    Pictures later on. But a few initial thoughts.

    The snakeman with the rattlor body does indeed have some black plastic in places. However, the paint does not seem to come off when moved. Tight joints, I'm pleased.

    Now for the lighter colored snakeman, all 3 have the Spikor/Vykron stuck right shoulder syndrome. Other than that, their fine.

    Subscription Mekaneck, DB Skeletor & Snake Warriors ARRIVED!

    Just got home from work to find my subscription Mekaneck, DB Skeletor and Snakemen two pack arrived! Glad to see them since I had not received any shipping notice from Matty this month (like many). Pics will come but it's late and I've got to get up early for work. Quick thoughts:

    Love Mekaneck - so classic and perfect. Yes, as PixelDan's video showed, his big triangle eye helmet thing seems like it should have been a little lower but it's ok - nothing I think I would have noticed had PD not pointed it out!!

    DB Skeletor - not a fan of variants - never have been BUT I love that I do finally have a classic toy Skeletor now by swapping the original armor and head onto the DB Skeletor buck. Feels right and I'll be keeping this version on display. ALSO - the final mini comic! WOW - it's good. ARE YOU READY FOR SPOILERS? DON'T READ FURTHER if NOT!

    The comic is cool -
     
    lots of characters featured, but basically He-Man, She-Ra and crew team up with Skeletor and his evil warriors to take on Hordak and Hiss. Clamp Champ is the one who kills Man-At-Arms, and NA Skeletor makes his debut! Also, yellow skin Evil Lyn appears to be on either Hordak's or Hiss's side - fighting Skeletor.
    So much more but it is pretty cool - LOTS of eye candy!

    Snakemen two pack - very cool. Love the parts and options but I won't be displaying them - wouldn't have bought them as I'm not really into army packs or generalized figures. The Rattlor sculpt is freaking cool though!

    Ok, nuff for now

    ..and the "Spoiler Tag" (for those that want to be surprised with issue #3, myself excluded) I'm going to read it and then its off to be shipped.

    I hope I get my shipment today, it shipped on 9/15 and it usually takes 4 days to arrive. First thing I'm going to do is check for QC issues and I hope I don't have to "take the black" (a little Game of Thrones humor Lol) Then I'm fixing Mek's helmet and see if I can add the yellow snake man head on King Hsss's snake form with a little slice and dice action.

    Just arrived today. The Snake Men are looking great. The orange one does have black plastic limbs but the paint apps on mine are solid. The other one is molded in yellow, which is a great sign. The only flaw on them is the paint rub on their hands from the weapons. The paint really just peels off :/

    Mekaneck is also a great figure, no paint flaws on mine. After inspection, it looks like the helmet will be more difficult to remove as I dont want to scratch the paint off. Spikor's lazy eye was way more of an annoyance than this.

    DB Skeletor looks good too. The dragon still looks goofy on hand as he did in the pics, which I don't like. My Skelly chipped at the shoulder/bicep point upon the first twist. I'll add some pics to the QC black plastic issues later. Least favorite of today's shipment.

    Well since I don't even have SLL here in Canada yet, ask me in 2 months how I like the new Snake Men, Mek, and DB Skelly. Mine haven't even shipped yet.

    This is the variant I was least looking forward to due to the closed mouth of the dragon and no fire feature, unlike the added thunder punch effect with TP He-Man, but you know what? He pops in person. The colors are really nice and the Khan boots are awesome.

    However, I have other plans for him. The dragon head will be a new dragon character and the armor will be lost to create a hybrid Vintage Alcala Skeletor.

    The figure as is - Not bad




    Now with the Alcala effect!




    Draego Man's brother - Drogon






    Vintage Alcala style

    Such a shame Mattel ruined this possibility for me with their ******* black plastic!!
    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.

    You mentioned that the yellow snakeman is molded in yellow plastic does this include the hands, also is mekaneck in blue molded plastic or is it painted?

    I really like these, but I don't think I want more than two sets. They're great to fill out the ranks while the other three core members wait, but it's those core members that matter more to me than the army.

    The cool thing is the four heads are similar in color enough for you to use them on any body, more options. Wish the weapons weren't in hand while packaged, really outstretched the grips. The weapons themselves are pretty awesome.

    That Slush-Khan would look great with the blue snake man armor.

    Your Pictures are awesome as usual SCB. Vintage alcala is better than I thought. Too bad about whats inside him. I'm glad you think the Dragon head "POPS" in hand. I don't think I will ever like it though. Is this real?

    Yes, the yellow hands are molded in that color. Mekaneck, however, has painted limbs - his shoulders down to his hands and hip joints down to his feet (minus the ankle joint). Mine received an excellent paint job which I'll have to take care of to keep it good.
    Also the red button from Stinkor's armor does fit well on Mek's back, looks much better that way.

    Just got my package today, opened the box to check Mechaneck and his goggles looked perfect to me. Grabbed the mini comic to read, I'll open and display later, but the mini comic actually blew me away. Gettin the feeling that the $50. Beast/variant slot is gonna go to smash blade he-man and terror claw Skeletor.

    Still do not have my figures as of today. They haven't zig zagged but are taking forever this month.

    Also crazy is my day of order is beating my sub order with my Snake men order that I had to do seperate lagging behind.
    Gaping holes in my collection: Regular old Teela, Weapons pack 1, Power & Honour book 1, SDCC artbook (maybe)
