    Go Dan! Three down, three (well, technically four) to go!
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    Thanks again Dan!

    OH MAN CAN'T WAIT. I dunno how they keep doing this, but they keep putting some of my all time childhood favorites in my birth month. Rattlor was one of the few that was almost always in my hands; so much so that I brought him with me into kindergarten one time on accident even though it wasn't show 'n tell day. Didn't even realize he was still in my hand!

    Anyway, I love this guy and he looks absolutely perfect. Certainly a stand-out figure.

    I've never been a fan of the Snakemen but this is a nice looking figure.

    Ah. I'm going ahead and just say it...Rattlor is the most beautiful figure in the line. At the very least tying with Teela. Rattlor is just so visually appealing to me.

    It disgusts me seeing him with the Horde though. It's just not right.

    Nice review Dan. Particularly good comparisons this time as well, since Rattlor has three of the best He-Man figures ever produced. Rattlor *puts on sunglasses* strikes gold every time.

    Dan, is it just how it shows up on the video, or is the coloring of the neck extension a good bit darker than the rusty red of his body? Not a huge issue for me personally, but it did seem to stand out a little from certain angles.

    Eh...he was a Horde member at one point in both the Filmation series and the mini-comics, so I kinda like the nod. Hope Tung Lashor has one too when he comes out.

    The nod is fine. I'm fine with him coming with a Horde armband. Big fan of She-Ra, the Horde, and Filmation.

    It disgusts me seeing Rattlor with the Horde in any modern incarnations. Rattlor is a snakeman. End of story.

    My personal preference, of course.

    Of course.

    I do like the way it comes about in the bios though. He's not a traitor so much as hanging out elsewhere biding his time until he can regain his reputation, take out Kobra Khan and return to his rightful place.

    He tweeted a pic of Cy-Chop in the midst of the new arrivals earlier today, so figuring he got that one too. Very interested to see that video.

    Excellent preview, Dan ! This is a figure that I'll buy for sure ! Great look, nice tight articulations, vibrant colours, little or no flaws... This is a must buy in my book !

    This looks like another home run! I hope Cy-Chop's Horde belt will fit around him, that will look awesome along with the arm band and a crossbow!
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    Really great looking figure, ...but he looks as though he has blue under his arms in the posed shots rather than red... more dreaded black plastic or blue connectors (the elbows look like blue connectors)...

    October is going to be an exciting month!

    Pure perfection! Amazing sculpt and colors on this guy!

    Rattlor was one of my favorite Snake Men as a kid. I also can almost kinda sorta remember getting him. Pretty sure my Grandma (RIP) got him for me. I remember looking at his fantastic cardback art in the car after exiting whatever the store was. So yeah... Blinded By Nostalgia™ in other words.

    Great review again Dan!

    Can the 200x General armor fit on the MOTUC Rattlor?

    Is it also possible to have some comparison time photos of the snakemen 2-pack and Rattlor after the 2-pack video?

    thanks

    He needs the blue arm pegs and discs due to the outside appearance. The blue lines on his outer arms look great... imagine if he had brown pegs and shoulder discs? This was the right choice by Mattel!
