    What do you guys see in vintage Rattlor? He's naked compared to the 200X General version...looks more of a henchman than those Snake Men warriors that we are getting. I'm not being crass or anything, I'm just curious.

    I'm sure Rattlor will be an awesome representation of the vintage version with that nice color scheme (I wish they paid that much attention to Frosta's back) and sculpt, but I prefer...aw, hell....you know which version of Rattlor I really want. Chances are the line won't last long enough to get to a variant with the MYP coloration, 200X armor, the bracelets and greaves, so I'll have to take the nekkid version.

    Agreed completely! I Like him but he is so bland in comparison. He, like Mekaneck, received no 200X nods and I feel cheated. It really seems like Mattel hates that era. Mine will be getting the shoulder armor from the snakemen 2 pack for now.

    Great review. Actually looking forward to him now. Wish we were getting the armor but if I was a betting man we will be getting it in s weapons pack with other left out weapons. I think mattel has found away to make even more money.

    I bet you see the armor in weapons pack 4 as it is already sculpted. This was stated towards the end of the video.

    Dan, can you confirm the colour of his ankle pegs. They look to be cast in red and painted blue.

    Also, how soft is the loincloth?

    I'd rather have a repainted Rattlor variant released somewhere down the road made from existing parts that included the armor. I think the 200X armor without the greaves and bracers is like putting He-Man's chest armor on an Oo-Larr figure and passing it off as He-Man.

    Way too soon to be asking for a Rattlor variant. Releasing the armor later is the best option.

    He'll never look like 200x Rattlor with the MOTUC scale anyway.

    He looks great IMO. I think he looks better than both of the previous versions.

    LOVE HIM!
    He looks JACKED!!! I know the armor for some give him the feel of a leadership position but I think the unarmored raw look makes him that more dangerous as a general who gets it in as well (but when you see the reg. with armors it does drop him down a bit)! But they did say the armor is existent and will find a way to him down the road!

    His scales are the armor, much like Khan and King Hsss.

    Rattlor is the first figure since Kobra Khan that I am really excited for. This year has just been filled with characters I do not care about or issues so bad it ruined my enjoyment of the line.

    BTW, this year seems to be the year of the necks.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    Vintage Rattlor is just a darn fine design. Rattlor was one of the few characters that I liked equally in both 200x and vintage.

    Honestly, the main reason vintage Rattlor rocks, is the color scheme. It might be the most vibrant in the line. Then of course he has a unique sculpt.

    Personality wise, Rattlor will probably always be MYP for me and even a lot of vintage fans. He was intelligent, cunning, and a leader. He had actually had character development in MYP.

    But with or without armor, the vintage toy was a unique sculpt, awesome paint, and looked like a snake.

    Rattlor has never had a bad figure.

    I'd still love to get a General/MYP variant one day. And of course I still prefer the 200x/MYP version of King Hsss and Evil Lyn, but Rattlor has always had good designs no matter what.

    Just putting it out there that Mattel could reuse that nearly 100% tooled Rattlor buck and some Evil Warrior or Draego Man forearms and boots for a rather easy variant sometime after 2014. If people want the armor to make the 200X version of the character, then that's the best way to do it.

    Releasing the armor later is the best option.
    That's the worst option if you want a 200X Rattlor. I believe that there's no point in releasing the armor in a Weapon's Pak--releasing the armor, but not completing the rest of the look that it's supposed to go with. It's half-hearted. Like getting the Filmation Hordak armor, but no Blue Hordak to wear it. Do it right, rather than half-ass it.

    He'll never look like 200x Rattlor with the MOTUC scale anyway.
    I don't care about the girth, I just want an armored Rattlor that looks like the MYP version.
    The size was never an issue since everyone in Classics is the same size.

    Love the sculpt. The colors scheme is perfect. I don't know what is it about the the Snakemen...including Kahn(evil warrior). But the scales & detail of them are amazing. Can't wait to build the ranks of the Snakemen. They could possibly be the best looking representation of a faction in the Classics line. Don't mind the King Hiss hiccup.

    Looks like the neck piece is a slightly different color. Otherwise a flawless figure.

    I'll be using the armband on my UK Horde Prime.

    Well it's the Classics line. The armor would be the most reasonable compromise to getting an ultimate Rattlor, rather than permanent forearms and shin pads.

    i think for me it just boils down to the fact that i don't like the 200x hyper-anime stylings and design choices ... i much prefer the more basic and less cluttered vintage stylistics ... for me it's effective and simple, and the 4H are bringing them to the modern day in an amazing way ...

    and obviously im a huge vintage purist too

    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.
    i hear ya man ... totally the same here but it was my late grandfather ... this figure is heaped in nostalgia for me

    This is what I think of every time I see that armband on Rattlor.
    Absolutely ! And Hordak also deserves "The Rattle's Elbow" along with it !!

    MOTUC Rattlor is GREAT ! No doubt !! But for me, I am not too impressed with his head sculpt, he looks kinda goofy in my eyes (I repeat... that's "In My Eyes" ! ) ! Maybe that’s because I love 200X General Rattlor so much. I always liked the 200X version for it menacing head sculpt, three finger claws, two toed feet & that bad ass armour ! Not to forget that cool action feature too !!

    Well, I know it’s not possible any time soon, But I would LOVE to see the 200X version hitting the classics line one day !! Having said all this, I am so thrilled of getting the classics version as of now.

    Oh BTW, AWESOME Review Dan ! Thank You Very Much For Your Work !! Can’t wait for DBS Review !!!

    (Off Topic: Hey, have you filmed DBS yet ? If not, can you include a shot by trying DB armour on Keldor's body WITH TRU Skeletor Head ? If you already filmed him, even a PIC would helpful in a GREAT WAY !)

    I was middle of the road on Rattlor, and I even saw him at SDCC, and I was like meh. But really, after seeing this, I'm a lot more excited for him. The Horde armband is awesome!

    The armor could easily be released in a weapons pack, and it can kinda go on anyone, doesn't have to be specific to Rattlor. Might be fun to spruce up a third snake guard out of it.

    I don't understand the love for Rattlor either. I mean the MOTUC version is pretty nice--a great update of a lame vintage figure--but it's not mind blowing. That said, there's never going to be a biologically different 200x variant. They could have gone the Zodak route, but decided not to. 0% chance of MYP Rattlor ever happening. So I'll take the armor in a weapons pak. Maybe they can add the bracers and such too.
