    Changes for Snake MAA

    What for changes do you want for Snake MAA?

    Maybe Mattel will change some things...


    My opinions:

    200x arm blaster
    Whiplash torso and shoulders
    silver armor

    I think he's getting the 200x arm blaster.

    I wouldn't want Whiplashes torso, only his shoulders.

    I never liked the silver armor. I would have to see it photoshopped!

    I wouldn't want a silver armor and scaly skin too, this would beat the point of mixing and matching with the original MAA parts.

    Add the 200X Arm Cannon/ Blaster and I'll be fine.
    Actually I'd consider buying 2 in that case...

    Yep, that would be a reason to buy 2 for me, too...

    Stick Drago Man's wings on him and have him come with the front jet sled bit frm SDCC 2O1O's Battle Ram exhibit model and you have a deal... I'm more on the attack as regards Snout SPout, though. That figure needs a bit of 2OOX love. The NECA staction was awesome.

    Hector,

    HKs repaint; just to show the silver colourscheme.
    Not the big shoulder persee.

    I like the toy accurate deco as-is, with the lighter green and orange, brown fur, etc. I understand that even though it's subtle, the development costs are the same as a more dramatic re-deco. I also understand that the quarterly variants are supposed to present some low-tooling cost opportunities, so I won't ask for too much.

    The only change I'd like is another accessory or 2, hopefully something new. A regular MAA head seems obvious and it would be great for those who don't have the regular version, but I'll be more selfish and hope for an extra head that's more special than that.

    His 200x arm cannon was pretty large, so I think a "Classicized" version could be made a little bit smaller and not add too much cost.

    I also wonder if he's going to have the weapons on his back. If there were new weapons, possibly snake themed, that could fit back there it would be nice. I'm at the very least hoping for the regular weapons so his back doesn't look empty.

    If all else fails, toss a Draego-Man shield, Keldor swords or some other bonus that doesn't have to be related to the figure.

    THIS would probably start a whole new level of Mattel hatred campaign...

    I compiled a list of changes that would have made the perfect Snake Man-At-Arms in my oppinion.

    I used Bubble Power She-Ra as a reference for the idea.

    The parts I like:
    Snake-Head - awesome sculpt. Easily one of the best ones in MOTUC so far.
    Snake-Ring - logical addition.
    200x paint ops - again, logical repaint.

    I´d love the inclusion of some new accessories, though:
    - Arm-Blaster-Cannon
    - chestarmor frontpiece with lowered chin-guard (as Duncan sported in the MYP cartoon when in "civilian" mode)
    - helmetless head with ponytail (again, as in the MYP civilian mode)
    - Clip-On big shoulderpad. Duncan could enlarge this piece of his armor in the MYP cartoon from small (like the current MOTUC version) to extralarge.

    And this would be the receipe of body parts I would have chosen:
    - Roboto torso (no ab-crunch, but the details would match 200x armorsuit)
    - Horde Prime shoulders and biceps
    - regular male lower right arm and hand
    - Bow lower left arm
    - Trap-Jaw left hand
    - King Grayskull loincloth
    - regular male legs
    - regular male right boots and foot
    - Trap-Jaw left boot
    - He-Ro left foot


    If there´s someone out there who can do a mock-up of this receipe to illustrate the result, that would be awesome!
    Positivity, folks!
    Let´s all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    200X Arm Cannon
    This was the weapon that 200X MAA originally came with. You can't do a 200X MAA and leave this out.



    Unhelmeted MYP head

    Those are the two essential 200X MAA items. Except for leaving out those things, I think Snake Man-At-Arms is a fine figure.

    The gray MAA armor can be left to a Weapons Pak rather than sell a third figure.

    And by keeping the helmet original blue we can use the first release for displaying orange.

    Calderon, your movie colours custom of a while back would have been great too.

    What do you use for digibashing that picture?
    Could I do it with corel Draw?

    I use Photoshop, it's easy to add color correction layers to final art and make variations. Not sure about Corel.

    I don't want them to change anything. This is the Man-At-Arms I wanted in the beginning - brown boots instead of black, and lighter green arms and legs.

    My opinions:

    200x arm blaster

    silver armor

    i'd be fine with these two.
    wouldn't like whiplash torso and shoulders, instead: just extra dreago man's hands
    matching the colour of the face.

    i just want a helmetless head...I don't want any other changes...I like the colors. I found silver was just an excuse in the 200x cartoon to merit a variant. this is just a nice clean repaint to give us a toy accurate maa without screaming repaint at us. An arm cannon would be nice too but just the helmetless head is all i'm looking for.

    Isn't an extra head coming anyway?

    I like the idea of the silver armor, for no other reason than that's the armor MAA was wearing when he was changed into a Snake Man in the cartoon.
