    Snakemen need tails...

    The one gripe I had when the Snakeman two pack was announced was their lack of tails. They always had them in the MYP cartoon series and it would have created another possibility to differentiate the warriors from another...

    Well yesterday I FINALLY received my September shipment and immediately did what I had planned all this time:







    The tail has a total of three cut joints so there are quite a few poses he can take.
    It's the repainted tail of a Hellboy figure by Mezco btw...

    I hope you like it.

    BTW: Still working on my Bionatops It'a a whole lot of sculpting and sanding that needs to be done...

    GREAT!

    The figure modified is much more realistic and cool than the original!

    That looks really cool. Great job matching the paint color, too.

    It looks great, but I must say that I prefer them without the tail. In my opinion, the tail makes them look more like Lizardmen than Snakemen. The Snakemen look like just that... Snake+Man, a snake head an a man's body. Adding the tail looks good, but changes the dynamic so that it looks like a lizard that has learned to walk upright.

    Based on the response, most will think I'm crazy, but it's just my preference and opinion. With that said, whether he looks like a Snakeman or a Lizardman, he still looks great!

    Awesome idea.

    I prefer diversity in the snake men - some with tails and some without. When I look at my snake men collection, I see 2 with tails. Rattlor and Copperhead (the Royal T sculpt that 2-Bad designed). A snakeman with an extra tail here and there could represent those who were converted vs natural-born snake men (or something along those lines).

    Simple but very effective.

    Looks great and i seriously hope THE FOUR HORSEMEN or better MATTELs design team sees that and use it for Ocatvias tentacles and maybe for a new Snake Men character!?

    Great job and awesome idea!
