    Kobra Khan discussion

    There seems to be very little talk about this character, so let's discuss the possibilities.

    What do you think the head, or heads, will look like?
    Will he come with his little lizard buddy from MYP?
    Will he have a unique torso, or would they maybe create a thin armor piece to fit over an existing torso?
    What will the bio be like?

    Wouldn't it be better to make a generic reptilian torso, to use for other reptilian characters later? That's not something they did for the 80's toys necessarily because of all the action features, but if you make a scaly/lizard torso you can use it for Kobra Kahn, Sssqueeze, Rattlor, Tung Lashor, Snake Face, probably even Whiplash and Saurod if they get to him. Maybe King Hiss too, although who knows how he'll work out.

    i always liked kobra khan as a kid, id love to see him with a more broad chest, like a monster would have, something slightly larger than the he-man body sculpt. but i like his character. i was always into rogue characters who kind of stood out on their own. hes a definite must!

    What about that head?

    Let's put this on the table now...Khan has the same problem as Leech does...his head was an action feature so the mouth had to be wide open. Now the mouth doesn't have to be open on both those figures making a brand new "Un-Classic" face. (A pity they can't do the Filmation Khan--I thought that was his best head ever)

    His second head would probably have a hood.

    how bout a movable jaw? i really hope they retain the white lips. since he'll have basically a new head, as you mentioned, the paint apps will have to bring out his classic-ness.

    and he should definitely have a new torso. anyway, can't wait to see what they do with him!

    True, the head will be a problem. I think it should be 2 heads: one with a hood and one in "normal" mode. Given the past tendencies, I believe Kobra Khan will have the Skeletor body (since action features are being deleted) plus a very Filmation style head (both if he comes with 2 heads). If they want to give him a little lizard buddy (a la 200X) that shouldn't be a problem along with his vintage blaster. That's how I'd see a MOTUC Kobra Khan being released .

    As long as he has his hood, removeable or not, I'll be happy.

    Well, here's what I'd like to see:

    I don't care if we get the hood or not, so with the two heads I'd like one with an open mouth (not just open, but angry and like he's in the middle of spitting or about to take a chunk outa someone) and a closed mouth head. I think the hood could be easily worked in without being perminently attached to the head, so it should be able to work with both heads.

    I don't care to see Zodac's gun again, but whaddayagonado? That's how they are making these, so he'll come with the same gun. At the very least, I hope we see a unique weapons built for him as well, since the gun is so tiny anyway. Probably another small weapon to offset the cost of having two heads.

    I'd also like to see one of the first new torsos, since I think he needs one. Even if no other figure originally used it, I don't think that means they can't use it again anywhere else. Any new body part can also be used to make some new stuff, so his newly sculpted torso can just go towards other lizard/snake type figures.

    I do not like the hood, makes him look like an old male orangutang,
    just give him an updated vintage head!

    what is this "hood" you all speak of?

    are you refering to the "spitting" skin that he spreads out?

    i think i wouldnt want it "out all the time" like the 200x, it would be like having mekeneck only having his neck long. so i would be down with two heads, or even a "clip on " option.

    Yes, people mean the "spitting skin", which spreads out like a cobra's hood when he sprays his venom. I wouldn't mind a clip on option, but there are so many possibilities.

    I also just noticed his belt/shorts are unique as well, so unique tooling would be necessary.

    I'd love to see Kobra Khan as a MOTUC figure like he looks on the vintage cardback!
    I hope his mouth will be halfway open since the action feature is not going to be used anyway. I think it'll look better. He must have the "Zodac" gun as accessory. As an extra bonus, a REMOVABLE MYP 200x Cobra hood would be awesome.

    No point to having it open now, since it won't spit water. That's a case where the action feature ruined the look of the character. With no action feature, they can correct this now and give him the head he should have had.

    Now Khan could have an unprecedented THREE HEADS (One original head, one "no action feature" head, hooded version of the "no action feature" head.), but if Mattel didn't want to do that for Teela, no way they'll do it for Khan.

    I'm hoping for two heads as well. One, like in the mini comic, and another like the 200x with his...uh, "flaps" out(?) We don't need the large mouth w/o the action feature. I would like to see a broader chest as well. Make him like a real Snakeman and not just "an offspring" of.

    Khan should come with 2 heads (hooded and not so), his pistol (just like Zodac's), and his little lizard-pet from MYP. That would be tops in my book!

    Same here. And to save on money (maybe) the hood could just be a removable piece and then no need for a second head.

    Zodac gun and his lizard buddy. I was just thinking the same thing while I was checking out my Webstor figure.

    I also feel a closed mouth with a movable jaw is the way to go. Put his jaw on a hinge similar to Trap Jaw

    Hinged Jaw, removable hood (maybe you have to remove the head to remove the hood), Zodac Gun. That's all K Khan needs. maybe the lizard buddy , but I wouldn't be angry if he doesn't have it.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I predict he won't come with two heads; he'll have a classic-styled head without a hinged jaw, Zodac's gun, and a hood that fits over his neck if you pop his head off and pop it back on to mimic his 200X appearance.
    ATTENTION:
    I have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Khan has to have two heads, hopefully a vintage inspired one and a MYP styled one. I love the hinged jaw suggestion, I hope that becomes a reality since we don't have his misting-spray feature. I'm not in love with Zodak's blaster repaint, so maybe we'll get a little flair on Khan's.

    I cant see any need what so ever for an extra head, just a removable hood.
