I think the name says it clearly enough. Saurod is clearly derived from "saurus", which comes from the Greek "sauros" meaning lizard. In modern times "saurus" is used in the scientific names of most dinosaurs and many other extinct reptilians, though not snakes.
So, a lizard man, not a snake man.
MATTEL you owe me a SNAKE TORSO!!!

The name Saurod seems to come form the word "Sauria", which is the family that lizards belong too - but does not include snakes or turtles. Having Saurod and Lizorr be of the same race makes more sence.

Oh for the love of the ancients not again!
SAROUD IS NOT A SNAKEMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
as for his affiliation -he's a mercenary/bounty hunter he works for whoever pays him the most.
"How I loathe heroes! Always getting in the way and acting so... so... heroic!"
please check out my fan fics at:
there would be three lizard men counting saurod.
lizard-man filmation good guy & master, saurod 87 movie evil hunter for skeletor & lizzor n/a evil mutant.
there were some others from filmation like king pythos.
Since I'm not against the idea of Saurod being part of the Snake-Men I'll decide if he'll be displayed with them once he is made (hopefully VERY soon). Vintage Tongue Lasher obviously isn't based on a snake either.
But who knows maybe Saurod will end up standing close to the evil warriors next to his movie colleague Blade...
Press down on dragon's head. It will bite off your frickin' fingers !!!
I'd love to know what they will name the figure (as his real name). The actor who played him in the movie was Pons Maar, which is the most awesome name ever! Would be cool if they could do some sort of play on the actor's name for Saurod's real name (like Marrs Pon, or; Pon of the House of Maar, or something).

Love, friendship, or respect, do not unite people as much as a common hatred for something.
I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.
Perhaps Saurod isn't a lizardman...
....but a human with a (cultural or personal) fetish for cybernetic implants that mimic lizard limbs & appearances...

Just calling for him to be an "augmented" human because the whole "Lizardman", "Snakeman", "Toadman" thing is a bit overused....
