't care for the 200X version all that much

    Bruce Timm made a dorky looking toy look awesome. I liked MYP's take on him.
    With the amount of new tooling required I doubt we will see him any time soon, if ever

    yeah, I didn't care for the original toy with the mask.The 200x toy there was room for improvement (he was short & the snake didn't have the detail I expected).
    I loved the 200x cartoon King Hiss he looked so sinister and powerful. I would like a toy like that.

    A big question comes to mind. How will they incorporate the snake underneath the skin?
    That would be something to decide on. Have any good ideas?

    I voted for the original toy skin, but I think an extra head of the maskless variant would be cool. Then again, his armor pieces might be seen as excessories. In that case, we're looking at probably six pieces minimum on that alone. I'd expect them to do the arms in two pieces like MAA's left arm. So, there might not be enough funds for an extra head if they do the staff and the shield too.
