    Did anyone watch the panel video? It was so hard to hear but when the question of the arm cannon came up Scott looked at the 4HM and they said they'd look into it. I also could not make out anything else they said about it but it sounded like MAA was a rush job to show it off. I hope so, I like the fig but it does feel a bit lacking.

    He looks just fine. The snake head is a second head he comes with. His look is based off the New POWERS OF GRAYSKULL "The Legend Begins" Mini Comic. So Mattel shouldn't have to chage his look to 200x. It's a "VARIENT" Not a new sculpt. Varients have slight changes or different paint apts from Orgininal Nothing more.

    Armor for his right arm and leg, and the 200X hand canon.
    Good Trades with: MOTU_Maniac, bmoore, Riddle of Steel, sandrockgundam04, Brian Ozone, and blue monkey.

    i actually really like the silver armor on him but would prefer what he's got for mix matching.

    200x cannon blaster & a helmet-less myp head would make him the perfect figure.

    Uhh... no. I'd rather they use the Man-E-Faces arms or Roboto arms painted green. The legs might work as well, assuming that the Roboto/MEF knee works with the furry boots. That still leaves the left foot though.

    I'll try to do a photoshop mockup of this if I have time...

    Yup, the armor should have been silver and he NEEDS more accessories before I'd ever consider buying him.

    To be bluntly honest, they can add the arm cannon or the ponytail head, but this won't make Snake MAA more desirable to me.

    Snake Man-At-Arms is part of those variants I was secretly hoping I'd never see in MOTUC, along with the other Smashblade, Wolf Armor or Samurai horrors.

    I only want the vintage variants, plus 1 or 2 200x ones (Ice Armor He-Man, Inferno Skeletor or Snake Armor He-Man, for instance). That's all.

    I'll definitely pass on Snakeman Man-at-Arms.

    Please give this receipe a try that I posted on page 1 of this thread:

    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.

    Iīd 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
    Positivity, folks!
    Letīs all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    Here's my preference for Snake MAA:
    No Changes! He is fine the way he is.

    But additions are a must, he is too bland otherwise:
    - Arm-Blaster-Cannon
    - helmet-less head with ponytail

    These 2 things have been the #1 most requested accessories
    for a MOTUC Man-At-Arms since day 1!

    Heck, I'd even remove the Serpent Ring in favor of these 2 additions!

    Now that Snake Man-At-Arms is being released, I'm positive he'll have a big role in the mini-comic as he will be packed with Mini-Comic 2 of 4.

    8) Snake MAA, will he have the arm cannon from 200X? CornBoy (4H): It's not in there right now (something else, inaudible). TG: Right now he doesn't, it's something we talked about. We want to make sure he's plused up with something a lot more than just a head. We'll keep looking into that. If it's in the budget we'll get to it.

    Silver paint would be a must have for me personally.

    If its just a ring and unhelmted head as extras, I'll pass.

    i'm very happy to have other variants other than he-man & skeletor.
    the snake m@a is a good addition to motuc. it would be fun to display him in different ways. the great unrest m@a with no mustache, mustache version & snake head m@a. i'm crossing my fingers he will get the myp pony tail head.
    but yes additional accessories would make this a kick ass figure. gun cannon & myp head. i would be very satisfied.

    I was just thinking...both TP He-Man and Snake MAA appear in the mini comic. I wonder if we might deduce who the next variant is for 2012...

    I don't recall any other variants showing up in the first issue though, unless we get ----- in her --------- cloak...
    MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeleteen, Prince Keldor, Captain Randor, The Great Black Wizard, Lady Slither, Spirit, Tuvar, Baddra, Cursed Marzo, Tug-O-War, Scrollos, Songster, Mini-Comics Spirit of Castle Grayskull, and for the love of the Sorceress and Julie Winston, ODIPHUS!!!

    I just made a poll for people to vote on their favorite color scheme for Snake Man-At-Arms. Please, cast you're vote. I'd love to see what the collectors really want.

    The version they've shown is Filmation Man-At-Arms. I have wanted that since the first MOTUC MAA came out.

    IMO variants shouldn't need a ton of changes to make them worthy. The changes should be quality over quantity. Everyone loves BA Faker and all he has in new armor.

    I think BA Faker is one of the worst figures, and he is the only figure I don't own, besides original Grayskull! Well and Molar... thats just never gonna happen for me!

    I would love if Snake MAA had:

    200X blaster
    unhelmeted head
    keldor swords- might as well pack them with someone
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    Agreed, I'm hoping they keep his current paint deco as I'm more interested in a toy accurate Man-At-Arms, than a 2k snake hunter version in MOTUC. In fact I'd prefer if they lose the blue tank and create a 100% toy accurate color scheme, since with the 2 packs gone this is the only way to buy this deco. I'd actually prefer if all the snake hunter variants stayed in the 2k line, I've already got a box full.

    I do hope he's going to have the extra weapons the first release had, along with some nice bonuses like the BFG the 2k fans want, and maybe a new weapon, a Man-At-Arms themed shield would be cool!

    I understand why some fans are disappointed, though not the outright rage. I certainly don't want to see the line overrun with repaints, but if the occasional TOD Sorceress or Snake Man-At-Arms are needed as a cost saving measure I'll enjoy them for what they are, and the tooling dollars they'll hopefully generate for future figures like Ram Man and Modulok.

    Helmetless head

    200x arm cannon

    Leave the armor orange. Silver just doesn't make any sence. Why would painting his armor help him fight the snake men? I hated the repaints of the 200x line. Maybe a bonus accessory even, like a Filamation power sword! (not bloody likely)

    I'm with you 100%.

    If his mystery 2nd head is an unhelmeted, pony-tailed head, then all he needs is the 200X arm-cannon, and he's perfect.

    As partly said in the first message from Berserker79 I would prefer Snake MAA to come at least with :

    - 200x arm blaster
    - Any Whiplash parts (in particular shoulders)
    - Ponytail MAA head (to go with the regular MAA)
    - if possible more paint differences... a silver armor would have been a good idea.

    Just watched the MYP cartoon episode "Second Skin". Man at Arms does NOT have silver armor in that episode. FYI for those that think his armor should be silver because of the cartoon. The figure in the 200x toy line (MOTU versus Snakemen) had silver armor, but not in the cartoon.

    If anyone has pics that show SILVER armor in the MYP CARTOON, I will happily retract what I said. (Without being photoshopped, of course)
