    Snake Men Guards discussion

    Absolutely the best of the bunch in my opinion. I think the rest were a mixed bag. That's not to say they were the only good ones, but even some of the other good ones seem to be getting a mixed reception due to some of their features.

    Am I right in saying that the darker/brown Snake man shares the same furry loincloth desing as Snake MAA and that's a new loincloth design? I also think the scaled undies of the lighter/yellow Snake man is new also. I don't think that's the only new parts outside of the obvious (heads and such), so I'm wondering what potential parts re-use there might be for future figures with those parts.

    Personally I think the chest guard on the yellowish Snake Man could be modified slightly to make a good NA He-man chest guard (or even a He-man/He-Slave figure if it came with a switchable part like Bow's heart symbol on his armour).

    I like them... Are they just snake men guards or are they key characters?

    Just foot soldiers, IMO.

    Well that's the assumption I'm going with until I hear otherwise. Personally I think people like Pixel Dan would have informed us if they were actual known Snake men. Plus with Spikor and Frosta looking the way they do it would be an astounding about turn to go with what would possibly be radical departures for the characters.

    I can't wait for these. The only good reveal imo.

    Great sculpts, I love the MYP aspects and the cool weapons.

    It'll be a bit harder to make 4 unique guys than it was with the guards, but perhaps some boil-and-pop parts-switching can create a couple of unique, 2-toned snake men. =)

    The snake warriors destroyed the other reveals in my opinion.

    Also, since the snakemen have two very different sets of armor along with the four heads, you can actually make more combos than you could with the palace guards in my opinion. The similar palace guard armor was great, but since the snake warriors are unhelmeted, the different looking armor helps a lot.

    I am slightly disappointed that one of them isn't green though.

    I'd be in favor of painting the orange one green.

    I agree, these were the BEST figure reveals we got today!

    I thought the exact same thing. I wasn't expecting them and they just completely overshadow anything else revealed at NYTF 2012. I can't wait to get these two!

    The 200X/MYP inspiration is definitely there and couldn't have looked any better(in my opinion) for generic snake warriors.

    Having all of the Snake Men be green would probably look a little bland. Besides, the bright colors remind me of a coral snake, which happens to be one of the most venomous snakes around.

    Agreed! I'm not seeing anything in that artwork that looks as menacing as these two army builders.

    They look very 200X/MYP-esque, which is absolutely great! Can't to order a few of these... Let's just hope they won't get delayed until 2013!

    Yeah, I was very on the fence with this idea, and was kinda hoping it would take along. but again, once I saw what 4H did, they are technically the release I am most excited about.

    Getting Spikor, someone I wanted to see most.
    Getting Sir Lazer Lot, who I absolutely adore. I love everything about this guy, so excited.

    But these snakemen are going to round out a thin group, and look great doing it. Want to see more. Going to get two. Prolly only one at first, and pick a second set up later on eBay or the MOTUC Marketplace on this site.

    I really doubt it. It'll be much like the Palace guards, where only Lieutenant Spector was mentioned. Here they'll most probably mention General Rattlor and that they were trapped inside the void until Khan and Evil Lyn freed them.

    I'm sure after "Real Name" it will probably say "Various" since there's at least 4 variants that could be made with this set. That way they're leaving it up to our imaginations. Probably something they should have done with Buzz-Off's real name as well.

    Snakemen Army builders should have two shields and spears.

    It seems like the snakemen will only have one shield and spear per pack. I think they should have two of each like the palace gaurds. If not, then they should at least release a set with a weapons pack.

    Rising costs, blah blah...I'm sure, had they been in the 2013 bracket, we would have gotten more accessories with them. I'm with you, and hope they'll be released in a weapons pack, sooner, rather than later.
