This is one where they should pack two heads.
The vintage toy head needs some improvement, but I don't want a 200x head on a vintage-styled body. It looked fine on the staction, but a heavy vintage-influenced head is a must for me for this line.
In a perfect world, I would want Sssqueeze to be like this:
1) A direct translation of the vintage figure's design (head, armor, etc.).
2) He would have two sets of arms; regular and stretched arms that can swap
3) he'd have two sets of hands; regular and snake heads that can swap on the stretched arms
4) his gun is a mechanical weapon, not a pet
In a perfect world he would have bendy arms but alas we do not live in a perfect world . But seriously if he ends up with non-articulated arms like Octavia I'll be passing on yet another snakeman
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
2) Right on!
3) Again, totally with you here.
4) That's a gun? I always thought it was a staff, but since his arms were bendy, he had to have a staff that wrapped around his arms. Either way, like the Horde members so far, I expect him to come with a repaint of the Snake Men staff, especially if there's a lot of new tooling and already extra accessories because of the arms and hands.
Since bendy articulation is off the table, I wonder if they could do something similar to what LEGO did with their Doctor Octopus figure:
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
Im interested in seeing what they do with a weapon for him. I would be down for a repainted snake staff, and as for the snake accessory he originally came with, I have no idea what it is. i hope they include it,just wondering what it actually is.
1. Classic vs 200x. How do you want Sssqueeze. Different armours and different heads or 2 separate characters?
Same characters, just update the head to a more snakelike look. 200X armor, but please give TJ's legs a rest.
2. The arms - how would you want Sssqueeze's arms - as attachment? As bendable rubbery plastic with a wire?
Well we know bendy is out. So I'd like to see extensions, use arms that plug into the wrists like TJ, HP, etc.., same or similar length of his existing arms. Give those arms the snake heads with the same joint. You could use either hands or heads, and get more than one Ssssqueez and have arms around the block.
3. The snake gun - should it be more "pet" snake or more mechanical?
Pet. I haven't seen a snakeman with a gun. KK doesn't count, he's a descendant, not a snakeman.
4. Should any other parts of Sssqueeze (e.g. the neck/legs) have the same feature as the arms?
Just the arms.

I bet squeeeze will be The next figure reveal.
Clearly the teeth on the vintage figure were a mistake and not supposed to be painted white, like flat human teeth, lol. I think the "teeth" were supposed the be the same color green as the figure.

It doesn't look good for Sssqueeze to enter the Classics toyline, and thats a shame cause we cant complete our snake men...can someone tell me I'm wrong!

Trade my Red Stone He-Ro Staff for a Green one
Well he should be moved out of speculation now, he looks great although he is one character that should have gotten a snake staff, i still dont understand what his accessory is supposed to be, a pet?
While I'm really happy with the final product, I do wish he'd have gotten the extra head, as it was so different. However if they are still planning this head pack, I hope its a part of that. The Snake staff part doesn't bother me, but his purple creature was always a shaped blaster in my head. If it was his pet, I thought more paint apps would be added much like Kobra Khan's pet Fang/ Pixel.
JITSU!!!! Thank the Elder Gods!!!!

I speculate that he will be released in 2015, and despite Mattel's claims that they will never use bendy material again, he will have bendy arms.
It is a shame that he wont be getting a regular set of arms !!
I seriously hope they at least make his long bendy arms removable, so that the regular arms can be offered someway in the future ! Even if it happens to be in 2016 !!
Matty Has Been Matted For 2017 !
Now I Seriously Hope Super 7 Makes Me Feel I Am In Heaven !!
Why are folks clamoring for regular arms for Ssssqueeze? I feel like I'm missing something here... it's like asking for legs for Roton and Twistoid.
