    Not bad at all. I like the extra heads. Going to buy at least two sets!

    Love these guys. I'm getting two sets.

    I would also love it if they repainted these guy a couple of shades of green and offered them online. If you don't like that idea don't buy 'em....

    My only real complaint is that both lack a tail. It would have been nice if at least 1 of them had a tail like they had in 200X. In fact a removable tail would have made for even more army building options.
    LOL! The tails are Hyper Anime Detail.

    , that old chestnut.

    I'm wondering from seeing the Snake men's short sword/spear weapon if you can stick two of the short sword parts together (whether just the sword parts or each end of the staff part) and make a Darth Maul style double bladed staff.

    You beat me to it MGM. I was just getting ready to post the caps of the designs I got.


    That shield is straight of the minis. I hope it comes with 2 of them.

    The detail is insane on these. The little spear is a snake mouth opening and the blade is the tongue. Looks like Rattlor will have a long loincloth which is cool by me.

    Two sets for me.

    Is the armour removable?

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    Maybe they are going to release another army builder snake men pack down the road, with these basic bodies but in new colors and with new heads and armors.

    I love them! I'll get two sets and I'd love to see a rerelease in greens as well, with different colored armors for extra swappability.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Hmmm, let's take a look to the possiblities of combinations

    For example:
    Yellow SM with head 1 without armor
    Yellow SM with head 1 & armor 1
    Yellow SM with head 1 & armor 2
    Yellow SM with head 2 without armor
    Yellow SM with head 2 & armor 1
    Yellow SM with head 2 & armor 2

    Not bad for 1 figure

    Agreed...I don't see why they can't re-release these with dif color scheme, maybe some new armor or weapons. easy money for mattel, the way i see it, its a win/win for us and mattel.

    These are freak'n amazing!!!

    They seem with very few items and I hate seeing reptiles with belly button (they come from eggs, why the bellly???).

    The royal Guards got two long battleaxes, two shields, one hand axe and one hand club.

    Each guard with 6 removable armor pieces, 2 armors and 4 interchangeable plates. We must get more armors in order to customice the Sname Men...

    Easily my favorite reveal from Toy-Fair (and I liked most everything), just wasn't expecting to love these as much as I do. They are just amazing to look at!
    sub

    And those worried about Horde Troopers, those will be used to help sell a sub either next year or 2014.

    That's what I'm thinking as well. 2013 probably ends up being Ram Man, Horde Troopers, and Mantenna (Maybe? Have a feeling he's not coming in 2012).

    I think it is strange that people complain about belly buttons, but have no issues with limbs on snakes.
    It is a fantasy line that shares body parts between figures.

    They're pretty cool but Snake Face, Rattlor, Squeeeze or Tung Lashor would have been cooler.

    I don't have my Hiss in front of me to check...but is his human head removable? I wonder if this army builder head with the open mouth would work well on his human body? A mid-transformation head.

    They are certainly the best thing revealed. A definite want for me unlike that horrible and cheesy sir crapalot.

    Totally unexpected and very welcome. The positivity in this thread certainly shows that fans are not just negative for the sake of it. People actually react negatively to figures such as Spector and that blue crap because they are horrible.

    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!
