    Although I liked General Rattlor, I prefer Rattlor...'The General' was a horrible name choice...Howzabout 'Rattttttlor' (similar to King Hsssss) or 'Radlor' (comparable to Radimus Prime) or 'Rattlar' (similar to Extendar)... 'The General' just seems so nondescript.

    Either way - this will be an interesting update. The head is guaranteed to cause a big stir. I hope they don't make his head all goofy looking like the original. Hiss's snake form head looked cool though (IMO). That's a good sign.

    No it's not!

    King Hsss' snake heads have polarized fans.

    Well, the main head's sculpt in itself was decent - except for the rabbit teeth.

    (Honestly, I like Hiss - no complaints from me there.)

    I personally wouldn't mind seeing them as 2 seperate characters

    More characters = more toys

    MGM's way is the best, so that they look completely different

    If Matty plans to release Rattlor and The General as two separate Snake Men warriors, then I hope they do the same with vintage and 200x Sssqueeeze! Those two versions of Sssqueeeze are about as much the same as Kobra Khan and Kamo Khan!

    Let's have a MOTUC Sssqueeeze like the vintage and another character with the snake hands.

    I don't understand "Rattlor" is trademarked by Mattel.

    Depends when the trademark was made. Some trademarks that weren't possible for the 200X toys are now possible!

    I'm kind of torn with this guy...

    I like the idea of the General being a seperate character with different features/armor/etc...but,

    With only King Hssss currently on the table we see some of the tooling(/) that will be used for the remaining Snakemen i.e. arms, legs, calves...

    That leaves me with questions like:
    Will we see a new scaled torso, or will it always be a scaled armor overlay?(adding removeable armor to an overlay would be hella bulky and likely reduce arm articulation/poseability)

    King Hssss has unique forearms, will the other Snakemen use the same forearms or will they get new sculpts to allow for fins, bracers, etc...?

    Those are examples of some of the things I think about regarding product development of the Snakemen specifically Rattlor and the General.

    Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions? Issues or tissues ?
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    slackrguy GREAT comment. I'm being serious btw not sarcastic.

    I mean the Snake Men need new tooling. You can't reuse parts for them!

    Now I'd prefer 2 versions of all the Snake Men. And then they E-mail you when the figures brought to our sight. And then you pick which version you want 200x inspired or vintage. Mattel could easily make everyone happy and make more money to! Incase you want both versions! But if they had to do a hybrid then do him like this...

    I think that the 200x head is a direct update of the vintage figure so make a hybrid head, the neck should be half yellow and half redish brown and they could make them blend into each other because his chest is yellow while his back is brown, most important part about this figure NO HUMAN HANDS 200X ONLY removable armour and your done!

    I want The General and Rattlor to remain the same character - as Rattlor was Rattlor in 200X.

    They should just label him as "General Rattlor" on the MOTUC card.

    He should come with only 1 head - a mix of the vintage and 200X Tyrannosaurus-Rex head.

    2 weapons and removable 200X armor as well as extendable neck piece.

    Same problems with Extendar and Mekaneck, without the action features Rattlor will be useless...
    I will wait then I will decide if I have to buy the Rattlor from the Eighties!
    About the tail, I think that it should be like the Whiplash one.
    However I want too much Rattlor! I think that's time for another Snake Men!

    Yay!....my first post . I too think that the differences between Rattlor/General are not so great. A removable armor and an amalgam of both heads would suffice. What I do want to see with MOTUC Rattlor is him being produce as a deluxe, "bulked up" both in mass and stature like his MYP incarnation (I know it won't happen, but I can dream can't I!)

    The General's animation model is quite different, but his toy wasn't.

    Absolute BAD-@$$!!!


    I don't care for the stubby looking legs on the vintage Rattlor, so I hope his legs are longer like the MYP version. That said, I too think that the Classics version could be easily solved by making his 200X chest, wrist and shin armor removable.

    I know. That's why I say base the General from the MYP animation colors.

    Rattlor

    So I noticed Rattlor has a Horde arm band on his left arm, much as I think I recall him having back in the min-comic after he and Tongue Lasher were pulled from the portal. Is it removable? I'd assume it will be, so you can display him as either Horde or as Snake-Man. And did they say whether or not he will have a neck extension? I think they nailed him perfectly here.

    Neck extension is right next to him. Horde Band has always been removable, so I see no reason for it not to be here.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    Has been sick lately?

    I would have liked Rattlor to be a bit bigger and the blue stripes to be less bright. Plus I'm not too ken on the head sculpt from the pics I saw. Hopefully Tung Lashor fairs much better.

    He came out perfectly. I would even consider MATTEL to release General Rattlor as a separate character with a different head, armor and a slightly toned down paint job.

    Personally I'd like to keep them the same character. If they were to release a version more like the 200X version then I'd like to see him a bit bigger than the MOTUC snake men, but not as big as he was in the 200X toon (I don't want to see him towering over everyone). I think he would look cool if he had the 200X armour, a new paint job and head sculpt, but he's more in the style of the Snakemen guards.

    Maybe they are making him the traitor in the line and he helps defeat King Hssss. This could be how they explain him being a Horde member....

    I reckon they'll do a variant of him if the line keeps on going (I hope so!) The eys make him look like he's constantly looking up, but I really like him
